It’s been eight years since That’s So Raven ended, but we’re still thinking of the days when Disney programming was actually funny. (Kids these days really don’t know what they’re missing.)
Now that Raven Symoné has added co-host of The View to her impressive résumé, the actress is using her powers for good. The highlight of her time on the talk show so far was this week’s That’s So Raven cast reunion. Orlando Brown (Eddie), Anneliese van der Pol (Chelsea) and Kyle Massey (Corey) all came together to reminisce about the old days.
It turns out, the hit show could’ve been completely different. For starters, Raven was initially playing the sidekick in the show, then entitled “Absolutely Pyschic.” When the format changed, Anneliese had worked with Raven in some capacity, but didn’t get the role of Chelsea until Raven insisted they give it to her.
The reunion was a bright moment in Raven’s career on the show, which has been plagued with controversy (that’s typical of almost any co-host on the show, though). Watch the videos below to see a surprise appearance by one of the former cast members and more behind-the-scenes details, like who was the biggest drama queen on set.
