Disney Channel Saturday Mornings is a program block on the Disney Channel in the United States, consisting of Saturday morning cartoons. Disney Channel Saturday Mornings debuted June 18, 2011, as "Toonin' Saturdays", and was rebranded as "Disney Channel Saturday Mornings" in 2012. The block airs Fish Hooks, Phineas and Ferb, Cars Toons: Mater's Tall Tales, Have a Laugh! and Gravity Falls. It occasionally shows new episodes of cartoons on Saturday mornings.

The adoption of a block on Disney Channel coincides with the end of the ABC Kids block, which had aired an outdated loop of Disney Channel original series repeats for several years. ABC and Disney Channel are both owned by The Walt Disney Company; beginning in September 2011, ABC outsourced its educational programming responsibilities to Litton Entertainment, which produces the Weekend Adventure, a block that contains no animated programming.

Programming[edit]

The block shows episodes from Disney Channel Original Series that includes Phineas and Ferb,Fish Hooks, Gravity Falls, Mickey Mouse, and Wander Over Yonder.

The original lineup of the block included Kick Buttowski: Suburban Daredevil, Ultimate Spider-Man and, Tron: Uprising which otherwise aired only on Disney XD.

Unlike ABC Kids and its predecessors, which were required to comply with E/I restrictions, DC Saturday Mornings (being aired on a cable channel) is not subject to those restrictions.
