    Like This Thread!

    As Cartoon Network entered the new millennium, several changes came:

    -The introduction of the Boomerang programming block
    -Introduction of T.O.M. 2.0 on Toonami
    -Premiere of Dexter's Ego Trip
    -Also, CCF began airing premieres as opposed to just reruns

    Back then I thought that CCF intro, was the best thing ever.

    2000 was also the year when Cartoon Network actually started their animation studio (Hanna-Barbera licensed the CN Studios name in 1994 for original programming, like Dexter's Laboratory and What A Cartoon!).

    And Ego Trip premiered in December of 1999.

    Boomerang (T.V. network) began on April Fools Day.

    Also, Sheep in The Big City premiered, along with the Robot Jones and Billy and Mandy pilots.

    This was the first year I started watching Cartoon Network religiously. Before then it was something I would only watch if nothing was on Disney and/or Nick or if I was at someone else's house.

    Also was 2000 the year CCF started to do character hosts?
    An authentic blend of 23 flavors

    Yes, it was.

    A few things I remember:

    -Toonami Full Cycle
    -The Intruder
    -America's introduction to Gundam (And HOLY CRAP IS THAT UNCUT?!?!)

    A funny bumper from around that time:



    "PANTS IS IMPLIED!"

    Don't forget about the launch of the Boomerang channel (launched on 4/1).

    Also, I forgot if it was 2000 or 2001, but Cartoon Network Asia Pacific switched to a 24-hour channel by that time. Like other feeds, it shared it's airtime with TNT Classic Movies.

    Here's a fun bumper from CN Asia Pacific

    I'm surprised nobody mentioned about the 2000 president election.

    Man, I love that Brak one. Not sure if this is from 2000, but it seems like it would be from around then. It's spoof of late 90's Gap ads. (Just in case you haven't seen what they where spoofing, here's the original commercial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9m_X1Lm7dqo)

    And now here's is CN's parody of it (listen to The Red Guy. Hilarious.):

    This along with other spoofs of ads have aired during the Big Games.
    Stay tuned for updates!

    ^The Big Games! I loved those!

    That's really something that I'd love for them to bring back, but it seems that networks like the stability of new series instead of one-off (or annual) specials, which were more common in the '90s. CN was great at taking nothing but a few bumpers and creating a big event out of nothing.

    Ahhh... probably CN's hottest year.

    Watching the channel back in these days was equivalent to watching the Attitude Era of the WWF and though I didn't watch wrestling back then, I watched plenty of cartoons. The Big Pick Weekend continues to be the highlight of 2000 for me and I remember it fondly (can't remember actually watching it, but the anticipation of the build up and promos was a spectacle in itself). And what do you know, I forgot all about the election that year as well as the promos for them! I agree with whoever said CN could make something fun out of nothing, and the election bumpers were extremely fun.

    If there's any year CN needs to replicate, it's 2000. They need to reinvigorate this flavor and 2012 is the perfect year to do so.

    EDIT: 2005 would also be a good year to take notes from. Three words: BEST. SUMMER. EVER.
