Top Ten Worst Moves by Cartoon Network

These are the terrible things that Cartoon Network ever done.

The Top Ten

1 No reruns of old good shows

I was born in 2002 and no matter what if I saw these shows on the internet recently or can't remember them in my childhood. I would still rather they rerun these shows. when I was looking on my T.V. guide, I saw this program on Cartoon Network late at night called "cartoon cartoons" and it said it featured old shows like dexter, power puff, billy and mandy, courage and many more, so I decided to record it for the night then watch it in the morning. when it was morning, I couldn't wait to see the old shows, but they were not what I expected... instead of old shows.. there were... THE NEW SHOWS! That's right! CN faked me out and aired their new shows instead! Wow.. Cartoon Network.. late nights are either for adult shows or rerunning old shows and instead you air the shows you air everyday... WHAT WAS THE POINT!? Plus I hated all shows that they aired then except for regular show (there was AT, Gumball and ben 10 Omniverse and I hated THEM ALL! But regular show was okay) Well I guess I ...more - Pastakirby7

As much as I hated the live-action shows, I have to go with this. I'm a teenager so I never really got the chance to watch legendary CN shows like Ed, Edd, and Eddy, Johnny Bravo, Teen Titans, and Powerpuff Girls. I wish they just showed re-runs of these shows instead of the same overplayed episodes of 50s cartoons like Tom and Jerry, Scooby Doo, and Looney Toons. But sadly, that's probably never going to happen.

What happened to my childhood? Teen Titans, Foster's Home for imaginary friends and YOUNG JUSTICE, all gone. The new shows like Regular Show and Adventure Time are OVERRATED, it's a piece of garbage (no offense to anyone). They say nonsense and are bad influences for my younger siblings.R.I.P. Old Cartoon Network, I'll miss you :(

I AGREE! Regular Show and Adventure Time are COMPLETELY overrated! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

In Bulgaria Dexter's Lab is still in our CN - BorisRule

2 Live-Action shows

I seriously am questioning the intelligence of that move. "Cartoon Network"- a network for ANIMATED SHOWS. A three year old can even understand that. They probably wanted to compete with Nicks live action as well as Disney's, but its simple, YOU DON'T PUT LIVE ACTION ON A NETWORK THAT CEARLY STATES IT'S FOR CARTOONS! If they wanted to compete nevertheless, THEY NEEDED PUT THE SHOWS ON AN TOTALLY DIFFERENT CHANNEL. Then, I wouldn't find their live action rubbish as annoying ( even though its completely and utterly horrible! )

I loathe live-action on Cartoon Network so much! The name of your channel is CARTOON NETWORK! WHY ARE YOU GUYS AIRING LIVE-ACTION SHOWS, WHEN YOUR CHANNEL INDICATES THAT YOU'RE A NETWORK FOR AIRING CARTOONS! Oh well, I'm just glad they're not doing new episodes of Incredible Crew anymore, and hopefully that was their last live-action show.


The Only Good Live Action Shows on Cartoon Network is Big Bag and Small World from Back in the Mid 90's and the Late 90's. Big Bag is a Live Action Show from Back in the Mid 90's that shows Puppet Characters that look like Sesame Street Characters but the show is not as funny as Sesame Street. Small World is a Claymation Show that shows other Cartoons just like ToonHeads

3 Cancelling Ed Edd n Eddy

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! YOU LOVE ED, EDD N EDDY, AND ARE PISSED THAT THE SHOW ENDED?! Ed, Edd n Eddy is by far one of the WORST things Cartoon Network has ever made. I agree with PhantomStrider and RowdyCMoore, I too hate Ed, Edd n Eddy. We have REAL masterpieces from Cartoon Network, such as Grojband, Regular Show, Steven Universe Adventure Time, Sonic Boom, Johnny Bravo, Samurai Jack, Teen Titans (original), Dexter's Laboratory (seasons 1 and 2), the original Powerpuff Girls (seasons 1 to 4), the Amazing World of Gumball, Courage the Cowardly Dog, the Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, Class of 3000... REALLY?! THIS IS THE NUMBER ONE BEST CARTOON NETWORK SHOW OF ALL TIME?! The cartoon from the bastard behind the Brothers Grunt about the three kids trying to get jawbreakers all the time?! Apparently, THIS was the true masterpiece by Cartoon Network that will be remembered for the ages?! I cannot understand what people like about this show. AT ALL! I ...more

