When you talk about the year 2004, it doesn’t really feel like that long ago – it definitely doesn’t feel like 10 years ago. In fact, even you talk about the things that happened in 2004, it sort of feels like they didn’t really happen a decade ago.
Take, for example, these TV shows that ended in 2004. Has it really been 10 years since we’ve seen a new episode of Friends?! I mean, really? That just doesn’t seem fair. This was apparently a really sad year for television, as a ton of amazing shows aired their last, iconic episodes. This might make you feel old, but it’s still worth knowing (mainly so that I don’t feel old alone). Here are 10 TV shows you won’t believe ended 10 years ago.
Lizzie McGuireI can't believe Lizzie McGuire happened so long ago! This show was one of my absolute favorites - I'm still a huge fan of Hilary Duff today! I mean, do you guys follow her on Instagram? I feel like she is really the grown-up version of Lizzie with her fabulous hair and cute style. Anyway, we all learned a lot from Lizzie, and I know I'm not alone when I say I miss this show a lot.
RugratsRugrats is maybe the only show out there about talking babies that actually held my interest. I mean, how can you go wrong with a show like this one? They have even inspired some seriously cute outfits! This show was a little bit weird sometimes, but it also reminds me of the time that Nickelodeon was great - and I really miss that.
Hey Arnold!There is so much to say about Hey Arnold! It was seriously such a great show... I can't believe it ended before I was even done with high school! Sometimes I am still surprised that there aren't any new episodes, and I miss all of the great and memorable moments. On second thought, can we just have a whole show about Stoop Kid?
Rocket PowerAhhhh, I loved Rocket Power! It was everything I wanted in a cartoon - it took place in California, it was about skateboarding and surfing, and there were always images of a sunny beach. Right up my alley. The super cool characters even inspired some beach-chic outfits. I firmly believe this show ended way too soon.
The Wild ThornberrysI was never that into The Wild Thornberrys, which is surprising, because it was a show about a girl who talks to animals and that is basically my dream. This show taught us a lot though, and it wasn't all about animals. I think it needs to come back so I can get into it, no?
CatDogI am NOT a fan of CatDog. Just looking at this picture makes me cringe. It's one of the cartoons that I'm most afraid of, and that's really saying something, because I'm afraid of a lot of cartoons. There was just something really creepy about the way it was drawn, and the fact that someone decided to mix a cat and dog together in this very awkward way. I have to say, I'm glad it ended 10 years ago.
FriendsThis one probably makes me the most sad. I wasn't allowed to actually watch Friends when it was on, but I got into it during college, when I was procrastinating my schoolwork. I LOVE this show. When I finished watching it, I genuinely felt like I lost some of my own friends. It makes me seriously depressed that I will never see a new episode of it ever again, because it's pure gold.
Johnny BravoTo be honest, I don't think I've ever sat down to watch a full episode of Johnny Bravo. My brother was into this show, though, and I know a lot of other people were too.
Sex and The CityAgain, I wasn't allowed to watch Sex and The City when it was actually on the air, but I got into it when I was in college and had already finished up Friends and felt like I needed meaning to my life again (JK. Sort of.). Anyone who was too young to watch it when it was on should watch it now. SATC is funny, wild, a little bit ridiculous, and a total guilty pleasure.
FraiserOkay, so this one is a little old, but can you believe it's been 10 years since your parents have ignored you because they were watching this show? I can't.
Which of these are you most surprised by? Which TV show was your favorite? What did I forget? Tell me in the comments!
