The Proud Family Movie was produced in Widescreen. Phineas and Ferb, Fish Hooks & and The Replacements (more or likely, just Season 2) were/are also produced in Widescreen as well.
When did Disney start producing cartoon series in widescreen? I'm curious whether there are older series which were actually produced for widescreen, but only shown cropped in the past.
Disney series in 2000s produced for widescreen:
American Dragon: Jake Long
Dave the Barbarian
The Emperor's New School
Lilo & Stitch: The Series
Phineas and Ferb
Replacements (Season 2 only?)
Series from Jetix division which were produced for widescreen:
Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go!
Yin Yang Yo!
Those lists are based on cartoon series I have seen on TV in Australia, I expect there are more from 2000s.

I believe every series produced by WDTA after 2000 is in Widescreen/HD, BUT I could be wrong though. I know for a fact the The Legend of Tarzan is. The only way we would truly know about the other series, is if Disney Channel or Disney XD were to air them again.
Phineas and Ferb and Fish Hooks are recent, so widescreen isn't surprising.
Jetix series were shown much later in Australia, so we got to see them in widescreen.
OK, I basically tried asking this question in the general animation thread:
But i got no real answer. How is Disney Junior airing shows like Little Mermaid and Jungle Cubs in widescreen? Are they stretching out the picture or were they re-formatted for widescreen? I'm just surprised both shows look so good compared to shows I watch on Boomerang (granted Boom is not in HD)
Here's hoping for so more classics to air on this channel in widescreen! I know it's not aimed at me but i'm really enjoying this channel.
What sucks though is you can't see said shows in widescreen unless you have HD.
