CHECK it (also known as It's A Fun Thing in Asia) is a new identity for the channel that was introduced on May 29, 2010, along with a new theme and new bumpers. The network's current branding, designed by Brand New School, makes heavy use of the black and white checkerboard which made up the network's first logo, as well as various CMYK color variations and various patterns. In May 2013 the UP NEXT bumpers were revamped to be a spinning cube with the character designed like during Cartoon Network's 20th Anniversary with colorful textures. On June 1, 2015, the bumpers were revamped, gained more gradients, and became known as CHECK it 4.0 [1].

From this era, it is a transition period from using 3D graphics to a more more flatter design with vivid colors. CHECK it 1.0 is the last era to use such 3D graphics.

It is concurrent with the Dimensional era on some other international feeds. The United States feed on June 14, 2016 made Dimensional the successor of CHECK it 4.0.

Check It 1.0

The Check It 1.0 is the first version of the CHECK it era to be introduced. It debuted on May 29, 2010 not long after the Adventure Time premiere. It featured CMYK styles resembling Checkerboard. The next bumpers revamped to be 3 random clips in 3 checkers and sometimes a dynamic next bumper when the character(s) interact within the checkerboard. People highly criticized the Next bumpers because the speaker is always dull, not announcing what show and if it's a new show, new episode or a movie. Later on, Cartoon Network have to revise the speaker to say the next bumpers.

Furthermore, the bumpers of this version are to be random things such as the nose bumper and the CARTOON NETWORK bumpers. In which wacky things in each letter. In the Canada version of the CARTOON NETWORK bumpers, the music has to be finished compared to the US, it was cut. In Asia, the slogan was titled "It's A Fun Thing!" but the slogan was changed into "Are You CN What Where Sayin'?" later on.
