HOW MANY OF THESE THREADS ARE YOU GOING TO POST!?

Hahaha just messing with ya bro!

Anyways, yes, these schedules do bring back memories! Also, people forget the blocks Toon Disney had, like Friday Night Movie/Big Movie Show which showed classic 2-D animated Disney movies from the golden/silver/bronze ages, Renaissance Age, and early Pixar movies too! Then you had Magical World of Toons, Chillin' With the Villains, and Princess Power Hour! I remember all of that clearly. Don't EVER question my Toon Disney history! ??? ;)

I agree 100% Especially The Friday Night Movie/Big Movie Show, many great friday nights I was either watching Cartoon Cartoon Fridays on CN or watching Disney & other animated classics on TD  ;)

Some great memories! 2001 was the very first year we had Toon Disney on our channel lineup and to see some of those shows brought back some of my early 90s memories, as a number of them were part of the "Disney Afternoon" programming block that was around in the early (to mid) 90s.

It was basically the only time you could get the nearly complete history of Disney Afternoon shows all in one nutshell. At least we have DVD sets for some of these, though for others like Aladdin, 101 Dalmatians, and Hercules, still no DVD releases (outisde of an occassional bootleg or limited series exclusive). I was watching a lot more Nick GAS around this time though along with playing all those PC games and web surfing, so I never got the chance to explore this as much as I could.

Personally if you ask me I think Toon Disney (late 90's/early 00's Toon Disney that is) is far superior to Disney Afternoon. I know it's a bit unfair to compare a Cartoon block against an actual cable channel but you still can't deny it. Objectively TD has a perfect variety of Disney Afternoon, ABC OSM, Modern (at the time) Disney Channel, & other great syndicated cartoons!

AND like we said, each Friday they'd show all kinds of classic 2-D animated and Pixar movies from ALL ages. Toon Disney was literally the Disney Animated Powerhouse station from 1998-2004.

That schedule is a reminder of why I kept watching Toon Disney even after I'd long since stopped watching Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon on a daily basis: because the lineup almost entirely consisted of my favorite '90s shows. By 2001, it was pretty much impossible to find shows like Gargoyles on TV anymore so it was cool when we finally Toon Disney on DirecTV around this time.

Yeah for me I don't remember Disney Afternoon so this was a great introduction to a lot of the classics like Ducktales, Talespin, Gargoyles, Gummi Bears, etc.

The channel unfortunately started to decline when Jetix came onto the scene, although I won't continue to harp on that subject

Yeah, however by early 2009 the channel already was past its peak IMO. I would say 2004 was the last good year overall, basically when Toon Disney still showed a lot of Disney Afternoon & One Saturday Morning Cartoons and when new programming and Jetix shows weren't overplayed. It was the perfect balance. Around in 2005 they started to focus exclusively on newer cartoons and Jetix programming

There was no point of keeping Toon Disney anymore by 2006 IMO. Jetix was still in its prime but not Toon Disney.

For those who haven't found out yet. If you go to "Disney Channel On Demand" under the "Fa-La-La-Lidays" section. You'll find some classic Toon Disney shows and Disney Channel shows on there! Just try for yourself! Just avoid the modern shows that are on there as well. Some of the dates or title of the episodes on my cable (Charter) have them wrong. So everybody's is different.

Yeah I I've heard about this, I have yet to check it out though. When I'm done with my finals and I have some free time from work I'll definitely check it out  ;)

Also you have Disney Replay which show reruns of Disney Channel shows from the early-mid 00's on Wednesday Midnights. Although recently they added somewhat recent shows like Wizards of Waverly Place and Jonas L.A on there...

Yes, the Disney Channel does have the Disney Replay in the evening after a certain hour, for sitcoms that were on said channel during the 2000s and early 10s, such as That's So Raven, Suite Life, and Wizards Of Waverly Place.

Thanks for the video man! It was epic indeed. Didn't think someone would do that. It's a great idea that the guy decided to record all those Toon Disney tapes, since a lot of those underrated or forgotten Disney Afternoon or One Saturday Morning shows have either not been released on DVD or probably won't ever be.

