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 Creator/{{Boomerang}}, a satellite and digital-tier bonus 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, while Warner Bros. seized Hanna-Barbera's "classic" properties.

[[WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory Many]] [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls of]] [[WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy Cartoon]] [[WesternAnimation/CourageTheCowardlyDog Network's]] [[WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack original]] [[WesternAnimation/{{Ben10}} programming]] [[WesternAnimation/AdventureTime have]] [[WesternAnimation/RegularShow been]] [[WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse critically]] [[WesternAnimation/OverTheGardenWall praised]], with most considering them to be superior to cartoons shown on broadcast networks, especially as more and more broadcast networks are abandoning their animated programming blocks outright. CN has (and still does all the time) [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar pushed the limit on what a kids' channel can show,]] by airing several TV-14–rated animated films (such as the ''ComicBook/{{Hellboy}}'' series and ''[[ComicBook/DCTheNewFrontier Justice League: The New Frontier]]'') and TV-PG series (like [[WesternAnimation/StarWarsCloneWars both Clone]] [[WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars Wars series]]), resulting in a LARGE PeripheryDemographic, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rlo3x0NMs5g even having a bumper featuring an excessive Cluster F-Bomb.]] It is best known among the {{anime}} community for its Creator/{{Toonami}} block, which is known for helping to increase the popularity of [[UsefulNotes/TheJapaneseInvasion Japanese animation in America]].

To satisfy its growing adult demographic, adult animation is showcased during the overnight hours with the Creator/AdultSwim block. [[WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers Once]] [[WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}} again]] [[WesternAnimation/RobotChicken praised]] [[WesternAnimation/MoralOrel for]] [[WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks many of]] [[WesternAnimation/SuperJail its original]] [[WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty programs]] ([[WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce even]] [[WesternAnimation/XavierRenegadeAngel the]] [[WesternAnimation/TwelveOunceMouse weirder]] [[Series/TimAndEricAwesomeShowGreatJob ones]]), Adult Swim is also well-known for bringing more exposure to [[{{Seinen}} mature]] {{anime}} [[Anime/CowboyBebop series]] as well as [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy rescuing]] [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} other]] [[WesternAnimation/HomeMovies shows]] [[UnCanceled from death]] [[WesternAnimation/MissionHill or complete obscurity]].

Around the late-2000s, [[NetworkDecay the network began to incorporate]] [[LiveActionTV live action shows]] as it attempted to compete with other "kids'" channels, such as Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} and the Creator/DisneyChannel. A number of animated originals as well as the Creator/{{Toonami}} and Creator/{{Miguzi}} blocks were cancelled or ended, only to be replaced by a number of live action programs, which came to a head when CN Real, a block of live-action reality shows and scripted series, was created. This block was cancelled shortly after its creation, as low ratings prompted [[RevisitingTheRoots a return to the network's signature "cartoon" programming]].

TheNewTens has seen a renaissance of airing animated originals with the network [[WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars premiering]] [[WesternAnimation/YoungJustice a large number]] [[WesternAnimation/RegularShow of new]] [[WesternAnimation/AdventureTime animated]] [[WesternAnimation/{{Mad}} series to]] [[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold cater to]] [[WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated a variety]] [[WesternAnimation/{{Thundercats 2011}} of interests]], with even more to come. Classics like ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'' and ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' have also found their way back to the schedule after being relegated to Boomerang. After a huge fan campaign following an AprilFoolsDay stunt, Toonami also returned to the schedule, now a Saturday night block on Adult Swim, airing shows that never would have seen the light of day on a weekday afternoon block unless [[{{Bowdlerization}} major editing]] was involved. The decade has also seen the network experiment with new formats, including the acclaimed MiniSeries ''WesternAnimation/OverTheGardenWall'', and have started to become reliant on NewMedia to incubate future shows, with ''WebAnimation/MightyMagiswords'' and ''WesternAnimation/OKKOLetsBeHeroes'' both being launched as interactive content through their CN Anything app.

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]], ''WesternAnimation/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 ''[[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls2016 The Powerpuff Girls]]''[[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. However, it actually DID have a TV-PG rating at first.[[/note]].

In addition, a {{crossover}} MascotFighter called ''VideoGame/CartoonNetworkPunchTimeExplosion'' was released in June 2011 on the UsefulNotes/Nintendo3DS, and an UpdatedRerelease on [=PS3=][=/=]UsefulNotes/{{Wii}}[=/=]UsefulNotes/XBox360 in November of the same year.

