9 TV Shows That Had Totally Bizarre Musical Episodes
Musicals are totally epic; that’s why Glee was successful for so long. Whether it’s a teen movie that became a musical or a Broadway play that featured former Disney stars, watching celebrities try something different really, really fun. Buuuut then you have the instances when non-musical TV shows try their hand at the world of song and things can get pretty weird.
Unlike Glee, which was an entire show based on music and singing, there are some television series that decided to take a whack at musical moments completely out of the blue. Sure, a few mastered the art of throwing in a musical number every once and a while and succeeding, but most are just really effing bizzare.
Growing up, Even Stevens was the show to watch. It had SO many quirky and strange characters including Louis Stevens and Beans, but nothing could prepare us for the moment when Ren got the flu during "Influenza: The Musical" and had a dream where everyone sang. Because the Disney Channel series already featured the cast as a band in a few episodes, it wasn't as out of the blue to have them perform.
