The 90s generation was blessed with some of the very best television. From Lizzie Mcguire to Phil of the Future, our generation got the best of Disney. We got stellar theme songs, the greatest moral lessons, and by far some of the greatest characters with Lizzie, Phil, and of course, Raven Symone.
That’s So Raven was a show that made our childhood that much better. Everything the fledging psychic said and did was hysterical. Her costumes even had our parents laughing, and her lessons stayed with us. For example, the episode where she walks a runway to show that she is comfortable not being a size 2 (Yay, for positive body image).
Raven was one of those characters we could always relate to. Her quirky friends, obnoxious brother, loving parents, and her own struggles were all things that we have and continued to experience. She wasn’t perfect – in fact she always got herself into trouble, but she always learned her lesson in the end. Okay, not always—but most of the time.
Life would not be the same without Raven Baxter.
[UPDATE: Three years later we are STILL missing Raven — and according to Variety, actress Raven Symone has left the view to further develop a That’s So Raven spin-off. According to Variety, the spin-off will follow Raven as a divorced mother of two preteens — one of which who has inherited her psychic abilities. Yeah, we know, we don’t know what to do with ourselves either. THE NOSTALGIA. IT HURTS.]
