==History==
 
{{Dablink|For more information prior to the UK and Ireland version of Cartoon Network (pre October 1999), see [[Cartoon Network (Europe)]]}}
 
 
===Pre-launch===
 
On 1 October 1992, the original version of Cartoon Network was launched at [[CNN Center]], [[Atlanta]], USA. The channel was created in response of Turner Entertainment acquiring [[Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer|MGM]]'s Cartoon and Film library in 1986 and the acquisition of the [[Hanna-Barbera]] animation studio and cartoon library in 1991. As a result of Turner purchasing MGM's Cartoon and Film library, Warner Bros pre-1948 content was also acquired, which included [[Looney Tunes]] and [[Merrie Melodies]].<ref>{{cite web|title=Why Ted Turner is Cool|url=http://www.drfilm.net/blog/?p=94|publisher=Dr Film|accessdate=3 September 2011}}</ref> At launch in the United States, Cartoon Network had a 8,500 hour cartoon library,<ref>{{cite web|title=Cartoon Network off to a slow start|url=http://news.google.com/newspapers?id=229iAAAAIBAJ&sjid=3nYNAAAAIBAJ&pg=1307,57411&dq=cartoon+network&hl=en|publisher=Observer-Reporter|accessdate=3 September 2011}}</ref> and it became the first channel dedicated to cartoons. Six months after the launch, Cartoon Network expanded into foreign markets by launching a [[Cartoon Network (Latin America)|Latin American]] version of the channel dubbed in both Spanish, Portuguese and English. Cartoon Network's large animation library was in high demand in Western Europe<ref name="TurnerEuro" /> and as a response to consumer demand, Cartoon Network Europe was launched on 17 September 1993, broadcasting from London. It launched only less than 12 months after the original American version and only 16 days after its main children's television rival, [[Nickelodeon (UK and Ireland)|Nickelodeon UK]]. {{citation needed|date = January 2014}}

[[File:Cartoon Network 1992 logo.svg|200px|thumb|The original Cartoon Network logo, used from 17 September 1993 to 11 April 2005. The logo is still used today on some occasions.]]
 
The channel was originally twinned with movie channel [[Turner Classic Movies (UK & Ireland)#TNT UK|TNT]] and ran from 5am until 7pm,<ref>{{cite news|last=Rosenbaum|first=Martin|title=Media: American invaders are targeting your kids: Children's rights and non-stop cartoons will do battle as US cable channels vie for British viewers|url=http://www.independent.co.uk/news/media/media-american-invaders-are-targeting-your-kids-childrens-rights-and-nonstop-cartoons-will-do-battle-as-us-cable-channels-vie-for-british-viewers-martin-rosenbaum-reports-1487639.html|work=The Independent|accessdate=5 July 2011|location=London|date=28 July 1993}}</ref> with TNT taking over from 7pm to 5am. Sunday afternoons saw "Super Chunk", which showed back to back episodes of one show for two hours between 1pm and 3pm.<ref name="SuperChunk24hour">{{cite web|title=Cartoon Network 1998|url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lBbUpvjy6lA|publisher=Turner Broadcasting System Europe|accessdate=5 July 2011}}</ref> Another feature was "The Longest Day", in which Cartoon Network ran for an extra four hours until 11pm on 21 June, every year beginning in 1994.<ref>{{cite web|title=6-22-1996 "It's 10:50 and Cartoon Network is still on.

The first theme was the '''Checkerboard''' theme, which showed graphics from its US counterpart and lasted until 1999. {{citation needed|date = January 2014}} Also unlike its rival Nickelodeon, which was part of [[Sky Multichannels]], Cartoon Network was [[free-to-air]] across Europe. {{citation needed|dtae=January 2014|date=January 2014}}
 
