Creator: Teletoon

Teletoon is the Canadian equivalent of Cartoon Network note , debuting alongside The Comedy Network and Space, when cable channel options opened up in the late Nineties. Originally owned as a joint venture, As of 2013, it is fully owned by Corus Entertainment, who also own YTV.

Teletoon is a bilingual service, with two separate networks serving the English- and French-speaking populations of Canada. A spin-off channel, Teletoon Retro note  was launched in 2007, providing nostalgic viewers with older cartoons like The Flintstones, Dexter's Laboratory, and Garfield and Friends.

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 Cardcaptors, Bakugan, and Spider Riders at some pointnote , with the French network also having broadcasted Pokémonnote , Digimon, Beyblade and Naruto. Otherwise you can just call the channel "Cartoon Network Canada." Part of their license also dictates they have to produced some original Canadian content, which has led to fine series like adaptations of Redwall, Silverwing and For Better or for Worse as well as original ones like What About Mimi and Angela Anaconda.

On July 4, 2012, Teletoon launched a Cartoon Network-branded channel in a joint venture with its U.S. counterpart on digital cable. Since then, Teletoon has mostly aired original programming like Rocket Monkeys and Camp Lakebottom instead. Many Cartoon Network originals, which were once frequent on Teletoon, now air on that channel; a nice mix of old favorites and newer hits with some lesser known originals and archived Teletoon programming.

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 Robot Chicken and the French network getting dubs of shows otherwise shown on YTV and the Comedy Network such as The Simpsons.

Its late night block, Teletoon at Night note  runs from 9:00 PM to 3:00 AM and can be considered the equivalent of [adult swim]. The block features adult animated series such as Family Guy, Futurama and Canadian-produced shows, such as Undergrads and Clone High, which are often shown endlessly in repetition due to their short runs.

Teletoon is somewhat notorious for airing live action American movies, however, Canadian Content regulations prevent this from leading to Network Decay (So far).
