November 27, 2009 – The Original Disney XD Series I’m in the Band Premieres
“I’m in the band, and we demand you hear the Weasel shout!”
On November 27, 2009, the original live-action Disney XD series I’m in the Band premiered with a sneak preview of its first episode, entitled “Weasels in the House.” The series follows the adventures of vintage rock band Iron Weasel as they try to make a comeback with their new band member and biggest fan, fifteen-year-old Tripp Campbell. The series lasted for two seasons with 41 episodes, ending its run on December 9, 2011. The premiere was Disney XD’s second highest rated series premiere for an original series. Although not a critics darling, it had a devoted fanbase that was disappointed when the series announced its cancellation. The series starred Logan Miller as Tripp Campbell, Stephen Full as Ash Tyler, Greg Baker as Burger Pitt, Steve Valentine as Derek Jupiter, and Caitlyn Taylor Love as Izzy Fuentes.
