‘Kim Possible’ and Ron Stoppable reunite on ‘GMA’

What’s happening? If you’re excited for the 20th anniversary of the Disney Channel series Kim Possible, then maybe it’s time for an eye cream.

Stars Christy Carlson Romano and Will Friedle continued celebrations of the two-decade milestone of the Emmy-nominated animated series on ABC’s Good Morning America on Tuesday. There, they reminisced about a time when beepers and custom ringtones were one thing and the theme song by Christina Milian reigned supreme among children of a certain age.

“You know what’s so funny? Is that the first, ‘doo, doo, doo’ [from the theme song]everyone, everyone, of all ages — whether they were parents when their kids watched it or if they’re adults now — know it’s an iconic moment,” said Romano, 38, who voiced the series’ titular crime. Battle heroine Kim Possible.

“You think someone texted you. I always think so [when I hear it] because everyone had it as a text ring. So you’d always hear that and hear it in an airport or something and be like, ‘What’s up?'” added Friedle, 45, who voiced Kim’s pal Ron Stoppable and has consistently done voice work.

Kim Possible first aired on Disney Channel between 2002 and 2007 and lived on in reruns. Actors Jean Smart, Gary Cole, Elliott Gould, Nestor Carbonell, Andrea Martin and Raven-Symoné also guest-starred on the show. All four seasons are available to stream on Disney+.

When Romano and Friedle were gifted their characters’ action figures in GMA, Friedle said it marked the “collection phase” of their careers and later lamented that it was all just part of his “Will’s Old Tour.” That’s because he also starred in the popular ABC sitcom Boy Meets World, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary. (He shared that the pilot was originally filmed with an actor other than goofy older brother Eric Matthews, but Friedle later landed the part because that actor was deemed too short.)

Romano, who starred opposite Shia LaBeouf on the Disney Channel Original Series Even Stevens around the same time, also opened up about her early career highlights.

“It’s a legacy for me. I have two daughters [ages] 5 and 3, and my avatar on Disney+ is Kim Possible,” Romano said. “So it’s my big mom Flex that I like to have with my girls.”

The co-stars have even lobbied for an on-air reboot of the series.

“Everyone wants a fresh start. TikTok loves us. So we’re down,” Romano said.

The show was previously rebooted as a live-action TV movie that aired on the cable channel in 2019, but Romano only made a cameo appearance.

Meanwhile, the couple’s animated podcast I Hear Voices coordinated a separate Kim Possible meetup with some of her co-stars, as well as series creators Mark McCorkle and Bob Schooley. It features Kim and Ron and recurring villains Shego (Nicole Sullivan) and Dr. Drakken (John DiMaggio).

“For the first time in 15 years, there’s new ‘Kim Possible’ content on our podcast,” Friedle said. “It’s very cool. We have a whole new scene written by the creators of the show. So Kim and Ron are back together. It’s really freaky.”

The episode, which also aired Tuesday, is why the podcast exists, Friedle said. Watch the discussion below and skip to the 49 minute mark for the new “Hörspiel Podcast”:
