The 10 Best Kids' TV Shows From The Early 2000s That College Kids Still Think About In 2019

As a kid who was born in January of 1999, I look back at the shows of my childhood with tremendous reverence. I remember all the words to the theme songs, and watching old episodes still makes me laugh. I even find myself looking at the shows my 10-year-old sibling watches and going, "ugh, they were so much better when I was your age!" In short, I feel old.

All these years later, I still like thinking about the shows of the early 2000s, and they take me right back to that time when I was a happy-go-lucky kid in elementary school. So, here are 10 of the best kids' TV shows from the early 2000s.

1. Spongebob Squarepants

Of course Spongebob has to be the #1 show on this list. It is the absolute foundation for all kids TV shows, and it still remains popular to this day. However, the early 2000s were when Spongebob was in his prime, and every single kid born in the late 90s has an almost encyclopedic knowledge of Spongebob episodes. Chances are, if you give them a line like, "me hoy mi noy," they will be able to tell you what episode its from, give you context and tell you what character said it.

2. Hannah Montana

Hannah Montana was the queen of Disney channel for many, many years. Every girl dreamed of having a secret pop-star alter-ego and a closet that rivaled the size of a department store.

3. Drake and Josh

This show has stood the test of time as being absolutely hilarious, and I find it just as funny in 2019 as I did in 2007. Drake Bell and Josh Peck are hysterical together and the show is just so, so good.

4. The Suite Life of Zack and Cody

This show is just great, and gave every kid the ultimate dream of living in a hotel. It also made every kid wish they had a twin to get into shenanigans with.

5. Fairly Oddparents

This show has not only one of my favorite stories, but one of my favorite theme songs. "Timmy is an average kid, that no one understands..."

6. Danny Phantom

I didn't watch this show as frequently as others in this list, but it was always super entertaining and had an awesome premise.

7. Kim Possible

Second to Spongebob, Kim Possible was (is) my favorite childhood (adulthood) cartoon. It is just. So. Good.

8. Jimmy Neutron

This was another great cartoon, although the animation didn't age as well as some other shows. Gotta blast!

9. Phineas and Ferb

Another high-quality cartoon that made us all realize how unproductive and boring our summers really are.

10. That's So RavenImage result for that's so raven

In my opinion, this was one of Disney's most unique shows, and it also has stood the test of time as there's now a spinoff.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
