Turner Broadcasting launched this cable channel on October 1, 1992, after acquiring the extensive Creator/HannaBarbera animation library the year before (and even before this, Turner owned some animation, by way of the 1986 MGM/UA deal and his production of ''WesternAnimation/CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers''). Hanna-Barbera played a pivotal role in the operations of the channel, as aside from the pre-1986 MGM/UA cartoon library being broadcast on the network, a large majority of the network's programming schedule were cartoons produced by the studio. The premiere of ''WesternAnimation/SpaceGhostCoastToCoast'' in 1994, and the ''WesternAnimation/WhatACartoonShow'' a year later, would eventually lead to the creation of the first of a number of original productions at H-B, who formed the division of Cartoon Network Studios to handle the shows. Cartoon Network, Hanna-Barbera and the rest of Turner Broadcasting later merged with Time Warner in 1996, giving it access to more animated material, by way of Creator/WarnerBrothers When Cartoon Network decided to push the back catalog cartoons aside for its original productions, it launched {{Boomerang}}, a satellite and premium cable channel, in April 2000, to serve as a "retirement home" for them. In 2001, with the death of H-B co-founder Bill Hanna, Warner Bros. took over the operations of Hanna-Barbera, while spinning off Cartoon Network Studios into a separate company under the Cartoon Network banner, taking the network's archives with them.

* Series/ToonHeads [[note]]A documentary series with a theme each episode and three cartoons that fit that theme, such as cartoons that show the Stone Age before ''The Flintstones'' did it or Chuck Jones' early, cutesy cartoons. There were two specials that featured rare and controversial animated shorts: "Toon Heads: The Lost Cartoons" and one about WorldWarII cartoons. One centered on 12 Bugs Bunny cartoons that have Bugs fighting a racial caricature as his antagonist was planned as a final episode, but was pulled and shelved.[[/note]]

With regard to variety of interests, the network has been taking a subtle change in demographics as displayed by its recent crop of TV-PG rated shows (often for the [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar suggestive humor that was okay at the TV-Y7 level]], as well as rude language[[note]]mostly "sucks," screwed," "pissed," "blows," and any and all mild insults[[/note]] and violence) starting with Canadian imports ''[[WesternAnimation/{{Sixteen}} 6teen]]'' and the ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'' animated reality shows and continuing with the originals ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' and ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow''. This is quite unusual, considering that programs that go above the TV-Y7 rating were a rarity even during the network’s peak popularity[[note]](the only Cartoon Network shows that had above a TV-Y7 rating were the classic cartoon blocks that were rated TV-G, which means that it's suitable for both adults and children, despite that a lot of classic cartoons have dubious content to them that hasn't been edited out for political correctness)[[/note]], but it seems like that they have started to take note of the growing PeripheryDemographic. As of 2015, the only TV-Y7-rated shows on the network are the action cartoons[[note]]''Ben 10'', ''Anime/TenkaiKnights'', ''Pokemon'', the new Sonic the Hedgehog series ''Sonic Boom'', ''WesternAnimation/TransformersRobotsInDisguise'', and ''Legends of Chima''[[/note]], ''Ninjago: Legends of Spin-Jitsu'', ''Mixels''[[note]]which does air as a special on Cartoon Network, but is mostly an online series available on the channel's website[[/note]], ''Tom and Jerry Tales''[[note]]which is syndicated from The CW's Saturday morning block[[/note]], ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball''[[note]]despite that, in its native UK, the [=DVD=] releases of episodes have been given a PG certificate by the BBFC for all of the things that get it a TV-Y7 rating in America: rude, often dark humor, mild sexual innuendo, action violence, comic slapstick violence, and scenes considered too threatening or scary for sensitive viewers[[/note]], ''WeBareBears''[[note]]which, despite having mildly suggestive content and, if episodes like "Burrito" and the ones depicting the three bears as homeless cubs trying to find a home are indicative of anything, scenes that may be too tear-jerking or upsetting for some viewers, could pass with a TV-G rating[[/note]], and the recent reboot of ''ThePowerpuffGirls''[[note]]probably the only current show that deserves its TV-Y7 rating. Even if the reboot isn't as violent as the original 1998 version, Him [the evil CampGay devil character] is still there, there is slight innuendo and rude humor that would be funny to those aged seven and over, and plenty of kid-level action violence[[/note]]
