A thread for the many sitcoms on Disney Channel as I don't think there's enough interest on here to warrant a thread for each

But, does anyone watch them?

Another vote for Phil of the Future.

I wonder how many remember The Sinbad Show, The Torklesons or Thunder Alley?

I liked That's So Raven, Lizzie Mguire, Hannah Montana, Wizards of Waverley Place and Sonny With A Chance but I think I've grown out of Disney now and they don't really make good shows anymore but I do occasionally watch Shake It Up.

Only watch goodluck Charlie .... Can't stand ant farm, Austin and allie and all those new shows.


That's so raven, proud family, Lizzie McGuire, wizards of Waverley, phil of the future, Hannah montan were the best shows and once that ended Disney hasn't really been the same( opinion not fact)

Do animated ones count? Because 'Gravity Falls' on Disney XD is a belter of a show.

That's So Raven, Smart Guy, Phil Of The Futre, Boy Meets World, Lizzie McGuire, Life With Derek, Even Stevens, and a bunch of others that were on Disney Channel pre 07. Those were the golden years. Cartoons were good too. Kim Possible, Proud Family, etc. DCOMs were good then as well like Brink, Under Wraps, Smart House, The Thirteenth Year, and many more. Aww now nostalgia has set in...

I love Disney sitcoms, past and present.

Good Luck Charlie is my guilty pleasure, as old as I am. Jessie is pretty good too, I'm evening liking Dog with a Blog!
I don't really like Shake It Up. I agree that Gravity Falls is a good show - it's very funny!
I'm too old to be watching them, but I don't care.

Don't even get me started on the old shows. Lizzie McGuire, Even Stevens, That's So Raven - that was the decade!

The ones i remember enjoying are 'Honey, I Shrunk the Kids', Teen Angel, Even Stevens, Smart Guy and Dinosaurs. Not a fan of the new stuff, though i can tolerate The Wizards of Waverly Palace and Good Luck Charlie.

I've watched the ones in the past few years as my daughter is a huge fan (although she has started to be drawn to Nickelodeon and the likes of iCarly, Victorious and Alien Surf Girls). We've seen all the various incarnations of Suite Life, Hannah Montana, Ant Farm, Cory in the House, Shake it Up, Jessie and so on. You see the same episode time and time again but actually when a new ones on I'm quite keen to see it. An advert was on recently for new episodes and I asked my daughter if she had set it to record.

I think I once read that the Disney studio had the largest output of sitcoms these days.

Good Luck Charlie is very well done, and I enjoy the surreal scenes that appear at the end. Sonny with a Chance was also great until her meltdown, So Random wasn't as good as it lost the back story element and gained a really annoying person.

I never liked The Wizards of Waverley Place because the lead character (played by Selena Gomez) was so unlikeable. She had so many negative character traits (selfishness, lazyness, and so on) my parent-ness made me worry about her suitability as a role model.

It's also interesting seeing the production line their stars go through; first they show up as a bit part in another sit com, then they get a recurring role in someone else's show, then a series of their own/original disney movie (the order of these two seems to change now and again), then the lead in their own series, then a storyline where they join a band, then a single of their own followed by the album and them they either become film stars or music stars (or have a meltdown...although at times that looks like a career discision too).

Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgins, Brigit Mendler, Demi Lovato, Ashley Tisdale, Debby Ryan, Miley Cyrus and so on.

The men seem to have a similar production line but their only hope for an ending is asa film star as they generally miss out the music element.


(I prefer the cartoons though, Phineas and Ferbs and Gravity Falls are both superb as was Kim Possible back in the day).

Oh, and it's not one that's made by Disney but it is shown on their channel so I also recommend My babysitter's a Vampire.

Most of the storylines are stolen from Buffy (Cheerleaders Witches, Inca Priestess, ghosts of dead students who possess the leads, vampire cars that eat squirrels and so on), but it's very well done.

All right, the car/squirrel thing wasn't buffy...that was from the film "I bought a Vampire Motorcycle".

That's So Raven and Lizzie McGuire were the last ones I liked. Before that, I did enjoy Smart Guy and a the ABC sitcoms they used to show: Boy Meets World, Teen Angel, Dinosaurs, Home Improvement.

I never really got into Phil of the Future, Wizards, Suite Life and their more recent shows. My brother who is a couple of years younger did, but I think it was too late for me at that point.

I love good luck Charlie, i'm far too old for it but I don't care, my excuse is that I watch it with the kids I babysit for. Amy Duncan is hilarious!
