Extra Slices:

-- The new All That will feature shorter skits to fit more sketches in per show. [more info]

-- Nickelodeon President Brian Robbins, who co-created the original All That series has said that the original theme song by TLC will stay, at least for now. (Many of the old fans might revolt if it didn’t). But Robbins said they might decide to change the song later on — possibly even to the modernized version Chance the Rapper shared. [info and Chance's version of the All That theme]

-- Robbins also revealed that decision to bring back All That was done in part to reinvigorate the talent pipeline that he argues had dried up. “We needed to develop more talent, live-action talent,” Robbins said. “The well was dry. All That had always been this amazing pipeline of talent for Nickelodeon, not only in front of the camera but behind the camera.” Robbins continued: “when we first created the show, that was the idea: To have this great lab. You couldn’t have the lab without the good show. I’m not discounting that, but I kinda felt like if we could recapture the magic comedically and the zeitgeist of All That, and find great kids again, then it would be a win-win for the network.” [more info]

-- All That has it's own Instagram and Facebook pages and YouTube channel, filled with content from the '90s and modern version of the show!
