Teletoon is the Canadian version of Creator/CartoonNetwork, debuting alongside Creator/TheComedyNetwork and The Space Channel when the cable channel options opened up in the late [[TheNineties Nineties]]. There are two separate channels, one in French and one in English. Teletoon Retro started airing in 2009, providing nostalgic viewers with older cartoons. Teletoon at Night (9:00 PM to 3:00 AM) can be considered the equivalent of Creator/AdultSwim.

The first thing an American viewer will probably notice when looking at the list of their shows would be the almost complete absence of any anime, although both versions have shown ''[[Manga/CardcaptorSakura Cardcaptors]]'', ''{{Bakugan}}'', ''SpiderRiders'', and ''Anime/BattleBDaman'' at some point, with the French network also having broadcasted ''[[Anime/{{Pokemon}} Pokémon]]''[[note]]a Quebec French dub that [[DubNameChange was one of the few French Pokémon media]] [[AvertedTrope to use English Mon and character names!]][[/note]], ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'', ''{{Beyblade}}'' and ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''. Otherwise you can just call the channel "Creator/CartoonNetwork Canada." [[note]]Except that Teletoon has launched a Cartoon Network-branded channel on digital cable.[[/note]] Part of their license also dictates they have to produced some original Canadian content, which has led to fine series like adaptations of ''Literature/{{Redwall}}'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Silverwing}}'' and ''ComicStrip/ForBetterOrForWorse'' as well as original ones like ''WesternAnimation/WhatAboutMimi'' and ''WesternAnimation/AngelaAnaconda''.

While the English and French channels started out with exactly the same programming, over time their schedules started to differ, with the English network getting some unique shows such as ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' and the French network getting dubs of shows otherwise shown on Creator/{{YTV}} and the Comedy Network such as ''TheSimpsons''.

It's nightly broadcasts contain the more "adult" animation such as ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' and others (including little-seen shows such as ''WesternAnimation/{{Undergrads}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/CloneHigh'', which are often shown endlessly in repetition because of nightly broadcasts of these short-lived series), as well as whatever new show Creator/CartoonNetwork comes out with. Expect ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' in the daytime, and various Canadian Content shows as well, especially early on. ''WesternAnimation/TheDatingGuy'' has become a new Canadian series that gets a lot of play.

Teletoon is somewhat notorious for airing live action American movies such as ''Film/TheMatrix''; however, Canadian Content regulations prevent this from leading to NetworkDecay (So far).

It's nightly broadcasts contain the more "adult" animation such as ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' and others (including little-seen or TooGoodToLast shows such as ''WesternAnimation/{{Undergrads}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/CloneHigh'', which are often shown endlessly in repetition because of nightly broadcasts of these short-lived series), as well as whatever new show Creator/CartoonNetwork comes out with.
