44 Iconic Disney Channel Things From The 2000s

0

Watching Disney Channel is an interesting experience because even the commercials talk about… Disney. And Disney Channel in the 2000s was just an iconic era.

So let’s take a trip down memory lane and reminisce about some of the best little Disney Channel things from the 2000s:

1.

The old DCOM intro with kids jumping over film reels…

Obviously, this had to be the first. Watching this kid jump over the film reel literally fills me with serotonin. Every time you saw this intro, you knew you were going to have a great night.

2.

…and the last one that sailed through, like, movie “sets” of various DCOMs:

Not as good, but alas, all good things come to an end.

3.

express yourself (where Disney Channel stars would talk about, like, their family or America):

disney channel

My favorite part about it was how random and expansive the topics were. One would be like Kyle Massey talking about his best friend, then the next would be Hilary Duff talking about the state of America.

4.

Friends for Change (where Disney Channel stars gave public service announcements about the environment)…

5.

… and the special program “Lights, camera, act” that they produced:

I can’t believe it’s been 13 years since Demi, Selena and Miley stopped global warming.

6.

BLAM! (where the Mickey Mouse characters were badly injured as a guy yelled “BLAM!”):

disney channel

I still don’t know what “blam” means or why we were so thrilled to see serious injuries happen.

7.

3 Minute Disney Game Show (where kids would be asked about recent DCOMS):

8.

Brian O’Brian (where a guy named Brian was indulging in shenanigans):

And every time you looked and said, “Isn’t Arwin The Suite Life of Zack and Cody?”

9.

The classic “You’re Watching Disney Channel” with Disney stars drawing ears:

Clips for Radio Disney:

Disney Channel was practically MTV.

11.

…especially covers of classic Disney songs by the likes of the Jonas Brothers and Ashley Tisdale:

Never forget the JoBros rock cover of “Poor Unfortunate Souls”. I should have cast them in live action as Ursula.

12.

Shorty McShorts:

These were quite ephemeral (ha – understood?).

13.

Tiny (where creepy stop-motion bugs would do things):

14.

musical high school sing along…

My poor parents in the other room listening to me scream the wrong words…

15.

…and the dancing version…

16.

…and the pop-up version:

Disney Channel Games:

Better than the Olympics and the Superbowl combined.

Imagine that with Tom Morrow 2.0 (where a robot would talk about Disney rides):

I still have nightmares about that guy.

19.

cool animals (where kids would literally talk about their bird or goldfish for a minute):

I so wanted to be on it.

20.

Show your stuff (where kids would show off their collections, like Maddy and her iconic snow globes!):

disney channel

We all aspired to be as cool as Maddy.

21.

Skip the plate (where Brenda Song was talking about international cuisine):

disney channel

(French accent) “Julian! It’s not a red pepper, it’s a hot pepper! And if we put it in the ratatouille, it will be too hot to eat!”

22.

Shaun the Sheep shorts:

23.

be connected (where kids would introduce Disney video games):

24.

Really short report (where kids would promote DVD releases):

For some reason the names of the hosts were weather puns.

25.

Cinema surfers (where kids would give a behind-the-scenes look at Disney movies):

26.

As the bell rings (where Demi Lovato and her friends hang out between classes)…

27.

Disney 411 (which gave the latest news from Disney):

37.
