Cartoon Network is an American based cable and satellite television channel that is owned by the Turner Broadcasting System division of WarnerMedia, itself being a subsidiary of AT&T. The channel airs primarily animated programming, ranging from action to animated comedy. It was founded by Betty Cohen and launched on October 1, 1992.

It is primarily aimed at children and teenagers between the ages of 7–16, but can be watched by other age groups. It also targets older teens and adults with mature content during its late night daypart Adult Swim, which is treated as a separate entity for promotional purposes and as a separate channel by Nielsen for ratings purposes.[1] A Spanish language audio track for select programs is accessible via SAP; some cable and satellite companies offer the Spanish feed as a separate channel.

As of February 2015, Cartoon Network is available to approximately 96.4 million pay television households (82.8% of households with television) in the United States.[2]

We Bare Bears premiered on the channel with a BearBomb on July 27, 2015 at 6:30 PM EST, debuting with the episodes "Our Stuff" and "Viral Video".

Cartoon Network has three headquarters: one in Atlanta, Georgia, another in New York City, New York and Los Angeles, California.
