The Powerpuff Girls, Courage the Cowardly Dog, and The Flinstones are some of the many shows that I watched growing up on the Cartoon Network channel. But kids now won’t be able to enjoy the entertainment on the channel as Cartoon Network Studios is being shut down after 30 years.
According to Zee News, the channel is being merged with Warner Bros. Animation as one entity under the brand name of Warner Bros. to produce digital content.

The Cartoon Network layoffs are so sad to see. I hope talent such as that at CN always has a place to create

The organization is yet to announce if the OG cartoon channel is really shutting down or not. But there have been major layoffs. I hope it doesn’t. We have so many memories of it.
