Tv Season Info

Likable kidcom about a lumpy misfit and his debonair, orange-soda-loving buddy. Rapper Coolio composed the theme song for the show, which was a spin-off from Nickelodeon's variety entry `All That.' The duo's young fans also fed on their 1997 big-screen outing, `Good Burger,' turning it into a modest hit.

When Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell get together, atoms bond and sparks fly. They have chemistry -- an electric connection that Nickelodeon is using... to supercharge its Saturday night lineup.

Ultimately, Kenan & Kel is an adequate comedy for older tweens (though nostalgic adults is the more likely audience), but you might want to follow up with a reality check to be sure your kids know how things work in the real world.
