What was true in 1991 when the original show premiered is still true today: Kids are fascinated with the world of babies. We can’t wait for today’s kids to meet Tommy, Chuckie and pals.”
Nickelodeon and Viacom have recently released some other revivals recently that first came to popularity in the 1990’s. They have announced an animated show based on Daria called Daria and Jodie, as well as a live-action TV series based on the Liquid TV spinoff Aeon Flux.
