USA Cartoon Express was a showcase for various cartoon series -- it began as mainly reruns of shows from the Hanna-Barbera library, but eventually expanded. Cartoons were surrounded by bumpers, featuring characters from each of the shows on a train. The Cartoon Express ran for nearly two decades and was eventually replaced by "The USA Action Extreme Team."

Some of the shows that rode the old Express were:
