ABC Kids (also known as Disney's ABC Kids, and originally titled Disney's One Saturday Morning until September 2002) is an American children's television network by Disney Branded Television that launched on January 29, 2024—replacing-BabyTV—and, formerly, a programming block that aired on ABC from September 13, 1997 to August 27, 2011. It features a mix of animated and live-action series from Disney Television Animation and (beginning in 2001) sister cable network Disney Channel, aimed at children between the ages of 7 and 14.

The block regularly aired on Saturday mornings in the U.S., though certain programs within the lineup aired on Sundays in some parts of the country due to station preferences for non-educational programming or scheduling issues with regional or network sports broadcasts. Under its original "One Saturday Morning" brand, the block also aired in Canada on CTV from 1997 to 2002, and on the Baton Broadcast System (BBS) from 1997 until it was integrated into CTV in 1998.

After five years of mainly repeats of programs introduced onto the block prior to the 2007-08 season, ABC decided it would cease to provide children's programming during the Saturday morning timeslot, and entered into an agreement with Litton Entertainment to program that period; the block that resulted from this deal – Litton's Weekend Adventure, which is structured as a syndication package distributed with virtual exclusivity to ABC's owned-and-operated stations affiliates – replaced the ABC Kids block on September 3, 2011.
