8 Old School Disney Channel Shows That Deserve a Reboot

Many of us grew up with TV shows on Disney Channel, planning our Friday nights around the premiere of every single new Disney Channel Original Movie. We laughed, we cried and we prayed that our secret twin sibling would show up out of nowhere, while simultaneously finding out that our mother was born a leprechaun.

The last few years have given all Disney Channel kids hope with the return of That’s So Raven and Boy Meets World via their respective spinoffs, Raven’s Home and Girl Meets World. (Adult Shawn Hunter, anyone?) If you love baby Sarah Jessica Parker and the Sanderson sisters as much as the rest of the world, you probably jumped for joy when a Hocus Pocus remake was announced. Oh, and who can forget the huge news that the Wildcats will return to East High in High School Musical 4?

Sure, all of these reboots are great, but so many more

Jimmy Fallon Mocks Trump in ‘Nightmare Before Christmas’ Spoof (Video)
With the holiday season in full swing, “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” added some cheer at the expense of President Trump. On Thursday’s show, the largely apolitical program took a poke at the president in a 24-second clip that tied together Trump’s words into a package that criticized his tenure as the Commander-in-Chief. Using various clips from the past year, “Twas the Nightmare Before Trump” has notable lines including “Twas the night before Christmas in Washington D.C/Not a person was working/Especially not me.” Also Read: Jimmy Fallon Impersonates Bruce Springsteen for 'Robert Mueller's Comin' to Town' (Video) Ouch.

Jimmy Fallon Debuts 'Twas the Trump Before Christmas' Video

President Donald Trump got in the Christmas spirit on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon... sort of.

Fallon debuted a mash-up of clips of Trump talking set to music which he dubbed, "Twas the Trump Before Christmas."

In it, Trump "sings": "Twas the night before Christmas in Washington D.C., and not a person was working, but especially not me. When all of sudden, there came a loud 'bing, bing, bong.' And I went to go outside to see what was wrong. And there was Saint Nicholas who started to say, 'Merry Christmas to all, and God bless the United States.'"

Jimmy Fallon does Peanuts parody in the style of CW's Riverdale

  • JoBlo
Riverdale - the cool, sexy version of the Archie comics - is a phenomenon. Merging the squeaky clean characters of Archie, Jughead, Betty, and Veronica into a plot that involves murder, rape, and incest has struck a nerve in the popular consciousness. It was a gamble, but it has seemed to have paid off for the CW. Taking that same template, Jimmy Fallon's The Tonight Show has done the same with Charles Schultz's Peanuts comics. It has murder (with Linus instead of Jason Blossom), the... Read More...

'Detroit': Why Questlove Nearly Passed on Writing the Film's Title Track

'Detroit': Why Questlove Nearly Passed on Writing the Film's Title Track
Detroit is a relentlessly bleak look at the 1967 riots in the Motor City and, specifically, the Algiers Motel incident, during which three young black men were killed by the police. Questlove and his band The Roots provided the end title track, the searing "It Ain't Fair," which opens with gorgeous a cappella singing by Bilal before exploding into fierce raps by The Roots' Black Thought (aka Tariq Trotter).

The Roots, who are the house band for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, created a song that reflects not only on the '67 riots, but also on...

Late-Night Shows Celebrate Doug Jones Victory, "Black Women Who Saved America"

The late-night talk shows taped Tuesday's shows before the results of last night's Alabama Senate race, but that didn't stop the hosts from talking about senator-elect Doug Jones' shocking win over Republican Roy Moore on Wednesday.

Everyone from Jimmy Fallon to Stephen Colbert had something to say about Moore's loss, which was aided by the overwhelming turnout of African-American women for Jones.

On The Tonight Show, Fallon welcomed correspondent Yamaneika Saunders onstage, who joked that her back was hurting. "Oh no, your back is hurting?" Fallon prompted. "Yeah, every black woman's back is hurting — from carrying the election...

Jimmy Fallon Brings More Drama to ‘Riverdale’ With Dark ‘Peanuts’ Parody (Video)
Viewers probably thought Archie, Jughead, Betty and Veronica could never be twisted into dramatic characters before “Riverdale” premiered last year on The CW. Well, we were proven wrong — and now Jimmy Fallon is out to prove even more wholesome characters can go to the dark side. On Tuesday’s “Tonight Show” Fallon brought the classic gang from “The Peanuts” to the town that is plagued with one disaster after another. The crew was reimagined as angst-filled teens, just the like the characters played by Kj Apa, Lili Reinhart, Camila Mendes, Madelaine Petsch and Cole Sprouse. In the parody, Fallon plays Charlie Brown,

Jimmy Fallon Gives 'Peanuts' a 'Riverdale' Twist

The CW series Riverdale takes characters from the beloved Archie Comics and inserts them into a world of high school angst, murder and musical numbers. On Tuesday’s episode of The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon gave the Riverdale treatment to another beloved comic franchise: Peanuts.

Our town presents itself like so many other small towns. Safe, decent, innocent. Get closer, though, you start to see the shadows underneath,” begins Charlie Brown (Fallon) in a voiceover, similar to the opening narrations of Cole Sprouse’s Jughead Jones.

After Charlie falls to the ground when attempting to kick a football, Marcie and Peppermint Patty...

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery?

On Tuesday, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon premiered a parody of The CW’s hit show Riverdale — though instead of offering another take on the characters in Archie Comics, Fallon and team took on the Peanuts gang.

Our town presents itself like so many other small towns, safe, decent, innocent,” Fallon, as Charlie Brown, says in the clip in a serious narration in the vein of Cole Sprouse’s Jughead Jones on Riverdale. “Get closer though, you start to see the shadows underneath.’

Watch Star Wars Characters Flawlessly Sing 'MMMBop'

Watch Star Wars Characters Flawlessly Sing 'MMMBop'
Have you ever wondered what it might be like if a bunch of characters from Star Wars movies sang Hanson's MMMBop? Probably not, but either way, we now know exactly what that sounds like, thanks to a new video released by The Tonight Show. Yes, whether we need it or not, Jimmy Fallon has compiled a video of Star Wars characters singing the 1997 hit song and it sounds exactly how one would think something like this would sound. Is that a good or a bad thing? That's up for you to decide.

The video, titled Star Wars Characters Sing MMMBop, is only 30-seconds long, but it's more than enough time to show that there's enough weird sounds made in the history of the Star Wars franchise to seamlessly recreate the nonsensical chorus, originally performed by Hanson. Yoda, Greedo, Rey, Finn, Jabba the Hutt, Han Solo and dozens of other