You lost credibility when you said Steven Universe is a masterpiece - ScroogeMcEdgeLord

It was cancelled because one of the animators died in season 6 and they had to finish the season with a movie. I thought this show would run for a long time. SpongeBob has been around for 16 years since 1999 and the Simpsons have been around for 26 years now. Rugrats ran for 13 years from 1991-2004 but that's not long enough. And adventure time replaced Ed Ed n eddy which was a big mistake (sorry adventure time fans)

I miss Ed, Edd n Eddy.

Let's face it: This show had to end eventually. As much as I love this show, it probably would have started to suck if it had continued on for another few seasons. It went on for over half a decade, which is plenty. - Zach808

4 Cancelling Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends

Foster's was, still is, and always will be an iconic show! That's all there is to it a show with humor that my parents like it as much as me but it's not dirty. This was a show that was mad for ages 3-103 my sister watches this, and she started when she was 3 she is 5 now by the way and my grandma loved it so did my mom. My whole family still loves this show. Shows like this Billy and Mandy, and Ed, Edd, n Eddy were the shows I still watch and I'm 15 now I loved Total Drama but it got old quick except a few characters! Regular Show is hilarious but all these other shows are just crap! Moral of the story old shows were what were great on Cartoon Network!

I'm crying right now because they cancelled this, and the very talented men Craig McCracken went on to make Wander Over Yonder. Here comes the tears...

Foster's was one of the last awesome show on cartoon network, along with chowder and billy and mandy.
I'll admit, I like regular show, but foster's was way better.

I know this show will be bad if I watch it, but I've never watched this show before because I was born in 2009

5 Losing the contract with Hanna-Barbera

Bring Back Hanna-Barbera! Okay, Cartoon Network?

Why, Cartoon Network?! Why?! Of all the things you could have done, instead you removed all Hanna-Barbera cartoons, the ones who made the channel a success in the first place! Hanna-Barbera cartoons are and always will be the BEST! You made a HUGE mistake of removing these, Cartoon Network! A HUGE MISTAKE!

Cartoon Network has really gone down hill! I mean seriously who wants to watch a show about a bird that drinks beer and I'm referring to Regular show! Whatever happened to great shows like Scooby doo and the Looney tunes shows those shows were so clean and Family approved! Now a days every time you turn on the T.V. around 3:00 unusually the Amazing World of Gumball stays on till 5:00 or 6:00 and None of Hannah barbras shows don't even air on Cartoon Network! If you want to see the Classic Scooby doo shows or The Flintstones you have to watch the Boomer rang channel! I totally agree that Cartoon Network is going down hill very Fast and we can only Pray and Hope that it will change!

6 Importing YouTube Shows

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! Cartoon Network's IMPORTING YouTube NOW?! I mean, it's bad enough we have Nickelodeon Importing YouTube. What's next?! Disney Channel importing YouTube?! FOX KIDS IMPORTING YouTube?! I have always hated the Annoying Orange since day one. The T.V. show was even worse.

What goes on YouTube should stay on YouTube.

Annoying orange is a stupid show take it off

They Don't Do It Anymore

7 No More Older Cartoons on Boomerang

So stupid because Teen Titans Go, Garfield, New Scooby Doo, and other new shows are on boomerang like what?!?!?! Old shows at night?! I call that bull. AND I've seen some same Tom and Jerry cartoons like times. I barely see the old looney tunes because they replace it with Wabbit and Looney Tunes Show. I hope they bring back the Jetsons, Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, well basically HANNA BARBERA! So sad.

