As the host of Double Dare 2000, Jason Harris watches other people do messy and difficult stunts. When he visited our offices on a chilly morning, we thought it was time for Jason to get a taste of his own medicine. (Actually, it was a taste of whipped cream topped with cherries.) We locked his coat in an office-and hid the key in one of 36 bowls of whipped cream arranged to form the number 2000 (above). His challenge: to find the key without using his hands.
On the show 100 Deeds for Eddie McDowd, a man called The Drifter puts a curse on Eddie McDowd and turns him into a dog. We got Seth Green, the voice behind the pooch, to sit, stay, and talk to us.
Bonus: Nickelodeon Magazine's March 2000 calendar, featuring frozen food facts to celebrate the birthday of Clarence Birdseye; Captain Underpants and the Perilous Plot of Professor Poopypants book advertisement.
