Dan Schneider Presents: 6 Highlights From Kel Mitchell’s Epic Career

Who loves orange soda? Kel loves orange soda. And who loves Kel Mitchell? Well, that’s an easy one: just about everyone who has seen him perform! This includes, at the very least, viewers of “All That” and “Kenan & Kel,” plus fans of Dan Schneider’s current hit, “Game Shakers.”

Kel’s 23-year career has been chock-full of comedic triumphs and goofy, memorable characters. Here are a few career highlights to refresh your memory, and catch you up with his impressive body of work!

All That

At 16, Kel kicked off his career with one of his best-known shows, Nickelodeon’s all-kid sketch comedy “All That.” Among other iconic characters, Kel played the zany substitute Coach Kreeton, the ineffective superhero “Repair-man-man-man,” the foolish Good Burger employee Ed, Okrah ( an Oprah parody), elderly gentleman Clavis, and Earboy’s sensitive pal Pizzaface.

Kel rocked the “All That” stage for five delightful seasons, and while we were sad to see him move on, all was not lost. Because that brings us to our next career highlight…

Kenan & Kel

If there’s one catch phrase Kel is most known for, it’s “Who loves orange soda? Kel loves orange soda” followed by “I do I do I do, oooo-oooo.” These lines are straight from “Kenan & Kel”, where Kel Mitchell played Kel Kimble, a fizzy drink enthusiast and occasionally-clumsy partner in crime to his best friend, Kenan.

The critically acclaimed TV show was known for breaking the fourth wall by having Kenan and Kel come out on stage and address the audience at the beginning and end. Inevitably, Kenan would suggest some form of hijynx that Kel knew nothing about, then dart offstage, prompting Kel’s second catchphrase, “Awwww here it goes.”

Kel’s movie debut, produced and directed by Dan Schneider, was “Good Burger,” a spin off the famous “All That” sketch. Kel reprised his role as Ed, while Kenan played a student named Dexter who, after taking a summer job at Good Burger to pay a fine, decides to make money off a special sauce invented by Ed. Chaotic antics, as always, ensue.

Two years later in 1999, Kel would land a starring role alongside Ben Stiller and Greg Kinnear in “Mystery Men,” a gut-busting comedy about a group of superheroes with unimpressive powers (Kel played Invisible Boy).

After “Kenan & Kel” ended in 2000, Kel took a hiatus from Nickelodeon and dabbled in other film, TV, stage productions, and even music video roles (he appeared in the Kanye West video for “All Falls Down.”)
Production debuts being a defining moment for most actors, Kel was able to autonomously exercise his creative comedy style in “Dance Fu, a comedy he co-wrote, produced, and starred in. The straight-to-DVD movie is an underrated gem, and Kel fans will certainly appreciate how Kel plays both the protagonist (a dancer named Chicago Pulaski Jones) and the antagonist (a villain named Pretty-Eyed Willy.)

Return to Nickelodeon

In 2013, Kel made a triumphant return to Nickelodeon with a guest appearance on Dan Schneider’s “Sam & Cat.” In the episode, he played a character called “Peezy B,” a rapper who, impressed by Sam’s style, hired her to be his personal assistant.
Following the episode, #PeezyB trended on Twitter as fans reacted to Kel’s appearance, sending new ripples of excitement into the Schneiderverse. And as many of you know, Peezy B set the stage for Kel to expand upon his rapper persona when he made an even bigger return to Nickelodeon as a lead character on Dan Schneider’s “Game Shakers.”

Since 2015, Kel Mitchell has starred as superstar rapper Double G on Nickelodeon’s “Game Shakers,” a show about a close-knit group of teens running a gaming startup. Double G is the company’s chief investor, and father of Triple G, the company’s official game consultant.

According to creator Dan Schneider, as reported by Variety, “When Kel is doing scenes on our new show, ‘Game Shakers,’ we all laugh so hard on set, just like we did 20 years ago…. It feels new, but also very familiar. Sometimes I have to think to myself, ‘Wait, is this 1995 or 2015?’”

It’s clear that in 2017, Kel’s comedic genius is as sharp as ever, making kids today love him just as much as he loved orange soda way back when. Long may he reign and entertain!

Dan Schneider is an American actor, TV and film actor, and producer. Dan Schneider has devoted his life to behind-the-scenes production of hit shows on Nickelodeon including “All That,” “The Amanda Show,” “Kenan & Kel,” “Drake & Josh,” “Zoey 101,” “iCarly,” “Victorious,” “Sam & Cat,” “Henry Danger,” and “Game Shakers.”

