The Replacements is an American action-fantasy-comedy animated television series for Disney Channel that ran originally from July 28, 2006 to March 30, 2009. Although the series originally aired episodes on Saturdays at 8:00pm EST, it was moved to Mondays at 5:00pm EST. The show aired for the last time on August 27, 2011 after the ABC Kids block being canceled. In Canada, Disney XD currently airs the series on weekday afternoons.

It is noted[by whom?] for its roster of celebrity guest stars, including High School Musical star Zac Efron, Cory in the House star Jason Dolley, Harry Potter star Bonnie Wright, Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus and Sonny With a Chance star Doug Brochu, as well as Ed Begley, Jr., Josh Duhamel, Gilbert Gottfried, Tim Gunn, and Carson Palmer (playing themselves).

Premise[edit]

The opening sequence explains that siblings Todd (voiced by Nancy Cartwright) and Riley (Grey DeLisle) lived what seem to be their entire lives in an orphanage, with no explanation of what happened to their birth parents. While cleaning the floors, they stumbled across a Fleemco comic book. They mail-ordered a Fleemco phone (which allows them to replace any person or animal they desire) and in the process they got new parents: a female British secret agent named Agent K (Kath Soucie) and a professional daredevil named Dick Daring (Daran Norris).

Whenever Todd and Riley want to replace someone that was very bad, they call Conrad Fleem on the Fleemco phone via a large button. Fleemco immediately replaces the person with someone to the liking of Todd and Riley. The series follows their chaotic misadventures as they use Fleemco to attempt to better their lives in nearly every problematic situation they encounter.
