History

When UPN launched in 1995, it aired cartoons on weekends; the lineup was known as UPN Kids.

In 1997, UPN went a different way with its children's program block by airing new episodes as well as reruns of the syndicated Sweet Valley High and a new series, Breaker High on weekdays and Sundays aiming the programs at teenagers.

In January 1998, UPN began talks with The Walt Disney Company to run a daily two-hour Disney kids block[1] but the talks with Disney were called off a week later do to a dispute over branding the block and deciding how much E/I programming Disney would provide, UPN then began talks with Nickelodeon.[2] At which time UPN made a deal with Saban Entertainment to program the block on Sunday mornings[2] and air shows like The Incredible Hulk, X-Men, Spider-Man and Big Bad Beetleborgs.[3][4]

In March 1998, UPN resumed talks with Disney[5] and in April 1998, UPN made a deal with Disney to air Disney programming on weekday and Sunday mornings.[6] The new lineup, a sister block to Disney's One Saturday Morning on ABC, would be called Disney's One Too.[7]
