If nothing else came out of Comic-Con, we got to see the cast of Nickelodeon’s All That joke about Danny Tamberelli creepily hanging out at a Chuck E. Cheese. The best part? Danny was the one laughing the hardest.
Nickelodeon’s ’90s panel was a mirthful affair that had the whole audience hunched over from laughing so hard. That probably had to do with the first wave of panelists being members of Nickelodeon’s groundbreaking sketch comedy series. Josh Server, Danny Tamberelli, Lori Beth Denberg, and Kel Mitchell all received thunderous applause as they took their seats at the panel. However, the surprise guest that not even they had anticipated got the warmest welcome. Yes, the original Big Ear of Corn itself made an appearance that brought the house down.
In fact, the entire panel became delightfully unruly as the cast members began to endlessly riff on anything they could. It was wonderful seeing these comedic talents as adults. They weren’t R-rated or anything but their level of frankness was immensely welcomed. Danny Tamberelli shared a story that involved Britney Spears’ guest appearance on the show that was adorably risque. While filming a scene with Britney, the director had to ask for another take because Danny was clearly seen staring at Britney’s butt. Everyone in attendance giggled with glee at this pubescent anecdote.
The All That cast wasn’t the only treat in store for fans. The Legends of the Hidden Temple panel also joined the stage to show off the first trailer for the new TV movie based on the classic kids game show. Host Kirk Fogg and Dee Bradley Baker (the voice of Olmec) both will return in the adventure flick, and they promised that this will be a movie by fans and for fans.
Probably the cutest thing was lead actress Isabela Moner, a fourteen-year-old who was so nervous and happy to be at Comic-Con. The crowd gave her tons of support in the form of copious cheering. It was a beautiful representation of the love this community can manifest. That’s the kind of Comic-Con experience everyone should have.
