On this day in 2005 singer-actress Cyndi Lauper appeared on Disney Channel's That's So Raven. First introduced to the record-buying public in 1983 with her smash album She's So Unusual, Lauper played the role of Ms. Patuto on the debut of the Raven episode "Art Breaker."
Popularly known as a Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, Lauper has also worked as an actress (she made her acting debut in the 1988 quirky comedy Vibes and appeared in 4 episodes of the hit TV series Mad About You).
Lauper's Disney connection doesn't stop with Raven, as her credits include Higglytown Heroes as Operator Hero and the animated feature Tarzan - in which her song "True Colors" was used.
In 2001, Lauper headlined the New Year's Eve entertainment lineup at Disney World's Pleasure Island, and in 2008 appeared alongside Miley Cyrus (a.k.a Hanna Montana) to present an award at the Grammys.
