[[http://www.myvortexx.com Vortexx]] was a SaturdayMorningCartoon block on Creator/TheCW, that replaced Creator/{{Toonzai}}, and was run by Creator/SabanBrands. The block aimed to feature action-adventure and comedy shows, including ProfessionalWrestling from Wrestling/{{WWE}}, and aired in HD, unlike with Toonzai and other past Creator/FourKidsEntertainment blocks.

The block was launched on August 25, 2012, [[ShortRunner but only lasted two years]]. On September 27, 2014, it was replaced with Litton's all live-action ''One Magnificent Morning'' block. [[EndOfAnAge Vortexx wound up being the last traditional Saturday morning block that didn't focus on educational cartoons]].

!!The block provides examples of:
* AntiClimax: The final broadcast of Vortexx was treated as a normal broadcast with no fanfare or advertisement.
* EndOfAnAge: Though Vortexx wasn't the last program block to air cartoons on Saturday mornings, it was the last traditional block to premiere new and exclusive shows.
* [[LastOfHisKind Last Of Its Kind]] - Well, Toonzai had this trope, and it applied ever more fittingly here. Almost three years later, the baton would be picked up by Sinclair's daily children's block, Creator/{{KidsClick}}, in July 2017.
* LighterAndSofter: As mentioned above, every acquired show is edited down to air under The CW's strict TV-Y7-FV standards.
** ''WWE Saturday Morning Slam'' was lighter fare than Wrestling/{{WWE}}'s usual programming, being forced to abide by TV-G standards instead of WWE's usual TV-PG-V rating. Also, moves aimed at the neck or head are banned. This got a little obvious when Wrestling/RandyOrton had a match, since his finisher, the RKO, specifically targets the neck. Every time he tried it, or his second rope DDT, they would awkwardly cut to the announcers.
*** The only non-Y7 content was the Monster Bash segment hosted by Kane which showcased all of WWE's creepy oddities and monsters.