Boomerang was specifically MADE to show older shows like Yogi Bear, the Flintstones, the Jetsons, and other stuff. I stopped watching it as soon as they put that newer crap and killed the channel.

Seriously, if you move all of yogi bear and secret squirrel from Cartoon Network to a sister channel that's supposed to show all the old cartoons, then why am I watching MGM cartoons at 4 am with chowder and teen titans during the day. (PS I love these shows too. )

Here's my speech about why I HATE the new Boomerang network... This might get a bit long, because I have a lot of things to say about this, so here it goes...

When I found out Cartoon Network was giving Boomerang a new upgrade, I googled up the shows that were going to be shown on Boomerang and guess what the results were... Teen Titans Go, Garfield, The New Scooby Doo, Amazing World of Gumball, etc.

What the hell?! Boomerang was specifically meant to present older shows such as Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, The Flintstones, The Jetsons, etc.

The old slogan is gone too along with the old announcer. I loved the old announcer... he was like my homie. He's the reason he made me love Boomerang so much. I also remember watching Tom & Jerry when I was a kid... it was fun while it lasted. Now, they have this young boy taking over the announcer duties. What?! Who wants a little boy taking over as an announcer?! No offense, but Boomerang does not need a young-ass boy being ...more - MangoFruitJuice

8 No More Cartoon Cartoons

It is just a disgrace that Cartoon Network is not gonna have their Cartoon Cartoons anymore.

Cartoon cartoons was our best Friday night block besides toonami. We need back - dexter's laboratory, Johnny bravo, cow and chicken, I'm weasel, powerpuff girls, mike lu and og, courage the cowardly dog, Ed Edd n eddy, sheep in the big city, time squad, grim adventures of bully and Mandy, evil con carne, robot jones, and KND. Without those show Cartoon Network is garbage.

But why not cartoon cartoon fridays

They should make 90s and 2000s week.

9 Bad new programming

The only good shows of today's CN is Adventure Time, Regular Show, and Gumball. BUT THAT'S IT! - williamrozario

The only shows I cared about is Adventure Time, Teen Titans Go, Regular Show and the DC Nation Block. Other shows like Secret Mountain Fort Awesome, Problem Solverz, Gumball, Uncle Grandpa and any lego shows are nothing but crap, just crap.

The only good cartoons are Steven Universe, Adventure Time, and We Bare Bears!

I Only Like Teen Titans Go, PowerPuffgirls[2016 reboot], Gumball, All The Other Stuff Is Boring Execpt EVerything On Bommerang Like Tom And Jerry I like

10 Canceling Teen Titians For No Apparent Reason

My life ended the same day Teen Titans did...

They could have done so much more! With the plot, characters, relationships, EVERYTHING! I loved that show like nothing else, and now we're stuck with this "Teen Titans Go" crap that is a total disrespect to the original show. And don't even get me started on all the other crappy, meaningless shows that are now part of the regular programming. The loss of TT hit me hardest, but I lament the downfall of the entire network over the years.

I feel bad for kids growing up with CN these days. They have no idea what they missed.

They say a show can only have 5 seasons, but hey look how they milked the overrated Ben 10. If they can give that cartoon A TON of spin offs, don't tell me they can't make a season 6 of Teen Titans.

This was my favorite show, but they had to change it with Teen Titans Go which is the worst thing they could've done.

We never got to see what happened with beast boy and terra...

13 Cancelling Courage the Cowardly Dog

This show was super funny! They could have just gave it a few more seasons and it's a show!

It was a funny lil cn classic that got cancelled

I loved courage! It had funny moments while still keeping that creepy vibe. This was one of the best cartoons on Cartoon Network.

