Disney Channel is the one of America’s most successful children channel. Most of its programs are original series and movies as well that are promoted mostly to children.

Disney Channel is part of Disney-ABC Cable Networks, a division of THE WALT DISNEY COMPANY. The network is stationed in Burbank, California.
The network first broadcasted program aired on April 1983. That time Disney Channel air their programs for only 18 hours a day. The program that really captured the taste of the audience was the “Mickey Mouse Club”. Good Morning, Mickey, Donald Duck Presents, Dumbo’s Circus, Epcot and Welcome to Pooh Corner were the first programs produced by the Disney Channel Series. Then, President Ronald Reagan presented a special citation to the Disney Channel way back in 1984. In December 1986, the network started to air 24 hours and some foreign animated series and movies including The Raccoons, Paddington Bear and many more.
