Though Thompson and Mitchell’s reunion was the bit’s charming center – and the pair’s chemistry showed no signs of strain or age – there was still one more Good Burger related matter to attend to. He’s doing alright. But to most of us, he’s too-high-to-function fast food worker at Good Burger and the stoner companion of Kenan Thompson who all but disappeared after the Kenan & Kel audience grew up. Specifically, Nickelodeon made a huge mark with their programming in the 90s with shows like Hey Arnold, Doug, All That and Kenan and Kel. Ed (Mitchell) is a teenager who lives for his job at Good Burger, a small but friendly neighborhood hamburger stand, while his buddy Dexter (Thompson) also works there, but lack Ed’s single-minded devotion to his job – he’s there because he accidentally destroyed the vehicle of his teacher Mr. Wheat (Sinbad) and has to raise money to pay the damages.
But nothing as pure as Good Burger can last forever.
The late night host’s memories of being a Good Burger employee helped launch the sketch, which you can see below.
The clip featured a “spicy chicken rap” and a lively rendition of “We’re All Dudes”.
People who grew up in the ’90s had long wondered about a “Kenan & Kel” reunion, but Mitchell told outlets that Thompson was not interested.
Kel’s voice was obviously much deeper than when the skit was aired in the 90’s.
The viral popularity of the Good Burger reunion sketch on the Tonight Show is proof of that.
Despite their status as Nickelodeon legends, the double act fell apart in 2003 when they both auditioned for Saturday Night Live and Thompson beat his partner to the role.
The other thing you will notice is that when Kenan finally makes his appearance around the 4 minute mark he looks really excited to see Kel.
