Cartoon Network has jumped ship.

First, it started with the announcement of Wulin Warriors, which may or may not (debatably) be animation.

Then, a live-action pilot called Saul of the Mole People was announced for Adult Swim.

Now, it's final: Starting next year, the word "Cartoon" will mean nothing to this network's name. They will be airing full-fledged, live-action movies.

Yes, you heard me. This is not a joke. This is an actual commercial that aired on Cartoon Network. Their first movie on the list, Who Framed Roger Rabbit? is understandable, but look at what else they picked up:

-Small Soldiers
-The Goonies
-Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves

I heard they'll be dropping the "cartoon" part soon; they'll just be called "Network".

N.B. This is a lie.

Sounds like it's about time for an "Adult Swim Network."

I'm kinda thinking that maybe it won't be so bad. If they do live action, that means they will be buying less of the crappy flash animation cartoons and giving them their own shows. 12 oz. Mouse being a perfect example. What were the creators of this POS show thinking when they made this?

Probably something like...
-So, we want to make a show, but we don't really like ideas such as putting in any actual work, or paying for quality animators, voice actors, or even writers. What should we do?
-Well, I have a few drawings of various creatures that my 3-year old kid did, in which the only thing recognizable as a life form is that of a green mouse. Or at least I think it is a mouse.... And I guess that we could just draw lame excuses for squares in Photoshop for any extra characters that we may need.
-For voice actors; it could just be us, right? I mean, we aren't actually being filmed, it's just our voices! So, we could just say whatever into the microphones since it isn't really acting.
-Wow, sounds great! I guess for stories, we could just write about stuff like getting drunk at bars and going to porn studios. In the 13 minutes that our cartoon runs, at least 12.5 minutes will only be sickenly uncreative drinking and sex jokes.
-Wow, making a cartoon was easier than I thought! I'll tell you what we'll do: We'll use the huge paycheck from Adult Swim to hire a painter, who will come in to paint a portrait of us. We shall then hang this portrait on our wall, and everyday we shall stare at this picture and contemplate how great and original we are.

I guess their younger audience is lowering.
So they try and obtain more crowds with these movies.

Just to point out unless your watching things from the USA, which you maybe be doing, then you wont be affected.

Good old cartoon network AUS brings me such shows as initial D.

Done some web searching and found that Cartoon Network Uk dropped Adult swim ( that has all the anime) and is possibly thinking picking it up again.

So you never know :?

Are you serious?
Well, I don't think they have any English dubs for America anyways.
So it's much better.
I can just find the episodes off the good old en-ter-net.
