* Just recently it made me wonder: Why does Disney Channel don't air shows with a TV-Y7-FV rating? The only one that got through was one part of a two parter premiere of ''Series/AaronStone'' and ''WesternAnimation/TronUprising''. They didn't even did this when Disney still had ''PowerRangers''. ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' and ''AmericanDragonJakeLong'' got aired, but I don't know if they had that rating. Is Disney that afraid to show violence in their channel?!

* On the basis of the show's ships- why almost all the shows have the fans wanting the blonde sidekick with the lead boy instead of the lead girl (who in most cases is a brunette or a black- haired one)? See: Lilly and Oliver, Olive and Fletcher, etc. The only exceptions are Lizzie and Gordo, Phil and Keely, Cody and Bailey, as well as Austin and Ally themselves.

## When a lot of these shows get dumped to ABC or whatever there will be actual commercials involved.

** Looks like it's here- Series/KCUndercover is rated TV-Y7-FV, the first Disney Channel Original Series to have it.

** ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' is TV-Y7. (:
** ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'' is TV-Y7 as well! Yay!
*** NO, Not TV-Y7, TV-Y7-FV. There is a difference.
** I guess that's what Disney XD is for.

** Most kids' channels are guilty of the same. Another part of that decision is that young kids have a tendency to think older kids and teenagers are automatically cooler, so of course they're going to watch a show with an automatically-cool teenager trying to be even cooler. Teen actors also tend to have more experience and skill with acting than younger actors do, and it's not very common for creators to cast women VAs as children in animated shows anymore.

** Likely to make it more easily used in foreign markets; 'Playhouse' would have to be translated on their foreign outlets, which wouldn't allow the branding by continent most kid's channels prefer to make marketing much easier and cheaper. 'Junior'=young kid, so someone in Russia understands that as much as an American or Malaysian.

* Why doesn't Disney Channel do shows about Grade Schoolers ala ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}''? I mean for the entirety of the channel's lifespan, they haven't done a single show about life as a Grade School kid (live-action wise). Most of the channel's shows and original movies are mostly set in HighSchool, with the nearest one to said level being Middle School. The nearest we got for kids in Grade School is ''TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody'' and ''ANTFarm'' (since the 3 main kids are at Grade 5 to Grade 6 age), but it's still set in High School level.

Not to mention their competitor have already beaten them to a punch with ''Series/NickyRickyDickyAndDawn''...
