Videos Featuring Clips From Nickelodeon USA's "Nick New Year's" Specials From The 1990s

2011 is very nearly over, and 2012 is fast approaching and very nearly here, and to celebrate the brand new year, below are five Classic Nickelodeon videos featuring how Nickelodeon USA celebrated New Years in the past and counted down to midnight on New Years Eve to ring in the New Year in Nickelodeon style.

The first Classic Nickelodeon video below features Nickelodeon USA's "Nick New Year's '96" special, which Nickelodeon USA broadcast between 31st December 1995 and 1st January 1996 to ring in the New Year:

This is all of the host segments from Nick New Year's '96, which aired on Nickelodeon on December 31, 1995. I also included some classic Nick "New Year" bumpers, the "New Year" Nick Day commercial and a promo for the new year of SNICK.

Nick New Years '96 was hosted by Mike Maronna of The Adventures of Pete and Pete and Lori Beth Denberg of All That. The entire special was filmed live on location, in front of Nickelodeon Studios in Orlando Florida.

Now, here's the thing. I ran out of tape at the end of this video BUT.. I KNOW I have the rest of it somewhere on another tape. Unfortunately, I have no clue as to where it is. So, when I do find it, I'll post the rest of the host segments. Hopefully I have the ending when the Gak Geyser goes off, I don't remember if I do or not.
Below are four more Classic Nickelodeon videos which feature Nickelodeon USA's "Nickelodeon New Years 98" (also known as "Nick's New Year 98"), which Nickelodeon USA aired to celebrate the end 1997 on New Years Eve 1997 and the first brand new day of 1998 on New Years Day 1998, which was hosted live in a Nickelodeon studio by Nickelodeon Stars Amanda Bynes (from the classic Nickelodeon shows "All That" and "The Amanda Show"), Lori Beth Denberg (from the classic Nickelodeon shows "All That" and "Figure it Out" and the classic Nickelodeon Movie "Good Burger"), Danny Tamberelli (from the classic Nickelodeon shows "The Adventures of Pete & Pete", "All That" and "Figure it Out") and special Nickelodeon New Years Eve correspondents Stick Stickly (presenter of Nickelodeon USA's "Nick in the Afternoon" programming block) and Twiggy (or Twiggi) who presented "Nick New Years 98" live from beside Nickelodeon's famous Green Slime Geyser which was located in front of Nickelodeon Studios in Orlando, Florida, USA (also known as the Nickelodeon World Headquarters For Kids) which was located inside Universal Studios Florida who helped Nickelodeon viewers to count down to midnight January 1st 1998 to ring in the brand new year at which point the Nickelodeon Slime Geyser erupted and exploded with Nickelodeon's green slime to celebrate the arrival of 1998 (fourth video below, which also features kids celebrating the arrival of 1998 around Nickelodeon's Slime Geyser which is erupting at Nickelodeon Studios in Orlando, Florida, USA, and also includes the very first moments of "1998 on Nickelodeon", and Amanda Bynes, Lori Beth Denberg and Danny Tamberelli singing a very special version of Robert Burns' famous Scottish poem "Auld Lang Syne"). While counting down until midnight, "Nick New Years 98" Hosts Amanda Bynes, Lori Beth Denberg and Danny Tamberelli read out Nickelodeon viewers' New Year resolutions, showcased Nick viewers' drawings and letters, and answered Nickelodeon viewers questions back in the Nickelodeon studio. The Classic Nickelodeon streaming videos below also feature a few classic Nickelodeon "Happy New Year" Idents/station IDs and a few Classic Nickelodeon commercial breaks/advertisement breaks which include Classic Nickelodeon promos/trailers for Classic Nickelodeon shows such as "The Wonder Years" and "Aaahh!!! Real Monsters", and a Nickelodeon promo telling viewers that they could join in with Nickelodeon's New Years 1998 celebrations at the official Nickelodeon website, Nick.com, or on America Online at AOL-Keyword: Nick, plus a look back at the highlights of the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards 1997, including a bit of Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards 1997 footage featuring Rosie O'Donnell, who was that years Kids Choice Awards host, getting slimed with Nickelodeon's signature green slime.

