Cartoon NetworkFound on ytimg.com
Cartoon Network is an American basic cable and satellite television channel that is owned by the Turner Broadcasting System division of Time Warner.
It went from a station with cartoons 24/7 to a channel that airs about five cartoons a day and ends early in the evening.
Not all their current shows are bad, but the way the channel schedules their shows, advertises, and runs the channel is just pathetic compared to how they used to do it.
They used to have variety, a decent logo, a great voice announcer, great marathons and events like The Big Pick, The Big Game and June Bug. And they had great blocks like Toonami, Acme Hour, Cartoon Cartoon Fridays, O Canada and many more.
Today Cartoon Network just tries too hard to be cool, which is sad considering how they still have some decent new cartoons, but it's the channel itself that makes watching them such an unpleasant experience.
Basically, these days viewers are better off watching the good current Cartoon Network shows online.
Steven Universe and Uncle Grandpa were mistakes waiting to happen. They cancelled it and then brought it back saying that it's the second season just to replace Clarence, Adventure Time, and Regular show because their seasons ended. I used to remember watching Foster's home for imaginary friends, Ben Ten, Teen Titans, Code-name kids next door, Courage the Cowardly Dog, and many more. Now they replaced it with Steven Universe which is about the pointless adventures of an obese boy with 3 other dirt bags. Uncle Grandpa which is about an annoying old man on hallucinations with weird friends. (I know all this because my brothers watch it. ) I don't want to explain the Lego shows because they suck so bad. And just when you thought they couldn't ruin Teen Titans, they made you wrong with bad jokes, bad references, and copies of episodes from the original series. Regular show, Adventure Time, Gumball, and Clarence are funny shows but the ones I just Explained all suck. All in All Those shows ...more
Steven Universe and Uncle Grandpa isn't cancelled. Use some research!
Steven Universe has a great plot and characters, so why is it a mistake? 😡 - Skullkid755
The downfall of Cartoon Network has also severely affected this new generation of kids, all of us who were born in the era of good quality cartoons like Kids Next Door or Johnny Bravo are plagued with the sad sight of all these kids who were forced to grow up with shows like Chowder, Amazing World Of Gumball or Adventure Time, and them actually defending those shows just disappoints me even more, it's sad that these kids will likely never know of the good quality that cartoons used to have, and they'll continue to believe that all these crappy modern cartoons are the ones that have quality
Exactly! I was born in 2005, so the cartoons I watched were the modern shows everyone hated. Now I wish I was a kid in the 90's. - Popsicles
The shows are only great in the minds of 7 year old boys. The Reular Show, Adventure Time, Total Drama Island, and Johnny Test are incredibly annoying. There are dirty jokes on these shows and they say words such as "hickey" when their target audience is too young to know what that means. Teen Titans Go is the worst show on T.V. and it has the worst jokes on T.V.. Level Up and Incredible Crew have really stupid concepts. I don't even understand Chima and Ninjago. The plot of those shows is a group of Lego people brought together by some prophecy need to defeat evil. The only good shows are reruns of Tom and Jerry and Hole in the Wall. Cartoon Network has dug from the depths of hell to find humor and they finally hit rock bottom. It's not funny at all. I have an 8 year old brother and whenever Cartoon Network is on our T.V. I walk out of the room because I cannot stand this channel.
I will never forgive Cartoon Network for ruining my childhood! They never rerun the good shows and all the new shows suck! The only modern show I actually like is Regular Show, but that's pretty much it. And seeing a commercial for a new Powerpuff Girls reboot made me cringe. The person Buttercup was beating up looked like Uncle Grandpa and I knew the reboot already had the potential to suck like Teen Titans Go! and Be Cool, Scooby Doo!. Cartoon Network, do us one favor: rerun the older shows instead of giving them crappy reboots! - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Cartoon Network used to have a lot of great shows such as Ed, Edd n Eddy, The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, Teen Titans, Dexter's Laboratory and other great shows that they used to show, but a lot of their show are already canceled, some of their shows only show them at boomerang. I miss a lot of their old show that Cartoon Network used to show. Cartoon Network have some bad shows such as uncle grandpa, Teen titans go, The problem solvers, level up, The high fructose adventures of annoying orange, Johnny test, and many others shows that I hate in my opinion. I used to watch Cartoon Network a lot since the mid and late 2000s
Sure, it may have some bad shows (Uncle Grandpa and Teen Titans Go! are by far the worst), it has most good ones. See those 4 Emojis cornering the logo? I like to call them 'The Saviors of Cartoon Network! ' They have great shows, like Adventure Time, The Amazing World of Gumball, Steven Universe, and Regular Shows. And they show awesome movies from time to time! Disney Channel and Nickelodeon are HORRIBLE, but Cartoon Network is rising once again. They will find out soon that they have some horrible shows, and, unlike Disney and Nickelodeon, they will cancel them. Most horrible shows CN has had are now canceled. Nickelodeon and Disney are REFUSING to cancel their bad shows for a legit reason. They still have SpongeBob (after 17 years), Breadwinners, Sanjay and Craig, and so many terrible others.
Dear Lord, how did my favorite T.V. channel from my childhood go so downhill. I'm not a 90's kid (I was born in the 2000's), but I have enough common sense to know that Cartoon Network's shows are crap compared to the old ones. Instead of airing reruns of shows like Ed, Edd, n Eddy, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Teen Titans, and Dexter's Laboratory, we have to put up with Clarence, Uncle Grandpa, Teen Titans Go!, and Johnny Test. Not to mention another load of crappy modern cartoons. Please bring back the classics. Please. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
You 90's idiots think that Cartoon Network is bad? Go watch modern Disney and Nickelodeon that fail to improve their shows.
