Cartoonito is an American programming block that premiered on September 13, 2021 on Cartoon Network. The brand name is also used as a dedicated section on the streaming service HBO Max. Cartoonito targets a preschool audience around 2–6 years old.[1]

Background

Cartoonito is a brand name currently used by AT&T's WarnerMedia for a collection of television networks and programming blocks internationally including a United Kingdom and Ireland channel.

Previous programming attempts (1996–2006)

Educational block (1996–2005)

In 1996, Cartoon Network decided to create a Sunday morning block of preschool programs. The series featured Big Bag, a live-action/puppet television program by the Children's Television Workshop, Small World, and Cave Kids. However, Big Bag ran until 1998, while Small World ran until 2002.

Once Big Bag left Cartoon Network's line-up in 2001, Baby Looney Tunes, along with Pecola, Sitting Ducks, and Hamtaro, filled that line-up in 2003. The block moved to weekday mornings afterward.

Tickle-U (2005–2006)

Tickle-U was Cartoon Network's first attempt at an official weekday-morning preschool programming block, premiering on August 22, 2005, and aired from 9 to 11 a.m. ET/PT.

Programs on the line-up included two Teletoon/Treehouse series: Harry and His Bucket Full of Dinosaurs and Gerald McBoing-Boing, acquired British shows: Gordon the Garden Gnome, Peppa Pig, Little Robots, and Yoko! Jakamoko! Toto!. Firehouse Tales was the only original series (produced by Warner Bros. Animation). The block featured two CGI characters as hosts: named Pipoca and Henderson. Unlike their original counterparts, the British-acquired shows featured an American voice cast.

After Tickle-U closed in 2006, some of its programming still reran on Cartoon Network on weekday mornings, until 2007. They’ve also reran on Cartoonito in the UK.

History

Launch (2021)

On February 5, 2021, Tom Ascheim stated in an interview with Kidscreen that Cartoon Network would expand its offerings to include series aimed at family audiences, girls, and preschoolers, in order to compete with some other preschool blocks like Disney Junior, PBS Kids and Nick Jr..[2] The interview ended with the acquisition of the broadcast rights to Thomas & Friends: All Engines Go, a reboot of the original Thomas & Friends series.

These plans culminated on February 17, when it was announced that WarnerMedia's international preschool brand Cartoonito would come to Cartoon Network in the United States (in addition to a streaming component on HBO Max).[3] Over 20 series are expected to be featured at its 2021 launch.[4]

In March 2021, the website for the block was made.[5]

On June 14, 2021, new idents of the block appeared on videos (which includes Esme and Roy, Mush-Mush and the Mushables, Care Bears: Unlock the Magic, and Love Monster) on Cartoonito's YouTube channel, and a newsletter was announced, with a new banner and avatar on the Cartoonito YouTube Channel in July.[6] A trailer for the block was released on July 29, 2021.[7] It was revealed that the mascots for the block use they/them pronouns.[8] Sneak previews of Cartoonito’s programming appeared on Cartoon Network in August.

On August 16, 2021, it was announced the block would launch on September 13, 2021 (with Baby Looney Tunes being the first show to air). On Cartoon Network, the block runs for 8 hours (6:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.) ET/PT) on weekdays and 2 hours (6:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. ET/PT) on weekends.[9]
