Out of order

Disney Channel Shows are out of order. Can someone rearange the Phil of the Future episodes so they are in order, and the Hannah Montana episodes are still confusing me.

Playhouse Disney Page

The Playhouse Disney Page is off to a good start but it has no history and is just a list of programs so...if anyone could help...:)

Explaining Revert

The fact that this entity is owned by the Walt Disney Company is mentioned in the article and in the article's catigorization. Therefore, the items added to the see also section are unnecessary. Gentgeen 06:02, 13 Aug 2004 (UTC)

there was a movie in the late 80s/ early 90s that was about tom sawyer and huck finn. it wasnt the one with elijish wood either. it was with a few no name stars in it and i loved it. i cant find it anywhere...there was a scene in the beginning of it where tom and huck help people cheat in a card game by hiding in the attic and looking at other players cards through holes in the ceiling....i dont know if that rings any bells but it was an awesome flick and i cant find it anywhere and i know i saw it on the disney channel as a kid....if anyone knows anything about it email me @

thank you

Hey, I'm trying to find some information on something that just popped into my head but I'm not so sure about it and I was wondering if anyone older than me (or with a better memory) might be able to help. When I was younger, I'm not sure how young exactly, but it was somewhere in the early 90s, I seem to remember there being a show on the Disney Channel that was... a live action Alice in Wonderland? I'm not really sure. It was a series, and I remember it being Alice in Wonderland, but I could be wrong... I just know that I loved it very much and I don't remember anything about it. If it really was an Alice show, I would love to know more information as I am going through a little Alice phase right now and searching for information on Alice and different versions of it. If you know anything about it, please e-mail me at and help me out! Thanks! <3 Shivers

Hi! Being a fan of the old Disney Channel stuff, I have the answers to your questions right here.

  1. The movie described in the first comment is Tom and Huck from 1995, starring Jonathan Taylor Thomas.
  2. Adventures in Wonderland was the name of the show (I used to love it!).

Well, anyway, I'm listing shows for a new category in progress (see shows like DuckTales and Even Stevens for examples) that will partly help to revive the memory of the better channel of the past.

I'll let you know when the new category is created. See you all soon! --Slgrandson 19:30, 25 May 2005 (UTC)--

Disney Channel Original Movies

Apparently some editors for this page consider it a significant distinction that in 1997, Disney Channel started labeling its original movies as "Disney Channel Original Movies" (DCOMs). Thus, the list of the 45 original movies made for the channel from 1983 to 1997 (Tiger Town, Gone Are the Dayes, and many others) have been deleted from this page because they were not referred to as DCOMs. Does it make a major difference that the DCOM phrase is used to refer to post-1997 movies, or is this just a technicality? --Metropolitan90 03:51, Jun 14, 2005 (UTC)

I think that the usage of the term probably would've applied to earlier movies, had the term have been around then. Therefore, the 1983-1996 TV movies that premiered on the Disney Channel should also be listed, but perhaps they should be in a different list. --Nintendo Maximus

DCOM Fraud

Entry Data 9.12.05>> = There's someone on here that keeps making horrible pages for DCOM. Like the last two movies listed. I would fix them and all, but it's taking up valuable time. Getting the posters, info, cast, and the box at the bottom. The other pages were good though. It's the first time in months somebody besides me did some pages. The TWITCHES page was the worse. I've never seen such trash. I know I wasn't such hot stuff when I started out but at least I could spell. (no offense to fraud) --User:Allenk893--

'Promo logo'

I've copied this from Image talk:Disneyident.jpg:

What does a 'promo logo' mean? It doesn't fit in with any of the other logos on the Disney Channel page...isn't it one of the idents used by the Disney Channel UK when they launched? BillyH 16:44, 1 October 2005 (UTC)

Response: By 'Promo', what I mean is that it was used temporarily by Disney Channel during 1995. Probably to promote a happy halloween perhaps.

Disney Channel Changes

I don't know what to do. Most of these pages were worked hard by everyone. Why are the movie pages being erased? They've been there for months. Especially the Twitches page. Since it was a wreck at first, I simply trie to fix it by adding a summarization,cast, and external links. As usual. I don't know why whoever tried to erase it. It was better than the previous deleted ones.

User:Allenk893 13 October 2005 (UTC)

Brother, I agree. Something is wrong with Disney Channel. We don't need "Lizzie McGuire" or "Kim Possible". NO! Bring us back to the good old days when we could look forward to the Mickey Mouse Club or Adventures in Wonderland! Stop messing with our Disney Channel!


Is it really necessary to show every Disney Channel logo ever used? I say show the current one, maybe the original one, and that's it. tregoweth 01:58, 14 October 2005 (UTC)

BRING THE 80's LOGOS BACK! It's a reminder of what Disney Channel once was (and hopefully will be again someday).

Fate of Jetix

What's going on with Jetix???? Is it REALLY moving to Disney Channel? Will this chaos ever stop??????