Two Christmas Nickelodeon Idents

Below are two Nickelodeon Christmas Idents (Station IDs). Unfortunately, there isn't much more information about the below Nickelodeon Christmas Idents, such as which country's Nickelodeon channel they were made for and broadcast on, although they could be from Nickelodeon Germany/Nickelodeon Deutschland as the YouTube uploader, Kanal von VIVAdeu, is based in Germany:

The first Nickelodeon Christmas Ident below features a Nickelodeon Orange coloured Santa Claus Christmas present toy sack which is full of the alphabet letters that make up the word 'Nickelodeon' in Nickelodeon's current logo font fall to the ground, which then makes all the letters that make up the word 'Nickelodeon' fall and tumble out of the sack and rearrange themselves to form the word 'Nickelodeon' to make up the Nickelodeon logo:



The second Nickelodeon Christmas Ident below features eleven Nickelodeon Christmas presents wrapped up in Nickelodeon Christmas wrapping paper [Nickelodeon Wrapping Paper] unwrapping, unraveling and opening themselves to reveal that each present contains a alphabet letter from the Nickelodeon logo, which then combine to make up the Nickelodeon logo:

Bring joy to the world; it's the thing to do. But the world does not revolve around you. Don't be a jerk, It's Christmas

There's a sign above the line that says "Express." That means ten items or less. Don't be a jerk, (don't be a jerk) It's Christmas

Be nice to babies and animals, old folks too. Cuz that's how you'd like them to treat you. 'Tis the season to be jolly not jerky, (jolly not jerky)

Nickelodeon's "NickMas" Christmas Holiday Shorts

Below is a streaming video that features a montage of Nickelodeon's famous "NickMas" holiday specials shorts and two "NickMas" Nickelodeon Christmas bumpers, which Nickelodeon USA premiered in December 2002 as part of Nickelodeon USA's Christmas celebrations and to advertise Nickelodeon's Christmas programming, and are still shown on Nickelodeon channels and Nickelodeon networks around the world even up to this day. The "NickMas" Nickelodeon Christmas specials you can view on the video are a "Seasons Greetings" Nickelodeon Christmas bumper featuring Tommy Pickles from the NickToon "RugRats" and Jimmy Neutron's pet robot Dog Goddard from the NickToon "The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius" putting up some Christmas lights, "Plankton's Holiday Hits" CD commercial, "Nickelodeon Holiday Party" (stop motion/stop action), presented by former Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards host/presenter Rosie O'Donnel, "The 12 Days of Nickmas", "A Nickelodeon Chuckie Finster Christmas, Channukah, Kwaanza, Winter Solstice" featuring the cast of the Nickelodeon original animated show "RugRats", "Nickelodeon Presents How the You-Know-Who Stole You-Know-What!", "Nickelodeon Presents The Nutcracker Suite" starring Cosmo and Wanda from "The Fairly OddParents!", two "Nickelodeon Presents Patrick the Snowman" NickMas shorts, and a second "NickMas" Christmas Nickelodeon on-air bumper featuring SpongeBob SquarePants riping his pants while delivering a Christmas gift:



Below is a lot more information about Nickelodeon's "NickMas" Christmas shorts from the Christmas Specials Wiki page for the "Merry NickMas" Nickelodeon Christmas shorts:
Merry Nickmas

In December 2002, Nickelodeon ran a series of short Christmas-themed vignettes/interstitial in their commercial breaks to advertise their annual Christmas programming. Each of the shorts featured the characters from the network's animated shows, often parodying classic Christmas works such as those of Rankin/Bass. These shorts continued to be aired annually on the network through 2005.

As part of the event in 2002 and 2003, two specially-made pieces of animation were made for station ID spots used on the channel, both in the Rankin/Bass claymation style - one in which Goddard helps Tommy Pickles hang some Christmas lights, and another where SpongeBob SquarePants rips his pants while delivering a Christmas gift. These particular animation pieces were also used in bumpers shown whenever the specials themselves went to commercials.

