The X-Men animated series produced by marvel productions ltd is an animated American television series which that debuted on the American television network, Fox Network, on the 31st of October 1992 as part of its lineup on Saturday mornings on the network's children subsidiary, Fox kids.
The series was an adaptation of the comic series also of the same name created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby; the series was created by Larry Houston and Frank Squillace for Marvel Comics as a second attempt at creating an animated series based on the original comics.
The show follows the company's pilot entitled "Pryde of the xmen" which was broadcast by the Fox Network several times between the years 1989 and 1992. The success of the series is what aided the launch of other animated series based on comic books such as batman and of which also aired on the Fox network from the early 90s. The original premiere of X-men the animated series was set for broadcast on the Labor Day weekend in September of 1992, but production delays ended up slating the show at the end of October that same year. Even so, episodes such as "the night of the sentinels" had editorial and production errors which were later correct and re-televised by the fox network in early 1993.
The show gained repute as one of fox kids' longest televised animated series albeit second only to batman: the animated series. The final episode aired to an American audience in 1997 after completing five successful seasons with the network, and was not removed from its regular schedule until later in 1998; this was primarily due to the television series' success, receiving unprecedented ratings to become the most viewed series to be watched on Saturday mornings in US history.
At its peak, the animated series was shown to audiences during weekday, afternoons and its scheduled Saturday mornings (from 1995 to 1996). The X-men series is marvels' oldest comic based show, having totaled a televised broadcast of 76 episodes. Owing to added success of the blockbuster action movie entitled X-Men, in the summer of 2000, Fox kids network aired reruns of the animated series of weekday afternoons but mostly episodes that featured characters from the movie itself at first.
