I wouldn't say the best work that Disney Channel has done but it's a pretty good short show. I actually enjoyed watching the show when it first came to air, I thought it was great having to watch a group of high schoolers go through the same things that real high schoolers go through. I know they are really high schoolers but it's just amazing how they really put the effort onto being on TV and mixing their real high school life with their scripts. It helps a lot and it makes the script seem more realistic to some people. I'm actually a high schooler, and everyday when I go to school I actually see kids hanging out in the hallways and everyday it reminds me of the whole scene in ATBR. And kids can actually relate to the situations that are going on in each scene, especially kids that are in high school and in middle school. Now in my opinion, I actually think the laugh track is Unnecessary in some scenes but you still gotta give Disney Channel some credit. And whoever posted comments and ratings bashing the show and the actors, I'm guessing you only watched one episode out of the whole first season. I suppose to the people who dislike ATBR would rather watch something more pointless like that other short show Disney has called "Shaun The Sheep." The show is cute but they don't have voice actors and they only make little scenes with little sounds and it is actually very pointless. Hell, As The Bell Rings would be more entertaining than that weird show. And some people think the actors are terrible but they do actually have some very talented actors in the production. For example, Tony Oller is an amazing actor who is down-to-earth and has an amazing singing voice and can also dance, Demi Lovato is a great actress and has a lot of potential, she can also dance and act. Now I am not so sure about the others like Gabriella Rodriguez (Brooke), Seth Ginsberg (ToeJam), Collin Cole (Skipper), and Carlson Young (Tiffany) but deep down inside they have potential and can make it to be great and funny actors. If you have seen the first episode then you might think the acting isn't that outstanding but the actors really do have what it takes to be big.
Here's a list of the characters and I put a little summary about them too: Danny: Funny, charming, tall, handsome, and a cool guy who is best friends with ToeJam and Skipper. He has a major crush on this girl named Charlotte who is also a very good friend. He is also friends with two other female characters, Brooke and Tiffany.
Charlotte: Pretty, intelligent, funny, sweet, and is your normal teenage girl. Is best friends with Tiffany and Brooke and has a crush on Danny but wonders when he's ever gonna ask her out.
Tiffany: Pretty, cute, funny, dumb, and popular Tiffany is best friends with Charlotte and Brooke. Isn't the sharpest knife out of the whole group but sometimes can be helpful.
Skipper: Funny guy who is best friends with Danny and ToeJam. Always comes up with schemes to help his friends with their conflicts and has a little thing for Tiffany.
ToeJam: Nerdy, cute, funny, and smart ToeJam is best friends with Danny and Skipper. He always tends to have a funny feeling about Skipper's schemes turning out to be huge problems. Doesn't know if he likes Brooke but sounds like he does.
Brooke: Nerdy, pretty, nice, funny, and smart Brooke is best friends with Charlotte and Tiffany. Has strong opinions and gives her best input in every situation and plan the girls and guys come up with. Doesn't know if she likes ToeJam but sounds like it.
