Lizzie McGuire is a Disney Channel Original Series that aired on the Disney Channel from January 12, 2001, until February 14, 2004, for a total of two seasons. Its target demographic was preteens and adolescents. The series was created by Terri Minsky.
The show's mixed media format stood out from the rest of the Disney Channel's programming of the time and, in essence, became the channel's flagship and definitive show of the early 2000s. The show's producer Stan Rogow says the visual look of the show was partly inspired by Run Lola Run. Production was completed in 2002 after the show fulfilled its 65 episode order.
The series won Favorite TV Show at the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards two years in a row in 2002 and 2003.
