Most of us have at some point in our lives tuned into Nickelodeon and watched one of their classic TV shows.

Elvis died only around 105 days, or three and a half months, before the birth of Nickelodeon. Apple (yes, the makers of the iPhone, apple) was incorporated in January of the year and the very first Apple II series computers went on sale the same year. If all of the previous examples do not draw upon you the longevity of Nickelodeon, the next one surely will. The very first Star Wars film was released in 1977. That’s right! Nickelodeon is as old as Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope.
