The interview with Mathew Klickstein here was just…all over the place. I read it as very condescending to women, to minorities, and to those who have brains. Next to the definition of “dudebro” should be a photo of Mathew Klickstein and his hat and beard. This dude needs to get the entire fuck out my face.

There is no era of television that inspires such a pure, fervent nostalgia as the Golden Age of Nickelodeon. During the late ’80s and early ’90s, the network aired wonderful and strange series that changed the world of children’s entertainment. This Thursday, New York Super Week will throw a “Nite of Nickelodeon Nostalgic Nonsense!” at Hammerstein Ballroom to celebrate these timeless shows with actor appearances, performances by Polaris (of Pete & Pete fame) and the duo behind Doug’s The Beets (Fred Newman and Dan Sawyer), and more. Mathew Klickstein, the event’s moderator and author of SLIMED! An Oral History of Nickelodeon’s Golden Age, spoke to Flavorwire about the event, our persistent love for this era, and why he believes Nickelodeon’s desire to diversify its programming is “exploitive and predatory.”
