ABOUT CARTOON NETWORK
Established in 1991 as an outlet for showcasing MGM and Hanna-Barbera's catalogue of classic animations, Cartoon Network became famous for its unique original programming. Purchased in 1996 by Time Warner, Cartoon Network's focus from that point on has been to create the best original animated product for contemporary audiences.
ABOUT ADULT SWIM
Established in 2001 as a programming block on Cartoon Network, Adult Swim is a deliberate departure from Cartoon Network's children's programming. It's the late-night entertainment option that features unique animation, takes risks and pushes the rules of television. As their original promotional materials advised, “All kids out of the pool!”
