Eight years later, it appeared on Toon Disney as part of the channel's Jetix line up.

Jack's greatest weapon against Machestro was the sophisticated computer Xyber 9. With Xyber 9's power, Jack journeyed through Machestro's underworld and to other futuristic lands, fighting intergalactic evil. In order to enfeeble the Chosen One, Machestro tried desperately to snare Xyber 9, for without the powerful computer, Jack would be defenseless. And with it, Machestro could spread his disease of evil throughout Terrana and beyond.
At the end of the original run, Jack finds the protected valley, a location left by Terrana's advanced ancestors and a protected valley with genetically altered crops that could grow in two days time, and need very little water and nutrients, which Jack shows to the people to help return Terrana back into its previous state.
In the new run, it is reveled that Machestro rules over the Machina by giving them hope that they will be able to reclaim the surface by turning it dark. This is because the Machina have an infection that causes them to be in great pain when traveling into the sunlight believing it will kill them. Ikira, a former Machina learned that even though the sunlight causes great pain, it is the cure to the infection after which they would be able to walk on the surface. Machestro knows this, but does not let the Machina know out of fear of them removing him as leader.
