Quiz: Which ’90s Nickelodeon Heroine Are You?

Nickelodeon in the ’90s: a veritable utopia of green slime and childhood icons! From Clarissa Darling to Shelby Woo, Nickelodeon’s scripted series showed us ways to be a kid, and ways to be a girl, that I hadn’t seen on TV before. These kids were brave, and smart, and knew what they wanted. They had loyal friends, exotic pets, amazing hats, and such freedom in their adventures! I wanted to be every single one of them.

  1. Shelby Woo! This entire quiz brought back such intense vibes of unpacking the twelve books I brought for the weeklong Girl Scout sleepaway camp and watching my cabin mates try to figure out My Deal

  2. Joining the ranks of the many Shelby Woos in this comment section lol! I never gave that show much of a chance when I was a kid because I wasn’t into mysteries but now I’m thinking I missed out.
    Also, this quiz brought back so many memories of 5th grade camp which was possibly the best week of my childhood. *wistful sigh*