What is Disney thinking????

As you may not know, I am a silent advocate for this network (The Disney Channel). I grew up with the old logo (when free previews were on). Mom taped movies from the channel when they had these previews. When Disney changed its logo the first time, I thought it was OK. When they took away some great shows, I didn't like it as much. But NOW, Disney Channel's going to have actual COMMERCIALS! That's the dumbest thing I've EVER heard! Forgive me for shouting but: WHAT IS DISNEY THINKING???????? What are they doing to itself????? Does it have to be like every kids channel in the world? What is going on? 15:12, 22 January 2006 (UTC)

Are they Reeally going to have real commercials that advertise things that are not advertising disney channel stuff? Do you know when they are going to start showing real commercials? I wish they would not play playhouse disney channel, I think they should make a new channel for that. They should do that. --Sirideroo

Jetix and Commercials

I can't believe there will be commercials. Jetix on Disney? What the heck? This is so wrong.

I can't believe it either. What happened to the carefree days of the early 90's Disney Channel? Our network is corrupted! 22:27, 22 January 2006 (UTC)

I read that only WITCH will be on Disney Channel. That's a relief. I never liked that show anyway. 01:55, 23 January 2006 (UTC)

It looks like our troubles may be over. ALL RIGHT! 12:58, 23 January 2006 (UTC)

I hope so. I really don't like W.I.T.C.H though. I guess it's a small price to pay. I wish they would make a large variety of shows before repeating them. Like have shows air on certain days at certain times so all can be seen. Why have the same shows on abc, disney, Toon disney, and abc family?

Disney is funny like that. They figure the more shows they air on different networks, the more money they get. It all boils down to the almighty dollar. Would Walt Disney (bless his soul) want it that way? 12:10, 24 January 2006 (UTC)

If anyone could contribute and build up the Playhouse Disney Page that would be cool

I know we would have more things to learn from Disney channel page, also we would learn alot more about the history of Disney from this page, and alot more interesting things we never knew!

The Campaign to Save Disney Shows

Does this section belong in Wikipedia? I think it was just inserted as part of the "Save Phil of the Future" campaign. The IP who added it (, has contributed almost exclusively to the "The Campaign to Save Disney Shows" section of this article and Phil of the Future (and specifically the "The Campaign to Save Phil of the Future" section). His/her only other contribution was inserting negative (and false), now removed information in Hannah Montana, the show which many feel is POTF's replacement. Does anyone else see any reason why this section should or should not be removed or edited, or links to the campaign's website deleted? Gaagaagiw 08:06, 23 April 2006 (UTC)

Well Haversham Hall is the show that is replacing Phil, not Hannah Montana. --Sirideroo

Hannah Montana favority

Do not add people to the Circle of stars that have not even sung a song with them. Someone added Jason Earles, Miley Cyrus, Emily Osment, and Mitchel Musso to the circle of stars. Please do not do this again!!

Where did Future Disney on Disney Channel Page Go?

Who Deleted the part in the page Disney Channel Page go that was entiled Future Disney? Where it showed the new shows coming out nad The Movies. Well Somone Answer me soon please. --Sirideroo

This is not a blog, therefore it was deleted. 22:31, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

Buzz Lightyear and Timon and Pumbaa

Buzz Lightyear of Star Command and Timon and Pumbaa are now back on disney at 12:30 and 1:00. So Don't Delete them from Disney Channel today.

WHo changed it

Who changed the names of the sections, these new ones suck —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) . --Slgr@ndson (page - messages - contribs) 19:51, 29 June 2006 (UTC)

I think I did it. The old ones were WAAAY bad. -TrackerTV 03:11, 1 July 2006 (UTC)

Zoogs and Money

You barely see any Non disney commercials, how does this channel make any money? Also Zoogs should be explained more. Also, what happened to the Zoogs? They took them off Disney.

I believe that happened when Disney changed logos. I would assume that given the fact that there are no Zoog traces in the channel today.

I do not know how Disney makes money, but the ABC and ESPN commercials help, most likely. I don't even know why they don't have commercials: I think it's because of the controversy with junk food sales. -TrackerTV 23:16, 15 July 2006 (UTC)

Criticism section

Shouldn't there be a section that describes the criticism that Disney Channel gets?

Classic Disney Channel

I recall, around 2004, at the same time VH-1 Mega Hits used to be on digital cable, that there were two very-low tier Disney digital stations. One was showing nothing but old cartoons, and the other was showing nothing but old TV shows and movies. I remember the name of one channel to be Classic Disney or Disney Classic, but I can't remember the other one. These channels were on the Cox Cable system in Las Vegas, NV.

Disney Afternoon was NOT on the Disney channel

Simple. The Disney Afternoon was syndicated, not on the Disney channel. I'm not sure who is going around with this misinformation but they are obviously more committed to spreading misinformation than i am in fixing it. But i did want to point it out if someone wants to get to the bottom of it.Wickedjacob (talk) 06:05, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
