Nickelodeon has been basking in nostalgia recently. After launching a programming block called The Splat to bring back a bunch of their popular shows from the 1990s, news surfaced of a NickToons movie as well as TV movies for Legends of the Hidden Temple and Hey Arnold!. Now one of the Nickelodeon’s biggest child stars from 20 years ago has expressed interest in reviving another popular show from the network.
Kenan Thompson currently has a comfortable career as one of the regular cast members on Saturday Night Live, and he occasionally pops up in movies such as They Came Together and Snakes on a Plane. More recently, he’s become the spokesperson for Fandango as a character named Miles Mouvay. But there might be a chance we’ll see Kenan Thompson reteam with his childhood friend and co-star Kel Mitchell for a Kenan & Kel reunion. Read More »
Nickelodeon has really been doubling down on their nostalgia for the ’90s lately. Last year they introduced the programming block called The Splat that brought favorite cartoons such as Rugrats and Hey Arnold! to TeenNick as well as live-action shows like Are You Afraid of the Dark? and Clarissa Explains It All. There’s a live-action/animated hybrid NickToons movie in the works at Paramount Pictures. And this year they announced a TV movie adaptation of their game show Legends of the Hidden Temple. Now a reunion of one of Nickelodeon’s favorite comedy series is in the works.
All That was the kid version of Saturday Night Live back in the ’90s, except it was recorded instead of done live. The series consisted of a batch of comedy sketches featuring the likes of future stars such as Kenan Thompson (who is currently on SNL), Amanda Bynes (who has sadly gone off the deep end a bit), Jamie Lynn Spears (younger sister of Britney Spears) and Nick Cannon. And now there will be an All That reunion special coming to The Splat. Read More »

There’s been talk of reviving some of the fan favorite Nicktoons in some capacity, a live-action/animated hybrid movie at Paramount and 90s programming block called The Splat coming in October. Yes, nostalgia for a decade that ended just 15 years ago is alive and well.
Now The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon wanted to get in on all the 90s fun by having a Good Burger reunion, featuring the return of Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell, who originated these exact same characters on the Nickelodeon sketch show All That, which was basically Saturday Night Live for kids.
