THE ORANGE YEARS
Scott Barber, Adam Sweeney
DOC NYC 2018
On the early years of the influential kids-focused TV network.
The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
YOU CAN’T DO THAT ON TELEVISION, CLARISSA EXPLAINS IT ALL, DOUBLE DARE, THE ADVENTURES OF PETE & PETE, DOUG, RUGRATS… If you recognize any of these titles, you probably grew up watching Nickelodeon, the cable-television network devoted to kids that launched almost 40 years ago. Beginning as a small local channel, visionary leadership led to its rapid growth into a global phenomenon. Scott Barber and Adam Sweeney’s film is a nostalgic and entertaining look back at the early years of the youth-oriented network that broke all the rules to let kids enjoy being kids.
