Just days after Disney+ launched on November 12, Netflix announced a collaboration with Nickelodeon to create original content based on the classic cartoons. 

Plus, beloved shows from the network will be coming to the streaming service, too. It's been revealed that a SpongeBob SquarePants spin-off based on Squidward Tentacles is coming to Netflix, as well as a series based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Any nostalgia lovers who opted out of Netflix for Disney+ just got their reason to stick around. Now every major family network is partnered with a streaming service: Disney Channel is on Disney+, Cartoon Network is on HBO Max, and now Nickelodeon is on Netflix. 

Nickelodeon shows like Hey Arnold, CatDog, Rocket Power, and others could be on the docket. 

Netflix vice president of original animation Melissa Cobb told Variety, "Nickelodeon has generated scores of characters that kids love, and we look forward to telling wholly original stories that reimagine and expand on the worlds they inhabit." So that means new shows based on the iconic cartoons that kids grew up loving are on the way. One of those stories is a SpongeBob spin-off based on Squidward and his musical abilities, according to The New York Times

Netflix's news account tweeted about the partnership as well. 

Two more specials in the works are based on Loud House and Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Variety also reports that two original specials are already in production for Netflix. President of Nickelodeon Brian Robbins told the magazine, "The ideas and work at our Studio are flowing, and we can’t wait to work with Melissa and the Netflix team on a premium slate of original animated content for kids and families around the world." 

The two companies are creative powerhouses, so great new content is to be expected.

The network also announced the collaboration on its Twitter.

Nickelodeon was one of the first networks to remove content from the streaming service, but it seems it has changed its mind. Changing times and streaming wars in full battle and drastic measures needed to be taken. 

Another project in the works announced by The Hollywood Reporter is a live-action Avatar the Last Airbender. 

There's multiple places we can watch the shows of our childhood.

One person on Twitter pointed out that every major family network now has a home with a streaming service. While it makes choosing one service difficult, it is nice that anyone can pick up and watch their favorite childhood show at any moment. 

We're not going anywhere, Netflix.

Anyone with kids, or just kids at heart, may have thought about canceling their Netflix subscription with the launch of Disney+, but now we're not going anywhere.
