When this humble Webmaster was informed that a sign-off clip for the Cartoon Network existed, he didn't believe it at first. It was originally assumed that this clip was from a special CN preview of some kind, for afterwards at 2100 hours comes the TNT (Turner Network Television) network and a lead-in to an Elvis Presley movie. The Webmaster later received an E-mail saying that the clip was recorded somewhere in Europe or in England, where CN and TNT shared a single channel at the time.

The webmaster's initial exposure to CN was 'way back in 1993, the year after CN's launch, while he was vacationing with friends in Myrtle Beach, SC. It was on all night then, and what it was is what its off-shoot network Boomerang is now, predominantly classic Saturday-morning shows from the famous Hanna-Barbera animation studio which cable TV mogul Ted Turner acquired a few years earlier. As the 1990s progressed, CN developed more and more original animated programming (Dexter's Laboratory, Ed Edd n Eddy, The Powerpuff Girls, etc) which gradually replaced the old Hanna-Barbera shows. In the early 2000s, CN began Adult Swim, a collection of edgier animated shows that originally ran Sunday nights after 12 midnight for an hour or so. Adult Swim currently runs every night from 9:00 to 6:00 Eastern Time.
