"Who loves orange soda? Kel loves orange soda."

He certainly did. We all remember Kel Mitchell from the late '90s Nickelodeon sitcom "Kenan & Kel." But while co-star Kenan Thompson's goofball status catapulted him onto the "SNL" main stage, Mitchell didn't fare quite as well post orange-soda antics, when "Kenan & Kel" wrapped in 2000.

Still, since his Nickelodeon and "Good Burger" days, Thompson has gone on to voice a character on the children's series "Clifford the Big Red Dog," appear in Kanye West's music video "All Falls Down" and land his current gig on Nicktoons' animated series "Wild Grinders."

Check out Kel Mitchell then and now below:
