Did my Worst Disney Channel shows, now my best shows list.
10. That's So Raven - This show was extremely funny! I loved the use of clairvoyance and all the creative situasions it was used in. And Raven Symone's performance really added up to the show. The spin-off series wasn't that great, mainly because it didn't have Raven, who is, in my opinion, one of the funniest protagonists in a Disney sitcom.
9. Phineas and Ferb - Yeah, the reason I put this so low on the list is because, well... The first and most of the second season, was AWESOME! I remember watching the premiere of the Rollercoaster episode. I coudn't stop laughing. It was such a creative show with a lot of comical situations and unique scenarios. I absolutely loved it. Sadly, it took a turn downhill for me. Somewhere in the second season (I could say after the Christmas Vacation, which I love by the way) it all went wrong. After that, I only enjoyed very few episodes, and before the Christmas one, there were a few I didn't like. Suddenly, it became dull, repetitive and Phineas and Ferb's skills aren't just the same. Remember how the rollercoaster seemed all homemade and cheap? That's what I loved! It looked like something a kid built (Though in real life couldn't). Now everything seems so futuristic. And for those wondering, I really didn't like the Across the 2nd Dimmension that much. I would have liked it more if it was the finale. By the way, haven't 104 days of summer vacation passed already? When are they going back to school? (PS: I'd also love that as a finale. The start of the school year).
8. Kim Possible - This show was simply amazing. It had spies, adventure, supervillains, comedy, everything a good spy flick shoud have. And to wrap it up, they made it a series. A spy series! How could that not be cool? It was definitely a great attempt to give spies to young audiences.
7. Recess - One of the things I absolutely love about this one is that it was such a creative idea. It was surprising a plot like this never appeared before, and I think it's something similar what they later did for Phineas and Ferb (Only instead of recess, vacations). I found each episode quite satisfactory because most were things that I could relate to. Every character was likeable, and the recurring characters were also a lot of fun (The teachers, the other kids). It just was a cool show, with a lot of creative characters and situations.
6. The Suite Life of Zack & Cody - This one, like That's So Raven, stands up for its comedy. There wasn't a character that wasn't funny in this show. Zack was funny, Cody was funny, Maddie, London, Moseby, and Carey were also funny. Heck, even the recurring cast was funny! Arwin, Esteban, Muriel and Nina always made me laugh whenever they were on screen. The premise was also very creative. A couple of twins that have to live in a hotel? Excellent. Curiously, one of the things I most remember about this one is the Christmas special. It was so heartwarming and one of the few that really showed the true meaning of Christmas. This is one of those shows I cheer whenever it is on.
5. Brandy & Mr. Whiskers - This show's best trait was that it was A LOT OF FUN. It took itself seriously in a way, the jokes were never dumb, they used quite a deal of smart humor. The premise was perfect for any Saturday Morning cartoon, and the show knew it. It knew it was a cartoon and it enjoyed it to the maximum. It had a ton of fun with the rainforests, its animals and the way Brandy and Mr. Whiskers reacted to them. The situations were hilarious and each episode was creative in a new way. One of my favorite cartoons of all time.
4. Hercules: the Animated Series - This is one that most people wouldn't place in their favorites, but I can't help to. I mean, I love Greek Mythology and this series (As well as the movie, which I love) has a ton of fun with it. I don't care if neither was accurate, I don't care if they softened it for young audiences, I knew every myth they showed in the series, and enjoy the way they portrayed it, accurate or not. They had the characters of the myths perfectly and the situations they had them in were always creative. I loved this show, even if it is sometimes skipped my some.
3. Lilo & Stitch: The Series - I love the Lilo & Stitch movies (Yes, all four of them) and absolutely loved this show. I loved how they showed us the experiments and loved how they'd find more and more creative ways for them to be, act, and have their place where to belong. I also loved how Jumba and Pleakley adapted to life on earth in each episode and how they always got something about us wrong. It was hilarious. I really did not like Stitch! That anime series, it just didn't work out for me. I mean, I loved Lilo. Why did they take her away? It just seemed like a dumb idea when Lilo & Stitch the Series was already around.
2. Good Luck Charlie - Man, I LOVE this show. The idea was definitely most original and so well developed. The premise is awesome. Four teenagers that have to help their parents raise their new baby? Incredible. I also love how each character is different and they all have such a good screen chemistry, they look like a real family would. I also like how Charlie is not only played for cuteness and Awwwws, but is also used a a comic relief. But the show stealers are definitely Teddy and Amy Duncan, specially Amy. She's just perfect. She's a great characters and is not made a perfect human being like in most things, she has her flaws, and acts like a real mother would. The show's smart humor and creative plot makes it my favorite Disney sitcom.
1. House of Mouse - This show has everything the Disney shorts always had. Comedy, good characters, smart humor and a good plot to wrap it up. The idea of making this show/dine-in for Disney characters to interact with other Disney characters and watch Disney shorts like these are their movies is simply great. The jokes with the guests were always great, as well as the way they interacted in each episode's plot. And I don't really care it didn't have much of a continuity with the movies. I didn't care the Beast was still a Beast, I din't care some of the villains were still alive, the show just had a ton of fun with these characters. The plots of each episode were always creative and the cartoons they showed were just hilarious (A good way to introduce the "short" to younger audiences). It's simply a great cartoon with a ton of fun characters to create the best of situations.
Honorable Mentions (Or the ones people would like to see here):
- American Dragon: Jake Long - I certainly liked this one, though I always saw as a somewhat Danny Phantom that instead of ghosts had magical creatures (I always love Danny Phantom and its various months older than American Dragon). Might be a good one, but not really my type.
- Wizards of Waverly Place - It was a really fun show, but I would have liked it best if 1) The movie would have been the finale and 2) If it took itself a bit more seriously.
- Gravity Falls - The few times I've seen this one I'm really not that impressed and I don't understand the universal acclaim it's getting, but I certainly find it creative and original in the story and character aspects. I can see why people like it, but not why it's such a huge hit.
- Sonny With a Chance - This show was great for the first season and part of the second, but it soon became dull, around the time Sonny and Chad started dating. A real shame though, it really was very funny during the first season.
So that's my opinion, but I'd like to hear yours. Please be free to comment and share your thoughts on these or maybe other Disney shows. Thanks for reading, Name's Hades, lord of the dead. Hey, how ya doin'? 01:53, December 29, 2012 (UTC)
