Trivia: Kenan & Kel

  • Acting for Two: In "Present Tense", Kenan and Kel also played Roger's great-aunts.
  • The Danza - Kenan and Kel themselves.
  • Hey, It's That Guy! - Kyra, Kenan's sister, was played by Vanessa Baden—who also played Vanessa on Nick Jr.'s Gullah Gullah Island.
    • Chris was played by Dan Frischman from the series Head of the Class (remember fellow Head Of the Class alumnus Brian Robbins was a co-creator while another cast member of that series, Dan Schneider, was a frequent producer).
    • Schneider himself appears in "Baggin' Saggin' Kel."
    • Kenan's dad lived through a Zombie Apocalypse back in the 70s.
    • In one episode, one of Kenan and Kel's school friends is played by Josh Server.
    • Nick Cannon (who was a cast member on the newer episodes of All That) appeared in a couple episodes and was credited for warming up the audience in the end credits.
    • Kenan later went on to be in Saturday Night Live - kind of amusing given that in this show, he was the Straight man to Kel's Funny Man. (However, anyone who has seen All That can tell that Kenan could be funny too.)
  • Missing Episode: While the series has finally gotten DVD releases on Amazon, they are "Best Of Seasons" sets and are missing multiple episodes.
    • Season 1 is missing three episodes: In the Line of Kenan, Baggin' Saggin' Kel, and Safe & Sorry. Baggin' Saggin Kel utilizes the LL Cool J song, Mama Said Knock You Out, so the episode's omission is most likely a result of music licensing issues, as it was also skipped on The '90s Are All That, Amazon Instant Video and Vudu. The reasons for In the Line of Kenan and Safe & Sorry being omitted are more of a mystery, because those two episodes did at least air on TeenNick.
    • Season 2 is unaffected. Every episode of the season was included in the set.
    • Season 3 is missing the following episodes: The Chicago Witch Trials, Freezer Burned, and Who Loves Who-ooh?. In each case it appears to be related to guest star royalties (Linda Cardellini, Dr. Joyce Brothers, and Tamia respectively), as well as more music licensing issues with Tamia’s music. The Chicago Witch Trials and Freezer Burned aired on TeenNick, but not Who Loves Who-ooh?. Strangely, most of the Season 3 episodes included are Out of Order.
    • Season 4 seems to also be unaffected, with every episode listed.
    • Every episode is available online, but the DVD sets and downloads are the only legal means to get the show.
