4 Reasons Dan Schneider’s “Henry Danger” Deserves a Kids’ Choice Award!

Attention Nickelodeon lovers, Dan Schneider fans, and people of Swellview: “Henry Danger” has been nominated for a Kids’ Choice Award, and it’s up to you to help it bring home that sweet, sweet orange blimp!

On March 11, the 30th annual Kids’ Choice Awards will air on Nickelodeon. The 30th ever, the awards will be determined by YOUR votes, so don’t forget to weigh in on your favorite shows, characters, movies, musicians, #squads, and much more!

We know we’re not the only ones with a special place in our heart for “Henry Danger” and its lovable cast. So without further ado, here are just 4 of many reasons “Henry Danger” deserves to win this highest honor!

1. The coolest sidekick ever, DUH!

Our main man Henry from “Henry Danger” is our hero, yeah — but in the show, he’s the sidekick to Swellview’s indestructible (and super funny) superhero, Captain Man. Since it seems like there’s a new superhero movie in theaters every week, it’s rad to see a story from the point of view of the sidekick— who’s really just a regular kid! — at the center of the action.

Since “Henry Danger” is Henry’s story, not Captain Man’s, it really goes to show that it’s not just grown-up heroes that matter. Where would Batman be without Robin, or Doctor Who without any of his lovable companions? “Henry Danger” proves why “sidekick” may just be the best job there is. Too bad there aren’t more open positions in real life. We’re guessing there would be, like, a TON of applicants.

2. Powers, powers, and more powers!

Captain Man and Henry Danger have some really cool powers. Both can transform into their costumes by chewing gum, and Captain Man, after a childhood skateboarding accident, is indestructible. Even Henry gets powers of his own in season 3: super-speedy reflexes!

It’s fun to imagine what it would be like to have superpowers — it really makes you think about how we’d use them (or not use them) at school or at the park, and how to use them to help our friends and family. But superpowers aren’t the only type of powers that make “Henry Danger” so great. The best power on “Henry Danger ” is the power of friendship… corny, but true! We’ll admit it, though: the power of comedy is a close second!  

3. The amazing, fantastical Jace Norman

Jace Norman, the actor that pays Henry Hart, is a true Nickelodeon treasure: just ask his many, many, adoring fans! Jace may not be an actual superhero in real life, but he’s as just as cool and even more popular than the character he plays. When it comes down to it, though, he’s also your average 16 year old.

Jace is also nominated for Favorite Male TV Star. Some more fun facts about Jace: He has a dog (named Henry, go figure) who is the subject of many of his Instagram photos. He participated in one of the coolest Mannequin Challenges ever on the set of “Henry Danger.” And, he’s been able to overcome some serious struggles brought on by dyslexia by memorizing his scripts like a pro.

4. Lair-ing is Caring!

Captain Man’s incredible Man Cave deserves a Kids’ Choice Award all on its own, but unfortunately there isn’t an award for best lair! With a secret entrance in the awesome store Junk N’ Stuff, the Man Cave is host to all sorts of cool stuff — even more than the store above it — including a supercomputer, a hidden weapons vault, and tons of neat gadgets and tools.

Oh, what we’d give to visit the Man Cave for a superhero meeting or even just a quick run around in manic circles (as seen above). It makes us aspire to fun antics in a lair of our own someday. Who knows? Maybe every home will come with a secret lair in the future!

We can dream, can’t we?

4 Reasons Dan Schneider’s “Game Shakers” Deserves A Kids’ Choice Award!

Hey there, “Game Shakers” fans! Dan Schneider’s hit Nickelodeon show, starring your favorite teen game developers, has been nominated as Favorite TV Show (Kids) at the 2017 Kids’ Choice Awards.

This award show is a big one — the 30th ever! — and premieres super-soon. Mark March 11th on your calendars, and don’t forget to cast your vote online for your favorite shows, characters, movies, musicians, #squads and more first!

So, why vote for “Game Shakers?” Here are just 4 reasons this show totally deserves a win. Take a look and let us know if you agree!

1. Girl power all day, every day!

Nickelodeon GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

One of the coolest thing about “Game Shakers” is the girls that run the show: Babe (played by Cree Cicchino) and Kenzie (played by Maddie Shipman). These two seventh graders start what turns into a multi-million dollar game company all on their own after creating a killer game called “Sky Whale.”

Babe and Kenzie are awesome role models for young girls, boys, and people of all ages, really. Their talent, business savvy, and hard work shows just how passionate these girls are, and their amazing ability to get the job done! We all have a lot to learn from their can-do attitudes! Girl power is fun for everyone, and “Game Shakers” proves it.

