UPDATE: This event was canceled, and Danny & Mike will now tape their podcast at The Bell House the same night (10/9) with Polaris performing. Tickets ($10) are on sale.

As mentioned, Super Week happens right before NY Comic Con with all sorts of cool special events. One of them is SLIMED: A Night of Nickelodeon Nostalgic Nonsense which happens at Hammerstein Ballroom on October 9. The evening will feature a panel discussion, a live taping of Pete & Pete stars Danny Tamberelli and Michael Maronna's podcast, a segment on the music of Doug (a live performance by show creators Fred Newman & Dan Sawyer), and... a live performance by Polaris (Mark Mulcahy's band that did the Pete & Pete theme song, "Hey Sandy"). This will be Polaris' first-ever NYC show. Maybe DFA co-founder Jonathan Galkin will be there -- he was a castmember of Hey Dude. Tickets are on Super Week presale now (password is NYSW) with the general on-sale starting July 24 at noon.

Slimed is also the title of Mathew Klickstein's book on Nickelodeon which was released last year and is presenting this event. Video of Pete & Pete's opening credits below...

Would only go if there was a reunion of Are You Afraid of the Dark.

Where have you gone, Gary? Where have you gone, man. The world needs you.

Thanks to "Clarissa Explains It All", I still get all weak-kneed when I see a chick in Doc Martens.

Tickets are $35 not $80. Wish it was just Polaris.

Dan Sawyer and Fred Newman did not create Doug. They created the music for Doug including, yes, the music of The Beets. So, indeed, you'll be hearing The Beets LIVE!

Also, to be clear, tix are $28, which become $35 with Ticketmaster service charge and $68 for VIP tix, which includes a pre-party involving open bar/catering, meet n greet with other fans and some of the celebs and prime seats for the event proper.

I hear there will be some killer tofu at the pre-party!
