* PsychoPoodle: Subverted in ''No Smoking''. Cerberus, a hellhound who is TheDragon and pet of [[{{Satan}} the Red Guy]], has the body and one head of a poodle. However, he shows hardly any malice, and seems like a PunchClockVillain more than anything else.

The '''''What A Cartoon! Show''''' (originally known as '''''World Premiere Toons''''', and later renamed '''''The Cartoon Cartoon Show''''') was an anthology show on Creator/CartoonNetwork running from 1995 to 1997, with a few scattered shorts airing towards the end of TheNineties. Created by then-president of Creator/HannaBarbera Fred Seibert as a throwback to theatrical studio cartoons from UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation, it was described as "48 chances to succeed or fail" at potential original programing. The premiere of the project was on a special hosted by [[WesternAnimation/SpaceGhostCoastToCoast Space Ghost]].

True to Seibert's word, 48 cartoons were produced by a generous handful of creators (mostly Hanna-Barbera staff), each reflecting [[AuthorAppeal the artist's individual style and sensibilities]]. Five of the shorts [''DextersLaboratory'', ''CowAndChicken'', ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo'', ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerPuffGirls'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheChickenFromOuterSpace'' (which became ''WesternAnimation/CourageTheCowardlyDog'')] would go on to be the network's first original shows, or CartoonCartoons. Two wound up being the prototype for a much more popular toon later on (''Larry & Steve'' would serve as one of the inspirations for ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' and ''Kenny and the Chimp'' was retooled into ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor''). Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera themselves got back in the director's chair to create "Hard Luck Duck" and two shorts featuring Dino of ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'', respectively. Others, such as ''Yoink of the Yukon'', ''Pfish & Chip'', ''Yuckie Duck'', and ''Shake & Flick'', were not as successful, but have gained a strong cult following from classic CN fans.
