Paramount+ UK Adds Unaired 'Kenan & Kel' Pilot Episode

Last October, Paramount+ added all four seasons of Nickelodeon's iconic sitcom Kenan & Kel, starring All That and Good Burger stars Kenan Thompson (Saturday Night Live) and Kel Mitchell (Game Shakers) to the streaming service in the UK and Ireland.

As an extra special bonus, Paramount+ has also included the never-aired-in-the-UK PILOT episode of Kenan & Kel! When Kenan & Kel originally aired in the U.K., Nickelodeon only aired the series from "The Tainting of the Screw," which served as the introduction to Kenan and Kel, to the series finale movie "Two Heads Are Better Than None."

And even if you haven't watched Kenan & Kel since the '90s, the pilot episode is a must watch!

In the pilot episode, Kenan is trying to raise money to buy a car, and is offered one for just $400. After learning they have in fact bought a stolen car, Kenan and Kel co-operate with the police in bringing the car thief to justice in return for being let off the hook.

Although the Pilot episode is very much like the rest of the series, with the core cast still playing their respective roles and sets mostly the same, as well as the iconic theme song sung by the late, great Coolio being intact, there are a few notable differences: the episode isn't as polished as other episodes, and seems a bit choppy at times, and in one scene, a camera can be spotted as another pans round, although this may be because this episode was made for 4x3 TV screens and watching it on a 16x9 device has made the edges which are usually hidden visible. The end credits are also shorter, with the addition of the vanity card of show creator Kim Bass, Bass Entertainment.

Another noticeable change in the pilot is that Kel seems a bit smarter than he does in the series, and he doesn't seem to love Orange Soda as much. He can be seen drinking a bottle of it at Rigby's, but there's no "who loves orange soda?" lead up.

Unfortunately, there is still one remaining unaired Kenan & Kel episode missing. Due to its content, the episode "Girl-Watchers" was completely banned in the U.K.
