    I kind of knew Cartoon Network would come to this.I guess you can only be an all cartoon channel for so long.It's times like this when I wish my cable provider carried Boomarang. *sigh* Oh well. :(

      I agree with you completely, Tony. All channels which once aired nothing but cartoons are starting to air live-action shows. Nickelodeon, Disney Channel (Even though Disney Channel is basically nothing BUT live-action shows, but I digress) , Disney XD (Formerly Toon Disney). I never knew Cartoon Network would do such a thing, since the name of the network is CARTOON Network. I never thought CN would do this. It's only a matter of time until Cartoon Network changes it's name like Toon Disney did; although I'm not exactly sure CN will change it's name.

    Toonami and other classic cartoons ( Ed, Edd, and Eddy , Dexter's Laboratory , etc.) were the life and soul of Cartoon Network (not CN) and without them, its just an empty vessel that will soon be taken over by sports and reality shows. The end of the cartoon era is near and we are all witnesses to it.

    I grew up watching catroon network like many of you although they have a few good shows now the majority of them are terrible. I don't know what happened to cartoon network, and I can't believe kids today like the crap they show!

    • Anonymous says:

      It's because the little kids don't know how much it sucks. I bet they would rather watch garfield and friends than flapjack. If they were to prefer flapjack, they we should blame cn for ruining their chance to see a real cartoon.

        My 7 year old brother has told me himself that shows like Tom and Jerry are MUCH funnier than Flapjack and Chowder. My brother just watches them now because there's nothing else on. CN should do a test audience with their old shows and new once and get an honest opinion of what their audience actually likes. They SHOULD

    Just what we need. MORE SPORTS! Slamball already failed, so why are they still trying to make this work?! And prepped sounds like a stupid piece of crap. I get enough of school with actual school and homework, and I don't want to have to come home and find "Prepped" on Cartoon Network. For those who don't know, "Prepped" is about a rebellious teenager who wakes up in a mysterious prep school and joins a group to find out what the school's trying to teach them. Yeah, I know, STUPID!

    Anime and good cartoons was what made Cartoon Network unique. You can go to almost any channel and find reality shows, sports, or terrible cartoons. Anime and some of the cartoons were the reason I watched Cartoon Network. Now I no longer watch Cartoon Network and just watch anime English subbed on my laptop. Everyone should just stop watching Cartoon Network to make them have to put the old shows back on.

    There's a reason that Cartoon Network is called Cartoon Network. The cartoons! Making reality tv shows completely defeats the purpose. They need to bring back Toonami, and all the anime we know and love. I don't want my nephews and neices growing up with no imagination. Cartoons bring that out and make the impossble reality, and it's one hell of alot better than Realitly TV!They need to bring back:-Ed, Edd, and Eddy-Code Lyoko (damn disney xd)-NARUTO! (damn disney xd)-Fosters Home For Imaginary Friends- The ORIGINAL Ben 10 (i hate the new one)- Pokemon (original)-Yu-gi-oh! (original)-The Grim Adventures Of Billy And Mandy-Dragon Ball / DBZAnd get rid of the new stuff. It's creepy looking and i'm honestly quite scared of it. I don't like the way this generation is going at all.

      I Completely agree with you. I grow up watching the Cartoon Network, is just sad watching those: annoying,ridiculous and stupid show. I used to watch a lot of Cartoon Network. When they cancelled Toonami and stop broadcasting the Excellent(OLD)Shows.I stop watching cartoon Network and now. I watch more Nickelodeon than Cartoon Network.Hear Me Cartoon Network if you keep this nickelodeon will surpass and to tell you the truth. I don't want that to happend. So you please bring back the old show and Toonami anime is becoming more and more famous by year, by month,by Day, By Hour, By Minute and By second Please Bring them back Aida V. López Age 13

    Cartoon Network, why don't you just get rid of live-action shows already? I will continue to boycott the channel until they give up on live-action shows and make new cartoon shows actually decent.But until then, they are dead to me and millions of former fans. When I become a father ten or more years from now and if this continues, I know that my son and/or daughter will have little oppertunity to watch cartoons, not because of me or my wife strict intention, but because TV by then won't show much cartoons anymore. And that's sad to watch.At least I might be able to make my childern Nintendo fans, Nintendo is someone who still cares about it's fans and is an great example of what a family company should be. Too bad nobody learned in the long-term.

