“Welcome to Good Burger, home of the Good Burger, can I take your order?” These iconic words evoke a wave of nostalgia for anyone who grew up in the 1990s. They belong to the lovable and dopey cashier of the fast food joint Good Burger, a character brought to life by Kel Mitchell on the popular Nickelodeon sketch comedy show, All That.
All That, which premiered in 1994, was essentially a kid-friendly version of Saturday Night Live and became a nostalgic comedic treasure trove for many. Among its standout cast members were Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell, who formed an inseparable duo both on and off-screen. Their chemistry was so potent that they even got their own show, Kenan & Kel. However, it was the Good Burger sketch and Ed character that truly stole the spotlight.
Recognizing the popularity of this sketch and character, Nickelodeon enlisted Kenan and Kel to star in a feature film based on it. Thus, Good Burger was born. The film followed Kenan Thompson’s character, Dexter, as he joined the staff of Good Burger and formed an unlikely friendship with Ed. While Dexter’s initial motives were self-serving, he quickly grew fond of his coworkers and helped them overcome their rivals at Mondo Burger, an evil fast food joint. Although the film didn’t break box office records, it wasn’t a flop either, and both Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell look back on it with fondness.
For years, it seemed like Dexter and Ed’s story had reached its conclusion. Kel Mitchell did reprise his role for special occasions like the All That revival. However, in March 2023, Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell made a much-anticipated appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and confirmed that a sequel to Good Burger was officially in the works at Nickelodeon and Paramount.
Good Burger 2 promises a new adventure, brimming with fresh characters, a captivating storyline, and undoubtedly, a whole host of zany escapades. Fans can’t wait to see what the dynamic duo of Dexter and Ed have in store for them this time around. Stay tuned for more updates on the returning cast, plot details, release information, and everything else we know about Good Burger 2.
