Cartoon Network Australia Pranks Viewers On April Fools’ Day With Classic Cartoon Network Original Shows

For April Fools’ Day 2018 (1st April), Cartoon Network Australia (and also its sister Asian version Cartoon Network Southeast Asia) had a blast back to the past, by airing four classic shows from Cartoon Network’s library in a retro four-hour long block. The block aired from 12pm to 4pm (12.30pm to 4pm HKT on Cartoon Network Southeast Asia) and featured episodes of Dexter’s Laboratory, Ed, Edd n Eddy, Codename: Kids Next Door and The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy.

Dexter’s Laboratory follows the life of boy-genius – Dexter. Dexter has a secret laboratory where he conducts experiments and builds machines that no-one can even ever imagine, but unfortunately his sister – Dee Dee always destroys his experiments which leads to mishaps and consequences. Dexter’s Laboratory fully premiered in 1996 after airing two successful pilot episodes which were developed as part of Cartoon Network’s/Hanna-Barbera’s World Premiere Toons/What A Cartoon animated pilots development programme.

Ed, Edd n Eddy is Cartoon Network’s longest running animated series and is about the three titular characters – Ed, Edd n Eddy, Eddy is always coming up with schemes to make money so his friends can buy jawbreakers, Edd (or “Double-D”) is the most intelligent but also the most socially-awkward out of the three and there’s Ed, he’s not very clever, but his good-naturedness and humour certainly makes up for his lack of intellect.

Codename: Kids Next Door is about a secret organisation hidden away in a treehouse headquarters ran by five young friends. Together and through the use of their contraptions, they stop adults from forcing things on them that they don’t particularly like or want to do.

The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy is about two children, one named Billy a dimwitted but carefree boy and the other is his friend Mandy, a cynical, manipulative and rude girl, they befriend the Grim Reaper after beating him at a limbo game to save Billy’s pet hamster, forcing Grim to an eternity of servitude and friendship. Together, the trio get involved in supernatural situations on a daily basis.

The line-up features shows that premiered between 1996 – 2002 and includes the below shows:

Dexter’s Laboratory – Dexter is a boy genius who has a secret laboratory. His intelligence makes him the brains of the family and he is one of the world’s greatest inventors, having created countless weird and amazing machines and experiments. He is always working on new inventions and creations every day, but his sister Dee Dee is always breaking into his lab and destroying his work making for disastrous consequences.

Ed, Edd n Eddy – Like any boys trying to survive their adolescence, Ed, Edd and Eddy are as clueless about girls as everything else. Eddy may not be the brains of the trio, but he’s the “idea guy,” always scheming and dragging his buddies along. Ed, Edd n Eddy go on summertime adventures involving part-time jobs, treehouses and of course, girls. Ed, Edd n Eddy is the longest running Cartoon Network Original series.

Codename: Kids Next Door – A mysterious treehouse hidden from adults is the headquarters for five friends known as Kids Next Door. These 10-year-olds take on adults to get out of going to the dentist or summer camp by using “2×4 Technology.” They build and design elaborate contraptions using anything they can get their hands on: bubble gum, old wood, and spare tires. Each kid has a specialty and works with the team to win silly battles with adults.

The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy – Billy and Mandy are a mismatched pair of youngsters who befriend the Grim Reaper after winning a limbo contest against him. Since the Grim Reaper lost, he has to be their friend, and the three go on adventures together. Between school, family and visitors from the spirit world, Billy and Mandy sometimes need help to clean up the messes they get themselves into, and that’s where Hos Delgado comes in. Hos and the Grim Reaper are not friends, and with Mandy’s bossy nature and Billy’s curious attitude funny escapades ensue.
