Sophomoric (*grin*) but far and away, Nickolodeon's finest show.
16 July 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm 17.

I was 10 or 11 when I started seeing this show while channel surfing, and I was pleasantly suprised with what I saw. Nickelodeon had been the home, at the time, to countless terrible shows such as "Nick Arcade" and "Fifteen". Anyway, if Nickelodeon decides to do something sane and cancel mindless tripe like "All That" and "Kenan and Kel" and replace with re-reruns of this, "Doug", "Finders Keepers" (remember this?), and "Salute Your Shorts", the next generation of 5th graders will be all too better.
