The Good Burger sketch from 'All That' was revived for a one-off sketch on 'The Tonight Show'
Children of the ‘90s, pay attention! Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell were temporarily reunited in a Jimmy Fallon sketch on ‘The Tonight Show’, almost 20 years since their Nickelodeon TV show first aired.
37 year old Mitchell, who was a guest on Fallon’s sofa on Wednesday night (September 23rd) and currently stars in Nick’s ‘Game Shakers’, reprised his classic role of Ed the cashier (now promoted to supervisor all these years later) from the Good Burger sketch from ‘All That’, while Thompson played another character, construction Lester Oakes, not his old character of Dexter Reed.
The late night host’s memories of being a Good Burger employee helped launch the sketch, which you can see below. He donned a large blonde wig and the Good Burger uniform for the bit, and stood beside Mitchell behind the counter.
After an opening gambit of taking everything a customer says literally, plus dousing him in mustard – standard Good Burger protocol! – Thompson made his appearance. When he walked into the joint to order a shake, Mitchell jumps over the counter to grab Thompson by the shoulders and shake him.
For his part, Thompson (also 37) is returning to the cast of ‘Saturday Night Live’ for its 41st season, having served on the show since 2003. Both he and Mitchell were auditioned for parts on 'SNL' way back then, but only Thompson was hired.
This surprise sketch arrives amid rumours that Nickelodeon is considering re-vamping some of its classic TV shows from years gone by. 65 episodes of ‘Kenan & Kel’, plus a made-for-TV movie ‘Good Burger’, were produced over four seasons spanning from 1996 to 2001. It was originally a spin-off from fellow Nick show ‘All That’.
