It's probably been a while since you thought about Cartoon Network. Or not, if you were born after 2005 or regularly think about cartoons. There's absolutely nothing wrong if you're the latter — in fact, I celebrate you — but nothing in this post will be news for you.
For those of you who may have forgotten or don't have the privilege of knowing yet, Cartoon Network was THEE place for animation lovers. It was the channel where kid-friendly fare met with weirder, more experimental content that proved growing up didn't mean growing out of cartoons.
