DC Poland already improved the "new episode" screenbug. Instead of "New" it's now "Nowy odcinek".

When was the last time Ducktales aired on Disney Channel UK?

I know it's during bounce era but what year?

Maybe even earlier: Toon Disney has been there since 2000 in the UK (along with Playhouse Disney), there had not been many classic toons (even staples) on the main Disney Channel for a long time.
Disney Channel UK has been "tweenized" rather early, as compared to let's say the Italian Disney Channel, mostly because it took longer for Playhouse and Toon in Italy to pop up; still a rather decent channel, but DC IT before 2003 in particular had more variety

Also, if I remember correctly, even Toon Disney UK had a huge thing for more popular cartoons (esp. since 2002) and less for classic toons like Ducktales and Darkwing Duck, disappointingly.

A lot of Recess in particular

The only classics I remember Cinemagic airing was Timon and Pumbaa. Maybe some Hercules and they'd pull a TD US and air 1 ducktales per month.

I caught this banner timing error moment while watching Vikingskool today.

Usually the coming up next banner comes at near end of episode, but today it came in around 12th minute of the episode.

I never had Toon Disney UK when it launched, as it was a Sky only channel at the start. But a lot of the shows they seemed to advertise at the time were the more recent ones at that time, like Schnookums and Meat, Bonkers and Marsupilami (some were also being run on Disney Channel as well in either the daytime or late at night before they closed).

By the time I did get it. they were all pretty much the tween based ones and modern hits like Recess, Pepper Ann, Weekenders and Hercules.

Recess was definitely a popular show for them. One thing I recall was a Friday Afternoon block consisting of a movie and Recess back-to-back. And then Bigger Fridays later followed, copying the same format. They never changed the show to anything else, except for one occasion with Lilo & Stitch The Series.

Classics did crawl back, but were either on Playhouse Disney or Cinemagic for a short period of time.

Yeah, there were classics but mostly in minor time slots or not on air for long, and basically almost never on Disney Channel.

Then Cinemagic tried to sandwich movies with shows and non-peak school times, but eventually, 2 years before the closure, shows were only "possible" during time slots like 10pm-12am.

I remember seeing Toon Disney UK's schedules, and yeah, not particularly impressed with the potential.

DC IT had a "duck" block on weekdays at 1pm, hardly "possible" on DC UK or even TD UK

Just realized that Disney Channel Scandinavia has been airing weekly new episodes of Big City Greens season 3A (not including "Squashed!", which I assume is expected to air closer to Halloween, and should be on Disney+ once the entire season is added over here) since September 26th, starting with "Boss Life / Papaganda". One new episode every Monday.

Also, it looks like The Ghost and Molly McGee season 1B (production order) will air on Disney Channel Scandinavia starting on October 3rd, with one new episode every Monday. It looks to me like they're intentionally skipping the holiday-oriented "Festival of Lights / Saving Christmas" from season 1A, as well as the winter-themed "Ice Princess / Ready, Set, Snow!", and delaying them until Christmas 2022 and early 2023 respectively (or until they put the show's complete first season on Disney+ in Denmark).

About @Frontier's concern on the recent DCEU plans, while I understand his worries, I really hope it doesn't mean it's the end of non-DCEU content like the DTV animated films but yeah.
Oh, and I feel like I should add: contrary to Bart's accurate calling out of Comic Book Guy's nitpicking when this show was on network TV, I PAID for Disney+ to watch The Simpsons, thank you very much, so I think I'm entitled to a certain level of customer satisfaction. Maybe it's because it's cheap, because HBO Max certainly delivers, and boy, that one's pricey.

This quote used to be a hilarious meme I'd use to counter salty fanboys. But now that I've seen it in context of the episode... yikes. No wonder the Simpsons went downhill when the writers thought so little of what garbage they're feeding their audience. Meanwhile, South Park...

Also, ironically, this quote felt far more obnoxious than most of SP's lines because of the context.
episode 4 of the really loud house has the same stock scream sound effect from that "its monday... already?" garfield meme

and they play it twice in 15 seconds
Check out @Sam the Cartoonist 's thread in The Drawing Board, The Shapes!


There you'll find a link to a truly wild and funny comic strip. It's great.
