Well, It’s Official…We’re All Growed Up

So that’s it.  The logo of our childhood is over.  Done with.  Caput.  Nickelodeon recently announced that they’re doing away with the Splat-like logo and going with a more rounded, streamlined one.  I mean, after 20+ years it’s time for change (this is the era of Obama afterall) but it’s just weird to realize that the two year old I babysit will never recognize the Splat logo.  He’ll probably see it in 15 years and put it on an ironic t-shirt like the kids my age do with the old Milwaukee Brewer’s logo, which, I guess wouldn’t be all that bad.  As long as it isn’t obnoxious.  So, moral of the story: I’m OK with this–just keep it classy.

There is no logo more bitchin' than this one.

UPDATE: From my friend Seth–keeping the original logo makes you the most recognizable brand in the world: http://blogs.tnr.com/tnr/blogs/the_plank/00000cokepepsi.jpg

Adventures in Great Theme Songs

Today’s Adventures in Great Theme Songs brought to you by everyone’s favorite redheaded, same name brothers, Big Pete and Little Pete — aka The Adventures of Pete and Pete.  I’ll admit, this show was weird, sometimes gross, and took me a really long time to like.  On the plus side, it had a really rockin’ theme song that still holds up as a legit song on its own today.
