Is she cool, is she lame? 1997 animated TV show Pepper Ann is set to stream on Disney Plus from September, and it’s sparking all kinds of nostalgia for fans.
Ready to relive the Hazelnut Middle School days?
What is Pepper Ann?
If you’re not familiar, Pepper Ann is the girl that we all wanted to be back in the day. After all, she’s way too cool to be twelve.
Created by Sue Rose, the animated TV show follows the titular character Pepper Ann and her friends as they navigate Hazelnut Middle School.
The series initially aired on ABC in 1997 for 65 episodes, but now it’s set to stream on Disney+ and we couldn’t be more excited if we tried.
Plus, the real selling point is the show’s theme song. If you haven’t heard it, it’s a pretty angsty of-the-era type tune. You won’t be able to get it out of your head, trust us.
When will Pepper Ann be on Disney+
This is an important PSA for Millennials: the wait is almost over!
From September 8th, Pepper fans will be able to stream the first three seasons of the series on Disney+. Ahhhh!
The cartoon show has been highly anticipated ever since the launch of the Disney streaming service back in 2019.
The likes of Confessions of a Shopaholic, Rolie Polie Olie and Happier than Ever: A Love Letter to Los Angeles will also be joining Disney+ in September.
Fans react to new addition on Disney+
Hearing that Pepper Ann will stream on Disney+ has taken us back to pre-teen days, wishing that we could be as cool as Pepper.
Apparently, we’re not the only ones hit with nostalgia. Fans of the TV show have taken to Twitter to express their excitement.
One fan tweeted: “PEPPER ANN STANS RISEE”
Another recalled: “Just off the top of my head, Pepper Ann had Cool, but relatable tomboy protagonist, Healthy relationship with a single parent, 100% platonic male friend who wasn’t weird towards the protagonist, Killer theme song. I haven’t seen it in 20 years, but that’s what I recall.”
Somebody else wrote: “Excited for a new generation to discover “Pepper Ann.” The themes explored on this show were really ahead of their time.”
