Throw Back Thursday: The Childhood Shows We Love and Miss

It’s no doubt that the TV we watched as kids was the greatest kind of entertainment…ever. Yes, this is quite a bold statement but I’m sure there are few people out there who agree. Nothing on Nickelodeon or Disney Channel nowadays remotely compares to the classics we grew up watching. After all, these shows formed us into the girls we are today… successfully instilling a little fashion sense, confidence and laughter into our lives. Here are a few of those memorable shows that we loved (and still love) so much.  

Lizzie McGuireLizzie McGuire was the high school girl you aspired to be and then some. She had the best friends, went to Rome (single-handedly made herself a pop icon), and just so happened to ROCK the choker necklace. This is what dreams are made of, right?

The Amanda ShowYou laughed at Penelope, cried at Moody’s Point and desperately wanted to be a part of the “Girl’s Room” posse. Oh, and a dancing lobster was the pet you always longed to have. 

Bonus: Amanda Please still exists! Ugh, Amanda Bynes we miss the old you. 

Zoey 101The consistent thought that went through all of our minds while watching: “ Boarding school is THAT cool?!…….MOM!!”. Unfortunately, now we know how far fetched Pacific Coast Academy truly was.

That’s So RavenTo you, there was no one better than the world’s sassiest/ most fashionable psychic teen out there.


All ThatIt was the birthplace of Amanda Bynes, never failed to make you laugh and the skits were the kinds you reenacted with your friends (ie: “Welcome to the Goodburger, home of the Goodburger. Can I take your order?!”)
