    Remember Back in The Day You Would Come Home From School Turn on The TV and Put it on Cartoon Network and You Would Watch Shows Like Reboot, He-Man, Gundam Wing, Tenchi Muyo, DragonBall, The PowerPuff Girls, Thunder Cats and other shows of The Like Back in 2000 and 2001 Those Were Probably The Best Years To Be Watching Cartoon Network!

    Yeah I miss the good old days too. I especially miss shows like Toon Heads which would feature old Warner Bros. cartoons with Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck.

    while on a trip to Jersey

    F'n blew my mind to see Voltron on TV again

    Cartoon Network itself has gone downhill, but ever since 2003 AS had made the overall network better then its ever been. Although I desperately want Sheep in the Big City back.

    I miss the old CN terribly. Back then, the channel had a lot of variety. Now, there are so many marathons of the newer cartoons because of the smaller variety.

    If your Cable provider carries Boomerang (a seperate Cartoon Network channel), you can still get some great old cartoons. I know they have Smurfs, Snorks, and a bunch of Hannah Barbara shows in the lineup now.

    That's the prob, too much HB stuff, but I suppose it's better than nothing. Where we live, we can only get Boomerang on Sattelite, and we don't have sattelite. ^^

    I started getting CN at my house in the summer of 1994. I remember back then it was a lot like how Boomerang is today. 11 years later, I rarely watch it. It's now nothing but ultra-modern television. To make a long story short, I watch Boomerang more than CN. Boomerang is retro city except they're starting to show some of the shows CN shows now.

    I too liked Toon Heads, hence my name. Does anyone remember that cartoon network rap in the early 90s? It was a good example of what Cartoon Network was all about.

    I miss the old CN too. For me, I'd have to say the best years were somewhere around the late 90s. like 98 and 99 up until whenever they pulled all these shows. I remember the old toonami that had thundercats, voltron and sailor moon! such good times. CN itself had a lot of variety back then mixing old and new. Now it has such a small amount of shows...I never watch it. and up until about this year at chrsitmas time they'd show old stuff like toonheads christmas, smurfs christmas and christmas comes to pac-land, but I haven't seen any of those on the lineup this time.

    It's called Super Chunk, I miss those. I remember the days when Cartoon Network used to show both old and new cartoons. Now Cartoon Network is crap. Lack of diversity, show the same cartoons over and over again. I only watch Adult Swim.

    CN was cool when Toonami first came out they would show Thundercats, Voltron, Silverhawks, and then on Saturdays in the afternoon they had a marathon of one cartoon which the theme was called Superchunk. For about 3-4 hrs that was cool and fun .

    Yeah, but even Boomerang has started to slide as far as the diversity of their schedule. Sundays used to the best with Boomeraction, but that's gone, and they just keep running the same shows every four hours.

    I waws thinking that it would be cool if Viacom (do they still own Nick and CBS?) would start their own retrocartoon channel showcasing the Saturday morning that CBS used to show (almost all the Filmation stuff, along with Sid & Marty Krofft), plus classic Nick like YCDTOT, Count Duckula, Danger Mouse, Super Ted, et al.

    I think that channel would rock.
