The Big Ear of Corn is back! Interview with Dan Schneider

We sat down with “All That” master producer-writer-director Dan Schneider about the illusive and illustrious Big Ear of Corn!

US:  What made you decide to create the Big Ear of Corn?

DS:  Well, at some point when I was writing part of the pilot script for All That, I wanted to add some weird, random, silly element to the “cast.”  And for some reason I thought to myself, "Hmmm, a giant ear of corn would look pretty funny," so I wrote in the Big Ear of Corn.  

US:  Did you just plan to write it in for one episode, or did you know it was going to be a recurring thing?

DS:  I don’t remember exactly.  I probably didn’t know it would become a regular thing on the show – that happens a lot in television.  Sometimes, you think some element of the show will be a major thing, and then you change your mind and stop writing it in – it just goes away.  Other times, you think something’s going to be a one-time bit, but then it becomes a regular part of the show.  That’s what happened with the Big Ear of Corn.  It worked well – it was funny on camera.  So when I'd write new sketches – usually the show's cold opens – I'd keep writing it in, and it became a regular thing on All That.

US:  Can you tell me something else that was supposed to be a one-time bit, that turned into a regular thing?

DS:  You mean for All That?  Or for any show I’ve done?

US:  Let’s say any show.

DS:  Sure.  Gibby on iCarly.  That character was only written to be a guest star for one episode, but then Gibby became a major part of the show.

US:  No way.  How did that happen?

DS:  I just thought he [Noah Munck] was so funny.  His comedy timing – he just made us all laugh.  So, we kept writing him in more and more episodes.  And then finally we decided to make him a series regular character.  Maybe that should be my next spin-off: Gibby & The Big Ear of Corn.

Ella Anderson Shines in Mother's Day

Just like so many of you out there, we’re massive Ella Anderson fans. She’s super funny on set and an inspiration to watch on camera. This young lady has so much potential it’s hard to describe! Not only does Ella light up the Henry Danger set as Henry’s ferocious little sister, Piper, but she’s also a budding movie star! You may have seen her in the recent blockbuster comedy The Boss starring the always-hilarious Melissa McCarthy. Ella plays Rachel, the daughter of Claire, played by Kristen Bell. At just 10 years old, you might think Ella would feel a little nervous to act around major stars like Melissa, Kristen and Peter Dinklage, but Ella certainly held her own!

 The Boss Trailer

Ella's latest project is Mother’s Day, a heart-warming who's who of Hollywood heavyweights. Ella features as Jason’s Sudeikis’ daughter Vicky, alongside Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson, Julia Roberts and Timothy Olyphant. Ella was thrilled to be directed by the legendary Garry Marshall, and we're so, so proud of Ella and her achievements. We can’t wait to see the movie this weekend! Check out the trailer below and get excited for more Ella!!! We know that this is just another incredible mark in Ella’s career, and her future is as bright as she is.

Hollywood’s Mad for Maddie Shipman: Go See Geezer in Theaters!

We’re so proud of Maddie Shipman and her incredible work! This young star is a joy to watch on screen and even more of a joy to work with. From her hilarious performances in Game Shakers to her stellar voice work in The Peanuts Movie and the upcoming Angry Birds Movie, Maddie is talented well beyond her years!
This Spring, Maddie’s fans were stoked to watch her walk Tribeca Film Festival’s red carpet for her upcoming film Geezer, a comedy starring Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong.

Maddie was joined on the red carpet by Billie Joe, Selma and the film’s director Lee Kirk.  

Geezer focuses on Perry (Armstrong), a former punk-rock star who’s living a happy and calm life in the suburbs. Things get shaken up for Perry on his 40th Birthday, when he tries to relive the wild ways of his youth and his crazy punk-rock past.

Maddie plays Armstrong’s daughter, Salome, and the cast is rounded out by other amazing talents like Selma Blair, Judy Greer and Chris Messina among many others.

This Season on Game Shakers

Game Shakers—the show about 2 kids who start a multi-million dollar game company in Brooklyn. But what is it REALLY about? Their goofy friend Hudson? Their business partner and rap superstar Double G? His son, Triple G? Yes, yes, and yes, but WHAT is this show REALLY about?!

Is it about the ridiculous adventures they have? The games they make? The lessons they learn along the way?

MAYBE! Maybe not. I want to tell you what this show is REALLY about, and I felt the best way to do that is through pictures. I hope these give you a better sense of the world we’ve created for Game Shakers :) 

I hope these have answered all your questions, and I can’t WAIT for you to see Game Shakers, coming to Nickelodeon THIS Saturday, September 12th at 8:30 PM, right after Henry Danger!!!!

#AskDanWarp: Why all the food jokes?

Haha... well, I wouldn't say that most of my humor is related to food, but I do write a lot of food jokes.  There are a couple of reasons for this, I guess.  First, it's universal – everyone loves some kinds of food.  Second, enjoying food is something we all do, no matter who we are or where we come from.  So, when the writers and I reference food in funny ways, lots of people understand and laugh along.  

A great example of this is when I created spaghetti tacos on iCarly.  Spencer was making dinner for the kids, and as I was writing the scene I thought to myself, "Spencer is a super creative, wacky kind of guy – he's not going to make something normal or boring."  And I thought it would be cool and interesting if he had the idea to put spaghetti in tacos.  

At the time, it was just a little throw-away joke in one iCarly episode.  But the audience loved it, and the idea of spaghetti tacos caught on with lots of people.  To this day, 5 or 6 years after that episode aired, I still get frequent comments and photos from fans about how they made spaghetti tacos at home.  In fact, it became such a national fad, the New York Times wrote an article about spaghetti tacos, which you can read here:
