Kids' WB's current logo

The Kids' WB Network is an American television network created by Time Warner, created as an animation channel for kids. The network began broadcast on September 7, 1985, with

Bugs & Daffy, one of its first original Cartoon Cartoons, Animaniacs, Pinky & The Brain, Earthworm Jim, 2 Stupid Dogs, Freakazoid!, The Sylvester & Tweety Mysteries and the Scooby-Doo franchises being its first-aired group of programs

Kids' WB currently serves as a 24-hour outlet of cartoons for kids and some classic cartoons as well. Since 1990, Kids' WB has also aired Cartoon Network originals, such as Ed Edd n Eddy, Dexter's Laboratory and Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi. Over its succesful years, Kids' WB has been popular with its brand-new originals.


1985-1987: Backlot Era

In 1985, when the network premiered, Kids' WB had the studio backlot (similar to the Warner Bros. Studios backlot) as its first theme. The Backlot theme lasted until Kids' WB used that with a mix of Cartoon Network's Powerhouse bumpers on July 10, 1987.

Most episodes of the shows have aired in half-hour of hour-long packages: The BugsNDaffy AmiYumi PinkyBrainy Warneroonie SuperLooney Big Cartoonie Show featured segments from various Kids' WB comedy cartoons, The Tom and Jerry Show presented the classic cat and mouse duo and Bugs & Daffy presented classic Looney Tunes shorts from post-1948 to the 2000s.

1987-Present: Backlot/Powerhouse Era

Kids' WB underwent its makeover in July 10, 1987, launching the Backlot and Powerhouse mix theme that is currently used as of today. Even one anime show. During this era, new series, such as Waynehead, Tiny Toon Adventures, The New Batman/Superman Adventures, Road Rovers, Tom & Jerry Kids, Dexter's Laboratory, Pokemon, The Flintstones, Pucca, I Am Weasel, Ed Edd n Eddy and The Powerpuff Girls, premiered bearing the Cartoon Cartoons brand, excluding action cartoons. During this era, the Powerhouse theme still featured the studio backlot and had characters from the cartoons they aired and the Kids' WB logo or the word NEXT and the Kids' WB logo. They were multiple color variants for the timeslots (Yellow for the morning, green for the afternoon, blue for the evening, black for late-night, purple for action cartoons and, beginning in 2001, late-night, orange and black for Halloween, brown for Thanksgiving and light blue for Christmas). Often, an announcer or one star of the show would say something witty over them or the music cue of the show's theme song and Raymond Scott's Powerhouse. In 1999, the Friday night block, Cartoon Cartoon Fridays, premiered as a block for series premieres and new episodes as well as special events, most notably Cartoon Cartoon Weekend Summerfest.

2000s: Making way for new series

In the 2000s, the network still added more popular shows, more recently The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy, Codename: Kids Next Door, Time Squad, What's New Scooby-Doo!, Mucha Lucha!, Ozzy & Drix and Jackie Chan Adventures. In 2004, the network had a new slogan: "Welcome To Kids WB: The Place To Be!" and had the characters doing the Coming Up Next, We'll Be Right Back and Back To The Show sequences, the first time that happened in years. Later in 2005, the network premiered newer shows and had new episodes for each show. The network also added the shows that currently aired since the 90s (i.e.: The Powerpuff Girls, Ed Edd n Eddy, Dexter's Laboratory and Bugs & Daffy) and put them in a 30-minute or 60-minute block known as The Cartoon Cartoons Show, for the shows that still aired. In 2007, the series premiere of the newest Cartoon Cartoon, Chowder, became the highest-rated series since Bugs & Daffy's series premiere in 1995. Aside from Chowder, no other Cartoon Cartoons premiered in '07. Throughout the 2000s, Kids' WB became the most-succesful television network for kids, beating out Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon and Disney Channel in the ratings.

2010: Brand-new series & A brand-new block

In 2010, Kids' WB plans to premiere seven brand-new original series, which most will be new Cartoon Cartoons. The new shows for 2010 will be The New Looney Tunes Show, Young Justice and Green Lantern: The Animated Series. There will be a new weekday-afternoon block known as Kids' WB's Daily Dubba AfterToons, which will air weekday afternoons and feature sneak peeks of brand-new shows as well as aring current favorites such as Bugs & Daffy, Pokemon, Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi, Mucha Lucha!, The Sylvester & Tweety Mysteries, Ben 10, Codename: Kids Next Door, Kid vs Kat, Ed Edd n Eddy, Loonatics Unleashed, The Powerpuff Girls, and Totally Spies!. Also, all of Kids' WB's action cartoons (i.e.: Samurai Jack, Captain Planet, Jackie Chan Adventures, etc.) are shown less frequently to make room for all of the comedy/fun-oriented cartoons (i.e.: Bugs & Daffy, Pokemon, Ed Edd n Eddy, CatDog, The Big Cartoonie Show, Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi, Dexter's Laboratory, The Powerpuff Girls, 2 Stupid Dogs, Pinky & The Brain, Waynehead, Tiny Toon Adventures and The Sylvester & Tweety Mysteries).
