Canada is linked to Cartoon Network's epic suicideCN has brought 3 1/3 Canadian cartoons into America. Within a few years of their arrival, everybody's complaining from the rooftops. Coincidence? Also, a new CN Real show is coming to Cartoon Network this year. Guess where it's being made?
It's all the fault of Dee Dee from Dexter's Laboratory.Cartoon Network is becoming worse because Dee Dee became aware of our reality, came here, and pressed all the wrong buttons at once, deleting, shredding and burning all the good contracts CN had to continue the good shows. Then she couldn't return home. She is currently disguised as an adult working for Fox News.
Bill O'Reilly: Greta Van Susteren, get out of my laboratory!
Scrappy was behind all this.
Cartoon Network will continue its downward spiral until it is finally dies and is replaced by a revived Toon Disney.
Paradox is responsible for screwing up Cartoon Network.He got tired of the vistas of his own reality (he is immortal, so he's got plenty of time) and decided to start visiting ours. Unfortunately, he caused a screw-up in the process.
Haruhi is the real head of CN.Ever notice how all but one of the CN Real shows are devoted to myths?
stuart snyder is the ultimate trollhe puts live action on a network clearly dedicated to cartoons, and puts new crap on whenever fans want something cancelled instead. PROBLEM, TURNER BROADCASTING?
Stuart Snyder is Bizarro.Putting live-action on Cartoon Network and alienating most of his demographic? Yeah, sounds like the decisions of Bizarro. Somebody call Supes!
"ME NO AM SNYDER!!! CARTOONS ON LIVE-ACTION NETWORK MAKE HUGE FAILURE!!! ME MAKE EVERYTHING WORSE!!! ME NO AM GENIUS!!!"
Stuart Snyder is Judge DoomFirst you take down Cartoon Network, then you take down Toon Town. Besides, only a Toon would come up with a plan that crazy.
"You lack vision, but I see a place where tweens can watch reality TV focused on them. On and off, off and on all day, all night. Soon, where Toon Town once stood will be a string of Flash animated Canadian imports and ripoffs of reality TV. Clones of Survivor, Mythbusters and Ghost Hunters reaching as far as the eye can see. My God, it'll be beautiful."
Stuart Snyder is a demon sent from the gates of Hell to destroy the existence of cartoonsDuh.
CN Real is a Xanatos Gambit to ensure the future success of animation.It's like New Coke. Eventually, CN will revert to an all-cartoon format and gain a major increase of viewers sick of the live-action. Of course, they won't complain if 'Real' becomes a tremendous success. This plan is also being used by Disney and Nickelodeon.
Cartoon Network's shows (or at least the ones featured in the continuity links that had the characters meeting up with one another) are set in the same realityRemember the continuity links where various characters from different shows would meet up with each other and do stuff? The reason they could meet up is because their shows are set in the same worlds.
CN Real's reality show isn't named Destroy Build Destroy - it's Destroy Bill, Destroy!Now with that in mind, what could that mysterious message mean? Is the host using superliminal advertising to control children and have them hunt down Bill, a former Cartoon Network employee who knows too much? Or is "Bill" the name of a genetically engineered living weapon, and the host is ordering Bill to destroy us all (destroy us all! destroy us all! destroy us all!)? By the time we realize the truth, it may be too late...
Decade did it.The Network Decay, He did it.
Cartoon Network bringing back Looney Tunes is a bizarre byproduct of their decay, not a sign of hope.They brought it back to draw attention away from the fact that they've lost their original focus, probably due to the criticism it is receiving for CN Real. Will it last? Better dust off your VCRs and start recording these cartoons while they're still airing.
Cartoon Network's downfall had something to do with the old Tom leaving.Why did you have to take the awesome, Badass-looking, faceless Tom and replace him with the stupid-faced one? ''Why??????????"
The new Scooby-Doo show will bombAnd yet this still isn't going to convince executives that Scooby-Doo is outdated in any way and they'll still think kids are just dying for an updated version.
The higher-ups of CN are in fact in a cartoonEvery episode, one of them tries to change the network because he thinks it will increase ratings. It fails spectacularly every episode, only to try again in the next one.
