I must ask. Which Disney Channel did you all like, then (5-7 years ago) or now. Maybe it is because I am older now, but I feel that except for Phil of the Future, Disney Channel is dead to me.

I miss Even Stevens, and So Weird. Who knows what other shows I have forgotten. And I am not talking reruns, but new episodes. And the movies, the movies I loved. I looked forward to the monthly movies, now meh.

So I wonder if anyone is like me out there, and miss the old Disney Channel.

I miss some of the old shows--Even Stevens, etc. I think Disney Channel is going downhill. A lot of the shows now are just stupid and pointless.

I never really watched it, but I would watchi it now and again. And I agree, that the disney channel has gone downhill. I liked even stevens (the evens steven movie was just on yesterday, I like that movie.)

I really don't like that all american dragon show, maggie the bug, the suit life of cody and the other kid (i forget his name) is ok, and brandy and mr whiskers is just weird!

but one of the older shows I couldn't stand was the proud family, they just bugged me for some reason!!

Another old movie I liked was A Date with the President's daughter. I think that was one? If not I still like it lol

Oh yes! My Day with the President's Daughter...I've watched that a FEW too many times!!!

I hardly remember what shows even used to be on anymore!

I remember so weird...but I refused to watch that. Even Stevens...I never really got into...but there was sum stuff I really liked, but I don't remember!

Oh, I loved the movie "Stepsister from the Planet Weird" where her sister was a bubble thing :rotfl:

OMG, anyone remember "The Jersey" and "The Famous Jett Jackson"?

I <3ed those!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You know what I really miss? All those awesome Disney Channel original movies. Do you remember Susie Q? All of those good old movies need to come back. Seriously no one wants to watch those dumb ones they're comming out with now.

It was so much better when you had to pay to get it. Remember Fraggle Rock and Under the Umbrella tree?

Maybe disney channel isn't getting dumber...maybe we're just getting older. poo...

That was a good one too! Lol, I liked that one too.

Don't mean to be OT, but I think Nickelodeon (sp??) has gone downhill too. I hate the new shows Zoey 101 and Ned's Declassifed. And ugh, Unfabulous. But I do like Drake and Josh. But a new show that I really like is catscratch lol. What happened to the rugrats (the younger version), As told by Ginger, Angry Beavers, Catdog, and Hey Arnold?

I LOVED Susie Q, My Date with the President's Daughter, Jumping Ship, Brotherly Love, Even Stevens, Jett Jackson, So Weird, Smart Guy, Sister-Sister, Boy Meets World (even thought it was in re-runs) Fraggle Rock (BTW, the first season of Fraggle Rock is now on DVD), Under the Umbrella Tree, and The Weekenders. I loved the theme song for Zoog Disney!! There was another show I liked, but I can't remember what it was........
BTW, why the heck did they put Dragnet on Disney Channel????
This thread is cool!! Brings back memories!

OMG!!!!!!!! Wow you sound just like me. All of these shows were my favorites. None of my friends even remember Under the Umbrella Tree. You're the 1st person I've heard of that actually remembered that.

What about DOUG!?!?!?! WOW. That was an amazing cartoon right there.

BTW Newsies is amazing! "For a dreamer...night's the only time of day"

well according to this i'm the only one who likes the disney channel (well not one who thinks all the new shows are bad)

maybe it's because they have 4 different channels for it (jetix and jetix +1, disney channel and disney channel +1, toon disney and playhouse disney) so you can watch what you want really

and most of the old shows get shown when we are at school so when i'm ill i sometimes watch them

and there is only one break per show which lasts about 30 seconds-1 minute (unlike having 3 breaks)

maybe thats why?

