Does anyone remember coming home after school on Friday and turning on the TV? Kicking back on the couch watching That's so Raven, Even Stevens, Boy Meets World, Kim Possible, Smart Guy, Sister, Sister, Chip n' Dale, House of Mouse, Famous Jet Jackson, So Weird, Bug Juice and many many more. I don't mean to sound condencending but I feel sorry for those who grew up watching shows like Hannah Montana, the Jonas Brothers, Shake It Up, Ant Farm, Austin and Ally, Wizards of Waverly Place, Jessie, and other current stupid shows. They aren't even funny! My sister loves that show Austin and Ally and I look at her as if she is crazy. The only reason why she watches it is because apparently there is a lot of romance on it. What the heck? That is just sad. Disney used to be a channel for everyone to enjoy. Even adults enjoyed watching the "old Disney" However, ever since 2004 when Anne Marie Sweeney took over ABC/Disney networks everything went down hill. She basically turned Disney into a tweeny pop music channel filled with snobby talentless actors/actress trying to get fame. It is sad how Disney brainwashes all these little kids, thinking that life is that wonderful and that we can all become famous dancers and singers. Really? Let's be real here. Half of all these kids won't become famous. They'll be lucky just to find a job these days. Disney before had shows where people dealt with real problems. They had movies that talked about drunk driving, smoking, and even sex! However, the shows talked about it in a way that made you learn morals about these certain topics. Justcompare the kids from before and kids today. When I was growing up I knew what was right and what was wrong and Disney taught that to me. It's okay to talk "real" sometimes. Kids need to know! These new shows try to sugar coat everything and make it seem that life is nothing but cookies and cream. Let's be real and stop leaving kids naive. Like really?? And is it just me or have you noticed the change in how they dress? In older shows like Lizzie MCguire, Even Stevens, So Weird, Smart Guy etc. they did not dress like freakin super stars and models. They dressed like regular kids because they were regular kids! Why do these large network companies feel like teens have to dress fashionable and perfect?

It doesn't make sense at all. Now you have all these little stupid girls thinking they can be Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez and don't you dare talk crap about them either because you will get a lot of hate messages like: "U r stuwpid! Ur just Jelouz bcuz u arnt cutttee lke silena Gomez r Mily cryus!" It's like learn how to spell first before you insult someone. That just makes you look more dumb and naive. Disney really needs to change their tatics if they want to set a better example for these kids. Half of the people who play on Disney look eighteen but are really thirteen and fourteen. why does Disney insist that these little girls need to wear make up and dress like prostitutes? What type of kids is Disney trying to attract? Sluts? Not only are these shows stupid but half of the stars can't sing or act. The thing tha's really funny is that majority of them do their own theme song because Disney is too stingy to hire an actual professional singer. They have to let their Disney stars sing. What happened to the days where Disney stars didn't sing their own theme song? and when a Disney star did sing their theme song they actually knew how to sing. For instance, Raven did her theme song because she actually knew how to sing. Hilary Duff didn't sing her theme song, Shia LaBeouf didn't sing his theme song on Even Stevens, Ben Savage didn't sing his theme song on Boys Meets World. They got actual singers to do their song! Why can't the new Disney? I just shake my head when I'm flipping through the channel and can no longer watch Smart Guy, House of Mouse, or Goofy. Why the heck would you still have the Mickey Mouse Logo at the bottom of the screen if you don't even play Mickey mouse anymore? Is it supposed to be some kind of sympathy token?? Get a grip Sweeney and just retire already.
I understand that this is a new generation and styles change, but there is a difference between styles changing and just plan horrible shows. If you look back on Lizzie MCguire they had episodes dealing with eating disorders and people who watched it didn't freak out and report the episode to Disney Channel headquarters. I bet if the episode ran today there will be so many uptight, closed-minded parents yapping about how they don't approve of their child watching shows about people going through eating disorders, yet they approve of their kids watching bratty teens who want to be celebrities and all they do is sing and wine about their love life. Of course shows back then had romance but it wasn't to the point that that was all they day dreamed about. They weren't teens trying to become these unrealistic super stars.
I also find annoying how Disney repeatedly uses the laugh box every second. Is it really that funny because all I hear are crickets.
I just hate how everyone portrays themselves as these hot, perfect teen celebs trying to make it in the music industry and they don't have a lick of talent.
I don't see how people can watch this network anymore, are you really that bored? Go watch something else or read a book. I don't have time to watch shows that make it seem as if they are hot teens who think they're talented. I'd rather watch a dog pee than watch Disney stars talk about how they want to be famous singers. I'm just saying.

I think Disney should make a network for old shows and classic Mickey Mouse episodes. New Disney sucks and they all dress older for their age. R.I.P. Old Disney.

I know this is ur opinion, but that was the old times. Disney is doing this to please people. And all u do is complain? And the people can dress the way they want to. Well yeah I also miss the old shows, but I'm not gonna hate the new Disney. If u think it's bad, then watch something else. Kaii that was my opinion.

It's a two way street. You can't get mad at what I write especially on my blog. You already knew what to have expected when coming here.
