You've Got to See the Raw Footage of Those Disney Channel Magic Wand Bumpers

An experience Raven-Symoné might describe as not-so-Raven.

You've Got to See the Raw Footage of Those Disney Magic Wand Bumpers
From Disney

The early-to-mid-'00s Disney Channel kids were part of a hit factory that produced kids' shows such as That's So RavenLizzie McGuire, and The Suite Life with Zack and Cody. And being part of that factory meant cranking out bumpers for the channel like the ones where they made the Mickey Mouse logo with a magic wand. And because we live in the age of information, the raw videos for some of those bumpers have now made their way online, and they are, by turns, hard to watch, and just plain silly. Like one minute we're worried that Raven-Symoné is being used by her uncaring corporate masters to crank out meaningless branded nonsense. And another minute we're cracking up at Beans trying to render a Mickey Mouse logo with those short little arms and a "magic wand."

The clips were originally tweeted out by @hollylikeablvd. Enjoy!

I write about movies for, which means I spend way too much time thinking about the geekiest possible ways to approach the cineplex. I'm also hopelessly addicted to audio books. Follow me: Google
