Which '90s Nickelodeon show is better: 'All That' or 'Kenan & Kel'? | The Tylt
You're not a true '90s kid unless you watched Nickelodeon classics "All That" and "Kenan & Kel." Because duh—Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell made the shows laugh-out-loud funny. Kenan just turned 39. This means '90s kids are old now, and we should all vote on which of his comedic pairings with Kel is more iconic. "All That" created popular sketch characters—Repair Man, Ed, Pierre Escargot and Superdude. But the "Kenan & Kel" spinoff had fun schemes and orange soda. Which show is more iconic? 📺
Which '90s Nickelodeon show is better: 'All That' or 'Kenan & Kel'?
Check out the synopsis of "All That," per IMDB:
A combination sketch comedy/musical performance show in the tradition of "Saturday Night Live," this program starred a teenage cast and was targeted at younger viewers. The show featured a number of repeating characters, including Baggin' Saggin' Barry, Super Dude, and the misfit fast food employees of Good Burger, which spawned a movie of the same name.
Even "All That" quotable catchphrases remain hilarious.
"I'm a dude he's a dude she's a dude we're all dude say."
"I'm Superdude, the teenage superhero with powers that make women sweat!"
While Kenan and Kel mainly carried "All That," alongside Amanda Bynes, let's not forget other popular skits like "Ask Ashley," "Vital Information' and "Loud Librarian." You couldn't help but laugh at the wackiness of the teen sketch comedy. And the jokes (and corniness) still holds up today.

Here's the synopsis of "Kenan & Kel," also per IMDB:
Kenan and Kel. Two best friends who live in Chicago are always dragged down by Kenan's get rich quick schemes while orange soda loving buddy Kel is dragged along but tends to mess things up.
Kel's adorable addiction to orange soda, and Kenan's scheming ways may top anything they have ever done on "All That." And that's saying a lot!
"Who loves orange soda?"
"K-K-Kel loves orange soda."
"Oh yes, oh, yes, oh, yes, it's true, oooh!"
"Is it true? Is it TRUUUUE?"
"MMMHHMMM! I do, I do, I do-oooh!"
Kenan and Kel made "All That" so great that they got their own spinoff sitcom in 1996. Although their characters from "All That" remained popular, carrying their own series meant only more iconic moments and more screen time with the duo. And '90s kids lived to hear the words "Aww, here it goes" at the beginning of each episode.
