All That, NickelodeonBust out your orange soda and touch up your mermaid tattoo, children of the '90s: Nickelodeon has finally gotten hip to the fact that the nostalgia factor of its revered shows of the early-to-mid-'90s has reached critical mass.

In response, TeenNick has announced that it will start airing those beloved series from midnight to 2AM this fall in a new programing block called 'The '90s Are All That,' Entertainment Weekly reports. Hey, cool!

Among the high-quality shows included are 'Clarissa Explains It All,' 'The Adventures of Pete & Pete,' 'All That,' 'Kenan & Kel' and 'The Amanda Show.'

"At the time, we were completely devoted to that audience ages 9, 10 and 11," TeenNick general manager and senior vice president Keith Dawkins told Entertainment Weekly. "It was ground-breaking and for the young viewers, a powerful and pivotal time in their lives. Those kids who are now 22, 23 and 24 want to bring that back."

Dawkins told EW that the network began thinking about re-airing the shows when it realized their immense popularity on social networking sites.

Hum the 'Clarissa' theme (na na nanana) while you share your thoughts on this news below. Warning: You won't be able to get the tune out of your head for days.

Tell us: What other shows would you like to see? 'Hey Dude' and 'Salute Your Shorts,' anyone?
