Dr. Kahns Camper of the Day – Friday

Donkeylips

Eddie “Donkeylips” Gelfen

This is Dr. Kahn, your camp leader, with the Camp Anawanna camper profile of the day. Every group of pre-teen misfits needs a fat kid who goes by a nickname that accentuates his fatness. Our resident chunker is Eddie “Donkeylips” Gelfen. In the grand tradition of Chunk, Fat Kid, Cartman, and Vern, Donkeylips is husky, sweaty, and constantly dreams of fatty foods. He is not above eating rock-hard, painted macaroni during arts and crafts. Despite his girth, he proved his worth during the camp’s game of capture the flag. In addition to being the token fattie, this is a man at the heart of a love triangle. He is torn between serving as Budnick’s sidekick and enforcer and being Sponge’s best friend. With Budnick, he is feared, but with Sponge, he can be himself. Despite this identity struggle, he remains honest, loyal, and smelly. Where would we be without a fat kid?

However, we have identified the Essential Seven Salute Your Shorts Moments.

The Great Salute Your Shorts Debate: Michael vs. Pinksy

michael_vs_pinsky

In Season One, the new camper was the blond, athletic Michael Stein. In Season Two, after Michael left camp due to a case of the chicken pox, viewers were introduced to the floppy-haired, smooth talkin’ Ronnie Pinsky. Budnick ran both of their shorts up the flagpole. However, this is the only similarity between the two characters. SYS fans are divided, placing the debate over Michael and Pinksy alongside arguments about Mike vs. Joel and Claudia Wells vs. Elisabeth Shue.

Salute Your Shorts FAQ

sys_singing

Some of you have never heard or even seen an episode of Salute Your Shorts. For those of you poor bastards who were deprived of this show, I have created a Salute Your Shorts FAQ:

What is Salute Your Shorts?
Salute Your Shorts is a early 90’s cable show that aired for two seasons on Nickelodeon. The cable channel began producing a number of good shows with kids as the stars. They were labeled “Nickcoms”

Was that the show with the two brothers named Pete?
No, that was the other good Nickcom called The Adventures of Pete and Pete. There was also Clarissa Explains it All, You Can’t Do That on Television and the most boring sitcom on the planet, Hey Dude!

Dr. Kahn’s Camper of the Day – Monday

camper_bobby_budnick

Bobby Budnick

This is Dr. Kahn, your camp leader, with the Camp Anawanna camper profile of the day. Today’s camper is our resident troublemaker—Robert “Bobby” Budnick. He is known for his carefully crafted mullet and his love of camouflage coats and Megadeth. Be weary of his schemes and his crazy stories about Zeke the Plumber. Budnick is an expert at feigning sick and never passes up an opportunity to run a new kid’s shorts up the flagpole, much to the chagrin of his arch nemesis, counselor Kevin Lee. However, he knows his limits. At one time, he thought Dina was the perfect girl, but, in the end, he could not let her take away his most prized possession: his long red hair. He was last seen being pushed aside in a video arcade by the T-1000 in Terminator 2.

Salute Your Shorts Week Begins!

Salute Your Shorts

Back in the early 90’s Nickelodeon started producing a number of television shows with kids as the main stars. Shows like Clarissa Explains It All, Pete & Pete, and Hey Dude! were all very successful, but in my eyes the best show was Salute Your Shorts! This week we are celebrating the show with a week long dedication to the cast and writers of the show. Starting today at noon (est) we will have part 1 of our exclusive interview with Trevor Eyster who portrayed Sponge.

Some of you have never seen the show. I’m not surprised. The show hasn’t been on television for years. For those of you who never saw the show here is a quick synopsis of it.
