Check it, check it, check it, this is ALL THAT! A staple for the Nick Generation and part of what made Saturday night SNICK must-see TV, ALL THAT was not your parents’ SNL.

And it was filled with a starting lineup that featured people who would go on to become paparazzi fodder, sketch comedy mainstays, and, well, a whole lot of, “Oh yeah, I remember them! They were on ALL THAT and…nothing else!”
