11 Classic Disney Channel Shows 2000s Middle Schoolers Cherished

There can never be a definitive ranking of these shows, but I'm sure we all have our personal favorites.

11 Classic Disney Channel Shows 2000s Middle Schoolers Cherished

I don't know about you, but with the growing age of technology, getting to grow up with Disney Channel was probably the best part of my childhood. It's a little hard to believe that many of our beloved TV shows are nearly 15 years old!

Though ranking them will never be definitive, I'm sure we all have our personal favorites"

11. That's So Raven

Because who could get enough of Raven's fashion and over-exaggerated vision stare? On a more serious note, from pointing out issues with body-shaming and racism to teaching viewers to be proud and self-confident, Raven was a great role model to look up to.

10. Lizzie McGuire

I felt like I could really relate to Lizzie's struggles with boys, friends, and training bras.

9. Dave the Barbarian

As funny as Dave the Barbarian was, I didn't (and still don't) understand what this show was really about... but I always kinda wished to be Fang.

8. Jonas

If you know anything about me, this shouldn't come as a surprise. Though short-lived, Jonas will always be one of my top Disney faves!

7. The Proud Family

On top of this show being full of important life lessons, the theme song was always the jam. Singing along definitely made 8-year-old me feel like Beyoncé.

6. Wizards of Waverly Place

I'll never stop wishing that I could go back in time like in the theme song – it would have saved me a lot of trouble in high school. Also, unpopular opinion: I loved Harper and her eccentric outfits.

5. The Suite Life of Zack and Cody

What kid wouldn't want to live in a hotel and wreak havoc on the staff?! I bet your favorite episode was either the one about the ghost in Suite 613 or the one with Jesse McCartney.

4. American Dragon: Jake Long

As one of the only shows focused on Asian culture, I had a soft spot for Jake Long. In writing this article, I actually revisited this show and realized that, even though Jake was really irresponsible and self-absorbed, he really came through when he needed to save the day. #Goals

3. Hannah Montana

We have reached my Top 3, and what better way to get it going than with one of the best shows to air on television? Even though the show ended a while back, I'll still spend my life wishing I was a secret pop star with a blond wig.

2. Phil of the Future

In my opinion, this was one of the most underrated shows on Disney Channel. It's kind of like an early 2000s Modern Family. I also had a huge crush on Ricky Ullman, so I could just never get enough of this futuristic family.

1. Kim Possible

My all-time favorite show, Kim Possible always had me smiling, sitting on the edge of my seat, and wishing I was a kick-ass secret agent. Rescuing innocent people and cute boy bands, kicking bad guy butt, and getting through high school – could she be any more of a triple threat?!

It's hard not to get nostalgic and excited whenever we hear these throwbacks, and I bet some unforgettable memories pop up in our heads without us even trying. I thank Disney for bringing so much adventure and wonder into my life.

With fall 2022 already around the corner, it's time to bring out the flannels, thermals, button-ups, and sweaters that have remained untouched for almost a year. Fall is all about individuality and authenticity, so style these clothing items in whichever way you please.

That being said, I also included a few styling tips for each item to help you get some inspiration and create a mental lookbook. The following fifteen sweaters range from neutral, color block, stripes, cable knit, cashmere, cardigans, and more.

Her Campus

I remember freshman year like it was just yesterday. I remember frantically walking to my first class with my highlighted map of campus in hand trying to get there early to get a front row seat. I remember learning that college exams are very different from high school ones. Studying the night before an exam just doesn’t cut it like it used to. Through the good, bad and the ugly of my freshman year, I knew everything was going to be OK because I was only a freshman. I didn’t know any better! It was only going to get easier right?

Hannah Cook

August was a long month. This year, it was probably my longest month. It felt never ending. The end of the month felt so far away.
