An Interview with Mathew Klickstein
Author of SLIMED! An Oral History of Nickelodeon's Golden Age
Kudos, Mathew Klickstein, you beat me to it.
Mathew, a kindred nostalgic Nickelodeon fan, has compiled an oral history featuring over 200 interviews from the men and women who imagined a kids-only domain of rule-breaking freedom, mess, fun, and slime, and who unarguably gave us some of the best memories of our childhoods. Don't you wish you'd thought of befriending Marc Summers and the entire Nick Nation first?
We are the generation who dream of Double Dare challenges, Clarissa Darling's style, and all the many things you can't do on television - but that Nickelodeon did anyway.
I spoke with Mathew about his endeavor to compile the book and its exploration into the aesthetics, sounds, animation, concepts, behind-the-scenes scoop, and creative decisions involved in making what resulted in the "Golden Age" of our hallowed cable network.
If this book isn't already in your loved one's (or your own) Christmas stocking, then I'm officially calling you to action! Go green for the holidays, and get SLIMED!
