What is your favorite memory as a part of the All That cast? First off that it’s in the 90s era. I think it’s funny how the 90s are a bit vintage now, but I am proud to say that I was apart of a show that made the 90s what it is. Everyone remembers All That like I remember Rugrats. Being on All That was a dream come true and sharing that with my mother Brenda who passed away a few years ago meant the world to me. My memories meant the world to me and I hoped everyone enjoyed the show just like I did. I met so many great people that are now successful and it was truly a blessing to do a show that was in a lot of people’s households and that made people smile and laugh is all I could ask for.
What character from the 1990s would you like to hang out with the most? Zack from Saved by the Bell because, hello — he was a cutie… and I loved Joey Lawrence. O-M-G, hotness.
What 90s series would people be surprised to find out that you watched? None, I watched them all… Maybe Frasier?
What is your proudest video game accomplishment? Beating Super Mario 3.
Who was your 90s celebrity crush? Joey Lawrence or Jordan from NKOTB Continue reading
First and foremost, I’d like to take a moment to remember how awesome the bright orange VHS tapes that Nickelodeon put their movies on were…. Ok, moment over. Based off of the hilarious All That sketches, this full length film version was so enjoyable to 90s kids around the world. Good Burger is the story of Dexter, a young man whose relaxing summer is ruined when he crashes his mother’s car and finds himself employed at Good Burger alongside Ed. Across the street from Good Burger, a new competitor called Mondo Burger is opening, offering F’N GIGANTIC burgers for low prices. Dexter, Ed and the folks at Good Burger suspect something fishy and hi jinks ensue. The reason this movie is almost strictly for 90s kids is because most older people wouldn’t enjoy a movie made for children, starring characters they aren’t familiar with, and the youngins born too late don’t appreciate Kenan & Kel or know much about classic 90s Nickelodeon. For those of us that grew up in the greatest decade ever, Kenan and Kel provided us with more laughs than just about anyone. We had seen a hefty amount of All That which made The Good Burger skits and the fantastic comedy duo that Kenan and Kel assembled, household names. This cult classic has funny lines, ridiculous moments and Carmen Elektra in her prime – what more could you ask for? Whether it was the stealing of the ice cream truck or the mental institution scene, this movie delivered 90s kids with fond memories and more importantly, 95 minutes of Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell in action.
What were some of your favorite moments, quotes or memories of Good Burger/Kenan & Kel on All That? Leave ‘em in the comment section.

*Things 90s Kids Realize on Twitter
Well, it was only a matter of time. 90s kids and their TV shows are like the ex that you simply can’t get over. You think about calling and texting quite often until eventually, you can no longer resist and you try to rekindle the old flames. That’s essentially what is happening in the fall when Teen Nick airs a 2 hour block from midnight to 2am titled “The 90s Are All That”. The shows included are Rugrats, Kenan & Kel, The Amanda Show, Pete & Pete, All That and Clarissa Explains It All. Many of us already stay up until 2 in the morning as it is but now we’ll be doing so for a purpose! We’ll be reminded of the glorious days of ginger brothers, dancing tattoos, adventurous babies, orange soda and so much more in these two hour blocks. The fact that this is being done proves that the new stuff just ain’t cutting it and the networks are relying on the greatness that we grew up on. Word on the street is that the Facebook pages dedicated to the 90s with an abundance of followers are what triggered this change in programming. That means the millions and millions of 90s kids around the world should pat themselves on the back for knocking some sense into Nickelodeon’s brain! Hell, if we have enough pull to get a two hour block, maybe we should see if we can get an entire 90s network, huh?
What other shows would you like to see make a return?
The first cast of All That was hilarious in every way. It allowed Kenan & Kel to showcase their versatility by playing a variety of characters, including Pierre Escargot and the Repair Man Man Man Man. In the process, it started the ”Good Burger” sketches that resulted in a classic full length movie. Then, Amanda Bynes’ (who joined in Season 2) portrayal of a ruthless, advice giving little girl in “Ask Ashley” sketches provided plenty of laughs. Throw in Lori Beth Denberg, Josh Server & company and you’ve got a magnificent cast of entertainers… Which is more than I can say for the past few years of Saturday Night Live which have been pretty brutal… Ironically enough, Kenan managed to find himself a gig on SNL and he is partly responsible for the shows lackluster performance.
