Saturtainment: Lizzie McGuire (2001)

Lizzie McGuire, once upon a time, was the flagship series for Disney Channel, which spread out 65 episodes of the series over a 3-year period (2001-04), and made a star out of its lead, Hilary Duff ("Casper Meets Wendy"). Lizzie was a typical teenager facing the usual sort of issues, which were discussed by an animated personification of Lizzie's ID (also Duff). We have to say she turned out pretty well, considering her father was played by Robert Carradine ("Revenge of the Nerds").

The series was repurposed on ABC from 2002-04 as part of its Saturday morning block, which by that time was programmed by Disney Channel. The series then went into syndication in 2006, but that lasted just a year before it was pulled.

Rating: B.
