CN to me... has lost a lot of appeal to me... there aren't shows I just seem to enjoy... maybe cuz I grew out of this era or maybe because I was so used to watching shows like Ed Edd n Eddy, Codename: Kids Next Door... I even watched a few Code Lyoko episodes and actually enjoyed it. Now these new shows aren't as appealing as the ones back in 2000-2005.
Beware the Dark Wolf once more!

I miss anime of the 00's. Ranma 1/2 was my favourite of all time then. I also remember staying awake at 2 P.M to watch DB/DBZ. Good old times. Now I don't even bother watching "regular show" or "adventure time". I'd rather touch some goblins than to watch that shit. (dis my opinion pls no judge)

Yes I know neither DBZ nor Ranma are from the 00's but they aired on the 00's on Toonami too.


Only 00's kids will remember it.

Liek if u cri evertiem.

Let he who has not a glass ceiling cast the first stone...

I liked the interplay between shows the old CN had, referencing each other in and out of shows to the point they ended up making a freaking MMO out the idea.  Plus you had the DCAU, Toonami, commonly rotating older Hanna-Barera and Looney Toons, Adult Swim with their unique programming that often referenced Hanna-Barbera and PPG themselves, and of course the repeating for years run of Cowboy Bebop, InuYasha, GitS and Fooly Cooly.  To the point I think i might have every detail of the shorter two there memorized and Little Busters often gets stuck in my head.  It's an unfair lead from the old to new; it just can't compare.

When I catch it, new CN has its moments, Adventure Time and Steven Universe being the main cause of those moments, but it just doesn't have the same spirit to it.  When Adult Swim started making fun of their own parent network's decline, I kinda gave up hope for it.

And yeah, Teen Titans Go just feels like a spit in the eye when they had the old one and its following.  It seemed unnecessary to make such a low-brow spin-off of the series that the next generation they'd be targeting wouldn't know and the one before that did would hate, especially when they have a whole D.C. universe to pull from to make something bizarre out of.  I mean, whatever happened to that thing from Lauren Faust that was the same thing but with a different Supergirl than the DCAU one?

Hopefully CN will be smart, and quickly snatch up WB's new Justice League Action show. I have high hopes for it, based solely on the one poster I saw, and the cast involved.  More Kevin Conroy Batman...yes please. There is even a rumor that Mark Hamill will be involved with the show, doing more than just the Joker.

Although maybe JLA would be better off on Boomerang. CN has that nasty habit of quickly canceling anything WB related, even if it has good ratings. My big problem with Boomerang is that Comcast doesn't carry it, so I don't get to see anything aired on the channel. Comcast blows.

For those who haven't seen it yet:

gimme!

Stopping by to let you know that you ain't missing much. Nothing but Garfield, Tom and Jerry and Looney tunes now with Scooby every once in a while.
Not that those are bad cartoons, but they were showing classics like Swat Kats, Teen Tians and Samurai Jack two years ago.

New cartoon network is ok. Not better than the mid 0s and late 90s era.

Also here to say that the new scooby do cartoon isn't that bad. I hate the artstyle but its scripted good.

Adventure Time and Steven Universe are the only 2 stuff CN got good (not even actual DC series can save it... except Young Justice, but was cancelled for nothing), but you can't compare with the 90s era where like 15-20 series were good and awesome

Bumping and continuing off this from something I just learned of because reasons...


Is the show supposed to be absolutely terrible?  It's hard not to believe that it's not intentionally made to be bad.  This isn't the first time they've taken shots at themselves over it.
