    Looking At Disney Channel Stars In Their First And Last Episodes Is Nostalgic AF

    The Phil of the Future finale still makes me cry.

    1. Louis Stevens in the Even Stevens pilot episode...

    Years before the Stevens family would end up on "Gotcha!"

    ...and Louis Stevens in the finale.

    The last episode before we see the Stevens family end up on an "island adventure."

    2. Lizzie in the Lizzie McGuire pilot episode...

    Re-watching this show makes me want to get bangs.

    3. ...and Lizzie McGuire in the finale.

    Sing to me Paolo!

    4. Raven Baxter in the That's So Raven pilot episode...

    Disney Channel / Via Disneyplus.com

    "Yup, that's me!"

    5. ...and Raven in the finale.

    We deserved one more "ya nasty!" after this cliffhanger of a finale episode.

    6. Phil Diffy in the Phil of the Future pilot episode...

    Disney Channel / Via Disneyplus.com

    Underrated AF. Can we get more people talking about Phil's cuteness?

    ...and Phil in the finale.

    *Spoiler alert* I remember crying when Phil went back to the future! How could you, Disney?

    7. Hannah/Miley Stewart in the Hannah Montana pilot episode...

    Disney Channel / Via Disneyplus.com

    Sweet niblets! What a little cutie!

    8. ...and in the Hannah Montana finale.

    Disney Channel / Via Disneyplus.com

    "It ain't about what's waiting on the other side. It's the climb."

    9. Alex Russo in the Wizards of Waverly Place pilot episode...

    Disney Channel / Via Disneyplus.com

    "What's that? A hat? Crazy funky junky hat" *sing along*

    ...and Alex in the finale.

    Disney gave its viewers great closure with a full season of episodes after the Wizards movie (and I love that movie!).

    10. Zack and Cody Martin in the Suite Life of Zack and Cody pilot episode...

    Disney Channel / Via Disneyplus.com

    I always refer to the gear shift in my car as the PRNDL!

    ...and the twins in the finale.

    Disney Channel / Via Disneyplus.com

    We lucked out with a whole follow-up series with these two! Suite Life on Deck!

    11. Charlie Duncan in the Good Luck Charlie pilot episode...

    Disney Channel / Via Disneyplus.com

    SO. CUTE.

    12. ...and in the Good Luck Charlie finale.

    Disney Channel / Via Disneyplus.com

    I loved watching how Charlie growing up is mirrored in Teddy's life. We tip our hats to Teddy, who was actually the main character of this show!

    13. Austin in the Austin and Ally pilot episode...

    Disney Channel / Via Disneyplus.com

    These two baby-faces had great chemistry!

    ...and Ally in the pilot episode.

    Disney Channel / Via Disneyplus.com

    From the strong pipes to the piano skills, this girl was always killing it.

    And here's them both in the finale!

    *cries*

    14. Jessie from the Jessie pilot episode...

    Disney Channel / Via Disneyplus.com

    Maybe I should become a nanny...

    ...and Jessie in the finale!

    Disney Channel / Via Disneyplus.com

    Jessie and Tony 4ever!

    15. K.C. in the K.C. Undercover pilot episode...

    Disney Channel / Via Disneyplus.com

    Zendaya's been killing it since before she was born.

    ...and in the finale episode.

    Disney Channel / Via Disneyplus.com

    On to a bright future!

    16. Andi in the Andi Mack pilot episode...

    Disney Channel / Via Disneyplus.com

    Groundbreaking show (for Disney Channel) to feature its first gay main character.

    ...and Andi Mack in the finale.

    Disney Channel / Via Disneyplus.com

    This show truly deserved more seasons!
