Tele Toon
Teletoon is the Canadian version of Cartoon Network, debuting alongside The Comedy Network and The Space Channel when the cable channel options opened up in the late Nineties. There are two separate channels, one in French and one in English. Teletoon Retro started airing in 2009, providing nostalgic viewers with older cartoons. Teletoon at Night (9:00 PM to 3:00 AM) can be considered the equivalent of [adult swim].

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, Spider Riders, and Battle B-Daman at some point, with the French network also having broadcasted Pokémonnote , Digimon, Beyblade and Naruto. Otherwise you can just call the channel "Cartoon Network Canada." note  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 such as The Simpsons.

It's nightly broadcasts contain the more "adult" animation such as Family Guy, Futurama and others (including little-seen shows such as Undergrads and Clone High, which are often shown endlessly in repetition because of nightly broadcasts of these short-lived series), as well as whatever new show Cartoon Network comes out with. Expect Scooby-Doo in the daytime, and various Canadian Content shows as well, especially early on. The Dating Guy has become a new Canadian series that gets a lot of play.

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