Synopsis of each segment

A Chuckie Finster Christmas, Channukah, Kwaanza, Winter Solstice

A parody of A Charlie Brown Christmas, featuring the characters from Rugrats.

While the other Rugrats are off skating, and singing about how "Christmas-Channukah-Kwanzaa-and-Winter-Solstice-time is here", Tommy and Chuckie walk over to the nearby fence, where Chuckie admits that he thinks he has a problem ("Diapie rash?" Tommy assumes). Chuckie goes on to quote Charlie Brown's speech from the beginning of the special being parodied, adding in mentions of Channukah, Kwanzaa, and Winter Solstice. He then proceeds to list activities associated with said holidays in addition to "sending cards and decorating trees", during which snow falls all around him and Tommy, covering them up entirely and eventually muffling his voice.

Later, in Tommy's playpen, the Rugrats are all dancing to a jazz-based rendition of "Jingle Bells", with Dil playing piano and Spike on guitar. Eventually, Angelica (in the Lucy van Pelt role) calls a stop to the dancing to tell them all that Chuckie is coming with the decorations. During this, Spike mimics her movements behind her, and she makes a threatening glare in his direction. Chuckie comes in with a box containing a tree (just like the one Charlie Brown found), a menorah, and some corn, but he's still desperate for someone to tell him what the holidays are about. Tommy offers to do that himself, and proceeds to deliver the following speech in the manner of Linus quoting the Bible:
"Lights, please. And there were, in the same country, people of different backgrounds, beliefs, and cultures. What ho! This shall be unto you a time of joy, peace on Earth, and goodwill toward peoples."
Angelica responds to this by screaming, "You blockhead! It's about the presents! Lots of presents!" The rest of the kids immediately agree upon this and all wish happy holidays to Chuckie. As the segment closes on the Rugrats all whistling "Hark, the Herald Angels Sing", an announcer tells us that the segment has been brought to us by Dork Krabby Mint Patties. Mr. Krabs from SpongeBob SquarePants then makes an appearance to endorse the advertised food.

Holiday Party

A parody of the Rankin/Bass claymation specials, particularly Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.

A snowwoman caricature of Rosie O'Donnel (voiced by herself) opens up the segment saying that "if I live to be a trillion and two, I will never forget the year Goddard the 200-Watt Dog saved Nickmas." She then remarks that we all know that story, and what she's here to tell is the after-party that occurred immediately following that event. As Rosie's narration goes on, we see her observing that very party going on in Santa's workshop. She notes of everybody being there, including Yukon Chinelius, Winter Squidler, the Abominable Starfish, and of course, St. Nick himself (who laughs to the tune of the Nickelodeon channel jingle). We see Mr. Krabs and two identical crabs performing on stage, and everyone enjoying their music so much that Carl Wheezer goes breakdancing.

Naturally, Rosie remarks, this party had some rather juicy things going on. First up was gossip - SpongeBob SquarePants reveals to his fellow elf, Jorgen Von Strangle, that "I don't want to be an elf, I want to be... a fry cook." Surprised at this, Jorgen tells it to Jimmy Neutron, who relays it to chief elf Zim [Invader Zim], who responds by screaming, "Who's SpongeBob?! TELL ME!!!" Then there was flirting - we see Yukon Chinelius bragging to Debbie Thornberry about his apparent battle with the Abominable Starfish, all the while Dil Pickles (as Happy) is bouncing on the Starfish's belly in front of them. And of course, adds Rosie, there were embarrassing photos - SpongeBob ripping his pants, Plankton trying to kiss Helga Pataki under the mistletoe, and Goddard taking a leak by the tree.

In the end, though, Rosie tells us all that the characters all remembered the spirit of Christmas - "to put aside [their] differences, join [their] hands together, AND OPEN PRESENTS!" As the characters all dive at their presents under the Christmas tree, Rosie comes in and leads the characters in wishing the viewers "Happy (insert holiday choice here) to you!"

How the You-Know-Who Stole You-Know-What!

A parody of How the Grinch Stole Christmas starring Angelica Pickles from Rugrats.

