Do You Remember These Animated ABC Shows from the Early 2000s?
I remember this list of shows from their airing on Toon Disney. However, they each aired first on ABC, either on their Saturday morning block or throughout the day. Some later episodes would then be originally aired on Toon Disney, but they all started on ABC in the early 2000s. Needless to say, I hope they all make it to Disney's streaming service.
Lloyd in Space
Lloyd in Space was just a fun show to watch. It focused on an alien named Lloyd and his life. It showed us his family and friends as they get into various mishaps and shenanigans. It wasn’t the greatest show per se, but it was a good show that I never hear people talk about. It originally aired during the One Saturday Morning block and ended after 40 episodes.
The Weekenders is the one show on this list that I have on rare occasions heard people mention online. It focused on a group of 4 friends and was a fantastic show about friendship. As the name suggests, the episodes typically took place over the weekend. One of the most radical things about this show is that the characters had more than one outfit! It lasted for 39 episodes typically divided into two segments each and went from 2000 to 2004. Like Lloyd in Space, this show started on One Saturday Morning before moving to Toon Disney. One difference though, is that The Weekenders got new episodes after being moved to Toon Disney in 2002.
Fillmore! is a show that I really only hear about when I find Disney fan art that reaches into their more extensive catalog. The show follows a safety patrol officer, Fillmore (Orlando Brown), and his partner Ingrid (Tara Strong). The genius of the show was the fact that it was just like those crime shows adults watch but set in a school. X Middle School was written to work like a city. The Safety Patrol were cops, the principal was the mayor, etc. It was freaking genius! Maybe things have changed, but back when I was a member of my elementary school’s Safety Patrol, it was nothing like this. Fillmore! Originally ran on ABC and ran from 2002 to 2004 for 26 episodes.
