In a move that’s basically made our inner nostalgic fangirls freak the f—k out, Nickelodeon has acquired the rights to the twins’ library of movies and TV shows from the ‘90s and early ‘00s. That includes the shows “So Little Time,” “The Adventures of Mary-Kate & Ashley,” “You’re Invited to Mary-Kate & Ashley’s,” and the animated series “Mary-Kate and Ashley in Action!”
The network also snatched up the movies “Our Lips Are Sealed,” “Winning London,” “Holiday in the Sun,” “Mary-Kate & Ashley’s Fashion Forward,” “When in Rome,” “Getting There: Sweet 16 and Licensed to Drive,” and “The Challenge.” Oh, and then there’s the music specials “Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen: Our First Video” and “Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen: Our Music Video.”
So, yeah, get ready to never leave your house again as you marathon yourself into Olsen twin euphoria.
Nickelodeon will air the entire catalog of movies and shows over the course of the year. First up is the 2001 series “So Little Time,” in which MK&A starred as Riley and Chloe, respectively. The series was sadly short-lived, but all 26 episodes were packed with unforgettable antics as the twins navigated life in Malibu High School, dealt with their crazy parents’ split, and got tangled up in tons of boy drama.
Here are 11 of the show's best moments we can’t wait to revisit.
First thing’s first: the catchy AF opening credits song.
“I’M NOT MAKING PLANS FOR TOMORROW.” Neither are we, because we’ll be binge-watching this show every single day it’s on.
The juicy boy talk.Tumblr
Riley and Chloe had boys on the brain all day, every day. We lived for moments like this, when they painstakingly dissected a kiss (yes, they were discussing a kiss here so you can get your head out of the gutter). Riley’s perfect response to Chloe’s question, by the way, was that she had just put on lip gloss so there was “a liiiiittle slippage.”
And the hit-you-right-in-the-feels boy talk.Tumblr
The girls taught us EVERYTHING we ever needed to know about relationships and crushes. This show is basically a Boys 101 crash course, and we could use some brain refreshing.
The trendy early ‘00s fashion.Tumblr
Spaghetti straps! Chunky sandals! Chokers! BANDANAS!
The whipped cream fight and chocolate sauce slide.Tumblr
Admit it: you totally tried to recreate this infamous scene once upon a time (and probably got grounded for it).
All the girly-girl beautifying.Tumblr
“So Little Time” aired right around the time the twins gifted us with their iconic beauty and makeup collection (remember the tagline? “Mary-Kate and Ashley: Real fashion for real girls”).
That time they flaunted their *tough* side.Tumblr
In typical sitcom fashion, trying to be “bad” blew up in their face, but if we’re being honest, they kind of pull this look off.
The crush of our dreams.Tumblr
We were psyched when the twins’ former “Holiday in the Sun” costar Ben Easter showed up as Lennon, Chloe’s hot crush. Lennon had it all: shaggy locks, an artsy edge, a name that probably isn't real, and an affinity for thick rope necklaces.
Their hilarious living room dance party.Tumblr
Don’t pretend you didn’t own a pair of PJs that looked exactly like theirs and rocked them at slumber parties on the regular.
Larry and Riley relationship drama.Tumblr
Confession: we’ll ALWAYS ship these two (sorry, Cammie), even though Riley sometimes strung poor Larry along and denied her feelings for him.
Riley and Chloe’s sassy housekeeper, Manuelo, was one of the most memorable characters on the show. Sadly, the actor who played him, Taylor Negron, passed away in January, but re-watching the show will give us an opportunity to fondly remember Manuelo and his signature catchphrase, “I don’t hate it!”
Nickelodeon will start airing "So Little Time" on Monday, April 27, with episodes playing every weekday night at 7:30 PM.
