The 10 Best Childhood TV Shows You Forgot Existed

The 10 Best Childhood TV Shows You Forgot Existed

We all remember getting ready to watch the new episode of our favorite tv show on Disney and Nickelodeon, but do you remember what those shows were? Take a look for a blast from the past!


Cody took over Riverdale, Miranda Cosgrove disappeared, and Raven Samone is back on Disney with a tv show about her daughter. These classic childhood tv shows are so unforgettable, but now that we have grown up we tend to forget about them.

From living a wizard life to jamming out on stage, kids that find these awesome shows from the 2000s will fall in love with the life these characters have; so take a trip down memory lane with me and reminisce on the life you wanted to have as a kid!

1. "The Suite Life of Zack and Cody"

Just admit it: We all either loved Zach or Cody, but Cole Sprouse is definitely the superior twin now. Living in a hotel, running around doing whatever you want all the time, and always getting to have fun is what this show was all about! As an elementary and middle schooler, the idea of a party all the time life made this show one of the all-time best shows during my childhood!

2. "iCarly"

Imagine being a famous YouTuber with two awesome best friends (who end up in love!) and living in the coolest apartment ever! I definitely wanted to be in this show and living this awesome life instead of having a boring room and going to school!

3. "The Wizards of Waverly Place"

Harry Potter is amazing, yes, but having a sweet little witch to look up was so fun when I was younger! I loved watching Selena Gomez play tricks on her family, friends, and learn all about how to be a witch!

4. "Drake & Josh"

This one is a classic (and still on Hulu!) Nickelodeon has to still claim Drake and Josh as one of their biggest hits because it is hilarious and has something for people of all ages. I just started putting this show on in the background while I work on homework or cleaning and I still know all of the words!

5. "Zoey 101"

The definition of a perfect high school was Zoey 101. Being able to live in the coolest dorms, eat sushi all day, and fall in love with your best friend was another one of my middle school dreams! Of course, real high school let me down after I set my expectations so high with this show.

6. "Hannah Montana"

I feel like everyone dreams of being famous at some point in their life and Hannah Montana embodied the double life everyone wanted to have. I still remember the shock of her pulling off her wig and revealing her identity at the end of the show. I am so glad Miley Cyrus is back to being normal now, but I would love to see a Hannah Montana spin off about Miley's life!

7. "Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide"

This was the realest of all the shows I watched as I kid, but high school was still worse than the show. I think what made this show a classic is how hilarious it was. There was never an episode so serious that I did not laugh my head off and I would love to be able to go back and watch it again now that I am an adult in college and survived all the struggles of being in high school.

8. "That's So Raven"

Admit it: we all loved this show and ran around pretending to see the future after watching it. From the fun music, catchy sayings, and hilarious cast this is one of the tv shows I miss the most! There is a spin-off series about Raven's kids, but I haven't had a chance to watch it yet!

9. "Cory in the House"

This was probably less watched, but I loved it! The entire process of being in the White House as a live in family was such an out of this world concept kept having me come back to watch it every week. While this was less popular than other shows I absolutely loved it.

10. "The Amanda Show"

This show still makes me laugh when I see clips of it on YouTube and here people talk about it. Amanda Bynes has been a hot mess since the show, but I really loved watching this show with my friends and laughing at it all day every day!

There are countless amazing tv shows that I need Netflix, Hulu, HBO, someone to put on a streaming service, but these are ten of my all-time favorites that are great to reminisce on!

13 Father's Day Shirts Under $30 To Gift The Dad Wearing The Same Two Every Day In Quarantine

You've been begging him to change it up, and now he won't have a choice.

Let's be honest: most of our dads are wearing the same shirts today that they probably wore while changing our diapers and holding our hands as we learned to walk. Sure, we love them for it. But whether you're quarantined with him wearing the same two shirts on rotation every week, or every time you FaceTime him, you know what he'll be wearing before he answers the phone, he needs to add some new items to his wardrobe rotation.

