• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

"Nicktoons" is Nickelodeon's official term for their original animated programs (but that is not the subject of this page).

Nicktoons (previously known as Nicktoons Network and Nicktoons TV) is also a sister network of Nickelodeon launched in 2002. It is Nickelodeon's 95% animation channel. It was mainly meant to compete with Cartoon Network and Toon Disney and started as a vault channel for Nickelodeon's huge animation library. In addition to running the animation that was first-run on Nick at the time, it also served as a vault for the animated shows that they didn't air anymore, like The Ren and Stimpy Show, Rocko's Modern Life, Doug, and Aaahh Real Monsters.

Old name and logo, used from 2005 to 2009.

In 2006, it aired their first original show: Kappa Mikey. This followed with other independently-funded acquisitions it made in the later part of the 2000 decade, such as Skyland, Shuriken School, Edgar and Ellen, Ricky Sprocket, Three Delivery, The Secret Show, Wayside School, and Making Fiends,... 90% of them created in Flash.

At around 2009, less and less original Nicktoons were shown in favor of more action-oriented animated programs, presumably to compete with boy-focused Disney XD and Cartoon Network. Two live-action programs, The Troop (with a few animated special effects) and Big Time Rush (totally live-action) also aired on Nicktoons. All of the aforementioned original toons were either playing in the graveyard slots or scrapped, and they were investing in strictly superhero adaptations of Marvel Universe characters; with Disney having bought out Marvel Comics, that might change soon...

In 2010 Dragon Ball Kai (Nicktoons' first Anime and Nickelodeon's return to showing anime) aired along with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2003, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise's first showing on a Nickelodeon network since Nickelodeon acquired the license. Saban also to reran Power Rangers episodes on the network following its reclaiming of the series from Disney.
