Animaniacs on Cartoon Network
Animaniacs Marathon on Cartoon Network

Cartoon Network (abbreviated CN, corporately known as The Cartoon Network, Inc.) is an American cable television network created by Turner Broadcasting (now owned by Time Warner) which primarily shows animated programming. It originally served as a 24-hour outlet for classic animation properties from the Turner Broadcasting libraries and is mainly youth-oriented, but shares channel space with a late-night adult oriented channel programming block called Adult Swim.

Animaniacs aired a special two-hour marathon on Cartoon Network on January 31, 1997. Eventually, the show joined the channel's regular schedule and aired there from 1998 to 2001, after which the show was moved to Nickelodeon.

During the show's run on Cartoon Network, newly-animated commercial bumpers featuring the characters, animated by Primal Screen, were used.
