** ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'' is certainly worth a mention. Since its debut in January 1999, it has been a big hit on Cartoon Network, has aired a total of 70 episodes running through 5 and 1/4 seasons and a series-ending movie and, even after being out of production for years, it still airs at least 2 episodes every Monday-Friday. Suffice it to say, it is admired by both viewers and CN.

* As of May 2016, the U.S. Cartoon Network shows three hours of ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' each day. Typically, these marathons have some sort of theme to them, and each has its own title: "Fusions", "Attack from Homeworld", "Stevonnie Forever", etc. [[TropesAreNotBad This isn't at all bad since it has a very large fanbase of mostly teens and adults]].

* Small World was only aired on Sundays and Mondays at 5:00 A.M. on Cartoon Network in the United States, but the south of the border version, or in other words, Cartoon Network in Latin America, adored it, it was on every weekday at 7:00 A.M., and plus, there were even some shows that weren't on the American version of Small World, and they were even given their own individual half hour slots on the channel. For example, ''Literature/{{Franklin}}'' was on weekdays at 9:00 A.M., and weekends at 8:30 A.M.

* ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyTest'' managed to cross this trope with AmericansHateTingle. 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.

* ''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.

* Space Ghost was almost always very prominent in the network's history. Space Ghost, Zorak and '''especially''' Brak seemingly existed as the mascots for the network as a whole from the early 90s into the mid-2000s. In that time, the characters were given 5 separate shows (6 if one counts the revival of Cartoon Planet as it's own thing), and at least 2 specials (''Space Ghost's World Premier Toon-In'', and ''Brak Presents the Brak Show Starring Brak''). ''WesternAnimation/SpaceGhostCoastToCoast'' was the network's original longest runner before Ed Edd n Eddy dethroned it (and even then, a web series managed to push it a bit longer than EENE). Even when their shows were cancelled, Cartoon Network still gave them prominent roles in advertising. Toonami's return in 2012 even coincided with the return of WesternAnimation/CartoonPlanet (with Brak and Zorak returning as hosts). It helps that ''Coast to Coast'' was the show which kicked off the network's own original programming, and that many of the network's more popular blocks (Toonami, [adult swim], most of their Cartoon Cartoons) evolved from spin-offs of that series.

* ''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.

* ''WesternAnimation/Animaniacs'' was treated pretty well during it's run on the channel. It ran for four years, got tons of promos (including some where the Warner siblings went into other shows on the channel) and got marathons at least twice a year.

** As of this writing, CN Asia really adores ''WesternAnimation/OggyAndTheCockroaches''. Which is a major {{facepalm}} because ''Oggy'' is ''untrue'' to the network (it's also airing on Disney Asia '''''and''''' Nickelodeon Asia, and on various country-specific terrestrial networks in the region like NTV7 in Malaysia and TCS Okto in Singapore).

* ''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 ''SU'' 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 ''AT'' and ''RS'' are supposed to be the network's defining shows!! Then again, this makes a little more sense since the new president of Cartoon Network, Christina Miller, is a {{moral guardian|s}} who considers ''AT'' and ''RS'' as too risque for a kids channel[[note]]because they're both gunning for the PeripheryDemographic of adults[[/note]], so she may be trying to cut both shows' timeslots deliberately in favor of running the slightly more kid-friendly ''Gumball'', ''Uncle Grandpa'', ''Teen Titans Go'' and ''Steven Universe'' as of then[[note]]all four shows, especially ''Steven'', notably have {{Periphery Demographic}}s on their own, though ''Go'' is a strictly LoveItOrHateIt affair[[/note]].