How do you get all of those channels???? On the Disney Channel programming I get they show Playhouse Disney from about 6AM-2PM, then the new sitcoms, then about 8PM they have a movie, then about 10PM repeats of some of the shows they showed earlier, then from midnight-6AM is a ?. I have DC east and west and the only difference is that the programming on west comes on three hours after east showed it. Then there's Toon Disney. And it shows of course, cartoon programs during the day, then Jetix in the afternoon, and possibly a movie at night(?). I don't understand how you get all of the other channels with the old shows??
BTW, does anyone remember Bonkers???
FIRST TO POST IN THE NEW YEAR!!!!! HAPPY 2006!!!!!!

Flash Forward
So Weird
Darkwing Duck
The original Power Rangers (yea I was a power ranger freak when I was little)

Inspector Gadget

Cadet Kelly (I'm not a fan of Hillary Duff, but I liked the movie)
The Color of Friendship
Genius
Hounded
Smart House
Get a Clue
Gotta Kick it Up (eh, it was an ok movie)
Horse Sense
Jumping Ship
The Poof Point
Tru Confessions (that was a really good movie, really different from the others..)
Jett Jackson: The Movie
Right on Track
Rip Girls (with the girl with the funny ears..)
Stepsister From Planet Weird
Escape from/to Witch Mountain
Susie Q (starring the pink power ranger..)

Nickelodeon shows they should bring back:
Clarissa Explains it All
Hey Dude
The Secret Life of Alex Mack
Pete & Pete
Eureeka's Castle
Gullah Gullah Island
Salute Your Shorts (I loved that show)
Double Dare
Legends of the Hidden Temple
Caitlin's Way
Figure it Out
Z-ball (the one where kids were given random objects and had to make a game out of them..I'm not sure if that's the name)
Welcome Freshman
Fifteen
Are You Afraid of the Dark
The whole SNICK thing with the orange couch
Kenan & Kel
Goosebumps (the show and movies)

As for Nickelodeon Movies, does anyone remember Harriet the Spy?

Other Shows:
State of Grace

PHIL GOT CANCELED??? NO!!!!!!!
BTW, some of the movies that you guys have been talking about are available on DVD, like Cadet Kelly, Get a Clue, Zenon, Escape to Witch Mountain, etc. Go to disneydvd.com and type the movie you want into the search feature. I they have it, it'll come up and you can click on it. It'll tell you on the side of the screen whether you can order it or not. If they're not available, do to Blockbuster or your local video rental and see if they have what you're looking for on VHS. Some of these movies where released on VHS to video retals stores, but not released to the public.
I think they need to put some of these TV shows on DVD!!

Phil is like the only decent show on DC. Ricky Ullman's not too hard on the eyes either. LOL

oh my gosh, old Disney channel rocked! And when I say old, I'm talking about back when they had no commercials til the end of the show...back when they had Torklesons (haven't seen that mentioned yet but I loved it! probably partly b/c it was based in OK, which is where I grew up), Under the Umbrella Tree was awesome! Fraggle Rock, Gummie Bears, Tale Spin, "Chi-chi-chi-chip and Dale, Rescue Rangers"... :rotfl2: ...what else...So Weird was a fun later one, as was Brotherly Love and Smart Guy...yep, TV for kids in general has just really gone downhill. The shows are all so pointless and mind-numbing! I think the only Disney cartoon I like now is Kim Possible - always makes me laugh. Honestly, I'm a little worried how a generation raised on the likes of Spongebob and Dave the Barbarian are going to turn out! :earseek: ok, I'm off my soap box..for now. :rolleyes: :teeth:

oh my gosh!!! Ocean Girl!!! I looooved that one!!! I was just thinking about that one the other day. Did it ever actually end? I remember they were looking for these pieces of a sphere, to, like, save the ocean or something? But I can't remember if they ever succeeded or if the show ended before then. lol, my sister and I had mini crushes on her two Australian guy friends that were always helping her. :rolleyes: :rotfl:

ellindea, my grandmother and I used to watch the Torkelsons all the time, and we were terribly disappointed when they suddenly canceled it. From what I know now, I don't think the programming executives knew exactly what to do with that kind of show.
