Kel Mitchell's Favorite Scene for "Danger Games" Low Key Channels a "Good Burger" Moment

Nickelodeon is determined to make November 2017 the best month of the year, first with Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie and then with the Game Shakers/Henry Danger crossover special!

"Danger Games" is a three-part Henry Danger episode clocking in at 90 minutes. "Kids are gonna have fun watching that. It’s like a movie," star Kel Mitchell told Seventeen.com. A Nickelodeon veteran, Kel went from playing a slew of characters on All That, orange soda-loving Kel Kimble on Kenan & Kel, and goofy Ed in Good Burger, a Nickelodeon Movie based on one of his most popular All That characters, to Double G on Game Shakers. He made his big return to the network in 2015, following a brief return in Sam & Cat in 2013, and is loving every minute of it.

Kel and his teenage co-stars — Cree Cicchino, Madisyn Shipman, Benjamin Flores Jr., Thomas Kuc — team up with the Henry Danger gang in a very special episode. Since both shows were created by Dan Schneider, it's a no-brainer they would collaborate for something fun. However, the crossover was a long time in the making.

"[The idea of a crossover] lived in the hallways of the studio because we shoot on the same lot," Kel said. "We’ve just been talking about it, 'cause we all hang out during lunch and in the hallways between different shots, and their cast and our cast were always talking about [how] we need to do something fun together."

On the special, Double G throws a "revenge charity" to try and outdo rapper Snoop Dogg's charity earnings. However, Henry Danger's Dr. Minyak (Mike Ostroski) plots to ruin Double G's concert, prompting Captain Man (Cooper Barnes) and Kid Danger (Jace Norman) to partner with the Game Shakers and save both Double G and the concert.

Snoop Dogg actually guest-stars on the episode and Kel's favorite part of filming it was shooting the "massive" concert scene. "We had hundreds of extras, it was [pyrotechnics], it was dancing. I had about 20 background dancers, so I had to learn choreography and all this stuff," Kel shared. When Seventeen.com joked about it taking him back to his Good Burger days with the epic Demented Hills mental institution dance scene, he laughed and agreed. "Yeah, oh yeah! I love doing that type of stuff."


While "Danger Games" premieres this week, Season 3 of Game Shakers won't air until 2018. Besides revealing Josh Server, a fellow All That and Good Burger alum, will guest-star on an episode, Kel teased there will be more shipping moments between the Game Shakers.

The Season 2 finale gave us "Trabe," a romantic pairing between Babe (Cicchino) and Triple G (Flores Jr.; even though they didn't end up together). When Seventeen.com pressed for deets about the future of ships, Kel laughed and said, "It’s some fun with that. You’ll see some *other* fun moments, I’ll just say that." Aww, here it goes — and NickALive! can't wait.

"Danger Games" airs on Saturday, November 25 at 8 p.m. on Nickelodeon USA. Watch a super sneak-peek now on Seventeen.com!

'Power Rangers Live' Tour Postponed To 2019

Saban Brands is going all out for the Power Rangers' 25th Anniversary in 2018, but one part of that celebration has hit a significant snag.

Earlier this year Saban announced Power Rangers Live, a live-action stage show that was set to debut February 2018 and run through at least June 2018, stopping in 50 North American cities. According to an email sent out to customers, however, the production has now been postponed.

“Due to production delays, the Power Rangers Live! tour is postponed," the email read. "We apologize for any inconvenience, tickets will be valid for the rescheduled show once announced. Refunds are available at point of purchase.”

The email doesn't specify a time frame or rescheduled dates, but if you head to the official website a statement reads 'We look forward to bringing you an incredible Power Rangers live event in 2019!".

The earlier email cited production delays, which can include a wide array of things. Some probably expected a few months postponement, but postponing until 20-19 is a big jump. That's not necessarily a bad thing though, as long as it doesn't mean the project falls off the grid altogether.

If it results in a better show, fans will be happy to wait a little longer. If this is just the first step in a cancellation though, it will be a substantial disappointment.

Power Rangers Live mixes cool stunts with martial arts for the entire family with the Ninja Steel Rangers as the stars. It was a perfect time for it too, as Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel is airing next year, all coinciding with the big 25th Anniversary.

Still, at least fans have something to look forward to in 2019...glass half full right?