And you know dads — they'll feel guilted into using practically anything you were to give them. But these shirts are sure-fire ways to get him to switch up his wardrobe, and he'll be more than excited to wear each and every one of them. Plus, most of them are under twenty dollars, so no harm in dropping more than a couple in to your cart and letting Dad have his pick of his favorites.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Hollis Tuttle To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

My Boyfriend Has Changed Since Quarantine Began, And I Don't Know What To Do

"All he says is 'I love you,' which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him."

Each week Swoonie B will give her advice on anonymous topics submitted by readers. Want to Ask Swoonie B something related to dating and relationships? Fill out this form here — it's anonymous.

Dear Swoonie B,

My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost a year, which has been the best year of my life (as far as i know). Well we go to different schools and are both very involved in sports and school activities which makes it hard to see each other. During this quarantine it is especially hard. Since we haven't seen each other in over a week things are kind of tense. He won't really talk to me much and I always check in on him to make sure he is doing well and to just see how he is, ya know being a girlfriend. Well apparently that is driving him crazy and I don't understand how. I'm not being controling or clingy, i'm just checking in on him. While this is happening, I also have noticed how he just doesn't really care anymore. I'll leave him paragraphs of sweet love letters to wake up to and I encourage him throughout his day but I just don't get it in return. I love him with all of me and I obviously care about him a lot. Also, I've compared how he talked to me before all of this has happened. He was so sweet and caring, texting me a lot and telling me he loves me and just making sure everything is OK but he doesn't do that anymore. All he says is "I love you," which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him. He is a little stressed at home with trying to find another job to pay for his car, constantly having to do things for his mom, being responsible for his siblings, and managing school. I know thats a lot but im doing a lot too right now and going through a lot of the same stuff he is but It seems to me he just does not care and i don't know what to do. Please help me or give me some advice on what to say, what not to say, what to do, what not to do. Anything at this point will help. Thank you!

If I had a dollar for every time I heard "these are unprecedented times," I'd be rich. But that's because it's true!

Tower 28

On paper, Amy Liu appears to be one of the most intimidating women in the beauty business. Not only did she launch her beauty marketing career at legendary Smashbox Cosmetics, she went on to lead luxury, high-end brands like Kate Somerville and Josie Maran — just to name a few.

But sitting down to meet Liu for the first time in an underground New York bar over a year ago felt like meeting a friend I'd known since childhood. As she walked into the bar in a chic red dress, it was impossible not to feel her immediate warm presence. When she talks about her history as an entrepreneur (and truly, at heart, she always was one), you don't get the sense that she's selling you anything, though with her impeccable taste, I'd use anything that had her glowing review attached to it.

Sixth grade was the year that you were allowed to participate in a school sport. This was what my friends and I had all been waiting for since we started middle school. I had already made the cheer team with my friends, but I had to wait to start that in the winter since we cheered for basketball. I really wanted to have some sort of activity in the fall, but I did not know what to do. Somehow, I decided to run cross country. Not really sure how I decided on a sport where it was quite literally just running. A few of my friends were doing it as well, so I knew it was going to be fun.

Working Out Every Day During Quarantine Helps Me Feel A Sense Of Control

Physical activity helps my mental health in a world that feels uncertain.

Before the pandemic, I exercised a handful of times a week at best. In quarantine, I've been exercising every single day. I don't want this article to be another spiel about how exercise "changed my life," and all the other cliches that health gurus use to convince others to work out more. Rather, I want to reveal that exercise is a tool that works for me because it boosts my mental health when I feel like the world is spiraling out of control.

To say that 2020 has been a bit of a roller coaster is an extreme understatement. Who knew that this decade was going to start off like THIS!? Not me, not you, and not that sweet old lady who lives down the street. One thing is certain though — while the world may be a mess right now, you can still fuel your body with food that keeps you happy and healthy. Thankfully, as we are all spending more time inside, you can get healthy snacks delivered straight to your front door! Amazon has never been more convenient (and tasty).