!!Programming blocks that are airing or have aired on this network include:

* Creator/AdultSwim [[note]]Cartoon Network’s late night block (considered to be a separate network for ratings purposes) specializing on {{seinen}} {{anime}}, {{shonen|genre}} {{anime}}, and adult animated comedy. However, much like the main network, it too has been undergoing a [[NetworkDecay "live-action instead of animation" slope]], and half of the animated programming currently on the block is syndicated Fox comedies such as ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'', and ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers'', as well as ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' from over on TBS (formerly on Fox).[[/note]]
* Creator/{{Boomerang}} [[note]]Started out as a two hour weekend block in TheNineties before becoming a spin-off channel of its own beginning in the 2000’s.[[/note]]
* Creator/CartoonCartoons [[note]]The branding for Cartoon Network originals in TheNineties.[[/note]]
* Creator/CartoonCartoonFridays [[note]]The Friday night block for CN originals from 1999-2003. A live-action revamp lasted 2003-2007.[[/note]]
* WesternAnimation/CartoonPlanet [[note]]A spin-off of Space Ghost Coast to Coast. A Saturday morning block where Space Ghost, Zorak, and Brak would showcase old cartoons and have small skits inbetween. Revived in 2012 on Fridays showcasing old Cartoon Network originals.[[/note]]
* CN Real [[note]]The end result of the mid-2000s push for live-action programming to compete with the Creator/DisneyChannel and other kid-oriented entertainment channels. The backlash against this block was ''enormous'', not helped at all that all the programming selected were Reality Shows and basically kid-friendly copies of existing ones at that (i.e: ''Dude What Would Happen'' being ''Mythbusters'' for example). Eventually low ratings resulted in its cancellation. To put it into deeper perspective, the original page on this very site for the block turned into a ''massive'' FlameBait and TakeThat magnet, so much so that it eventually got deleted and made a member of the Administrivia/PermanentRedLinkClub. See the discussion [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=1297062937039900100&page=1 Here.]][[/note]]

* Late Night Black And White [[note]]Monochromatic cartoons from the Turner library, including material from Creator/HarmanAndIsing, Creator/MaxAndDaveFleischer, Creator/WalterLantz, and WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes.[[/note]]
* Creator/{{Miguzi}} [[note]]Created to be a lighter-toned successor to Toonami (which took over its former afternoon timeslot while Toonami itself was reconfigured to a Saturday night block) between 2004 to 2007.[[/note]]
* JBVO [[note]]A call-in/request segment hosted by Johnny Bravo. Johnny would also showcase viewer submitted content such as letters and fan art.[[/note]]
* Oh Canada [[note]]Shorts commissioned for the Creator/NationalFilmBoardOfCanada.[[/note]]
* Creator/SaturdayVideoEntertainmentSystem [[note]]A video game-styled action block similar to Toonami which aired Saturday nights during 2003-4.[[/note]]
* Super Chunk [[note]]3 hour marathon block aired Saturday afternoon, replaced with Cartoon Olio from July 7, 2001 until May 25, 2002. The cartoons chosen were usually the original programming shows, but there were times where classic cartoon shorts and half-hour TV shows were picked.[[/note]]
* Creator/{{Toonami}} [[note]]Cartoon Network’s action cartoon- and {{anime}}-oriented block that aired on weekday afternoons and, later, Saturdays, between 1997 and 2008. Creator/AdultSwim briefly revived the block on AprilFoolsDay 2012, and soon announced that Toonami would return on a regular basis beginning in May 26, 2012 as an adult-oriented anime/action cartoon block due to the stunt's positive reception.[[/note]]
* Tickle U [[note]] Their attempt at a pre-school block that aired in 2005-2007. Notable shows included ''Yoko, Jakamoto, Toto'', ''Harry and his Bucket Full of Dinosaurs'', a ''Gerald Mc Boing Boing'' remake and ''Krypto the Superdog'' among others.

There were two specials that featured rare and controversial animated shorts: "Toon Heads: The Lost Cartoons" and one about UsefulNotes/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]]
* Har Har Tharsdays [[note]]A Thursday night block devoted to comedy, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin as its name implies.]] Effectively ended in 2010, as the channel began airing premieres on various days of the week.[[/note]]
* Creator/YouAreHere [[note]]A replacement to Toonami that took Fried Dyanmite's time slot.[[/note]]
* Advertising/CNCity [[note]]A series of mid-2000s bumpers depicting {{crossover}}s between Cartoon Network shows[[/note]]