 
===Introduction of 24 hour service===
 
On 2 September 1996, Cartoon Network began running for an extra two hours until 9pm, and on 16 December 1996,<ref name="TurnerTimeline">{{cite web|title=Timeline: Turner Broadcasting System Europe LTD|url=http://www.europe.turnerinfo.com/CARTOONITO/UK/timeline/index.jsp|publisher=Turner Broadcasting System Europe|accessdate=27 June 2011}}</ref> it became a 24-hour channel, as did TNT on the [[Astra 1G]] satellite. However, a timesharing version of the channel called TNT & Cartoon Network continued to appear on some providers. {{Citation needed|date=January 2014}} Two years later on 19 December 1998, Cartoon Network launched as part of the [[Sky (UK and Ireland)|Sky Digital]] satellite platform on the [[Astra 2A]] satellite.<ref name="TurnerTimeline" /> Also, in February 1997, Dutch cable provider A2000/KTA added the 24-hour Cartoon Network and TNT channels to its programming lineup.<ref name="TurnerTimeline"/>
 
 
From 15 November 1998, Cartoon Network was part of [[ITV Digital]]'s channel package, airing 24 hours a day until the service collapsed on 1 May 2002.<ref name="TurnerTimeline" /><ref>{{cite news|title=Race to find digital broadcaster|url=http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/1961209.stm|publisher=BBC|accessdate=5 July 2011|date=1 May 2002}}</ref>
 
 
===Separation from Pan-European version===
 
On 15 October 1999, Cartoon Network UK officially split off from the pan-European version, this was when the shared transponder analogue feed on Astra 1C became scrambled with [[VideoCrypt]] and when the short-lived UK and Ireland only version of TNT launched. Prior to this date, Cartoon Network Europe moved to [[Astra 5A|Sirius II]] to serve Eastern Europe in August 1999 and Cartoon Network France and Spain launched at the same time on 23 August 1999, leaving the ex pan-European version (which is now the UK version) on Astra 1C acting as a defacto free to air secondary/transitional European feed for countries preparing to switchover to their own newly launched local versions of Cartoon Network up until encryption on 15 October 1999. TNT changed its programming from classic movies to general entertainment, TNT UK ceased to exist on 1 July 2000 and was replaced with an analogue version of TCM. During the late 90s and the early 2000s, Turner Entertainment Networks International (Now Turner Broadcasting System Europe) started localising their channels to suit different audiences across different countries around Europe.
 
 
===Post-pan European split===
 
After the pan-European split, Cartoon Network revamped in 15 October 1999 with the launch of a theme which had shapes and tiles with lines and footage of characters from various shows shown on Cartoon Network. This lasted until August 2002 and was used throughout Europe. This theme was produced by the British animation studio, [[Cosgrove Hall Films]]. A DJ theme was used during the [[AKA Cartoon Network]] programming block, bumpers include a live-action DJ scratching a record, which affects the playback of a cartoon clip.<ref>{{cite web|title=Cartoon Network commercial (AKA sting)|url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8qfuxKh-Jw0|publisher=Turner Broadcasting System Europe|accessdate=10 July 2011}}</ref>
 
 
On 30 June 2001, the analogue feed on Astra 1C of Cartoon Network/TCM ceased broadcasting, this was when Sky ended its analogue services.<ref>{{cite web|title=End of transmissions for TCM / Cartoon Network|url=http://www.selkirkshire.demon.co.uk/analoguesat/tcmclosedown.html|publisher=AnalogueSat|accessdate=20 October 2011}}</ref>

On 11 April 2005, ten months after it was introduced in the United States, the channel debuted a new logo and new [[television ident|idents]]. {{Citation needed|date=January 2014}}
 
 
===Technical faults and interruptions===
 
[[File:Cartoon Network 2004 logo.svg|200px|thumb|Cartoon Network's second logo used in various forms/ different colors/ different styles from 2005 to 2010.]]
 
