Reasons Why Andi Mack is a Good Disney Show

Andi Mack is one of the best disney channel shows, only second to Gravity Falls. You can watch the first two eps of Andi Mack on the Disney Channel on the Disney Channel app, YouTube, and on demand. It officially premieres April 7.

The Top Ten

1 It's Deep and Mature

Ew! Teenage pregnancies in this? That's disgusting and weird! Teen pregnancy shall be banished and removed and it will not exist!

Please, just let kids be kids and don't blatantly force adult content on them.

It deals with teen pregnancies, periods, and sexualities. No other Disney show has done that. However, they keep it appropriate for children. It's mature, while other Disney Channel crapcoms can't even stay mature for 3 minutes. - Cartoonfan202

Andi Mack is the most awkward show you'll find on T.V.. I've tried so hard to like it, but I can't. It's just SO BAD!

2 It's Made by the Same Person Who Made Lizzie McGuire

Proof that brain cells die as you get older: the same person who made the amazing Lizzie McGuire so many years ago makes this crap that doesn't even deserve to be on T.V..

Lizzie McGuire was an old but good Disney show that also lacked a laugh track. - Cartoonfan202

3 It's Funny

Excessive toilet humor is NOT COMEDY. Torture and abuse is NOT COMEDY. Stupidity is NOT COMEDY (except when its done correctly). Eating disorder jokes are NOT COMEDY. (Episodes of Jessie, So Random, and Shake it Up got banned for making these jokes). However, Andi Mack is funny. Seriously, the Nickelback, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and period jokes were hilarious! - Cartoonfan202

I haven't laughed once - Selfiefan68

The humor feels like it's too witty for the children to be blasting off. It resembles the tweens' Gilmore Girls. They sound pretentious and try a bit too hard with the jokes, but I think they're funny enough. Wish they wouldn't have the cool older sister stereotype, especially when she dons a Red Hot Chili Peppers shirt in an episode. come on, how many tweens will get the reference? Unnecessary, but the show is enjoyable on its own.

It’s boring - Trucker55

4 It Lacks a Laugh Track

Because there's no parts to laugh at?

You know why? Because it isn't funny.

Like Stuck in the Middle and Lizzie McGuire. However I don't like SitM anymore. Okay look its fine for shows to have laugh tracks. I mean Disney has good sitcoms: Wizards of Waverly Place, that's so Raven, and more, which were actually funny and didn't have the laugh track play after every line. Modern disneycoms play the laugh track so much that you could make a "But Every Time X Happens, it gets faster" meme out of them and they would be like 2 minutes long. - Cartoonfan202

5 It is Diverse

About dang time they finally had the main family cast be Asian! I've always wanted a live-action show to have Asian Americans as the main characters. And since Disney Channel wasn't really good with portraying racial diversity, I was scared an Asian American family sitcom by them would turn out horrible. Thankfully, that never came to be the case with this show. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

The main character is Asian. Her friend Buffy is black, and her friend Cyrus is Jewish. Plus, the Macks are an interracial family because the dad (or should I say grandfather) is white and everyone else is Asian. - Cartoonfan202

Gravity Falls had an Asian and and African American, The Proud Family had an African American family, Danny Phantom had an African American nerd and Girl Meets World had an African American. Asian families are good.

Unfortunately, the black character is portrayed as a total jerk (watch “Crime Scene: Andi Shack” to see an example) and then shipped off to another state.

6 It Has a Great Theme Song

It's better than any old modern Disneycom theme. Plus its sung by Sabrina Carpenter. - Cartoonfan202

Nope. - Trucker55

7 It Has a Great Mix of Comedy and Drama

The show isn't 100% comedy and the show isn't 100% drama, but a perfect mix of both. More kid shows need to learn how to do that. Plus, the show has real suspense, not the cliche and overused New Girl At School plot. - Cartoonfan202

Comedy? What comedy? That pathetic excuse for a main character?

8 The Characters are Nice to Each Other

Amber is still nice to that witch Andi even though she stole her boyfriend!

In a lot of recent Disneycoms, the characters CLAIM to be friends, but they bully, torture, and abuse each other. In Andi Mack, the characters are polite (except for Amber, Jonah's girlfriend), and don't treat each other like crap. Plus, they are well-developed and likable. - Cartoonfan202

9 It Doesn't Talk Down to Kids

It also encourages kids to disrespect adults. Andi is rude to Celia, who raised her, just because she isn't her birth mother, and she also disrespects the principal for the heinous crime of,.. gasp! Enforcing school rules!

It portrays adults as annoying losers who shouldn't be given any respect.

Instead, it talks down to adults and encourages kids to rebel.

A lot of shows treat kids like they're stupid. Andi Mack respects childrens' intelligence and is mature. - Cartoonfan202

10 It Saved Disney Channel

I thought I'd stop watching Disney Channel for good after Austin and Ally and Good Luck Charlie ended. (RIP Austin and Ally and Good Luck Charlie. You will be forever loved) But Andi Mack showed me that Disney can redeem themselves. Let's also hope Raven's Home can do the same.

Gravity Falls and Phineas and Ferb saved the animation department. Meanwhile, there hasn't been any good Disney Channel live action show since the premiere of Good Luck Charlie (however, there were shows that premiered before GLC that sucked), and Andi Mack helped people to have faith in the live action department again. - Cartoonfan202

This made me stop watching Disney.

Raven’s Home did, not this. - Trucker55
