Nickelodeon (or Nick) is a popular cable network aimed at children. In the early to mid 90s, they aired reruns of The Muppet Show (from 1994 to 1996), Muppet Babies (from 1992 to 1998) and various specials. The Muppet Show and Muppet Babies were shown during Nickelodeon's regular hours as well as during Nick Jr, Nickelodeon's preschool programming block, at one point as part of an hour-long block called Jim Henson's Muppet Hour. Nick Jr also aired the Muppet Time segments.
This channel had a few different titles for various showings of Henson specials. From November to December 1992, Muppet specials were shown on Sunday nights, as part of "Nickelodeon's Sunday Night Muppets". A year later, Nickelodeon showed specials on Friday nights, and called it "Nickelodeon's Friday Night Muppets". A few Muppet specials were occasionally shown on Nickelodeon's Special Delivery series. On Memorial Day, 1993, Nickelodeon broadcast an eight-hour-long Muppet Marathon, featuring both specials and episodes of Muppet Babies.
From Summer 1993 to 1995, Nickelodeon broadcast Muppet Matinee, a Saturday showing of Muppet specials.
The company ran Noggin, a station for young children. On September 28, 2009, this network was rebranded as Nick Jr., but otherwise continued to air the same lineup of programming it had aired before the name change.
