Super RTL is a Cologne-based German television network operated by RTL Disney Fernsehen GmbH & Co. KG. It was the second German television channel aimed mostly at children (the first was Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network). It was launched in 1995 as a joint venture between RTL Group predecessor company CLT-UFA and Disney.

During the daytime and early evening until 8:15 pm, there are only shows for children on Super RTL, including many American and particularly Disney series. Super RTL used to air a large number of Nickelodeon shows as well during the time that rights owner Viacom didn't operate their own children's channel in Germany (1998–2005), but this supply has dried up with the re-introduction of "Nick" to Germany in 2005.

In prime time, Super RTL mostly repurposes older RTL series or airs family-branded, inexpensive entertainment shows.
