Disney Channel's first broadcasting day occurred on April 18, 1983. At the inception, the Disney Channel only aired 18 hours a day from 7:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m.; 24-hour programming would begin in December 1986. The channel's programming on the first day on the air was an episode of the 1950s-era Mickey Mouse Club. The first produced Disney Channel original series shown on the network included Good Morning, Mickey!, Donald Duck Presents, Contraption, Dumbo's Circus, You and Me Kid, EPCOT Magazine and Welcome to Pooh Corner. The original late night schedule featured reruns of the classic The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet.

In 1997, Disney Channel took on a revamped look and dropped the "The" in the network's name, and split the network into three programming blocks—Playhouse Disney, comprising shows aimed at preschoolers; Vault Disney, featuring classic Disney material such as Zorro, The Mickey Mouse Club, the Disney anthology television series, older television specials and features such as The Love Bug; and the most distinct one, running from afternoon to late evening, called Zoog Disney, aimed at preteens and young teenagers up to the age of 15. Of the three blocks introduced in 1997, only Playhouse Disney continues to this day. As part of the network's 2002 re-brand campaign, the "Zoog" brand name was dropped, and Vault Disney was dropped (primarily to contribute to the network's new "hip" image).

While Disney Channel moved from premium cable to basic cable on January 1997, most of the design elements changed three years later. In 2002, the two logos along with Zoog Disney were removed and Disney Channel introduced its current logo. The vintage material aired under the Vault Disney banner was also discontinued as of September 9, 2002.

From August 15, 1992-mid 2004, Nickelodeon presented a Saturday night institution for America's youth. SNICK invited us to sit on the comfy big orange couch (the official mascot of SNICK) from 8:00-10:00. It was must see TV for kids who were getting away from school for the weekend. SNICK featured such classic programs as "Clarissa Explains it All", "Roundhouse", "The Secret World of Alex Mack", "Kenan and Kel", "Ren and Stimpy", "The Adventures of Pete and Pete", the original "All That", "Space Cases", and "Are You Afraid of the Dark", just to name a few. The "golden age" of SNICK was from 1992-1999 (when the big orange couch, the heart and soul of the block was retired). Although the "SNICK" name is no longer active (instead, we have the rather sterile, bland "TEENick"), this page intends on keeping its spirit and legacy alive.
