Nostalgia is a strange and cool feeling we get when we reminisce about something from out past, be it old sweets, movies, or in this case, TV shows. I'm 19 years old, so most of these shows will be mid/late '90s with a lot of '00s also. To this day, I remember most of the lyrics to nearly all these intros! Anyway, let's teleport ourselves back to all these classic TV shows.

1. 'Lizzie McGuire'

If an alien visited earth and asked what the early 2000s were like, then you need not look further that these mere 40 seconds of the intro to Lizzie McGuire. This show ran for 3 years and also brought a movie along with it. I didn't watch this one as religiously as the rest on this list, but nevertheless, this was one of the biggest at the time. Check out how Hilary Duff looks now, below.

2. 'Phil of the Future'

This Disney Channel show only ran for two years, but it definitely seemed like a lot more looking back. Nevertheless, this theme tune is one that you instantly remember from watching the trailer. Check out what the actress for Keely Teslow's character looks like now!

3. 'The Suite Life of Zack and Cody'

This show was probably my favorite back in the day. This was one I could just watch countless hours of each day and not get bored. The spin off show, Suite Life on Deck didn't do it for me though — they lost me when that came out. I still remember every episode perfectly: I could be quizzed on it. Did any of you guys watch Suite Life on Deck? Check out the twins now, below.

4. 'Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide'

Another fantastic show from the '00s that got us through our school days. The plot was simple: Ned and his friends had a book where he wrote in it the various ways to get through everyday problems in school. Whether it be his love life, exams, or bullies, he had it in his little book. Definitely one of the best intros of the lot, for sure. Check out what Cookie looks like now — he seems to have changed the most!

5. 'Recess'

Disney's Recess went for a solid four years and amassed itself as one of the definitive kids' shows of the late '90s and early '00s. With very diverse and lovable characters, this show was one of the best ones to watch if you wanted to waste away a day on the couch as a kid. The intro is one of the most recognizable on the list and I'd love to know if there's anybody out there who doesn't know it! Check out one artist's interpretation of what the guys would look like now.

6. 'Ben 10'

This one is probably for more of the younger people out there, but it's a nostalgic trip all the same! It was a funky animation that was a lot of fun because of how many different aliens Ben 10 could turn into! I was never really crazy about the show, but I still know the intro 100%, so that's gotta count for something.

So there you have it guys. In case you're wondering where the likes of Spongebob, That's So Raven, or those are, this list is for the ones you probably haven't seen in a while. Every once in a while I see somebody take to YouTube to reminisce about old TV intros and fail to search for the gems that are on this list! Let me know which ones you used to love below.


Which one is your favorite?
