The Disney Afternoon (abbreviated as TDA since 1994) was a created-for-syndication two-hour television programming block which aired from September 10, 1990, until August 1997. At that time, it was taken out of syndication, and a new Disney weekday afternoon block was started on UPN. The Disney Afternoon was produced by the Walt Disney Company.
The two hour block was broken up into four half-hour segments, each of which contained a cartoon series. As each season ended, the first cartoon shown in the lineup would typically be dropped, and a new one added to the end. The Disney Afternoon itself featured unique animated segments consisting of its own opening and "wrappers" around the cartoon shows shown.
This block did not air in every market across the United States , but for those markets that did not air the block in full, individual shows featured on The Disney Afternoon could be packaged by themselves. In Europe , there was a similar series called the Disney Festival , in Denmark it was called Disney Sjov , in Russia (when translated from Russian) and in Spain it was known as Disney Club , and in Latin America it was referred to as Disney Show .
