Teletoon is the Canadian equivalent to Cartoon Network, 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 and Treehouse TV.

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 2007note  to provide nostalgic viewers with older cartoons like The Flintstones, Dexters Laboratory, and Garfield and Friends. Its late night block, Teletoon at Night note , can be considered the Canadian equivalent to [adult swim]. The block featured adult animated series such as Family Guy, Futurama and Canadian-produced shows, such as Undergrads and Clone High, which were often shown endlessly in repetition due to their short runs.

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. 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.

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.

On July 4, 2012, Teletoon launched a Canadian version of Cartoon Network/Adult Swim. In the years since, Teletoon has relied more on original programming and other acquired shows. Beginning in September of 2015, Cartoon Network and Adult Swim's original shows were aired exclusively on the Canadian version. The rest of Teletoon at Night's programming later migrated to Adult Swim in January of 2016; leaving the block to air nothing but movies.

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

Teletoon has created the following series:
