The world has changed a lot since Friends went off the air over 13 years ago in 2004. But when you look at photos of the Friends cast in Season 1 versus Season 10, it sometimes appears like even more time elapsed in the 10 years that the show was on than from the end of the series to now. The '90s fashion rocked by the Friends gang in Season 1 is at times super '90s, but you still love Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Joey, Chandler, and Ross all the same by the time the final season comes around.

As for the rest of the cast, not every recurring character made their first appearance in Season 1. But no matter when the 24 characters in this slideshow joined the beloved series, they made their mark over a span of seasons. From children to parents to significant others to randos to the friends themselves, see how Friends characters changed from their first appearances to their last.
