A Brief History of ‘Good Burger’
The classic ’90s sketch made its debut on All That back in 1994, revolving around the fast-food joint known as Good Burger and its endearingly oblivious cashier, Ed, portrayed by Mitchell throughout Seasons 1 to 5. This beloved sketch ultimately inspired the worldwide release of the feature film Good Burger on July 25, 1997, courtesy of Paramount Pictures.
The expanded feature focused on the character of Dexter Reed (Thompson), a high school student who accidentally crashes his mother’s car into the car of his teacher. To pay for the repairs, Dexter takes a job at Good Burger. He ends up working alongside Ed and becomes entangled in the restaurant’s eccentric and chaotic nonsense.
The central conflict in the movie arises when a rival fast-food chain, Mondo Burger, opens nearby. Mondo Burger is run by the arrogant and conniving Kurt (played by Jan Schweiterman), who is determined to put Good Burger out of business. Dexter and Ed must come up with a plan to save Good Burger from its impending doom while navigating a series of comical, absurd and chaotic situations. It was a popular film among children and teenagers in the late 1990s and has since gained a cult following.
In the 2019 revival series of All That, Mitchell made a triumphant return, reprising his role as Ed. In this iteration, Ed had climbed the ranks, becoming the seasoned manager of Good Burger after dedicating two decades to the establishment.
Good Burger 2 premieres Wednesday, November 22, exclusively on Paramount+ in the United States and Canada.
