It sounds like the McGuires aren’t the only beloved Disney Channel family reuniting on Disney+ next year. Penny, Suga Mama and the rest of The Proud Family, which originally aired for three seasons (2001–2005), are also planning an epic homecoming.
The confirmation came during Tuesday’s episode of GMA3, which featured a reunion of ’90s sitcom parents. Jo Marie Payton (aka Family Matters‘ Harriette Winslow) was asked by host Keke Palmer if she’s anything like Suga Mama, the character she voiced on the popular animated Disney Channel series.
“Yeah, Suga’s large and in charge,” Payton replied. “That’s all I’ve got to say — except for Suga Mama will be doing some new episodes come February.”
“Yes, on Disney+!” added Palmer, who made no attempt to conceal her excitement.
Actor Tommy Davidson, the voice of Oscar Proud on Disney’s original animated series ‘The Proud Family’ announced in August the show’s Disney+ reboot, but hearing the news on a Disney-owned network feels all the more official.
The Proud Family also featured the voices of Kyla Pratt as Penny, Paula Jai Parker as Trudy, Alisa Reyes as LaCienega Boulevardez, Karen Malina White as Dijonay, Orlando Brown as Sticky Webb, Soleil Moon Frye as Zoey and Tara Strong as twins Bebe/Cece and Puff the Poodle.
