Slime Time Live is a television series that aired on Nickelodeon from 2000-2003, lasting 8 seasons. During its run it was hosted by Dave Aizer, Jonah Travick and Jessica Holmes and produced/directed by Jason Harper. The show was located outside (inside if either weather did not permit, or the outdoor area had become too messy from earlier in the day) of the former Nickelodeon Studios at Universal Studios Florida (the third-to-last show to do so). The series mainly aired as filler during regular commercial time.

The show holds two Guinness World Records – most people pied in three minutes (1000, in 2001), and most people slimed (762, on the finale). The sliming was done outdoors, in front of the studios.

Sliming

Slime Time Live was known to have to slimed their audience; when they did this they would pick someone, sit them in a chair, and ask them a question. If they answered correctly, they would get a big bucket of slime (eventually changed to two buckets, then three) poured atop of them.

Pieing

Slime Time Live was also known to have their audience members, contestants, hosts (notably Jessica), some celebrity guests, and staff caught on-camera pied in the face. When the show was cancelled, Nick's pieing trademark was forgotten. The trademark was later revived through the Nick-themed resort and cruise line.

Interactive games

During the show, viewers would phone in to play interactive games with players on the show. The most common game was to make a match of Nicktoons from off of a Tic-tac-toe grid. The board was scrambled before game play and if a match was made, the home player would win a prize and the contestant would be slimed and often pied as well. In-addition to Nicktoons, the game board included a pie tile (the contestant would shove the pie they are holding in their face), and a "cream blaster" tile (where the contestant would be blasted with whipped-cream by the two side-cannons).

More interactive games would be played as the run progressed, many celebrities from other Nick shows appeared often.

The Big Shaboozie

Formally known as "Super Sloppy Slime Off," The Big Shaboozie was the show's end game. Below are changes made, over the years, to the game while the show was on-air.

2000/01

In "Super Sloppy Slime Off," two out of three teams (each team had three contestants), Jessica led one team and Jonah led the other, would stand under a trough filled with slime. Dave would ask a Nick-related question, if one of the in-house player answered the question, one of the contestants from the home player's team would be pied by their team leader; if they answered wrong, a contestant from the opposing team would be pied by their team leader. The team to have all three of their members pied would be slimed and (along with the home player) receive a grand prize.

2002

Renamed "The Big Shaboozie," changes to the game included Dave asking Nick-related questions on the given topic (instead of random questions); all players would now wear goggles during the game -- whether it was getting pied, slimed, etc. -- in-addition to getting slimed (they often got slimed with other substances besides slime), the members of the winning team would be blasted (front and back) with whipped-cream.

Changes Un-related to the Game
  • The logo has been changed
  • An audience member would introduce the game

2003 (Big Changes)

This time, there only two players on each team. Each team takes turns each deciding which number to pick on a Tic-tac-Toe board; if one team finds "The Big Shaboozie" they will win the game, but if they find "The Whammy," the opposing team wins.

Changes un-related to the game

Final season

For the final season, Slime began recording prior to the days it was set to air, and aired in the morning hours. Nickelodeon had tried to gain young viewers in the morning hours through this, but ratings declined shortly thereafter. Slime would often "connect" (Florida to New York) with U-Pick Live, which would replace Slime later in the year.

On the grand finale, Slime broke the world record for most people slimed at one time.[3]

Friday Night Slimetime

A few years after Slime Time Live's cancellation, Friday Night Slimetime premiered on Nickelodeon, but unlike the original version, its segments were pre-recorded. It lasted for one season and was hosted by Lil' JJ. The most common prizes on these shows were either a bicycle or athletic balls.
