'''Fox Kids''' was a [[SaturdayMorningCartoon Saturday morning]] and weekday afternoon programming block that aired from 1990 to 2002 on Creator/{{Fox}}. It has aired shows produced by Fox's children's division, as well as those made by Creator/DiCEntertainment, Creator/SabanEntertainment, Creator/WarnerBros, and [[Creator/MarvelComics Marvel Productions]]. It often aired on Fox owned-and-operated stations, though it also aired on those owned by Creator/{{UPN}}, Creator/TheWB, and independent stations.

They also aired a mini-block called ''The Fox Cubhouse'', which was aimed at preschoolers. This would last from 1994 to 1996.

Fox Kids even had cable channels in Latin America, Europe, and Australia (all of which later became [[Creator/ToonDisney Jetix]], and most later became Creator/DisneyXD, though a few Eastern European countries got their own version of Creator/DisneyChannel instead).

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 affilation, or move to a low-rated independent. 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, and they needed to sell it to avoid further money drainage. Believe it or not, the block and its shows 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]].

4Kids took over in fall 2002 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 space airs nothing but {{infomercial}}s.

Meanwhile, the block would also be succeeded by the Jetix block on ToonDisney (later Creator/DisneyXD) while Disney moved the "Kids" moniker over to Creator/{{ABC}}.

Fox Kids is widely held in high regard by people raised in TheNineties. A side effect of this includes substantial [[MisBlamed misblame]] directed towards both Disney and 4Kids for supposedly destroying the block, even though the reality (as explained above) was more complex than that.
