The greatest comedy duo of the 1990s was finally reunited, thanks to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell first came together on Nickelodeon's Saturday night variety show, All That. It was on this show that the Good Burger sketch first appeared, and was later expanded into a full-length movie. The star of Good Burger is Ed (portrayed by Kel); a simpleminded fry cook who tends to take orders a bit too literally, much to the chagrin of his customers.
20 years after the introduction of this legendary sketch, Jimmy Fallon brought them onto The Tonight Show. Everyone was instantly thrown back in time seeing Kel dressed up like Ed — braids and all — behind the counter at Good Burger.
What really sealed the deal was hearing his trademark phrase, "Welcome to Good Burger, home of the Good Burger. Can I take your order?"
Ed's antics prevailed, when one customer asked for mustard and another for a chicken wrap (which Ed interprets as 'chicken rap'), but the real magic happened when the third customer, a construction worker played by Kenan, stepped out onto the stage.
When the two old partners saw each other, the crowd could not contain themselves.
The whole thing was magical, including when Kenan's character gets more than he bargained for after placing his order.
The only thing missing was hearing Ed sing, "I'm a dude, he's a dude, she's a dude, 'cause we're all dudes!" But that's okay. We can wait for another reunion at 25 years.
