Show Description

Notable for being the "original" animated Disney Channel Original Series, The Proud Family was an animated kid's sitcom that featured many regular cast members and guest stars who were, or went on to be, "big" stars.

Penny Proud is a typical 14-year old who is frequently embarrassed by her outgoing, boisterous father (Oscar) but always reconciles with him at the conclusion of each episode. Her mother (Trudy) is more level-headed, while Suga Mama, Penny's sassy grandmother, is always ready with sage advice or much-needed comic relief. In between the typical househild calamities, Penny has a large group of friends who run the gamut from geeks to jocks to wanna-be singers and dancers.

The list of performers providing voices for the series reads like a "Who's Who" of entertainment, including regulars Tommy Davidson, Jo Marie Payton, Soleil Moon Frye, Cedric the Entertainer and Ron Glass. In addition, guest "voices" included Al Roker, Samuel L. Jackson, Raven-Symone, Ashanti, Beyonce and Solange Knowles, Steve Harvey, Vanessa Williams, Ving Rhames, Shia LaBeouf, Cicely Tyson, Mariah Carey, David Alan Grier and Robert Guillaume.
