It’s been 20 years since “Kim Possible” fans first heard “call me, beep me, if you want to join me,” and while the pagers might be overwhelmed, the iconic series with a female heroine has stood the test of time.
“That first, ‘doo, doo, doo’, everyone, at all ages, whether it’s a parent when their kids were watching or an adult now, know it’s an iconic moment. “, said Christy Carlson Romano, who voices Kim Possible, “Good Morning America” on Tuesday.
Will Friedle, who plays Ron Stoppable, recalled that at the show’s peak, “everyone had it as a text bell – so you’d hear it at an airport and think, ‘What’s going on? -he? “”
Both co-stars received collectible action figures on “Good Morning America” as they talked about their time as animated characters.
“It’s a legacy for me – my avatar on Disney+ is Kim Possible,” said Romano, mother of 3- and 5-year-old girls. “It’s my big mom flex that I like to have with my girls.”
Friedle added that when they have events or conventions there are “little kids dressed up like Kim and Ron and it’s pretty awesome to see it sticking around after all this time.”
“It touches our hearts in a very genuine way. We love our fans very much and it’s really great to engage with them,” Romano said. “A lot of people identify with the characters or helped them grow and find themselves and we really like to honor that.”
The pair broke exciting news to fans of the Disney show, saying their “I Hear Voices” podcast features “new ‘Kim Possible’ content for the first time in 15 years,” Friedle said. There’s even a new scene written by the series creator that brings together Kim, Ron, Dr. Drakken, and Shego.
All four seasons of “Kim Possible” are available to stream on Disney+ and the special 20th anniversary podcast episode “I Hear Voices” is available now.
