I bet the Cartoon Network executives are going to feel like huge idiots after watching this documentary. Here's my opinion: Cartoon Network would be awesome if it was just 16 hours a day of Tim and Eric, 1 hour of Venture Bros, and 7 hours of Sham-wow infomercials.

Whoever made this video does not understand how television works. I know this because I am a TV executive and a marine.
Thanks for finally friending me on steam, I only had to wait a few weeks, though I guess being a TV exectutive/marine does take up a lot of your time.
I know TV execs are always looking for new things, but as a cartoon fan I'm tired seeing cartoons die before their times. Canceling Flapjack and Chowder is the last straw.
Uh, Superjail is coming back
Well, it not a FORCED return; the creators wanted a season 2, and they got one.
Actually, Chowder was canceled. A look at the creator's blog shows he was very unhappy with CN's decision to end the show.
Chowder is okay but not nearly as inventive and witty as flapjack or Adventure time

I started writing insightful criticisms before I realized this is the POEtv.

My Stepbrother used to be a huge Dragon Ball Z fan.
He wrote Cartoon Network demanding that they show new episodes, since there was something about them always getting halfway through one season and starting over.
He wrote them so much they sent him an email asking him never to contact them again.
He... Turned out alright after that phase believe it or not.

mike lu and og: terrible. cow and chicken: had moments. dexter:re-runned to death. ed edd and eddy: unlikeable characters all around, kinda just ugly really. courage:really peters out. johnny bravo:total piece of shit. toonami; oh, you mean dragonball z. powerpuff girls: actually got a movie and ran for a long time. It's like this guy wanted 1o seasons of Ed, Edd, and Eddy. Also Time Squad really?

I had no clue this was supposed to be complaining until the end.
They should...go back to crappy HB shows?
|sosage - 2010-09-19 |
tldw all the way. Just...I dunno...Boomerang regularly shows all the old CN original shit. If he's super duper upset over programming, I could only recommend this equation: torrents + media center + ps3/360 + router + netflix = get to run your own crappy little channel where you watch whatever the fuck you want when you want.

A summary: CHANGE BAD MANCHILD HATE
The sheer number of reasons why this guy is a gunt is worthy of stars.
|Bort - 2010-09-19 |
So his gripe is that original CN programming (which was overall pretty crappy anyway) is now showing on Boomerang, but he doesn't get Boomerang, and CN needs to change their lineup to accommodate him?
You don't see me bitching that they aired "YuYu Hakusho" only once, and even then it was mostly Saturday mornings at 5:30am. Well, okay, I guess you do now. But I'm not going to make a video about it.

All the stars possible for how serious this guy takes programming switching networks.
Imagine how pathetic and insane someone would have been considered in, say, 1985 for filming a searing indictment of the new WTBS cartoon line-up.

I had no idea what I was in for, then the year "1990" fades into view. The fuck? This is going to necessitate a history lesson?
Not even a history lesson, it's just a time line! I wanted something like Behind the Music: Cartoon Network.
"Without realizing it, Cartoon Network had killed the goose that laid the golden egg, after the sudden cancellation of Toonami. There were a few hit singles like Chowder, Flapjack and Adventure Time but the magic was gone, the audiences grew smaller and sales dried up. As the spotlight faded and the bills increased, Cartoon Network lost everything. The alcoholism and humiliation of the former star taking odd jobs began to take its toll. Soon, Cartoon Network's days were spent signing autographs for spare change, buying cheap booze and sleeping off hangovers in homeless shelters."

Last time I watched Cartoon Network, in 2005 or something, it was really annoying to watch because they ran huge pop-up ads over everything.
I don't like shitty live action, and I like gigantic blocks of old MGM and WB cartoons, but it's hard for me to argue with Venture Bros., Superjail, Adventure Time, and Flapjack. Somebody there is doing something right.

I too wish that Cartoon Network would play only the shows that I approve of. What an interesting and insightful look at how they TOTALLY RUINED ANIMATION FOR ME OMG!!!!
And what's his problem with Canadian Cartoons? The National Film Board is a crown jewel of animated storytelling the world ove-Oh wait, "Total Drama Island" and "6teen"? Yeah, those shows can fuck off thank-you-very-much.
"O Canada" was what I would stay up late for. This brings me great joy:
And this was always my favorite:
Anyone up for a NFB week?
There are a surprisingly large number of people who seem to think that those two shows are the only cartoons Canada has ever produced, which really says a lot about the general intelligence level of the people who complain about shit like this.

This porno music he's got in the background is really working on me...
I think I'm gonna go fuck Cow & Chicken.
|themilkshark - 2010-09-19 |
I loved Cartoon Network growing up, and really liked the system in place under the Hanna Barbera brand, it felt like the cool place for new animation. I even tuned in every Sunday night at 7 (well before the Simpsons) to catch "World Premiere Toons" before they changed the name to Whatacartoons.
Getting full half hour shows with characters from the shorts I saw was exciting, but most of the shows he named aren't very good. Dexter's Lab and Powerpuff are the exception. Johnny Bravo went through so many changes throughout its run and never quite reached the potential seen in the original short.
Sorry dude, but Cartoon Network has better shows now and adult swim is fucking amazing.

It's pronounced "Bar-bear-ah" not "Bar-ber-ah" you twat!
Seriously, though, I cannot believe how seriously people take Cartoon Network of all things
