->''"There's so much to do, getting ready just for you,''\\
''Everybody's busy, bringing you a Disney Afternoon!"''

A made-for-syndication programming block featuring many of {{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 ''ChipAndDaleRescueRangers'') aired between 1987 and 1989.

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.

During its run it spawned an attraction at [[DisneyThemeParks Disneyland]], a soundtrack (still available on iTunes), and a comic book published by {{Marvel}}. It also had a major comic event in ''DisneyAdventures'' magazine called ''TheLegendOfTheChaosGod''. Currently a couple of shows have been revived in comics: ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' had an [[ScrewedByTheNetwork all-too-short]] (and yet [[ScheduleSlip too long]]) comic by Slave Labor Graphics, while Boom! Studios has begun featuring ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' elements in the long-running ''[[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse Uncle Scrooge]]'' comics, then launched new series for ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'', ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers'' and ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales''.

The block is associated with the following tropes:
* CrisisCrossover[=/=]CrossThrough: ''TheLegendOfTheChaosGod'', a five part story which ran in ''DisneyAdventures'' magazine.
* EarlyBirdCameo: WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck and Gosalyn appeared in the opening a year before their show debuted.
* FiveEpisodePilot: Most of the shows in the block were known for this, and the block itself may have been one of the biggest influences for this sort of thing in animation.
* NetworkRedHeadedStepchild: ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' due to its dark nature, ''SchnookumsAndMeat'' because of its GrossoutShow nature.
** ''WesternAnimation/TaleSpin'' might count as OldShame due to the legal issues surrounding the originally unauthorized use of King Louie.
* {{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).
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: As per usual for a Disney Afternoon cartoon.
* TransplantedCharacterFic: ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers'', ''WesternAnimation/TaleSpin'' and ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop'' take beloved Disney characters and transplant them into radically different new settings.
* SpotlightStealingSquad: ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' pretty much took over the {{Marvel}} comic.
* VanillaEdition: Pretty much all the shows lucky enough to get a DVD release.
** And of those, most of them used the episode cuts aired on Toon Disney, which utterly ruins some of the shows.
* VillainTeamUp: The ''Disney Afternoon Live!'' show contained one between [[WesternAnimation/TaleSpin Don Karnage]] and [[WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers Fat Cat]].
