In 1997, it became apparent to Creator/{{Disney}} that the company had so many cartoons in its archives, and too many cartoons to put on the Creator/DisneyChannel's growing schedule, that they decided to make a Creator/CartoonNetwork of their own. On April 18, 1998, the day of the Disney Channel's 15th birthday, Toon Disney, a 24 hour home to all Disney cartoons that had been made at the time (and some they had acquired, mostly by Creator/DicEntertainment) was officially launched.

On February 14, 2004, Jetix, an action-oriented block, made its' debut in prime-time; it was the result of Disney buying out {{Creator/Saban|Entertainment}} and Creator/FoxKids.

At first, Jetix was only a two-hour block (that also aired on ABC Family; they dropped it after two years), but the block chose to expand themselves and took up more and more of the networks' hours. Because of Jetix's expanding, the old Disney cartoons that once made up the majority of the channel's schedule were all dropped one by one in favor of running contemporary shows from the regular Disney Channel that had ''not even been canceled yet''. The channel then began airing live-action movies (a trait that would soon taint Creator/CartoonNetwork as well), soon adding ''Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody'' to their regular schedule as well. In the Jetix programming, Toon Disney ran reruns of cartoons based on Marvel Comics superheroes (this was before Disney bought Marvel and became the outright owner of those cartoons), most likely to cash in on {{The Movie}}s that the characters were now starring in. Jetix also picked up reruns of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain'', and ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', despite being made by Creator/WarnerBros (however, fans of those series were definitely glad Jetix brought them back to TV).

Initially, the main focus of Toon Disney's line-up went to the cartoons that had been around right when it started up, the WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts and the syndicated weekday afternoon shows that had been featured as part of ''WesternAnimation/TheDisneyAfternoon'', along with their Saturday morning fare. As time went on, shows from Disney's more recent children's programming block, ''Main/OneSaturdayMorning'' on Creator/{{ABC}}, soon joined the channel as well, and thus certain changes were made to balance the schedule between the two eras of Disney TV cartoons.
