On this day in 2005, the comedy children's television series Phil of the Future first debuted in Canada on the Family Channel. Already a Disney Channel regular in the U.S. since June 2004, the show centered around the Diffy's, a family from the year 2121 who get stranded in the 2st century.
The series featured Ricky Ullman (as teenager Phil Diffy) and Alyson Michalka (as Keely Teslow - Phil's best friend/girlfriend). Michalka is best known today as half the sister pop duo Aly & AJ.
Although the last episode aired in August 2006, Phil of the Future is still frequently shown.
