The Proud Family is returning to our screens — if one of the show’s lead actors is to be believed. Tommy Davidson, voice of Oscar Proud, made the announcement at an event last week. “The Proud Family is coming back…on one of Disney’s streaming [services],” he told Where Is The Buzz, before adding, “They told me not to tell you about it.”
Davidson gave no further details, and Disney has yet to confirm the news.
The original animated sitcom, which ran from 2001 to 2005, centered on Penny Proud, a bright teenager in a dysfunctional household. Supporting characters included her overbearing father Oscar, level-headed mother Trudy, and plain-spoken grandma Suga Mama. In focusing on a middle-class African-American family, it was almost unprecedented at the time, and still stands out today among kids’ animated shows.