The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack, Regular Show, and Adventure Time take place on the same world, just different time periodsSimilar to the above, I didn't know where it would go, so I put it here. Flapjack is set in the eighteen-ninteen hundreds equivelent, Regular Show is set in the equivelent of modern times,the talking sea animals carrying over to land, and Adventure Time is the post-Apocolypes of the world.
Cartoon Network is a Parallel Dimension. The Cartoon Network we have, is just another TV Channel, going into the Dork Ages. In their world, such as "Who Framed Roger Rabbit", Cartoon Network is a micronation under Civil War as of now.This plane of existence we live in, is the true reality. However, our actions and events, cause other dimensions to reflect what we do, making "fictional" dimensions. And one tale, a classic tale of a Utopia, falling into disarray and alarm. This rich, diverse history, is what was known as "Cartoon Network". Sometime after the events of Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Toon Town soon fell into disarray. Cartoon Companies, became suspicious of each other, thinking the other would blot them out and take Toon Town for themselves. During the Cold War of Toon Town, The Houses of Disney, Maroon Cartoon Studios, Warner Bros., MGM, and newcomers of Hanna-Barbera, were at the seams of splitting up. One day, a fight broke out, with every faction going all out on each other, and the local police, trying to break it up. The Conflict lasted for months, destroying nearby buildings and studios, until the apparent victor was Disney. The U.S. Government intervened, and allowed the senate to decide Toon Town's fate. Disney and Maroon Cartoons' Toons were allowed to stay, but the other factions must leave forever. During the Exodus, these Animated Factions went their own ways, getting paid and going to their respective homes and studios. However, during the course of the next 30 years, the Cartoon Industry and population started to boom. And during this time, the Three Exiled Factions, WB, MGM, and Hanna-Barbera formed a secret network. They hoped to resolve all conflicts between their companies, and live in peace like they did in Toon Town. The called themselves: "The Cartoon Network." Rumors of their existence, sparingly spread among the crowd, and became an urban legend. Tired of secrecy, one of the well-known members of the Cartoon Network, Bugs Bunny, proposed that they create a land for themselves, a new studio, a new town, and a new life. An almost unanimous vote was decided in 1987, supporting his idea. In 1990, they announced themselves officially as "The Cartoon Network, inc." The following year, they proposed a bill that they should be recognized as a nation, and be granted land. President Bill Clinton had no such problem, and signed the bill, making "The Cartoon Network" one of the newest nations in the world, the only one populated of cartoons. In the following months, development in South West California started to happen. The Cities of Townsville, Endsville, Peach Creek, and a few other towns were created. The Capital, CN City, was built as the hub for entertainment, cartoon politics, and tourism. Finally, on October 1st 1992, The Nation of Cartoon Network became open to the public. Years passed, and a flood of cartoons entered Cartoon Network. Clay People, Puppet Men, CGI-lings, all animated ilk, settled down in CN. In 1997, Toon immigrants from Japan, the Animane became the fastest growing population in CN. The phenomenon was known as "The Toonami". This special race of Toon, was represented by Robot Ambassador, TOM. An agreement between the Animane, and The Nation of Cartoon Network, the Animane were given special priveleges concerning territory and air time on the Cartoon Network Channel. In Toon Town, the tunnel leading to it, was lost, and the dimension was lost to all people. However, Disney created more cartoons to hide the fact that they lost the originals somehow. It remains an Enigma on why Toon Town disappeared. During the course before the 2000's, Toons lived in peace, much akin to what was Toon Town. Here, Cartoons would appear and retire here. The world media called The Cartoon Network, Toon Town's Spiritual Successor. Humans were allowed to live in CN, but were not allowed to have shows. Meanwhile, there were "other friends" who wanted this land for themselves, having their own evil ideas and intentions. Humans, Canaidian Animation Studios, and other Toons wanted that land to be theirs, envious of their success. In 1999, Canadian expatriates, The House of Antonucci, immigrated to CN, and got their own show. The three most famous of them became known as Ed, Edd n Eddy. They however, were unaware of Canada's planned invasion, that would come years later. The same year, the Eds unwittingly find a secret unnused entrance to Toon Town, they lose its location. Their story is adapted in the episode: "One + One = Ed". In the late 1990's the Hanna-Barberrans, MGM, and WB toons considered expansion. On April 1st 2000, Bugs Bunny announced that he, and several cartoons, would depart for a territory where they could rest, free from present cares. Dexter, boy genius, built a pocket-dimension, located in the City of Sherman, and the old Toons were sent there. CN created a subsidiary channel, known as Boomerang, showing re-runs of the original CN factions. New leadership, in CN, was determined by who would host Friday nights that night. It frequently alternated between leaders every week, and this soon became law. In 2001, Samurai Jack, appeared on the scene. What he believed was a portal to his own time, was actually an experimental rift that Dexter was created. Originally, Deter was trying to find the tunnel to Toon Town again, he was instead, given Samurai Jack. The denizens of CN were puzzled, and perplexed about who he was. His history, was kept secret, and given cover as the Cartoon: Samurai Jack. Samurai Jack, was then adopted into the "Tartakovsky House". Animated Actor in their universe, a Samurai in his own, Jack treated CN as a sanctuary and resting place. Building a large fan-base, given a high-budget, his show became the most famous out of all of CN's line-up. Given a Dimension Travelling Device in his slippers, he would traverse from his Universe, to CN's universe, acting/resting in one, then fighting his way back home in another. In the meantime, Dexter tries his hardest to find a way to travel back to the past, hoping to help his friend Jack out one day. In September 2nd 2001, laws concerning the late night hours were loosened after several adult-oriented cartoons protested for rights. This led to several controversies, including Garfield's sex-scandal, creating his CGI-son, CGI-Garfield. CGI Garfield was despised for his existence by everyone, and ran away from CN. He would mature, and return to CN in 2009. Crimes and the late-night laws also forced The Justice League to take up a Forward Operating Outpost in that region, if they were called to help out fight crime. In 2003, a detachment of Clone Troopers, set up an Outpost in CN, trying to detect any Separatist activites. They make special relationships with the house of Tartakovsky. In that same year, laws changed. The old leadership system caused turmoil in the micro-nation, causing it to become gimmicky and ineffective. So, they gave leadership to The Mayor of Townsville. Consequently, Friday nights were given a face-lift. Humans, had a change in roles now. They were given the right to star as hosts, but not in an actual show. In 2004, Samurai Jack, one of CN's biggest stars, went missing. After several weeks, his show was cancelled, only showing re-runs and the episodes the Studio could film. This disappearance caused fear and panic to happen in CN, but, the Government and studio must go on. To compensate, they addded Adverts of tourism they filmed before Jack disappeared. 2005, The Clone Wars ends, and the Clone Troopers depart later in the year. Canadian immigrant, Atomic Betty, arrived in CN. Little did anyone know, she was a spy for the Canadian Empire of Animation, an illusive corporation of Canadian Toons wanting to take the country of CN. For about a year, she had her run on CN, and went back to Canada. Then, she divulged her information, containing CN's weakpoints, points of interests, and other points of tactical data. The year of 2007 was the fulcrum, of CN's history. After several trials and errors, a human boy named Jimmy, got his own movie and show on CN through a loophole in their constitution. However, this started a debacle in CN's capital, wondering how this happened, and divided CN, into factions, mimicking their predcessors in Toon Town years ago. Stuart Snyder, a prominent executive representing the humans, slowly put himself into power. Soon, in 2008, Jimmy's show, Out of Jimmy's Head, received very poor ratings got cancelled, and subsequently was exiled from the land of CN. Unbeknowest to them, Jimmy, was the vanguard of an impending invasion, foreshadowed in CN's "Invasion" saga in our world. In July of 2008, The Noods, were spawned from the minds at a toy company called Munny. The Noods were comissioned by Stuart Snyder, a now powerful executve of CN, to serve as idiotic, stupid, and rather manipulatable servants. To the Toons surprise, they were found to be a very amusing source of slapstick, and used them in their bumpers. Fearing that an impending doom was coming upon them, the Animane were besides themselves. TOM, the Robot ambassador to the Animane, had their rights disavowed by Snyder whom declared that he and his kind were going to depart from CN, and return to Japan. September 20th 2008, "The Day of Tears", after 11 long years of occupation, the Animane finally left CN. This left CN, splintered, broken, and battered, leaving an attack imminent. Turning to Canada, the Toons asked for their shows to fill the gap Animane left behind. Meanwhile in Canada, scientists get to work on reproducing "The Dip" based on blueprints left behind by Judge Doom. The Canadian Animation Empire, contacted Stuart, and agreed to join in on their venture to take CN. In early 2009, Snyder closed down several establishments and got rid of many shows. He even closed down an adoption center for Imaginary Friends. And That's Terrible. In June of 2009, the dreaded "Invasion of CN" had begun. 