    Nowadays some of the more classic DCOMs air in the wee hours of weekend mornings before the bland Playhouse Disney (about to become Disney Junior!) preschool pablum block.


    And perhaps someone could let the fans know the exact order of release for every DCOM to date. Wasn't the last DCOM "16 Wishes"? Or was there another after that?


    In my book, I don't care for any of the DCOMs. They're not my type.

    16 Wishes wasn't a DCOM (it was aired on Disney, but wasn't a DCOM). The last DCOM to premiere was Avalon High.

    The Wikipedia page for DCOMs (unlike some entertainment-related Wikipedia pages) is pretty reliable for order and airdates:

    Classic DCOMs have been airing at 2:30/3:00 for awhile. I've got my four favorites recorded on a VHS because Disney does that, and I love them for not getting rid of that when they got rid of the other good overnight stuff.

    Disney Channel got rid of the WRONG good overnight stuff! They should have gotten rid of those DCOMs on the weekends, NOT the popular animated shows like the extremely legndary "Lilo & Stitch: The Series"! Disney Channel ruined overnight for everyone! Now we've got those DCOMs still on the weekends, 'Phineas and Ferb' weeknights, and the about-to-become Disney Junior preschool pablum every early morning at 4:00 AM! And Disney Channel calls that quality overnight programming? Not in this lifetime, bud!!

    No love for Rip Girls? That was one of my favourites as well as a lot of the other movies people have mentioned. I stopped watching DCOMs after 2004. 1996-2004 was when they made the best movies in my opinion. Maybe that is because I was between the ages of 7 and 15 then, but the movies they make lately seem to be less intelligent compared to the old classics. I think they don't want to ruin the "fragile psyche" of today's kids. Most of these old films are probably now deemed inappropriate for kids. It's a shame they don't show the old ones because a lot of those I could still watch today without feeling my IQ plummet.

    Disney Channel no longer airs their original movies in the wee hours of weekend mornings. Now it's back-to-back "Suite Life On Deck" followed by a "Super Stack' of "Phineas and Ferb"- every morning.

    I stand corrected on my previous mention. Disney Channel still has movies airing in the wee hours of weekend mornings starting around 2:30 AM. My mistake. Thank you.

    HEY!! everyone, yes! It really brings quite a good old memories! I mean everyone of us have grown up watching disney stuff! Now when are children are growing up, there is more new stuff for them! And sometime we too enjoy watching it with them, but i rather prefer that my child read books and watch less of TV as his eye-sight will be weak, when he grows up! So, I rather tell him to focus on his huge collection of story -books! His favorite character is spider man! He is such a big fan of it, that even got spider man costume too! I got spider man story book for him from hushbabies! And now he is after me, he wants all the volumes !! There are a lot of comic toons to choose from, that he himself chooses it, and tells me to buy for them!! Now. i can surely say that books are children's best friends!!

    I disagree. While seeing the old movies again once in a while would be great, I would - as an adult - also like to see some good NEW movies and shows...emphasis on "good".