All the Nicktoon characters in the city of Toonville like Nickmas a lot, with the major exception of Angelica, or "Grinchelica" as the narration refers to her. The narrator reasons that her hatred for Nickmas might be because her pigtails are tied too tight or because she can't find her Cynthia doll, but apparently the actual reason is because she believes she should have all the chocolate candy to herself.

Grinchelica rides into Toonville on her Malibu Cynthia sleigh, pulled by her cat Fluffy, and sneaks into the houses to steal all the chocolate goodies. Among them, she steals chocolate figures of Ultralord ["The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius"], Phil and Lil's chocolate worms ["RugRats"], Rudy's chocolate chalk [Rudolph Bartholomew “Rudy” Tabootie from "ChalkZone"], and Zim's chocolate candy cane that came all the way from Planet Irk ["Invader Zim"] (which he is not willing to part with despite being apparently asleep at the moment). Just as Grinchelica has finished her theft, the smallest Toonville citizen, Plankton Lou Who ["SpongeBob SquarePants"] ("who had one eye, not two"), walks in on her and asks, "What is going on here?!" Grinchelica tries to think of an alibi, but instead she just pats his head and kicks him back into bed.

Grinchelica returns to her mountain hideout with the stolen chocolates and parks her sleigh on the very top of the mountain. From her vantage point, she stops to think about how the other Nicktoons are going to be disappointed when they wake up on Nickmas morning and find that there's no chocolate for them. But she ultimately decides that she really doesn't care about that, because as far as she's concerned, the candy's all hers. She then feasts on the candy until her stomach has grown three hundred sizes.

The Nutcracker Suite

A short performance of The Nutcracker starring Cosmo and Wanda from The Fairly OddParents!

As the Nutcracker Suite begins to play, Cosmo and Wanda appear onstage, wearing tutus. Cosmo gives Wanda a nut, and she presents him with a cracker. "SWEET!" they both yell, and then toss their given food into their mouths. They then proceed to dance around the stage, while making loud munching noises on their respective snacks to the tune of the music. Jorgen Von Strangle briefly appears to sing the last few bars of the music piece, and the pair then swallow their snacks. They take their bows as the offscreen audience throws roses at them.

Patrick the Snowman

A parody of Frosty the Snowman starring Patrick Star from SpongeBob SquarePants and the kids from The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron.

As Nigel Thornberry [Sir Nigel Archibald Thornberry] from The Wild Thornberrys provides narration, the short opens with the kids building their snowman, which comes out looking like Patrick. Upon finishing it, Jimmy decides that all it needs now is his latest invention, the Spoofinator 4000 (which looks like a metallic top hat). He places it on the snowman's head, causing it to transform into Patrick, whose first words are "Birthday happy!"

At first, the kids have fun with Patrick, but they quickly grow tired of his antics (such as hogging Sheen's blanket, wearing Libby's clothes, and poking Carl with a stick repeatedly). But since spring is a long way off, the kids have to come up with a plan to get rid of him. Jimmy decides that they'll create a wormhole in the space-time continuum and send Patrick to the future. Cindy suggests they just melt him instead, but no one takes her advice.

The kids send Patrick 70 years into the future. 70 years later, at the Retroville Retirement Community home, Patrick shows up to annoy the now-elderly kids again, while Cindy chastises Jimmy for his idea. Nigel, now a skeleton, shows up to confirm that this is the end of the story; Patrick then pokes him with the stick, causing him to fall apart.

A shorter version of this spot, usually run during the end credits of the shows, ends with the kids being so spooked by Patrick coming alive that they immediately start chasing him down.

Plankton's Holiday Hits

A parody of Christmas album commercials, starring Plankton from SpongeBob SquarePants.

An announcer tells us about Plankton's past successful albums, Born to Chum and Krabby Road, and that he has now released a new album of him singing holiday songs. We are shown samples of Plankton's interpretations of "Come All Ye Faithful" ("O come all ye fearful / Cower as I crush you!"), "Joy to the World" ("I'll rule the world and everyone / You will bow down to me!"), "Deck the Halls" ("Deck them all with fists of fury! Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!"), and "The Nutcracker Suite" (he simply sings "Dig" repeatedly to the tune of the music). The announcer tells the viewers that, to order the advertised album, they must send the Krabby Patty secret formula to Plankton [Plankton at the Chumbucket, Bikini Bottom, USA].

