    What about the recent Storks trailer that was released? Why wasn’t that mentioned?

    Looks like Cartoon Network is becoming the new Sony Pictures Animation of cable TV where all they wanna do is made nothing but a bunch of crappy reboots of their most popular TV shows of all time. It made me think about both Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon and made me realise that they are actually switching places in terms of popularity and how they are. Nickelodeon WAS the Sony Pictures Animation of cable TV with shows like Breadwinners and Sanjay and Craig and Cartoon Network was big with Adventure Time and Steven Universe. But then Nickelodeon became better with Harvey Beaks and The Loud House, but Cartoon Network became worse with Teen Titans Go and The Powerpuff Girls 2016 reboot. See what I mean?

    The only difference is that Cartoon Network has currently five good to great animated shows to hold them up from things like TTG and PPG 2016 (Steven Universe, We Bare Bears, Gumball, Regular Show, Adventure Time) while Nickelodeon currently only has two actually worth going to their network for (Harvey Beaks, The Loud House). Cartoon Network has a variety, Nicklodeon does not.
