Default Best/Greatest/Favorite Disney Channel Original Series/Show of All-Time

Though the channel doesn't produce the quality material it did in the early and mid 2000s, they still did a great job opening up a new market for themselves which is still somewhat popular. In a bit of nostalgia, what's the best show in the history of the channel?

NB: I kept the poll options to shows that completed the mandatory 65-episode run that is customary for most Disney shows. The only shows that were allowed that didn't meet the requirement were:
a) Girls Meets World (60 episodes - it's currently 5 episodes short of 65). It's also the only show on the list that is still currently in production ("on air"/airing new episodes.
b) Cory in the House (34 episodes - it was the first Disney Spin-off)
c) Sonny with A Chance (47 episodes - unlike most canceled shows under 65 episodes, it was actually very popular and was only canned due to Demi Lovato's departure. If combined with the "independent" series based on SWAC, So Random!, staring the same case sans Demi/"Sonny", the show would have had 73 episodes [47 SWAC +26 SR].
d) Gravity Falls (40 episodes - one of their most renowned and acclaimed animated series)
e) Flash Forward (26 episodes - their first official "Original Series")

PS: Shows such as Brotherly Love, Sister Sister, Smart Guy & Recess may have been synonymous with the Disney channel in the late 90s to early 00s but they were only being syndicated on Disney. They were produced on/for other networks and hence were not included on the list since they weren't Disney Original Series.
BL - [NBC then the WB (The CW)] ;
SS - [ABC then the WB (The CW)] ;
SG - [The WB]
Recess - [ABC]
Disney Game Shows such as Mad Libs & Off the Wall as well as "Reality Shows" such as Bug Juice & Going Wild with Jeff Corwin were also excluded.

Other Polls / Lists (though none as comprehensive as this)

Longest Running NON-Animated ORIGINAL Series (# of episodes):
Wizards of Waverly Place (106)
That's So Raven (100)
Hannah Montana (98)
Jessie (98)
Good Luck Charlie (97)

Phineas & Ferb (222) is the longest running animated series, followed by Kim Possible (87). The All-New Mickey Mouse Club is the longest running Disney Channel Series (360).

Disney Channel has had many popular shows throughout its history. Its first ever series was Good Morning, Mickey!, which ran from 1983 to 1992. The first series branded as a "Disney Channel Original Series" was Flash Forward, which ran from 1995 to 1999. The channel's first hit series was The All-New Mickey Mouse Club, which ran from 1989 to 1996. Its second hit series was Even Stevens, which ran from 2000 to 2003.

That's So Raven
(The series is the third-longest running Disney Channel Original Series ; That's So Raven garnered higher ratings than any other Disney Channel show and is also the first show in Disney channel history to make the 100 episode mark.)
Proud Family
(It was the first animated Disney Channel Original Series)
Phineas & Ferb
It is now the longest running Disney Channel Original Series, beating Kim Possible's 5 years and 3 months, and is also the longest running Disney XD Original Series.
Kim Possible
It was the second animated Disney Channel Original Series, and the first series to be produced by Walt Disney Television Animation, in association with Disney Channel. Originally broadcast from 2002 to 2007, Kim Possible was Disney Channel's longest-running original animated series until it was surpassed by Phineas and Ferb.
Wizards of Waverly Place
In January 2012, Wizards of Waverly Place ended its run on the channel, becoming Disney Channel's longest-running original series with 106 episodes (the record for the channel's longest-running series was formerly held by That's So Raven, which ran for 100 episodes). It surpassed That's So Raven in October 2011 to become Disney Channel's longest-running original series, and ending its run in January 2012 at 106 episodes)
Cory in the House
The series marks a Disney Channel first, as it is the channel's first spin-off.

Life With Derek wasn't a Disney Channel original series. It originally aired on the Canadian Family Channel.

Even though I wasn't the target demographic, I loved Even Stevens. I discovered it right near the end of its run but spent time catching up on all the reruns. I even managed to record almost every single episode on VHS when Disney Channel once did a full re-airing of the whole series from start to finish. It was such a great show and one of the few I've seen centered around kids that came close to mirroring my own adolescence. I saw a lot of my younger self in both Louis and Ren, and at least a few episodes in particular were almost scary accurate in how close they came to capturing aspects of my own childhood, especially regarding school and relationships.

I wish Disney would show it some love on DVD because I'd buy it in a heartbeat. I'm surprised they didn't when Shia LaBeouf started getting popular in movies.
