In the first episode of the 7th Season of Nickelodeon’s comedy show All That, Frankie Muniz guest starred. In fact, he did more than that, because he introduced a completely new cast to the audience. This was set up as a comedy skit, where Frankie was supposed to pick some random teenagers for the show, since none of them had been booked. He then proceeds to extract them from various weird places. The cast was notable for including MITM regular Kyle Sullivan (playing Dabney Hooper, Kyle also co-starred with Justin Berfield in the movie Max Keeble’s Big Move), and MITM guest star Lisa Foiles, who appeared in episode 4×10 If Boys Were Girls. This was filmed about a year after their appearance on All That, however. This All That episode first aired on January 19, 2002.

Frankie appeared with Kyle and Lisa in the manic sketch Sugar and Coffee. The stuff is apparently so addictive, that Kyle turns out to fulfil Dabney’s secret dreams about Malcolm, so to speak! This has to be seen to be believed! Did Frankie do those cartwheels and backflips himself? I didn’t know he was so agile! The cast also includes newcomers Chelsea Brummet, Jack DeSena, Bryan Hearne, Shane Lyons and Giovonnie Samuels.
