It's painful, but amazing

If you grew up watching the Disney Channel, there’s a good chance you remember the clips that aired during commercial breaks of your favorite shows’ stars introducing themselves while drawing the Mickey Mouse logo with a wand. But before the magic is added and viewers can actually see Mickey’s head in all its glory, the stars of shows such as Lizzie McGuire and That’s So Raven had the fun job of repeating their names and tracing the (imaginary) ears with a wand — and this week, footage of those slightly awkward behind-the-scenes videos was unearthed.

Raven-Symoné starts off enthusiastically but grows impatient by the, oh, 700th take.

Hilary Duff also seems a bit tired after drawing the ears over and over.

Lalaine, who played Miranda on Lizzie McGuire, gives it a good go. 

And America Ferrera keeps up a positive attitude. 

Steven Anthony Lawrence, a.k.a. Beans on Even Stevens, has a problem getting his lines out, but draws some pretty great ears. Ta-da!

See their hard work pay off in the video below.
