Same.

The good stuff was

Dexters Lab, Power Puff Girls, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Ed Edd & Eddy, Cow & Chicken, Kids Next Door, Samurai Jack & anything on Toonami.

It started getting bad with shows like Chowder and a bunch of other stuff I can't remember.

When Fridays ended, and then all the cartoons they previously showed even in reruns were gone and replaced with some incredibly boring stuff in the apocalyptic aftermath before CN Real was when I felt things weren't going to go well.

I remember them spamming weird shows like the Mr. Men Show and Johnny Test constantly like Teen Titans Go, while other shows like Chowder and Star Wars were on specific time slots that were like 1/24th or .50/24th of the hours given, I think. Some shows were decent, but still...

Whenever they started messing with the Toonami time slots is when they started their decline.

Late 90s to mid 2000s was it's peak. 2010s started decent until shows like Teen Titans go and Uncle Grandpa started polluting the time slots. Now it's a complete shit show.

I started watching Cartoon Network somewhere around 2000-2001 and stopped watching it because of the decrease in quality in around 2009 or sth like that.

Yep, with SU end, I don't think there's anything worthy watching in CN anymore, most of those cartoons who ended some time ago are now going to HBO Max to have their specials or sequels.

The period when Tom and Jerry used to be aired. There were a lot of others at that time that were pretty awesome.

The peak was the late 90’s. That was the “golden age”, but good stuff continued to come out through the mid-2000’s. After that it’s more miss than hit, but Adventure Time, Regular Show, Steven’s Universe and We Bare Bears are all noteworthy and relatively recent.

To me Cartoon Netwoork contrast format didn't fit to the DC's animated series, when I was a kid I usually preferred to watch DC in the Warner Bross TV channel, they gave it a darker effect.

The same with FoxKids, despite "Batman:The Animated Series" was at a first glance aired there, I preferred to watch it in Warner Bross.

I don't know if you remember the Animaniacs.

I am fairly certain that in our place we didn't have a warner bros channel or fox kids. I used to watch JLA or Batman Beyond in Toonami or CN channels. Now I just rewatch them online.

@vishop_: Batman Beyond was an insane series! One of the manliest animated series of the 20 century. I watched both Batman Beyond and Spider-Man Unlimited.

Which opening do you prefer? Both futuristic counterparts of Marvel and DC!

Beyond I guess. I havent watched Unlimited but while the avs are particularly cool and noirish when you have different Spideys but I have never thought Spider-Man, in general, has been more hard-hitting towards grimy or gritty/realistic themes.

@vishop_: Oh, an interesting observation, but I think that Stan Lee did the best what he could and he did well in my opinion, always monitoring Spider-Man, such a pity that Disney had to ruin everything while taking advantage over Stan Lee's death, because he took care about Spidy's production in every sense.

*gasp*

No! Chowder was an underrated gem! (Being semi-serious. Love Chowder, but too each their own)

2008 to early 2010s

Great action narrative shows and great comedy episodic shows and even things in between.

The only time CN was like this
