Post subject:  Lizzie McGuire Back on Disney Channel!

Okay. I know that practically no one cares about this, Lizzie McGuire was added back into Disney Channel's schedule starting September 12. It airs two days a week in a block. Hopefully this is the start of more older series returning! (i.e. So Weird, Even Stevens, Famous Jet Jackson, The Jersey, etc.)

:D

I especially love the fresh, first season of "Lizzie McGuire" so this is good news. Can't believe this show is officially OLD now! Scary... :roll:

I know I will get attacked for this, but I think this show is one of the reasons why The Disney Channel is the way it is now.

I agree. Not to mention it was Lizzie McGuire's popularity that lead to Vault Disney being taken off so re-runs of that and other shows can be played during the late-night block.

I watched an episode of it today. It's hard to believe that this aired when I was, like, 6 or 7 and now it's old. Does that make me ancient? Haha

Now, all that's left is to get other smarter shows back in the block, and Disney XD back to Toon Disney. :P

I noticed this too last week. It was weird to see it again. Though it might mean some other old stuff will get aired again, I suspect it is an attempt to focus Disney Channel more towards girls now that they have XD, a channel aimed at boys. I said this would happen some time back, but was scoffed at for it. Wouldn't be too surprised if So Weird came back on here, but I won't hold my breath for the return of any old shows. I just hope we see some more DVDs of this stuff too. Again though, won't hold my breath.

I don't think Lizzie should be blamed for current Disney Channel. It was a good enough show to fit in well with old Disney. Honestly, it doesn't look the same as the current Disney Channel shows, and that may prevent it from staying on long this second go-round. But, anyway, as I was saying, I don't think the current shows are Lizzie's fault, I think the decision to go tween was made a bit before. Yeah, Lizzie was one of the first shows, but I don't think it was the cause of the decision. And I'm not sure if Raven was the first of the big, overacting, goofball comedies, but it's the earliest I can remember and that seems a more worthy place to lay blame for how cheesy current Disney CHannel shows are.

I remember Disney Channel making "So Weird"'s third season significantly lighter than the previous two. Originally, the main character was supposed to go to Hell and find her dad. That was seriously a dark children's program, and it used to scare me when I was a kid. And I loved every minute of it. :D

Also, I don't think Lizzie McGuire had anything to do with DC's wanting to become a more kid-friendly channel. Like S2M, I lay the blame on That's So Raven, which I still enjoyed. Even that is a million times better than what's on the station now.

Well, it's nice to know that old Disney Channel might be making a come back. This actually gives me hope, as well as the new show they have in development called Smart Alec. I've read the script and it isn't that bad. It's actually funny :o Definitely much better than Hannah Montana.

Aren't "Jett Jackson" and "Even Stevens" on Disney XD?

It's based on a fourteen-year-old girl who, in eighth grade, was a super-nerd (don't know how else to describe her :lol: ) but during the summer transition to high school, she became this hot and popular girl, but is still a nerd on the inside. She basically tries to help her new popular friends and old nerdy friends get along with each other.

It's still fairly much like the shows on today, but the humor is actually pretty well done. I'm auditioning for the lead character tomorrow, so I'll try to make everyone proud. :)

There isn't one. No "twist", no real plot, and filmed more in a similar style to Jonas, but without so much silliness. Just a regular 13 yr old girl and her friends tackling middle-school. The only "twist" is her thoughts are conveyed through frequent cuts to an animated version of herself.

Uh, I suggest reading the first post in a topic before replying to one, taken totally out of context. :)

Lizzie McGuire was taken off the air when I started watching Disney Channel a couple years ago (during the "That's So Raven-Suite Life-Phil of the Future-Hannah Montana [just starting] era").

I do love the movie though, it's a guilty pleasure of mine xD.

It should be. Coincidently, a few of my friends from the acting academy I go to are auditioning as well, so it should be interesting :P I'll post the details of the audition here for all those who are interested!

oops! I thought this was a Lizzie McGuire topic. And I think you meant the post above mine, other than the first one.

So Weird was one of my favorite shows!:) Too bad it isn't on DVD. :(

And Good Luck to ColorsoftheWind.
