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

If you want the old shows watch boomerang. All boomerang airs now is Looney Tunes, Tom and Jerry and Scooby Doo, but that Boomerangs problem not Cartoon Network. Why would Cartoon Network air the old shows epically in an era were T.V. is dying. They need to make new shows, and if they only did old shows the channel would be stale (it's not like Boomerang, were it's a channel designed for old cartoons). One of the biggest criticisms of Cartoon Network is that they only air Teen Titans Go and never give other shows a time to shine, and I don't see how retuning old cartoons would help. Keep old cartoons on Boomerang and new cartoons on Cartoon Network.

I know I'm going to get downvoted for this... But NO. You guys think for CN to be great we need reruns, right? It WILL get repetitive and there will lack ANYTHING original. Take off your nostalgia glasses cause they're blinding you, if you want reruns go to Boomerang--simple as that. Heck, there's something called the internet too! Go and search yourself a few episodes.

The thing is CN doesn't NEED reruns of old shows to be great. It needs ORIGINALITY, a fresh breath of air where you don't know what's going to happen next in the episode. Modern CN shows have the potential to be great and even greater than old CN, my proof? Steven Universe, Over the Garden Wall, etc. --Heck I'll admit I admire it even more than a few of the heavy-hitters back then. I heard Adventure Time is getting back on track too, and Regular show as always is hilarious. And not only that, but new shows like Turbo Plaza are coming soon. We gotta move on from the past for a reason.

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.

For CN canada were lucky we have johnny bravo,dexter,courage, and billy and mandy. Problem is no ppg 1998 and its replaced by (shudders) ppg 2016 that is overplayed instead of ttg in usa. Since I was born in 2005 and just missed those 4 reruns I cam record them and get a glimse of what it was like in the 90s since they air at 12:00-4:00. Adult Swim I don't watch but for older people its pretty decent. There's the ventre bros, Samurai jack 2001-2004 episodes harvey birdman is probably the show I can watch on adult swim along with samurai jack, and the brak show. Which is better? cn usa or cn canada?

2 Live-Action shows

The LATE 2000s were not Cartoon Network's best years. I know Cartoon Network had Big Bag, which was also terrible, but that was just a failed experiment, like Tickle U. CN Real and Out of Jimmy's Head are not the only things that ruined Cartoon Network, but they still did. No, it was not because of Cartoon Network's new 2004 logo, I'm fine with that logo, even if I prefer the original checkerboard logo. It's one thing to remove your classics, due to avoiding having to cramp your schedule, that's also fine. But giving us live-action?! That is just a lousy move, CN. - RegularShowFTWSuperjailFTL

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

There is a reasons why its called Cartoon Network. It was supposed to be made for animated cartoons shows not live action shows.

Even 2000s kids hate live-action on Cartoon Network, and I don't even like the 2000s!

3 Airing Too Much Teen Titans Go!

They treat TTG like it's the best thing ever and treat the good shows like a number, or even a shadow. It's like if they have been brainwashed forgetting how much the other current shows are worth (Gumball, Steven Universe, Regular Show). Cancel TTG right now and rerun the original series!

CN, just give TTG a BREAK ALREADY! It's been showing WAY too much on their channel. Like when there were new episodes of shows once a week leading up for the PPG reboot, they put new TTG episodes for Monday and Sunday! Come on NOW! We Bare Bears' new episode only showed on Wednesday. Again! Give it a BREAK!

It is actually the most aired cartoon in CN. Do they seriously think people will waste their time watching that junk?! I mean Steven universe is shown 1 eve day while it is shown 4 times everyday I mean they don't even show AT and RS anymore. What is wrong with them. CN is ruined forever and it's all because of TTG, UG and Clarence!

It drove me mad when I found out about this. What's worse, they're bringing it back for season 4 (I just hope it's the last season)!

4 Cancelling Ed Edd n Eddy

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 wish this show is still on. It's funny and the characters are likeable (especially plank) and The situations the characters get I to are pretty silly. I miss this show.

