    When I was 8 I attended the filming of the Nickelodeon TV show, “Total Panic” with hosts, Greg Lee (”Where In the World is Carmen Sandiego”) and Molly Scott. This particular video segment I uploaded above was a video game preview/review of some of the hottest “Next Gen” consoles of the day, a must see video!

    We went to some park (Paramount Parks maybe) that had a Nickelodeon section in it and they were starting a Nick game where they picked adults from the audience to dress up as Reptar and they picked kids to through sponges into Reptar's pouch. My dad got picked to be one of the Reptars. Too bad we didn't have a camera with us though. [​IMG] Afterwards they picked kids from the audience to come up and form 2 teams and answer Nick trivia questions and afterwards the winning team got a surprise gift of being slimed.

    EDIT: I miss the old Nickelodeon. Double Dare, Clarrisa Explains It All, Stick Stickly.

    It was SO fun. I'm so glad I found the VHS tape, such good memories.