2. Two words: Kel Mitchell

Long-time Dan Schneider fans, and newer ones too, know that “Game Shakers” character Double G is more than just a superstar rapper and Game Shakers business partner. He’s Kel Mitchell, a beyond-brilliant Nickelodeon alum known for “All That”, “Kenan & Kel” and “Good Burger”  way back in the day!

Kel fans remember him for his orange soda addiction, but today’s viewers get to see a whole new side of this beloved actor and comedian. As Double G, Kel is an endless source of laughter with a penchant for getting set on fire. Did we mention Double G has tons of celebrity enemies, including Justin Bieber, Serena Williams, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and all the women on “The View?” Sorry, Beliebers… I think we’re on #TeamDoubleG!

3. AMAZING games, IRL!

One of the absolute best things about “Game Shakers” is the fact that their games aren’t just on TV… anyone can play them, anytime, anywhere! So when you see Kenzie, Babe, Hudson, and Trip testing out a rad new game, there’s a good chance you can go to your app store or GameShakers.com and play it yourself! Not many shows give kids this chance, so it’s kind of a big deal.

The first-ever game “Sky Whale” is obviously a fan favorite, but the rest of their games are just as good, if not better! In “Ballarina,” you can be a cute zebra rolling around in a bubble ball. In “Nasty Goats,” you go on a garbage-eating adventure that is bah-bah-brilliant. And on “Octopie,” you get to be a pizza-slinging octopus in charge of feeding bears, sumo wrestlers, and more. If you haven’t played these yet, you are totally missing out, my friends!

4. Coding = Cool

“Game Shakers” joins a roster of TV shows, including the Big Bang Theory, that are really succeeding in making science and technology cool for young people everywhere! Specifically, “Game Shakers” makes coding — a skill in high demand — fun and appealing. They even aired an hour-long special called “Revenge @ Tech Fest ” in partnership with Girls Who Code, Afterschool Alliance, Code.org and MIT Scratch. This proves Nick’s commitment to “building awareness around STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) education and coding concepts.”

As we’ve written about before, Game Shakers also teaches some valuable lessons about starting and running a business. For budding entrepreneurs, this is really inspiring, not to mention fun to watch!

3 Reasons Benji Flores Jr. Deserves a Kids’ Choice Award!

There’s a lot to love about Dan Schneider’s “Game Shakers,” a hit show on Nick about tech-savvy teens running a gaming company. That’s why “Game Shakers” has been nominated as Favorite TV Show (Kids) at the 2017 Kids Choice Awards. Even better, the show’s own Benjamin Flores Jr, AKA Benji, has been nominated as Favorite Male TV Star!

Benji brings so much joy and heart to “Game Shakers” and the entire network with his zany attitude and overflowing starpower. We’re beyond stoked to see him recognized for all his hard work!

Here are 3 reasons we think Benji would be an amazing choice for this award. Let us know what you think, and don’t forget to cast your vote before tuning in on March 11th!

1.Triple G has the life we all want

Nickelodeon GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

On “Game Shakers,” Benji plays Triple G, the son of superstar Double G and official game consultant for the Game Shakers. Triple G is living every kid’s dream — not only is he a celebrity’s son, but he gets to spend his time testing awesome new games. Try to name a kid (or adult) who wouldn’t be all about that life. We’ll wait.

Game testing isn’t all fun and games (okay, it is all games, but it’s not all fun). When things go wrong, it’s Trip that’s tripped up, and his clumsiness just adds to the madness. But for Trip, it’s worth it: working with the Game Shakers lets him spend time with kids his own age for once, instead of always jetsetting with his celebrity dad and his posse (the horror!).

2. Benji is awesome in real life, too

As the son of a fictional rapper, it makes sense that young Benji has a burgeoning rap career of his own. Better known as “Lil P-Nut,” the Memphis native raps, sings, and dances. He even voiced the rapping penguin Atticus in “Happy Feet Two.” He’s even been on “Ellen”! TWICE!

For a taste of Lil P-Nut’s work, make sure to listen to his song “You Might Be the One,” first created and performed when he was just seven years old!

3. Destined for greatness

We know that the future is bright for young Benji. For starters, as the TV son to Double G, played by the iconic Kel Mitchell, and you can spot the “like father like son” dynamic from a mile away. Kel is not a genetic relative, obviously, but it’s clear that Benji looks up to him — he grew up watching “Kenan & Kel” and “Good Burger” and, according to his close friend (and duh, fellow “Game Shaker”) Maddie, he knows everything about his idol Kel.

Already, Benji is shaping up to be Nickelodeon legend. He was even cast as Gerald in a live action TV movie based on the famous Nick cartoon, “Hey Arnold.” We can’t wait to see where his rollercoaster of a career takes him next!

Do you agree that Benji should win a Kids’ Choice Award? Let us know in the comments for tweet @DanWarp!
