'''Cartoon Network''' or '''The Cartoon Network''' is, as you may have guessed, a television network that is formerly broadcasted by [[Ted Turner]], primarily broadcasting cartoons. The network started sometime in 1492, and was aimed at showing nothing but [[junk|cartoons]] nonstop, [[asplode|until your eyes burst]]. Most shows that that appear on this network have been sent by the Comedy Gods to eventually be canceled after 2-3 seasons. Cartoon Network better known as '''''Cartoon Nothing'''''. These cartoons include, but are not limited to, the following:

CN's newer, "hipper" logo.

Cartoon Network was a television network formerly dedicated to showing nothing but cartoons nonstop, 24/7, 365 days per year, until your eyes burst. Many of their shows were sent by the Comedy Gods only to be canceled after 2-3 seasons.

CN was in its heyday from approximately 1997 to 2004. However, since 2004, they have slipping drastically: changing the logo, replacing their original Cartoon Cartoons with cheaply-made dreck, and even adding live-action shows. Live-action. On a Cartoon Network. Fuck you, CN.

edit History

edit 1992–97: Humble beginnings

These years of CN were pretty weak, mostly because they showed nothing but cheap Scooby-Doo reruns over and over again.

edit 1997–2004: Golden age

This is where things started to kick into gear. Cartoon Network aired their two most popular blocks: Toonami, and Adult Swim. Toonami is the greatest block that has ever aired, and the greatest block that ever will air. It was created in 1997 by Moltar, a producer for Space Ghost.

From 2001 to 2004, Adult Swim was one of the funniest programming blocks around, mainly due to such genius-ness as The Brak Show, Space Ghost Coast to Coast, Futurama, Mission Hill, Baby Blues, Stressed Eric, the first three seasons of Family Guy, Moral Orel, and Cowboy Bebop.

edit 2004–07: Decline

Unfortunately, in 2004, the network began declining. They lost very good shows like Dexter's Lab and Courage the Cowardly Dog and replaced them with total and utter shit like Squirrel Boy, My Gym Parnter is a Monkey, Camp Lazlo, Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi, and Blue Imaginary Friends. The beloved Cartoon Cartoon Fridays was also replaced by plain ol' Fridays with live-action hosts.

Toonami and Adult Swim also began careening down the hill covered in oil. Excellent shows like Gundam Wing, Sailor Moon and Samurai Jack were cancelled, never to be seen again. Adult Swim added the unfunny Robot Chicken and began overplaying reruns of Family Guy.

edit 2007–12: Dark Ages

In 2007, president Jim Samples forced to step down after the citizens of Boston mistook Aqua Teen Hunger Force lite-brites for bombs. In Samples's place came Stuart Snyder. Under Snyder, the remaining good shows on CN were taken off the air. In 2008, Toonami was cancelled because Cartoon Network executives decided they needed to make room for the "excellent" live-action programming they created. A crappy live-action block known as CN Real aired in its place.

As a result of these changes, everyone turned its back on Cartoon Network. While this was happening, Snyder's minion, Rob Scorcher, greenlit a load of bad shows like The Problem Solverz and Destroy Build Destroy. Once CN's ratings hit rock-bottom, Snyder cancelled the bad shows and decided to bring in some half decent ones like Adventure Time and Regular Show. However, it is unlikely that Cartoon Network will ever reach the heights it attained in the 1990s and early 2000s.

edit 2012–present: Possible comeback

Toonami was briefly revived on April 1, 2012 on Adult Swim, in honor of April Fool's Day. The joke was on Adult Swim as fans demanded that the network #BringBackToonami permanently. On May 16, Adult Swim announced that #ToonamisBackBitches and will return May 26, 2012 @ Midnight ET.

edit List of shows

edit Golden Age

These shows also at one time appeared on Cartoon Network, but were ousted by faster, stronger shows via the magic of natural selection. Because as of 2004, Cartoon Network is known for showing cartoons no one else wants:

  • Lupin III
  • Space Ghost Coast to Coast
  • Inuyasha
  • Sailor Moon
  • Gundam Wing
  • Dragon Ball Z

edit Shit Age

edit Programming blocks

  • Adult Swim (2001–present) – A block that airs "educational" cartoons for adults, such as Robot Chicken, Family Guy, and The Brak Show.
  • The Cartoon Cartoon Show (2000–2003; 2005–2008) – A block that aired classic Cartoon Cartoons to compensate for shit like Squirrel Boy and My Gym Partner's a Monkey.
