The time capsule buried by Nickelodeon in 1992 in front of Soundstage 18 (At Universal Studios Orlando) was removed in August 2006 and was . It was relocated outside the entrance of Nickelodeon Suites Resort, also in Orlando. The capsule contained items deemed important to the children of 1992 as voted upon by Nickelodeon viewers, including bubble gum, a skateboard, a history book, a comic book, a phone book, a world atlas, news reports from Desert Storm, news reports from the AIDS Crisis, news reports from the end of the Soviet Union, a Home Alone VHS, a Back to the Future VHS, assorted photographs of bicycles, trains, cars, politicians, and celebrities, a piece of the Berlin Wall, lead pencils, the Orlando, Florida TV Guide from the week of April 30, 1992, a baseball, a Barbie Doll, a Nintendo Gameboy, a Nicktoons t-shirt, Michael Jackson CDs, MC Hammer CDs, Twinkies, an issue of Nickelodeon Magazine, Rollerblades, a can of Nickelodeon Gak, Reebok Pump sneakers, and a copy of the Book of Endangered Species.

And It was scheduled to be opened on April 30, 2042, 50 years after its burial. It was reburied at the Nickelodeon Suites Resort in Orlando. However now that the hotel is rebranding and no longer going to be “Nickelodeon” what is the fate of the capsule that was part of my childhood?

Melissa Fass (Disney Bellas) and I started doing some research and had the chance to speak with David Bittler from Nickelodeon Studios.

David is also very passionate and saids that  Nickelodeon is committed to keeping the capsule sealed it will be moved to Nickelodeon studios in California very soon at this time  he is unsure if it will be on public display or not.  Nick  doesn’t have a public tour. So we will have to wait till April 20 2042.  If you want to  have look inside-the-studio  that took me back to the Orlando sound stage days.
