    I will admit that growing up CN was my least favorite of the tv channels I watched such as Kids' WB, FoxKids/4KidsTv, Nick and Disney Channel but Nick and Disney Channel really lost a lot of steam over the years and I think if I watched more tv than I do now, I would probably put CN ahead of Nick and Disney Channel. Disney Channel repeatedly airs these lame sitcoms to appeal to the pre teen and teen crowd and Nick is doing the same thing. Spongebob has lost a lot of its quality and the only shows that I am interested in are Korra and the new TMNT show which better not disappoint but the 2003 show will be hard to top.

    And what exactly did Kanto do differently? Kanto had just as little plot as the rest of the series.

    Kanto's episodes actually felt original. Maybe because it was the first season and the later seasons would still a lot of the storylines that Kanto has. How many times have we seen the Charmander and Butterfree storylines used again. The emotion and humor actually worked at you know making us feel emotion and laugh. And the episodes were way more entertaining than they are now.

    You grew up, and as a result, they were taken off the air. Simple as that.

    Now stop using nostalgia as an excuse to bring them back.

    As much as I want to let nostalgia blind me, I have to agree with this. Yes, I don't think the new shows are that great, but to a kid that was born in 2009, these are his/her old shows.

    When you really break cartoons down, none of them make sense. Let's take Mickey Mouse, for example. He's a giant mouse wearing pants, shoes, and giant white gloves. He can talk, has a rival, and a girlfriend, and best friends- all of which are animals that can talk and wear clothes just like him. Mickey can drive steam boats, host tv clip shows, and do magical spells. He has appeared in parodies and is a cartoon icon and one of the symbols of Disney.
    Does that sound like something a normal mouse could do?

    Although the quality of Cartoon Network's lineup has certainly diminished, I can still proudly say that Adventure Time is one of my all time favorite cartoons, and Regular Show and Mad are great.

    See, and this is where I disagree. I prefer seeing the Pokemon as characters, not mindless battling devices. Like the Darumaka episode, I doubt we'd see that kind of rubber body display in a typical "What's that Pokemon" battle.That's why I watch the movies, because we get wide pan shots of a forest full of Pokemon being firest Pokemon. Flocks of Pidgey/Taillow/Swablu/etc, fish in the stream, that's what I want to see. I could care less about dorkboy half the time, lets see the living, breathing creations of the Pokemon.

    Well, Cartoon Network started to go downhill beginning around 2001 or 2002 but it got much much worse over the next several years with a lot of classics were cancelled due to either running their course or contracts between the creators of the shows the the execs that run Cartoon Network fell apart to extend the series for different reasons. Like Sym-Bionic Titan for example. The guy who created the show, Genndy Tartakovsky who also created Samurai Jack, Dexter's Lab and the Star Wars: The Clone Wars mini series (Before the CGI version) left Cartoon Network for Sony Pictures Animation because apparently there was not enough toys connected to Sym-Bionic Titan and if there is not enough toys connecting to a cartoon show, it will not be renewed, which it didn't which also made Genndy very pissed off with the CN execs thus him leaving Cartoon Network for Sony. Also, the rights to show anime was fine and all until Toonami's original run ended several years ago with Disney buying the rights to show Naruto as some of you who saw it, it has become much more watered down compared to when it was on Cartoon Network like less violence and suggestive scenes compared to the CN version.

    But the thing is as the viewers grow older, they want to see new stuff so a lot of the older shows sadly gets cancelled which for some get lucky and stay on either Boomerang (Which unless you have satellite or digital cable, you will not get it) or be part of a animation block like Cartoon Planet on Cartoon Network that shows cartoons that are no longer in production like Ed, Edd and Eddy, Powderpuff Girls, Dexter's Lab among others. But then some shows well, they should never came into being in the first place. I mean, from when I saw Cartoon Network hit rock bottom was when they added that "CN Real" bs to try to compete with Disney and Nickelodeon's live action shows, which as you know was a total bust and made a lot of people very angry.

    Well, I am in CN's target audience and, excluding adventure time and pokemon, the shows suck!

    Well Cartoon Network is sometimes playing things smart because shows like Adventure Time and Regular Show are targeted at a certain young age group BUT funny to adults as well for their hidden message humor.

    It is a way to widen their audience for more rating, I mean come on.. im 24 and Im STILL watchin CN, They must be doing Something right.

    Okay as for the classic Cartoon shows, They have Boomerang! I am content with that.
    I am a Teen Titan fan and Justice League fan, but I have not watched a single episode of Young Justice. I think it is all in the promos, they focus on some shows more than others.

    There will always be a reboot of shows they know do well. Ben 10... How many series reboots have occured And now his animation totally changed for the worse.

    If they rebooted that, I'd love to see em reboot PPg or Courage the Cowardly Dog.

    I will say this, GREAT FCKN job on Level Up.
    Do I love that show oh man!
    And best character goes to Dante...
    He is the man,

    So yeah like any other channel, CN has its hits and misses BUT we aren't all the same and that is just my opinion.
