Classic Nickelodeon Skits That Remind Us Why We Love Amanda Bynes


Amanda Bynestough times reached a frightening climax last week. The gifted comedic actress and former fashion student was admitted to the Pasadena hospital on October 10 and placed in a 5150 psychiatric hold for 72 hours. Bynes was also put in a 5150 hold in 2013 after a string of similar erratic events. We hope she gets the help she needs. Frankly, the comedy world needs her again, as evidenced by her legendary Nickelodeon skits from All That and The Amanda Show.

Bynes knows how to deliver a punchline. Major qualities that separate Bynes from the pack of squeaky-clean tweens she grew up with are her natural camera presence, wicked sense of humor, and penchant for hitting us where it tickles: the funny bone. From her ensemble role on All That to headlining (where she rightfully should be) run on The Amanda Show at age 13, Bynes’ zeal for making us laugh — with good material and at such a young age — is unprecedented.

While Bynes is focusing on getting on the right track, let’s keep it positive. We’ve assembled 10 of her greatest Nickelodeon moments for your viewing pleasure. Grab a hold of your gut, click through these videos, and remember why you fell in love with Bynes in the first place: She is one talented girl.
