Nickelodeon is an American television channel, owned by ViacomCBS.
Originally launched on December 1, 1977 as Pinwheel (named after a children's show of the same name), the channel was rebranded as Nickelodeon on April 1, 1979.
One of the main continuity announcers for Nickelodeon has been Chris Phillips, who also voiced the mascot Face for the Nick Jr. block.
On August 6, 2019, parent company ViacomCBS (then Viacom) bought Paws Incorporated, giving Viacom the rights to Garfield. A new Garfield series was announced shortly after. Later that year, Viacom re-merged with CBS to form ViacomCBS.
