This Sunday (1st October), Cartoon Network will celebrate its 25th anniversary. The channel first launched in the United States on 1st October 1992 and it was the first 24-hour network that’s purely dedicated to animation. At first, it was just an animation archive channel (but with the largest cartoon library in the world), but by the end of the 1990’s it grew into the animation powerhouse we know to day. Even to this day it’s still expanding worldwide, with new animated (and animation related live action) programming recently made in several countries including the United Kingdom, France, Brazil, Germany, Spain, Denmark, India, South Korea, Australia, Philippines and Mexico, channel launches in several countries and new languages and the further expansion of digital services including live streaming and video on-demand.
Yesterday (28/09/2017), Cartoon Network’s owners – Turner uploaded an amazing animated short video onto YouTube featuring a plethora of the channel’s most recognisable characters over the past 25 years all tightly squeezed into a small box, then they all break free to form Cartoon Network’s 25th anniversary logo.
