Subject: The Downfall of The Disney Channel...

Written By: Maddie's The Boss on 05/10/05 at 5:04 pm

This is my last rant on The Disney Channel.  ;)



Does anybody remember when Disney aired classic Disney movies, cartoons, shows and none of that "Zoog" stuff came around until 1998, which is when they started to go downhill.


Granted, I disliked "Avanloea" (sp?), "Ocean Girl", and "The New Mickey Mouse Club", but I loved watching "Mouse Tracks", "Mousterpiece Theatre", "Walt Disney Presents", and "The Ink & Paint Club".  :)


Yes, it did started as Pay Per View channel, but I remember watching it in my relative's house.


Now it's just tween garbage like "Lizzie McGuire" & "Kim Possible".



Another great network gone bad: MTV, which we all agree on  :P

I can't remember the name of a cartoon that aired on the Disney channel around the same time as the Gummi Bears and Duck Tails. If anyone can help me I would appreciate it, Please post it on this message board. The cartoon I believe was called the Racoons there was a mayor, and all the towns people and there were 3 main characters and they were kids. They all had long noses kind of like Gonzo from the muppets. Like I said I think they were called the Racoons but I am not sure, it also was on when Disney played cheesy music videos and the one that I remember was called I need a hair cut, I really need a hair cut. So please I need help to remember what it was called if any body knows please help me!!!!!!!!! Thank you :D

You hit the hammer on the nail.

Nickelodeon, MTV, Disney it's all gone down hill.  Sci-Fi is a mixed feeling for me.

I think Lifetime has gone down hill as well. I miss it's showing strange B movies compared to all of it's original work now.

Which is another big pet-peeve of mine. I miss the good old days when TV stations would actually show real movies, now a days everyone is showing "A USA original movie" or a "Disney Original Movie".  They're ok, even good sometimes, but "Original movies" are getting on my nerves.

I liked the early Zoog stuff, from like 1999-2002, but that's because that's when I gave up Nick for it (around Y2K).

I've never been big on classic Disney, although it's certainly higher quality than most Zoog disney.  EXCEPT EVEN STEVENS!  :D
