"Pete & Pete" Star Danny Tamberelli To Marry Fiancée In Spring 2018

A huge congratulations are in order for '90s Nickelodeon star Danny Tamberelli and his fiancée, Katelyn Detweiler, who have announced that they'll be getting married next Spring!


Katelyn Detweiler

New Jersey native Danny (35), the star of '90s Nickelodeon favorites The Adventures of Pete & Pete, All That and Figure It Out, as well as '90s Nick UK favorite The Magic School Bus, and a performer in in three bands - Jounce, Undone Sweaters and Middle Blue - will wed literary agent and "Immaculate" & "Transcendent" author Katelyn Detweiler, a Marlborough Township native and graduate of Upper Perkiomen Valley High School, on Saturday 5th 2018. They will tie the knot in front of 250 guests in an old steel factory in Pennsylvania, where the bride grew up. Mike Maronna [Big Pete] will also be a groomsman at the wedding!

It's not clear where the two plan to hold the ceremony, but the odds-on favorites would appear to be either Phoenixville Foundry or the SteelStacks in Bethlehem.

The couple, who live together in Brooklyn, New York, recently sat down with Page Six to spill all the details on their relationship and the upcoming nuptials!



How and when did you guys meet?

Katelyn: Well, we were swiping on Tinder in September 2014.
Danny: When Tinder was the only thing around.
Katelyn: Bumble wasn’t hot yet, so it was like Tinder or bust and I saw this person that looked familiar, but he didn’t have any write-up under it. Usually, if a guy didn’t have any [bio], I thought that was sketchy and I would swipe left, but I recognized that face. I was curious and it was just the curiosity of, “Would he swipe right on me? Would we match?” And then we did, but then I thought, “I can’t message him first. I’ll feel creepy since there isn’t anything to go off in the bio.” I waited for him.

Did you think his profile was fake?

Katelyn: There were some pictures that felt more personal … but honestly, no.
Danny: Yeah, I had some pictures of me with my friends, like a likable guy, and me on-stage playing in a band.
Katelyn: I definitely had some friends in the lead-up to the first in-person date being like, “What if it’s not him? What if you’re being Catfished?”
Danny: And then me showing up 30 minutes late to our first date probably enforced that a little bit.
Katelyn: I was texting [friends] while I was sitting there debating whether to stay or not and I did.

Where was your first date?

Katelyn: Sharlene’s, a bar on Flatbush in Brooklyn. Very fancy first date.
Danny: Well I wouldn’t bring someone to a fancy place to impress them because that’s not the kind of person I am. And I wouldn’t lead with that foot being like, “Hey, let’s go to some crazy mixology place,” [and] then the next time [she’d ask], “Why are we at Sharlene’s? And why are you drinking a can of PBR?”
Katelyn: And you wouldn’t want to spend $15 on a cocktail in case you hated me.
Danny: Well, I guess that’s true too.


Katelyn Detweiler

When did you first realize you were in love?

Danny: I realized pretty early on that there was something really special. Kate and I have this really warped sense of humor and I don’t think anyone I’ve ever dated in my life has truly gotten or understood the weirdness and Kate is just as weird. It’s the best. There’s something to be said about that. I just knew this was something I’ve never experienced before. This is love. It was in December 2014, around Christmas.
Katelyn: Yeah, he said it in my childhood bedroom, Christmas weekend after going to my 10-year high school reunion, which, in hindsigh, was bold that I took him to that after three months of dating, but it was great. I was watching him there and that was when I was like, “I hope he says it soon.” He had been, like, with his finger, writing, “I love you” on my back and on my arm and whenever I would say, “What are you writing?” he wouldn’t say. He did say “I heart you” once.
Danny: Oh, boy. That’s something you don’t want to hear a 33-year-old say in real life.

How did Danny propose?

Katelyn: We went up to Montauk in March after it had been so nice in February. There were a string of weekends that were like 50 degrees and beautiful and we were like, “Let’s do a long weekend in Montauk.” So we were driving up on a Friday … in a snow storm. … So, we were rallying and were like, “Let’s go for a walk on the beach.” I had known maybe it was coming up soon, but he had told me he hadn’t talked to my dad and my mom had lied, too, and said nothing …
Danny: I put my phone in my pocket and I was going to video me proposing to her, get her point of view of it, but it was so cold on the beach that it juiced my battery and my phone died. I was like, “Aw, man! This is never going to work. Oh, I’ll ask her to take a video.” Usually when I ask her to take a video, I do something stupid to capture the stupidity for me for later. So she thought I was maybe going to jump in the water. I asked her if she was recording and I made a fake-out move to do something and I just came right back and got down on one knee in the snow and popped out the ring.
Katelyn: We went back to the Airbnb, drank some scotch, called our moms and families and then went to Shagwong [a bar in Montauk].

