1. Legends of the Hidden Temple ('93-'95)

Ugh, who didn't want to sport a sick Red Jaguars, Blue Barracudas, Green Monkeys, Orange Iguanas, Purple Parrots, or Silver Snakes shirt while they received challenges from a talking rock named Olmec and were scared half to death by a hidden Temple Guard?

4. Figure It Out ('97-'99)

I was largely an un-gifted child, but that didn't stop me from wanting to be on the one show that made the infamous Nickelodeon green slime famous. Fun Fact: The three panelists who were in the most episodes are: Lori Beth Denberg (115 ep.), Danny Tamberelli (96 ep.) and Amanda Bynes (52 ep.)