6:00 AM Eastern Time, an allied army of Humans, Canadian Toons, and CGI-lings marched on to the Capital of CN. The Commanders, that CN was already weak, and vulnerable, and destroyed many key buildings and landmarks, killing many Toons in the process. The Noods, armed with Dip-Throwers, turned on their masters and routed the Toon population. Those who opposed the attack, were either destroyed by the dip, or enslaved by the Canadian Empire. Others, joined the new form of government, betraying their counrty. With no opposition against them, Stuart Snyder, became self-appointed ruler of Cartoon Network. The last of the "Cartoon Cartoons" were the Eds, untouched because of their Canadian origins. During the reign of Stuart Snyder, an apartheid system of Humans and Toons were created, similar to that of The Disney Channel and Nickelodeon. The Humans, were to be the superior, better race, compared to the majority of Toons, were treated as infidels. Stuart then invented a line up of new shows, with actual Human people, and called the block: "CN Real". He planned to reinvent CN, despite angered pleas from the world. The original CN, HB, MGM, and WB Toons were sent to the "Boomerang World", to serve as technical operators and engineers. If they did not comply to work or objected, they would be executed by drowning via Dip, or spend life in permanent stasis, awake and alive, living a nightmare for the ends of their days. Day in and Day out, Toons would work and work, and slept. They would repeat this process all over again. However, the Toons worked too hard for their world to be taken away like that. So, a small group of Guerilla Fighters, banded together and went back to CN. The Ed's, were contacted by The CN Underground Movement (CNUM) , who kept tabs on the new CN govenment. When the Ed's lease expired in November 2009, they decided to stand up for themselves, and fight for what the land they loved. Soon, the Civil War for Cartoon Network began. Meanwhile, Dexter and Blossom, tired of oppression in the Boomerang World, make their own world in secret. The two created their own pocket dimension, and ran away, leaving no way or trace to follow them. In their world, the two became their own Adam and Eve, and created a Utopian society. Epochs later, the Galalunian Empire would be born. Throughout 2010, CN was attacked continously during the year. The CN Underground movement supplied and organized attacks on CN's studios and businesses. During the new era, several immigrant Toons either fought with, or against each other frequently. Some of the new Toons, acted as covert agents for the CNU Movement such as: Finn and Jake, and the Mystery Incorporated Gang. September 2010, a strange new Robot comes into town. When the Genral Modula and the Mutraddi invade Galaluna, the characters of Sym-Bionic Titan appear on the scene. Intrigued by them, the movement took them in, and tested their company's origin. To their surprise, they have descended from the House of Tartakovsky, and they are consripted by the CNU Movement almost immediately. They posed as new Animated Actors for Sym-Bionic Titan, and acted as one of CNU's most trusted spies. The next month, the Myserty Incorporated Gang find out where Samurai Jack is being kept, but enigmatically disappear on the 25th of October. The characters of Adventure Time, knowing better, decide not to fall into the same pitfall as the Mystery Gang. April 2011, Sym-Bionic Titan's identity as covert spies has been found out, but is kept hidden from the public. Stuart Snyder hires a trio of mercenaries for hire, known as "The Problem Solverz" to take down Titan, and in exchange, give them a slot on the CN Channel. On the 9th of April, a battle took place in CN City, in a fight between Sym Bionic Titan and the CNUM, versus the CN government and The Problem Solverz. Ultimately, Sym-Bionic Titan is defeated, and CN Reigns supreme, leaving a deep wrinkle in the CNU Movement's plans, retreating in defeat. As of now, CN and The CNUM are in constant war. Many Toons have been destoryed, careers taken, and friends lost. It is rumored, in May 2011, The Looney Tunes is returning to CN as neutral. This war, this conflict, will not end, until the day when the remnants of Stuart's reign leaves CN, and the day Samurai Jack returns or another hero to finish off evil, and the Toons are restored in the natural order. Until then, the Civil War of Cartoon Network rages on. Or, at least we can do something about it.
