The dream of the ‘90s is still very alive at Threadless. The t-shirt company has launched a competition with Nickelodeon’s “The ‘90s Are All That” block and is encouraging designers to come up with a shirt inspired by one of several classic Nickelodeon shows, including, but not limited to Aaahh!!! Real Monsters, Hey Arnold!, Rocko’s Modern Life, The Ren & Stimpy Show, and The Adventures Of Pete And Pete—though fans interested in creating something related to the latter are not permitted to use “any actor likeness,” making that “Don’t Give Up Hope” Artie shirt a little harder to achieve.
The contest runs through Feb. 27, and winning designers will pull in not only cash and Threadless gift certificates, but also “a chance to choose an episode to air on TeenNick’s Mixtape Monday,” and—and this is the big one—“A Nickelodeon prize pack including original animation cels and other swag.”
So far, there are about 115 designs up for voting on Threadless’ site. Images from some of our favorites are below, though the shirt we really want—an exact facsimile of Artie’s long john top from Pete And Pete—doesn’t seem to exist yet.
