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 also served as a testing ground for potential original programing; as he put it, "48 chances to succeed or fail." 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''). Hanna and Joe Barbera themselves got back in the director's chair to create "Hard Luck Duck" and two ''[[WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones Flintstones]]'' shorts, 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.

* SpinOff: Famously, ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'', ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'', ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo'', ''WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken'', and ''WesternAnimation/CourageTheCowardlyDog'' (and, to a lesser extent, ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' and ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsnextDoor'') are all series derived from shorts on this programming block..

* [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Larry and Steve]] by Creator/{{Seth MacFarlane}}. This short and ''The Life of Larry'' ([=MacFarlane=]'s animation school short that is pretty much the first two episodes of ''Family Guy'' bookended with scenes of SethMacFarlane sitting in a leather chair in a study room with a scotch and a cigar) are considered the pilot shorts for ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''.

* CutawayGag: ''Larry and Steve'' had some. Justified in that SethMacFarlane was behind the cartoon and this would later be the hallmark for his more popular work, ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''.
