Cartoon Network (often abbreviated as CN) is an American cable and satellite television channel that is owned by Time Warner through the Turner Broadcasting System subsidiary. The channel airs primarily children's show - mostly animated programming, ranging from action to animated comedy. It was launched on October 1, 1992.
As of January 2016, Cartoon Network is available to approximately 94.0 million pay television households (80.7% of households with television) in the United States.
Involvement With Robotboy Edit
In 2005, the UK division of Cartoon Network, Cartoon Network Europe, co-created the animated series Robotboy, along with the award-winning French animation studio Alphanim (now known as Gaumont Animation), the French TV channel France 3, Cofinova 1 & LuxAnimation. Cartoon Network is also the channel that aired Robotboy in most of Europe and the United States until its end in 2008. They were also the ones who promoted the series, released merchandise for it, and organized the competition "Robotboy and the Island of Doom".
Cartoon Network has its own micro-site for Robotboy. Although this Robotboy page was bigger and had more features in the past when the show was still airing full-time (like character profiles, downloads and information about the show) it's still online to this day, but only has three video clips from the series and the games Tommy Takeaway and Depth Charger.
Until 2015 the description about Robotboy on the Cartoon Network website was:
Robotboy is one nifty piece of kit, although he has an emotional chip that makes him more like a real boy. When Deactivated Robotboy fits snugly into a backpack, when Activated he is very active indeed, and when Super-activated he is practically invincible! With the help of his best friend and mentor Tommy Turnbull, Robotboy strives to evade the insane clutches of Dr. Kamikazi, a decidedly odd little creature with plans too grand for his mediocre abilities. Robotboy also has the help of plane flying Lola, which comes in handy when Dr. Kamikazi’s giant henchman Constantine is about! (Remarkable is that neither Gus or Professor Moshimo are mentioned).
Since 2016 the new description is:
Robotboy is a super-advanced robot prototype who is sent to live with Tommy Turnbull and his friends to avoid falling into the hands of the evil Dr. Kamikazi, who would use Robotboy for his own despicable ends.
