Formerly a Disney Channel block, Zoog Disney is a subchannel airing on stations that are affiliates of free-to-air networks. Zoog Disney is aimed mainly at the teenage market. Aired as a Disney Channel from 1998-2002, Zoog Disney returned to the airways in 2015 after fans started demanding to bring back Zoog Disney.

History

Zoog Disney was introduced in August 1998, and was the most distinct of the three blocks, compromising Disney Channel Original Series aimed at preteens and teens. The afternoon-to-late evening lineup was hosted by anthropomorphic robot/alien hybrid characters called the "Zoogs" (who were originally two-dimensional figures, but were redesigned as cel shaded anime-esque figures and given mature voices in 2001) and was designed to encourage viewer interactivity between television and the Internet. The Zoog Disney brand would later expand, with most of the channel's weekend schedule (outside of Vault Disney and Playhouse Disney) becoming part of the "Zoog Weekendz" umbrella block from September 2001 to August 2002. In early September of that year, Disney Channel began a gradual rebranding, beginning with the discontinuance of the "Zoog" brand from on-air use.

Return of Zoog Disney

After relaunching Vault Disney in 2014, the question was asked if Zoog Disney should be a part of Vault Disney or be a separate channel. It was decided that Zoog Disney will be a separate subchannel, sharing some of the same programming from Vault Disney. So on Jan. 1, 2015, Zoog Disney returned as a subchannel.
