    Watching all these duck videos on YouTube lately, I'm suddenly reminded, does anyone else remember a show that was on CN for a short while in the early 2000s, I'm pretty sure was called SITTING DUCKS? It wasn't a CN-original, but it was still an interesting series nonetheless, about a city where all the citizens were ducks, and the outskirts of town were inhabited by alligators that were always wanting to sneak into town and eat the ducks, but one of the alligators was actually secretly best friends with one of the ducks, so he'd help them thwart the rest of the alligators attempts and efforts. I even remember one particular episode where even the best friend alligator had to admit he occasionally had a hunger for ducks, and went into like AA-like withdrawls to the point that he started wearing a wristband that he'd snap on his wrist anytime he got hungry for duck.

    Actually, now that you mention it, I do remember it just vaguely. It's one of those things that I haven't even remotely thought of for years until you brought it up. I think I remember it being on CN around 2004-ish. I just kind of recall a CGI alligator and a white duck that looked a bit like the main character from Duckman. And I remember the theme song sounded kind of like this:


    That's all I remember about it though.

    Yeah, that's it, lol. Matter of fact, found the intro!


    Come to think of it, there's full episodes on YouTube. . . . I probably should have just checked there first, lol.

    So apparently, when Cow and Chicken used to air on Cartoon Cartoon Fridays back in the day (2000-01), unlike the other shows, it tended to have its opening theme removed. Is there a reason why, other than being cut just for time? I mean, if you're a fan of the show, wouldn't you like to see the intro every time?

    I think because during that time, COW AND CHICKEN was played in a shuffle format like old Hanna-Barbera or Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies were since they had split up C&C and I AM WEASEL into separate shows the year before, so they would just randomize three segments in during the half-hour as opposed to playing the show in its original format of two C&C segments and its accompanying IMW segment.

    Wow, check this out, this is amazing:


    You can tell that a lot of passion and effort was put into this, and not only is it actually really well done for a fan film, but some of the young actors were really good in their parts: the guy playing Eddy was the best, he was totally spot on in terms of voice, inflections, mannerisms, attitude, and all points in between; the guy playing Ed was pretty good too.

    Thinking back on old CN shows, very few of them even bothered with continuity of any kind (ED, EDD N EDDY's continuity was actually pretty impressive for a kids cartoon), but I think the one that perhaps had the worst continuity of any kind was Billy and Mandy. Sure, there were some examples of continuity nods, like Nergal and Aunt Sis getting married and birthing Son of Nergal, but I mean like take Grim for example: either he could eat and drink with no problems, or he couldn't eat or drink at all because he had no stomach. Also, I remember Grim would shower in the morning, but there was one occasion where he apparently had never bathed before but really enjoyed it. And take a look at this:

    In less than a minute, Billy goes from knowing what brains are to not knowing what brains are.

    Ah....old Cartoon Network. One of my favorite Cartoon Cartoons shows were Courage the Cowardly Dog and Powerpuff Girls! I LOVE Courage because of his signature screams, the story and the jokes (even though it freaked me out as a little kid...but still it was enjoyable to watch)! Powerpuff Girls on the other hand kicked BUTT! Those fast-paced fights were incredible! Plus the jokes, story and the Narrator were amazing! Sucks that the new Powerpuff Girls isn't created by Craig McCracken....

    I remember I was 15 and in 9th grade when Toonami was originally canceled. You have no idea how salty I was.

    Toonami was my home channel back in the day. I use to rush home from school to finish my HW to watch "Dragon! Dragon! Rock the Dragon! DRAGON BALL Z!!!!!!" everyday at 5 and 5:30pm! Ahhh....the memories.

    1) Yeah, too dark.

    2) Because it's acceptable in Japan? IDK.

    3) Uh, wow. That's just...ugly.

    4) That image is actually from deviantART originally. How this got on eBay though, I cannot fathom.

    Ladies and gentlemen, may I present to you one of CN's oldest website games! Also twenty years old, as a matter of fact!

    This may actually be the first CN online game, and I remember it vividly:

    I feel like I might have played that game once... In spite of me not being the biggest fan of Cow and Chicken.

    I've actually never played that one, but yep, the intro screen gives it away as one of those old downloadable games from way long ago.

    The only Cow and Chicken games I remember were Bus Stop Blitz, the Christmas in July one, and if counting I Am Weasel, Beat the Heat. That one was nonstop fun.
