30 Forgotten Disney Shows

These are some of the best old school Disney shows that very few seem to remember.

30 Forgotten Disney Shows

Most of us kids born in the 90s like to reminisce on the Disney Channel shows we watched growing up. You know, "That's So Raven," "Lizzie McGuire,'' "The Suite Life of Zack & Cody," etc... To me, those shows aren't really the old shows. This is a list of the shows I mean when I say "the good old Disney."

1. "Timon & Pumbaa"

This show follows the adventures of Simba's trusty sidekicks from "The Lion King," Timon and Pumbaa. With Simba out of the picture, there is no one to prevent these two from causing mischief. Not to mention, the hyenas are still after the pair.

2. "The Little Mermaid"

Before Ariel fell in love with Prince Eric, she journeyed through the oceanic land of Atlantica. King Triton and Sebastian are still aotund to keep her out of harm's way. Along with her best friend, Flounder, Ariel explores new places and makes new friends.

3. "Aladdin"

Between Aladdin and Jasmine meeting and getting married, there was a series that was created. In this series, the couple, along with Genie, Iago and Rajah, encounter many different villains. Some of them try to take over Agrabah, others try to break up the gang, one way or another. Each time, they manage to escape the clutches of evil, and protect Agrabah from danger..

4. "Jungle Cubs"

The show is set before any of the characters had any contact with Mowgli the man-cub. It actually starts when they are all cubs. Shere Khan is still a bully. Other than that, everyone got along fine. It outlined ther personalities that each character had in "The Jungle Book."

5. "Adventures of the Gummi Bears"

These bears always set out on the most fun adventures. The Gummi family lived in a tree called Gummi Glen. The story is set in a time when humans and Gummis are at odds. Along their journey, the Gummis make progress to befriending humans.

6. "Goof Troop"

Before Max grew up into the high school student who set out on a roadtrip with his clumsy dad, he had to be raised by him first. Pete and P.J. are there neighbors. Max and P.J. are still best friends, just like in "A Goofy Movie." By the way, Goofy's real name is George.

7. "Mighty Ducks"

This is not the movie about Emilio Estevez. This show was about actual ducks who played hockey and fought the bad guys. Did I mention that the hockey mask has the power to seek out the bad guys? Besides being awesome on the ice, these guys were even more awesome at taking out the bad guys!

8. "Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers"

In this show, the two chipmunks, Chip and Dale set out on adventures with their friends to solve mysteries. They have their own detective agency. The gang solves crime, usually involving the feline villain, Fat Cat.

9. "DuckTales"

Scrooge McDuck is left responsible for his nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie. While staying with their rich uncle, the boys experience all kinds of adventures. Usually, their adventures are surrounded by protecting their uncle's fortune.

10. "TaleSpin"

Remember Baloo, the bear from "The Jungle Book?" Yeah, he's a pilot in this one. He would use his flying skills to help out those in need, while also saving his own skin. Joined by Kit Cloudkicker, Rebecca Cunningham and Molly Cunningham, Baloo battles new and old foes.

11. "Gargoyles"

These shows are in no particular order. If they were, "Gargoyles" would be my number one choice. Gargoyles protect the streets of Manhattan. The plot for this show was great. It was a continuous story that kids and adults could enjoy. But, then again, who am I to talk? I'd enjoy watching any of these shows any time


12. "Vault Disney"

It seems like almost no one remembers this part of Disney. Late at night, Disney would play the really old shows and movies. The old "Mickey Mouse Club" would be shown. The old 1961 version of "Babes in Toyland" was also shown. The old Mickey Mouse shows would be played. Sometimes, I stayed up late as a child just to watch this and fall asleep.

13. "Microscopic Milton"

No one remembers this show. I have asked multiple people throughout my lifetime, and no one remembers this show. It was about this guy named Milton who was, well, microscopic. It used to come on in the mornings. He lived in a clock in a woman's house. He was friends with the dog. His adventures were usually him finding his way around the house.

14. "New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh"

Any adventure with Winnie the Pooh and friends is an adventure worth taking. Valuable lessons are taught in this series. The gang is still together. Honey is still Pooh's obsession. Tigger still bus Rabbit's nerves. All is normal in the 100 Acre Wood.

