Cartoon Network, Historical Perspective:
Cartoon network was created as an outlet by Turner's cable TV animation. During the end of 1980 Ted Turner's cable-TV company had acquired the MGM film library which included the old record of pre-1948 color Warner Bros. in the year 1990 the Turner's cable TV animation acquired the Hanna-Barbera Productions and also acquired one large library and most of the Ruby-Spears library. Cartoon network also acquired some cartoon programs such as The Jetsons, The Flintstones and many other Hanna-Barbera TV cartoons like Wally Gator. In the beginning many short cartoons were aired for half an hour or one hour long programs. The programs which were aired on those days were like Down with Droopy D which broadcast old Droopy Dog shorts, the Tom and Jerry Show presented the old cat-and-mouse program. The cartoon network went through many phases from the day of its beginning.
Cartoon Network, Modern Scenario:
At present the Cartoon Network shows the old Tom and Jerry program. In the year 2006 the old slogan of cartoon network was changed only as "Cartoon Network - Yes!" At that time it also featured some hit shows. The older look was again changed into some more sophisticated styles including The first style is "Lunchbox of Doom", The second is "VS.", comparing two cartoon characters and the last one was repeat of the CGI City look, using flat, dark colors. At present the Cartoon Network does not have a slogan only a slight changed version of the old theme is still presented.
Cartoon network is entirely dedicated to child entertainment but it also features one adult program titled Adult Swim which is aired late night. This year, the network will turn 15; however, no such prior announcements have been made by the network till present.
