Salute Your Shorts

Show Summary

Salute Your Shorts is about a group of kids at summer camp. The camp is run by the heard-but-never-seen Dr. Kahn. The kids spend their time trying to harass the camp counselor, Kevin "Ug" Lee. Nickelodeon continued to show re-runs of Salute Your Shorts for several years after its cancellation. It was taken off the air sometime around 1998. The Nick GaS channel reran the series during the summer of 2003 as part of their "Camp '03" programming block.

    • Grew up watching.

      Loved this show.
    • Cool!

      I bet anyone my age who had cable television can remember the greatness of good old Nickelodeon. Salute Your Shorts was absolutely my favorite show! The plots were easy to understand and the characters were (mostly) likable. Whenever I see someone watching Nickelodeon all I can think of is the hours I spent watching the greatest television. I suggest that Nickelodeon brings back all the shows from my childhood: Salute Your Shorts, Clarissa Explains It All, The Secret World of Alex Mack, Rocko's Modern Life, Are You Afraid of the Dark?, The Adventures of Pete and Pete, Double Dare with Marc Summers, Legends of the Hidden Temple, Guts, the old Rugrats(before they grew up and before they went to Paris), and Doug. It seems like yesterday when i heard the Patti Mayonnaise music, got extremely scared from a television show, watched Sam climb into Clarissa's window by climbing a ladder and Alex Mack turn into this liquid mercury stuff, went through the dryer at the laundromat to find Spunky, got extremely slimy with someone else's family, talked to some big rock, used a screwdriver to get out of a playpen, climbed a huge mountain, and went to summer camp. I guess those shows are considered classics now and I really hope that kids who grew up with these shows never forget about them.moreless
    • The theme song is still in my head

      The theme song really is still in my head, though I can't remember all the words. My favorite episode was when they had capture the flag with water balloons. There was another good one where they sneaked out for fast food. I can't remember all the group dynamics or pick a favorite chatacter, though.
    • Great Show!

      Salute Your Shorts was a great show that should have lasted for years, instead of 26 episodes. I have no idea why Nick would canceled a show after two seasons, but keep showing reruns for 8 years. My only guess is because production couldn't be moved to Nickelodeon studios like the rest of it shows like Hey Dude so they canned it. Every episode was good, but it went down hill a little when Michael left and Ronnie came. Ug was so stupid I would have loved to be a camp with him in charge. You could have did whatever you wanted. Nick really should bring back reruns.moreless
    • Great show loved it

      This is probably one of my alltime favorite shows.its was the kind of show that even though it only lasted 1 seasona it was still great. Its the kinda of show that you know you have seen the same episodes a hundred times but you still love to watch them over and over again. I dont think alot of shows can do that but thats just me. Its too bad they axed it but sometimes you gotta do what ya gotta do. All in all great show and lets all remember the good times we had with it R.I.P. We hardly knew yemoreless
