You may not know the name "Dan Schneider", but if you grew up any time in the last 30 years, you know his work. He's the man behind all our favorite Nickelodeon shows - Drake & Josh, Zoey 101, iCarly, Victorious, The Amanda Show, Kenan & Kel, Sam & Cat, and basically every single thing that's ever been on Nickelodeon.
Well..turns out he's no longer with the company.
👀😶 Do you think this was a deliberate move by Nickelodeon, considering the rumours? • • Welcome to @didyouknow.tv !

In a joint statement made by Nickelodeon and Dan Schneider, they stated
Following many conversations together about next directions and future opportunities, Nickelodeon and our long time creative partner Dan Schneider/Schneider's Bakery have agreed not to extend the current deal.
Full statement can be found here.
Now here's where things start to get weird...have you ever gone back and watched an old episode of one of his shows? There's a common (and super creepy) theme...kid's feet! I probably noticed it back then but definitely didn't realize just how weird it was until now. If he wants to have a foot fetish on his own time, fine, whatever...but these are KIDS and its just weird. Like...why you gotta focus so much on their toes??
Not sure what I'm talking about? Let's just take a look.
THIS WAS NOT EVEN AN EPISODE. for the extra slap videos he made them do shit like this. i hope they were at least payed extra for this pic.twitter.com/bZCtiqOOvb— ً (@deludedkiss) September 17, 2017
LIKE LOOK THIS ISNT EVEN A QUARTER OF ALL THE FOOT SCENES IN EPISODES, HOW DO MORE PEOPLE NOT NOTICE HOW MUCH HE SEXUALIZES MINORS' FEET pic.twitter.com/24nri5ReUq— ً (@deludedkiss) September 17, 2017
There's plenty more episodes of his shows featuring weird foot stuff, BUT IT GETS WEIRDER!!!! In a tweet from the account of one of his more recent shows, Sam and Cat, they literally ask people to send pictures OF THEIR FEET. AND PEOPLE REPLIED!!!!!
SAM & CAT TOMORROW! Write on the bottom of ur foot, take a pic and use #SAMandCATSaturday we'll RT and follow until our fingers get sore!— Sam and Cat (@SamAndCat) September 13, 2013
BUT THEN IT GETS EVEN WEIRDER!!! An online post from a user claiming to have been an extra on the Amanda Show claims that Schneider paid her $100....to tickle her feet!

So this is all creepy AF to begin with, but when you go back and watch the shows, you'll catch a TON of weird sexual innuendos involving KIDS and its just so damn gross.
i would've saved one of the first two videos like this but they were both removed for violating youtubes guidelines so here's this: pic.twitter.com/CHRQNibtxX— ً (@deludedkiss) September 17, 2017
like what is this, they're literally 17 here, stop sexualizing your NICK STARS, especially if there underage. or at all if that'll work?? pic.twitter.com/SPcHTxZ1Tw— ً (@deludedkiss) September 16, 2017
