The Nickelodeon show All That will air a marathon in April on the Splat Network celebrating its 22nd anniversary. Original cast members, including Kenan Thompson of SNL fame, reunited to film original sketches that will be shown during the marathon. With Fuller House (originally Full House) on Netflix getting a second season, here are a few more shows from the past I’d like to see a newer version of:
Who’s the Boss?
Airing from 1984-1992, the show centered around a kindhearted manny, Tony, and his daughter Samantha, who moves in with Angela, her son Jonathan, and the very funny grandmother Mona. Both being single parents, a slow burn love develops throughout the series as we watch their lives progress and their children grow up. I’d love to see where Samantha and Jonathan are now and if Tony and Angela’s love survived the test of time.
Married… with Children
Al, Peggy, Kelly, Bud, Marcy, and Jefferson – each character having their own quirks, catch phrases, and controversies. A show based on a shoe salesman who hates his job, his marriage, and life in general, we watched as Al faced a new problem each episode; dumb daughter Kelly and wanna-be DJ Bud make Al’s life even harder, but Peggy, his wife, is the true thorn in his side as all she wants is money and a man with a high sex drive (two things Al has none of). Kooky neighbors Marcy and Jefferson round out the cast of one of the funniest shows of our time.
Saved by the Bell
Who doesn’t remember Zack and Kelly? Slater and Jessie? Lisa and Screech? This was what high school dreams were made of – I was extremely disappointed when I learned my high school was nothing like Bayside High. Though we did get a spin-off of their college years, I’d still love to see them as adults navigating the crazy world as it is today!
Sadly, most of the cast has passed away, but had things been diff’rent, I would love to have seen a reunion. Mr. Drummond, the rich man who lived in a penthouse with his daughter and maid, took in two black inner city kids – which at the time was controversial; with the Angelina Jolie’s of the world, it’s thankfully much more common. “What’chu talkin’ ‘bout, Willis?” One of the most famous phrases to come from the show can still be heard today: from me.
ALF (Alien Life Form) accidentally lands in the garage of a normal wholesome family, and chaos ensues. The hairy little alien has a hunger for cats and a sarcastic humor that enrages the father of the family, but it just made him more loveable. Who else had the stuffed animal that talked?
The Seavers were a Long Island family where the dad stayed home with the kids and worked out of his in-home psychiatric office while the mom went out to work. Oldest child Mike only had one thing on his mind: girls. He and his friend, Boner, would often get into trouble as the younger kids, Carol and Ben, got into their own messes. Mostly a comedy show, there were tender and serious moments as well. An episode that sticks out in particular has Carol’s boyfriend (a then unknown Matthew Perry) die in a drinking and driving accident.
Charles in Charge
Another manny, this time a young college student, moves in with a family to take care of the three children. Charles, played by Scott Baio, tried his hardest to keep things in order but, of course, nothing ever went perfectly. With his friend Buddy always by his side, the duo managed to always find their way out of trouble in 22 hilarious minutes!
