When it comes to the Disney Channel, High School Musical is one of a kind. From the movies to the sold-out tours, the franchise really was the start of something new - especially for the film's stars. Not only did the movies establish a precedent for Disney movies to come, but it also jump-started the careers for big names like Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens. Almost 10 years later, the cast is still as close as ever, because once a Wildcat, always a Wildcat. Read on to see where your favorite stars are now and be sure to check out the cast's epic reunion during Halloween. »

Are your chills multiplying? Because the first photos of Julianne Hough, Vanessa Hudgens and Aaron Tveit decked out in their Pink Lady and T-Bird best are making us incredibly excited for January's Grease: Live. Seriously: Have sky-high wigs and black spandex and leather ever looked better? Probably not since John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John attended Rydell High back in 1978. The special, which will air from 7 to 10 p.m. on each coast (sorry, Pacific time zone, you get tape-delayed), stars Dancing With the Stars' Hough as the innocent Sandy, High School Musical alum Hudgens as the worldly Rizzo, and Broadway vet Tveit as the irresistible Danny Zuko.

52 years ago today, viewers first watched a show that would become a British and sci-fi icon. “Doctor Who” premiered on this date on BBC in 1963. In that episode, William Hartnell played the first iteration of the Time Lord who would take audiences on all sorts of fun, odd, and even sorrowful adventures through spacetime. He played the character for four seasons (series, to you British folks), and since then — thanks to the Doctor’s two hearts and ability to regenerate — 11 more (11ish more) men have played the character. Though “Doctor Who” started off airing just in the U.K., the show has since managed to capture millions upon millions of hearts all around the world — even though we humans only have one each. For evidence of the show’s popularity and impact, just turn to the Oxford English Dictionary — which has a few entries from “Doctor Who,” including Tardis — or »

Ashley Tisdale kept all her outfits from 'High School Musical'. The 30-year-old beauty was ''so into clothes'' when she starred as high school villain Sharpay Evans in the Disney films that she kept all her outfits from the first production. She shared: ''I have [Sharpay's] whole first wardrobe from the first ['High School Musical'] movie. Because I was just so into clothes, for some reason, I thought I'd wear her clothes again, which I never did. ''I invented some of [the outfits] in the movies - I would take a skirt and wear it as a tube dress, and it became a staple outfit, which is so crazy. I created the character was through her clothes. I wore the dress with pants underneath and a belt and it was this one specific moment in a movie. It's so funny how the stuff that you have so much fun with in a fitting actually »

Ausiello: Be careful what you wish for. This season’s 11th episode is titled “Death Will Have His Day” and marks the introduction of an “experienced grief counselor” named Devin. I suck at math but even I know that 1+1 = someone’s not long for this world. Oh, and in case you’re wondering, this isn’t that.
