"Bachpan wale shows" the early 2000s kids miss!

Updated: Sep 10

A childhood sans Netflix , Prime and ipads is probably the best thing that could happen to the early 2000s kids. A few shows gripped the whole friend group to the television screen at the exact same time and were a topic of discussion the next day in school.

Now we have the best shows and the best devices yet the magic of some old shows still has a special place in our hearts.


1. Phineas and Ferb


Accept it or not, we all enjoyed Phineas and Ferb and wished for those lambi garmi ki chuttiyan. Hogayi wish poori?


2000s kids shows


This show was way better than the cartoons that the kids watch these days and even though the series of events was predictable yet it never got boring and by the way WHERE IS PERRY?


The only thing i disliked about the show was their portrayal of Indian kids. Ah! Confused? Remember Baljeet - the Indian kid who ONLY knew Maths.

NOT ALL INDIANS LOVE MATHS.



Where to watch it now? Disney + Hotstar


2. Pogo's M.A.D / Disney's Art Attack


Your love for art was one thing and your love for this show was another.


2000s kids shows

Yes, yes. Yaad aaya?


I really loved seeing Rob create awesome stuff and obviously tried a couple of D.I.Ys though it turned out to be a Destroy It Yourself experiment.

But this man surely made our childhood awesome. I never see kids these days watching shows like these.

You can check his Youtube channel - Mad stuff with Rob if you liked his show.


Also , do you guys remember Disney's Art Attack?

3. The Suite life of Zack and Cody


Disney really used to offer us really really cool , fun shows and "The Suite Life of Zack and Cody" was definitely one such show. A single mom, notorious twins in a five star hotel creating all sorts of mess.

Also, we had an Indian version of the show a few years later called "The Suite life of Karan and Kabir" which was not at all bad. It was literally a scene by scene copy of the original show starring Shruti Seth, Tara Sutaria and Shivshakti Sachdev who are now really popular faces.

4. Wizards of Waverly place


2000s kids shows

Saste jokes, wizards , magic , light hearted content, ordinary actors who are now stars. oh! did I just sum up an early 2000s show?


Who knew Selena would become such a sensation? At one point, she was the most followed person on Instagram.


Coming back to the show, the show really had some funny, entertaining episodes and I hate to say this but I miss these light hearted entertaining shows with all these weird magical elements. WHERE HAS THE MAGIC GONE?

And since we are talking about magic, do you remember this show?

This show was such a hit back in the day. This year we all need a little magic. Don't we?
