Disney Comic Hits! was a comic book title published by Marvel Comics, placing various comics based on a variety of modern Disney properties, including then-current Disney Afternoon shows, into one anthology title. Following the cancellation of Marvel's previous Disney titles (Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, The Disney Afternoon, Gargoyles, and The Little Mermaid), this new title ran for sixteen issues from October 1995 to January 1997.

Like The Disney Afternoon comic before it, Disney Comic Hits! would devote each issue to stories based on either a single cartoon, or three different productions. But although new, previously unpublished stories based on The Little Mermaid and Aladdin saw print in this title (specifically, issues #12 for the former, as well as issues #6 and #9 for the latter), Gargoyles and the shows featured in the earlier Disney Afternoon title (Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers, TaleSpin, Darkwing Duck, Goof Troop, and Bonkers) were never the subject of any Disney Comic Hits! issue (despite early advertisements for the title stating that Darkwing Duck would be among the properties featured in it).

Some issues featured comic adaptations of newly-released Disney animated movies. In particular, issue #13 featured a comic adaptation of Aladdin and the King of Thieves. It was a very different adaptation than the one seen in the September 1996 issue of Disney Adventures, most notably skipping over the opening of the story.

A seventeenth issue, which was to feature three new stories based on 101 Dalmatians, was planned, according to the blurb at the end of issue #16. However, due to Marvel's sudden bankruptcy in December 1996, Disney Comic Hits! was cancelled, and Marvel would never publish another Disney comic (or any licensed comic, for that matter) until 2011.
