Summary of Television Network

Cartoon Network (abbreviated CN, corporately known as The Cartoon Network, Inc.) is an American cable television network created by Turner Broadcasting which primarily shows animated programming. The channel was originally launched on October 1, 1992 after Turner purchased the animation studio Hanna-Barbera Productions in 1991. It was originally served as a 24-hour outlet for classic animation properties from the Turner Broadcasting libraries and is mainly youth-oriented, but shares channel space with a late-night adult oriented channel programming block called Adult Swim which was launched on September 2, 2001.

It also broadcasts many shows, ranging from action to animated comedy. Original series started in 1994 with Space Ghost Coast to Coast, along with Cartoon Cartoons original programmings like Dexter's Laboratory, Cow and Chicken, Johnny Bravo, the Powerpuff Girls, Ed, Edd n Eddy and Courage the Cowardly Dog. Since 2009, it has begun airing a small amount of live-action programming, specifically movies from Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema, both of which are also owned by Time Warner. It is currently the third cable channel behind Disney Channel and Nickelodeon. Despite the network's name, Cartoon Network does not carry any preschool programming and currently airs several live-action shows in its lineup.

On September 6, 2010, Cartoon Network aired MAD after the Regular Show series premiere as part of the network.