Speaking of Power Rangers Ninja Steel, the show recently aired its season finale, but the fun isn't over quite just yet. The holiday episode for Ninja Steel is titled "Past, Presents and Future", and will air on Nickelodeon USA on Saturday, December 2 at 12:00pm ET/PT. In the special, when Cleocatra steals the Ninja Power Stars, Sarah (Chrysti Ane) and Santa Claus must travel through time to save the day!

In related Power Rangers news:

- After fans spotted that the trademark for the Power Rangers movie logo was being listed as abandoned, leading some to think that it was either getting replaced or a movie was on the backburner, Saban confirmed with ComicBook that the logo was being renewed;

- Power Rangers Time Force's Red Ranger Jason Faunt recently stopped by the ComicBook.com offices to talk about a variety of Ranger topics, including the recent reboot movie;

- In honor of the 25th anniversary of Power Rangers, Saban has launched a table-top role playing game will air on the streaming giant Twitch. Titled Power Rangers Hyperforce, the series features several key personalities from Power Rangers history and new faces alike playing a brand new engine/concept developed by Hyper RPG set in the Power Rangers universe.

Craig Bartlett Reveals That Helga From ‘Hey Arnold!’ Was Inspired By Childhood Photos of Frida Kahlo

If you were a 90s kid, you probably get slightly triggered by the name Arnold. After all, who can forget the particularly loud and in-your-face yelling from one Helga G. Pataki from Nickelodeon's iconic Hey Arnold! series? From the intro sequence–which saw her screaming at the titular Arnold throughout parts of the neighborhood–through the many episodes focusing on her obsession of good ol’ Football Head, Helga is vital to the show.

So, consider real Arnold-heads shocked when the creator of the show, Craig Bartlett, confirmed recently in an interview with El Estímulo that Helga’s signature look–bow, attitude, and the prominent eyebrows–was inspired by old childhood photos of none other than Frida Kahlo. Although Bartlett gave Helga her iconic pigtails, you can see the similarities in an Instagram post that the creator shared back in August.

#tbt little Frida #helgagpataki

A post shared by Craig Bartlett (@craigbartlett) on

This isn’t the first revelation from Bartlett this year, as the show gears up to come back into your life with Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie, releasing on Thanksgiving. Earlier this summer, he revealed that a lot of the plot and atmosphere of the iconic cartoon was inspired by the magical realism employed by Gabriel García Márquez: “We were reading Gabriel García Márquez and 100 Years of Solitude, and Love in the Time of Cholera,” Bartlett said to Great Big Story. “Those were big influences on us, because magic realism is the term coined about García Márquez’s writing. I wanted there to be a magical realism to Arnold’s house and his neighborhood.”

Hey Arnold! The Jungle Movie will premiere on Friday, Nov. 24, from 7:00-9:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon USA, as part of the networks Thanksgiving celebrations.

Viewers can visit the Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie page on Nick.com and the Nick App, along with the Hey Arnold! Facebook page and Instagram, to get a look at the TV movie. Fans can also watch full-length episodes on Nick.com and the Nick App.

NickSplat will celebrate Hey Arnold! throughout the month of November with fan-favorite episodes every night from 12:00 a.m.-1:00 a.m. (ET/PT). In addition, NickSplat will treat fans to a marathon of every single Hey Arnold! episode beginning Friday, Nov. 17, through Friday, Nov. 24, from 11:00 p.m.–6:00 a.m. (ET/PT). Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie encores Saturday, Nov. 25, and Friday, Dec. 1, at 12:00 a.m. (ET/PT) on TeenNick.

'Hey Arnold!' Creator Craig Bartlett Charts The Path To 'The Jungle Movie'

Plenty of TV shows leave the air with story threads hanging and questions unanswered, but few have done so in the fashion of Hey Arnold! An animated fixture on Nickelodeon during the late ’90s and early ’00s, the series about football-headed fourth-grader Arnold and his exploits in the big city jumped to the big screen in 2002, in the first of what were proposed as two feature-length adventures. A follow-up, Hey Arnold: The Jungle Movie, was set to solve one of the show’s biggest mysteries—the whereabouts of Arnold’s parents, who’d left their infant son in the care of his boarding-house-proprietor grandparents, then disappeared in the fictional Central American nation of San Lorenzo—before factors commercial and creative led to its cancellation. For more than a decade, The Jungle Movie lived on in fan speculation and interview queries; when Nickelodeon began exploring its back catalog for potential reboots and revivals, Bartlett was finally granted the chance to realize his long, lost vision. With Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie now set to debut on Nick this Friday, November 24, The A.V. Club spoke with Bartlett about bringing Arnold and friends back to TV, the multi-generational talent that made The Jungle Movie possible, and the possibility of more Hey Arnold! in the future!

