Top 10 Nickelodeon Stars of the '90s

This is a list of what I believe are the best Nickelodeon stars of the 90's. This is not entirely based on opinion but also on the popularity of each individual's show, the amount of shows he or she was on, the amount of time spent on Nickelodeon, and the person's overall contribution to the channel.
The Top Ten
1 Kel Mitchell

To this day, 20- and 30-somethings find themselves quoting Kel's characters from "All That" and "Kenan and Kel." Whenever he acted goofy on camera, it led to hysterical laughter from children in the audience. The great popularity of his shows and his silly ways made him a Nickelodeon superstar.

2 Melissa Joan Hart Melissa Joan Hart is an American actress, director, producer, singer, fashion designer, and businesswoman. She is known for her roles in Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Melissa & Joey, and No Good Nick

Ask any girl who she looked up to on Nickelodeon back then, and most likely you will hear "Clarissa." "Clarissa Explains It All" was a fun, brightly colored, imaginative show that caused girls all over the country to wear fun, new styles and decorate their rooms with unique items.

The show was so popular that Melissa Joan Hart went on to very successful shows such as "Sabrina the Teenage Witch."

Melissa Joan Hart also appeared on Melissa & Joey (Disney), which was on ABC Family every Wednesday night.

3 Kenan Thompson Kenan Thompson is an American actor and comedian. He is known for his work as a cast member of NBC's Saturday Night Live.

From "All That" to "Kenan and Kel," Kenan was one of the funniest kids on television. He had previously appeared in other children's movies such as "Heavyweights" and "D2: The Mighty Ducks," making him well known to almost all kids of that time.

Kenan's time on Nickelodeon led to a great career filled with movies and his current gig, "Saturday Night Live."

4 Danny Tamberelli

To '90s kids, Danny Tamberelli was one of the most recognizable faces on television. If you don't know who he is, either you were not a kid in the 1990s or you did not have cable.

He was on two of the channel's most popular shows: "The Adventures of Pete & Pete" and "All That." He was also a regular panelist on the popular game show "Figure It Out." He did voice-over work for a few other Nickelodeon shows and guest-starred on shows such as "Space Cases."

His wardrobe, tattoo, and personality on "The Adventures of Pete & Pete" have become legendary in the world of '90s kids. A fun, energetic kid, he was a favorite to many Nickelodeon viewers. Even now, he says that he is recognized by strangers every single day. He should have been called Mr. Nickelodeon.

5 Amanda Bynes Amanda Laura Bynes is an American former actress. After appearing in commercials and in plays, Bynes rose to prominence as a child star in the late 1990s and early 2000s, first on the Nickelodeon series All That from 1996 to 2000, and then on her own show, The Amanda Show (1999-2002), becoming a teen... read more

Amanda's amazing career began on "All That" in the mid-'90s. Her cute, funny, and sometimes obnoxious characters caused many children to roll around in uproarious laughter. At the end of the '90s, she even went on to have her own show called "The Amanda Show."

6 Larisa Oleynik

Larisa was easy to relate to yet had superpowers in the show "The Secret World of Alex Mack." This made her an easy role model for kids who lived in everyday American society and wished they could be somehow different.

Her clothes were the prime example of how normal kids dressed in the '90s, and her problems were just like the problems normal kids faced every day. She also had guest appearances on other Nick shows such as "The Adventures of Pete & Pete," where she played a nurse who pumped creamed corn out of Little Pete's stomach. This added humor to her persona and made kids love her even more.

7 Lori Beth Denberg

Lori Beth added a serious approach to humor through her hilarious characters on "All That." She is most well known for her characters Miss Fingerly, The Loud Librarian, and as herself giving out 'Vital Information.' She is also known for being the panelist who was hardest to stump on "Figure It Out."

8 Josh Server

The longest-running member of the original "All That" cast, Josh was known for playing the dim-witted detective Dan, Earboy, and the boorish Phlegm. His outrageous physical comedy and talent for yelling loudly made him a Nickelodeon favorite.

9 Danny Cooksey

He also did his voice-over of Dave the Barbarian on Disney Channel along with his former voice-over friend, Frank Welker, as Dave's pet dragon, protecting his beloved princess and his family from the forces of evil. The show's creator, Doug Langdale, also worked on another cartoon, The Weekenders.

Danny's character Budnick was the bully we all loved to hate on "Salute Your Shorts." He was the source of many of the jokes and made kids think twice about whether or not they disliked all bullies.

10 David Lascher

As the girl-chasing ranch hand on "Hey Dude," David stole the show in many of his scenes. His conceited, light-hearted manner made him one of the most memorable characters on this much-loved Nick classic.
