The Disney Channel began in 1983. Originally it was a pay channel that showed classic Disney cartoons and programing. Later it would show a new version of "The Mickey Mouse Club" and current Disney movies. It has since become a channel targeted to pre-teens.

1 I recently watched Disney channel and saw something interesting: "Have a Laugh", a segment where a classic cartoon would be shown. I was elated...FINALLY, we get to see the good old cartoons that made Disney great! I chose to watch it, but there was a red flag: the words "Short Version" on the title card. "It's 7 minutes or less. How do you make a 7 minute cartoon a "short version"?", I thought. I got my answer in the 3 minute long horror show that followed. The old music was gone; replaced by new music. Classic sound effects were replaced with NEW sound effects, and the original voices were replaced with those of the voice actors they have now. The episode was Mickey's Trailer. The scene where Goofy distracts a cow so Mickey can milk it was deleted. I was so disgusted that I changed the channel after watching the drawers smash watermelon into Goofy's face. They pulled a George Lucas...before they owned Star Wars! Their motto should be: "Disney: Withholding or desecrating the classics". -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 2, 2013, 7:31 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I had a roommate last year that was obsessed with Good Luck Charlie. He was a 20-year-old male who wanted to be a lawyer. Seriously. -- Submitted By: () on July 14, 2012, 10:19 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Good news: they aired Snow White recently! Bad news: classic movies of this caliber occur only once in a blue moon. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on September 15, 2011, 8:28 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

5 Teen group or individual who is secretly a really important person or have some sort of incredible ability must live with normal people while adults are intelectually challenged. There, Disney Channel for ya. -- Submitted By: (Saunich) on November 17, 2010, 3:23 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

7 Long ago, in the past, when they played a movie, it would be uninterrupted. That changed over a decade ago when they had commercial breaks. Advertising themselves. #1: Look, if you're going to interrupt a movie, it should be from your sponsors, so we know who paid for this program to air. #2: If you're airing commercials from your sponsors, WTF? I already paid to watch this show when I bought the cable/satellite package. So now, I'm paying for it TWICE? #3: Interrupting a show to promote yourself does nothing but piss off your customers. They'll buy the movies on tapes (DVD wasn't available at the time) and you'll lose customers who dump the Disney channel so they can watch their uninterrupted movies on home video. I hoped they would dump the mid-movie commercials, but no dice. That was the BTF moment for me. It kept going downhill from there. Good bye, classics. Hello, crap! -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 6, 2010, 8:18 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Disney has BTF to such a degree I now honestly believe it's an active force for evil, going out of its way to corrupt kids' minds and doing it right out in the open. I completely fail to see how anyone who grows up watching what's on the Disney Channel *won't* destroy America. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 6, 2010, 6:44 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Disney still shows kids programming... if your kid is somehow up at 4 in the morning, or is ditching school at 11 in the morning. Teen programming?!? Couldn't Disney at least have the class to create another channel? -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on May 5, 2010, 3:03 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
10 Went BTF in the early 2000s. At that time, some family friends of mine who I was seeing a lot of had young grandchildren spending a lot of time in their house, so the Disney Channel was on in the background pretty much all the time and I couldn't help but notice it. It seemed to have a collective case of bratty (and snotty) attitude, and might as well have had as a tagline "We annoy the hell out of your parents and we're damn proud of it." Since then, unless they happen to be showing a classic movie I want to see again (which anymore is a pretty rare occurrence), I just haven't been interested in watching it. No great loss -- it sure doesn't sound I've been missing much! -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on May 5, 2010, 7:27 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
11 When Disney Channel stopped being a pay channel and went to basic cable. The programming got worse and worse, plus commercials (ALWAYS self-promotion spots for Disney Channel) started appearing. Slowly the old cartoons and shows disappeared in favor of new things that had absolutely nothing to do with Disney. By 2003, the channel stopped caring about the young children and family demographics and aimed solely at teenagers. The result: Hannah Montana, High School Musical, and many more similar steaming piles of garbage. Just like MTV, Bravo, A&E and many other cable channels, Disney Channel lost its initial purpose and transformed into something unrecognizable and boring. It has long boned. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 5, 2010, 12:52 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
12 I remember one night turning on the Disney Channel to watch Vault Disney; the segment with Mickey Mouse Club, Ink & Paint Club with it's classic cartoons, and any number of classic Disney movies they would have. Instead I got subjected to Lizzie McGuire and that crap! Why the hell do they put this on at night?!? No preteen girl is going to be up this late! Since then Disney Channel had become to me to be Dickweed Channel! -- Submitted By: (Acobjum) on March 23, 2010, 11:54 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
13 Oh, I think it boned from way back. Remember when after the announcer would tel what the next show was, they'd have a post-Walt Mickey's voice pipe up "That sounds GREAT!" ? Just ONCE I'd have liked Mickey to have said something like "I've seen better.", "Not bad but nothing to write home about" or "That sounds AWFUL but that was all we could get!" Of course, I haven't watched it in years since that they've dumped every one of their classic shows and cartoons in favor of the tween trends of the moment! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 1, 2009, 3:27 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
14 This is insane! As another person mentioned, the only time you ever see Mickey anymore is on the logo. How, in the name of God, do shows like Hannah Montana, Jonas, and the Suite Life of Zack and Cody have ANYTHING to do with Disney? Walt must be turning over in his grave right about now. -- Submitted By: (ScottyB) on August 1, 2009, 8:56 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
15 With all of the wonderful history of animation and classic movies that bear the Disney name, why are we stuck with all these ridiculous teeny bopper shows? I used to love the channel, but now it completely sucks. -- Submitted By: (EricP) on June 9, 2009, 3:04 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

18 How many of you remember when having the Disney Channel was like having HBO? We never ordered it but it was great when they did the previews. When it became available on cable and satellite it was still good for a while, they would show the movies which don't get old. Then they started showing the live action shows and targeting the pre-teen audience. It became terrible, just as the Walt Disney Comapany is. I think Walt Disney is spinning in his grave because of all of this. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on May 3, 2009, 7:01 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
19 Disney Channel boned when animated shows were largely replaced by live action. Even though most of Nickelodeon's recent cartoons suck, at least they still have a good balance of live-action and animation. -- Submitted By: (LoyalPigeon) on April 30, 2009, 12:15 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
20 I agree with regulus on Disney Channel. Most of the crud on there gets repeated as "E/I" shows on ABC on Saturday mornings. If I owned an ABC station, I'd dump it all for original shows and other worthy E/I programming. -- Submitted By: (JamesCraven) on April 29, 2009, 8:51 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
