Although I love P & F and can tolerate most shows on Disney Junior, I agree! I loved Pooh's Corner and does anyone remember "Under the Umbrella Tree"? That's one that I loved!

I fully support the "Disney Classic" idea. It seems like a logical expansion, a great option for Disney fans who want to stick with the classic programming. But then, who would watch the new Disney Channel? Still, a Disney Classic channel would hit the spot for classic Disney fans!

Thumbs up

I share your opinion. I remember when TDC had the New MMC, had music specials, Disney bumpers, old Disney cartoons/movie segments, and various movie festivals. This was back in the 90's and before they turned the channel into a Nickelodeon wanna-be.

Fortunately, I have some old Disney specials on VHS tape and transferred them onto DVDs. Anyone remember WDW: Inside Out hosted by Scott Harriot? I'm so glad I have those on VHS! I also have found TCM

I fear that the primary goal of the Disney Channel now if to make sure everything can reach a multi-platform: cast a kid in a show, sell merchandise, record an album, then fire him. You never saw them do that with Boy Meets World.

Disney Channel never really got it right again after Boy Meets World. TV actors do not need to be pop stars or models. In fact, it is probably best if they aren't (see Miley Cyrus for proof). TV shows don't need to take place on cruise ships or penthouse suites, either.

I hadn't watched TDC since I was in HS when it first started. Back then, our whole family watched it, and it had really good programming, include runs of the old movies.

I got started watching it again after I caught a 1st season episode of P&F (while I was at WDW) and fell in love. Now even my DH is excited when there's a new episode. It's clever entertainment.

From that, I caught Wizards of Waverly Place. It's definitely a kids' show, the pacing and plotting are definitely in that genre, but it stood out. I called it "Disney does Surrealism." At times, it could be brilliantly silly, and I loved the character of Alex, who is the anti-Disney-show-heroine--much more Jack Sparrow than Hannah Montana.

These current shows. . .meh. Zeke and Luther is definitely surreal, but it's just not as engaging. Ant Farm, Jessie, Shake It Up and Good Luck Charlie are just. . .more Good Girl dramas.

Is it too much to hope for a Wizard's sequel?

Definitely. I really don't understand why they don't rectify this! I always trawl through my Sky+ and press record on all the old shows I used to like. They're usually on last thing at night or first thing in the morning which is upsetting.

I couldn't agree more. There simply isn't the same quality anymore. They even got rid of Toon Disney, which was the only place we could catch a Mickey Mouse cartoon!

I love Phineas and Ferb it's probably the best show on the disney channel. I also like the new show Gravity Falls, but the rest of their shows range from mediocre to flat out bad.

I LOVED Lizzie McGuire. I really wish there would have been more seasons. The programs now drive me nuts, but Shake It Up and Austin and Ally take the biscuit for being the worst.

It's honestly declined since Hannah Montana was first released. Now almost every show follows the same formula: Stupid parents, kids in charge, stupid jokes, spoiled kids who are either a rockstar, dancer, or some sort of special person. Honestly I guess I can understand the hype of watching someone special do special and amazing feats (Wizards of Waverly Place seems to do it right.) but in all honesty they're pretty much the same show over and over again. I remember shows like Lizzie McGuire and That's so Raven... whenever those kids got into trouble, they got into trouble and wasn't so spoiled that they were treated like they were special. I think it's gotten to the point where the parents in the shows are too easy on the kids, and quite honestly are unrealistic. Would you honestly tell your kids that they weren't wrong when they almost hurt themselves and others?
