- 5 Seasons
The Amanda Show is a television show for children that aired in 1999. The show was played on Nickelodeon and the star of the show was Amanda Bynes. The show also featured other actors who became much more famous after the show. Some of these featured actors and actresses were Drake Bell, Nancy Sullivan, John Kassir, Raquel Lee, and Josh Peck. The basis of the Amanda Show was a comedy sketch show that was geared toward a younger audience. The show had several recurring sketches that were loved among children all across the United States. The sketch that was generally first on every show was a sketch of a fake commercial for a comedic product. Some of these featured products on these fake commercials were Popper Pants (pants that pop popcorn), Meatloaf Crunch (a meatloaf flavored breakfast cereal), and Homework Hut (a homework service that kids can use to get out of doing their own homework). Next on the list of recurring sketches is the Judge Trudy sketch. This sketch consisted of Amanda Bynes posing as a judge and hearing cases of children against adults. The children's positions were always wildly unreasonable and would usually not even be brought to court. The audience of the court would always throw garbage at the grownups at some point during the hearing. At the end of the hearing, Judge Trudy would always rule in favor of the child and would yell "bring in the dancing lobsters" at the end of each Judge Trudy sketch. Another recurring sketch that was featured on the Amanda Show was "Moody's Point". This sketch was a comedy over dramatic rendition of a nineties sitcom much like Dawson's Creek or any similar show. It featured Amanda Bynes as Moody, who was a very moody teenager. She lost her mother in a hot air balloon accident. The show follows her through normal teenage drama which she acts over dramatically toward. Some of these situations are boyfriend troubles, friend problems, and tough school situations.
