Bye Bye Cartoon Network after 30 long years our favorite channel is shutting down
Warner Bros. Discovery owns the American cable television network Cartoon Network (commonly referred to as CN). It is a division of The Cartoon Network, Inc., which also oversees Boomerang, Cartoonito, Adult Swim, and Toonami’s broadcasting and production operations.
The channel was started by Ted Turner, and it went live on October 1, 1992. It mostly airs animated TV programs, especially for kids, ranging from action to animated humor.
It also broadcasts a wide range of content, including animated comedies and action films. One of the first original series to debut in 1994 was Space Ghost Coast to Coast, with other Cartoon Cartoons original programs like Dexter’s Laboratory, Johnny Bravo, Cow and Chicken, I Am Weasel, The Powerpuff Girls, Ed, Edd n Eddy, and Courage the Cowardly Dog. In 2009, it started broadcasting live-action material, including movies from Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema.
Is Cartoon Network shutting down?
David Zaslav promised to cut $3 billion from the company when he took over as CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery in April. Since then, he has actively worked to achieve this. There are now concerns that the fast cuts could destroy Cartoon Network or perhaps put an end to it.
82 employees from the Warner Bros. TV Group’s scripted, unscripted, and animation divisions were let go on Wednesday, according to Polygon. There will still be 43 unfilled positions at the business, as the company will not fill the positions anymore.
It is now brought under notice that after providing service for 30 years and making our childhood a memorable one, the Cartoon Network channel is shutting down. Cartoons like Tom and Jerry, Looney tunes, and Hanna Barbera were the shows that made our memories so strong that anytime we hear about these names, it brings up a smile on our faces and takes us back to memory lane.
