Last week, millions of twenty-somethings took a time machine back to the 1990s when Nickelodeon aired old episodes of their classic shows All That, Clarissa Explains It All, Kenan & Kel and Doug. Most excited for the throwback is Kenan Thompson, who starred in both All That and Kenan & Kel. He tells MTV News, "I thought it was crazy. It was very complimentary and felt really nice of them to do that, and it's all fan requested and then that made it even better."

The SNL actor is surprised how well the classic shows hold up against the racier series of today. "It's crazy that it's working because it's like 10-year-old material that's holding up against these shows."

While fans are getting a nostalgia kick from the re-airings, for Kenan, watching them brings up special memories. "It was like a very, very cherished moment in life. It's funny to see everyone all grown up now," he added. "It's crazy. It's funny to watch life progress and then to be thrown back into the mid-'90s, it's cool."
