All That Revival

Fresh out the box. Stop. Look and watch. Ready yet? Get set. It’s Allllll That!

Any child of the ’90s who was fortunate enough to have cable will tell you about their love for the sketch comedy show All That. The show was basically Saturday Night Live for kids, featuring a series of young comedians mostly in their teens (some in their early 20s) putting on a variety of sketches. Now an All That revival is in the works at Nickelodeon, and it’s being executive produced by All That veteran and current Saturday Night Live cast member Kenan Thompson. Read More »

Mighty Ducks Cast Reunion

During the 90s, there was an abundance of family friendly sports movies that came from Disney. Sadly, the House of Mouse doesn’t really make movies like that anymore, so today’s generations are still enjoying the likes of movies such as The Mighty Ducks, Angels in the Outfield, Cool Runnings, The Big Green and more. This is all thanks to children of the 90s having kids of their own, and they were likely pretty excited when one of these beloved teams showed up at a real sporting event.

During a recent Anaheim Ducks game, there was a mini Mighty Ducks cast reunion from both the original Mighty Ducks and D2: The Mighty Ducks, and they all even wore jerseys featuring the name of their peewee hockey characters from the Disney sports franchise. Find out who showed up for the Mighty Ducks cast reunion below. Read More »

Nickelodeon has been basking in nostalgia recently.

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.

Everyone Poops Movie Trailer

With all the intellectual property being turned into movies nowadays simply for the benefit of brand recognition, it’s amazing that the well-known children’s educational book Everyone Poops hasn’t been turned into some kind of family comedy. Instead, a new sketch from the NBC variety show Maya & Marty (hosted by Maya Rudolph and Martin Short) imagines Everyone Poops as a whistleblower thriller where the American government and most of the citizens of the United States don’t want to believe the truth.

All That Reunion

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 »
