Cartoon Network Debuts 13 Shows, New WB Partnership
Cartoon Network also said it is launching a new partnership with Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment, both Time Warner corporate siblings, which will include a "DC Nation" programming block on the network. Starting in 2012, the trio hope to grow it into a multiplatform superheroes brand.
One of the new animated series is based on -- and carries the same name as -- DreamWorks Animation's 2010 film "How to Train Your Dragon."
With a core target of 6- to-11-year-olds, the network also said it would bring back "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" for a fourth season.
In May, the network will launch a new, updated look and spin on Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck with "The Looney Tunes Show."
Also on deck is a new series in the "Ben 10" franchise, which has been a hit on Cartoon for five years with multiple iterations and brought a successful consumer products line.
