Before Cartoon Network started broadcasting on October 1, 1992, this logo was used in its marketing to cable operators and advertisers.[1] The middle of the logo could be edited to feature all the characters (1 at a time) from shows that were planned to be aired on the network. It had many color variations including the text, as shown on some parts of the presentation reel. This logo was designed by J.J. Sedelmaier Productions, who also animated earlier episodes of Beavis and Butt-Head, as well as the pilot/first episode of Harvey Birdman, Attorney At Law.

Launched:  October 1, 1992

On October 1, 1992, Cartoon Network was officially launched and debuted its now-iconic logo, featuring a black and white 7x2 square grid with each letters of the company's name on it set in Eagle Bold. The logo was designed by Hatmaker, a division of Corey McPherson Nash. This logo still appears at the bottom of the Cartoon Network website, and it was also used on merchandising products until 2017 and as a production logo from December 5, 1993 to January 21, 2019.

Launched:  June 14, 2004

On June 14, 2004, Cartoon Network launched a new on-air look, and a new logo replaced the one that had been used since the network launched nearly 12 years earlier. The new logo's design was made up of two black and white cubes with the network's initials ("CN", borrowed from the previous logo), and the network's full name underneath it, also in the same typeface as the previous logo. The development of the new on-air identity was led in-house in association with Animal Logic in Sydney, Australia.

May 29, 2010

On May 29, 2010, Cartoon Network introduced an updated logo and on-air look, created by its in-house design team and Brand New School. The new slogan "CHECK it" was also introduced (possibly a play on the design of the network's former "checkerboard" logo). The checkerboard theme is used extensively in the new look. It was first used in bumpers featuring Chewbacca to promote the third-season finale of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. The new logo was later brought to various European countries in November 2010, then to Asia in October 2011 and Latin America in January 2012.
