(from the same people who eventually brought us “The Proud Family”)

Over 8K notes now and people still mentioning the resemblance to The Proud Family (Hint: Read this.), reminiscing about the show, wondering how they missed its existence, and raising critical questions about PoC representation today in other similar media (Disney).

I love it. I’m so happy this took off the way it did. I only wish I had the ability to share the actual series itself with people who are interested.

My favorite episodes are: Rapunzel (Tisha Campbell as Rapunzel with Whoopi Goldberg as the evil Hoodoo Diva, Madam Zenobia. It shits all over Tangled and shows PATF how to do NoLa influenced mysticism right), Goldilocks and the Three Bears (Raven Symoné as the plucky, dreadlocked titular character), The Princess and the Pauper (Raven again with a spin on the Twain tale), White Snow and the Seven Dwarfs (three words: Buffy Sainte-Marie), Rumplestiltskin, The Little Mermaid (Tia Carrera as the titular character), Little Red Happy Coat, and Sleeping Rosita.

So many of these episodes have stood the test of time (particularly Rapunzel, my favorite of the entire series…). Why they aren’t all available on DVD, I couldn’t tell you. :(
