The Great International Toon-In was a set of six 14-hour cartoon marathons that were seen on six Turner entertainment networks around the world on Black Friday on November 26, 1993. The Toon-In was seen on TBS, TNT and Cartoon Network in the United States, TNT and Cartoon Network in Latin America, and TNT/Cartoon Network in Europe, reaching more 55 countries. It is the successor to the previous year's Great American Toon-In.

The U.S. marathons lasted from 3:00am to 5:00pm; TBS hosted the Bugs-a-Thon, TNT hosted Cartoon All-Stars, and Cartoon Network hosted Cartoons A to Z.[1]

The Toon-In was notable for being the debut of the character of the first Cartoon Network original program, The Moxy Show, Moxy, the first live computer-generated cartoon character. Voiced by comedian Bobcat Goldthwait, Moxy was rendered in real time by a motion-capture process, and intermission bumpers featured him communicating with children from a TV set.[2]
