Cartoon Network Isn't What It Used To Be.

lukestheman4
It's really sad to see what has become of Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon. Back in the late 90s and early 2000s, almost all of the shows had some kind of enjoyment factor, whether it be Looney Tunes' wit, Courage and Billy and Mandy's dark humor, the drama of Teen Titans and Samurai Jack, or the just plain enjoyability of Johnny Bravo, Ed Edd & Eddy, Powerpuff Girls, and Dexter's Lab. Same goes for Nick like Avatar, Hey Arnold, and Invader Zim. When I look at both channels now I actually feel nauseaus to see what has become of my childhood. I will admit that out of all of CN's new shows, Total Drama and Chowder aren't that bad, but they're still full of flaws. The reason why Nick didn't go down hill as badly as CN is because Nick still plays some of the old shows, while Cartoon Network has practically abandoned most of what made it popular in the first place, and stupid remakes of Looney Tunes, Scooby Doo, Tom and Jerry, and especially the Teen Titans remake, will never make up for that horrible decision. Most of the shows on CN now star mentally retarded characters in a horrible plot with absolutely pathetic fart jokes, toilet humor, and sexual innuendos that kids should not be exposed to, and don't even get me started on the live action shows that made CARTOON Network's name invalid. The best decisions CN has made in recent years is bringing back Toonami and creating Cartoon Planet, so at least on Fridays and Saturdays Cartoon Network has some form of entertainment.The bottom line is that Cartoon Network has made WAY too many mistakes, and unlike Nickelodeon they have done nothing to make up for those mistakes, excluding Cartoon Planet and Toonami. I have used every ounce of patience in my body to try and figure out why people like, and even love, the new shows, and normally I'm very polite about other people's opinions, but I have to ask, Why? Why are some of you watching the new stuff? At least I'm grateful for what Cartoon Network provided me in its prime, so thanks CN for the awesome childhood, and also screw you for selling your souls to Satan.

The thing is that you have grown and now you are older and will thus not like the youngish things - yoyodude

Cartoon network actually used to best place for cartoons. Now it is full of stupid live action shows that make no sense, awful canadian shows and bad remakes of awesome classics like teen titans and looney tunes. I will admit, adventure time and regular show are pretty good and the amazing world of gumball really lives up to its title. But other than that everything is BULLCRAP except mad which is at least half decent. Now, if you will excuse me, I have to get back to crying because that cancelled ed, edd n eddy and fosters home. *sob**sob* - visitor

Maybe so, but it's not the youngish things that make the new CN bad, the old shows had youngish things and I still watch them today. It's the lack of logic and hard work that makes the new shows bad. - lukestheman4

This is probably a late comment but I agree. The cartoons from the 90s and the early to mid 2000s were excellent. The new ones sucked and I gave up on Cartoon Network in about 2009 because of crappy shows. Why do you think I watch them on the internet sometimes? - dbret12

I totally agree with lukestheman4, I think modern cartoons in general are awful compared to the classics. Both Cartoon Network and Boomerang are quite bad now. All the new versions of old cartoons like the new Tom and Jerry Tales and new Looney Tunes show are dreadful compared to the originals. And Cartoon Network used to play the Funimation dub of DragonBall Z my favourite show ever but it doesn't anymore. - EvilAngel

I still remember the biggest mysteries of my childhood was that chick in Powerpuff Girls' face, Cow & Chickens parents tops, Eddys brother and the one that bugged me the most, what was under Double D's hat. Good times - Danielsun182

AH yes... The good old days. The great shows they used to have, like powerpuff Girls and the original Teen Titans. Now they have crap like Ben 10. That show seriously sucks. - llamabaconllama37

There used to be nice cartoon before, and now days... I don't know what kind of cartoons they are showing, its so not good, poor animation, no good stories, no good cartoon character and lots more...
I am just started hating Cartoon Networks :( - visitor

Thank you very much for saying this. T.V. Shows back in the day used to be clever, humorous, and slightly stupid. However, T.V. Shows on Cartoon Network today are just plain stupid. I fear for the next generation of children watching these horrific T.V. shows. - EmperorAguila

Cartoon Networks isn't even trying anymore the same goes for Nickelodeon & Disney, Cartoons have completely lost their way I can't really recall anything good over the last 5 years all these new cartoon shows are garbage I know I'm going to be hated for this but I really don't care those shows include Adventure Time, Chowder, The Amazing World of Gumball, Teen Titans Go, Regular Show and too many for me to name right now. - egnomac

Cartoon network sucks because they cancelled ed edd n eddy. but it very sucks because they has crappy show like ADVENTURE TIME. - visitor

It just sucks that's all I have to say just take these new ones off and put the old ones back on - kylebuschfan18

Cartoon network will never respond to us. BECAUSE WHAT!? They not aware how horrible new cartoon was created (except regular show and gumball). just like the problem solverz. - visitor

I really miss the old classics like Looney Tunes, Dexter and Tom & Jerry. - Kiteretsunu

I loved 90's cartoons but there were sexual inneuendos in them to. Did you ever watch Animaniacs or Pinky and the Brain or Ren and Stimpy or Rocko's Modern Life - visitor

ADVENTURE TIME SUCKS! - visitor

Yo Visitor... You gotta watch out on what you say. It's true that old cartoons are better, but Adventure Time and the other new shows is not sucks. And you should forget about it and move on. This isn't the 90's anymore you know. - Finn-Mordecai-Gumball

Hey, hey... Watch out on what you say about Adventure time, visitor. It may be wrong in a dozen of ways, but it's so fun! Other than that show, I almost completely agree with this post. - keyson

How About You Need To STOP BEING ADVENTURE TIME FANS? - visitor

Watch, visitor. - SuperBacca

I say both are good but Johnny test and the problem solverz - SOUTHPARKFANHH

Excuse me dear writer but some of the new shows aren't THAT bad for crying out loud! (come on! Just give Regular show, TAWOG or Adventure time a chance ok? ) maybe some of them are THRASH (like uncle grandpa or live- actions) but most of the new ones are pretty good!

I'm not saying that I don't have a childhood. I remember fosters or KND or courage too! But seriously you need to move on buddy!

If you ask me I'm saying CN is trying to pull its self up again (like Steven universe) and who knows? Maybe they will shwo the old cartoons again!

Oh and for the record, most of the people don't like nostalgic FREAKS (the people who always live in past and don't accept new things)
OK? - visitor

I agree with LukestheMan4. Cartoon Network has been making weird shows lately like Uncle Grandpa, Teen Titans Go!, Clarence, Steven Universe and some others. They don't even air Ed, Edd & Eddy anymore. I don't even know if their trying. I remember back in 2004 Cartoon Network had shut down. Then in like 2007, it came back. Although I do like some of its new shows like Regular Show, Pokemon and The Amazing World of Gumball. So great blog post, LukestheMan4. - EpicJake

Here's a list of things they need to do soon:
1) Reruns of the good shows from 1994-2008 (Dexter's, TDI, Foster's, KND, etc. )
2) Cancel Uncle Grandpa, Adventure Time, and Gumball.
3) Cancel TTG, and play reruns of the old one.
4) Make good shows.
5) No more live action. - Turkeyasylum
