X-Men (animated series)

The X-Men Animated Series debuted in the 1992-1993 season on the Fox Network. It was part of Fox's Saturday morning lineup, which featured both cartoons, such as X-Men, Bobby's World[?] and Life With Louie[?] and live-action programming, such as Power Rangers, that were directed at young children. This youth-geared Saturday morning and weekday afternoon block of programming exists to this day on Fox, and is known as "Fox Kids".

X-Men was one of the longest-lasting series on Fox Kids, with its final new episode airing in late 1997, after five complete seasons. The show was not removed from the lineup until 1998, after a full six seasons. The show also is one of the highest-rated and most-viewed Saturday morning programs in American history, to this day. During its peak years (1995 and 1996), the show was often shown every weekday afternoon, in addition to Saturday mornings.

After the box office success of the X-Men movie in the summer of 2000, Fox began airing reruns of the successful cartoon on weekday afternoons. This ended in early 2001. Soon after, the cartoon was bought from Fox by ABC Family[?], and reruns began airing there.
