** 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), {{Zoey 101}}, NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide, PhilOfTheFuture, Series/ANTFarm, and even WesternAnimation such as WesternAnimation/KimPossible and WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom all contain such relationships between the main character and a best friend and all came after LizzieMcGuire ended.

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 surburban audience, when the first being ''ThatsSoRaven''...being created by that one company known as [[HannahMontana Its]] [[TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody A]] [[SonnyWithAChance Laugh]] [[WizardsOfWaverlyPlace Productions]], but not the last Disney Channel shows (not counting cartoons) not made by that company, the last being ''PhilOfTheFuture''.

It also has the honor of being the first Disney Channel Live Action TV series to gain a theatrical movie, a feat followed by its SpiritualSuccessor, ''HannahMontana''.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* ContinuityNod: One episode was dedicated to Lizzie discovering she was good at rhythmic gymnastics. In another episode, she uses those skills to teach Kate to do a cartwheel one-handed after she breaks her arm and her replacement AlphaBitch turns out to be worse than she is.


Added DiffLines:

* IWishedYouWereDead: Lizzie once wished someone would "knock Kate off her pedestal" just before she fell off the top of the pyramid and broke her arm, prompting Lizzie's animated avatar to ask "Since when do I control the wind?" Lizzie winds up teaching Kate some rhythmic gymnastic moves she can do one-handed.

* AscendedExtra: Melina was originally going to be a one-time character, but she became popular enough to become a recurring character, even appearing in the movie.

Added DiffLines:

** Even after every episode where it seemed Lizzie and Kate were going to reconcile their differences and maybe be best friends again, by the end of the episode or by the next episode, they'd go back to being enemies.
This list shows the last 10 events of 87. Show all.
