You saw what the world would be like sans Miley Cyrus — CONCLUSION: It’d be far less… interesting, to say the least — but what about life without the network she originally came from, Disney Channel? It may’ve never crossed your mind, but we’d be living in a far different place if not for Mickey’s home ground. Here, let us explain (in GIFs):
There would’ve been no girl to explain the truth of teenage angst on television in the early ’00s. (Thanks for all of your hard work, Lizzie McGuire.)
Or comic introduction to Shia LaBeouf. If not for Even Stevens, he’d probably just be known for running for his life. In every. Single. Film. Think about it.
Would you even know the faces of these silhouettes? For reference, from left to right: Nick Jonas, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Joe Jonas, Selena Gomez and Kevin Jonas.
And forget about Jemi, Niley or Nelena coming into existence. (Not to say any of them lasted.)
And where would we have gotten all those life lessons from?
Aspirations of living in a hotel (or on deck) wouldn’t sound as ‘suite.’
“These people? Who are these people exactly?” That’s what we’d be saying about the following:
The Nickelodeon kids — besides Ariana Grande — would finally be able to get their time in the spotlight (and on the radio).
DCOM wouldn’t stand for Disney Channel Original Movie because, obviously, they wouldn’t be around. That’d mean no High School Musical!
And, finally, Girl Meets World would have nowhere to live, meaning Cory & Topanga would just have to live in our memories. Forever.