On 27 July 2006 in the UK, Cartoon Network, along with the other channels, [[Turner Classic Movies (UK & Ireland)|TCM]], [[Boomerang (British TV channel)|Boomerang]], [[Toonami (UK)|Toonami]], Boomerang +1 and [[CN Too]] suffered a major technical fault due to a power cut in [[Soho]], London. This was due to the energy supplier [[EDF Energy|EDF]] cutting power from different parts of Soho one at a time for four hours, purposely, due to the inability as the [[2006 European heat wave]] had hit Turner Broadcasting System Europe. The power cut caused a mix up of channels (''i.e.'' Cartoon Network being broadcast on Boomerang and Toonami, with Boomerang being broadcast on [[CN Too]]). Boomerang +1 was off air for some time, while TCM, reverted between [[TCM France]] and other programming during the times it was able to provide a service. [[Turner Classic Movies (UK & Ireland)#TCM 2|TCM 2]] didn't have a power cut because of its downtimes of timesharing. Most advertising was suspended and several of the channel [[website]]s were offline also. Those who could still receive the channels had a backup transmission played out, making people curious into why the incorrect programmes were played out when compared to the EPG CN Too and Boomerang were showing episodes of [[The Flintstones]]. These backups were played out with a scrolling message which said "We apologise for the disruption to this service. This is due to technical difficulties. We will resume normal programming as soon as possible" in multiple languages. Whilst most channels returned to the air relatively quickly, it took longer for CN Too to resume programming. The idents on Toonami which aired between shows during the black-out displayed the message "Sorry! Toonami is broken, we'll be right back as soon as we fix it." These idents have since been re-used in disclaimers warning viewers not to try stunts on various shows at home.{{Citation needed|date=August 2011}}
 
 
===Post Interruption===
 
On 24 May 2007, the network changed its branding to a similar look to ones one used during 1999-2005. On 11 November 2009, the network revamped which was designed by the design studio, [http://stardust.tv/ Stardust]. The new [[Station identification|idents]] main theming is an arrow moving through several environments animated in 3D [[computer-generated imagery]], such as a jungle, a city populated with [[DC Comics]] superheroes, a Disco/Rock concert and a Japanese anime themed world. This branding lasted until 26 September 2010.
 
 
[[File:Cartoon Network extended logo 2010.svg|200px|thumb|right|A variation of the network's current logo which resembles its original logo, used {{as of|2010|lc=y}}.]]
 
On 27 September 2010, Cartoon Network UK introduced its current branding and logo. Designed by Brand New School, it makes heavy use of a black and white checkerboard motif, as well as various CMYK color variations and patterns. This branding was used in the USA since 29 May 2010.<ref>{{cite web|title=Cartoon Network International News Thread|url=http://www.toonzone.net/forums/showthread.php?181274-Cartoon-Network-International-News-Thread/page37|publisher=Toon Zone|accessdate=9 July 2011}}</ref><ref>{{cite web|title=Fan Talk: What do you like about the new look?|url=http://www.cartoonnetwork.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=266&start=480&tstart=0|publisher=Turner Broadcasting System|accessdate=9 July 2011}}</ref>
 
 
==Cartoon Network programmes==
 
{{unreferenced section|date = January 2014}}
 
{{main|List of programmes broadcast by Cartoon Network (UK & Ireland)|List of former Cartoon Network (UK) programmes}}
 
 
===Original scheduling===
 
When Cartoon Network initially launched, its schedule was mainly made up of short cartoons from both [[Warner Bros.]] and other studios, such as WB's [[Looney Tunes]] and [[Merrie Melodies]] and [[Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer]]'s [[Tom and Jerry]]. A few years after, it started to broadcast its own programming such as ''[[The Powerpuff Girls]]'' and ''[[Dexter's Laboratory]]''.
 
 
===Programming blocks===
 
In September 2000, Toonami began broadcasting weekdays for two hours between 4pm until 6pm, then from 9pm until 11pm, as well as weekends from 10am until 12 midday and 10pm until midnight. ''[[Dragonball Z]]'' had already been airing on Cartoon Network since March 2000, and had been attracting very good ratings, which may have contributed to the decision to launch Toonami in the UK. Its output consisted almost solely of Japanese anime such as the cult ''Dragonball Z'', ''[[Tenchi Muyo]]'', and ''[[Gundam Wing]]''. The only non-Japanese shows for quite some time were the American-produced ''[[The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest]]'' and ''[[Batman Beyond]]'' (''[[Batman of the Future]]'' in the UK).
 
   
 
Around the same time, there was almost completely new programming on the channel, and so Boomerang began in a late night slot.
