The 1992–2004 Cartoon Network logo as a production logo was first used on Space Ghost Coast to Coast, premiered in April 15, 1994.

This logo has many on-screen logo variants throughout its usage, most notably the Cartoon Cartoons "Ripple" endtag which was used on episodes of Cartoon Network shows, pilots, and films that were produced from October 22, 1999 to November 10, 2016. The said endtag was first used on Johnny Bravo episode "Galaxy Boy / Damien’s Day Out / Noir Johnnyand" and the last Cartoon Network original series to use the Ripple endtag is Ben 10 2016 reboot. The last Cartoon Network movie to use the 1999–2016 Ripple endtag or in general, Cartoon Network Productions logo, however, is Regular Show: The Movie, released in August 14, 2015.

The Ripple endtag itself, one of the commonly used endtag that feature the 1992 Cartoon Network logo, however, has also variants and underwent changes throughout its 17-year usage, such as:

  • Parent company byline was changed from "A Time Warner Company" to "An AOL Time Warner Company" in 2001. The version with the AOL Time Warner byline was used until 2003.
  • Service Mark (SM) symbol, located at the center-right of 1992–2004 Cartoon Network logo, was changed to Trade Mark (TM) symbol in late 2014. The version with the Trade Mark symbol was used in the last two years of usage of the Ripple endtag (October 28, 2014–November 10, 2016) starting with Over the Garden Wall and last used on Ben 10 2016 reboot, with this version of the Ripple endtag was also used on January 21, 2019 due to the credits error on Cartoon Network airing of Steven Universe episode "Change Your Mind".
  • On DreamWorks Dragons, the endtag uses the music from the credits and inverted version of the 1992 CN logo, has a map background, parent company byline and Service Mark symbol are in black text, and circles do not appear behind the logo.

In terms of years of production of a particular show, the 1992–2004 Cartoon Network as the production logo is last used on Roll No. 21 in 2018. Strangely in January 21, 2019, the 1999–2016 Ripple endtag appeared on Cartoon Network airing of the Steven Universe episode "Change Your Mind", despite the fact that the "Exploding Blocks" endtag is now being used during that time (this is because it used the credits for "We Need to Talk" episode (which was produced in 2015 according to the credits) instead of the credits for "Change Your Mind"). This is the longest Cartoon Network Productions logo to be used, having used for 24 years, 6 months and 9 days, and 3 decades (6 years of the 1990s decade (1994–1999) and all 10 years of the 2000s and 2010s decade (2000–2019)) from its debut on Space Ghost Coast to Coast in April 1994 to the credits error of Cartoon Network airing of Steven Universe episode "Change Your Mind" in January 2019.

November 10, 2016 (United States and Exploding Blocks endtag)

The 2010 version of the Cartoon Network checkerboard logo as a production logo was first used on an Indian animated film Sons of Ram, released on November 2, 2012.

Four years later, it was used on the 2016 Exploding Blocks endtag which debuted on a Regular Show episode The Key to the Universe. This endtag replaced the 1999–2016 Cartoon Cartoons "Ripple" endtag and is used on episodes of Cartoon Network shows, pilots, and films that were produced and distributed from November 10, 2016 to April 9, 2021. Unlike its predecessor "Ripple" endtag, the Exploding Blocks endtag does not have a parent company byline below the logo.

Since April 2019, the Cartoon Network Productions logo is no longer on episodes of Cartoon Network original series, pilots, and films that were produced, released, and distributed in the United States due to the dissolution of Turner Broadcasting System on March 4, 2019 which removed all references to Turner Broadcasting including this division and also resulted on the transfer of Cartoon Network's parent company from Turner to Warner Bros. (with the last CN original series to use the said endtag or in general, Cartoon Network Productions logo, is Victor and Valentino and the first CN original series to not use the Exploding Blocks endtag is Mao Mao: Heroes of Pure Heart, while the first CN movie not to use the CNP logo is Steven Universe: The Movie). As a result, they simply end with the Cartoon Network Studios logo.

Although the Exploding Blocks endtag is no longer used CN original series, pilots, and films that were produced, released, and distributed in the United States since April 2019, the said endtag was later used on Elliott from Earth, premiered in the United Kingdom on March 6, 2021 and in the United States on March 29, 2021.
