Added DiffLines:

* 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.
