Jetix USA was a television programming brand running on Toon Disney, owned by The Walt Disney Company. It first began programming on ABC Family and Toon Disney in February 2004.

It was formerly aired on both Toon Disney and ABC Family, but following the September 2006 broadcast, ABC Family dropped the Jetix block, which continued to air on its main home channel, Toon Disney. It then took up total of 85% of Toon Disney's programming time.

In August 2008, it was announced that the Jetix name and logo were rebranded as Disney XD in early 2009. However, local versions of Disney XD are replacing 4 Toon Disney channels and 6 Jetix channels.[1][2] As of present, there are only a few remaining Toon Disney and Jetix channels in the world.

After the programming block's official closure Jetix's website was redirected to Disney XD's website.