How dare they! I grew up with this and teen titans which were both canceled. Every time there's a good cartoon they have to cancel it. What's next, they'll cancel Steven universe?! CN is just a terrible network for kids

Honestly this show was spectacular. I loved the characters as well as their relatability. One of the few slapstick shows I found hilarious, even in the present!

5 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 miss this show so much! Ever since it was cancelled in 2009, that's where Cartoon Network decline with the new logo. Foster's was my number one favorite show in Cartoon Network and I love it ever since it first aired. I loved all the characters so much.

I found Foster's Imaginary Friends when I was using Netflix. I am a 2010's kid, which techinically means that shows like Adventure Time, Regular Show, Annoying Orange, Clarence, Uncle Grandpa, SpongeBob SquarePants [ I know that it premeired in 1999, but it is part of my childhood] And all crappy Disney Sitcoms are part of my childhood. I've seen only few episodes of it. but it is better than 93 percent of cartoons these days.

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.

6 Importing YouTube Shows

This should ONLY be for T.V. channels that no longer exist (Like Jetix) not for T.V. channels that are never going to go away.

They only made one show that was based off a YouTube series, that show was Annoying Orange.

What goes on YouTube should stay on YouTube.

7 Bad new programming

It seems that shows like Teen Titans Go are taking up most of the airing time, it is for me. I checked and also went on the "Catch up T.V." (a option were you can watch shows that aired previously on a channel) and I haven't seen one single Steven Universe episode. Their airing schedule is horrendous, that's probably why CN is getting so much hate.

The cartoons I like: Steven Universe, The amazing world of gumball, Adventure time, Regular show.

I really hope Infinity Train gets accepted, it seems like an amazing cartoon that may bring CN back up.

I like Gumball, Regular Show, Steven Universe, Clarence, and most of all Adventure Time, which is my favorite show ever! But others are awful. Here are the bad ones:
Problem Solverz-gave me migraines
Uncle Grandpa-no plot whatsoever
Flapjack-SpongeBob ripoff
Chowder-another SpongeBob ripoff
Teen Titans Go! -good until feb.2014, when it ran out of ideas

To me, the good shows are Adventure Time, Teen Titans Go, Gumball, and Steven Universe. Others like wander over yonder, uncle grandpa, those Lego shows are crap(no offense). Where did my favorite Tom and Jerry go? Even when they renewed Tom and Jerry, it's crappy! I like the old Tom and Jerry, eventhough it's reruns, I love it!

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.

8 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.

I know it was super sad. And also they replaced it with Teen Titans Go which was bad cause like seriously no one likes teen titans go

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.

I loved this show. This show defines my childhood. I am sad that it got cancelled and was replaced by hot garbage (ahem Teen Titans Go!). Teen Titans Go! is a mockery of this amazing show. They also said they were going to have another season, but it never came. I am completely disappointed.

9 Losing the contract with Hanna-Barbera

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!

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!

Again guys Boomerang is a thing. The schedule has gotten worse recently, but complain to Boomerang about that instead. Also they never lost the contract, they just moved the content over.

Whether you like Hanna-Barbera or not, you have to agree that if it wasn't for those cartoons, CN wouldn't exist. So why lose Hanna-Barbera?

10 No More Older Cartoons on Boomerang

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

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.

Okay so in the direct T.V. description, it says "boomerang is filled with only classic cartoons". Okay so why am I seeing filth like teen titans go and amazing world of gumball, those are clearly not classics. Also what happend to the Jetsons and Yogi bear, those are classic cartoons, but I guess Cartoon Network was like hmmm those good cartoons gotta go we have to make more room for Teen titans go.

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.

The Newcomers

? No more action cartoons
The Contenders
11 Calling Teen Titans Go! your "favorite show"

I'm ABSOULUTESLY SICK OF THEM DOING THAT! Even though it has a lot of bad plots and animation, doesn't mean that they need to shove it in our faces and call it your so called favorite show! All the characters are stupid, and I don't know why the hell CN would do this just because a lot of kids love the show! They put a commercial for viewers on their channel about why it's a great show, but stupid reasons like for eg: clean diaper, easy money, cats and other stupid reasons. But we want to know the real reason why they think it's the best show. Every show needs to be a favorite! Not just TTG!

