It'S A Total Laughfest With Over An Hour Of Skits, Commercialparodies & Audience Participation With Nickelodeon'S Residentcomedienne Extraordinaire, Amanda Bynes. An Lurking Backstageis Amanda'S Number One Fan, Penelope Taynt, In Her Never-Endingquest To Meet Her Idol, If You Please.
This Nickelodeon sketch comedy series hosted by young comedienne Amanda Bynes is as fresh today as during its 1999-2000 run with still-timely jabs at reality shows, teen dramas, and fan obsession. Byne and her young castmates manage to have a goofily good time at no one's expense. In these two 22-minute episodes (#214 and #217), the cast manages to skewer hillbillies and (unidentifiable) immigrants without offending, probably because the other characters get theirs, as well, including a hapless Danny Bonaduce as an outraged video store customer. JudgeTrudy and her bailiff survive a reality-show challenge in the middle of an Oklahoman parking lot, Mr. Gullible tries to be a good sport during a school fire drill, and Penelope Taint, Amanda's no. 1 fan, is able to prove her case. This innuendo-free comedy is appropriate for all ages, but will be most understood by ages 7 and older. --Kimberly Heinrichs
