Kel Mitchell has been on the go this week. Now the host of Game Shakers, Mitchell brought some nostalgia to Super Bowl opening day. Reprising the role of Ed, from the motion picture film, Good Burger, Mitchell fielded questions from both New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons players during media availability in Houston, Texas.
Laughing it up with Tom Brady, singing “We’re All Dudes” from All That? Yeah, if his comedy career doesn’t quite work out, sideline reporters beware; he’s got the rapport with athletes already locked down!
The now 38-year-old actor/comedian won the hearts of Nickelodeon fans in the 90s for his roles in All That and Kenan & Kel.He also has a penchant for letting you know about his love affair with orange soda!
Is he promoting some sort of possible Good Burger reunion? Just last year, Mitchell informed me that it’s possible. In fact he indicated that both he and his former All That and Kenan & Kel co-star have “definitely” talked about some kind of sequel or reunion. “Everybody is talking about a Good Burger 2, us doing a Bad Boys type of film,” Kel Mitchell told me in an interview by phone last year.
“Me and Kenan have definitely been talking about it. You might definitely see something coming up with me and him soon.”
He furthered that by adding: “We have definitely been talking about doing something big for the fans, because everybody has been looking for it,” he added. “They want us back together.”
While you’re waiting with baited breath for that, Mitchell sat down with The PostGame’s Jeffrey Eisenband.
While sitting in a comfy swivel chair out in Houston, Mitchell, a fan of drinking good ‘ol H20 informed Big Jeff that he is actually starting an orange soda company. “I do stand-up and people bring sodas for me to sign at the end of it,” Mitchell told Eisenband.

“I’m working with a brand and I want it to be a healthy soda, a non-calorie soda because I work out a lot. I want people to be healthy. No calories, no sugar. It’s very different. It still tastes good. This is the mogul side of me.”
In addition to his new business venture, Mitchell discussed a myriad of things like his love for Michael J. Fox’s Back 2 The Future films. Asked if it should be called Back to the Future Part IV or have a new name, Mitchell jokes it could be called “Black to the Future.” He says it could be made by Tyler Perry.
Mitchell also schooled listeners of Eisenband’s podcast on the makeup of Nickelodeon slime! You know, that green goo that was a trademark on television and at Nickelodeon’s theme park in Florida. “Sliming kind of always goes wrong because of where it goes,” Mitchell said. “On the show Figure It Out, slime would come unexpectedly. It would get in places you didn’t want it to be. And it would take a long time, you need a luffa to get a lot of the slime off.
“It’ll stain your clothes. I remember I had this jersey I really liked that Nickelodeon gave me and we had a slime competition thing and it got on my jersey and it never really came out how it should have. It comes off shoes really good, like leather.”
If you enjoyed Mitchell at opening day media day, as well as his appearance on Eisenband’s podcast, the buck doesn’t stop there!
There will be much more of him!
Set your DVR’s. Mitchell has confirmed that he will be appearing at Nickelodeon events throughout the week, even dressing as his Good Burger character, Ed, for Super Bowl Opening Night.
