The Cold War is the eighth episode of the first season of Kenan & Kel which was first broadcast on November 2, 1996.


The episode starts with Kenan using a cantaloupe as a bowling ball and Kel comes with a cold, much to Chris' dismay. Kenan is too lazy to make dinner, so Kyra makes some "macaroni and cheese", which is just pork fat with mustard all over it, which Kel actually doesn't mind. Kel comes over to the house since nobody wanted him at his house because of his illness. When Kenan can't sleep because of Kel, he decides to make him some medicine to help him. This actually works, but they soon forget the recipe and give it to their father to work since he got sick too. They soon bring the medicine to Chris, who is also sick, but he soon falls asleep and Kenan detects that they didn't put the right stuff in it. Because of this, Kenan starts to figure out that his father's in danger since he's an air traffic controller, so they run to the Chicago O'Hare International Airport to stop him before he drinks it. However, he has drinken it already. Roger then falls asleep, and now Kenan and Kel have to land a plane themselves, but they don't know what to do. With that, they tell the pilot (who has two tickets to see a Chicago Bulls game) to jump with a parachute and the plane flies to Nebraska with his passenger instead.


The ingredients for Kenan's cold medicine are:

  • Fried chicken
  • Cough drops
  • Eggs
  • Sardines
  • Hot sauce
  • Marshmallows
  • Lebanese mustard
  • Pickle juice
  • Orange soda