I get so angry when it says that. I mean are they forcing us to like it. Every time it s says that I want to Crack the screen of my T.V.. TTG is a terrible cartoon that I'd not even for kids ( seriously th episode for the laundry showing Robin and Beastboy naked). It doesn't teach kids anything yet you call our favourite show! CN have no shame and are doomed. I don't know what's next. CN just took a huge step backwards. The best thing to do is to put what the viewers want but CN are idiots to think of that! All I can say is TTG SUCKS AND ALWAYS WILL!

It makes me so mad! It's like they're forcing us to like it.

Teen titans go, your new hated show.

12 Stuart Snyder

Christina Miller is much worse. Well at least Snyder had made a few good shows (flapjack, chowder and regular show were the best).

Why is he still president?

I'm happy that he's fired.

Jim Samples was better.

13 No More Cartoon Cartoons

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.

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

They make good cartoons like Adventure Time, Regular Show, Steven Universe, and We Bare Bears.

I miss the Cartoon Cartoons, man!

14 Putting Steven Universe on Long Hiatus between Seasons

Steven Universe is our current best show on Cartoon Network now, and after each season, they put in on hiatus for about a year, sometimes a year, and worse, they sometimes even put it on hiatus before the season is over.

In between seasons, all we can watch are crappy shows like Uncle Grandpa, the new Powerpuff Girls and Teen Titans Go.
Not to mention that one SU episode had Uncle Grandpa.

This show is really rare to watch, even though it's the current best on Cartoon Network.

It's said the next episode won't air until Thanksgiving, Cartoon Network is screwed.

15 Ditching the 3D Cartoon City

I'm proud of being a 1990s kid, I really am. But I LOVE Cartoon Network's city era. Yes, I may not like how they got rid of most of their classics, but that was due to avoiding having to cramp your schedule, which explains why we got Boomerang, but I felt that the city bumpers were highly creative, colorful, and very imaginative. Yes, Cartoon Network's 2004 logo isn't as good as the original checkerboard logo, but I do think the logo was pretty good. I honestly could care less if Cartoon Network changed their logo. I know you don't like the 2004 or 2010 logo, but it's my personal opinion, and I respect yours. Some of my favorite shows premiered in that era, like Atomic Betty, Megan XLR, Code Lyoko, Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi, Camp Lazlo!, the Batman, Justice League Unlimited, and the Life and Times of Juniper Lee. However, shows like Robotboy, Ben 10, and My Gym Partner's a Monkey just ruined the era for me. I could care less about Sunday Pants and Tickle ...more

How dare you praise the City era of Cartoon Network? That era was one of the worst eras that Cartoon Network has made! You should be praising the 2010s Check it era, not THIS one! Yes, I know the CN City bumpers have CN characters interacting with each other, but it doesn't work, because of the 2nd logo! The 2nd Logo was the network's most scarring logo, that I think the 2010 logo is far better!

You know what? I have an idea! If CN & Boomerang aired these & the powerhouse bumpers, the ratings could flow in & could rip nick & Disney to shreds! But Boomerang MUST bring the old shows back!

To be honest while Yes! and Fall (The ones that came after City) weren't that great in terms of bumpers, the Nood/CN Real era was great or at least good in terms of bumpers they were really creative and the one of two pros of the CN Real era

16 Getting Rid of Boomerang's Old Logo and Numbers and Making Its Logo Like Cartoon Network's Logo Today
17 Aqua Teen promotional hoax

This needs to be WAY higher. This is the reason Cartoon Network died.

18 Ending Regular Show

I remember that. It was my fave show on there aside from Adventure Time and Gumball. It was so good too. I don't know why they gave it the guillotine.

Actually, this is one of Cartoon Network's biggest improvements yet. Why didn't they end Regular Show in the first place. RS is just as bad as CN Real.

I KNOW!
Regular Show was my favorite. I remember waiting all week for it to air. Now they've replaced it with garbage like TTG...

