Kenan And Kel Reunited And We Love It More Than Orange Soda

- Page 1

Kenan and Kel were the best comedy duo of the 90s, and it's not even close. Their show ran for a whopping 65 episodes, which for a show in the 90s is a decent stint. The friends shot to fame with the movie Good Burger, which is still quoted today.

When Kenan & Kel first aired, it made history by becoming the first Nickelodeon primetime sitcom to star two African-American leads. The two seemed inseparable on and off the screen, and they lived together with their moms. They would all hang out together and the boys would pull pranks on their moms. Kel recalls a time when they replaced the dishwasher soap with laundry detergent.

“It was bubbles everywhere. The whole apartment was just with bubbles,” Mitchell said in an interview with ABC News. “It was like an episode of Kenan & Kel but real life. It was pretty funny.”

The friends grew up, however, and it was time to move on to bigger and better things. Both auditioned for Saturday Night Live, but it was ultimately Kenan that landed the role. Kel has gone on to star in some smaller stuff, but never found fame the same way he had with Kenan & Kel. The friends seemed to remain close, and even hinted at a possible reunion.

“Oh yeah, we’ve definitely been talking about it," Kel told Jimmy Fallon. "Just to get back in those shoes, on stage together, we were both like, ‘Oh man, we gotta do something together again.’”

“I mean, we might as well; it couldn’t hurt, “ teased Kenan. “If people want it then they should have it.”

Well guess what, friends? It happened! Kenan, Kel, and some other familiar faces finally got together to punch us in the nostalgia!

They Told Us They Could Erase Pen, But It Turns Out Blue Erasers Have An Entirely Different Purpose

Going to class and using pen was a pretty confident move. What, you don't think you're going to make a mistake? I spell my own name wrong on a regular basis, how can you be so sure of yourself? Well, then came those blue erasers. The so-called pen erasers would help even those who are overconfident in their spelling abilities. In theory, they were supposed to remove the pen from your paper, or at least that's what we all thought. Instead, we would be left with torn paper and illegible notes. I was always terrified of writing in pen, so

If you were anything like me, you had a collection of those white puffy cases on VHS and were really proud of how many you had accumulated. The thing is, Disney has continued making great movies in recent years, even though they don't exactly look how we remember them looking. Sure, everything is a little bit more 3D and perhaps slightly too realistic, but the stories will still hit you right in the heart. However, lately they have been turning their sights onto something a
