1993: Amanda makes her first television commercial, for Nestle Buncha Crunch.

Summer 1993: Rick Bynes enrolls his daughter Amanda in a comedy camp where she begins to perfect her laughmaking style.

1995: Distinguishes herself in Ventura County theater with performances as Scout in "To Kill a Mockingbird", Mary in "The Secret Garden", and as one of the von Trapp kids in "The Sound of Music".

Summer 1996: While visiting the Laugh Factory in Los Angeles, "All That" producer and former "Head of the Class" star Brian Robbins sees Amanda Bynes doing a standup routine and getting laughs. Within months, the young girl is signed to begin appearing on Nickelodeon's "All That", a series Robbins produces in association with his old "Head of the Class" buddy, Dan Schneider.

andleon.jpg (33868 bytes)November 16, 1996: Amid large fanfare, Amanda Bynes is introduced on "All That". With her very first episode, her comic sensibility is forged as the sweet little girl who has the capability to shock you. Within three episodes, the ten-year-old begins two characterizations that become show favorites: Ashley, a less-than-sensitive advice columnist, and Captain Tantrum, leader of the crew on the USS Spaceship. Her "All That" character portfolio bulges before her participation in the series ends, including characters such as the one and only Lucille Ball, "What-Everrrr!" star Gina, strange little girl Megan Marples, new-age artiste Sky and teen sensation Jiffy Springs.

February 17, 1997: A fan posts a message to alt.tv.nickelodeon asking where to find pictures of Amanda Bynes. It's the first acknowledgement of Amanda by a fan on the Internet.

115-think.jpg (28223 bytes)Late March, 1997: "So if you wanna guess along with the panel, cover your ears and close your eyes." Nickelodeon tapes its first episodes of a new panel show for kids called "Figure It Out". By the sixth episode, Amanda Bynes becomes more or less a regular panelist on the show. The show is an instant smash and gives Amanda a new fan base. The series was the first time the real Amanda was seen by the public, and the double exposure gives her fans a different view of her -- away from the scripts and costumes of "All That".

April 19, 1997: Amanda Bynes makes her first appearance as a presenter on Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards.

July 7, 1997: "Figure It Out" debuts on Nickelodeon. As is the case with most of their shows, they show one of the strongest early efforts first: Episode #109, which was Amanda Bynes' fourth episode. She shared panelist duties with Danny Tamberelli, Lori Beth Denberg and Moira Quirk.

October 29, 1997: Eleven-year-old Amanda is nominated for a CableACE award for her work on “All That”. One of Amanda's comedy heroes, Tracey Ullman, is nominated, but it's Sandra Oh (Rita on "Arli$$") who takes home the Ace. This was the final CableACE ceremony.

The site is a wonderful archive of photos and multimedia centered around the show.

October 16, 1999: "The Amanda Show" makes its debut on Nickelodeon, making 13-year-old Amanda Bynes the youngest person to host a weekly network comedy-variety show. Introduced are long-running characters Penelope Taynt, Judge Trudy, and The Klutzes. Taynt, an obsessed fan, becomes the show's calling card character, appearing every week in her never-ending quest to meet Amanda. Throughout the season, more characters are added, such as Babs Wrestleberg, Blini Blokey of Blockblister Video, Lulamae the Hillbilly, and Doreen the Dooper Girl. Amanda's crew assembles a supporting cast with teens Drake Bell (“The Jack Bull”) and Raquel Lee (from Nike WNBA commercials), and adults Nancy Sullivan (Game Show Network) and John Kassir ("Tales from the Crypt"). Musical artists LFO and Vitamin C appear, and Andrew Keegan makes a memorable cameo appearance.

October 2000: Amanda Bynes tapes the intro for an episode of the Noggin series "A Walk In Your Shoes" where a Jewish girl and a Catholic girl trade places. The show also features “Amanda” regular Drake Bell providing his insights. The episode is cut down to a half hour in 2002, eliminating Amanda's appearance.

October 2000: Rumpus.com, a purveyor of online cartoons, debuts a new feature ‘toon called "The Day I Saved America", in which Amanda lends her voice to a young girl who helps George Washington become the first President of the United States.

