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!