Is Mike Maronna [Big Pete] a groomsman?

Danny: Yes, Mike is a groomsman. He will definitely be in my wedding. I [asked him] on our podcast [The Adventures of Danny and Mike]. We were just talking about it when I came back from Montauk. The producer, Jeremy, is also in the wedding, so I just asked them both at the same time. Mike was very happy, which I thought was cool. I’ve known him since I was 7 years old and he’s one of my oldest friends.

Are any of the “All That” cast members coming to the wedding?

Danny: We’ll see. They’re on the A-list. I mean it’s on a Saturday and Kenan [Thompson] might be shooting Saturday Night Live at that point, but he’s got the date now. Josh Server will come from California for sure.

Where are you doing your honeymoon?

Danny: We’re looking at Portugal and Spain.
Katelyn: I said Italy, but he’s been there too many times.
Danny: I’m Irish and Italian and I’ve been to both of those countries just to make sure I knew where I came from. I’ve spent a lot more time in Italy than Ireland.
Katelyn: I like the idea of the Azores off the coast of Portugal. I feel like they’re not super fancy and popular yet. I want to go somewhere without Zika. Somewhere with water in Europe.
Danny: Without Zika.

All that's left to do is get Polaris signed on to perform "Hey Sandy" at the reception!

Bad Seeds | Original Harvey Beaks Pilot From 2013 | Nickelodeon

Check out the original unaired pilot episode of Nickelodeon's popular original animated series Harvey Beaks (Bad Seeds) from 2013!:


Harvey Beaks: The Original Pilot (2013) from Ian Saldivar on Vimeo.

Following Nickelodeon picking up the new series, the Harvey Beaks production crew remade the pilot of Harvey Beaks into the episode "Pe-choo!" (#101A), which became the shows series premiere episode. The pilot was written, directed and storyboarded by the shows creator, C.H. Greenblatt.

Although the pilot and series are mostly the same, there are some minor differences between the two:

- In the pilot episode, Technobear started out as an adult character and was originally voiced by C.H. Greenblatt. In the TV series, he is re-animated as a kid and currently voiced by Mason Vaughn;

- Irving was originally voiced by Chris Parnell (As Told by Ginger, Glenn Martin DDS) in the pilot;

- Rooter originally appeared with darker tone of his skin while his face is lighter. His Mohawk is styled as combed behind;

- The Spirit of Wetbark Lake was light greenish with hints of orange in the pilot. But later, his skin color changed to light blue.

- Rooter was seen sitting in front of the waterfall with Jeremy hiding behind the boulders on the right. But in "Pe-Choo!," Technobear takes Rooter's place;

- Tara is brown in the pilot, but in the TV series, her color gets changed to violet;

- Unlike "Pe-Choo!," Fee kidnapped many lake comers, including Technobear, and told them to "hate Harvey" or else she'll allow Foo to take off his shoes and spread his noxious odors at them;

- The pilot, unlike the show, was animated in Flash by Mercury Filmworks in Ottowa, the same company responsible for shows such as Wander Over Yonder and Star vs. the Forces of Evil;

- In the pilot, Harvey and Irving's last name originally was "Tweets"!

Target Launches Exclusive "Legends Of The Hidden Temple" Board Game

North America: Target has unveiled a score of licensed board games featuring popular ‘90s properties, including Nickelodeon's hit '90s game show Legends of the Hidden Temple!


Produced by Pressman Toy Corporation, the third largest game manufacturer in the United States, the Legends of the Hidden Temple board game is available to purchase right now, exclusively at Target stores! Oh, and best of all? Target now ships to the UK!

Below is the official Legends of the Hidden Temple product description, via PressmanToy.com!:

"Welcome to the Hidden Temple! Where the rooms are filled with lost treasures that are protected by mysterious Mayan Temple Guards. Only Olmec knows the legends behind the treasures in his temple. Six teams will begin their journey, but only one will earn the chance to enter the Temple and retrieve the lost treasure. But beware – to earn this privilege, you must endure tests of fortitude and intelligence, winning the Pendants of Life to protect you from the dreaded Temple Guards who are protecting the artifacts. Do you have what it takes to take on all three rounds and escape from the Temple in time? The choices are yours and yours alone!

To be victorious, you must retrieve a lost treasure and successfully escape the Temple as a team or individually. With your fellow contestants, you must decide what lost treasure you seek. In round 1, the first three teams to cross the treacherous Moat twice will advance to the next round. One player from the eliminated team becomes Olmec and another eliminated player becomes the host, Kirk Fogg.

