Cartoon Network Studios has a tradition to make character piñatas from each show it produces, as well as show artwork which is on display in the corridors of the studio. At the studio, there’s a plaque commemorating the opening of the Cartoon Network Studios building by Joseph Barbera. Joseph Barbera was the co-owner of animation studio – Hanna-Barbera, which later became known as Cartoon Network Studios. Another CN Studios tradition is the graffiti stairwell, this where the crew from each show can leave their mark by drawing their own cartoon characters.

There’s no Rupert The Seal this week, he deserves a well-earned rest.
