In 1997, it became apparent to {{Disney}} that the company had so many cartoons in its archives, and too many cartoons to put on the 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.

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 on TheDisneyAfternoon, along with their Saturday morning fare. As time went on, shows from Disney's more recent children's programming block, Disney's One Saturday Morning 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.

However, in later years, Toon Disney became more (in)famous for its severe case of NetworkDecay, and the process that led to its overhaul. On February 14, 2004, Jetix, the result of Disney buying out [[Creator/SabanEntertainment Saban]] and Creator/FoxKids, began airing in prime-time, consisting of [[{{Macekre}} poorly-dubbed anime]] that had nothing to do with Disney other than being owned by the company and, of all things, ''Franchise/PowerRangers'', which certainly wasn't ''exactly'' a cartoon.

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 DisneyChannel 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 ''TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody'' to their regular schedule as well. In the Jetix programming, Toon Disney ran reruns of cartoons based on Marvel Comics superheroes, most likely to cash in on {{The Movie}}s that the characters were now starring in. In addition, Jetix picked up reruns of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain'', and ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', completely ignoring the fact that those cartoons were produced by Disney's biggest competitor, WarnerBros

In 2008, Disney announced that, due to the channel's demographic preferring to instead watch Creator/CartoonNetwork and Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} they were dropping Toon Disney and replacing it with an all-boys' network called Creator/DisneyXD, come February 13, 2009. In other words, Toon Disney has effectively become Jetix, albeit without the Jetix name.