The 12 Days of Nickmas

In this particular segment, an entire group of Nicktoon characters, all rendered in claymation ala Rankin/Bass style, sing to the tune of The Twelve Days of Christmas. The lyrics are as follows:
All: On the 12th Day of Nickmas, Nicktoons have on TV...

SpongeBob SquarePants: Twelve bubbles blowing! (blows some in Squidward's face)

Squidward Tentacles ["SpongeBob SquarePants"]: Feh!

James Isaac "Jimmy" Neutron: Eleven clones ATTACKING!! (is chased offscreen by Carl Wheezer and his clones)

Debbie Thornberry ["The Wild Thornberrys"]: Ten thousand places I'd rather be right now.

Carl Foutley and Hoodsey Bishop ["As Told by Ginger"]: Nine reindeer droppings! Hehehehehe!

Cosmo and Wanda ["The Fairly OddParents!"]: Eight oddball wishes! (grant said wishes, during which Vicky wanders too close to them)

Someone offscreen: Watch out, Vicky! (A portrait of Butch Hartman falls on Vicky)

Vicky ["The Fairly OddParents!"]: Seven thousand pounds, ugh... (Her feet curl up)

Squidward: Six jamming jellies! (The jellyfish circling his head sting him) Ow!!

Courtney Gripling ["As Told By Ginger"]: Five incredibly expensive golden rings!

Otto Rocket ["Rocket Power"]: Four dudes a-shreddin'!

Arnold, Gerald Johanssen, and Helga G. Pataki ["Hey Arnold!"]: Three cans of hairspray! (spray themselves with said hairspray and cough)

Cosmo: Two turtles' love...

Wanda: Oh, Cosmo!

All: And a starfish on a pine tree!

Patrick Star ["SpongeBob SquarePants"]: Hmmm... pointy.
Trivia

A Chuckie Finster Christmas, Channukah, Kwaanza, Winter Solstice

A post on Manny Galan's blog, detailing the production of the Nickmas shorts, reveals that, for "A Chuckie Finster Christmas", they'd originally intended to have the Rugrats characters drawn and dressed to resemble the Peanuts characters they represented in the skit.

Holiday Party

SpongeBob ripping his pants in one of the photos in is a direct reference to the SpongeBob SquarePants series episode "Ripped Pants".

This is the only skit that doesn't end with an orange snowflake falling down the screen and stopping right above the words, "Happy Holidays"

Patrick the Snowman

In a case of life imitating art ironically imitating life, Bill Faggerbakke, the voice of Patrick Star in "SpongeBob SquarePants", took on the role of Frosty himself in the 2004 direct-to-video film The Legend of Frosty the Snowman.

The 12 Days of Nickmas

Jimmy being chased by Carl's clones is a reference to the Jimmy Neutron interstitial short "Carl Squared".

Vicky's hair is colored brown, instead of red-orange as it is on the show.

In spite of certain things happening to the characters during their respective lines, (such as Jimmy being chased away by Carl and his clones, and Vicky collapsing under the portrait), they still appear in their original positions in later shots.

Besides Butch Hartman's portrait, the "eight oddball wishes" that Cosmo and Wanda produce include a toilet, an old-time bicycle, a donkey carrying a suitcase, a giant set of false teeth, a big toy submarine (which looks like the one Wanda transforms into during the song in "Christmas Every Day!"), a bowl of cereal, and a plastic whale (which resembles Big Ben).

The music that plays when Squidward sings the "six jamming jellies" line is a background music piece titled "Stadium Rave", originally used in the SpongeBob SquarePants episode "Jellyfish Jam".

Patrick on top of the pine tree at the end of the skit is a reference to Christmas Who? when Patrick jumps up on top of the coral tree during the song.

Pathdeform is fiddly!

We started to put snow on the objects but it became too busy so simpler elements of snowflake extrudes and falling snow was decided upon.
