A two hour block of Disney cartoons that was widely syndicated and usually shown after school from 3-5. It was started in the early 90s. The original lineup was Gummi Bears, DuckTales, Chip and Dale's Rescue Rangers, and TaleSpin. Every year they would bump the first show over to The Disney Channel, slide everything a half hour earlier, and add some new programming. The first show added was Darkwing Duck. Other later additions included Goof Troop, Bonkers, Gargoyles, and The Mighty Ducks (not the movie, but the cartoon based on a team of alien ducks who play hockey and solve crime. I'm not making this up).

The Disney Afternoon was pretty high quality programming and many of the shows it produced remain beloved today. It is remembered very fondly by people like me who would run home to see it.
