The fine folks at Cartoon Network should be proud of the work they've done to make it to their twentieth birthday! Imagine the challenge of going head to head with early 90's titans Nickelodeon and Disney Channel. Maybe it's because I'm obsessed with cartoons, but i think they've come out ahead of both of those networks (if they even still exist).
CN makes some of its own shows and most importantly, programs to the late night jackass interested in reruns and SUPER irreverent programming. If I had to sum up some highlights of the last 10 years of their work, I'd pick these three words as reasons why you can love Cartoon Network, too.
Adventure Time (specifically the Ice King):
I know I left out a zillion shows (Regular Show) that they're responsible for popularizing (Dexter's Laboratory, too). Find your own reason to love utilizing a big imagination!
