Whatever happened to all the Nickelodeon
stars of our childhood? Oh No They Didn't
has answers: They track down Michael C. "Mike" Maronna
(Big Pete on The Adventures of Pete n Pete
), Michael Bower
(Eddie "Donkeylips" Gelfen on Salute Your Shorts
) and Jason Zimbler
(Ferguson W. Darling on Clarissa Explains It All
), and let us know what they're doing now. According to the blog:
Michael C. "Mike" Maronna (pictured above) appeared in a 2010 short film called On Edge but day-to-day
he makes his pot money as a film electrician. He was responsible for
lighting the fried chicken in Precious and the haggard corpses in
classic horror film Sex and the City. Right now he is working on a Noah
Baumbach film, being a grody ass hipster he must be pretty stoked about
THEN: Michael Bower was an American actor known for his role as Eddie
"Donkeylips" Gelfen on the television program Salute Your Shorts, which
was aired from 1991 to 1992 on Nickelodeon.
NOW: Bower was a
member of Scientology but has recently converted to Taoism, likely due
to a fear of being sexually assaulted by either Tom Cruise or Kirstie
Alley. Recently, he was a rapper, that probably didn't go too well. He
also provided the voice and prostitute beating sounds of "Eugene Reaper"
in Grand Theft Auto IV.
