In case a “massive live-action/animated” NickToons movie, and Good Burger 2, and a Hey Arnold! TV movie, and cast reunions of Salute Your Shorts and The Adventures of Pete and Pete, and the Splat! programming block isn’t enough Nickelodeon nostalgia, well, put on your Green Monkeys shirt**, because I have some good news for you. Variety is reporting that Legends of the Hidden Temple, everyone’s favorite game show starring a giant head voiced by Klaus from American Dad, will return as a TV movie later this year.
(**the Green Monkeys were the best; there is no debate)
In Hidden Temple, three siblings must conquer a series of obstacles to remain alive, mirroring the theme of the original game show. The TV movie, slated to appear in the fourth quarter of 2016, will nod to other elements from the original show, including Olmec, a talking head who knows the secrets behind the temple; The Steps of Knowledge, the entrance to the temple and launching pad for the mission; and cameos from a green monkey, red jaguar, and silver snakes, among others. Isabela Monae, known from her role on Nick’s 100 Things To Do Before High School, will star. (Via Variety)
Variety also says that the Hey Arnold! TV movie will air in two parts, sometime in 2017. I bet even that football head knows how to put together a damn monkey shrine. Legends of the Hidden Temple: It’s been making adults furious at children since 1993.
