The X-Men Animated Series debuted in the 1992-1993 season on the Fox Network. It was part of Fox's Saturday morning lineup, which featured both cartoons, such as X-Men, Bobby's World and Life With Louie and live-action programming, such as Power Rangers, that were directed at young children. This youth-geared Saturday morning and weekday afternoon block of programming was known as "Fox Kids". This block has currently been replaced by 4Kids TV (Formerly "Fox Box") on Saturday mornings, but nothing in afternoons.

Currently, this series can be seen on Toon Disney at 11:00pm EST on all nights of the week.

X-Men was one of the longest-lasting series on Fox Kids, with its final new episode airing in late 1997, after five complete seasons. The show was not removed from the lineup until 1998, after a full six seasons. The show also is one of the highest-rated and most-viewed Saturday morning programs in American history, to this day. During its peak years (1995 and 1996), the show was often shown every weekday afternoon, in addition to Saturday mornings.

After the box office success of the X-Men movie in the summer of 2000, Fox began airing reruns of the successful cartoon on weekday afternoons. This ended in early 2001. Soon after, the ABC Family licensed the cable syndication rights from FOX, and began airing reruns. The reruns are still being shown on ABC Family around the time of 7 AM EST and have been doing so for quite some time.

The show featured a team line-up similar to that of the early 1990s X-Men comic books. It included Professor X and the team Cyclops, Beast, Jean Grey, Wolverine, Rogue, Gambit, Storm, and Jubilee. Colossus, Nightcrawler, Forge, Banshee, Iceman, Archangel, Psylocke, and Bishop, who were also X-Men members in the early '90s comics, all guest starred in at least one episode of the cartoon, though they did not currently live at the X-Mansion. There is no season DVD available on this cartoon series. However, selected episodes have been released as:

* Wolverine's Story