The A.V. Club: A renewed interest in Hey Arnold! cropped up online around the beginning of the 2010s—was that around the time that you became aware of this fan base that wanted closure with Hey Arnold! and had sustained the conversation about The Jungle Movie? Or was it earlier than that?

Craig Bartlett: As soon as the show got canceled, and all from 2002 until 2012, that decade, there was always some interest and people trying to form groups and make petitions, but it seemed to really happen after Facebook came into being. I would say around 2012, the time of those articles that The A.V. Club was doing, it seemed like at that point the real sea change was the fan art got really good. [Laughs.] People who’d grown up on the show and then become adults and gone to art school and become animators and become fine artists—I was seeing fan art that was so good, I was thinking “Geez, if we were still in production, I’d hire those people to work on my show.”

AVC: Did The Jungle Movie create the opportunity to do that?

CB: Yeah. A really cool part of this story is that we were really encouraged by Nickelodeon to mix it up and not only bring back the O.G. Arnold artists and writers from the old days, but bring in the next generation, and I hired artists and writers who loved the show when they were kids. And I think that combination of old-school and new-school really energized the whole project. I can think of so many examples in the finished Jungle Movie of stuff that was done by the next generation. They really brought a lot to it, and it was their love of the show—the love of a kid who loved it as a kid and grew up.

AVC: How did those two generations of creatives mesh?

CB: Really well. A little bit more than two years ago, we spent a long, three-day session breaking the story, and then from there I wrote the outline for the two-hour movie. There were, in that group, a couple writers who had grown up on the show, and I had Michelle Lamoreaux and Joe Purdy—who had been writers on the series—and then just a couple other writer friends that I’d met in between. And so we had a really cool age range from about 30 to 50—there were a whole range of points-of-view and a range of ages. And I think it really helped, and we got along great. I remember there were times when Michelle and I were joking about some really obscure moment in the series—we’re big fans of Helga episodes and Olga episodes—and we’d been telling a little joke, and the next generation writers knew exactly what we were talking about. Nothing escaped them, their knowledge of the series was encyclopedic.

AVC: You basically hired your own institutional knowledge.

CB: [Laughs.] I can’t even describe what a phenomenon it is. I’m sure this has happened elsewhere, but it seems almost like something brand new, where you get to build on this legacy of knowledge that all these people know. Our movie is definitely going to reflect that. When 30-year-olds watch it, they’ll be going, “Oh, that’s a reference to this!”

You know, the clip we showed at San Diego in July? That is so meta. The idea that Helga and Gerald make a video to win the contest so Arnold can go to San Lorenzo, and it’s about how Arnold’s always helping people? It’s basically what the series is, and so we showed in that three-minute clip, all these different examples that were from episodes of the series. And the gag that Helga had been surreptitiously video-taping his whole life: As you watch these clips, from scenes that you probably remember from the series, except the camera’s at a different angle, like now it’s up in a tree or behind a wall or under something. It comments on the series even as you watch a thing that’s hopefully entertaining and funny and good.

AVC: It’s also an efficient method of catch-up for anyone who missed the original series.

CB: Exactly. And that’s why we chose that piece to show in San Diego. It was meant to be all things—both a way to catch up and also to be, “Oh my god, they’re checking every box.”

AVC: Many of the voice actors returned for The Jungle Movie—Dan Castellaneta, Tress MacNeille, Francesca Marie Smith, Anndi McAfee, to name a few—but you did have to cast some replacements. What was it about the actors that you chose for Arnold and Gerald that captured the essence of those characters?

CB: Well, the Arnold character, you know we replaced over and over again, because we had to get a certain, before-puberty, husky, super-chill boy voice. And each of these kids turned into a teenager and their voice cracked and they just didn’t sound like Arnold anymore. And then Gerald is different: It’s such a unique style that Jamil Smith had in the first place, that we kept just trying to keep Jamil around and pitch his voice up. So I was really impressed when Benjamin Flores Jr. [who plays Gerald in the movie] came in—he clearly had watched many episodes and really absorbed the Geraldness. I was super-thrilled.

