Nickelodeon Brazil is a cable and satellite television channel, the Brazilian counterpart of the American network Nickelodeon.

History[edit]

Nickelodeon Brazil was launched on 24 December 1996 in Brazil as a children-oriented channel, being the main competitor of Cartoon Network, which was launched 3 years before.

In 1996, after its launch, Nickelodeon had entered into an agreement with Globosat to extend the availability of the popular channel. Thus, some of Nickelodeon's most popular shows started to air on Multishow, such as Clarissa Explains It All . Due to the premiere of the Nicktoons on Brazilian Nickelodeon, Multishow started to air some of the shows of the block, including Doug, Ren & Stimpy, and Rugrats. In early 1997, Multishow stopped airing Nickelodeon shows.
