One of the most awesome parts of Nickelodeon’s Schneiderverse? The easter eggs hidden throughout its many series and episodes! Showrunner/producer Dan Schneider is known for his clever references to former Nick shows, characters, and behind-the-scene tidbits. Super-fans pick up on them from time to time, but there always a few that slide totally under the radar!
Well, one of his more recent references is a pretty cool one. In the “Henry Danger” two-part episode “Hour of Power” (the amazing episode where Henry first gets his super-speed powers), one of the sets is a bakery called “Schneider’s Bakery.” If you’re thinking, duh, Schneider is Dan’s last name, hold onto your horses, because this egg has layers of meaning!
Schneider’s Bakery is the name of Dan Schneider’s production company, but not everyone realizes the name’s history and how meaningful it is to Dan. Before it was a production company, Schneider’s Bakery was a real, bonafide bakery, founded by Dan’s grandfather!
So when Henry and Drex fought among the pastries in “Hour of Power,” it wasn’t just a reference to Dan or his production company — it was a tribute to Dan’s grandpa and his historic bake shop. Pretty cool, right?
Dan is extremely proud of Schneider’s Bakery’s history, and the replica set is one great example of the esteem he (still!) holds his grandfather’s shop in. Dan also has a cake from the original bakery frozen and stashed away for good luck! Whether it’s still edible is anyone’s guess.
This amazing two-parter is definitely worth a rewatch, if not for the easter egg, for the drama, the fight sequences, the laughter, and the intrigue! All in a day’s work on the set of “Henry Danger,” but much like young Henry’s abilities, “Hour of Power” does not disappoint.
