Cartoon Network is not dead, channel reassures fans after merger with Warner Bros creates panic: ‘We’ll be always be home…’

The 90s kids were pretty upset after news of Cartoon Network’s merger with Warner Bros. went viral. While many thought this marked the end of their childhood and CN would no longer exist, the station decided to console them with a statement that read, “You’re not dead, we’re just turning 30.”

They added: “To our fans, we’re not going anywhere. We are and will always be your home for beloved, innovative cartoons. More coming soon!” Cartoon Network has delivered many gems over the years, such as Tom And Jerry, Scooby Doo, Loony Tunes, Power Puff Girls, Dexter’s Laboratory, Courage the Cowardly Dog, and Flintstones.

According to a report in ABC News, Warner Bros. Television Group (WBTVG) had announced that about two percent of its staff, for a total of 125 positions, in scripted, unscripted and animation, had been laid off. Meanwhile, Channing Dungey, CEO of Warner Bros. Television, said the Cartoon Network and Warner Bros merger could have more effects than their initial plan.

Many were relieved after CN’s latest update and hoped that the station would keep the old cartoons for the current generation to enjoy. “Can you please keep the old shows, the kids get to experience the classic Cartoon Network very often,” one person wrote. Another said the channel should also move with the times, writing: “Of course they keep the old shows, but the newer shows being made for CN are not made for our generation and that’s okay. Let’s just let kids be kids without forcing them to watch our beloved classic shows for the sake of traditions.”

Cartoon Network was founded on October 1, 1992 and is one of the oldest cartoon channels in existence. While many of the old shows were revamped with new animation that was much discussed, many other cartoons started to rise in popularity and left the others behind.
