When Ant and Dec confirmed the news that ‘SM:TV Live’ is making a comeback to celebrate the show’s 20th anniversary in August 2018, it got us reminiscing.
There are plenty of tween shows we’d secretly love to see back on our screens and, even though the chances are pretty slim, the Geordie duo’s exciting announcement last weekend made us daydream all the same.
Why not comb your hair into a zig-zag parting, pop on some rhinestone-covered bootcut jeans and take a trip down memory lane with us…
You’d be lying if you said you didn’t dream of your school appearing on ’50/50′. But with the dreaming came the sheer panic that, if your school was chosen, you’d been too naughty in class to be picked. Oh the stress.
Lizzie McGuire: The girl who managed to rock crimped/curled/straight hair…all at the same time. But while we had wardrobe envy of real-life Lizzie, played by Hilary Duff, this cannot be said for cartoon Lizzie. Did she EVER change her clothes?
The Powerpuff Girls
Remember a time when ‘The Powerpuff Girls’ ruled? These three lasses had serious sass, plus a shedload of merchandise to boot. Come on, admit it, you had a t-shirt.
Ok, so still technically on our screens via some kids’ channel, but what is ‘Art Attack’ without legendary host Neil Buchanan and The Head? Remember the latter? Slightly freaky, right?
We were ready to pack our bags and move to Orange County during the noughties. ‘The O.C.’ was the programme to watch…and apparently the place to be. If you were fit, American and had a generous wad of cash that is. •sigh•
Dick and Dom in da Bungalow
Like ‘SM:TV’, ‘Dick and Dom in da Bungalow’ was Saturday morning gold. A whole two-hours of LOLs to kick off the weekend – what more could a kid want? Looking back, if it were to return, we’d probs suggest ditching the game ‘Creamy Muck Muck’. Sounds kinda dodge.
Never mind Britney, hands up who wanted to be younger sis Jamie-Lynne Spears growing up? On point fashion and a squad that would rival Taylor Swift’s. Is there anything Zoey 101 didn’t have?
That’s So Raven
We’ve saved the best ’til last because, like ‘SM:TV’, ‘That’s So Raven’ is making a comeback. Yup, that psychic fashionista is returning for a spin-off series, called ‘Raven’s Home’. Raven-Symoné is reprising the lead role and viewers will get to see her going through the challenges of adulthood with her best friend Chelsea Daniels, played by Anneliese van der Pol. Bring. It. On.