The same thing went with the other characters: Stinky is such a unique-sounding kid, and I didn’t think that could be imitated—but somehow we did. Eugene, Curly, Sid—those were all the boys we had to bring in. And I just appreciated what a great job the next-generation actors did at mimicking those sounds. Some of them you can’t believe—when you listen to Curly and Eugene in The Jungle Movie, you’ll swear it was the originals.

AVC: Alfred Molina is playing the villain of the piece, La Sombra. Was his casting a wink toward him being in Raiders Of The Lost Ark?

CB: Everybody remembers that scene from Raiders. It’s really funny to, because when everybody meets him, you can tell he’s been asked these questions over and over. The Raiders guy, Doc Ock from Spider-Man 2—I’ve seen him in all kinds of dramatic roles, and I just knew he had the dramatic chops. And you’re not expecting the English accent when he comes in.

AVC: He’s got such a quality of voice, too.

CB: He’s a perfect guy for voice-over. I hope we find a way to reprise his role or write him a new one and keep working with him, because he’s fantastic.

AVC: You say “reprise his role”—are you leaving the opportunity open for more Hey Arnold! after this?

CB: I’ve been saying this all along: The movie’s been made to act perfectly as closure so that everybody feels satisfied that all of the storylines got wrapped up. And also, at the end of the movie, they’re starting sixth grade, so season six is also my hope.

AVC: That’s a might big task to take on: An ending that’s also a beginning.

CB: [Laughs.] Yeah, no kidding. I thought the challenge of making a story that both had complete closure and also left the door open for more stuff—well, that’s TV. TV’s like that. There’s always another season, or you hope there’s another season.

AVC: If you hadn’t had this specific story to tell—the trip to the San Lorenzo, the search for Arnold’s parents—do you think you would’ve still wanted to revisit the series?

CB: It’s so funny—I can’t separate the two. I’ve been thinking about this unfinished business of The Jungle Movie for 15 years, and so it’s really hard to picture it any other way.

It’s funny too because that’s what was going on a few years ago at Nickelodeon. They were really looking at the ’90s properties and going, “Well, which of these would be able to be rebooted?” And as they looked at them, you know they were asking those kinds of questions. They were saying, “If we reboot this, will people think it was just a cash-grab? Just doing it because we can? And that’s not a good reason to reboot a show. We should leave well enough alone.” In my case, when I first came in and was talking to them, I’m like, “Oh yeah, I’ve got a Jungle Movie I need to make. I’ve got this cliffhanger that never got resolved. I’ve got millions of adult fans who were really mad that it got left in this cliffhanger. I would love to do a reboot.” So I just felt I was really lucky in that way. I had the perfect project for them.

AVC: How did The Jungle Movie evolve from its original conception, and this idea you’d kept in the back of your mind while you were working on other projects, to the final product?

CB: When I think about what we were trying to do 15 years ago, and what we ended up doing now, we really benefited from the passage of time. I feel like when we got this chance to do it, clearly the quality of broadcast TV had improved—we’ve got this hi-def, 16:9 big screen that you could show in a theater and it’d look great—I mean, compared to our first movie, which we made for TV and then we blew up to film, and it kind of suffered from that process. I know that if we put The Jungle Movie on a movie screen, it’d look terrific.

We went, “We know we’re going to have to redesign everything because of this new higher-definition format—let’s change it a little bit, let’s make it that a year or so has passed, and that they’re in the fifth grade so that they can all be a year or so older. We can redesign everybody and making them [Laughs.] a little taller, adjust their outfits a little bit.” And I thought, “Fine, we’ll make it so the change doesn’t upset anybody, but you can tell that some time has passed.” We really benefited from that and the story benefited from it, too, because I’d had a decade to think about it, so when I went to write the movie again, I was able to take all the hopes and dreams of the fans into consideration.

AVC: The Jungle Movie is the first of these Nick reboots to debut. What does it mean to you that Hey Arnold! was picked to lead that charge?

CB: I was so happy. I got to tell you: When we were making the show here 20 years ago, I always felt like we were just one of many shows that were being made at Nickelodeon, and I didn’t think we were better or worse than any other show. And so, to be at this point in the history of the whole legacy of Nickelodeon, and have it held in such high esteem, is really great, really flattering. It makes me really happy about the work we did. We knew we were making a good show in the first place, but we didn’t realize it would be so beloved. So that’s nice.
