In the now, man
It's honestly kind of funny that what may be my two biggest special interests- Cartoon Network and Walt Disney World- share a birthday that are a good 20 years apart. Also my mom, of all things

But happy 30th to what's still the best place for toons, even with certain things going on!

I'm currently still working on something special for the date, but don't forget to check out the official livestream! Right now it's playing the prom episode of Teen Titans.

It seems like they've had a good variety of shows on that live stream so far. I skimmed back, and I've seen Fosters Home, Ben 10, Ed, Ed, and Eddy, Looney Tunes, etc.

Happy 30th anniversary, Cartoon Network!

I remember having a lot of memories watching CN as a kid. While the network is sort of in a rut now, I hope things can get better and CN can thrive again. Here's to another 30 more years of CN. You are my favorite kids network outside of Toon Disney and Nickelodeon.

something i noticed in the live stream, when they played the power episode of regular show, they played the uncensored version, even though when they aired it on TV, they aired the censored version, and the versions on hulu and (i think) HBO max have the censored versions, to my knowledge even the DVD's use the censored version

This would be nice but why wouldn't Adventure Time and Regular Show need special times during CN's 30th? They were instrumental in saving Cartoon Network from going under in 2010 after they pushed live action the previous year. I feel like they're both way too important to the network to not get air time during the festivities. My list of older shows would be this...

Definitely:
Dexter's Lab
Powerpuff Girls
Ed Edd n Eddy
Courage
Billy & Mandy
Kids Next Door
Foster's Home
Camp Lazlo
Chowder
Adventure Time
Regular Show
Gumball
Steven Universe
Clarence
We Bare Bears
OK KO
Apple & Onion

Maybe:
Johnny Bravo
Cow and Chicken
I Am Weasel
Evil Con Carne
My Gym Partner's a Monkey
Flapjack
Uncle Grandpa
Mighty Magiswords

Obviously I wouldn't include all of these shows, but most of the ones I put under definitely airing on the anniversary would be amazing! Also this is more of a nitpick but I don't think Flintstones or Scooby Doo Where Are You? would really fit for a CN 30th anniversary. Both of those shows are pretty dated animation wise, and most would probably associate them with Boomerang over CN nowadays.
I'd honestly say that CN fulfilled a lot of my requests. Camp Lazlo and OK KO were the only shows in the definitely column that CN didn't show in any capacity. Meanwhile Flapjack, Uncle Grandpa, and Cow and Chicken (youtube live-stream only), were the only shows in the maybe category that CN showed for us today. On top of that Camp Lazlo, and Johnny Bravo characters were seen in some of the City bumpers in the livestream and OK KO, I Am Weasel, Camp Lazlo, and Gym Partner were referenced in that running CN characters video they showed on twitter. Also I forgot to add Ben 10 to the list, but it'd be in the definitely category if I hadn't, and the live-stream aired the episode "Back With a Vengeance" from that series.

To think that it was 5 years ago on this day when Stella Zhau made her "technical"/off-screen debut. It wouldn't be until August 2nd of that year when she made her "formal"/on-screen debut.
Revivals are fine if a show was abruptly cancelled and didn't get to finish its story, but for Pete's sake, can we at least slow down on the reboots so that original content can take priority? Why are networks so afraid of innovating now as if they haven't done it before?

It's been one year since NickRewind block ceased the operations.
it's that day of the year!
