Good Luck Charlie is an American sitcom that originally aired on Disney Channel from April 4, 2010, to February 16, 2014. The series' creators, Phil Baker and Drew Vaupen, wanted to create a program that would appeal to entire families, not just children. It focuses on the Duncan family of Denver as they adjust to the births of their fourth and fifth children, Charlotte "Charlie" (Mia Talerico) and Toby (Logan Moreau). In each episode, Teddy Duncan (Bridgit Mendler) adds to a video diary that contains advice for Charlie about their family and life as a teenager. Teddy tries to show Charlie what she might go through when she is older for future reference. Each video diary ends with Teddy (or another family member, even Charlie) saying the eponymous phrase, "Good luck, Charlie".

Among other decisions, executives included adult-centric scenes and changed the series title from Oops to Love, Teddy and finally to Good Luck Charlie in order to ensure the series would appeal to all family members. Good Luck Charlie premiered on Disney Channel in the United States on April 4, 2010,

Duncan (Bridgit Mendler), Charlie's only sister, is the second-oldest Duncan sibling. Feeling that she will not be around as much when Charlie is grown, she produces and directs video diaries for her, hoping they will give her advice that will help her be successful as a teenager. She produces these video diaries at the end of every episode, and at the end of every video diary she says "Good luck Charlie". Her best friend is Ivy Wentz. It was mentioned in "Sun Show: Part 1", that her parents were expecting a boy, hence the generally masculine name "Teddy". She dated Spencer Walsh in season one, but they broke up after she caught him two-timing both her and a pretty, dim-witted brunette named Skyler, breaking her heart. She and Skyler later become friends. She and Spencer get back together in season two. Throughout the show Teddy has had numerous boyfriends. Teddy shows much care towards her brothers, such as saving PJ from falling out of the treehouse window, or offering to help Gabe deal with Jo, who has given him a black eye. Teddy's best friend Ivy often calls her G.G. for "goody-goody." She and Spencer get back together in "Can You Keep A Secret?". In "All Fall Down" Teddy and Spencer break up because they don't want to be in a long-distance relationship while Spencer attends the Boston Institute for Performing Arts (BIPA). But when Bob's newest employee Beau admits that he likes Teddy, they begin dating. The two break up when he decides to move home. In "Accepted", Teddy finds out that she is on the waiting list for Yale after Victor; later she is accepted. Later in the last episode, Spencer and Teddy get back together and kiss, and she shoots the final entry in her video diary before leaving for Yale. It was never revealed what her middle initial "R" stands for.

A lot of the high-concept shows have kids in an extraordinary situation where the parent or adult takes a backseat, and sometimes the adult isn't as smart as the kid, or it's all about the kids putting one over on the adults. But we have a new show called "Good Luck Charlie" that has a very different kind of concept. It is very grounded, very relatable, and it's not about the parents being dumber than the kids. We try and mine as much comedy out of the parents as possible, but it doesn't mean the kids can't learn from the parents and get guidance from the parents.

Mendler and Jason Dolley, who plays Teddy's older brother PJ, have starred in preceding Disney Channel series and movies before both were cast in Good Luck Charlie; Mendler had a recurring role on Wizards of Waverly Place and Dolley starred in Cory in the House and numerous Disney Channel television movies. Variety magazine's Brian Lowry says their careers "[reflect] the Disney Channel's knack for identifying young performers and rolling them from one project to the next, in a fashion reminiscent of the old studio system".

The Duncan family was very relatable in many ways, especially with all the hilarious characters that were part of the Duncan clan. From mom and dad to the two annoying brothers, a loving sister, and all their friends and neighbors, "Good Luck Charlie" never lacked entertaining characters played by talented actors.

Perhaps the biggest star of "Good Luck Charlie," other than Charlie herself, was Teddy Duncan, played by Bridgit Mendler. Teddy was the one talking to the camera in most of the video diaries, and tried to give her little sister as much good advice as she could. Teddy's personal life was often the center of the plot on "Good Luck Charlie," and Mendler played the role perfectly.

If there was one character on the Disney Channel that perfectly encapsulated the stereotypical annoying little brother, it was Gabe Duncan on "Good Luck Charlie." Gabe, played by Bradley Steven Perry, would often tease his older siblings, play pranks on them, spy on them, and was oftentimes getting in trouble at school or at home. Still, Perry's portrayal of Gabe was spot-on. And, in the years since "Good Luck Charlie" ended, he's taken his talents elsewhere and seems to be living his best life.

Talerico has had a few roles since "Good Luck Charlie" ended, though the young actor will likely always be known for her adorable portrayal on the series. Still, Talerico went on to have roles in the television show "Conrad," and two short films called "Shadow Theory," and "Photographic Memory." But Talerico's biggest role since "Good Luck Charlie" would definitely be on the television series, "Mani," on which Talerica played Paige. Additionally, Talerico has a pretty popular Instagram account — with over one million followers — where she and her family regularly post updates about her career and life. Yes, little Charlie is all grown up, and still doing well for herself.
