Disney Channel launches its version of ”Throwback Thursday” tonight with Disney Replay. At midnight on Wednesdays, the station will air old episodes of your favorite shows from the past 10 years. Tonight, there’s an episode of Even Stevens, and starting next week there will be a one-hour block of programming. I’m a sucker for recent nostalgia, so here are five shows I really want to see.
1. The Famous Jett Jackson
Jackson doesn’t quite make the decade mark. However, with a cameo from Rachel McAdams (in a serious episode about eating disorders), dreamboat Lee Thompson Young as the lead, and the improbability of an entire production of a television show moving so one kid could spend more time with his family, I’d love to see more of this show.
2. Kim Possible
Christy Carlson Romano (who was seriously all over the Disney Channel in the early 2000s) lent her voice to a show with the catchiest of theme songs. Who doesn’t love the affable Ron Stoppable (voiced by Boy Meets World’s Will Friedle)?
3. That’s So Raven
4. The Proud Family
Come for the theme song, stay for Suga Mama and the mean group of girls that were inexplicable entirely blue.
5. So Weird
Again, Fi’s supernatural show doesn’t quite make it in the ”past decade” mark, but I would legitimately watch all of these episodes again. Notable cases include the Chicago Fire episode, the one where people were being turned into vegetables, and of course this one where Molly (Mackenzie Phillips) sees her old friend again, who happens to be immortal. Plus, making an eye spin around on a computer back then must have taken forever!
If there are any old episodes you want to watch @DisneyChannelPR encourages you to tweet at them using the hashtag #TBTonDC. Oh also, The Even Stevens airing tonight is the musical one:
