In 1989, MGM/UA purchased Childrens Christian Channel, and rebranded it a mere three days after the takeover, and removed all christian programming and replaced it with MGM-Owned and Acquired Programming, which were all Animated.

MGM/UA modified the network to focus on more than cartoons, and the network became MGM/UA Kids.

MGM Kids Zone
1995 - 1996
In 1995, MGM once again rebranded their Kids channel to fit more older youths while still attending to younger ones as well.
The Disney Experience
In 1996, MGM sold their network to Disney who changed it into a free version of their network, The Disney Channel. This was short lived though, as it only ran for 5 months.
1996 - 2003
In 1996, Disney let ABC (A subsidiary of which they purchased in 1995) run the station as Kids Pop. It is interesting how this channel stayed alive. In 1997, it was going to become Toon Disney, but instead, Toon Disney replaced some other network. In 1999, It was going to become Disney's 1 TV, but this also got cancelled.
2003 - 2006
On January 27, 2003, Disney and ABC rebranded Kids POP as ABC Kids, which basically acted as a second Disney Channel, since the block on ABC aired pretty much the same things Disney Channel aired, not to mention the fact Toon Disney existed.
2006 - 2016
In 2006, Disney handed over ABC Kids to Viacom, who rebranded it as their own. Starting in 2007, Some Nickelodeon shows began airing on the channel.
In 2016, Viacom turned Paramount Kids into CBS Kids as a joint venture between CBS and DHX Media.
