All That’s Kel Mitchell and Lori Beth Denberg Love Being a Part of ’90s Nostalgia

Being a part of a show as beloved as Nickelodeon’s All That can have its perks, at least that’s how former cast members Kel Mitchell and Lori Beth Denberg tell it (for one, Mitchell gets free burgers pretty much everywhere he goes, provided he performs the Good Burger greeting for everyone in the restaurant). But it can also come with its own weird challenges like coming to terms with the fact they’re now a part of ’90s nostalgia. On the set of Nickelodeon's new Double Dare, The A.V. Club talked with Denberg and Mitchell about being on the show and how it feels to be a huge part of so many childhoods.

Kel Mitchell Still Does His Good Burger Character, and It Gets Him Free Burgers

Former Nickelodeon star is reuniting with his All That cast members on “Double Dare” revival

Kel Mitchell has largely stayed out of the public eye since his time on Nickelodeon’s All That and Kenan & Kel, but that hasn’t stopped him from still getting recognized as his dimwitted “Good Burger” cashier, Ed.

“I’ll go to a restaurant and if it’s a burger spot, like, I gotta do the ‘Welcome to Good Burger’ for everybody in there,” Mitchell said during an interview with A.V. Club. “And I get free burgers, so there’s perks.”

For those who were born after the 1990s: Ed (Mitchell) always greeted customers with the line, “Welcome to Good Burger, home of the Good Burger. Can I take your order?” The character first debuted on Nickelodeon’s sketch comedy series, All That, and was later adapted into a feature film in 1997, starring Mitchell and Saturday Night Live’s Kenan Thompson, whom he starred with in All That and Kenan & Kel.

Mitchell and Thompson are set to return to Nickelodeon for its revived game show, Double Dare, along with fellow All That cast member Lori Beth Denberg. The new version of Double Dare features actress Liz Koshy as host, with original emcee Marc Summers on hand to give color commentary.

Double Dare features two teams competing to win prizes by answering brain-bending trivia questions, completing messy, physical stunts and ultimately facing the infamous obstacle course: The human hamster wheel, the classic gigantic mouth, the wringer and the iconic Double Dare nose, according to the network.

All That premiered in 1994 and his been responsible for launching the careers of Mitchell and Thompson, as well as Amanda Bynes and Nick Cannon. Mitchell said that back then, they had no idea how much of ’90s cultural touchstone the show would become.

“I don’t think any of us knew how big it was going to be,” he said. “I’m talking all the way down to the producers. We didn’t know. It took off.”
