Well it's official, I'm done with Cartoon Network… at least other than Steven Universe and a few shows on Adult Swim like the anime on Toonami and Rick and Morty, because other than those (and if they greenlight Infinity Train, and I beg they do), I am pretty much done watching their channel, because they give me no reason to watch them anymore since lately they seem to have become the All-Teen Titans Go Network.
Earlier this week on January 16th, 2017, the popular animated series Regular Show aired it's final two episodes. I never managed to watch a single episode of the 8th and final season because I was always busy with other things when the episodes were on, so I was hoping they would have a marathon of the show so I could catch up on it… NOPE, they decided to have ANOTHER Teen Titans Go marathon, as well as airing Shrek two times in the course of three days (because for whatever reason CN’s schedule is terrible with movies) rather than airing any episodes of Regular Show.
As you can guess, I'm one of those people who heavily despises Teen Titans Go, right down to using the popular derogatory term "Toddler Titans" to refer to it. Now I don't have to say WHY I hate TTG because I hate it for pretty much the same reasons everyone else who hates it does, being that it's an insult to the original 2003 series that I grew up with and have fond memories of, the characters being either idiots or unlikable assholes (or worse, BOTH), and the show constantly insulting the fans of the original show as well as the intelligence of it’s alleged target audience of 7-12 year olds.
Now I can go on forever with my history with Cartoon Network and how I grew up with it, what shows I liked and hated, etc. as well as all the reasons I hate TTG such as what episodes I hate the most (The "Return" of Slade is definitely high on that list). Point is, they recently crossed the line with me because of how horrible they're treating any show that isn't TTG. I mean, I know people compare how CN overplays TTG to how Nickelodeon overplays Spongebob, but there’s a huge difference between Spongebob and TTG, being that Spongebob is a Nick original and was very good in it's first 3-4 seasons as well as it's first movie, whileas TTG is NOT a CN original (Warner Animation makes it), it started out mediocre and got worse very quickly, and yet it gets overplayed to death (at least with Spongebob it took a few years).
Really, I see barely any hope for Cartoon Network this year, since Infinity Train is not greenlit yet, I couldn’t get into Mighty Magiswords (it was just far too "hyper" for my tastes), they ruined the Powerpuff Girls and Ben 10 completely with their "reboots" by removing what made them popular to begin with (and I can go on forever about that, but that's a topic for another time).
I know Steven Universe is eventually going to end, but until the CN shows improvement and airs some good new shows, I'm pretty much done with it outside of Steven Universe and Adult Swim.
