Cartoon Network has been part of our memories since 1992. Warner Bros. Animation (WBA) and Cartoon Network Studios (CNS) will be merged along with Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe. This means that CNs will no longer be independent. We thank CNs for making memories for the last three decades. Farewell Cartoon Network.
According to Chairman Channing Dungey, all three labels will continue to exist just by name. WBA and CNS will be merged. The cross-studio teams will be extended which already include programming, casting, legal, business affairs, and artist relations.
Warner Bros Animation has been a much more catalog and IP-driven studio, whereas Cartoon Network Studio focused on original series and specials.
Cartoon Network has produced amazing shows like Uncle Grandpa, Steven Universe, Clarence, Over the Garden Wall, We Bare Bears, Craig of the Creek, Summer Camp Island, Infinity Train, Primal, etc.
Whereas, Warner Bros has produced shows like Batwheels, Bugs Bunny Builders, Aquaman: King of Atlantis, Teen Titans Go!, Jellystone!, Animaniacs, Looney Tunes Cartoons, Harley Quinn, Justice League Action, and The Tom and Jerry Show.
In the new setup, Audrey Diehl will lead the kids and family series development at both WBA and CNS, Peter Girardi will lead adult animation development, and Sammy Perl mutter will lead the animated long-form series along with Bobbie Page leading the main production. Ed Adams will continue as executive VP and GM.
Y’all we're not dead, we're just turning 30 😂
To our fans: We're not going anywhere. We have been and will always be your home for beloved, innovative cartoons ⬛️⬜️ More to come soon!#CartoonNetwork #CN30 #30andthriving #CartoonNetworkStudios #FridayFeeling #FridayVibes
