Anybody else turn on their tv after watchin Adult Swim from the night before and it be on Cartoon Network and instantly change the channel?

Well recently i havent changed the channel as fast.

Cartoon Network has like changed almost everything about itself. now they have reality shows and **** with teenagers doing random ****, and its actually not terrible. (i havent watched it but the commercials are actually interesting) For example, they have a show called "Survive This", which is kind of like Survivorman or Alaska Week. They even have a GHOST HUNTER SHOW lol


Here's the link to see clips of the reality shows:

http://www.cartoonnetwork.com/

It appears they are targeting a slightly older audience than before, and it might be working. They have a crap ton of new tv shows and got rid of the old bull****(not OLD OLD like the classics of the 90's and early 00's, but the crap from last year and a couple years before that)

Also they have alot more random mini tv shows that are kinda funny to watch like Mall Goths.... IN SPACE! (trust me, there were lols to be had)

So Pit, anybody else notice the change?

Does anybody care?

tl;dr: Cartoon Network has changed again, do you like it?


edit: there is still some crap, but they have cleaned it up ALOT

Cartoon Network has, and will always be, ****.


You shut your filthy mouth. Seriously, don't tell me you never enjoyed ANYTHING on Cartoon Network, even as a little kid.

They were showing Ed, Edd, and Eddy earlier today. That's a plus in my book.

Then I saw the commercial for their new show...slam ball.

May the Schwartz be with us! 2012

Insult, back in my day we would beat up anyone who didn't like dexters laboratory, or ed edd and eddy, or even timesquad, cow and chicken, and the power puff girls. Then this new stuff came and ruined it.

What im saying is no matter what nothing on cartoon network now can compare to the old cartoon network.

I like Chowder and the Misadventures of Flapjack. Other than that, I don't give a care about the new CN.

I miss late 90s and early 00s Cartoon Network. Nostalgia

Apparently in my county, Cartoon Network isn't available on basic cable, but in the next county over at my Dad's house, it is. What bull.

maybe you need to read my OP again... i mentioned how amazing the 90's and early 00's were for CN. who knows you may take back your insult, because i was referring to those shows. and you forgot johnny bravo.

Cartoon Network is the most tolerable of most kid channels, but it still sucks compared to years past. I grew up watching Bugs Bunny and Tom and Jerry on CN back in the 90's, along with Dexter and possibly the best show they had in the 90's, Cow and Chicken. They had some okay shows in the 2000's, but now, the only things I'll watch are Chowder, Flapjack, and Adult Swim (Aqua Teens and Superjail FTW). I HATE the fact that they have live action on a cartoon channel. Bring back Courage you bastards!!
"Did you ever find Bugs Bunny attractive when he put on a dress and played a girl bunny?"

"No..." [laughs, then more emphatically] "No."

"Oh, me neither, man, I was just asking."

El gasp! I knew it. I wasn't a huge fan, but I can't say that I never found amusement in watching the shows.

Hell yeah, Flapjack is awesome. Their drawing style kinda influenced mine (Along with Beavis and Butthead and msome illustrations Tim Burton does)

you can't beat old school cartoon network with the classics like powerpuff girls, Dexter's laboratory and Johnny Bravo.. they were awesome

and also Tom and Jerry.. but I haven't watched cartoon network in a long time..
"You're a twat!"- That dude in morrisons

"You Were a Mistake!" - Mum

God, CN used to be good. Then it started getting crappy and took it off basic cable here. I miss that good quality TV. They don't make 'em like that anymore, save Spongbob

everything yellow tastes like lemon

The cartoon cartoons were all amazing.. now it's just adult swim that's good. chowder is ok but it's too "wtf" sometimes.. and not wtf in a good way, as in the way courage was wtf, but wtf in a bad way.

if that made any sense...

Late 90s CN rocked everybodies socks. I remember the 8 hour EE&E + Powerpuff Girls marathon. Epic win was had. I still have it on tape IIRC.

Spongebob had me locked in when they had Pantera as a musical guest. You know a cartoon is hardcore when PANTERA writes songs for it, lol.

Cartoon Network is better than it was this time last year, but they've still got a long way to go before they approach how good it was in the late 90's. Chowder and Flapjack are great, but don't even get me started on Total Drama Island or Sixteen. Glorified flash animations, them.

And for the record, they did bring back Courage the Cowardly Dog. They showed it every day for about six months, starting around Halloween last year. You guys must have missed the memo...
