Real life, as you may know about Disney's history, Walt Disney couldn't make his own animated television series due to his low budget during that time. But it wasn't until in 1984 where Disney founded its TV animation studio that'd produced some of the beloved animated shows as we know it today.

In this AU version, why won't we imagine what would've be like if Disney would've started produced its animated series during the 1950s? And even before it would've found its TV animation division? Let's see what if would change:


  • Disney would've started producing animated shows in 1954.
    • Disney animated TV shows would've produced first by Walt Disney Animation Studios (1954-1985) and then currently by Disney Television Animation (1984-present).
      • Most of 1954-1985 Disney animated program library would've be transferred to Disney Television Animation.
  • In the 1960s, Disney would make the second prime-time television series (after The Flintstones), Scrooge McDuck and Nephews (a sitcom starring Scrooge McDuck, Donald Duck and Huey, Dewey and Louie) which would airing between 1960 and 1971.
  • Disney would been associated with 20th Century Fox for producing their adult animated sitcoms even before Disney adquiring it in late 2017.
    • Ren and Stimpy would've piched by Disney and Fox for Fox shorty after its cancelation on Nickelodeon (with more main characters added) and still running (even with Billy West voicing the titluar characters before John Kricfalusi returning on 2003 and Eric Bauza currently voicing Stimpy, with West returning as Ren after Kricfalusi's sexual abuse allegations in 2018).
      • Maggie (from The Simpsons) can appear in Ren and Stimpy instead as a hedgehog and Stimpy's adoptive daughter.
      • The episodes from the critically panned 2003 reboot would've been part of the Disney-Fox revival and being well-recieved by critics and audiences, with the only exception of Ren Seeks Help, which would been the most controverstial Ren and Stimpy episode.
        • Stimpy's Pregeant would've not existing at all.
      • The Family Guy/The Simpsons crossover special The Simpsons Guy would've instead a crossover with Ren and Stimpy titled Ren and Simpsons.
  • TBD
