Default Why Was It Cancelled

Why was this show cancelled?... It was a great show.. and it only ran for 26 episodes... on a big network liek NBC, it would be like 1 season...

Nickelodean had issues. (Well, they still do but in a totally different way than back then.) They used to continually can awesome shows after only producing a small collection of episodes. WHY OH WHY? I'm sure it had fine ratings by Nickelodean standards. Me and all the kids I knew at the time watched it. Remember that show "Fifteen?" That was on during the time "Salute Your Shorts" and then some. That show ran on and on for 4 seasons. I highly doubt that had more ratings than "Salute Your Shorts."

Fifteen was a show that began on Nick the same time Welcome Freshman appeared. They both started in 91, and Fifteen lasted 4 seasons. It was suppose to be like a soap opera for the junior high and high school kids. I watched it a little, but I could not believe that it could have more seasons than Salute Your Shorts. See, even you didn't know what Fifteen was!! It stunk by comparison to other Nick shows.

I think they canceled it because politicians spoke out against Budnkick and Donkey Lips because they thought they're names promoted un-ethical messages and demoralized the overall population of America

i know im answering my own question from 2 years ago, but oh well.

i read on some online site that the reason "salute your shorts" was cancelled was that around 1991-1992, nickelodeon opened its new location in orlando, and it was cheaper there. "salute your shorts" and "hey dude" were NOT in-studio shows, therefore, it ended up being more expensive to produce, since SYS was shot in Arizona. "fifteen", which probably obviously didn't get better ratings than SYS, was probably renewed and renewed because it was cheaper to produce, as was all Nick's game shows.

You're right, I remember that Fifteen was taped at Nick Studios. When my family and I went on the Nickeloden Studios tour, we passed by some big windows that looked down onto the set of Fifteen.

Ah, thanks for the clear answer, David. Even though it lasted a short run with only two seasons I still think Salute Your Shorts is one of the fondest remembered nick shows. The extra money and effort would have been worth it to continue the show.

I've always wondered why it ended and now I know. Strange because I never remember the show fifteen although Welcome Freshman is vaguely familiar.