    Cartoon network, you just lost me as a viewer since the crap that you've been airing these past few months. If you bring back these show that I liked and watched I'll watch you again.Here's my list:Pokemon(kanto season and the johto season)Megaman nt warrior(exe and axess and maybe stream and beast. Although it was on toonami jetstream, but still!)Foster's Home for Imaginary FriendsYu-gi-oh!(Original)Dragon Ball ZORIGINAL Ben 10(Don't like the new one)and finally Jusice League(pretty cool show).Bring back these shows that I like(and possibly everyone) or I will continue not to watch your channel, cause I'm 16 and turning 17 in March, but I still want to see these shows again! BRING THEM BACK!

    Dear CN,I was going to type out a really cruel but informative complaint repeating what everyone else has, on how selling your soul to the devil didn't even remotely help you make any bit of a come back. But instead I have somthing else to say (f*ck you). You are not Disney, you can't jump on the live action kid show bandwagon. You need to keep in mind what the network was first built upon, and what shows have actually gotten the most rating (without bribery via cash cash/prize giveaways). The only redemption you have now seem to be in shows like Chowder, Flapjack, TDA (even though I hate that flash animated show), and The clone wars (god bless you tartakovsky). You know what you have to do but you don't do it, do not be afraid of your writers, do not be afraid of keeping things the same. There are always techniques to keep a network looking fresh and new animation studios will always be looking for work.

    P.S. Please don't put really stupid frame by frame, poorly drawn, disgusting, or anything that ends in "fail" in between shows anymore. It is bad filler and no one is entertained by it and are even more compelled to change the channel during commercial breaks even more so. Also overly cheap computer generated faceless and colourless doll things aren't very entertaining either.P.S.S. I hate you for chasing away Craig McKraken.

    I'm highly upset with cartoonnetwork. I use to spend my afternoons watching tv after school just so I could see sailor moon, powerpuff girls, dexter's labratory, johnny bravo, etc. Those are the shows the have high ratings and not crap like chowder and johhny test. I know it's time for changes but you really need your writers to try harder and have some originality that doesn't have random crap. Not only is it cartoonnetwork but nickelodeon as well. Those were my favorite tv stations and now they lost me as a viewer. Sadly, when I have kids they will not be able to enjoy the AWESOME cartoons I have seen.

  43. Anonymous says:

    we all know the cartoon netwrok are failures, retards, and so on. but what you guys may not know is that cartoon network are also hypocrites. the teen titans was an awesome show, and one of cn's biggest shows, the reason for cancelling this series was because thy were trying to focus on their own cartoons ( since teen titans was owned by warner bros.). thats Bull#@$* Cn is now currently using teletoon shows ex: TDI/A and 6teen, this just means that cn are the dumbest people in the broadcasting world. imagine if the teen titans come back, the rating will raise dramatically, the teen titans still have a strong fan base. the lease they can do is show reruns, I mean there were reruns of Courage, EEnE, and Teen Titans but now there aren't, Cn are losing fans, but not enough to change their mind so the only way for these great old show to come back don't watch Cn anymore, and if they do show reruns, watch them and possibly contribute to have many other older show to come back.

  44. FurryDino says:

    Honestly, I think CN is making shows for 10-15 year olds instead of for the younger audiences like it did. I believe instead of bringing back old shows, how about they just make NEW shows? If they just replaced the shows now with the old ones, it would be chaos with the fans of the shows. There's plenty of the old shows to watch on Boomerang. Flapjack, Chowder, and Adventure Time already have solid ratings and are loved by many kids everywhere. If anyone replaced it with some old show that's already had it's time in the spotlight, think about how pissed everyone would be! These shows are very 'present' in this time. I mean, they use the humor used by kids all around the world. The old shows were full of the things we thought were 'funny' back then and wouldn't work today.I do believe that if they took out the real TV shows and replaced it with new cartoons, then CN would actually work by it's real name.