6 Amazing “After Party” Games You May Have Missed

What’s the best part of Nickelodeon’s “The After Party?” Now, that’s a loaded question. Could it be getting the inside scoop from our favorite actors on “Game Shakers” and “Henry Danger”? Or the fact that the segment recently aired on TV? Or maybe it’s the amazing games that the show’s host Karen (AKA Karen… just Karen) plays with the actors?

Maybe, just maybe, it’s all of this and more. Still, we have to admit that games are pretty high on the list! It’s so much fun to watch Nickelodeon actors get pelted with dodgeballs, answering fan questions, desperately trying to pop balloons, eating corn with their hands tied behind their backs, and generally acting like lunatics behind the scenes. Even better, these games are easily replicable so you can play them at home — all it takes is a little imagination and equipment of your own.

Here are 6 super-cool “After Party” games you don’t want to miss!

1. The Anti-Gravity Contest

Who is the most convincing anti-gravity floater? The cast of “Henry Danger” competes for a healthy portion of “astronaut meat.” The contest’s judge, Cooper Barnes (“Henry Danger”’s Ray/Captain Man), wastes no time picking himself and Ella Anderson as the winners. Impressive since Cooper didn’t actually compete in the competition!

2. Draw Your Castmates

The cast of “Game Shakers” put their drawing skills to the test in this SUPER fun challenge! Ummm, can we get Kel’s “Lil P-Nut” masterpiece printed and framed, please? Bravo!

3. Paparazzi Playtime

For this game, Karen gave the “Game Shakers” cast members disposable cameras a few days in advance and instructed them to sneak up on one another to capture unexpected moments on set. The results, let’s just say, range from flabbergasting to fabulous!

4. Tooth or Dare


Karen invites her dentist on the show to play “Tooth or Dare” with the “Henry Danger” cast. After flipping a coin, those that land on “tooth” get a dental fact, and those who get dare have to, for example, unpeel their least favorite fruit with their feet. We’ll never look at a banana the same way.

5. The No-Handed Balloon Pop

Ever tried to pop a balloon without your hands or feet? The “Game Shakers” cast was given a reason to (*cough* PRIZES) during this zany “After Party” segment. Maddie Shipman wins, while Shel Bailey (who plays Ruthless) clearly skipped leg day.

6. Dodging Questions

In this game, the cast of “Henry Danger” gets to answers fan questions once they catch styrofoam balls zooming their way. Watch the video to find out if Henry will get a girlfriend this season, and whether or not Ella will be taking a trip to Kazakhstan this summer!

“Henry Danger” Cast and Crew Win Big at the Kids’ Choice Awards!

Every year, Nickelodeon’s “Kids’ Choice Awards” reward the best of the best in entertainment based on your votes. This year, fans’ favorite actors, singers, movies and shows were up for a ton of awards in different categories. Among others, the cast and crew of Dan Schneider’s “Henry Danger” were in for a big treat — well, two big treats, actually! And we don’t mean candy (though that would be great too).

To fans’ delight, “Henry Danger” took home that, big beautiful orange blimp for “Favorite Kids’ Show.” There are so many reasons this amazing show deserved this award, several of which we wrote about on a previous blog post. Literally nothing compares with the awesome antics that Captain Man and Kid Danger get up to on the reg’. What could be better than a show full of superpowers? Oh yeah! A show starring Jace Norman.

This brings us to the second big win of the night: Jace Norman for “Favorite Male Actor”! Jace has a huuuge fan base, and it looks like they really came through for our man at the awards. There is a lot to love about Jace (his great smile and hysterical sense of humor being two factors). Both as an actor and as a person, Jace is a seriously great guy with a lot to offer. We can’t wait to see where his career takes him! For a kid who landed his first gig on his first ever acting audition at age 12, this is definitely a promising start.

If you watched the awards, you might have noticed a great stunt the whole cast pulled to parody this year’s legendy Oscars snafu. After accepting the blimp, Jace Norman looks down and says “You guys this must be a mistake — this says “Favorite Kids’ Show: Moonlight.” I didn’t even know they were nominated!”

“Moonlight,” of course, is the film that actually won Best Picture after “La La Land” was mistakenly announced at the Oscars. Their slip-up makes us super glad that the “Kids Choice Awards” had all their cards in order! Phew!

So many other great actors, shows, movies, and musicians took home awards at the 2017 Kids’ Choice Awards, including “Ghostbusters” for Favorite Movie, “Finding Dory” for favorite animated movie, and “Fifth Harmony” for Favorite Music Group.

Congrats again to “Moonlight” — er, we mean “Henry Danger” — on the epic wins this year! It’s been a crazy ride.
