    A bunch of old Fox shows sometimes pop up on ABC Family, though how they got to that point is beyond me.

    The current Fox Box will be renamed 4Kids TV, effective this Saturday, January 22. A commercial for the renamed block can be found here.




    It's official. Fox Kids and Fox Box are dead.

    Digimon was awesome, it wasn't ******ed like Pokemon, I'm sorry but pokemon simply didn't go anywhere. Digimon had ongoing storylines, character arcs, and what not that actually evolved, it was pretty sweet. To this day I wish I could buy Digimon Season Sets :(

    History

    The Fox Kids Network began in the Fall of 1990, originally headed up by division president Margaret Loesch and airing programming originally for 30 minutes per day Monday-Friday and three hours on Saturday morning. In 1991 it expanded to 90 minutes on weekdays and four hours on Saturday Mornings. In 1992 the network eventually expanded to 2 and a half hours per day during the week. In 1993 Fox Kids was up to 3 hours per day of children's programming -- some affiliates airing all three hours in succession (generally those with morning newscasts) from 2-5 PM, and some others (those without news operations) showing the first hour in the morning and the latter two in the afternoon. Half a dozen of the Fox stations with evening Newscasts that opted to take Fox Kids ran it earlier in the afternoon 1-4 PM. (examples KTVI 2 St Louis, 10 WALA Mobile, 2 KHON Hawaii)

    In 1996, it merged with Haim Saban's Saban Entertainment, Inc.. In 1999 the Fox Kids programming weekday block was trimmed to 2 hours along with an additional 30 minute educational show called "The Magic School Bus". In 2000 affiliates were all given options to push the block up to 2-4 PM instead of 3-5 PM. In the 6 or so markets with 5 PM Newscasts that carried Fox Kids (such as St Louis and New Orleans for example) they already were running the block an hour early back in 1996. In October 2001, Saban and News Corp sold the group to The Walt Disney Company, at which time Fox discontinued the daytime children's programming, giving the time back to their affiliates. It maintained a Saturday morning schedule until 2002, when it gave the time to 4Kids Entertainment, producers of Pokémon.

    The Walt Disney Company dissolved the U.S. Fox Kids brand in 2001, and it was not until 2004 when they started their own brand, known as Jetix. However, the worldwide Fox Kids, are slowly now being converted to Jetix, but in Latin America and Europe the rebranding has already taken place.

    I watched practically all of these shows.

    For a while, I almost thought some of them only existed in my head, because nobody talked about them...

    I miss those days sooooo much. The early 90's line up was my favorite I could watch those shows all the way through, still would watch them all except for Power Rangers. I was thinking last Saturday about how I used love watching Saturday morning cartoons and now the only show I watch is Batman, but I'm getting sick of that already.

    That one with "Shark Doggy Dog". HILARIOUS!

    Now that this thread has been resurrected, I must ask if anybody has a link to some old Fox kids commercials? You know the ones, "Fox kids is cool" or "every body knowwwws, it's on fox", or any of those? I LOVE those. I'm looking for them in Windows media viewer if possible.

    Oh, and(one more post then i'll leave this thread alone for awhile lol), I just wanted to say that I think Fox kids was the best block of children's programming ever created. I mean, it was very diverse, and usually very smartly written and(with some exception) alot of it could be enjoyed by people of all ages(not just children).

    I remember some of my favorites on the network being:
    X-men
    Batman
    Tiny Toon Adventures(one of the best "funny" cartoons EVER)
    Animaniacs(ditto)
    Eekstravaganza
    Bobby's World(i have TWO bobby dvds)
    Life with Louie
    The Tick
    C-bear and Jamal
    Beetleborgs(big bad AND metallix)
    Power Rangers

    I never count Beetlejuice because originally it was an ABC cartoon. They just showed reruns on Fox kids.
    But yeah, cartoons nowadays aren't as huge a deal. Getting up on Saturday morning used to be an EVENT that you'd look forward to all week but now, it's just like,"yay, I can sleep in" and I don't think it's just cause many of us are now much older. It's cause there is simply nothing there anymore to wake up too.

    I remember getting up every Saturday morning to watch REal Ghostbusters and new adventures of Winnie the Pooh on ABC or Ninja Turtles and Garfield on CBS. There's simply NOTHING of that quality on anymore.

    Agreed. Fox Kids was just a pivital point in the history of Saturday morning. It's a shame kids these days will never know it.

    I too would love to see any old Fox Kids commercials if nayone has some. I have every episode of X-Men on taoe form their original airdates and they are jam packed with commercials, the sweepstakes, fox kids radio and magazine ads, tv shows, then regular commercials that are jsut awsome because they are form through out the course of the 90's.

    I just don't have the stuff to be able to transfer, nor would i know how to anyway.

    The only thing I really watch on Sat. now is TMNT, Johnny Test, The Batman, and maybe that G.I. Joe Sigma if I'm not busy by then. I never want to utter this phrase again, but the Japanese have succeeded in making The Baroness hotter than her original incarnation.
