That Ole Slapstick Does It Every Time
8 August 2000 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

This show is genuinely funny.There are a whole load of similar American kids TV shows but where this one scores is that it goes for laughs all the time. Other shows sometimes have serious episodes and moralise from time to time but Kenan & Kel go for laughs from start to finish in each episode.The character of Kel is probably the most dumb in TV history but he is the constant source of laughs in this show.Kenan is his long-suffering friend who usually tries to clear up the messes that Kel creates.However,Kenan usually makes things worse etc.Basically, the show appeals to kids but Kenan & Kel is good fun TV for folks of all ages.
