Continuing to reminisce on days of Disney past, FREEFORM is throwing a THATS SO THROWBACK programming event this week through Friday.
Showcasing shows such as Lizzie McGuire, That’s So Raven, and Kim Possible, it promises to be a fun throwback to not-so-distance Disney past for college students and young millennial. The programming block runs from midnight (yes, that’s 12am) through 2am Monday through Friday.
Plus, each Friday this month, there will be a special Disney Channel Original Movie screening at the midnight timeslot.
Here’s the scheduling:
Monday – Thursday
LIZZIE MCGUIRE (12:00 – 12:30 a.m. EDT)
“Lizzie McGuire” is a live-action sitcom about 13-year-old Lizzie McGuire and her best friends Miranda and Gordo navigating through the roller-coaster existence of a middle schooler. Every day is a popularity contest, every class is a crisis and on top of everything else, Lizzie has to deal with her annoying little brother Matt, and a mom who means well despite her nosey tendencies. You always know what Lizzie is thinking, and if she can’t quite say it, you can be sure her animated alter ego will.
THAT’S SO RAVEN (12:30 – 1:00 a.m. EDT)
“That’s So Raven” is a hit live-action sitcom about Raven Baxter, a winsome teen whose ability to glimpse flashes of the future often gets her into hot water. Getting her out (or sometimes into) these predicaments are best friends Eddie and Chelsea. Allowing her flights of fancy — yet eager to keep her feet on the ground – are her parents. And then there’s precocious kid brother Cory, who is both an annoyance and invaluable resource to his big sis.
HANNAH MONTANA (1:00 – 1:30 a.m. EDT)
“Hannah Montana” is a live-action comedy series that follows typical teen Miley Stewart, her older brother Jackson, songwriter and manager dad Robby Ray, and her best friend Lilly. Unbeknownst to her friends and classmates, Miley has a secret double life – she is the world famous pop star Hannah Montana. Miley questions whether she really has the best of both worlds and if she can continue with her alter-ego, Hannah Montana, or leave it behind forever to be an ordinary girl.
KIM POSSIBLE (1:30 – 2:00 a.m. EDT)
“Kim Possible” follows the comedic action-adventures of a typical high school girl who, in her spare time, saves the world from evil villains. Along with her best friend Ron Stoppable; his pet, a naked mole rat named Rufus; and their webmaster buddy Wade, who feeds them vital information via a special Kimmunicator device, this girl-next-door turned superhero foils archenemies around the globe. Then it’s back to her family and homework.
