Toon Disney was an American cable television channel which began broadcasting on April 18, 1998 (the date was chosen to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the launch of its parent channel, Disney Channel). It was owned by The Walt Disney Company, who also owns the Miramax Films film studio. Its programming was aimed at 2-11 year olds.

Toon Disney had shown the Pokémon motion pictures distributed in the United States by sister company Miramax Films: Celebi: Voice of the Forest, Pokémon Heroes, Jirachi: Wish Maker, and Destiny Deoxys. On February 13th, 2009, Toon Disney was succeeded by Disney XD, a channel geared towards boys ages 6-14.

It was also the name of a British television channel that aired alongside the British versions of Disney Channel and Disney Junior (formerly called "Playhouse Disney" until 7 May, 2011). It was launched the same day as Disney Junior on September 29, 2000 and was replaced on March 16, 2006 by Disney Cinemagic. It aired the same shows as Disney Channel, excluding live-action shows such as Lizzie McGuire and Smart Guy.
