The hit Disney Channel TV show, "That's So Raven," was at the peek of Disney Channel original programming. A story about a teenager who can see into the future and has a killer fashion sense to boot -- sign us up!
Raven Symoné who played Raven, was one of the funniest characters in children's television at the time of their four year run from 2003-2007. We had Raven, Chelsea and Eddie, the three best friends that anyone could have, really.

Anyone else remember rushing home from 6th grade to catch "Raven," "Lizzie McGuire" and "Even Stevens" back-to-back-to-back? We do.
If you remember "That's So Raven," you probably remember Stanley, Eddie's next door neighbor. You know, he was extremely pesky and had a hard core crush on Raven. Well, it's been quite some time since the final episode of "That's So Raven," so we were curious what he's been up to.
Stanely, aka Bobb'e J. Thompson, has stayed extremely busy since his Disney Channel days starring in shows like "Human Giant," playing Tracy Jordan's son in "30 Rock" (personal fave), "For Better or Worse," and most recently, Netflix show, "Clash of the Vampires."
However, this pictures does not do Thompson justice. Just check out some Insta pics below.

Yeah, so to say grown-up is a tremendous understatement.

10 of the best Disney sidekicks ever
Ever curious what Stanley from 'That's So Raven' looks like today? Now is your chance
Where would Simba have been without the help and riduculous banter of Pumbaa and Timon in "The Lion King." The unlikely duo of a meerkat and a warthog made this pair one of the best sidekick duo's in Disney history.
PUMBAA & TIMON THE LION KING (1994)
Dressing up as a male to impersonate a warrior in the Chinese military would have been pretty difficult for Mulan without the help of Mushu: Guardian of the Fa family. Despite Mushu's early failings as a guardian, the feisty dragon was a constant support for Mulan with his sound advice, loving demeanor and fast-thinking in a pinch.
If one must be holed up in a castle with a ghastly beast, it's best to have Cogsworth, Lumiere and Mrs. Potts on your side. Each brought a special sidekick quality to the table. Cogsworth was safe and practical, Lumiere always had romance and Belle's heart on his mind and Mrs. Pott's provided a motherly vibe. The trio were ultimate sidekicks for Belle in "Beaty and the Beast."
Everyone needs a buddy and Flounder was just that for Aerial in "The Little Mermaid." Admittedly, Flounder wasn't always the best sounding board for the red-headed swimmer, but he made a good sidekick since he was always down for an adventure.
What do a hummingbird and a raccoon have in common? They were both besties and sidekicks for indian princess Pocahontas. In the 1995 flick, Meeko and Flit provided just the right amount of comedy without ever saying a word. Now that's tricky.
Any sidekick that will let you float down a river on their tummy is alright by us. Baloo the Bear and Mowgli were the best of pals in "The Jungle Book," and the best part about Balloo was he was always ready to dance and sing. We like that in a sidekick.
Scheming, selfish and funny aren't exactly three words that you'd want in a sidekick, but Abu usually let his conscience take over when he and Aladdin were up to no good. Plus, he busted Aladdin out of a jail, dressed up as an elephant and more in order to help out Ali.
Olaf was an immediate hit with everyone in "Frozen." The inherently happy snowman sprung to magical life in order to help Anna chase down Elsa and help end the snowpocalypse that would have ruined the kingdom. Daring and happy? Talk about a good mix.
High five for Hercules and Pegasus! Not only does the winged horse regularly rescue the Greek god from many precarious situations, he also really cares about Hercules. So much so that he gets a bit jealous when Herc falls head over heels for Meg. But best friends are definitely supposed to do that -- because they have your best interest at heart.
Tinker Bell definitely has a bit of an attitude problem, but she makes up for it by bringing a bit of sparkly magic everywhere she goes in Neverland. Even though she's a bit selfish and has a temper, she proves her worth when she's willing to go down in sparkly flames in order to protect Pan.
