Launched:  October 17, 1997

Teletoon was licensed by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission after a related application for a channel to be called "Fun TV" had been denied. The channel was launched on October 17, 1997, with the first episode of Caillou. At the time of its launch, Teletoon showed more mature fare as the day progressed, with a strong commitment to diverse and international programming and the ability to air most of the material uncut. All of its bumpers were made by Cuppa Coffee Studios.

Teletoon was originally known as "The Animation Station", with "It's Unreal!" as its secondary slogan and "It's Time to Twist!" as its alternate slogan from 1999 to 2000. The latter slogan was used during the channel's pre-launch, but it would not be used again until 1998; in 2000, it would become the channel's only slogan. In 1999, Teletoon started airing bumpers with its first mascot "Teletina". These bumpers were made by Spin Productions in Toronto. Several more bumpers using CGI animation made by Guru Studio subsequently premiered on the channel.

In 2015, Teletoon's primary colour was changed to green. From September 1, 2015 to fall 2016, original programming from the American channel was moved over to its Canadian counterpart. Around the same time, several programs airing on Teletoon Retro, which closed down on the same date, began airing on Teletoon. Teletoon would also premiere new original programming from Cartoon Network's sister channel, Boomerang. On April 1, 2019, following the relaunch of Action as Adult Swim, Teletoon's adult-oriented programs were moved to Adult Swim; with Teletoon now airing family-oriented programming full-time. However, some adult-oriented programming may air occasionally on the channel during the nighttime hours.
