- Flagship Franchise: DuckTales (1987) is this for the block as a whole. It is by far the most famous and popular show aired on the block, and one of the only ones to be added back after it was rotated out.
- No Problem with Licensed Games: The games released for these shows are generally considered good, though the TaleSpin NES game isn't remembered as fondly. Still, one could imagine the excitement for when The Disney Afternoon Collection was released.
- Seasonal Rot: If one considers each new lineup of animated series "a season", fans generally agree that the later "seasons" featured series with lazier writing than the earlier "seasons", but there is no consensus on when the rot took hold. One common opinion is that Goof Troop marked a turning point; as a suburban family sitcom, it was at odds with the fantasy, adventure, and crime-fighting series that had preceded it.
