Cartoon Cartoons were first showcased as World Premiere Toons and later in 1995 on The What a Cartoon! Show, a series of comedic animated shorts produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions and Cartoon Network Studios guided by Fred Seibert. Seibert had been a guiding force for Nickelodeon (having overseen the creation of Nicktoons shortly prior to his departure) prior to joining Hanna-Barbera and would establish Frederator Studios years later. The first series to spin off from The What a Cartoon! Show was Dexter's Laboratory in 1996. A year later, Johnny Bravo and Cow and Chicken joined Dexter on the Cartoon Network lineup. The Powerpuff Girls became a Cartoon Cartoon in the fall of 1998. I Am Weasel and Ed, Edd n Eddy were the first two Cartoon Cartoons series not to be introduced as a What a Cartoon! short.

More shows premiered bearing the Cartoon Cartoons brand, airing throughout the network's schedule and prominently on "Cartoon Cartoon Fridays", which became the marquee night for premieres of new episodes and shows beginning in 1999. On September 5, 2003, the block was rebooted as "Fridays", hosted by Tommy Snider, Nzinga Blake (2003-2004) and Tara Sands (2005-2007). The last airing of "Fridays" was on February 23, 2007. It aired shows that were considered by the network (at times) as outside the "Cartoon Cartoon" moniker, such as Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, Duck Dodgers, Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi, and Camp Lazlo.

As early as September 2005, the "Cartoon Cartoons" label was primarily used for The Cartoon Cartoon Show, a half-hour program featuring episodes of older Cartoon Cartoons that were no longer shown regularly on the network, and "Cartoon Cartoon Top 5", which was an hour-long program featuring a countdown of the week's five "best" Cartoon Cartoons from the older lineup.

The longest running Cartoon Cartoon is Ed, Edd n Eddy, which ran for 10 years. Whatever Happened to... Robot Jones? was the shortest lived Cartoon Cartoon and is the only one with no plans to be released on DVD.

The block Cartoon Planet was revived on Cartoon Network on March 30, 2012, airing in a format similar to The Cartoon Cartoon Show (formerly known as The What a Cartoon! Show). It is currently airing Cartoon Cartoons from the late 1990s to late 2000s, such as Dexter's Laboratory, Johnny Bravo, Cow and Chicken, I Am Weasel, The Powerpuff Girls, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Ed, Edd n Eddy, Codename: Kids Next Door, and many more Cartoon Cartoons, including original Cartoon Network Studios shows outside the "Cartoon Cartoon" moniker such as Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, Camp Lazlo, and Chowder. Cartoon Planet returned on October 5, 2012, for Cartoon Network's 20th anniversary.

Famous quotes containing the word history:

    History is more or less bunk. It’s tradition. We don’t want tradition. We want to live in the present and the only history that is worth a tinker’s damn is the history we make today.
    Henry Ford (1863–1947)

    Let it suffice that in the light of these two facts, namely, that the mind is One, and that nature is its correlative, history is to be read and written.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles.
    Karl Marx (1818–1883)
