    I sure do! And I remember plenty of old shows on CN that were really good like Johnny Bravo, Scooby Doo, Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi (Embarrassed to admit it but, I like AmiYumi!), Codename: Kids Next Door, PowerPuff Girls, Teen Titans, and tonnes of others!!!!

    Whereas CN now seems to be just as we all already know, Regular Show (One of the ONLY new shows I like), Adventure Time, The "Amazing" World of Gumball and Total Drama (The only other new show I like) and I was just wondering if anyone else on the temp miss the old CN and if there were any shows you liked!


    RIP Cartoon Network 1992-2011

    My Personal Favourites (that I remember)

    I never liked Johnny Bravo or Scooby Doo, and Powerpuff Girls was the most boring fucking thing on there. Kids Next Door was good though, and Courage the Cowardly Dog was great :D Oh and Dexter's Lab was good too, at least most of the time.
    I miss the old Fox Kids (don't know if you ever had that over there, but I preferred their shows over CN, later they renamed to Jetix with lesser shows)

    Yeah! I admit I'm a bit nostalgic! Just can't help it with what was my favorite channel between 2003-2011

    Nostalgia is a well-known killer.

    Yogi Bear; ah, now there's a pretty much forgotten show. They had the Looney Tunes, back when they were good. Tom & Jerry, the Flintstones, (did I say Yogi Bear?), Johnny Bravo. All the girls liked him; he did good Elvis impersonations too. :D I liked the Powerpuff Girls too; they were badass. And I found out recently that in Japan, they were originally known as the Whoop-ass Girls. Obviously this name wasn't suitable for the young American kids who would watch this...

    As the never ending stream of merchandise (up to and including a theatrically released live action film) no doubt proves.

    The 1930's-50's? Yeah, Cartoon Network didn't exist then - hell, television didn't even exist when some of the earlier shorts came out.

    See above.

    I liked The Flintstones when it was called The Honeymooners. Also, when there was a milkman and the phones weren't so gosh darned confusing. They say they're iPhones, but I don't see a dial on 'em anywhere!

    1) That was the name of the original short before Cartoon Network picked it up as a full series
    2) The Dour Stuff Girls is not Japanese

    Check ur facts

    Hmm, a Yogi Bear movie released in 2007 (10). I don't remember it doing too well, though. I honestly thought it was released in '07; that's how long ago it was.

    Well black and white tv came out in the '50s; ugh, all this nostalgia is seriously ruining my brain. It's been so long.

    But you'd think Cartoon Network would've shown these shows on their network. CBS moved on to people programming to compete with NBC and MGM moved on with their movie studio. I do believe this's why Cartoon Network was created: to show all these cartoons that'd been around for, y'know, decades.

    I liked the Honeymooners too. Those phones were awesome too; I wish I could have one.

    I don't think there are more or less cartoons that sucked more or less than years ago, I think nostalgia itself is a painful feeling so I focus on liking all the shit I think is good and shitting on the shit that's shit.

    To me, it's strange to miss any element of the past. The archiving ability of the internet makes it so that any of those things can be instantly revisited. I think the only thing worth missing about the past is whatever sort of lifestyle you might have had back then.

    I miss living in California in the early 2000s.

    I never got Cartoon Network, I don't know if it was available in Canada when I was growing up, but I never got it. But a lot of those shows in the OP are on Netflix.

    Some of my favorite shows growing up that were on Teletoon (probably the only thing closest to Cartoon Network), was Johnny Bravo (netflix), Donkey Kong Country, Duckman, Cow and Chicken (Netflix) and some of the other shows.

    I have actually took advantage of the Internets archiving abilities! (Watching at least a quarter or so of my favorites!) But, at some point, I may actually try buying some of the oldies on DVD or Blu-Ray. EXCEPT that the problem I face here is that a lot of them are American releases from what I see and if you look at my country, you can see I'm not American so, I'll have to probably mod my DVD player if I desperately want a series! I have also noticed that when Cartoon Network releases an oldie on DVD, they seem to make only 2 volumes of the first season available, so yeah! Here I am back on the internet again!

    Assuming that is accurate then chances are "the old Cartoon Network" we will each refer to are two very different concepts. That said their letting Genndy Tartakovsky slip through their fingers was definitely a less than brilliant thing for them.

    Equally though they had some stunning shows there was still also an unfavourable signal to noise ratio back then. I do have to note that American cartoons are a bit like American comedy in that there is some stellar stuff in there but damned if I would tell someone to go in cold and there is also a lot of stuff there that you largely have to be American to get.

    I dont mind CN as it is now.
    But I feel it was better when I was younger, but clearly that's just my nostalgia talking.


    But really, no channel had shit on Fox Kids.
    Fox Kids was boss.
    RIP Fox Kids

    CN was nice before, and it's nice now. Just please get rid of Johnny Testing my patience.

    Actually I did see that. Man that brings back memories. That was a weird episode :P
    Anyway, every Scooby Doo episode other than that was pretty much the same thing. I liked the live action movies a lot though.
    Johnny Bravo was probably my most hated show on CN, every time it came on I was just waiting for it to end so I'd have something to watch. Even Powerpuff Girls is better :P