The Hoverboard won't come in 2015, rather it be by 2025Now, before I like to begin, the title for this sounds like it belongs in the Back to the Future WMG, but just read this little thought and you'll see what I mean. OOO Like some of the Guesses above, this one deals with a timeline, but this explores more of the shows. Now to start way in the past, (estimating 1100s-1400s), the famous samurai we know as Jack and the shape-shifting master of darkness Aku came into the universe. It was some time that the two will eventually clash and Aku sent the samurai into the future, which will allow Aku to take over the world and set the stage for the main plot of Samurai Jack. However, what about the other shows existing if Aku is control of the world? (Please note I'm exlcuding Snyder from this) Jump cut to the Victorian, or should we say Neo-Victorian, age of the 1800s and where the world was being explored for the mythical Candied Island. This is also the time where a budding adventurer Flapjack sail the oceans with his adopted mother and Captain K'nuckles in search of this island. However, they were eventually thrown out of their home they call Stormalong Harbor and were forced to sail the seas for possibly eternity. Flash forward by a couple of decades to the 1920s and we now see the start of we call the Golden Age of Cartoons, which brought us the House of Mouse, Warner Bros. shorts and other studios. Eventually these studios would be competitng against each other before settling in Toon Town (read the above Guess about the Civil War), and in the 1940s we got that one small incident involving Roger Rabbit and all of Toon Town, where Judge Doom planned upon bringing the end of a revolution. Gladly, the Toons are safe and continue on to live another day. Now jump up to 1990s-2010s, where we see more of a modern setting for the cartoons. Obviously there have been several new shows that have been entertaining people during the years, with some being good and others bad, but the focus here is about time. Before this period, we got a certain explosion that created the man we know as Professor Paradox and he started his life as a time-travelling explorer, walking to different times and alternative realities to see if he can get them on the right track without intervening too much or starting another reality by mistake. And now our attention shifts over to a show in the 2000 era... To be precise, this show does have some connections to the future of 2025, where one Ben Tennyson and his cousin visited briefly to meet Ben's older counterpart, where it was seen that there are hoverboards a plenty... but it was hard to tell if they were made by Mattell. Besides from that, this is where we get an connection. Ben and Gwen are ten years old when the original series was on, meaning it was about 2004 when the show came on. Then jump five years later and we have the two at age 15. One year later we have Ultimate Alien, which the heros are one year older. Now, if 2010 is the show's current year and if we don't see the hoverboard by 2015, then there is a chance of the hoverboard being made a year after and we will see more of what the future will look like in 2025 (at this time, Ben will be 31 meaning he must have met his wife and had Ken when he was 21) And now to go back to the Aku problem. At this point, if Aku were to get his way, these shows should or should not be in existence. If this is true, then Jack defeated Aku in the future and got a portal to go back in time (whether or not this portal was created by Paradox or Aku or another source) and defeated Aku in the past that will set the course for these shows to exist. If this were to be true, the future that was ruled by Aku will eventually lead to World War III (or the Great Mushroom War) that will eventually have a giant meteor ripped a chunk of the earth out and get us the Land of Ooo and its crapsack world. OOO OK, I know this isn't the perfect guess, but it's what I got at the moment. Of course I am taking some shots in the dark about certain events (I don't know if the Samurai Jack will give a true ending to the series), but I think I did hit some right on the head, even if some of the events have been mentioned elsewhere. Then again, I am using this Guess of mine for a fan-fiction I am working on (with the main focus being on the Samurai Jack parts), so I figure I may want to share this here before I post this elsewhere.
