That's So Raven is an American television sitcom. The show premiered on Disney Channel on January 17, 2003, and ended on November 10, 2007.

 





That's So Raven

Premise

The plot revolves around teenager Raven Baxter and her schemes to get herself, her friends Eddie and Chelsea as well as her family members, such as her brother Cory, out of various situations, usually by using her psychic powers and skills as a master of disguise, neither of which help.

 

 





Production

The original name for the main character was Dawn Baxter, and the show was originally named The Future Is On Me. However, they changed the main character's name to Rose Baxter, and the show was called Absolutely Psychic. Finally, it was changed yet again to Raven Baxter when Raven-Symoné won the lead part, and the show was changed to That's So Raven. Raven-Symoné is credited as Raven throughout the series.

Seasons 1-3 were produced by Brookwell McNamara Entertainment. The fourth and final season was produced by Raven-Symoné. It became the first Disney Channel Series to create a spin-off, Cory in the House, which followed her younger brother, Cory, as his dad becomes the head chef for the President of the United States, causing the two of them to move to Washington D.C.

In the 4th season of That's So Raven and in Cory In The House, Victor states that Tanya (T'Keyah Crystal Keymáh) is in England as a lawyer. In real life, Keymáh left for creative and personal reasons.



Opening Sequence

The show's title theme song was written by John Coda, who also composed the music cues to signify scene changes and commercial breaks for this series and Even Stevens, was co-produced by Def Jef and Christopher B. Pearman (Raven-Symoné's real-life father) and was performed by Raven-Symoné, Anneliese van der Pol, and Orlando Brown.

Raven performs most of the theme, while Brown performs a rap near the end of the theme and some scattered vocals in the beginning of the theme. Van der Pol sings the shows title in the chorus. A full-length version of this theme was heard in a music video which aired a few months before the shows U.S. premiere and also can be heard on the show's first soundtrack, released in 2004. Like most Disney Channel shows, the sequence was modified each season.

In Disney Channel Asia, an Asian version of the shows theme song was made. The music video debuted on January 1, 2007 back-to-back with the 100th episode of That's So Raven.

Episodes

The show is the first Disney Channel Original Series to extend its contract from 65 to 100 episodes. The last episodes produced were "The Way We Were", but then the crossover called "Checkin' Out" was produced as part of That's So Suite Life of Hannah Montana. Although it was chronologically the last episode, it did not air last; instead, "When There's Smoke" aired last.

The Chill Grill

The Chill Grill is a restaurant owned by Victor Baxter who is Raven's father and also a gourmet chef. It was introduced during the second season of That's So Raven. In the episode "If I Only Had a Job", Raven has a vision of her dad opening his own restaurant called "'Baxter's Place'." In the beginning of the second season it finally opened as "The Chill Grill." The introduction of "The Chill Grill" was during the episode "Out Of Control". The restaurant is also a popular hangout for the kids that go to Raven Baxter's school. It was revealed in the episode The Four Aces that the Chill Grill was formerly a swinging 1940's restaurant by day, and nightclub in the evening called The Four Aces. The Chill Grill almost went out of business when, in the episode The Grill Next Door, the restaurant faced stiff competition from a knock-off restaurant called "The Hill Grill", which was owned by Victor's college cooking rival Leonard Stevenson. As of now the Chill Grill is still owned by Victor Baxter, but a manager is running it until Victor and his son (Cory) come back from Washington D.C.



Spin-off

Cory In The House

Cory in the House is the first Disney Channel spin off and premiered on January 12, 2007.

The storyline involves Cory and his father Victor adjusting to life in Washington D.C.; Victor has received a job as the personal chef to the President. The show takes place while Raven is attending fashion college and Raven and Cory's mom is still in England. Raven has guest-starred on the show.

The series is similar to its sister show, That's So Raven. Cory has two best friends, one a boy, Newton Livingston III (Jason Dolley), and one a girl, Meena Paroom (Maiara Walsh). Cory attends a middle school in Washington DC. Also in the series, the president's daughter, (Madison Pettis) Sophie, constantly pesters Cory, like Cory did to Raven in That's So Raven. Cory also participates in crazy situations in which he learns a moral lesson and will most likely get punished.

On one episode, Raven Symone guest starred as Raven, who came to show designs of new tour guide uniforms to President Martinez. Unfortunately, she has a vision of a clock falling on the President, and tackles him, earning the Secret Service a chance to chase her around the grounds. Cory poses as his sister to display the uniforms, modeled by Newton and Meena. Raven is discovered outside the Oval Office window, and chased, until she actually does save Mr. Martinez from the clock. The Episode ends with the credits sequence for That's So Pooshnick, a show from Meena's country about a psychic girl who can see the past.
