Just a weird observation: As I look over the last 25 years of Cartoon Network, I find it interesting how the network changes every 3 years - that's a long enough period for there to be sufficient turnover in the scheduling, it would appear. In other words, the network kinda re-invents itself every 3 years. 1992 to 1994: Cartoon Network in it's infancy. The focus was entirely on Hanna-Barbera/Looney Tunes material. Only in 1994 did they start to slowly experiment with original material (with Space Ghost: Coast to Coast being the only premiere). 1995-1997: The early experimentation period. Cartoon Network adds "Cartoon Planet" in 1995 and "Dexter's Lab" in 1996, while March 1997 sees the launch of Toonami, and Summer 1997 launches the Powerhouse era. 1998-2000: The first half of the Powerhouse era. The start of "Cartoon Cartoon Fridays", Toonami goes mainstream with "TOM" as the new host, the premiere of several CN originals (Powerpuff Girls, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Ed, Edd, and Eddy, etc). 2001-2003: The second half of the Powerhouse era. Toonami in it's "Golden Age". Dragon Ball Z at the height of it's popularity. Plus Adult Swim premieres, fundamentally changing the channel at night over the next few years. Cartoon Network experiments with original action shows (Samurai Jack, Justice League, Teen Titans, "Star Wars: Clone Wars"). 2004-2006: The City era. The classics of the Powerhouse era start to end. Toonami enters it's "Silver Age". "Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends" is a huge hit. This was the era of "Camp Lazlo", "Life and Times of Juniper Lee" and "Ben 10". Also, the era of "Miguzi". 2007-2009: Summer and Fall 2007, and the Nood era. The dark era of Cartoon Network, with Reality TV shows creeping onto the network, with a lot of the classics being cancelled ("Billy and Mandy", "Codenamed Kids Next Door"). There were a few new shows at first ("Chowder" and "Flapjack") but there was an over-reliance on Johnny Test, and 2009 had no new premieres. Adult Swim completes it's consumption of the late night schedule. 2010-2012: The Cartoon Network Renaissance. Adventure Time, Regular Show, Gumball, and Sym-bionic Titan all premiere. Cartoon Network celebrates it's 20th anniversary in 2012. Toonami is rebooted as an Adult Swim creation towards the end of this era. 2013-2015: The death of the action cartoon genre on Cartoon Network. Thundercats, Green Lantern, Young Justice, and Beware the Batman all fail. "Teen Titans Go" premieres in 2013 and starts to eat up the schedule within a year or two. "Stephen Universe" is another huge success though. Toonami enters it's Renaissance ("Nu-Renaissance?") with "Attack on Titan" and world premieres like "Space Dandy". 2016 to Present: Era of the reboots or restarts (Ben 10, Powerpuff Girls, Dragon Ball Super). Era of continuous "Teen Titans Go" spamming. Toonami is bogged down with lengthy long running Shonen series ("Hunter x Hunter", "DBZ Kai", "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure"). The end of several shows (Regular Show, Clarence, Uncle Grandpa, with Gumball and Adventure Time ending soon). Darkness reigns across the land. (okay, that last part is a bit of an exaggeration). Does this sound about right to anyone else, as far as the different eras? What's your favorite 3 year period of Cartoon Network?
