* ''WesternAnimation/AlmostNakedAnimals'', the show premiered on June 13, 2011 along with Sidekick. Unlike the latter show which was removed in October 2011, Cartoon Network kept the show airing reruns even after season one ended. It got even better treatment in 2012, when the show started airing on weekends and airing a marathon every weekend on Boomerang. Eventually after ratings got low it was removed after season three finished airing, but continued to air every weekend on Boomerang.

** The show was so beloved by Cartoon Network that when ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'' and ''WesternAnimation/CampLazlo'' were removed from the block, Almost Naked Animals replaced both of them.



* Cartoon Network Japan loves ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'', ''WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine'', ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' and ''WesternAnimation/BewareTheBatman'', with the latter two being played the most. They also used to love ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends'', but as very few episodes had been dubbed in the language (and in the case of the latter, had all ''[[ComicStrip/USAcres Orson's Farm]]'' segments omitted), this was a major problem, as the shows would cycle through all their episodes once a week.

** As of January 2017, this seems to be averted, as each show has a fair balance, with the only shows repeating more than three times a day being ''Anime/{{Hanakappa}}'' and ''Beware The Batman''.

Added DiffLines:

* During late 2016, one couldn't turn on Cartoon Network every weekend without seeing either ''Film/TheCatInTheHat'' or ''Film/AlvinAndTheChipmunks'' as the movie of the day. It got to the point where these two movies were played over and over for 12 hours on Thanksgiving Day.

* ''WesternAnimation/HiHiPuffyAmiYumi'' got hit with this during its heyday. CN gave it major promotion, marathons, a prime time premiere slot, daily reruns, merchandising, and even a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yw6yFUGBuFU parade float]] for the UsefulNotes/MacysThanksgivingDayParade in 2005 (with Music/PuffyAmiYumi themselves performing!). This was all an attempt to make this show the next ''Powerpuff Girls''. By the third season, however, [[ScrewedByTheNetwork they stopped caring about it]].

* ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyTest'' managed to cross this trope with AmericansHateTingle. ([[CulturalCringe Not that it was that popular back in Canada in the first place]]) Hated by many and loved by nobody except the execs, the series managed to last for 9 years with 6 seasons and retain heavy advertising despite having a very loud {{hatedom}} begging for its cancellation (a hatedom that only ''[[ThisIsGonnaSuck gr]][[SerialEscalation ew]]'' after it replaced ''DC Nation''!). Before the show officially ended in its native Canada, their cries seemed to go unheard - even if the bare minimum of people are watching it, they still make a profit! Since the show ended though, CN would only air it for one hour early in the morning in May, get rid of its slot on weekdays in June and July, and remove it completely by September. CN then brought it back for a ''nearly all day'' Christmas Day marathon that year, presumably to burn off the last remaining episodes, before it was gone for good.

** Nowadays it seems like Boomerang is a place where older ''Creator/CartoonNetwork'' shows AdoredByTheNetwork go to thrive. It's a bunch of ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'', ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'', ''WesternAnimation/TwoStupidDogs'', ''WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken'', with their typical older shows thrown in. And, for inexplicable reasons, ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse''. But ''Looney Tunes'' didn't join them again until around 2011.

** ''Futurama'' would later be the network favorite for Creator/ComedyCentral when they [[UnCancelled renewed the series]]. Not only did it get at least one airing every weekday at 1:30 (Along with the regular airing at 9:00 PM before their precious ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''), but it also got another 26 episode renewal bringing the show's run up to 2013 along with promotion and a nice 10:00 PM slot. They love the show just as much as Adult Swim did.
*** One could almost say they love the show just as much as ''South Park''. Perhaps even ''more'', given how much air time it gets.

* ''WesternAnimation/DragonsRidersOfBerk'', like other shows introduced to the network since 2010, got the sneak-peak hour-long episode which was then re-aired every day for a week, the countdown bug on the screen for the actual premiere, and, again, the currently most-recent episode is re-aired at least once every day for a week until the next episode premieres, to the point that it briefly took over ''WesternAnimation/CartoonPlanet'''s timeslot to air reruns[[note]]For context, the whole reason they brought ''Cartoon Planet'' back in the first place was in preparation for the channel's [[MilestoneCelebration 20th anniversary]] - which, after a month or so, they seemed to completely forget about so they could air the previous week's ''Dragons'' episode ''every'' weekday rather than just four of the five.[[/note]].

* ''Series/IncredibleCrew''. For every three minute commercial block (''especially'' on the sister channel, Boomerang), you could expect at least two ads for that show. [[ScrewedByTheNetwork Naturally, it didn't go over well]].

* Since the first special arrived in 2004, ''WesternAnimation/ScaryGodmother'' and its sequel special ''The Revenge of Jimmy'' are routinely aired on Cartoon Network every October. If Halloween is coming up CN can and will air both specials, though to a modest degree compared to certain other shows on the schedule. It helps that both specials are pretty entertaining [[SoBadItsGood So Bad They're Good]] {{Guilty Pleasure}}s (not unlike the ''Grandma'' special listed above) with voice actors from Creator/TheOceanGroup.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' was especially subject to this in late 2014-early 2015, to the point that, on January 19 of the latter year, reruns of ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' ceased airing on all days but Thursday and Saturday to make room for more ''Gumball'', along with ''Adventure Time'' and ''Regular Show'' in favor of more ''Teen Titans Go'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{Clarence}}''. Though many ''Steven'' fans feared that the show was about to become a victim of [[ScrewedByTheNetwork network screwing]], the outcry created by this move caused CN to start airing ''Steven'' reruns more often starting February 2. However, CN was ''still'' determined to squeeze one more episode of ''Gumball'' in for no apparent reason, so that meant the final ''Gumball'' rerun of the day got ''Adventure Time'''s 7:00 PM slot, moving ''AT'' to 7:30 and ''Regular Show'' to 7:45 (the only time they aired during the day). Even worse, there were no more repeats of new episodes on Sunday evening - and ''Adventure Time'' and ''Regular Show'' are supposed to be the network's flagship shows!

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Supernoobs}}'' has somewhat fallen into this in the US. It has aired for two and a half hours each day, and got a four-hour marathon on New Year's Eve. Though this could be a response to the cancellation of ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyTest'', as it's made by the same people behind said show. [[ScrewedByTheNetwork Not that it stopped it from being overtaken by more]] ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' [[ScrewedByTheNetwork reruns]].

* As of May 2016, the U.S. Cartoon Network shows three hours of ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' each day.

** From 1999 to 2002, you could not go one day without seeing shows like ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'', ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo'', or ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' playing on the network. All of these shows were practically the mascots of the network during that time, to the point where the network launched Cartoon Cartoon Weeknights in 2000, which aired shows from 7:30pm to 8:30pm. In Johnny Bravo's case, it helped him earn the short-lived all-request cartoon series, JBVO. When Cartoon Network finally stopped airing runs of ''Looney Tunes'' in 2004 they were replaced by ''Dexter'' reruns.
