Earlier today, actress Amanda Bynes announced her retirement from acting at the venerable age of 24 years old via Twitter. In her words:

I’ve never written the movies & tv shows I’ve been apart of I’ve only acted like the characters the producers or directors wanted me to play

Being an actress isn’t as fun as it may seem

If I don’t love something anymore I stop doing it

I don’t love acting anymore so I’ve stopped doing it

I know 24 is a young age to retire but you heard it here first I’ve #retired

While Bynes had broken into film and will be appearing in Easy A with Emma Stone, that will be the last time we see her supposedly act. It’s a dark day indeed.

But we remember a brighter time, when child stars were still children and they starred in a sketch comedy series on Nickelodeon called All That. The series was the launching point not only for Amanda Bynes, but for a great many other then-young actors as well. In honor of Bynes’ retirement, we have created this infographic to document the evolution of All That and it’s endless, growing tree of spin-offs that are still giving young actors a chance to shine. Someday they, too, may retire at 24.
