Brian Robbins Wants to Bring Back 'Good Burger' As a Animated Series

Could we finally be getting a sequel to Nickelodeon's iconic movie, Good Burger?

In a recent interview with ViacomCBS' Streaming On series, Brian Robbins, President and CEO of Nickelodeon and Chief Content Officer, kids and family for Paramount revealed that he, along with Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell "really want to make a animated Good Burger"! Interestingly, Robbins revealed the news whilst answering which older Nickelodeon shows he would like to bring back, which could suggest that the animated Good Burger would be a TV series rather than a movie.

Update (12/15) - Kel Mitchell has further hinted that a reboot of Good Burger is still in the works.

“You know, we’ve been talking about it,” Mitchell told “Kenan and I, we’re all about it, but we’re letting them work it out contractually and all that stuff like that. But yeah, me and Kenan, we’re down.”

It sounds like his kids would also be down for a Good Burger reboot because according to Mitchell, they “love” watching his old Nickelodeon shows. “My youngest one wants me to do Good Burger all the time,” he said. “I'm doing bedtime stories.”

Based on the iconic All That sketch, the film, originally released in 1997 stars Kel Mitchell and Kenan Thompson as employees of Good Burger, a run-down fast-food restaurant. The movie follows the duo's meatheaded adventures while they try and stop the competition, Mondo Burger, from stealing Ed's secret sauce recipe. Guest stars include Carmen Electra, Sinbad, and Shaquille O'Neal.

Nickelodeon recently revived their iconic '90s sketch show All That featuring a new cast of fresh faces, executive produced by Kenan and Kel. Along with executive producing, Kenan and Kel, along with other legacy cast members, have made special appearances on the revived series, and Ed has even reprised his iconic Ed the Good Burger Guy role.

Since its release in 1997, Good Burger has remained a fan-favorite, and has fans spanning across multiple generations. There has even been a Good Burger-themed pop-up restaurant, which offered fans the chance to sample Good Burgers and Good Shakes, as well as a host of photo ops, and the iconic Good Burger car has been faithfully restored. Famous fans of the movie include fellow Nickelodeon alum Ariana Grande.

There’s actually a Good Burger sequel in the form of a book called Good Burger 2 Go, where somebody forgets their change and Ed follows them across the country to get it back to them.

Good Burger is now available on Blu-ray. All That is available to stream on Paramount+. Try it FREE at

Nickelodeon and ViacomCBS have been busy the last couple of years bringing back legacy properties for audiences of all ages, including Rugrats and iCarly for Paramount+. Thompson also hosted Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards 2021 tentpole event earlier this year.
