The death of Fox Kids has its roots in two separate moves in 1994 and 1996. First, Fox's deal with New World Communications to acquire several VHF stations led to Fox Kids being separated from its parent network in many markets, as most of the new Fox affiliates didn't want anything to do with the block (see DisasterDominoes for more on ''that'' whole mess). This relegated Fox Kids to one of two options in the affected markets: be carried by a station taking up a rival network affiliation, or move to a low-rated independent. [[note]]The only exception was in St. Louis, where they tried to move the block to a religious station- unfortunately, the station angered Fox by having their reverend owner replace ad breaks with his own views on controversial topics; not only that, but the station's reception sucked, even on cable and they couldn't handle the flood of stuff related to one of the countries' largest Fox Kids Clubs (possibly second only to Cleveland's, which also had to move to another station, WBNX-55, The WB's station), so after a few months it went to the new Fox station, KTVI 2, a former ABC station.)[[/note]] The second move came in 1996 when Creator/SabanEntertainment bought a stake in the network. This meant that the company was now a joint venture. Later, they bought a network called The Family Channel. They renamed the network Fox Family, and it became a hub for Fox Kids' programming, as well as programming from Creator/{{Teletoon}}. Unfortunately, the network struggled in ratings, thanks to infighting between Fox and Saban over who ran it, no clear strategy, mediocre reaction to their new programming, and an ill-fated attempt to create "Boyz" and "Girlz" networks on digital cable, and they needed to sell it to avoid further money drainage. Saban's production houses and the in-house Fox Kids library (which included most of the Marvel Productions and DePatieFreleng catalog, not including co-productions with Warner Bros., Creator/{{Hasbro}}, and Creator/UnitedArtists) were included in this clause. Long story short, Creator/{{Disney}} won the bid for Fox Family (now known as Creator/ABCFamily) in late 2001, and Fox put the time space up for bidding. The winner? [[Creator/FourKidsEntertainment 4Kids Entertainment]].

Since Disney's purge of the Fox Kids name off its channels, Fox itself has started an InNameOnly Fox Kids block in Finland.

The operations of Fox Kids were moved to Fox's in-house studios in LA until the fall of 2002, when 4Kids took over and named their block Fox Box, and later [[Creator/FourKidsTV 4Kids TV]]. The block came to an end at the end of 2009 due to issues with Fox (they'd already gotten their hands on KidsWB's time space on Creator/TheCW by that time), and now the latter half of the space airs {{infomercial}}s, while the earlier half was given back to the affiliates, allowing them to run the required E/I programs; Fox later partnered with Steve Rotfeld Productions to show the Xploration Station block on several Fox stations, including several that refused to show any other blocks, such as former New World stations owned by Fox and Tribune.
