A Nickelodeon Classic!
5 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Kenan & Kel Has GOT to be one of the best TV Shows On Nickelodeon, Right to this very day in 2006. The Stories Were Good, The Acting Was Great and Unlike the cheesy and over-the-top shows aired on nickelodeon these days, It was Absolutely HILARIOUS in a fun, family way. Its a total classic, Right up there in the top Nickelodeon Stakes with Are You Afraid Of The Dark? and Rugrats. If Only all the other shows on Nickelodeon Right now weren't as Trashy and Too far as This One-off sitcom. The best Character is Probably Kel, He made me laugh the most. Although, No matter what they star in Seperatly, or no matter how many cheesy programmes Nickelodeon Seme To Come up with, NOTHING Beats this One-off Entertainment Genius!
