1. Codename:  Kids Next Door - Easily my favorite Cartoon Cartoon, and one which I find really under-appreciated (though I'm glad it at least got to run for a full six seasons).  All five Sector V operatives are likably distinct and work off each other perfectly, the animation style and character designs give a fresh spin to the vintage tiny-limb/large hands-feet-heads style, the show's sense of humor is passionate and original, and, most importantly, a ton of thought and care is given to the show's universe, especially after Season 1.  I think a lot of people found this show strange, but I thought it was an absolutely brilliant setup; it's basically a satire of how kids perceive reality, but done in a lovingly exciting and epic fashion.

2. Courage the Cowardly Dog - A comedy-horror that really thrived off of its visual style, which can be just as over-the-top as Ren & Stimpy, but also as surreal and ominous as your typical Tim Burton movie.  A lot of people were scared of this program growing up, but I was more fascinated, plus amused.  Unlike The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy, which is really straight-up comedy inspired by Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey, this show had a solid balance of both creepy visuals and tons of laughs.  I was really disappointed to see this show last only four seasons before going kaput.

3. The Powerpuff Girls - One of the most subliminally progressive cartoons of its time (featuring super heroines with a single father and a stupid, corrupt mayor who gets all his ideas from his female assistant), but also one of the freshest and well-balanced.  It features a main villain who I just love to hate (though he may or may not be a reinforcement of World War II-era Japanese stereotypes), a diverse ensemble of side-characters, and a main trio of sisters who seem like genuine family, especially as far as their relationship to their father goes.  They may be polar opposites of each other who constant argue, but at the same time, you can definitely feel the tight bond they share in spite of their respective flaws.  I get more of a positive message from this show than I do from Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, which emphasizes the troublemaking aspect a little too much without investing enough in the friendships and likable traits of its major characters.

I guess I forgot that Billy and Mandy and KND were Cartoon Cartoons, but these were my favorite as well along with the others.

Oh hey you guys, I'm not sure if many people can remember these two cartoons, but can you all recall Mike, Lu & Og and Sheep in the Big City?

1. Ed, Edd n Eddy

2. Dexter's Laboratory

3. The Powerpuff Girls

Those are my top 3 Cartoon Cartoons, since that's included in 3 of my top 5 best Cartoon Network shows, however, honorable mentions would be Courage the Cowardly Dog, Johnny Bravo, and Codename: KND. My least favorite Cartoon Cartoon would probably be What Ever Happened to Robot Jones.

What made Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy and Codename: KND different than other Cartoon Cartoons like Dexter's Lab, Johnny Bravo, Powerpuff Girls, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Cow & Chicken, etc. is that a lot of its episodes and seasons played its major role in the City Era (post-2004 age) and didn't premiere or gain its popularity until the last year of the Powerhouse Era (golden age). Most of the original Cartoon Cartoons had almost all of its episodes and seasons throughout the entire Powerhouse Era and that's why it's more well known for being Cartoon Cartoons. Ed, Edd n Eddy on the other hand, is completely on the cusp.


Along with (debatably) Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, they're still usually both considered the last truly classic shows on Cartoon Network before it took a nosedive in quality, and were the channel's only saving graces until the turn of 2008, when they ended with a crossover episode, as well as a movie epilogue in KND's case.

That's right, while Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends was the first major CN original show in the history of the network that was not apart of the Cartoon Cartoons, it's still considered as the last show created by CN that's loved by the majority of classic Cartoon Network fans, including myself, and I loved it! Shortly after Foster's Home premiered, Hi Hi Puffy Ami Yumi would come out, which was the turning point in quality, and I had no interest in the show along with the majority of the other shows that would premiere throughout 2005 and onwards, but I know some people who liked it. Same could be said for Life in Times of Juniper Lee, Camp Lazlo (although it was decent IMO but not my favorite), My Gym Partner's A Monkey, etc. Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends and Ben 10 were the only shows created by Cartoon Network after mid 2004 that I truly enjoyed with a passion. So yeah, about the saving grace part, you're right on! Foster's Home, Billy & Mandy, Codename: KND, and Ed, Edd n Eddy were the 4 saving graces of the post-2004 Cartoon Network era!

I know that YouTube comments are usually trolling and/or clinically insane, but do you agree/disagree with these arguments?

This post was unnecessary..... not a good idea.

Anyways, everybody has their own opinion on when their favorite channels started falling apart, but the guy who posted his opinion is wrong on that one if he's talking about me! People need to realize that kids don't wait until they're 10 or 11 years old to start watching cartoons, that's when you start getting too old for them unless you're a passionate cartoon fan or trying to pursue a career in animation one day. Kids start watching their favorite cartoons around Kindergarten or 1st grade when they're 5 or 6 years old on average.

Am I the only one who realizes that Samurai Jack was not a "Cartoon Cartoon"? It's because when it comes to Samurai Jack despite being a CN original series, it still premiered many episodes on CCF along with the main Cartoon Cartoons, which is why it confuses people. Heck I remember What's New Scooby-Doo being on CCF for a little bit in 2003 but that didn't mean it was apart of the "Cartoon Cartoons" lol.

Out of all the main Cartoon Cartoons I remember seeing on Cartoon Network regularly, like Dexter's Lab, Johnny Bravo, Powerpuff Girls, Ed Edd n Eddy, Codename: KND, Courage the Cowardly Dog, etc. It seemed like Cow & Chicken was the least shown one of all. I remember some episodes of Cow & Chicken, but I don't remember it being played as much as other popular Cartoon Cartoons like Dexter's Lab, PPG, or Courage you know what I mean.

No. I knew it wasn't one either especially that it was more a mature show and that wasn't on CCF as much as the others.

That's because C&C aired its episodes during the late 90s and was over by 1999. After that, it was shown as reruns for a few more years. Then after 2000/01, I didn't see C&C on CN much often.
