"I’ve been working with Nickelodeon for 20 years now and they haven’t had an award like that, to my knowledge, so I had no idea they were planning to give one and the fact that they were giving one to me, I was just like… I’m so connected with Nickelodeon I usually kind of know most of what’s going on there. And it totally caught me off guard. I just feel really proud." - Dan about winning the first ever lifetime achievement award at the 2014 Kids' Choice Awards.
