Nickelodeon Robot Wars is a game show that aired on Nickelodeon from August 25, 2002 to October 6, 2002. Hosted by Dave Aizer, the show was Nickelodeon's take on Robot Wars, the popular and long-running robot-fighting game show. The show was canceled after one season, and subsequently aired on Nickelodeon GAS.
The series of six shows was filmed at Shepperton Studios in England in January 2002 at the same time as the second season of the Robot Wars Extreme Warriors series shown on 'The New TNN' American television network (now Spike TV). Both shows featured American teams and robots flown to England for the filming.
The show featured robot competitors familiar to fans of The American series of Robot Wars, such as 'Rosie The Riveter' and 'The Revolutionist,' but the robot operators were all kids associated with the teams.
To suit the younger audience, a few adjustments and changes were made to the arena and House Robots.
All flame hazards, including the flame pit, fire jets and Sgt Bash's flamethrower, were disabled.
Sir Killalot was renamed "Sir K," a name he was commonly referred to in the official UK Robot Wars Magazine.
The Pit Release Bumper was moved further down the arena wall, closer to the bottom-right CPZ.
The language used was changed, with rougher language being disallowed.