Can we talk about how they treated it during it's finale day? Because I'm not sure you want to know

19 Cancelling Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi

When someone asks you "What's the best show ever put on Cartoon Network? ", I guarantee that Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi will run right through your head at least once. Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi was one of, if not, the best shows that Cartoon Network has ever put out, with amazing writing, a cast of loveable characters, that are still adored, even to this day, hell, they are on T-shirts, they are on lunchboxes, they were on a tun of stuff. There are a lot of YouTube videos constantly replaying old clips from the show's history, because they were so iconic. I can't tell you how many times I've walked around my school, and I see girls with shirts and having bags with Yumi on it. Yumi is probably the most loved character on the show, and for good reason, Yumi was awesome, she practically made this show! When you put Yumi and Ami together, with their amazing voice actors, you get an amazing show! It ran on Cartoon Network for YEARS! And then of course, gone! Cartoon Network, I don't understand why ...more

Oh my god, everyone's love for Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi is REALLY getting on my nerves! People are forgetting about the 2010s, a great animation decade, where we have shows like Adventure Time, Regular Show, Sonic Boom, Grojband, and Clarence. Gumball and Steven Universe were good too, but I mostly love Grojband, Adventure Time, Regular Show, and Sonic Boom. Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi IS a god awful show, and it never should've existed. Before you say that this is better than Teen Titans Go! and/or Johnny Test, let me stop you right there, and tell you why Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi IS just as bad as TTG and JT. They're all loud, obnoxious, and annoying! Saying that this show is better is like saying garbage is better than diahrrea. I'm glad Cartoon Network cancelled this show. I don't understand why people like this show. At all! I think it's terrible in every way!

Ugh! Why do you people even LIKE THIS SHOW! It's not that good, it's HORRIBLE! The only good shows to come out of Cartoon Network's City/Yes era, that are made only BY Cartoon Network (and not some other company) are Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, the Life and Times of Juniper Lee, Ben 10, Robotboy (even though it is a European co-production), and Class of 3000. That's literally it. You are out of your mind and have very bad taste when you think shows like Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi are good. And I literally mean it.

I know I'm gonna get a lot of hate for this, but... I TOO didn't want Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi to be cancelled. Yes, I know I'm not the biggest fan, but a lot of people really like it, UNDERSTANDABLY that is, because it actually does a nice job paying homage to GREAT classic cartoons, such as Looney Tunes, Tom and Jerry, the Flintstones, the Jetsons, and Rocky and Bullwinkle. It was cancelled because of the production of Re-Animated, and Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi fans have every RIGHT to bash at that movie, because Cartoon Network has not learned from Big Bag, when it comes to live-action at the time. Even if this wasn't Cartoon Network's best show, it does not deserve that cliffhanger ending. - RegularShowFTWTTGFTL

20 Remove Steven Universe reruns and only play new episodes on Thursdays

Why would they do that to such a good show? Reruns are nice, new episodes are awesome. Are they trying to kill the show off or something?

Why can't Cartoon Network just cancel Steven Universe 100%? That would be awesome.

21 A Lame New Theme
22 Cartoon Network Losing Hours to Adult Swim

I strongly agree with this one, just because kids need to go to sleep, doesn't mean that CN needs to lose hours to Adult Swim, when it should be boomerang because CN created Boomerang and now they ditched it! Or they need to rerun the old good shows like Disney Channel. But seriously, Adult Swim needs to be on another channel instead of CN!

Good news! Ever since last week, CN's hours got extended! So now it switches over to adult swim at 9:00 but I don't know if that change is permanent or it's only for the holiday season.

23 The New Logo

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.

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

The 2004 logo isn't as great as the original checkerboard logo, but it's still better than that god awful 2010 logo!

We want the CN checkerboard logo back.

24 Premiering Uncle Grandpa

Fun Fact: The creator, Peter Browngardt, worked on the masterpiece Chowder. Then made the abomination known as Secret Mountain Fort Awesome, and then he made...this.

Oh come on, Uncle Grandpa isn't that bad. There are way worse cartoons out there. I'm sure Peter Browngardt is a nice guy.

I thought Secret Mountain Fort Awesome was bad, this show is even worse!

TAWOG Regular Show and Adventure Time are good but Uncle Grandpa sucks like a vacuum cleaner!