She gets it from girlfriends Brie and Misty, and potential beaux Spaulding and Sternum. Other new wrinkles are spoofs of "The Sopranos" and "Survivor", and "Amanda's Jacuzzi", where Amanda interviews famous historical figures while seated in a jacuzzi. Handpainted tops and blue jeans give way to a more glamorous onstage wardrobe, full of beautiful party dresses, halters and hip huggers. Raquel Lee and John Kassir are gone, and Josh Peck (“Snow Day") is introduced as a regular during the season.

September 26, 2001: Amanda Bynes appears on the hour-long season premiere of "The Drew Carey Show". The show, promoted as a "back to school" special, features Amanda in four different sketches, but as nothing more than a featured player.

October 3, 2001: Variety reports that a new sitcom starring Amanda Bynes is being developed by the WB Network for possible placement on the 2002-2003 schedule.

The film makes $11.7 million in its first weekend, finishing second to "Collateral Damage", and eventually outgrosses both of its weekend competitors, "Damage" and "Rollerball". The film winds up grossing $47,811,275 in its nine-week run, a very nice surprise windfall for Universal, who only spent $15,000,000 making the film.

Site FAQ
Are you Amanda Bynes? Do you know Amanda Bynes? Have you met her?
I'm not that lucky or talented...many people wander into this site thinking Amanda is lurking behind the curtain, or that I am Amanda Bynes, but that is simply not the case. This site is an unofficial site, not officially affiliated with Amanda Bynes or sanctioned by any of her networks,  nor do I know Amanda Bynes. But Amanda's official site and this site's predecessor have collaborated on a few projects such as galleries for "Slime Time Live" and KCA 2002.
     As far as knowing Amanda Bynes personally, this may come as a shock to you...we have never met. Her parents don't even send me cookies. She just happens to be the most talented person I have ever come across in my life. As well as being one of the most unaffected superstars in the world today. At age 17. Go figure.

What's Amanda's real e-mail address? ICQ handle? home address?
Right now the best way to e-mail Amanda Bynes is to go through thewb.com. Put the name AMANDA BYNES in the subject line, and the WB recommends you keep your e-mails short and polite. I do not have access to any of Amanda's personal e-mail addresses, ICQ handles, or any of that. Those are for the people in Amanda's private world, not for her fans to invade it. As stated on the front page, I respect and honor Amanda's privacy. Even if I knew any of this, I would not divulge it.

How tall is Amanda?
You'd be surprised how many people ask me this one. Amanda is five foot eight.

Are there going to be any more episodes of "The Amanda Show"?
No. Amanda simply felt like moving on after two blazing production seasons of TAS. The United States, Canada, Australia, and the UK have now played all 41 available episodes of the series.

Does Amanda have a boyfriend, and if so, who?
Amanda has been going steady with "Amanda Show" costar Taran Killam since the spring of 2001.

Can you send me spare pictures?
It's tough for me to fulfill all requests for pictures since I use so many on the site and I have such a large reserve of alternate images.

When will "What I Like About You" be on in my home country?
We are hopeful that "What I Like About You" will get aired in England, Australia, and other countries that do not currently air it. When we get some indication that it will air overseas, we will let you know. "WILAY" airs in the US, Canada (on YTV) and Latin America (the Warner Channel)..


How can I see a taping of "What I Like About You" in person?
If you live in or plan to visit the Los Angeles area, you can see the show live! The show tapes at the Warner Brothers Studios, 4210 West Olive Avenue, Burbank, CA, 91505. 
Production will resume in August if the show is picked up for year two.
Tickets are available online at Audiences Unlimited. You can also write the WB studios if you're out of town but are visiting soon. 

Where does Robair live?
Given the global reach of this site, it's a fair question, really. I live in the United States, in the state of New Jersey, at the fabulous Jersey Shore. Have all my life.

How do you know so much about Amanda?
You just have to absorb the material you're given. Lots of stuff on the Internet helps, and I have many people helping me out with leads and things. It all comes together to make the site one of the most complete and updated Amanda sites anywhere. I'm especially proud of the fact that ever since late last summer, all the important news about Amanda Bynes has appeared first on this site.
