Well I'll definitely check out everything new especially uncle grandpa. These days I only watch the DC nation, Regular Show, Adventure Time, and Mystery Inc (which is like the best Scooby show ever). That barely gets me to stay on the channel too long so having some vareity would help. I used to just leave the channel on sometimes because they had way more variety when nothing else was on.
I heard that Teen Titans Go! Is not anything like the original series. I think it's pretty much comedic all the time and the characters are chibi-sized 24-7. Not happy about that. I'll give it a shot, but I don't think I could watch Teen Titans in this format. The original was awesomesauce though.
RIP anime version of Glovehead. Pokemon Adventures will save you.
the only show woth watching anymore is ben 10...and that sucks!

Just a guess, though.
I'm a bit skeptical for some of these... but perhaps Cartoon Network is trying to gain ratings or something based on some of the non-original shows? I heard about the new Teen Titans show from my brother, he's excited about that, I haven't heard about this Lego series (which better not be horrifying to watch), nor about the new Batman series. And something tells me The Tom and Jerry Show isn't going to be a good show--at least if it's the one from Kids WB's time. That one was pretty bad. If it's new, they better have returned Tom and Jerry to their roots. Uncle Grandpa sounds interesting, though.Originally Posted by brysondd24
Since I've been watching Dragons: Riders of Berk (did I mention yet how great a show it is thus far?), I suppose I could add some more to my "watch list".
I stopped watching that network when they replaced the older narrator. Remember that guy? He's only on Boomerang now.
It was around the time shows like Dexter's Lab and PPG had finally converted to the flash style characteristic of the now popular MLP: FIM. Samurai Jack was there too, but it's not really on any particular network. Sad. It had a pretty cool intro.
I watched Boomerang for quite a while after that, but I stopped once their advertisement policy changed to allow adflow over from the Sister Network. Having been off of the original for quite some time, it was a shock to see the new forms of drivel they had stooped to. To me, Cartoon Network was a slightly higher form of cartoon entertainment than Nick, but only slightly - Nick, as some would find familiar, is largely based upon slime and flatulence. Watching ads for Johnny Test proved to me only that the public demanded a lower bar.
TL;DR: I'm really jaded by nostalgia goggles. That's about as far as my opinion of that network and it's primaries will go.
i hate batman to! but the worst thing on cartoon network is that ben 10 ****! really hate it

What's Under YOUR Bed?
This just goes to show that CN has no idea what it's doing. It's rather sad.
The problem here is that both shows just came out of rerun hell and started showing new episodes. And then just two weeks after that they cancel the block and move it to next year. This also screws over a girl who was gonna make her animation debut and go up for an annie award this year for her Princess Amethyst shorts. She can't exactly have them air without the DC Nation Block.
This was all without warning btw they cancelled it just a day before the block aired again.
Not to dredge up an old topic but CN and DXD really have zero continuity when it comes to their licensed cartoon shows. I really shouldn't be surprised, since this has been happening for quite some time. Batman the Brave and the Bold was aired completely out of order, it was put on hiatus, pulled back on the network, I'm not even sure if it finished on CN. I ended up having to catch the second half of the 3rd season on the internet. The same goes for Young Justice and Scooby Doo Mystery Incorporated. Scooby Doo was put on hiatus in mid 2011, it came back in Spring of this year, only to go on another hiatus in June. YJ is in limbo, they had new episodes coming out but they pulled all the new YJ and apparently the GL episodes as well.
I watch Avengers on DXD and they do not follow any order either, even thought there is a clear season long plot, each episode builds on the entire story. Don't even try catching these shows On Demand either, the ones they make available are random and have no order in terms of the story. I was so excited when I heard about the Marvel and DC cartoons coming to TV, but it has been such an utter disappointment.
I think I'm gonna call bullshit on this whole "Well you're just out of the target demographic" spiel. My mom is in her 40's now, my dad is pushing 50, and even they both agree that cartoons on cartoon network and Nickelodeon too were much better during the 90's than they are now. I think part of that reason is you have a lot of crazy Christian soccer mom types pressuring networks to make cartoons as placid and harmless as possible. I was actually a little surprised when a cartoon like adventure time made it on air, considering it's actually a pretty dark cartoon. How often now do you see cartoons like Ahh! Real Monsters! or Are You Afraid of The Dark? I still watch cartoons like Dexters lab and I don't do it because of nostalgia, I do it because it's a damn good cartoon. It's cute, it's funny, it's cleverly put together. The humor can be appreciated by children and adults alike.
This generation has its good cartoons, but I'm sorry. Collectively, it sucks compared to what CN and Nick were producing in the 90's.
I was bored one day, so I decided to watch 2 episodes of Regular Show. It was incredibly stupid. When it wasn't being predictable, it was being gross for no reason other than for shock value. At least a show like Invader Zim or Grim Sdventures of Billy and Mandy used messed up imagery to tell the story better or make it interesting.

See, the thing is, whenever anyone or anything has epitomized to the very top, what else is there that you can do to better yourself? It's almost like a learning curve. You get alot of effective reactions at the start, but after a while when it climaxes, it's hard to be able to see anything go beyond that. And Cartoon Network is exactly at that point.
Whenever anyone has reached that point in which they're grown as much as they can, all they can do from there on out, is just change and adjust to the environment around them that best fits. That's the honest truth, that's all you can do.
When you're at the very top, and you're expected to give something out that's supposed to top what you had previously, it's pretty difficult to be able to come up with something or with anything that could be deemed "original" to be able to keep the viewership at bay.
Lest cartoon network themselves decide to go like how "indie music" went and diverge with their material and start again from the bottom.
It's extremely sad. Cartoon Network knows about these shows, but the younger generation doesn't because these shows (maybe) are on Boomerang, and some of them probably don't have Boomerang, or are too picky about their channels. I can imagine a little six-year-old kid watching this and asking "Mommy, who's that little short red-head kid with the nerd glasses?" The fact I can't find re-run episodes of The Powerpuff Girls, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Ed, Edd, 'n' Eddy, and Grim Adventures anymore (I swear they were on the line-up last year) is really discouraging.
I used to believe in the ultra conservative soccer mom theory myself, but I really don't anymore. Soccer moms did exist back in the "good 'ol days," too. Why would companies be listening to them now when they clearly weren't in the past?
I don't agree with everything CN does, but I don't think it's as awful as people make it out to be. I also think a lot of 90s cartoons are overrated. Sure, I'll give you stuff like Dexter's Laboratory, The Powerpuff Girls, Ed, Edd, n' Eddy, Courage the Cowardly Dog, etc. But Cow and Chicken? Mike, Lu, and Ogg? I Am Weasel? Captain Planet? I don't think so.
I do, however, admit that CN was horrible in 2007-2009. They're a heck of a lot better now than they were then. I don't agree with everything they do (I do think they should get rid of all the live action shows), but CN isn't as awful as it's made out to be.
