Brian Robbins and Mike Tollin wanted to make it more Nickelodeon-style. Dan Schneider, inspiration to the All That series and creator of Zoey 101, Drake & Josh, iCarly and Unfabulous, have contributed to the animation cartoons which is why it's also credited as Schneider's Bakery. Also, the first short will be presented before the actual series begins. The fourth season premiered in January 25, 2012 with the same production as the 3rd season but only one short will air with the tagline "Surprising Shorts" until the fifth season premieres. It is confirmed that Warner Bros. Animation is abandoning the project to continue on the Looney Tunes Show.

- Dooper: A restaurant that served different items every sketch which is run by a man and his daughter Doreen (played by Amanda Bynes). Whatever was offered (i.e. ice cream, soup, sushi,cookie), was usually gross. Examples included spider crunch ice cream (with actual spiders), and underwear chowder soup. On occasion, a customer would ask "Hey, didn't this used to be a (sushi, cookie, soup, etc) restaurant?" The employees would respond that it "wasn't their thing" and say that they're now (weenie, cookie, sushi, etc.) people. In later episodes, they would say things like "I'll thank you never to mention that again." At the end of the skit, the customer tries a special sample that actually tastes good — but had a surprise. After hearing the name of the sample, they will ask why it was named that, upon which the customer would have some calamity related to the name of the dish happen to him, such as being attacked by a samurai upon trying a "Samurai roll", being punched by Abraham Lincoln upon trying "Lincoln Punch", or being crushed br a refrigerator upon trying "Refrigerator Crunch". A recurring gag is that the family's grandfather comes in from the back and the father responds "NOT NOW, GRANDPA". Grandpa usually responds to that comment with "FAILURE", which goes with their usually unsuccessful business.
- Who Wants to Win a Bunch of Money?: A game show parody of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire hosted by Blib (voiced by Ryan Seacrest) and his sidekick, No-Siree-Bob the Horn-Honking Clown who communicates via bike-horn or foghorn, similar to Sideshow Bob from The Simpsons. The questions were fairly easy, with four choices as answers. Half of the answers usually did not have anything to do with the question. For example, when shown the answers for the question, "How many inches are in a foot?", two possible answers were "Pink" and "Meat". Whenever someone gives a question wrong, No Siree Bob honks the horn at someone's face.
- Survival of the Grossest: A parody of the hit reality TV series Survivor, this time contestants were stranded in a strange location in a certain state (such as a bathtub in North Dakota or a parked car in aparking lot in Oklahoma). The contestants, usually characters from other recurring skits in the show, were forced to stay in the place and eat the disgusting cuisine that is being served by the nameless host. Who ever eats the disgusting food or stays the longest will win USD 1,000,000. Whoever left the wacky location would summon two guards to take them out of the location, and ultimately out of the game. When it came down to three or four contestants, the final three or four must vote one player out of the game. Many characters often annoy each other into leaving the game.
- The Extremes: This sketch is about the Extreme family, a family of three who always take every little thing to an extreme. Whatever they feel, they seem to always overreact to it. For example, when eating pizza, the daughter begins crying hysterically, claiming she is sad that when they finish eating it, it will be gone. This exasperates everyone around the family.
- Welcome To... (Object): A parody of some fashion or auction shop programming that involves interviews and brief clips of things based on the items (i.e. baby cribs, video games, TVs) featured a young child as the host. A rapper can be seen at the beginning of each episode of the sketch.
- When...Attack: "When... Attack", hosted by Amanda Bynes, parodies dramas such as When Animals Attack!. Bynes introduces herself as some ridiculous but possibly famous character, then explains how a group of entities (such as cheerleaders, elderly women, The Brady Bunch, school mascots, and female Hula dancers) have been attacking people. She then shows the viewers two incidents of attacks, first played at normal speed, then in slow motion. The victims then appear in interviews, injured, distraught and sometimes repeating exactly what the host says. At the end, the host tells the viewers to call a number, usually something like, for example: "1-500-I-Just-Saw-_________-Attack-Some-Person-And-Now-I'm-Calling-This-Number-To-Report-What-I-Saw". The attackers then arrive in the studio, either assaulting the host or causing her to run away screaming. The attackers will then either proceed to attack the cameraman or dance, concluding the sketch. Amanda also shows little sympathy for the victims of the attack.