Round 2 takes you to the Steps of Knowledge, where you will undergo various mental challenges. Be one of the first two teams to answer two questions correctly. Listen carefully as the Olmec reads the legend aloud for clues, as correct answers are the only way to earn a chance to enter Olmec’s Temple.

Your strength and speed will be tested in round 3: The Temple Games. Compete to earn Pendants of Life in three rigorous challenges, including the Golden Cup of Belshazzar, Galileo’s Cannonball, and The Smashed Printing Plate of Frederick Douglass. If you make it through all three and earn the most Pendants of Life, you may finally enter the Temple!

Alas, round 4: The Temple Run! You must race through the Temple, retrieve the lost treasure, and escape. Your time begins as soon as Olmec lowers his gate. Watch out for the Temple Guards and be mindful of the clock, for you only have three minutes to complete your mission – or you will be trapped in the Temple forever. Are you brave enough to uncover the legends of the Hidden Temple?"

Each Legends of the Hidden Temple board game pack comes with:

- 12 double-sided Game Board panels: one side forms the Moat to cross for round one, and the other forms different rooms in the Temple;

- 25 different treasure cards to find;

- Two tiny gold plastic cups;

- Two tiny plastic balls;

- A book of legends that have stories and trivia questions;

- 72 mini cards with one of the six teams on them;

- Three custom Temple Run dice;

- Six team tokens with stands;

- Six team dice;

- Three Silver Monkey cards;

- Three Temple Guard cards;

- And 16 Locked Door Tokens.

A closer look at Target and Pressman's LOTHT board game, including photos of the game pieces, can be found on BuzzerBlog.

Legends of the Hidden Temple is one of more than 70 exclusive games showcasing popular ‘90s properties that the retailer will be rolling out this summer and fall. Additional game highlights include: Bob Ross Art of Chill, Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego Card Game, Saved by the Bell Game, The Oregon Trail Hunt for Food Card Game and Super Mario Bros.

Australia: Nickelodeon SLIME CUP 2017 Features Duo From Dapto, NSW In The Finals

Scrambling through a sticky, slimy obstacle course earned two New South Wales teens their 15 minutes of fame with a spot on national television Friday night!


Best friends Jordyn Allan and Alysha Paul, both aged 13 and from Dapto, NSW, didn’t think Nickelodeon Australia & New Zealand would accept their application for SLIME CUP 2017, but luckily for the girls, they did, and now they’re onto the finals!

The pair, known as the Dapdoids, were one of 15 teams selected from around Australia and New Zealand, much to the surprise of their classmates and Jordyn’s mum.


“It was a nerve-wracking experience,” Alysha told the Illawarra Mercury.

“[The slime] was really cold and some of it was chunky. When it dried it was really gross actually and really smelly.”

Jordan said the most embarrassing part of the sticky obstacle course was being interviewed by the host, Kristy Best.

“What we were saying probably didn’t make sense and we were acting crazy,” she laughed.

Both encouraged other brave young-guns to have a crack at television, Jordyn advising to “give it your all”.


The Dapdoids will be one of five teams to tough out a new inflatable obstacle course extravaganza in the final round to win the ultimate prize, the 2017 Nickelodeon SLIME CUP trophy.


The Slime Cup obstacle course.

Over the past five weeks, 15 teams of besties have tested their stamina, strength and stomachs on a series of larger-than-life inflatable challenges. Who will be walk away with the 2017 Nickelodeon SLIME CUP trophy? Tune in to season finale of the second season of SLIME CUP, premiering Friday 4th August 2017 at 5.30pm (AU) | 6:30am (NZ) on Nickelodeon!


This years Nickelodeon SLIME CUP teams are (finalists in bold): Dude Doubles Lit Lads, Team Bolt, Danger Rangers; Class Clowns Cowabunga Crew, Mighty Pandas, Sponge Gods; Sista Squads Bad As Ballerinas, Purple Pukana, Split Masters; Fierce Fams Batsibs, Bendyz, Goo Monkeys; and Cray Cray Combos Dapdoid, Red Runners and The Emils.

Drake Bell Talks Josh Peck Wedding Drama, Says He's Open to "Drake & Josh" Reunion

It's all good between Drake Bell and Josh Peck.

The 31-year-old actor told ET's Sophie Schillaci on Friday during a Facebook Live that he and his former Drake & Josh co-star are on good terms again after the wedding drama.


Bell made headlines last month when he tweeted that he was not invited to Peck's wedding, writing in since-deleted tweets that "the message is clear….Loyalty is key… ALWAYS remember where you came from."

