This (and the transformation of Music/HilaryDuff into an IdolSinger) managed to keep this series on DisneyChannel for a full 65 episodes, from January 2001 to February 2004. It is commonly {{misblamed}} for being the first of Disney's tween sitcoms geared toward a more suburban audience, when the first was really ''Series/ThatsSoRaven''...and even then, that show wasn't the last ''not'' produced by that one company known as [[Series/HannahMontana It's]] [[Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody a]] [[Series/SonnyWithAChance Laugh]] [[Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace Productions]] (the last Disney Channel show produced outside of It's a Laugh was ''Series/PhilOfTheFuture'').

* {{Misblamed}}: For being the first Disney Channel sitcom. It is true that it's the first and the key show that catapulted DisneyChannel to overnight success...only to be lost by ThatsSoRaven, which stole almost all of its thunder.

** The fact that ''ThatsSoRaven'' and almost every DisneyChannel kidcom created since then (with few exceptions) came courtesy of It's A Laugh Productions, unlike its predecessors, ''Lizzie [=McGuire=]'' (Stan Rogow Productions), ''EvenStevens'' (Brookewell [=McNamara=]) and ''Series/PhilOfTheFuture'' (2121 Productions, though it was shot at It's A Laugh's lot at first) may have much to do with how atypical those shows are to what came later.

* TropeMaker: For the DisneyChannel {{Kidcom}} formula. Something of an UnbuiltTrope as well, since ''Lizzie [=McGuire=]'' lacks many elements of the formula, most notably a LaughTrack or a HighConcept premise.

** For maximum MoodWhiplash, compare the show's pilot to TheMovie. You'll go from something JudyBlume might have written to what's blatantly a WishFulfillment ChickFlick.

** Just as the series as a whole was something of a watershed and lead to multiple new shows that were more serialised and included developing romance arcs, it also paved the way for more JustFriends relationships in the shows that followed: Series/ICarly (Which itself is {{Nickelodeon}}'s AlternateCompanyEquivalent), Series/{{Zoey 101}}, Series/NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide, PhilOfTheFuture, Series/ANTFarm, and WesternAnimation such as WesternAnimation/KimPossible and WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom all contain such relationships between the main character and a best friend and all came after ''Lizzie [=McGuire=]'' ended.

*** In a way LizzieMcGuire is the TropeCodifier to the JustFriends relationship in post 2000 television, after SlapSlapKiss Love/Hate type couples had dominated the 90's and the Ron/Hermione ship in ''Literature/HarryPotter'' had introduced it all over again.

* TheMerch: Fortune magazine estimated in 2003 that Lizzie [=McGuire=] merchandise had earned the Walt Disney Co. nearly ''$100 million''! That's from Radio Disney's big CD promotion, books based on the episodes being sold, mystery books starring Lizzie (much in the same vein as the MaryKateAndAshleyOlsen mystery books), TokyoPOP manga adaptations, bed sheets, {{Franchise/Barbie}} dolls, board games, and TheMovie.

* CoolLoser: Lizzie isn't supposed to be ''ugly'', but she's considered a loser. RogerEbert laughed at this in his review of the film, wondering how someone with a smile ''that shines brighter than all the stars in the sky'' could be unpopular.
