Well damn, I MUST be getting old. I was in bed, watching The Nanny on Nick @ Nite (which in itself makes me feel old because I remember watching that in prime time) and I saw a commercial for Good Burger*.
You all remember the Good Burger sketch from All That, right? With Kenan and Kel? And you all remember when they turned it into a movie, right?
Well apparently today’s youth have NO IDEA about any of that. Do you want to know how they were promoting the movie?
“From the creators of iCarly and Drake and Josh, and staring SNL’s Kenan Thompson…”
Say what?! It’s not from the creators of iCarly and Drake and Josh. I mean, it IS, but those shows weren’t even around when the Good Burger sketch first aired. In fact, Miranda Cosgrove (the “Carly” in iCarly) was only 1 year old when the sketch first aired. She couldn’t even speak and now she’s got her own show (which in itself is a spinoff of a spinoff of a show featuring All That cast members) that was created by the guy who created Good Burger the movie.
This is just insanity. And just when I was coming to grips with the fact that I’m 25.
I guess it’s time I get out my glasses, find a good rocking chair, and start practicing my “back in my day” stories because I swear my childhood memories have become “vintage classics.” To quote Miss Fine, “Oy.”
*It’s on Sunday at 8 if you want to relive your childhood.
Your Wikipedia “fun fact” regarding Good Burger: When the movie debuted on cable in 2007 Nickelodeon made some cast members re-voice lines to censor out the words “ass” and “sucks”. (They weren’t in the same sentence, that really WOULD have required censoring).
