I claim to be a child of the “christian 90′s”. So what kind of blogger would I be without a post about McGee and Me? It was just a matter of time really…
The New Adventures McGee and me!
In the Nick of Time (ep. 10) (1992)
Joe Dammann will always just be Nick to me. I remember watching the “New Adventures” for the first time, as a pre-teen, and wondering..”Oh no, is that what turning into a teenager looks like?!”
Thanks to McGee and me I truly feared God and puberty. Joe seems to be doing more behind the scene work, voice over, and smaller part stuff, but still in the biz.
Joe’s Facebook – maybe he will be your friend. I’m sure he won’t find it weird or anything.
Whit Hertford plays nerdy little Philip. He was always my favorite. Plus, I was a big Full House fan as a kid (don’t judge), so I knew him as ‘duck face’ as well. He’s a ‘unique’ looking fella, and a Mormon to boot. Well, occurding to the LDS website they claimed him as a LDS celebrity. I guess they define celebrity loosely. Heck, I guess I know who he is.
I hadn’t heard of him in years, then all of a sudden I was watching Glee (which I never watch), and the choreographer for the episode looked awfully familiar. Then I realized, Hey! That’s Whitby!
He’s using the internet like a madman, making videos (Funny or Die), being on late night, and having several websites full of funny stuff. Check out his tumblr.
Shaylisa Hurte starred as Renee, Nick’s only girl friend. She was okay I guess. I didn’t find her all that interesting, but her parents were divorced (shocking!).
Nowadays she can help you sell your house.
New Adventures McGee and me Intro
McGee and me – edited the way I want
Of all the Christian videos for kids, I found McGee and Me to be the least annoying, and more professionally done. I didn’t realize until now that they were produced by Focus on the Family. I can’t stand Focus on the Family, so it kinda sucks to know I actually enjoyed something they had a hand in.
McGee and Me had a bunch of awkward kids, that made even me seem cool at the time. There are a lot of Bible verses, and a moral lesson to learn in every video of course. They aren’t so bad, for a Christian kid series anyways.
And actually had some talented kid actors that went on to do other things.
