Why it's one of
our favorites: The Cheetah Girls is a classic coming of age tale about knowing who your true friends are. Also memorable is the great music that Disney always delivers on. Both independence and diversity is celebrated in this Disney Channel original classic. This film encapsulates all of the best elements of Disney Channel programming: great music, a good message, and cheesy fun. The choreography is energetic, and the songs are catchy enough to have you singing along before the final chorus. Not to mention, Raven was basically Disney Cannel royalty during the late 90s, early 2000s, starring in everything from That's So Raven to Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century.
