This is a list of television programs currently or formerly broadcast by Cartoon Network in the United States. The network was launched on October 1, 1992, and airs mainly animated programming, ranging from action to animated comedy.
In its early years, Cartoon Network's programming was predominantly made up of reruns of Looney Tunes, Tom and Jerry, and Hanna-Barbera shows such as Quick Draw McGraw, The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Johnny Quest, and Scooby-Doo. Cartoon Network's first original series were The Moxy Show and the late-night satirical animated talk show, Space Ghost Coast to Coast. The What a Cartoon! series of showcase shorts brought about the creation of a number of Cartoon Network original series, the first of which made into a full-fledged series was Dexter's Laboratory (created by Genndy Tartakovsky) in 1996, followed by Johnny Bravo (created by Van Partible) and Cow and Chicken in 1997 (as well as its spinoff, I Am Weasel later in 1999) (created by David Feiss), The Powerpuff Girls (created by Craig McCracken) in 1998, and Courage the Cowardly Dog (created by John R. Dilworth) in 1999, which debuted alongside Mike, Lu & Og (created by Charles Swenson). Another popular series, Ed, Edd n Eddy (created by Danny Antonucci) was one of the first to air without a What a Cartoon! pilot, debuting in 1999. Dexter's Laboratory creator Tartakovsky went on to create two more series for Cartoon Network: Samurai Jack and Star Wars: Clone Wars, and Powerpuff Girls creator McCracken later produced Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends for the network. Other series to be greenlit from programs similar to What a Cartoon! include Whatever Happened to Robot Jones? (created by Greg Miller), Codename: Kids Next Door (created by Mr. Warburton), and The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy (created by Maxwell Atoms).
Following the resignation of Jim Samples, Cartoon Network began airing live-action original series such as Destroy, Build, Destroy and Dude, What Would Happen as part of the CN Real block. By 2013, Cartoon Network began moving away from live-action series with the 2010 premieres of Adventure Time (created by Pendleton Ward) and Regular Show (created by J. G. Quintel).
Cartoon Network has also broadcast a number of feature films, mostly animated or containing animated sequences, under its "Cartoon Theater" block, later renamed "Flicks".