Cartoon Network has turned into a perfect, unwavering allegory for Dr. Seuss's The Lorax.Read every single bit of this and you'll discover striking similarities between the book and network: There was once a lush forest of Truffula trees (Cartoon Network), adored by all the animals (old cartoons enjoyed by viewers, plus some creative minds), none more fond of it than the Lorax (Betty Cohen). However, a mysterious green (as in greedy) stranger named the Once-ler (Stuart Snyder) arrived one day, looking to take in the sights (enjoy the network's notoriety for himself): There are Bar-ba-Loots (resembling bears) that frolic about and eat fruit from the trees (anime-hungry viewers- the fruit is Toonami), Swomee Swans that fly through the air and sing as they go (the voices of creative staff at Cartoon Network), and Humming Fish that go swimming about in the ponds and humming as they swim (the animators themselves). However, the Once-ler only took interest to the Truffula trees (ignored everything about the network except its potential to make him powerful and esteemed). He immediately grew enamored by the forest and its Truffula trees, and decided to take a sample of the trees (examined how well it fared with kids) and learned he could use it to knit "Thneed", an odd-looking but versatile garment that he insists "everyone needs." (live action). He cut down a single tree to accomplish this task (created Out of Jimmy's Head and crippled a very tiny fraction of the channel), then set up shop (joined up with CN as president, after Samples had left). From the stump of this fallen tree, the Lorax appeared and tried to protect these trees (Cohen), saying they could not speak for themselves (good ideas for genuine toons are voiceless thoughts until spoken by the creative staff):
All the shows in Cartoon Network occur in one single universe.The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy/Codename: Kids Next Door hinted at this with the cameo of The Powerpuff Girls and Ed, Edd n Eddy. Plus it would be awesome. Oh, and the exception would be anything connected to Warner Bros., since Looney Tunes would be stretching it too much.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Cartoon Network, there will be a Massive Multiplayer Crossover / Crisis Crossover
Karma for DC NationgateAfter putting Green Lantern: The Animated Series and Young Justice on hiatus shortly after returning, Disney aquired Lucasfilm, meaning that Star Wars: The Clone Wars, one of the network's highest-rated shows, will most likely leave CN. Laser-Guided Karma, much?
They're will eventually be a Cartoon Network/Nicktoons crossover movie some time in the near future
The Network Decay was caused by a war with NickelodeonNickelodeon caused Cartoon Network to decay, gaining the upper hand. However, refusing to admit defeat to a bunch of crappy and repetitive teen sitcoms (no offense, I'm just trying to be funny) Cartoon Network was able to bounce back with MAD, Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, Cartoon Network: Punch Time Explosion, Thundercats2011, and Young Justice. Not back to it's former glory, mind you, but better than it was. Once they'd recovered enough, they were even able to revive Toonami. Oh, and they both beat Disney Channel a long time ago.
A Cartoon Network cinematic universe is in productionThey've already made Ben 10 Race Against Time and Ben 10 Alien Swarm. Seems like Wolverine Publicity, until you check CN's AndTheFandomRejoiced page, and apparently there's a Samurai Jack movie in the making. What else do they have in mind? Dexter's Laboratory? The Powerpuff Girls? Dare I ask...Codename: Kids Next Door? (If it happens, this trooper hopes Numbuh 1, Dexter, and Blossom become a Power Trio)
Cartoon Network's "Invaded" that happened in May of 2007 was actually a foreshadowing for what was going to happen to the networkThe shows that were aired were usually considered the top five running shows for that time. It also happened after the Aqua Teen Hunger Force Bomb Scare. It was also considered one of the last episodes of Ed Eddn Eddy (There would be one more "two 15 minute episodes" and the Big Picture Show) and The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy. The other shows would show new episodes sparingly, but two of them ended a year later (Camp Lazlo and My Gym Partner's a Monkey ended in 2008) while Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends lasted until 2009. Anyways, it basically called for Cartoon Network to "invade" those shows with a new slot.
Cartoon Network and DC Comics have a terrible case of sibling rivalryCartoon Network keeps screwing over DC shows because it's tired of its older brother getting all boy demographics with Batman.
