4Kids TV (often stylized as "4K!DS TV" and originally known as FoxBox from 2002 to 2005) is the name of a former television programming block that aired Saturday mornings on the Fox Broadcasting Company and Internet-based video on demand children's network. The block was part of the Fox network schedule, although it was syndicated to other broadcast television stations in certain markets. 4Kids TV was created out of a four-year agreement reached in January 2002 between 4Kids Entertainment and Fox to lease the network's Saturday morning programming lineup.[1
