In spite of being filled with more E/I content than any of the other Saturday morning blocks (and pointing it out by having some guy say "Illuminating Television" over each show's intro sequence), ''One Saturday Morning'' was a very popular block, managing to stay on ABC for five years; this was thanks to the clever writing and strong characterization of the series it aired. In its third season, a companion block was added in the form of ''Disney's One Too'', which ran on {{UPN}} as a replacement for their own "Kids" block (in spite of being a corporate sibling to [[{{Nickelodeon}} a competitor]], though the time may have been given to Disney due to UPN's President at the time, Dean Valentine, having formerly been a Disney executive) on both weekday afternoons and Sunday mornings. (The weekday block was originally going to be called Whomptastic, but they probably changed it to the more fitting name probably because it would not make sense to name a block after the ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}''-made UnusualEuphemism for "suck".) Like TheDisneyAfternoon before it, One Saturday Morning also garnered its own soundtrack album of musical highlights from the shows (but confusingly, it was only released on cassette, and unlike its predecessor, it has never been made available on iTunes; copies of this cassette are extremely rare).

Three of its shows became feature films: ''WesternAnimation/Dougs1stMovie'' (originally intended for a DirectToVideo release), which, while doing well in the box office, bombed with critics; ''WesternAnimation/RecessSchoolsOut'', which was by far the most successful movie of the three; and ''WesternAnimation/TeachersPet'' (the only show from 2000-2003 to get a movie), which bombed in the box office and did well with critics.

* {{Getting Crap Past the Radar}}: The earwormy theme song borrows a tune from an Appalachian folk-song called "That's What You Do With Baby", which suggests unkind things to do "with Baby" if Baby doesn't settle down.

Meanwhile, most of the shows featured on the block went into syndicated reruns on the DisneyChannel and ToonDisney, until the latter channel having since been replaced with Creator/DisneyXD. ''WesternAnimation/SabrinaTheAnimatedSeries'' was also rerun on DiC/Cookie Jar's CBS Saturday morning blocks from 2007 until early 2011. ''WesternAnimation/OneHundredAndOneDalmatiansTheSeries'' was reran on DisneyChannel, but at 4:00 AM (as part of Disney Junior (for whatever reason, as it's not a preschool show at all) for a short time in early 2011). ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' was rerun on Creator/DisneyXD for a short time in October 2011. It's not the same anymore.

* ''How Things Werk''- Presented as a parody of those 50's educational shorts, a kid named Billy knows how things work, yet "Mr. Werks" then shows up with a nonsensical explanation (ie: elevators are operated not by cables, but by ''giant invisible retirees'').

The year is 1997, TheDisneyAfternoon was running its last leg and dropped the branding, and {{Disney}} had bought out Creator/{{ABC}} two years prior and revised their Saturday morning line-up (notably dropping ''[[WesternAnimation/SonicSatAm Sonic SatAM]]'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{Reboot}}'' in the process). Peter Hastings, a former writer of ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain'', had just fled to them from Creator/WarnerBros out of his frustration with the ExecutiveMeddling happening to the latter cartoon, so he was put in charge of coming up with a new Saturday morning block for ABC. The idea he came up with (as seen in the block's intro sequence) was that the weekdays are represented as buildings, and the building for Saturday is a special one, where it is like "five hours of summer once a week", according to the theme song (ironically, most of the cartoons created for the block would tend to take place at school due to an FCC regulation calling for more educational programming for children and most TV writers thinking this means, "Let's make animated kids-in-school sitcoms"). It was called Disney's One Saturday Morning (the "one" being the building's address number). This also marked the first time ABC's kids programing had an overall theme since the 1970s (with the "Funshine Saturday" brand); otherwise, the block mainly had the famous claymation bumpers used from 1988 to 1993, when they were replaced with bumpers themed after one of the series airing (the 1993-94 and 1994-95 seasons had ''WesternAnimation/BumpInTheNight'', while the 1995-96 season had ''Literature/WhatAMess''); the 1996-97 season, which served as the transitional period, had bumpers with the toy soldiers from ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' and also marked the arrival of several Disney-sourced programs, including ''Doug'' (see below) and ''WesternAnimation/TheMightyDucks''.
