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 country's 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/SunbowEntertainment/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 Freeform]]) in late 2001, effectively giving them the last laugh after the aforementioned dispute 11 years ago, and Fox put the time space up for bidding. The winner? [[Creator/FourKidsEntertainment 4Kids Entertainment]].

Meanwhile, Disney moved the "Kids" moniker over to Creator/{{ABC}}, replacing the previous Creator/OneSaturdayMorning block, and shared new ''Power Rangers'' episodes until the creation of the Jetix block on ABC Family and Creator/ToonDisney, at which point Jetix took over premieres until ''Series/PowerRangersRPM'', which aired exclusively on ABC Kids, as did a re-versioning of the first season until Creator/SabanBrands bought back the rights. All of the international Fox Kids channels (except the Australian one which was retained by Fox, but later shut down anyway) became Jetix, and most later became Creator/DisneyXD, though a few Eastern European countries got their own version of Creator/DisneyChannel instead.
