Remember this Painting "Sisters By Chance Friends By Choice"?

Twin-A-Rooney is the first episode in Season 1 of Liv and Maddie. It first aired on July 19, 2013 to 5.78 million viewers.


In the preview episode, twin sisters Liv and Maddie at long last reunite when Liv returns home to Wisconsin after starring for four years in a hit musical television show, Sing It Loud!, in Hollywood. The Rooney sisters quickly realize their polar opposite personalities put their unbreakable twin bond to the test. While their parents play referee between Liv; a cool, confident, social butterfly who loves to sing, and Maddie; a smart, athletic, high school basketball star who opts for high tops over high heels, brothers Joey and Parker seize the opportunity to capitalize on the chaos and get away with as much as they can.