- Cartoon-a-Long: A music video sketch introduced in the third season, animated by Turrner Broadcasting, as a parody of Boomerang's karaoke programming, Boomerang-a-Long. The sketch showcases several music videos performed live by the special guest star musician in the episode, including karaoke effects so children can sing along.
- Surprising Shorts: A series of shorts that has been introduced in the third season. The sketch shows the short that is going to be presented in the episode due to the production change of the series from three shorts to two shorts (the first short will be presented at the beginning of the episode before the opening sequence plays). It was later changed, making the Surprising Shorts only showing one-shot shorts.
- Flory and Mace: A Tom and Jerry parody cartoon that always appears in the Cartoon Factory shorts. The shorts are created by fictional animator Buddy Winkler who died from cancer so George and Harold have to follow his footsteps. The characters are mute like Tom&Jerry. The shorts are rarely presented in the previous two seasons but are now shown frequently as of the third season. Dan Castellaneta and Nancy Cartwright voices the duo in real-life but in the Cartoon Factory universe, man of 1,000 cartoon voices does it.
- Lava: A series of 30-second cartoon shorts featuring random animals doing things. The short is controversal and is shown rarely due to copyrights. The opening sequence tends to scare viewers.
- Spacecataz: Not to be confused with the ATHF shorts of the same name, the show features the shorts ment to represent the episode being shortened to two minutes, even sporting the theme song for the episoede. It replaced "Surprising Shorts" as the beginning act.
- Japanese Banana: Based on the Chipmunks song, the cartoon is about an oriental banana named Rippenge who is a kung fu warrior in an Edo-period Japanese town with an Asian banana population. The cartoon was animated by Gosho Aoyama, who created Case Closed (Detective Conan in Japanese).
- Sportoons: Originally a half-hour series and a short-series, a couple of episodes were linked for the series. The show is about anthromorphical animals such as cats, hippopotami, pigs, tigers and dogs play several kinds of sports such as basketball, American football, shot put, ice hockey, chess, karate, tennis and others. The cartoon has no dialogue, like Lava, Flory & Mace and many others.
- Ancient Chinese Pantomime: A traditional animated black-and-white mockummercial that is about any situation involving people who are ethnictly Chinese. Chinese text appears at the beginning including a voiceover (voice of James Hong) speaking in a heavy Chinese accent saying (in Engrish) at the beginning "Back to present, Ancient Chinese Pantomime. Just for fun of it, (subject) tonight". The text translates to the English language of the subject. The subject would be any Western type food (Jello, Snickers) and a Chinese person would be seen in which the announcer says "Back to the present, Chinese type (object)" and taks about the situation in which the Chinese person is unable to eat the food, which the announcer describes the flavor and the problem solves, in which at the end the announcer says "So ends, Ancient Chinese Pantomime. It's pretty good commercial. No?" in which at the last scene, Chinese windchimes form the letters of the subject and them transforms to the logo with Chinese music playing. As it is a pantomime, none of the characters can talk, or even try, but a couple of episodes, some soundclips of them speaking (both Mandarin Chinese and English) can be heared.
- North Playground: A cutout animation series that parodies Comedy Central's South Park. The show features the same animation style as the series but uses actual cutout animation than the computer animation used in South Park. The characters are animated with cutouts of construction paper and the talking quirly style, including the mis lip-sync, mocks the style of South Park. The similar humor from the show is used but is slightling lighter due to Cartoon Factory being friendly. The show is about four friends who have misadventures and make jokes named Ernie Cortman (parody of Eric Cartman), Korey Berkowski (parody of Kyle Broflovski), Stern March (parody of Stan Marsh) and Lenny McCarmip (parody of Kenny McCornmick). The theme song is actually the background music of the original series copying the lyrics and changing it to make it for children appropriate.

Kevin Wu, Carlos Alazraqui and Tom Kenny provide vocal effects for the cartoon.

- The Nutty Professors: A short made by Dreamworks, animated in 2D animation for the first time. This is a sequel to the 1963 and the Eddie Murphy films of the same name.
