Disney had their talents for the longest time, but who would've thought a quartet of fictional characters from young adult books written by Deborah Gregory would turn into major stars under the brand? The original set of books released in 1999 brought the Cheetah Girls to young readers in a phenomenal way, phenomenal enough to spawn a made-for-TV movie in 2003 on the Disney Channel. With stars Raven-Symone, Adrienne Bailon, Kiely Williams, and Sabrina Bryan, the Cheetah Girls literally came to life!

The evolution of the Cheetah Girls didn't stop there as they not only existed on the silver screen -- but on stage! The DVD sales were so staggering, reaching double-platinum sales, that the Girls instantly released the movie soundtrack as well as a 2005 Christmas album called Cheetah-licious Christmas. By then, the sequel and soundtrack for that film was also released in 2006, and then the Girls were actually touring and performing live, in many instances with Vanessa Hudgens and the High School Musical crew. And to make it even better, after Raven's departure from the group, the Cheetah Girls released their very first non-soundtrack album entitled TCG, followed by yet another Cheetah Girls film and soundtrack to boot.

As with anything revolving Disney, the Cheetah Girls appealed to that young, innocent girl power attitude that said the youth can accomplish anything. Like all the Hillary Duffs and Hannah Montanas, the Cheetah Girls can be described as true flagships of the brand. ?
