Disney Channel

The Disney Channel is a cable TV network run by The Walt Disney Company that went on the air in 1984. Disney Channel features family-oriented programming, much of it aimed at pre-teens and younger adolescents. Most Disney Channel programming, surprisingly, does not feature the "classic" Disney characters such as Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and Goofy, but they are not completely absent, either.

The only actual spinoff of the Disney Channel is Toon Disney, which features cartoons either created or distributed by Disney. The ABC Family Channel (originally CBN and later The Family Channel), is now owned by Disney and also features some programming similar to the Disney Channel.

Today's Disney Channel includes such hit shows as Lizzie McGuire, Boy Meets World, The Proud Family, Sister, Sister, The Famous Jett Jackson, Even Stevens, and Kim Possible.
