Kim Possible’s Christy Carlson Romano And Will Friedle On How They ‘Can’t Get Away’ From Disney Hit’s Impact Decades Later

Over the years, Disney Channel has released a number of excellent TV shows that are considered to be classics today, and that includes Kim Possible. Created by Buzz Lightyear of Star Command’s Bob Schooley and Mark McCorkle, the animated show centered on the titular teen heroine as she attempted to balance her heroics with her personal life. Plenty of talented people made the series what it became, but a lot of credit should go to Christy Carlson Romano, who voiced Kim. The same is true for her co-star, Will Friedle, who helped bring the hilarious (and sometimes hapless) Ron Stoppable to life. Like their fans, the  pitch-perfect actors have a lot of love for their show today and recently opened up about how they “can’t get away” from the show’s impact decades later.

It’s honestly hard to believe that it’s been over 15 years since Kim and Ron rode, I mean, flew off into the night in the series finale. Despite how much time has passed, the affection for the series– which ran for four seasons from 2002 to 2007 – appears stronger than ever. As you’d expect, the series’ stars are not oblivious to the hype. I spoke with both Christy Carlson Romano and Will Friedle in celebration of their voice acting-centric podcast, I Hear Voices. I asked the pair for their thoughts on the show’s legacy, and Romano proceeded to explain just how she’s seen its influence in her own life over the years:

Well, I think that the legacy continues. I think the legacy is very present. Right? … I think when we think of legacy, we think of something that’s past, but this is so… People are literally still dressing like Kim Possible, referencing Kim Possible, and you can’t get away from it. Like trust me, I’ve tried, I can’t get away from it. [Laughs]
