I've always wondered why it ended and now I know. Strange because I never remember the show fifteen although Welcome Freshman is vaguely familiar.
I know this is an old post but u are so right, this show was so funny.. I remember my lil brother watching the show andi would watch with him.. I thought Ug was so cute and funny..

Well besides the reason of the cancellation of Nick shows, hate to state the obvious they don't know good shows when they see them. =)

I did notice Salute your Shorts location was definately not an indoor shows. I really liked the show, although I was born in 1990 they showed the show for many years because it was on when I was about four and I would watch it. I vividly remember it - they must have not filmed all the episodes in a row. I bet if I saw right now today - Welcome Freshmen or Fifteen I would remember them -but it's not ringing any bells to me right now.

Even so, Nick usually does have issues when it comes to good quality television. They always were that way and they probably will always be.

It was cancelled because Nick got the new studios at Universal(which are no longer there) and didn't want to pay the money to have shows that are filmed elsewhere.

Fifteen was so annoying. I watched it, when nothing else was on. I think on Sundays......

In the 1980s, many Nickelodeon shows were filmed in New York City and a few were filmed in Canada as the network had no official production home until the 1990's. Many former NICK actors have always said the same thing. "Kids like repetition and familiarity so you can forever rerun shows hence most only lasting 26-60 episodes. You Can't Do That On Television was running out of steam and becoming increasingly dated by the end of its run in 1990 so NICK pulled the plug and started searching for a new comedy series which is how ended up with Roundhouse and All That. All That was the first show to have a ton of episodes, I think YCDTOTV had close to 100 but it took them 11 years (1979-1990) with most episodes being filmed from 1979-1986 and a handful in the last years.

Salute Your Shorts was a great summer filler and the problem looking it as an adult, you really couldn't make but so many episodes of the series. How many times would the kids go to the same camp? I think it was good that it was a notable short series. Truth be told, it probably only had one more season left in it. Kids age and many of them were to be in the summer job phase. I can see ZZ being a camp counselor but she was really not a character that would kept people coming back. Like another poster said, there was no breakout star and everyone played off each other.

According to Tim Eyster, who was Sponge, after the second season, MTV bought out Nickelodeon and and wanted to use the money towards their newest show at the time, Beavis and Butt-head. They figured that new SYS episodes wouldn't be a part of their "newer" Nickelodeon network. Granted, if you want to get technical, MTV Networks has always owned Nickelodeon from the start. Nickelodeon, then Pinwheel, was originally created and owned by a company called Warner-Amex Satellite Entertainment. Then in 1986, WASE was bought out by Viacom and renamed MTV Networks.

Another likely reason for why SYS ended so soon is cast was getting too old and no longer seemed believable as campers, especially Blake Soper, Michael Bower, and Danny Cooksey, who were 19, 17, and 17 respectively during the show's second season. They looked old enough to be camp counselors. Plus, the growing actors probably wanted to do different projects rather than be stuck on Nickelodeon, a kid's network.

Not only that, Nickelodeon more than likely could no longer get access to Griffith Park, where it was filmed.

I didnít realize there were only 26 shows. I remember the original kid was replaced with another one at some point.