"We've been together 18 years, Josh and me, me and Josh," Bell explained to ET. "We've been so close, it was just one of those things where you know, I'd been talking to him, and he's been telling me about the engagement. And then I saw on social media, the wedding, and I didn't hear about it. So, it was just one of those things where it was just like, 'You didn't even tell me?! I had to find out on social media?' And then you're like, 'You know what!? Fine!' and then I'm like, wait, I probably shouldn't have done that."

"Yeah, I said the ties are cut or whatever, but I should have just texted that to him, you know," he continued. "I was just being cranky."

"You know, it's like sibling rivalry for a minute," Bell added. "But no, I mean we've gone through every up and down that you can think of that two guys can go through. I mean, we've done our 18 hour days on set and it's, 'What are you doing afterwards?'…'Going to your house and watching movies and playing video games,' even though we've spent all day together. And then there's other times where I'm only speaking dialogue to him. You know? It's like, 'Nope, sorry, I don't wanna talk, I don't wanna.' It's just what brothers go through, what best friends [go through] and it's the yin and yang of brotherly love."

As far as how much media attention the tweets received, Bell revealed that he was "shocked."

"I couldn't believe it! I mean, what a slow news day!" I was like, 'Trump, can't you tweet something?! Please! Like, just do something to get the attention off of this!'" he joked. "But yeah, I was really surprised and what I was more surprised at how the fans went after Josh. That bummed me out because I was reading the comments and thinking, 'Wait a minute, you know, I can say it but you can't!' I was like wanting to defend Josh, be like 'Whoa, easy guys, easy. This is between us.'"

The two have since talked and cleared things up.

"It is what it is dude. I love the kid," the former Nickelodeon star expressed. "I would work with him until I'm 80 years, you know. I wanna make Grumpy Old Men with the guy. I wanna make The Odd Couple when we're old, you know? So no hard feelings, It's just when you've been so close to somebody for so long, I mean, there's just certain things that you know, 'Hey why'd you do that? C'mon man.'"

So can we expect a Drake & Josh reunion anytime soon?

"You gotta talk to Peck, you gotta talk to Josh," Bell responded. "I would love to do it. I would love to. I mean, I always say in this situation, I'm the John Lennon of the Beatles. If there's time, if it's in our schedules and it's right, I would jump in it in a second. Because … there's actors that I've done TV shows with, movies with, another TV show with, a pilot with, and still don't have the connection that I have with Josh, you know? The chemistry … and what I have with Josh is so unattainable in this business."

For now, Bell is focusing on his music career and his latest single, "Honest." He also has two films, American Satan and Cover Versions, in the works. For more on Bell, make sure to subscribe to his official YouTube channel!

The Power Rangers Help Give Young Cancer Patient A Toys 'R' Us Shopping Spree

The Power Rangers are always up for saving the world, but they also have the power to bring joy to fans, and they did just that with a young fan named Grayson!

Grayson Dodd is 3 years old and sadly is dealing with AML Leukemia. A charity called the Foundation for Strength decided to make his day by teaming up with the Westland Toys 'R' Us and the Power Rangers to give him a shopping spree, allowing Grayson to shop in the store before it opened up for business!

You can view a photo of Grayson with his parents Kevin and April, the Power Rangers, and Geoffrey the Giraffe.

According to Foundation for Strength's Cory Allen though, Grayson was so enamored with the Power Rangers, who are his favorite heroes, by the way, that shopping wasn't even a priority.

"Grayson had so much fun with the Power Rangers that he wasn't even concerned with shopping for toys. He was finally back to being a fun lovely kid again, playing tag, battle swords and hide and seek with the Rangers. His dad mentioned that this was the first time he has seen Grayson with this much joy in over a month."

It was a welcome reprieve for Grayson, giving him a memory he will never forget. He had a full cart overflowing with toys by the end of it, including a new bicycle, which he can ride after he gets out of the hospital, where's he's undergoing chemotherapy.


Grayson Dodd visits with the Power Rangers during a shopping trip to Toys R Us.

Foundation for Strength seeks to help those who are battling cancer and diseases like it, giving people like Grayson reasons to smile and hope. They'll be holding several events to help raise money and awareness,

The Foundation for Strength mission is to raise social consciousness and donate funds to those who are battling cancer or other life-threatening diseases. Several fundraising events will be held annually to provide financial assistance to those in need. The group also aims to raise social consciousness by speaking out about those we have lost and those who are battling cancer. For more about the Foundation for Strength, a 501(c)(3) charity, you can head to their official website, FoundationForStrength.org.

Grayson's shopping spree took place just a day before he had to go back into the hospital for an extended stay of chemotherapy treatments.

Power Rangers Ninja Steel, the current season of Saban's iconic Power Rangers franchise, returns with brand-new episodes Saturdays at 12:00pm ET/PT from Saturday 12th August 2017!
