Atomic Nick is a sister channel of Nickelodeon. It is the only Nick channel which uses the "Splat" logo. It launched on June 13, 2011. It is made to gear towards only popular live action shows and mostly cartoons. It also runs Cartoon Network and Disney shows, but is mostly Nickelodeon.
During an airing of Looney Tunes on Atomic Nick, Atomic Nick aired one of the Censored Eleven shorts, causing controversy with the government. However, shortly later, the government licensed 6 shorts to Viacom.
