Cartoon Network (abbreviated CN, corporately known as The Cartoon Network, Inc.) is a cable television network created by Turner Broadcasting which primarily shows animated programming. The original American channel began broadcasting on October 1, 1992 with the Bugs Bunny short Rhapsody Rabbit being its first-ever aired program.[1] Cartoon Network originally served as a 24-hour outlet for classic animation properties from the Turner Broadcasting libraries and is mainly youth-oriented, but shares channel space with a late-night adult-oriented channel programming block called Adult Swim. Since 2003 however, Cartoon Network began airing a small amount of liveaction programming, mostly movies. In October 2008, Cartoon Network began running a West Coast feed, with programming airing three hours after it airs on the main feed.

History
Late 1980s-1999
By the end of the 1980s, Ted Turner’s cableTV conglomerate had acquired the MGM film library (which included the older catalog of pre-August 1948[2] color Warner Bros. cartoons), and its cable channel Turner Network Television had gained an audience with its film library. In 1990, it purchased animation studio Hanna-Barbera Productions and acquired its large library as well as most of the Ruby-Spears library. By October 1, 1992, Cartoon Network was created as an outlet for Turner’s considerable library of animation, and the initial programming on the channel consisted exclusively of reruns of classic Warner Bros. (like Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies), MGM (like Tom and Jerry and Droopy Dog), and Hanna-Barbera cartoons (like The Jetsons and The Flintstones), with many Hanna-Barbera TV cartoons like Wally Gator used as time fillers. Most of the short cartoons were aired in half-hour or hour-long packages, usually separated by character or studio—Down With Droopy D aired old Droopy Dog shorts, The Tom and Jerry Show

ownership of all the WB cartoons, so now post-July 1948[3] releases were being shown on the network, leading up to a 2000 announcement that Cartoon Network would be the exclusive TV home of the classic Warner Bros. animated library. Newer animated productions by WB also started appearing on the network—mostly reruns of shows that had aired on Kids’ WB, plus certain new programs such as Justice League. In 2006, CN became the exclusive US outlet for the Pokémon anime—reruns and firstrun, the latter hitherto appearing on Kids’ WB, and the former off and on since 2002.

Cartoon Network’s 10th anniversary

Screencap from a 1995 bumper. Hanna-Barbera started production on The What-A-Cartoon! Show (also known as WorldPremiere Toons and "What-A-Cartoon"), a series of creator-driven short cartoons that premiered on Cartoon Network in 1995. It was the network’s third original series (the second was Space Ghost Coast to Coast and the first was The Moxy Show). The project was spearheaded by several Cartoon Network executives, plus The Ren and Stimpy Show creator John Kricfalusi (who was an advisor to the network at the time) and Fred Seibert (who was formerly one of the driving forces behind the Nicktoons, and would go on to produce the similar animation anthology series Oh, Yeah! Cartoons). The chief purpose of The What A Cartoon Show was to help Cartoon Network expand its library of exclusive programming and it introduced a number of new cartoon ideas. Eight of them were spun off into their own series runs. These eight series, Dexter’s Laboratory, Johnny Bravo, Cow and Chicken, I Am Weasel, The Powerpuff Girls, Ed, Edd n Eddy, Courage the Cowardly Dog, and Mike, Lu & Og became the origins of the network’s original cartoons, collectively known as Cartoon Cartoons.

Scene from Cartoon Network’s "10 Years in 60 Seconds" Bumper On October 1, 2002, Cartoon Network’s 10th birthday, Cartoon Network aired a one-day special bumper acknowledging their 10th anniversary. The promo showed quick clips from shows, bumpers, and promos throughout Cartoon Network’s history.[4]

A new era
On June 14, 2004, Cartoon Network relaunched itself with a new logo and slogan, “This is Cartoon Network.”[5] The first program ever aired on the relaunched Cartoon Network was Rescue Heroes. The bumps now featured 2D cartoon characters from their shows interacting in a CGI city composed of sets from their shows. By now, nearly all of Cartoon Network’s classic cartoon programming had been relocated to its sister network Boomerang to make way for new programming, with the exception of a select few, such as Tom and Jerry, a longtime staple of the Turner networks. Within a few months, the network took off more shows from the 1990s (Dexter’s Laboratory, The Powerpuff Girls, etc.) and put them on a 30 minute block called The Cartoon Cartoon Show. Some

shows like Time Squad, Mike, Lu & Og, I Am Weasel, Looney Tunes, and Sheep in the Big City were taken off the network completely. Ed, Edd n Eddy is currently the only currently-running Cartoon Cartoon, of which its sixth season is on hiatus for a rumored production of an upcoming movie.

