Nickelodeon Japan had two blocks, those were:

  • Nick Jr. (ニック・ジュニア) (Until 2005-ish, Nick Jr. was shown two times a day. They'd usually show one episode from the preschool shows on Nick Japan at the time. Around 2008, they'd start showing two episodes from these shows)
  • WOW! (This block aired various marathons of Nickelodeon shows, mainly Nicktoons, like Hey Arnold! and CatDog. The block had started around 2005 and ended in 2006)

Toys and Games

In Japan, the Nicktoons Unite! video game series were sold, but only Attack of the Toybots technically, which was available on Nintendo's Wii and DS systems. The first game, which title translates into "SpongeBob and Friends" was made exclusively for Japan. The game was nowhere near like the original, and borrowed elements from Battle for Volcano Island.

SpongeBob SquarePants: Creature from The Krusty Krab was also sold there for the Wii and PS2, as well as the Atlantis SquarePantis video game, released for DS.

Additionally, Nickelodeon's Gak and Floam products were sold in Japan as early as 1993.

In 2009, on the same day that Nickelodeon internationally changed it's logo, Nick Japan went off the air forever. It was because of a viewership decline. There's still footage and pictures of the Japanese version up on the Internet, however. The website is still up as well. A link for the website can be seen in the KaBlam! episode "KaFun!".
