was launched on February 13, 2009 at 12:00 a.m. Eastern Time, with the Phineas and Ferb
Phineas and Ferb
episode "Dude, We're Getting the Band Back Together" as its first program. The channel debuted its first original series, Aaron Stone, at 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time that day; the first part of the two-part premiere episode aired simultaneously on Disney XD
Disney XD
and Disney Channel. New animated series included in the channel's initial lineup were Kid vs. Kat and Jimmy Two-Shoes.[2] The network took over the channel space of Toon Disney, an animation-focused channel that debuted on April 18, 1998, which eventually launched a live-action/animation block called Jetix
Jetix
in 2004; Jetix
Jetix
channels outside of the United States
United States
were relaunched under the Disney XD
Disney XD
brand starting with the France-based service on April 1, 2009.[3] Many of the channel's programs – particularly animated series – previously aired on Toon Disney, mainly as part of the Jetix
Jetix
programming block, which ran on Toon Disney
Toon Disney
until that channel's shutdown. Disney XD
Disney XD
carries the same name as an unrelated mini-site and media player on Disney.com, which stood for Disney Xtreme Digital,[4] though it has been stated that the "XD" in the channel's name does not have an actual meaning. The channel's first original television movie, Skyrunners, premiered on November 27, 2009.[5] On April 1, 2012, Disney XD
Disney XD
launched a block called "Marvel Universe", as a result of Disney's 2009 acquisition of Marvel Entertainment.[6] On November 17, 2016, Disney announced a deal with The Pokémon Company to move the Pokémon anime series to Disney XD
Disney XD
from its longtime US TV home of Cartoon Network
Cartoon Network
starting with Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon (Season 20).[7] Programming[edit] See also: List of programs broadcast by Disney XD and List of Disney Channel series §  Disney XD

original series Disney XD's schedule consists largely of animated and live-action programs aimed at pre-teens and young teenagers. Disney XD
Disney XD
content is a mixture original series as well as programs inherited from sister network, The Disney Channel. In addition to full-length live-action and animated original series, the channel also debuts short series similar to those seen on Disney Channel
Disney Channel
during commercial breaks (such as Two More Eggs), which serve as filler for programs scheduled to end during the half-hour and last usually around one to three. The channel also airs a youth-oriented "plays of the week" countdown segment called SportsCenter
SportsCenter
High-5, which is produced by ESPN's SportsCenter and airs periodically between shows. New episodes of original series are usually aired at 7:00AM (ET). In addition, Disney XD
Disney XD
airs original made-for-TV movies from Disney Channel and theatrically released feature films, but unlike Disney Channel, Disney XD
Disney XD
typically does not air these movies in prime time; instead, films generally air during the late afternoon hours at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time with double features airing a few times a week. Unlike Disney Channel
Disney Channel
(and similarly, fellow sister network Disney Junior) – whose advertising comes in the form of program promotions, underwriter sponsorships, and interstitials for Disney films, home video and game releases produced by the channel[8] – Disney XD operates as an advertiser-supported service running traditional television commercials in addition to promotions for the channel's shows. In 2017, the network revived Ducktales.[9] The reboot starred David Tennant as the new voice of Scrooge McDuck
Scrooge McDuck
along with Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz and Bobby Moynihan
Bobby Moynihan
as Huey, Dewey and Louie.[10] The cast also included Launchpad McQuack, Mrs. Beakley and Webbigail Vanderquack. [11] Programming blocks[edit] Current[edit]
