  • Slime In Winners & Nick Bumpers?

    Hey,

    Whatever happened to posting video clips of the slime-in winners and the old nickelodeon bumpers?

    I remember a while back there was a search for all of them, and I think the plan was to put 'em on the website, but then it never ended up happening.

    I just found three of the slime-in winners on some old tapes back at the house I grew up at (pictures below of which ones), and I would love to see the others plus those old commercials.

    Let me know if there's a plan to post the others + the old bumpers, or if you guys need copies of these 3 - I'd gladly send 'em in.

    The first one is rather special in that is from the first slime-in back in 1984. I believe her name is Ashley Gentry.

          So wait, they've been doing slime-in's since '84? Sheesh, I wasn't even born then. I don't feel quite as old now.

            what is with so many girls winning the slime in contest? I would think girls would NOT want to be slimed.
            And I really wanna see that first one-what was with the dark link set? And the wine glass in the girls hand? Someone post that video please.

              Hey everyone, I'm new here, I've been a visitor for a long time to this website, and I felt it was time to join the forum and say hi.

              As a long time fan of YCDTOTV, I would definitely like to see these videos, the last one is already on Youtube, but the other two aren't on there at all.

                my guess is the girls just wanted to meet alasdair & co. and considered getting slimed as the price they had to pay..

                  The 1989 Slime-In winner video is up on YouTube.

                    If I remember correctly, winners were chosen through a random drawing, so it just happened to be that some the first winners were girls.

                      The dark link set was due to the fact that they treated announcing the winner like an awards show. Christine was in an evening gown and Ross was dressed in a tuxedo as they announced the first winner. I believe they announced the winner in either April or May as it was before June when the first batch of 1984 episodes began airing. The announcement aired a fair number of times on Nick during the regular run of YCDTOTV, which was still only airing 3 days during the week at the time.

                        The first batch of 1984 episodes aired in June?? Wow that summer, fall, and winter must be filled with new episodes all of a sudden. (I started watching in 1986)

                          I think there's some kind of conspiracy here. Every time someone crops up on this board claiming to have video from the slime in winners, that's the last we ever hear from them.

                          I doubt the video of these even exists... matter of fact, I'm beginning think they never even happened (apart from the 1989 one). Someone prove me wrong... video is the only proof I will accept.

                            Loved seeing Moose in that evening gown. Looks to me like the same off-the-shoulder gown Abby Hagyard used in the "Creme de Peanut" fake commercial in the '82 season (which episode was that?).

                            The second winner posted, IIRC, was the 1988 winner and her name was Jennifer something. I vaguely remember watching the video of her sliming on Nick back in the day - Les, as Ross, told her to read the cue card, and she said "I don't know" ("Yeah you do!" retorted Ross) and was slimed. I think she may even have gotten a second sliming if memory serves. Nickelodeon used clips from that sliming in promos for several years afterward, including one commercial for Nickelodeon Studios in Orlando - never mind that YCDTOTV was never made there.

                            Sorry John, that wasn't intended as "proof" and I wish I had video of this but I don't.

                              LOL. The guy posted screencaps earlier in the thread.

                              Unless someone else has the technology to give you visual proof, I guess you'll keep believing it never happened. I have the 1987, 1989, and 1990 winners on tape. I also have a commercial for the Nickelodeon network that includes a brief 2 second clip of the first slime in where Christine says, "and the grand prize winner IS!..."

                              I'd love to see the first one, and I haven't seen the full thing of this one since it was shown originally: http://i.imgur.com/5KgEO.png. That was 1988, right? Didn't they have a 1988 Slime In? I have a very blurry memory of seeing the whole thing. They used that slime clip for those Universal Studios commercials.
