The Disney Days – I


Those days still vividly flash through my mind today when I scampered about in my canvas-shoes and frilly pink shirts, indulging the chimeras of being Cinderella or Snow White. Honestly, who doesn’t! Disney shows were, at one point in time, our source of relief and our guilty pleasures. The romanticized, fictional world of Disney always had reeled us into its imperfectly flawless illusory dreams and fantasies. Today, even when we have ‘outgrown’ the ‘Disney phase’ and Disney channel has gone off-air, we still sometimes yearn for those cute, children’s dramas and movies to whisk our mind off the worries brewing in the real world. So here’s a toast to the Disney shows of the old golden days.


Wizards of Waverly Place

Anyone who has heard of Disney Channel is bound to have had heard of the extremely popular Disney sitcom Wizards of Waverly Place. A TV show about the fictional world of wizards living in Waverly Place, this show featured prominent celebrities and actors like Selena Gomez, David Henrie and Jake T. Austin. Selena flawlessly played the role of the devious wizard Alex while David and Jake played the roles of Alex’s well-meaning yet sometimes devious, sometimes clueless wizard siblings Justin and Max.



Disney Movie- High School Musical

This hit Disney movie stars, famous actors like Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale. A world-hit movie, this film sheds light on high school life revolving around basketball star Troy (Zac) and academic star Gabriella (Vanessa) and their story of falling in love while pursuing a diverging interest in the musical world.




Mickey Mouse and the Club House

How can anyone forget the world-famous show ‘Mickey Mouse and The Club House’? This show takes us into the animated world of the Mickey Mouse and his companions and the adventures they go on both inside and outside their clubhouse. Not to forget, their overly cheesy title-song: It’s the Mickey Mouse and Club House, come inside, it’s fun inside! So don’t be afraid to knock on the door of their fun Club House because there’s a whole world of adventures in there awaiting to sweep you off the floor.




You can still find these shows on YouTube. Here are a few links to some of the shows.
