A made-for-syndication [[UsefulNotes/BlockProgramming programming block]] featuring many of Creator/{{Disney}}'s original television shows that ran from [[TheNineties 1990 until 1999]], though some of the shows that aired in the line-up (like ''Gummi Bears'' and ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers'') aired between 1987 and 1989 and weren't included in the Disney Afternoon line-up until they were syndicated[[note]]Prior to that, ''Gummi Bears'' was seen on NBC, then ABC's, Saturday-morning blocks, and ''Chip 'N Dale Rescue Rangers'' was on the Disney Channel (then a premium service)[[/note]].

During its run it spawned an attraction at [[Ride/DisneyThemeParks Disneyland]], a soundtrack (still available on iTunes), a comic book published by Creator/{{Marvel}}, and a series of [[SugarWiki/NoProblemWithLicensedGames very good]] [[UsefulNotes/NintendoEntertainmentSystem NES]] {{Platform Game}}s developed by Creator/{{Capcom}} (who are planning to re-release them[[note]]''VideoGame/DuckTales'' and its sequel, ''VideoGame/ChipNDaleRescueRangers'' and its sequel, ''VideoGame/TaleSpin'', and ''VideoGame/DarkwingDuck''[[/note]] for UsefulNotes/PlayStation4, UsefulNotes/XboxOne, and UsefulNotes/MicrosoftWindows in 2017). It also had a major comic event in ''Magazine/DisneyAdventures'' magazine called ''ComicBook/TheLegendOfTheChaosGod''. A couple of shows received revivals in comics: ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' had an [[ScrewedByTheNetwork all-too-short]] (and yet [[ScheduleSlip too long]]) comic by Slave Labor Graphics, while Creator/KaBOOMComics introduced ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' elements in the long-running ''[[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse Uncle Scrooge]]'' comics, then launched new series for ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'', ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers'' and ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales''; though these all ended when Disney bought out Creator/MarvelComics and cut ties with Creator/BoomStudios.

* {{Revival}}: ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'', ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'', and ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers'' eventually got comic books that picked up where their shows left off (after a TimeSkip in Darkwing's case, and after season two in Gargyle's case, rendering season three CanonDiscontinuity almost entirely).

** ''WesternAnimation/TaleSpin'' might count as OldShame due to quality and partially due to the legal issues surrounding the originally unauthorized use of King Louie.

** ''WesternAnimation/TaleSpin'' might count as OldShame due to quality and partially due to the legal issues surrounding the originally unauthorized use of King Louie. That said, it is ''also'' the only one in the lot to have all of its episodes on DVD, at least so far.

The block was two hours long, consisting of four half-hour shows. The lineup changed after every season, adding a new show to the end of the line up while the first show would be bumped off. Eventually, the block was shortened to ninety minutes in 1997. While the block was a hit, it eventually became unpractical when Disney began producing more shows than could be featured in a two-hour block. It ended in 1999, after a successful ten year run.

run (though for the last two years, it didn't have a name besides the internal name "Disney-Kellogg Alliance", as Kellogg's would be a large sponsor), though it did receive a SpiritualSuccessor in the form of ''Disney's One Too'', which supplanted the remnants of this block and served as a spinoff to ''One Saturday Morning'', airing on Creator/{{UPN}} stations until 2003.
