In no particular order, let's flip through the channels of cable television, before Hannah Montana and the Kardashians took over.
1. Kim Possible
2. The Amanda Show
3. The Proud Family
4. Teen Titans
Who misses when Teen Titans was drenched in teen angst?
5. That's So Raven
Old school Disney was so good at creating catch phrases
6. The Suite Life of Zack and Cody
Let's not talk about The Suite Life on Deck.
7. Baby Looney Tunes
Because everything small is always more fun
8. The Fairly Odd Parents
Cosmo was like the cartoon version of Joey and Phoebe in Friends
Nickelodeon prepared us for adulthood from way too young
11. Drake & JoshThey were always serving us classic moments like this.
12. Kids Next Door
They made us never want to grow up (but helped us accept changing from kids to annoying teens)
13. Lizzie McGuire
Who can forget when Lizzie transformed into an international pop star and got the most epic Roman holiday ever?
14. Code Lyoko
Probably one of the most underrated 2000s shows
15. Totally Spies
They were like the Charlie's Angels for kids
16. Total Drama Island
Cartoon Network fostering the millennial youth to love reality television.
17. Xiaolin Showdown
The best mix of fighting for justice and comedy
18. All That!
We all wanted to go to the Digital World and have adventures
We all knew that Yugi, transformed as the Pharaoh, would win with his heart of the cards.
21. Boy Meets World
Somehow even though Danny turned into a ghost, you could still relate to his teen troubles.
23. My Life as a Teenage Robot
Nickelodeon must have really had a thing for creating less-than-ordinary teens and making them have relatable teen problems.
The show made you want to have a mundane part-time job at the mall
25. Samurai Jack
Nothing beats watching a samurai who has the ability to possibly defeat an almighty demon.
Ah, baby Emma Roberts.
I would love to return to cable T.V. from the early 2000s, but I can't give up online Netflix. Netflix and Hulu just need to add these television shows to their repertoire and my life would be complete :D.
S/O to my friends that helped me assemble this list :D
