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.

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

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.

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

Live Action shows including that abomination Out Of Jimmy's Head SHOULD NEVER BELONG ON CARTOON NETWORK! Cartoon Newtork was supposed to be the original "World First and Only 24 Hour Network that shows all Cartoons all the time "(which is now a bold face lie since they started showing the live action crap on their network) and saying that they're "Home of the Top Toon Stars" (which half are neither shown or never broadcasted on Cartoon Network)!

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

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! )

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!

Air the old shows like Ed Edd n Eddy, Powerpuff Girls, and Dexter's Laboratory. Teen Titans Go! Sucks. It's ironic that they barely air Adventure Time and Regular Show these days. They used to treat them better.

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)

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

The Best CartoonNetwork show get cancelled and plus it so funny that Ed Edd and Eddy was drinking water and they flips on to the ground over and over again and how is that eve possible Ed dy just flicked a spider of the doorknob and came off the door and rolled in to a hole and the stairs was eating eddy. only 2 remained best Pokemon and regular 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

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.

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'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...

6 Importing YouTube Shows

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.

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.

Annoying orange is a stupid show take it off

7 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!

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.

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!

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?

8 Canceling Teen Titians For No Apparent Reason

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.

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

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.

NO DARN REASON TO CANCEL IT! This cartoon was going to great places continuing with Robin and Starfire's relationship. Terra being alive, and what the Titans would now face with that weird creature that's always hiding in walls and stuff. But they just have to cancel it. The fans were waiting for so much more. This was such a big blow for me. My life ended. Now CN comes with this rttg calling it your favorite show?! Ha! In their dreams. I hope CN rots in a pit of doom

9 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.

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. )

10 Stuart Snyder

well flapjack chowder gumball Christina Miller was worse she came in 2014 Stuart also made other goods like adventure time regular show steven universe to and one of the animators of ed edd n eddy died so that's why it was cancelled at least Snyder made some good shows lol

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.

The Contenders
11 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.

12 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.

But why not cartoon cartoon fridays

13 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.

14 Ditching the 3D Cartoon City

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!

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

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!

CN City bumpers were great, and now, they've left since 2007, which was a terrible year for Cartoon Network.

15 Aqua Teen promotional hoax

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

16 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.



17 A Lame New Theme
18 The New Logo

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!

This should be further up the list

The original logo was awesome.

19 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.

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!

It's horrible it's about a guy whose hallucinating from drugs

20 Canceling Johnny Bravo

Yah because he is another brock but is dum ugly and is 9000 percent more liking girls and dumped more and its funny

21 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.

Fried dynamite is horrible cartoon planet was ok and now in today pizza night with pizza steve and mr. gus is terrible! Because I hate uncle grandpa and they ruined you awesome Friday memories!

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

22 Cancelling Chowder

Cn, bring it back! I will renew this show, even if I have to force them! Or do the voice of chowder myself. But, there's a slight chance that another kid will start working at cn, and then cartoon network decides,"hey, this kid is good, maybe we should renew chowder with this kid doing the voice OF chowder."

I agree, they shouldn't have canceled Chowder, but this had nothing to do with Chowder's voice actor hitting puberty. The creator of the show said CN canceled Chowder so they could cram in more live action shows onto the lineup.

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!

You guys are praising what's literally one of the worst animated shows of all time! Chowder didn't do anything unlike Adventure Time and Regular Show!

23 Cancelling Courage the Cowardly Dog

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

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

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

Yes, it may have a weird design but it is pretty good to be honest.

24 Getting Rid of Boomerang's Old Logo and Numbers and Making Its Logo Like Cartoon Network's Logo Today

I miss the old logo and its bumpers now and the old narrator who goes like like this we will return to boomerang from Cartoon Network now we have the kid a kid wko sounds like he's six a six year old that's 2009 that's when almost all classics were gone

The noods were BETTER

25 Importing Canadian Shows

Okay, I did enjoy the Babaloos AND Adventures of Tintin. Yeah, I enjoyed Babaloos, a show from Cookie Jar, one of the worst studios said by various people. Come on, it's way more enjoyable than Johnny Test and Caillou! ReBoot was great.

But look, since the mid-2000s (2003 included), Cartoon Network has imported a lot of the crazy shows from Teletoon in Canada. Yes, YTV shows too like Almost Naked Animals and Sidekick, but every single Teletoon show on Cartoon Network was horrible.

Bakugan was okay, but Pecola, Totally Spies!, Atomic Betty, Johnny Test, George of the Jungle 2007, Total Drama, 6teen, Stoked, Hot Wheels Battle Force 5, SuperNoobs, Ridonculous Race, Total DramaRama, and Spliced all suck!

Teletoon's only good show on Cartoon Network was Grojband, and that's an objective fact! - Grojfan101

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).

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

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!
