    Who remembers that early 2000s Nickelodeon show 'Taina?' The series only ran from 2001 to 2002, but that theme song is still stuck in our heads. Actress Christina Vidal Mitchell played the main character, Taina Morales, an aspiring teenage singer with dreams of making it big in Hollywood. You'll also definitely remember the star from the Lindsey Lohan classic, 'Freaky Friday,' and the old school Disney Channel Original Movie, 'Brink.' So, what has she been up to in recent years? Emily explains it all on the latest episode.

    Vine

    Vine

    Remember Vine, the short-lived social media app where users could share six-second looping videos? The super popular app officially released in 2013, but it was officially a goner by 2017. So, what ever happened to it? Emily digs deep into Vine's story on the latest episode of the podcast.

    Joining Emily to reminisce is her friend Ali Booth, a pop culture expert and social media manager who knows a thing or two about the Vine era. Not only do they chat about the app's demise, but they also dive into a discussion about the celebrities who emerged from Vine, from the Magcon boys (hello, Shawn Mendes!) to the Paul brothers.

    Who else remembers how iconic Playhouse Disney was back in the day?

    Cabbage Patch Kids

    Cabbage Patch Kids

    Either you were obsessed with Cabbage Patch Kids or you never understood the hype. The dolls were huge in the early ‘80s, and for some people, they’re still cherished collectibles today. There have been some revisions over the years, but they're still immediately recognizable with their big-cheeked baby-faces. But the origin story of BabyLand General Hospital may not be all it's cracked up to be.

    Emily explains it all, from creepy oaths to babies being plucked from plants, in the latest episode of the podcast.

    Loonette the Clown From ‘The Big Comfy Couch’

    Who remembers Loonette the Clown from The Big Comfy Couch? In case you need us to jog your childhood memory, The Big Comfy Couch was a children’s television show about a pigtailed, freckle-faced clown named Loonette, which aired from 1992 to 2006.

    So who was the actress behind Loonette, and what ever happened to her? We explain it all on this week's episode of the podcast. Emily is joined by 'What Ever Happened To...?' podcast producer, Tatiana Zamis, as the two dig deep into their childhood memories to reminisce about the show they loved as toddlers and talk about what ever happened to actress Alyson Court. Tangents include 'Clifford,' 'Arthur,' and a beautiful rendition of the theme song from 'Dragon Tales.' Get ready to clown around!