Cartoon Network (United States)
Cartoon Network has also begun to air some imported Canadian programs from Teletoon such as George of the Jungle, 6teen and Total Drama Island. Beginning May 25, 2008, Cartoon Network has been airing animated shorts, called Wedgies, to fill in spots between two programs. On July 14, 2008, the network took on a brand new look created by Tristan Eaton and Kidrobot. The current bumpers have white, faceless characters called Noods. [10] The Noods look similar to the do-it-yourself toy known as Munny, also created by Kidrobot. A Nood would often come in contact with a color blob or a color bar and absorb the color to become a Cartoon Network character, or change into another color, if not already colored. Other bumpers feature characters interacting with one another. Various commercial parodies were aired, also using Cartoon Network characters. From July 2008 to the start of October, Greg Cipes, Kevin’s voice actor in Ben 10: Alien Force became the network’s announcer. The programming blocks also were changed to fit in with this new look, with different Noods (or a rainbow of color for Har Har Tharsdays) being used. The standard network logo is now completely white, adopting different colors based on the occasion in the same style. In April 2008, Cartoon Network began airing a one minute sign-off bumper, depicting a child’s daily activities from sunrise to nighttime. In the end, it reads "Good Night. See you tomorrow!" before the Adult Swim program block began. It was their first sign-off bumper after 7 years of showing such a nightly block. This sign-off was later revised to match the network’s new look. A Nood paints on a parental advisory warning for Adult Swim. There is also a sign-on bumper consisting of a Nood painting the Cartoon Network background on. Then, two others bring in the Cartoon Network logo. Warnings now also appear before programs rated TVPG and higher airing outside of Adult Swim.

Cartoon Network today
In the summer of 2006, Cartoon Network’s slogan was a simplistic “Cartoon Network — Yes!,” as spoken by Fred Fredburger, a character on The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy. Before then, the network’s original slogan, "the best place for cartoons", had remained the network’s slogan for nearly five years. The network also used bumps featuring the cast of Camp Lazlo as stick puppets and characters in front of a red background. The 2006-2007 campaign featured three different styles of bumps. The first style is "Lunchbox of Doom", featuring an assortment of show clips inside a CGI gothic lunchbox, a reference to an episode of The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy. The second is "VS.", comparing two cartoon characters. Their next style was a reprise of the 2004 CGI City look, using flat, dark colors. Jim Samples, president of the Cartoon Network, resigned on February 9, 2007 due to the Boston Mooninite Scare. Samples had been network president for 5 years.[6] Through 2007, Cartoon Network retained the image campaign that began in 2006, albeit a slightly refreshed version.[7] On October 15, 2007, the channel began broadcasting in 1080i High Definition.[8] In late 2007, the network look was revamped, and bumpers and station identification were themed to The Hives song "Fall is Just Something That Grown-Ups Invented", and aired for several months. Another bumper named "Ridiculously Short Cartoons" airs shorts edited from shows as if they lasted five or 10 seconds. Cartoon Network announced at its 2008 Upfront that it is working on a new project called "Cartoonstitute", which is headed by animators Craig McCracken (as executive producer) and Rob Renzetti (as supervising producer). Both report to Rob Scorcher, who created the idea. The program will work in a way similar to What A Cartoon!, by creating at least 150 pieces of animation within 20 months.[9]

Current programming blocks
Adult Swim

Saturday CrushZone
Taking the place of the Dynamite Action Squad portion of Fried Dynamite, Saturday CrushZone is a spin-off of the block, Thumbtastic Afterschool Event. It is a Saturday morning action block that shows The Secret Saturdays and Ben 10: Alien Force, along with airing premieres of action shows like Pokemon, Bakugan, and Transformers: Animated. It is more action-oriented that the original, Thumbtastic Afterschool Event. Along with these shows, it is shown that TWF (Thumb Wrestling Federation) will be part of it.

Logo for Adult Swim. Adult Swim is Cartoon Network’s adult-oriented sister network, which premiered on September 2, 2001, in the USA. Originally a Sunday-only block that was rerun on Thursdays, Adult Swim now airs Mondays through Sundays at 10:00 PM (E/P) with an encore airing at 2 a.m. every night and then ending with an hour of older shows on every night but Sunday. The block, programmed by Williams Street, plays American animated comedy series and shorts as well as a wide variety of mature anime series (now moved exclusively to early Sunday morning) and Original video animations (OVA) geared towards audiences 17 and older. On March 28, 2005, the programming block was spun off as a separate entity from Cartoon Network for Nielsen Ratings purposes. On March 27, 2006, Adult Swim started airing a half-hour early at 10:30 PM Mondays through Thursdays (E/P), but due to the Friday block added on July 6, 2007, they dropped the extra 30 minutes on July 2, 2007, bringing it back to air at 11:00 PM–6:00 a.m. As of January 1, 2009, Adult Swim started at 10:00 PM–6:00 AM. It starts with an hour of King of the Hill.

