It was much less absurd than they're making it out to be. Toonami just wasn't worth keeping around as they hit the end of what they could do with 4kids dubs what with all the people who liked Toonami moving on. The "real" block was a dumb idea but it was just meant to be a block, not a replacement. In the end, the stubborn asshole who made the real block finally stopped trying to push it and toonami got revived for the people who actually want it.

The real downfall was everything Adventure Time onward.

Too many stoners, druggies and sjws got their own shows. To be honest it appeals to their main demographic so it's not an issue, but it has resulted in a change.

>>79835785
I agree, Gumball and at the very least when they first started AD and RS were amazing. People can bitch about SU being "tumblr" but as a cartoon it is pretty great though it have pacing issues and too many fake feels moment for the hell of it.

I don't know, maybe it was because I try still trying to watch CN during that time but it felt like the reality TV stuff lasted for like two years for me. If I recall it only lasted for the Summer right?

Cartoon Netwrok tried to do live shows instead of cartoons. They laid off talented animators, show writers and voice actors in order to comepete with Nickelodeon and failed miserably.

If I was running CN every show would be about the futility and absurdity of existence, especially in the context of our overwrought 21st century post-industrial lives,

If I could capture even a fraction of the anguish and despondency that comes with being alive and transmit that into the home of millions of children I would consider it a great public service. Kids need to know that life is a meaningless struggle. That labels like 'good' or 'bad' are illusory. That your parents saddle on your back the same lies about what it means to be human that their parents did to them and so on and so forth, all of it a great deception to invent meaning where there is none. That against the vastness of the universe our entire world is less than a speck. That our specie's grandest crusades, our most shining moments as well as our most pitiful ones will go equally unnoticed by the all-consuming void.

If I'm successful all the kids would renounce life and become anti-natalists and shun the cruel struggle of existence and eliminate some branches of suffering from our collective crucible.

CN Real lasted for only a month or so, with all the shows except Dude, What Would Happen and Destroy Build Destroy immediately canceled. Afterwards, they picked up 6 more live action stuff (Hall of Game, Unnatural History, Tower Prep*, Level Up, Annoying Orange (a mix of both), and Incredible Crew) before finally giving up in 2014 (mostly due to a change in execs probably) with the last Hall of Game

What's really wrong with cn today isn't the shows it's the presentation. I remember when they had new cartoons on Friday and you would have cartoons hosting. Or remember cartoon city where it was one giant cross over in between commercials? It really made the network feel special.

What CN did was one of the biggest mistakes and that nearly killed the network. It's really hypocritical to it's name as Cartoon Network airs only animated programming 24/7. Shows that combine live action and animation regardless of degree are the only types of live action content that would be accepted on the channel. It should never try to be like Nickelodeon or Disney Channel. They are a channel with a unique programming schedule.

I agree. Packaging can help a network considerably.

Hell, I hate about 90% of [adult swim]'s programming, but I keep it on in the background because I like to get a glance at those chill-as-fuck bumps. Same with Toonami; if it weren't Toonami and just a block that happened to have anime, I wouldn't be watching.

If CN revitalized the Cartoon Cartoon Friday and Cartoon Cartoon City aesthetics, I feel like that would help them a fair bit.
>>
>>79823841

CN Real, but that's been dead for years.

Other than that, it's perfectly fine. Sure, shows like Adventure Time, Regular Show, and Rick and Morty are past their prime and there's too much Canadian dogshit and Tumblr pandering, but there's still decent shows such as We Bare Bears, Be Cool Scooby Doo, and Gumball.

But unfortunately, /co/ thinks everything without 2deep4u lore or lesbian ships is shit.
>>
>>79852180
Flapjack was great but only the first season of Chowder was really good. The second had a few alright episodes but overall it just wasn't as clever and funny.
>>
They killed all their Cartoon Cartoons, fucked with their logo, and after school Toonami then stayed shit for years while ceding more and more airtime to Adult Swim.

Fortunately a large chunk of that damage is being or has been mitigated.

Adult Swim needs to get its ass back to 11 pm and Cartoon Network needs to stop making shows targeted at older teenagers that fail miserably. I think Regular Show's basically the only thing in that vein that's still on the air thank fuck.

But honestly, ALL of this comes down to just fucking juvenoia. Yes, it's exactly cherry picking. You remember the best things of your childhood cartoons and forget all the shit.
Meanwhile, the worst things of modern times come up the most in your mind because they deviate from the past.

Every era of cartoons has had it's ups and it's downs. Fuck, even during the abomination that was CN Real, stuff like My Gym Partner's a Monkey was around that was at the very least passable.
And no, it's not going to be like the past. But then again, you'd complain if it was that way too, because the things that were shit back then would be renewed and much clearer to your more matured mind.
For every one going on about how modern cartoons like Clarence or SU looking the same, people forget shit like Korra, Over the Garden Wall, or Wonder Over Yonder.
