What a Cartoon

Show Summary

Welcome to the What a Cartoon! guide at TV.com. Cartoon Network had begun airing classic Hanna-Barbera and Warner Bros. cartoons, but in 1995, they got interested in new animation after Space Ghost Coast to Coast was a hit. Fred Seibert got the idea for a show that would feature new cartoon shorts by young animators. The What a Cartoon! project was made so that Cartoon Network would get new talents and new original series. Some veteran animators would also make cartoons for the show. In 1995, the cartoon show premiered as World Premiere Toons. Space Ghost introduced the audience to it on his show, complete with the debut of Craig McCracken's Meat Fuzzy Lumkins. Every half-hour episode of World Premiere Toons featured three original cartoons. The success of the show caused CN to continue it and make some of the shorts as their own series. In 1996, the series was renamed What a Cartoon!, but the format remained. The series continued until August 2000. Of the What a Cartoon! shorts, Dexter's Laboratory, Johnny Bravo and Cow and Chicken had already spun off to their own series. The same would later happen to The Powerpuff Girls, Courage the Cowardly Dog and Mike, Lu & Og. In 1997, the show was retitled The Cartoon Cartoon Show, airing shorts from the past and present as well as episodes of Cartoon Cartoons. Cartoon Network announced in 2008 that it was making a project called Cartoonstitute in which would have worked in a way similar to the What A Cartoon! Showand was then cancelled.

    What a Cartoon it was! I remember this show from when I was a kid! It was so funny. I wonder if they air any reruns now.

    One of my favorite things to do when I was a kid was wake up on Saturday morning and watch cartoons. I was so addicted with them that I even wanted to create my own series. I have since grown up and don't watch them as often, but that doesn't mean that I don't like them anymore.

    I always loved watching cartoons while I was growing up! However, it never really occurred to me that I should write a cartoon. I might give it a try! Cartoon writing sounds like a pretty fun hobby to have.
  • This Helped Create Many of the Cartoon Cartoons

    Many of the greatest shows Cartoon Network had came from this show. Cow and Chicken, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Johnny Bravo, Dexter's Laboratory, the Powerpuff Girls, and many others got their start on this show, ultimately creating the first Cartoon Cartoons, which helped make Cartoon Network awesome until Stuart Snyder ruined the company. This show even had Larry and Steve, which would be a precursor to Family Guy.



    Even the cartoon shorts that didn't get their own shows were still awesome. One of my favorites was Gramps, about a grandfather who tells his grandkids about the time he saved Earth from an alien invasion.moreless
