Fondly remembered by the children of The '90s and (to a lesser extent) The 2000s, "Cartoon Cartoons" was a name used by the Cartoon Network to distinguish its original comedy programming from older Animated Series imported from other sources, such as Warner Bros. or Hanna-Barbera. It's generally agreed that the first Cartoon Cartoon was Dexter's Laboratory, although it premiered in 1996, a full year before the brand was introduced (like many of the series below, it originated with a short cartoon produced for Cartoon Network's World Premiere Toons, aka the What A Cartoon! Show).

As time passed, the Cartoon Cartoons increased in number and acquired a unique identity, along with a distinctive musical jingle and a logonote . After a short while, they got their own programming block, Cartoon Cartoon Fridays, which was traditionally "hosted" by one of their characters, such as Bubbles or Eustace.

However, starting in 2003, Cartoon Network began phasing out the brand. The last cartoon to be filed under it was Evil Con Carne. Re-runs of the Cartoon Cartoons aired on The Cartoon Cartoon Show, from September 2005 to June 2008. Ed, Edd n Eddy, the last Cartoon Cartoon standing, ended in 2009, although a Bollywood Johnny Bravo movie gave the era a brief love letter and callback later in 2011. Cartoon Network now refers to its in-house productions as "Cartoon Network Originals".
