Disney Channel Cartoons That Were Vastly Underrated
The Disney Channel has screened some of the most entertaining kids' cartoons ever made for more than 30 years. These animated series entertain the masses and continue to live on in the memories of the young adults who grew up watching them. Despite this, there are bound to be many great House of Mouse cartoons that have faded into relative obscurity.
Remember the hijinks of Marsupilami, the family fun of The Proud Family, and the space adventures of Buzz Lightyear of Star Command? Who doesn't love a nostalgia-filled trip to the past, where the only concern is whether or not Kim and Ron are going to complete their mission in Kim Possible? Perhaps this reminder will renew your enthusiasm for these long-forgotten classics of Disney Channel past.
Young spies Kim Possible and Ron Stoppable get into trouble and espionage-based adventures in this action/comedy cartoon. One of the show's best characters is a naked mole rat, which is hard to top.
Jake Long is a typical boy growing up in Manhattan who just so happens to have the power to transform into a dragon. American Dragon follows him as he navigates, school, friendships, and the magical world of dragons.
Fans of the film Lilo & Stitch can continue to follow Lilo, Stitch, and their ohana in this animated series that ran from 2003 to 2006. The cartoon features the same fun elements as the movie, while also introducing other extraterrestrial elements and characters. If you missed out on it during its run, it's worth seeking out.
The sidekick characters of Lion King have their own cartoon. While the duo often gets into mischief in Africa, the show takes them around the globe for adventures in the US, Britain, and Spain, among other locales. Timon & Pumbaa is a wacky distraction perfect for after-school viewing.
Buzz Lightyear Of Star Command
Disney capitalized on the massive popularity of Toy Story by creating an animated series starring everyone's favorite space ranger. Buzz Lightyear of Star Command is an action-packed adventure through space featuring the voice of Patrick Warburton as the titular Buzz.
The underappreciated film The Emperor's New Groove became an equally underrated cartoon series. The Emperor's New School follows a dethroned Kuzco as he experiences the trials of school life alongside a cast of wily young students. John Goodman and Patrick Warburton reprise their roles as Pascha and Kronk, respectively.
