The History of Toon Disney

I go through the history of the great channel known as Toon Disney.
July 22, 2013
Toon Disney was Disney's second channel that aired Disney cartoons(some shows weren't from Disney),no reality shows or sitcoms,just cartoons(like cartoon network). We start our journey in 1998,the channel's launch. During that year, Disney Channel aired sneak previews of the channel almost every day during the week. The first thing Toon Disney ever aired was the iconic mickey scene from Fantasha.

This look lasted from 1998-2001.

In 2002, Toon Disney got a new logo and some new shows from Disney's 1 Saturday Morning and Disney Channel itself. During this period and the channel's launch, it had awesome blocks like Chilin' With The Villans,Hanging with the heroes, Magical World of Toons, Princess Power Hour,@Toon,and more!

This look lasted from 2002-2004.

In 2004,the channel got yet another new look that looked very similar to the Disney Channel logo. At this point More shows from Disney Channel got added along with a new action block from AB FC Family called, Jetix. Jetix aired their own shows like Yin Yang Yo!, Captain Flamingo, and Super Monkey Team Hyperforce Go!. And other action shows and anime like Sonic X, Batman, Superman, Digimon, W.I.T.C.H, Power Rangers, Beyblade, Marvel Cartoons, and more. In this era they had a couple of new blocks called Toon Disney Big Movie Show and Superstacked Weekends. As time went by, Jetix took up more and more of the Toon Disney schedule, and fans of the channel complained about this issue. And also, more classic Toons Disney shows got taken off and more Disney Channel shows were there than Toon Disney shows. During the channel's final years, it started going downhill with Jetix taking up 85% of the schedule and Disney Channel reality shows Zach and Cody and That's so Raven being added to the channel. In late 2008, it was announced that Toon Disney would be replaced by a new channel called, Disney XD. Phineas and Ferb and Zach and Cody were an in dicadion of the transition.

This look lasted from 2004-2009.

Finally on February 13th, 2009, Toon Disney died and got replaced by Disney XD. The last show that Toon Disney aired was The Incredible Hulk during Jetix, and the first show Disney XD aired was Phineas and Ferb.
Many fans were devastated by the fall of Toon Disney and the rise of the evil channel known as Disney XD. But, some people have tried to bring Toon Disney back, one person made a stream called, Classic Toon Disney.

And someone else's doing a project to bring back this amazing channel called, The Toon Disney Project. Check out the two videos of this so far below.

So in conclusion, Toon Disney was the perfect place for Disney animation, other cartoons, and Jetix. It lived for a good 11 years, and this channel has place in our hearts.

The end.
