    Not going to lie, Disney Channel stars' fashions in the 2000s were a serve.

    Earlier today, Reddit user u/VentSauxe asked the AskReddit community: "What gives you 2000s nostalgia?"

    And, of course, lots of people chimed in with the things that take them back to that iconic decade. Here are some of the best responses that will totally be a Heelys skate down memory lane:

    1. "Watching George Lopez on Nick at Nite."

    3. "Tony Hawk's Pro Skater"



    "Or just skating in general. In my teens during the early 2000s, me and all my friends used to skate. Now I only have one acquaintance who still skates. I don't know why, but it's slightly depressing seeing him skate now that we are in our thirties, probably because it reminds me of our youth that is slowly growing more distant."


    4. "Old-school RuneScape. No matter how big it gets, it just won't be the same as it was in 2006."

    5. "The smell of that very specific plastic that jelly shoes are made of. Something about the smell of that clear plastic really brings me back to being a kid."

    7. "Custom animated mouse cursors and obnoxious wallpaper on websites and little Midi Players with a random pop song."

    8. "Having a computer room."

    11. "CRT TVs. I remember me and my girlfriend at the time used to watch her 21-inch TV from across her bedroom."

    "Which only had four channels (they didn't have cable in her house and here in Norway you only had four channels via antenna). God, we used to squint our eyes at that TV and spend lots of hours bored because there was nothing on. I'm glad the world of TVs and TV entertainment has evolved on to where we are today."


    12. "Disney stars wearing a skirt over jeans, a T-shirt over long sleeve shirt, or camisole over T-shirt; unnecessary layers of bright-colored clothes."

    13. "Butterfly hair clips"

    14. "Arthur. I know it didn’t come out in the 2000s. But I watched in the 2000s and [it] really takes me back to that time."

    20. "Motorola Razr hype."
