Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

"There's so much to do, getting ready just for you,
Everybody's busy, bringing you a Disney Afternoon!"

Cquote2.svg


A made-for-syndication programming block featuring many of Disney's original television shows that ran from 1990 until 1999.

The block was two hours long, consisting of four half-hour shows. The lineup changed after every season, adding a new show to the end of the line up while the first show would be bumped off. Eventually, the block was shortened to ninety minutes in 1997. While the block was a hit, it eventually became unpractical when Disney began producing more shows than could be featured in a two-hour block. It ended in 1999, after a successful ten year run.

During its run it spawned an attraction at Disneyland, a soundtrack (still available on iTunes), and a comic book published by Marvel. It also had a major comic event in Disney Adventures magazine called The Legend of the Chaos God. Currently a couple of shows have been revived in comics: Gargoyles had an all-too-short (and yet too long) comic by Slave Labor Graphics, while Boom! Studios has begun featuring DuckTales (1987) elements in the long-running Uncle Scrooge comics, then launched new series for Darkwing Duck, Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers and DuckTales (1987).
