Whoa! When Did Disney Stars Joey, Matthew And Andy Lawrence Grow Up?

It feels like 1997 was only yesterday.

If you grew up in the '90s, then odds are you watched the Lawrence Brothers on TV. Joey, Matthew and Andrew "Andy" Lawrence were three of the biggest stars of the '90s. (Sorry, Hanson.)

Each of them were in so many films and TV shows, it'd take half of this post to list them all. So, I'll just do a quick break down so you can briefly relive your childhood.

>> Joey: "Blossom," "Oliver & Company" and "A Goofy Movie"

>> Matthew: "Mrs. Doubtfire," "Boy Meets World" and "Kiki's Delivery Service"

>> Andy: "Recess," "The Other Me" and "Jack Frost"

On Monday, Joey shared a super cute pic of himself and his bros chillin' at The Cheesecake Factory, and we noticed something. Um, they grew up.

It seems like just yesterday they were all starring in "Brotherly Love" and "Brothers of the Frontier." Where did the time go? The bros were also in two of my personal favorite DCOMs, "Horse Sense" and "Jumping Ship." (OK, well, Matthew had a quick, uncredited cameo in "Horse Sense," but whatevs.)



Oh look, you found a picture of my childhood.

Since they all seemed to grow up overnight, let's take a look back at the Lawrence Brothers' timeline, shall we?

In 1986, Joey and Matthew both starred on the show "Gimme a Break!" Armed with bowl cuts, Joey and Matthew attended the 38th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards.

In 1988, baby bro Andy is born! Here is the Lawrence family at the LA premiere of the Disney film "Oliver & Company" -- of which Joey voiced the title character.

In 1992, the bros were at the peak of fashion while attending the Publicists Guild of America Awards.

In 1994, they somehow managed to top their outfits from '92. Their show "Brotherly Love" would begin next year and run until 1997.

In 1996, they attended MTV's Rock n' Jock Basketball — and straight-up killed it with these outfits.

FYI, all three of them are still acting! Let's do another break down.

>> Joey was on "Dancing with the Stars" and the ABC Family show "Melissa & Joey," opposite Melissa Joan Hart.

>> Matthew had a recurring role on "Melissa & Joey" and recently appeared on an episode of "Girl Meets World," reprising his BMW character Jack Hunter.

>> Andy recently guest-starred on "NCIS: Los Angeles" and "CSI: Cyber," and he was a voice in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" video game.

This is pretty much all we have to say, guys. You've grown up quite nicely. ?