    I used to watch Cartoon Network all the time. But now, after all these stupid, and even embarrassing new shows, I stopped watching them. Toonami was a good program and there was nothing wrong with it. Anime is the best cartoon they have. Anime is my favorite of all time. It is true, people have stopped watching Cartoon Network (or CN) because of the new, idiotic cartoons they call "Watchable". I can't even stand to watch thee new, horrible shows. It is almost embarrassing just for me to even look. "Courage the cowardly dog", "Ed Edd N Eddy", "Dexters Laboratory", "Johnny Bravo" and those other great shows were amazing, until CN decided to cancel them. Now I will say that some of they're shows that are airing now are good. "Flapjack" and "Chowder" are very great shows. The others aren't good. Not in the least bit ok.My conclusion is that if they brought back Toonami and some of the older shows that millions enjoyed, they would get more publicity and possibly more money. That is all I have to say for this argument.

    Bring back TOONAMI it was the only show that made kids watch Cartoon Network in the first place!!!!!!

  49. You know who I am, i says:

    Honestly! 2005-2008 were the best years of my life, y'know? I would come home from school, do my homework, mess around on the computer, but finally, I would plop my butt down and watch Toonami. Naruto was the best show ever! I watched every episode. It was like my drug, my religion. Unlike all this crap now, it has a story line, and people we can relate to. I remember this one particular evening, when I was sleeping over at my friends house, sitting with Becka and Mykaela, staring at the TV screen watching Naruto. I was only 11, maybe. We were discussing the Akatsuki, and how Mykaela and I did our hair like Dei-Dei's, and how we loved 'Leader-Sama' so much. We made a pact that day. We promised that when we grew up, we would get every one of Pein's peircings. Looking back now, those are my favorite memories. Anime. The innocent times, when I would watch Naruto, and Code Lyoko,and practically kill myself if I missed an episode. Those were the days. The days when I would laugh after hearing Mykaela say she would marry Kisame, or punch my dad when he said he would kick Naruto's butt. . .the days when my username was 'Sasuke's1andonly.' I miss those sweet, innocent times. Why did CN have to take them away? I feel like Deidara's hand-mouth has devoured a part of my soul. My heart is empty. . .hollow. I want to go back to those days. Please, CN, please bring back those times. For me, for the world. Your going down a very steep, slippery hill, and your going to be smashing into the bottom all to soon. I hope you can change it all before it's to late, then you'll just be another steriotypical Disney knock-off. Face it. Your ratings have plummeted, and there's no other option. It's an easy desision though. Like choosing between a steaming bowl of ramen at Ichiraku's, or being trapped in Gaara's sand coffin. I for one, would not pick the latter. So please, CN, do yourself a favor, if not us, and bring those memories back. It'll pay off in the long-run, believe it. :)

  52. SSBIG says:

    Cartoon Network.. When saying those two words, laughter and excitement used to come to mind. Now those happy feelings are replaced with anger, hate, sorrow and boredom. CN used to be something I looked forward to everyday after school and summer nights. It was a place where eating dinner became a fun activity, rather than time with the family or surfing through channels. It's what inspired so many drawings, so many stories, and what caused my imagination to become somethign special to me. Now, it is nothing. When I think of CN now I feel like Goku when the evil Frieza killed his best friend Krillin, causing him to become Super Saiyan. I feel like Naruto, loosing his best friend, Sasuke. I feel like Dexter when DeeDee broke one of his new inventions or the Powerpuff girls when the couldn't beat the Giant monster, except I have no giant robot to help me. Cartoons, are nothing now. I hold onto old habits and memories by buying dvds of dbz. When all I used to have to do was tune in for toonami, 6pm. Now, these old memories I have are replaced by chickenshit. Shows of which I cannot remember the names of, all I know is how much anger and sorrow they fill me with. I no longer have an interest in TV… For the one channel that once brought me so much joy, no brings me nothing but boredom. I, Anonymous, hate.. Cartoon Network. The only thing left to loose now is Adult Swim. Which too will soon fade into memory, un-doubtfully. In memory of all our inventions that were broken, all the evil aliens and androids that we annihilated, all the hot chicks that slapped us in the face, all the good times we had with the reaper, all the pranks we played, the monsters we killed, and most importantly.. the good times we shared. We miss you Old Cartoon Network, may you live on in our hearts, and our memories. R.I.P.
