In 2011, Turner Broadcasting System Europe had announced that it would roll out its UK-based preschoolers' channel Cartoonito across Europe, the Middle East and Africa, increasing the brand's distribution to 125 million homes in 112 territories. On Cartoon Network Arabic, Cartoonito was launched as a morning block broadcast every day starting from 4 September 2011. However, the block was phased out in 1 April 2014, with some of its shows no longer available (although Baby Looney Tunes broadcasts on Boomerang HD and LazyTown airs on CN Arabic early in the morning).

However, the Cartoonito block returned on 24 March 2019 with 4 shows, 1 returning is Baby Looney Tunes with 3 new additions to Cartoonito which are Grizzy and the Lemmings, Pat the Dog and Fireman Sam.
