    And for you youngsters who don't know what I'm saying, I'm talking about:

    The Flintstones
    Huckleberry Hound
    Fantastic Four (60s)
    Superfriends
    Wally Gator
    Smurfs
    Thundercats
    The Jetsons
    Rocky & Bullwinkle
    Droopy
    Looney Tunes
    Sailor Moon
    Yogi Bear
    Top Cat
    Quick Draw McGraw
    Tom & Jerry
    Scooby Doo
    Wacky Races
    Jabberjaw
    Josie and the Pussycats
    Thundar the Barbarian
    Johnny Bravo
    Dexter's Lab
    Alvin & the Chipmunks
    Captain Planet
    Secret Squirrel
    Dynomutt and the Blue Falcon
    Hong Kong Phooey
    Two Stupid Dogs
    Gumby
    Magilla Gorilla
    Birdman
    The Snorks
    Silverhawks
    Swat Kats
    Underdog

    that's all I can think of, well there's some others I can think of but they weren't very good. Who agrees that CN of the late 90s, even early 00s is better than what children today are being subjected to?

    those poor poor kids :sad:

    That is more of an early '90s list IMO.

    What's the point of this thread, anyway?

    So basically this is the umptee-seventh "Cartoon Network was so much better 10 years ago" thread. Goodness knows we don't have enough of those. :shrug:

    Anyway, a lot of the shows you mentioned are on Boomerang now.

    People, come on. We all know that Cartoon Network has steadily declined in quality over the years. We don't need this information repeated AGAIN.

    Somebody please lock this thread!

    Ugh, it's not only a "Let's bash CN of today" thread, it's also a "Here's a huge list of shows, discuss" thread.

    *Reports thread*

    Does it bother anyone else that at least half of the shows that the thread creator listed were made before 1990?

    Anyways, by now it's common knowledge that Cartoon Network has become a dismal shadow of it's former glory. We certainly don't need this fact reiterated one more time.

    From back in the day, you guys stood up for what CN has done, but most of you guys who enjoyed the CN shows of the 1990s are bashing it now just because some of you don't like their programming or their decline or whatnot. I won't give any browny ponts to CN and their schedule is pretty bad, but it's better than Nick showing Spongebob or Zoey 101 or Toon Disney having Power Rangers or Digimon or any other crap or Disney Channel having teen shows about girls. If they still showed mostly HB or Warner Bros. toons, then CN wouldn't know how to be independent with their own studio made shows, or French or Anime shows while still being in the same company where WB and HB are (Time Warner). If CN would relaunch with the checkerboard logo, you guys will say it'll still take more than that, or if Looney Tunes came back to CN, you guys will still not be pleased enough, or any HB titles came back to CN, you guys will STILL not be pleased enough. And if CN brought back the cityscape or Powerboard, Powerhouse.....whatever, 1998-2004 bumpers, you guys will STILL not be pleased enough. If they take off Gym Partner or Camp Lazlo or Squirrell Boy, and CN make "Good Shows" you guys will be finally satisifed, would you guys? It took CN 13 years to take down classics to Boomerang. Just watch Boomerang and stay in the "nostalgic" zone forever. Meanwhile some of us are getting used to it and going by the flow in life. Most HB shows are on DVD, so is Looney Tunes and old 1990s Animaniacs and Pinky and The Brain. If you liked CN back in the day and religously watched CN's old shows and now hate the new CN, you're being just plain hypocrite.

    QFT. For all of its flaws, CN contains more watchable material than either Nick or Disney, especially for audiences of the general age median on the boards.

    Yes generally speaking shows were better back then, than they are now. I think we all know this.

    That's almost exactly how I've been feeling about this subject. Cartoon Network isn't really as terrible as people put it out to be. They just seems to have lost that uniqueness about them.

    CN has some great shows and more new shows on the way. The biggest thing they could improve is making fun blocks again like Fridays, Super Chunk and others.

    CN is pretty bad. As are the rest of the cartoon channels you're bringing into this discussion (for what reason I do not know, but its irrelevant what CN shows compared to what Nick shows and Disney Channel, who cares).
    All I know is that Cartoon Network of five years ago and beyond was all around watchable.
    Now what's good? My Gym Partner's a Monkey, Team Galaxy (which btw is cancelled), Ben 10, Juniper Lee, Storm Hawks, Naruto, Blood Plus.
    That's just a handful of shows out of all the cartoons that are on CN. I'm referring to a time when just about everything was great

    So what would make you happy? You want CN to go back to the way it was back in the 90's? Not gonna happen. Cable TV is a business, and as such it must progress with the times. The 'old school' toons aren't going to air regularly on CN again as long as Boomerang exists and the acquisitions are starting to come out on DVD. Since CN's target audience is roughly kids 14 and under, if you're having issues with their current lineup, chances are that you've just outgrown the network. Want to return to CN's "good ole days"? Do like Mr. Timmons says and watch Boomerang and buy the DVDs.

    Things go in cycles. 10 years from now, someone will create a thread complaining about CN in 2017 and wishing that Gym Partner, Camp Lazlo, Squirrel Boy and Class of 3000 would come back to the network.

    you must be very insecure if you're begging for this thread to be locked. Is CN your daddy or something? :shrug:

    Ummmm.......oookay.....I wonder why there always has to be a mini-World War III just 'cause somebody's expressin' their opinions about current tv listings. I like both new and old CN, which would include all the Hanna-Barbara cartoons, Teen Titans, Code Lyoko, Pokemon, and the now-just-started-watching-for-me Xiaolin Showdown.

    P.S. about Nick and Disney bein' dissed right now in this thread: Only shows I watch on those are Fairly Odd Parents, Spongebob, Danny Phantom, and Kim Possible.

    It's not a "mini-WW3", but just count the number of "CN today sucks" threads that are on the first page of this folder alone. How many times do we have to hear "Cartoon Network was so much better back in the 90's" before it gets old and tiresome? We get it already: old CN was better than the current CN. But the naked truth is that CN isn't going to go back to the way it was during the 90's, and all of the carping and moaning in the world isn't going to change that; nowadays those shows are either on Boomerang or on DVD now. 90's CN was great, yes, but it's a bygone era now. Time to move on.
