All That's first season ran on April 16, 1994 as a special preview, but officially ran from December 24, 1994 to April 1, 1995. The first season began in 1994-1995 with the pilot and 14 episodes.
After You Can't Do That On Television ended production in 1990, Nickelodeon had interest in creating another sketch comedy series for the network. The network debuted another sketch show called Roundhouse in 1992. After the shows debut Nickelodeon asked Mike Tollin and Brian Robbins to create a new show. The network wanted a show that was similar to Saturday Night Live, but for kids. Joe Davola, Kevin Kopelow, Dan Schneider and Heath Seifert were brought on as producers and were a major part of the writing force for the show.
Producers went on a search to finds kids to join the cast after the network greenlit the show. Angelique Bates, Lori Beth Denberg, Katrina Johnson, Kel Mitchell, Alisa Reyes, Josh Server, and Kenan Thompson were hired. Bates got a call from her agent about the show in late 1992. She auditioned by doing an impression of Steve Urkel, which she would get to do various times on the show. Denberg was discovered by producers at a drama competition; she was invited to audition and got the gig. Johnson, Mitchell, Reyes, Server, and Thompson went through a series of auditions to get on the show.
In 1994, Nickelodeon canceled Roundhouse and aired the All That pilot on April 16 of the same year. The show featured producer Kevin Kopelow as the stage manager which the cast members do something bad to him constantly, exclusively during the cold opens. The first season was broadcast from Orlando, Florida. The show's cold openings featured the cast in a green room and their departure from the room. To resemble Saturday Night Live, producers added the segment Vital Information which would be featured in every episode just like SNL's Weekend Update segment. Producers bumped Denberg up to anchor the segment.
The theme song for All That was performed by TLC. The intro features the entire cast in an alleyway. They are playing games and playing with a sheet with the All That logo on it. The cast jumps on unseen trampolines, one of which has everyone in front of the alleyway, and another featuring all cast members except Denberg and Thompson spinning around in a white void background. The intro starts off with the announcer saying "Not quite live, but ready for prime time. Get ready, get set, it's All That!" After that the song begins. It starts off with a sign of the word "Oh". The sign is held by Johnson. Then two people are shown playing racket ball in the alleyway. Then the cast is shown, their names are in bright red. Their first and last names are separated by a picture of the All That logo. The musical guest is shown after Thompson, the intro ends with a pan shot of the entire cast with the names of the producers flashing by.
The pilot was filmed on January 17, 1994, with the rest of the season being filmed from September to December 1994.
For reasons unknown, Season 1 was not aired on The '90s Are All That or its successors. Instead, the block began with Season 2, and the iTunes release has begun with Season 2 as well. Prior to that, neither of the first two seasons aired when The N reran the series in 2008, possibly due to music rights involved with the musical guests expiring.
