    I liked 4kids more, to be honest I never really saw much of FoxKids so I will leave it to 4kids since I was fond of most of their shows anyway.

    Even though this was literally just the same block with two different names, I'll say FoxBox. It was when 4Kids was at their prime and some of their better shows debuted on the FoxBox name.

    4Kids TV because the block was owned by Time Warner, when they own 4Kids Entertainment from 2004 to Late 2010

    Time Warner never owned 4Kids.

    Several of 4Kids' best shows, such as Kirby: Right Back at Ya! and Shaman King, were on while the block was called Fox Box, so I'll go with that.

    Why not throw in "The CW 4 Kids" and "Toonzai", since they were all "4Kids" blocks as well?

    ^Unfortunately, I don't think that would work.

    None of them. They both equally suck. I prefer Fox Kids over those crap.

    I say FoxBox, because I loved watching the hit shows that aired mostly on that than on 4Kids. Even when I watched the block under the latter name, I felt it didn't have the same spark or excitement I had for FxBx.
    Although, (even though I don't remember watching it much as I was much younger during its prime) I'd prefer Fox Kids over both; in fact it be better if the FxK name stayed throughout all three's tenures.

    Yeah, it's strange that they couldn't just keep the "Fox Kids" name all the way through till the end of 2008.

    Even if the Saban stuff (Power Rangers, Digimon, etc) got sold to Disney in 2002, it still would've been nice to keep calling it "Fox Kids" going forward.

    That, and I just think "Toonzai" and "Vortexx" were much better names than "Fox Box" and "4 Kids TV".

    Maybe they changed it to either show the block changed hands or to avoid confusion with Fox Kids Europe and its channels (which wouldn't become Jetix until 2004)? Or even both.

    To me "Toonzai" and "Vortexx" were dumb names. "Fox Box" and "4KidsTV" were much better.

    Eh, I kind of liked Toonzai and Vortexx's names, especially Vortexx that one was very iconic to me.

    Well I don't. I liked Fox Box and 4KidsTV better.
