Welcome to my series of analysis of my very fist kids network that i watched- Cartoon Network through years and how much were people interested/ popular in those years. This time I will analyse year 2006.
This year very little original shows premiered. They introduced new bumpers- YES! bumpers which was named after Fred Fredburger's catchphrase from Billy & Mandy. He was a mascot of this era along with Cheese from FHFIF, even though these guys weren't main characters from their shows. In these bumpers we see characters... say some stuff while there is just... a red background. Umm... well there were also some new CN City bumpers. Near the end of 2006, they release TV movie Re-Animated, which was really hated.
I will now analyse how popular were cartoons that were running at the time and even those that have ended. Also just because some show is higher, it doesn't mean it has more quality than shows that are lower than them. Like for example: would you really consider that Baby Looney Tunes is on same level of quality like The Life & Times of Juniper Lee.
NOTE: Besides CN originals, I will also include WB originals that CN was their home like Teen Titans, Justice League but not ones like Mucha Lucha and Static Shock because CN isn't their home network. Also I will include acquired shows from other countries that are/were shown on CN USA and other country's CNs like Totally Spies and Atomic Betty.
Shows in bold means that those shows had new episodes in 2006.
1. PowerPuff Girls - Even though it ended, it is the most popular CN's show of 2006.
2. Totally Spies- It came very close to be CN's most popular show, but PPG beat them up to it.
3. Teen Titans - TT also came close for the first prize, but the top 2 bet it to it. TT ended this year. Many fans were outraged and they wanted it back. They did get something related to TT few years later, but that's a story for another day.
4. Code Lyoko- How did Odd made his hair like that? Anyway, this was far from top 3, but still pretty popular online.
5. Ben 10 - Show just skyrocketed in popularity in less than a year and it will just keep growing year by year.
6. Codename Kids Next Door -Kids fighting against adult tyranny. It was also one of first serialized cartoons.
7. Ed, Edd & Eddy - I'm proud and amazed that Ed boys remained 7th place for 3 years in a row.
8. Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends -Cheese became one of two mascots during CN YES! era. It was close to EE&E popularity. There were even billboards with him.
9. The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy -Fred Fredburger became one of two mascots during CN YES! era. It was also close to EE&E popularity.
10. Justice League Unlimited - It is still among CN's most acclaimed shows. It ended this year.
11. Johnny Bravo -It is second most popular not currently running cartoon.
12. Samurai Jack -Aku: Foolish samurai warrior is going down the list. Yes. Yes!
13. Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi - 5 episodes never aired in USA for some reason. Now CN wants to erase show from existence for some reason.
14. Courage the Cowardly Dog - CN's first show that can be considered horror-comedy.
15. Justice League - First WB show that CN was their home network. It was often considered pinnacle of DC animation along with its followup Unlimited and Batman: Animated Series.
16. Baby Looney Tunes - It ended this year. That's all folks.
17. Dexter’s Laboratory - Now it's 10 years old.
18. Camp Lazlo- Show gained little more popularity. It had it a lot better than bottom running cartoons.
19. Cow & Chicken -Momma had a chicken. Momma had a cow. Dad was proud. Couldn't care how.
20. Megas XLR - CN wrote it off. It means it won't air on CN again ever again. I feel sorry for their fans.
21. Robotboy - This not My Life as a Teenage Robot, actually catch some of online people interest.
22. Atomic Betty - It stayed the same.
23. Krypto the Superdog - It ended. That's it.
24. Duck Dodgers - It's semi-Ok when came to interest from internet.
25. The Life & Times of Juniper Lee - It didn't gain any more popularity and just stayed same.
26. Class of 3000 - CN's first show with black protagonist, it didn't gain much attention.
27. My Gym Partner’s a Monkey - I doubt it will reach same level of success of most Cartoon Cartoons, but it is more popular than those other Cartoons Cartoons.
28. Bratz - it's still here.
29. Space Ghost Coast to Coast- Ok, I know this show was airing new episodes on Adult Swim, but AS different entity than CN. Also even with airing new episodes it still isn't popular with all those above shows.
30. Squirrel Boy - I am one of seven Anime SuperHero members that is a fan of this show. Also it got some attention at start, but then it died down a lot.
31. Cramp Twins - It ended this year.
32. I Am Weasel - Why it isn't higher?
33. Star Wars Clone Wars -Despite being Star Wars brand, people's interest in it fell down hard. But many other cartoons will unfortunately share the identical fate in the following years.
