Let’s be honest. We are all trying to drag ourselves through this last semester and we are wishing we could go back in time and act like we didn’t have a care in the world. That first test probably made you go into a daze, studying is becoming too stressful, projects are making you livid while the clubs and organizations you’re trying to stay a part of are waying you down. All this is happening but all you want to do is lay in bed while shoving your face with junk food. The only thing missing is the old TV shows we all grew up watching. “Nickelodeon” and “Disney Channel” were the two channels that made my childhood everything and I’m sure most ‘90s and ‘00 babies can agree. So here are the top eight that most of us wonder if they will ever return:


All That (April 16, 1994 – October 22, 2005)

With this show happening on Nickelodeon, you were promised to roll on the floor laughing. It was a show that spit out random sketches of comedy short clips that introduced us to major stars such as Nick Cannon, Amanda Bynes, Kenan Thompson, Kel Mitchel and many more. Even though we do have the similar hit show “Saturday Night Live,” it would be great to the old cast members to reunite and give us the hits such as “Good Burger” and “Ask Ashley.”

Even Stevens (June 17, 2000 – June 2, 2003)

This show followed the life of two siblings who lived in a suburban California neighborhood. What made this show such a hit was the personalities of the siblings, Ren (played by Christy Carlson Romano) and Louis (played by Shia LaBeouf). The way their characters would clash with each other made single children glad they were the only ones. Romano, the overachieving and uptight older sister, is now a mother to Isabella who was born on Christmas Eve in 2016. Despite having a kid, she has said that she would be open to a reboot of the hit Disney Channel show “Even Stevens.” Romano hasn’t spoken with LaBeouf, little brother Louis, in years. “There will always be that connection, having been so close as long as we were,” said Romano “I wonder if he would do [a reboot], because he’s so interesting with his creative choices.”

Lizzie McGuire (January 12, 2001 – February 14, 2004 )

If you want a little animated self, would that make you crazy? Well in this case, Lizzie McGuire was the craziest. This show followed the adventures of Ms. McGuire whose feelings would be expressed by her animated self. Although the show has been off Disney Channel since 2004, Hilary Duff continues to stay busy. Duff has had a son named Luca in 2012, continues to act on the show Younger and has been working on her singing career. In 2014, Duff has reportedly said she would be open to have a reunion. “I mean, so many people loved [Lizzie],” said Duff, “I loved her. Honestly, working on that show, I got so strong with my physical comedy and all the things that they would throw at me.”

Kim Possible (June 7, 2002 – September 7, 2007)

So who doesn’t still use the phrase “call me, beep me, if you wanna reach me” when possible? Kim Possible was a huge role model for every 12-year-old who wanted to stop crime and walk the halls of high school with their trusty sidekick/best friend, along with a naked mole rat. And let’s not forget those tasty burritos Disney Channel would tease us with.

Danny Phantom (April 3, 2004 – August 24, 2007)


A teenage boy who has the ability to turn into a ghost and is able to save the evil spirits that are released from his parent’s basement is definitely one of my all-time favorites. The show brought humor, characters that create a print on the mind and great enemies Danny had to face. Since the show was so spontaneous, yet still having the follow through of each episode, bringing the show back to Disney Channel would be great. The show had many unanswered questions to the characters that is will have the old fans crying for the conclusion and the new fans crying for more.

Drake & Josh (January 11, 2004 – September 16, 2007)

Come on, Nickelodeon. Who wouldn’t love to see a grown-up version of this show. “Drake and Josh” was hilarious, yet slightly relatable about two completely opposite teenage brothers that learn to deal with each other’s kirks while trying to out-smart their younger, evil sister… MEGAN!

Ned’s Declassified: School Survival Guide (September 12, 2004 – June 9, 2007)

Although this show was not my main priority at the time, it was pretty fun to watch. Between Cookie’s craziness and Ned’s spontaneous ideas, it did keep me entertained. Nickelodeon should bring this show back so we can see how Ned is surviving the adulthood. Maybe Ned’s guide for high school wasn’t as helpful as we would have hoped but who says we can’t use a little input on our future?

Zoey 101 (January 9, 2005-  May 2, 2008)

We all wanted to experience the life of PCA. The sun soaking your skin, the breeze through your hair, that’s all we ‘90s and ‘00s babies wished to feel when we would watch the show. “Zoey 101” made all of us want to go to a boarding school so what would be better than a reunion. Although, in 2015 there was a short clip, which shows what Zoey said on her video from the all well-known time capsule episode. There has not been any mention of the Nickelodeon show coming back.
