Nick in the Afternoon during the summertime was something that kids went
curr-razy for. To the untrained eye Stick Stickly might not seem like something to get amped up about; you have a Popsicle stick host with a somewhat obnoxious voice and he plays reruns of Nicktoons and TV shows – but that wasn’t the case for us. This WAS NOT your average Popsicle stick. Mr. Stickly was willing to participate in shenanigans for the sake of our being entertained. For example, in the “U-Dip” segment, Stick Stickly allowed the viewers, to vote for which substance he would be hilariously dipped into. Then when he was done entertaining the hell out of us, he’d show an episode of a show that WE voted for. So it wasn’t just any old rerun, it was a rerun that would keep our short attention spans occupied. I felt like Stick really cared about us, he even gave us his address constantly reciting the rhyme: “Write to me, Stick Stickly, PO Box 963, New York City, New York State, 10108.” In my opinion Stick Stickly is the Michael Jackson of non-human hosts… The King of POP-cicle sticks.
