Amanda Bynes Through The Years

As of late, Amanda has been in the tabloids for all the wrong reasons. Let’s take a moment to reflect on happier times of years past.

Amanda joined the cast of all that in 1996 for its 3rd season. Ain’t she cute!

How can anyone forget Ask Ashley?

Remember when she was a humanitarian with the Big Help?!

She was so cute and so funny that the comedy gods decided to give Amanda her own show… The Amanda Show!

Let’s not forget her infamous character Penelope Taynt… yeah, that was her last name.

We were so happy when she made the jump from Nickelodeon to WB with What I Like About You

This was a good time for her

Really good.

She became a leading lady.

What Girl Wants

She’s The Man

Amanda even sang in Hairspray… I mean, she tried.

No more of this please.

And especially this.

We miss this Amanda.

Come back to us Amanda! Please!
