One of my earlier memories of Nickelodeon is of this promo series featuring the Silver Ball. I like the imagery of the floating orb showing me what I can expect from this young channel, but in my young head the ball also confused me and muddied the brand. Since I had no idea was a nickelodeon was at the time, I started thinking it must be some sort of pinball machine. Which made me think of Nickelodeon as “that pinball channel”.
