Back by popular demand, Disney+ is offering us the chance to catch up with Penny Proud and her family.

The show came to an end in 2005.

After a successful 4 year run, Disney called an end to the popular show. It's almost surprising to see it get picked up again some fifteen years later.

Give the people what they want...

Many people called out Disney+ for not re-releasing old The Proud Family eps when they launched the streaming service with a vast bank of Disney classics.

What was so good about The Proud Family?

Well, firstly it starred the badass Penny Proud who was attempting to navigate the tribulations of high school, as well as the trials of being a teenager, a person of color and a woman.

Penny Proud wasn't afraid of voicing her opinions.

Penny always stood up for what she thought was right. Penny wasn't afraid to call out her friends when they were being fake, call out the football team for not letting girls join, and call out her dad when he was embarrassing.

The show explored Penny trying to understand her heritage.

With a diverse family background, Penny's search for her cultural identity becomes an interesting focal point to the narrative.

Remember the theme tune?

The Proud Family had arguably the best theme tune ever. Destiny's Child and Solange teamed up to sing the iconic title track.

The Proud Family are bringing in subscribers.

Since Disney announced they would be adding The Proud Family to Disney+ and that they would be releasing new episodes in February 2020, the subscribers have been flooding in. Frankly, we can't wait.