I have to admit that a couple of shows are horrible e.g Clarence Teen Titans Go(kamikaze), Uncle Granpa, but the rest get 8 on IMDb (out of 10) that more like 4 out of five, in addition CN tries computerized animation for the record, noticeable in Steven Universe, Regular Show is ironically regular, though it is hand drawn, tries to show what typical slackers do, how much annoyance they result in, and how much trouble they gain, and for Adventure Time, shows a post apocalyptic land, so it's typical for Finn to live in a treehouse, and they are trying to modernize their look, the 90's are over since 16 years and counting, so the age group that your glorified shows are aimed, which are good as well, has changed, as of this era everything is open to everyone. - TheGeekdroidv1.0
Out of all the children's channels, Cartoon Network has gone downhill the most. They used to air great cartoons like The Powerpuff Girls, Dexter's Laboratory, Ed, Edd, n' Eddy, The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, Codename: Kids Next Door, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Teen Titans, and more, but now they air terrible cartoons like Uncle Grandpa, Adventure Time, Regular Show, the Amazing World of Gumball (I liked Season 1 though), Clarence, and worst of all, Teen Titans Go! It sickens me with the decisions children's channels make nowadays.
I personally like Cartoon Network, but this era is THE WORST. Let's go onto the current shows which are terrible:
Secret mountain fort awesome
Lucky enough there are two savors from these bad shows, but are not strong enough to withstand the bad shows:
The amazing world of gumball (really, my favorite show. Awesome animation and jokes. )
If CN can return the good old shows and make new, good ones, then they might be more popular.
CN has more good shows than Nickelodeon, but they are doing way worse in terms of their business practices. They aired Toddler Titans, Shrek, and Rio all day for no reason on Regular Show's finale day. They recently acquired this crappy series called My Knight and Me, and they shove Toddler Titans NO in our faces even more. They also leaked the new Steven Universe episodes and barely advertised the new season of Adventure Time. - Cartoonfan202
What did this channel do that the other kids channels didn't do? What did Cartoon Network do that Disney and Nick didn't do? It ruined my childhood, Where to begin with this network? Adventure Time Seasons 1-4 and Regular Show Seasons 1-4 were pretty decent, and Gumball Seasons 1-3 were great, But it wasn't until Teen Titans Go aired its first episode when I knew Cartoon Network Changed, and that was the dark beginning, Then the network thought, "Let's make more bad shows" They Jumped the Shark the Second, Third, and Fourth Time, With the Cringe-Worthy Uncle Grandpa, The Overrated Steven Universe, and the bad moral-filled Clarence, then they decided to put videos of kids talking about these shows, Jumping the Shark a fifth time, In 2015, They started adding LGBT couples in shows like Adventure Time, That's right, Adventure Time was ruined, They jumped the shark a sixth time! (Although there was one in Courage the Cowardly Dog But that was one show, They didn't spread it into ...more
Whoever included the Lego shows as a reason this network went downhill: you are very, very, very brave. I mean I agree with you, but Lego is practically a religion and sooner or later its zealots will come around and insult you (and me) for think such things.
When I was little, I saw shows like courage the cowardly dog, the powerpuff girls, Ed, Edd, and Eddie, dexter's lab, etc. Snows like adventure time and regular show are not too bad, but shows like uncle grandpa, teen titans go, just suck.
If you thought it was bad in the early 2010's, it's getting much worse. Regular Show ended over a year ago, Adventure Time is literally about to end, and they hardly ever air Steven Universe anymore. Those were the three shows keeping the channel good. - Popsicles
Back in the old days, Cartoon Network was good, but now its going downhill. I think CN just started running out of ideas. I hate Adventure Time, Uncle Grandpa, Clarence and Johnny Test. But I like Regular Show, The Amazing World of Gumball and Pokemon. But shows like Teen Titans Go, Steven Universe, Annoying Orange, and Tom and Jerry Tales I both like and don't like. - EpicJake
Nowadays all the show its not good influence for the young children because the program very violent like ex:( total drama, gumble, uncle grandpa, Johnny test, regular show and more ) that's why we block the Cartoon Network in the house
There was a time when they knew what they were doing, when they played Toonami from 7:00 to midnight, but as I recall, from 2008 onwards the channel lost all respect. - Wopwop
Adventure Time, Regular Show, and Problem Solverz are terrible! What have the creators been smoking? It's like they don't know what comedy means. Stupid I say
What happened to you, guys? First, you were my childhood, Now some of your shows are the most annoying and overrated shows of all time, You weren't always like this, You had Chowder, Flapjack, Courage, and Dexter back in the day, Now you got Toddler Titans Goo Goo Ga Ga and Steven Puniverse, You used to have Adventure Time and Regular Show as your favorite shows, Now it feels like you hate the two shows, Regular Show not getting a marathon during the finale and Adventure Time having one episode on the schedule, Your last hope is We Bare Bears, but other than that, Cartoon Network is ready to die
It was all fine until that fateful month of May 2010 when they took everything away from me By putting garbage shows such as adventure time, Regular show, and Teen titans go that make ren and stimpy good for kids
Well! At Least This Channel Is Trying To Improve. Nickelodeon Never Wants To Improve. So I Don't See How That Channel Can Be Below This.
We used to get Cartoon Network in English and since last December, we get it in Portuguese! How can it be possible? I mean, I lost access to new episodes of shows and I can't get it back!
Cartoon Network is awesome! Regular Show,The Amazing World of Gumball,Steven universe,Lego NinjaGo masters of spinjitzu and Clarence