15. "Dinosaurs"

"Not the Mama! Not the Mama! Not the Mama!" Need I say more? This show was a hilarious series about dinosaurs just trying to make a living, the same way humans do.You get to see the perspective of the husband, wife, and kids. After watching it again on Netflix, I realized that some parts of this show were tailored to adults.

16. "Brotherly Love"

Remember that show about the brothers from the 90s? No, not "Boy Meets World." That's almost an unforgettable show. This sitcom was about three brothers who were trying to get through life after the loss of their father.

17. "Smart Guy"

I used to think that this show would tie in to "Sister, Sister." I figured it that Tia and Tamera had a long lost baby brother who was a genius. I was partially correct. He was a genius. Because he was so intelligent, this 10-year-old got to skip a few grades and join the ranks of high school with his older brother.

18. "Darkwing Duck"

He was almost like Batman in the form of a duck. He was the ultimate crime stopper. Remember Launchpad McQuack from "TaleSpin?" He's in this show, too. He and Darkwing Duck's niece help him to fight crime and keep the city safe.

19. "Bonkers"

This bobcat was once a Hollywood star. After that lifestyle failed, he became a police officer. Although he was clumsy, he never failed to help protect those in need.

20. "Quack Pack"

I think Disney was trying to tell us that ducks are our future because quite a few of their shows around this time involved ducks. Huey, Dewey and Louie are teenagers now. This time around, they are driving their Uncle Donald up the wall with their teenage antics. They, too, fight crime, on occasion.

21. "Doug"

Doug Funnie is just a junior high student trying to escape the bullying of Roger Klotz and finally have the courage to ask Patti Mayonnaise out. With the help of his best friend, Skeeter, and his dog, Porkchop he manages to make it through this point in life.

22. "101 Dalmatians"

Rather than focusing on the owners and the parents, this show focuses on the puppies, and their adventures. Cruella de Vil is still harrassing the puppies. This time around, the puppies, their parents and owners have been living on a farm, rather than in the city.

23. "The Weekenders"

These four kids were a group of friends in the seventh grade who were just trying to make it through each weekend. Each of them came from a culturally different background. They all went through some issue that is typical for the average seventh grader.

24. "Teacher's Pet"

Nathan Lane plays a dog named Spot. It turns out that Spot is highly intelligent, and he can pass for a human. He decides to go to school with his owner and best friend, Leonard. During school, he is Scott. To make matters even more interesting, his teacher is Leonard's mother. All Spot/Scott has ever wanted was to be a human. In this series, he finally gets a chance.

25. "So Weird"

Again, am I the only one who remembers this show? Think of it as "The X-Files." The difference is that she isn't an FBI agent. She's a 14-year-old girl traveling with her musician mother. She does still encounter the supernatural, though. She creates a website called "So Weird" to share with the world about her encounters.

26. "Bug Juice"

This show was about kids sharing their experiences at summer camp. It was a reality show. It pretty much showed a basic view of what kids could expect when going away to summer camp.

27. "Going Wild with Jeff Corwin"

Before there was "Wild Krats," there was Jeff Corwin. He, like Steve Irwin, would travel around the world to explore different areas and animals. Jeff Corwin could be seen with lions, moose, snakes and many other animals.

28. "PB&J Otter"

This show was about three siblings: Peanut, Butter and Jelly Otter. I guess we know what their mom was craving when she was pregnant. This show was usually an educational show that had a moral to go along with it. They also had "The Noodle Dance," which encouraged kids to use their "noodle," and think.

29. "Out of the Box"

This show encouraged kids to be creative. The playhouse looked like a stable treehouse on the inside, but outside it was just a few cardboard boxes. Tony and Vivian were the two adults who helped the kids with singing, dancing, arts, crafts and so much more. At the end of every episode, they would sing the farewell song, and it seemed like they genuinely cared about the kids.

30. "Rolie Polie Olie"

This little guy was a circular figure in a futuristic setting. Even though he was a robot, he, and everyone on his robotic planet had emotion. Rolie Polie Olie would go on adventures. Most of them were just his imagination, but he had a blast and learned his lesson along the way.

These are just the shows that I can remember off the top of my head, but I hope I jogged some memories with this nostalgic list.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