Wedgies
Wedgies are shorts that appear occasionally after a show or a movie, usually as a time filler. Some Wedgies include Nacho Bear, Big Baby, Calling Cat 22, and The Talented Mr. Bixby, but one is a spin-off from a show that is The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack. This was a replacement of the original Cartoon Network Extra, which featured the usually 11-minute episodes of some Cartoon Network series.

You Are Here
You Are Here is a Friday night action/adventure block that premiered on October 3, 2008 which airs between 8 PM and 10 PM as other blocks do.

Not surprisingly, this lighter-toned action block was from Williams Street, the producers of late-night programming block Adult Swim and Toonami, a block of programming which Miguzi replaced in the weekday-afternoon timeslot. Miguzi changed its shows often. As of June 2007, Miguzi is no longer on the Cartoon Network lineup and was replaced by Master Control, an interactive block.

Various codes, given out during the block, allowed players to multiply their vote. The block had one thirty-minute timeslot on Mondays to Thursdays, while a two-hour block airs on Fridays. The block is similar in principle to Teletoon’s "SpinCycle!" block. The final episode of Master Control aired Friday, November 9, 2007.

These cartoons were originally produced by Hanna-Barbera and Cartoon Network Studios, but over the years, studios like a.k.a. Cartoon, Kino Films, Stretch Films, Blanky Blook and Curious Pictures produced these series for Cartoon Network. Any and all Cartoon Cartoons have been featured as a part of Cartoon Network’s original Friday night programming block, Cartoon Cartoon Fridays.

Saturday afternoon blocks
Cartoon Network has aired Saturday afternoon mini-marathon blocks throughout the years. One of the first blocks the network aired was Super Chunk.

Movies
Cartoon Network’s The Flicks
The Flicks (formerly Cartoon Network’s Cartoon Theatre) is a motion picture television series on Cartoon Network, featuring animated theatrical feature films, animated made-for-TV feature films, and films made for Cartoon Network. It originally ran once a week on Saturday nights, the feature film of each week would be regularly advertised on the network making it an anticipated special movie event. The block used a classical western style with a theatrical quality of feel in its bumpers, involving a realistic-looking oldtime ticket machine and a freely drifting movie ticket on top of a wood desk accompanied by the voice of Don LaFontaine, the footage being used before and after commercial breaks and in commercials advertising the block itself. The amount of time Cartoon Theatre ran varied, and based solely on the amount of time the feature film ran, and would perhaps disagree with Cartoon Network’s hour-by-hour schedule. To even out the block’s time-frame, a sub-block titled Toon Extra (later Cartoon Network Extra), a block based on newspaper delivery, aired after Cartoon Theatre films showing one or more cartoons helping to add less than an extra hour of content to span out the perhaps uneven time slot, when the block was still called Cartoon Theatre. If Toon Extra didn’t completely fill the time slot a few extra commercials may be aired, plus the occasional black-out for lesser amounts of unadded seconds. Since 2004, live-action films, regardless if they are cartoon-related (though

opening Movement Inc., a fictional recreational dome facility. Thus began Cartoon Network’s still-running Get Animated promotion, a campaign encouraging children to get active, more importantly in outdoor areas. Created in part of the American government’s goal for a more active, and generally healthier generation, other kids’ channels generally aired similar promotions during this time (such as Nickelodeon’s Go Healthy Challenge). Original promos involved many different cartoon characters, and real kids, enjoying physical activities inside the Animation Station. Once Cartoon Network scrapped their CGI city look the Animation Station promos were abandoned, but the Get Animated campaign still continued. Current promos still show cartoon characters playing alongside kids, though occasional sports celebrities (such as Freddy Adu) make appearances. Other promos show real kids who make great physically-related achievements, or cartoon characters explaining ways of getting active.

Action Flicks
Action Flicks was a movie block that replaced Toonami on Saturday evenings in October 2008. The majority of the movies that have been broadcasted on Action Flicks included numerous DC super hero films (mostly Batman) and all three Naruto movies. After the Cartoon Network premiere of Doctor Strange: The Sorcerer Supreme, Action Flicks went off the air.

Boomerang
Boomerang was originally a programming block on Cartoon Network aimed towards the generation of baby boomers. It originally aired for four hours every weekend. The block’s start time jumped frequently, with the Saturday block moving to Saturday afternoons, then back to the early morning, and the Sunday block moving to Sunday evenings. Eventually, Boomerang was shortened by an hour, making the total airing time 2 hours each weekend instead of the original four hours. Boomerang (both the programming block and the original spinoff channel that launched on April 1, 2000) followed a unique programming format — every week, cartoons produced during a certain year (and cartoons produced during years prior to that year) would be showcased. For example, if Boomerang was showcasing the year 1969, the viewer would more than likely see an episode of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! or Dastardly and Muttley in Their Flying Machines.