Courage the Cowardly Dog was one of my favorite childhood shows. Why cancel it? - MangoFruitJuice

15 Importing Canadian Shows

I usually don't discriminate cartoons by country, but I somehow get the hype most Canadian cartoons are bland and boring. Some Canadian CN cartoons, like Atomic Betty and Total Drama, were decent, while others, such as Fully Naked Animals and Zombie Squirrel, were so bad that I stopped watching after the theme song. Not only that, CN even imported cartoons from other countries, such as Ireland (Skunk Fu, a mediocre cartoon).

Grojband is another example of a bad Canadian show Cartoon Network imported. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

Showing Total Drama, Johnny Test, Grojband, and more? This sucks! Oh, "Ed, Edd n Eddy". You like that show, and that's made in Canada. Yeah, it's a Cartoon Network show that's made in Canada. You remember that show

Total drama, jimmy two shoes hero 108 are only my favorite imported shows from Canada and I always wonered what it is like over in Canada

They don't make these shows, Canada does, and CN just airs them. We want some new stuff, okay, Cartoon Network? Get rid of all of this bad Canadian garbage, because we want new original cartoons made by YOU guys! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

16 Cancelling Chowder

Okay, I can understand why they did, because Nicky Jones was hitting puberty, but couldn't they find another voice actor to do Chowder? They got Candi Milo to do Dexter when Cristine left, and that was around the time HIS episodes started to get "meh". But why couldn't they do the same for Chowder, and his episodes were always good.

I love Chowder! That show was great. Why in the hell did you guys cancel it?

I love this show! Cartoon Network... why. The only good shows left on Cartoon Network are Adventure Time, Gumball, Tom & Jerry, and Looney Tunes and that's it! Bring back Chowder! - BombBoo256

Who cares about this ridiculous monstrosity? - AinezoChan

17 Cancelling Fridays

When I was a kid, every Friday night my sister and I would eat at McDonalds, play in the indoor jungle gym and always be back home to watch johnny, courage, the girls, and the ed's. It's hard and sickening to watch Cartoon Network now with its new crap that are nothing but dogs and Turkeys like regular show (a badly drawn and thought of cartoon), adventure time (the worst drawn, unimaginative, all- dialogue and no art, rushed job, charmless cartoon), and gumball (a very badly animated and designed cartoon with bad plots and stories). But what started the slow agonizing death of Cartoon Network (Which I liked more that Nick and Disney) was when cartoon cartoons Friday was cancelled. I still miss the characters from my favorite shows introducing other good shows. If Cartoon Network wants to turn around, the need get rid of these dogs and bring back cartoon cartoons and start it on a Friday night.

2007 was a horrible year. I still have no problem with Friday Night Premiere Thunder, later known as "Friday Night Premiere Laser", but why would I ever watch Fried Dynamite. Fried Dynamite sucks.

Fridays was okay I guess, but Cartoon Cartoon Fridays was the best!

18 The New Logo

The Logo Isn't As Bad As How The Channel Is Doing Itself, But Disney Channel Is Doing A Lot Worse Than The Recent Cartoon Network.

I think Cartoon Network's logo now is crap and I miss the checkerboard logo and the cartoon cartoon logo.

The original logo was awesome.

In the future... I wonder what happened to the new logo when the logo transform to old ones with new details after the dictatorship of any bad cartoon shows ended.

TTG got cancelled ( overthrown ) (the same way as Hitler did), all of the new bad shows and reboots we're later destroyed, good ol' shows will reunite, the new good shows will become popular later.
CN brought back to it's glory after many years (and months) of struggle against tyranny and dictatorships after Teen Titans GO! finally surrendered and restored to it's health.

In the present... CN: "Someday, I will become better as the old CN and the good shows will save my reputation and the bad shows will own their way to surrender for their power against me. From a crazy old man helping kid, 5 impersonating superheroes goes on useless adventures, shows that rewritten the story. *sigh*. Someday, I will hire the new show to help me."

"I want YOU to joined the program! " -CN poster.