I sure do miss Toon Disney and the greatness it had during the late 1990s/early 2000s. Between 2000-2003 we would have moments where we'd lose cable. So it was common for us to record everyday to VHS. We ended up having tons of VHS tapes with shows such as Bonkers, House of Mouse, Fillmore!, Pepper Annand more.

Thats awesome! Its great to see so many other Toon Disney fans on this forum  ;)

BTW, have you ever thought about converting the film of those taped into Blu Ray discs collection like the video of the person I just presented did?

I think that would be a pretty awesome idea if you ask me, sadly I never taped any of these shows as a kid so I have to pray that they show reruns again or possibly buy box sets online or watch episodes on YouTube provided they don't get copystriked  :\'(

I was interested into converting them over to Blu Ray. Seems like a fun idea to make a collection where you can watch old stuff from 10+ years ago (it's almost like a time capsule). I still own a VCR due to taking good care of the one that I got back in 2002, but it's starting to meet its own end soon. So putting to footage on Blu Ray seems like a great idea.

Yeah that's a great idea! It would be good to preserve those Blu Rays and VHS tapes for your kids to watch the classics you grew up with  ;)

What's weird is that I honestly don't remember the 1998-2001 era of Toon Disney that much. Most of my Toon Disney memories were from the 2002 design & onwards. Here's the thing, according to sources, from 1998-2001 they only used the first logo, then from late 2001-mid 2002 the network mixed up the 2nd logo and the 1st logo, then by late 2002 the network only used that 2nd logo up until 2004, but I very clearly remember watching Toon Disney a lot in summer 2002, but for some reason I thought the late 2002-mid 2004 branding of the channel was already there, but as of summer 2002 it wasn't there yet. My memories are a little confused. I looked at a summer 2002 Toon Disney schedule for the weeknights and weekends and that looked familiar. So I don't get it. I remember Timon & Pumbaa, Aladdin, Goof Troop, Hercules, Pepper Ann, Teacher's Pet, and Doug being on the lineup, however, I know that House of Mouse, Lloyd in Space, Mary Kate & Ashley, Recess, and the rest of the One Saturday Morning shows didn't join Toon Disney until late 2002. There may have been promos throughout summer 2002 that those shows were coming soon to Toon Disney. That's probably why.

Yep, that's the power of the Internet right there. It's an essential tool to use for research and communication but it's equally important for nostalgia as well. With the ability of anybody to post something nostalgic on the Internet regardless if it's an old TV schedule or an episode of an old cartoon, it gives us 80's & 90's babies a chance to just sit back, relax, and reminisce  8)

Yeah for me personally I first watched Toon Disney at a relative's house in mid 2001 and I started watching it regularly in late 2001 so I vividly remember a lot of the original bumpers! However I do agree that the late 2002-early 2004 period is hands down the best era for the network  :)

Here's the last Toon Disney stuff I'll post, built from the best toons slogan, @TOON, and a couple other promos. Although I hardly ever went on the Toon Disney website when I was little, I just watched the channel that's all, and I agree that late 2002-mid 2004 was the best era for Toon Disney. That design was so colorful with all the popular shows. It's weird how the 2nd era of Toon Disney started in September 2002, a month after I had already started 1st grade, me thinking it was already around earlier than that time when it wasn't yet, since I know I had started watching Toon Disney before then, especially several nights throughout summer 2002. Then again, from around 2001-mid 2002 was kinda half n' half between the 1st era and 2nd era.

Call me weird, but I always liked the announcer for Toon Disney (the guy that's talking during the promos/bumpers between the episodes). He  has that cartoony and energetic attitude. Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, Disney Channel, and Saturday Mourning Cartoon Blocks such as Kids WB and Foxbox were also like that during the early 2000s.

Yeah it seems like many announcers back then had that cartoony and eccentric vibe going on. Its a shame, when I see bumpers of 'Coming up Next' on kids networks now the announcers just don't sound goofy enough.

Although that could be my nostalgia clouding my judgement
