A little while back, we heard that a revival of the Nickelodeon sketch comedy show All That would be coming later this year, executive produced by veteran cast member and current Saturday Night Live star Kenan Thompson. Well, the All That revival finally debuts on Nickelodeon on June 15 at 8:30pm ET, and a couple sketches from the show’s return have arrived online.
Fresh out the box, All That reaches back into the past for a bit of nostalgia by bringing back Kel Mitchell as dimwitted Good Burger employee Ed. He’s joined by special guests The Jonas Brothers, and of course their order doesn’t go as smoothly as they’d like. But Good Burger isn’t the only returning sketch from the 1990s. Lori Beth Denberg returns as the loud librarian who wants everyone to keep quiet but is always the loudest one in the room. Watch the new All That sketches below. 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 »
