Disney Channel has played an integral role in many people's childhoods. Whether you grew up in the 1990s or the 2000s, there were plenty of excellent TV series on the network. While there are plenty of live-action shows and game series, there is just something special about the cartoons that aired on The Disney Channel. They had a uniqueness about them you just couldn't find on Cartoon Network or Nickelodeon. From old Disney cartoons to more recent offerings, these are the best Disney Channel cartoons of all time and most are available to watch right now on Disney+.
The cartoons that have aired on the channel over the years certainly run the gamut of genres. Phineas and Ferb was a long-running series for the network about the wacky stepbrothers who invent and scheme their way through various misadventures. Then you have something like Gargoyles, which follows a gang of ancient gargoyles as they protect New York against various supernatural threats. It just goes to show how committed the channel was to ensuring there was something for everyone over the years.
Some of these Disney animated series went off the air decades ago while others are still cranking out new episodes today. Thanks to The Walt Disney Company owning several channels, from ABC to Toon Disney, there are lots of great original and acquired Disney property animated shows that have aired on the Disney Channel.
