Did you know that Warner Bros. Consumer Products used to be the merchandising licensor of Cartoon Network characters, series and brand? It wasn't until 2005 that Cartoon Network decided to establish their own merchandising division. Whereas Warner Bros. Consumer Products continues licensing the classic Hanna-Barbera material such as The Flintstones, Scooby-Doo and Yogi Bear, Cartoon Network Enterprises exclusively licenses their own original library consisting of the likes of The Powerpuff Girls, Adventure Time, Regular Show, Codename: Kids Next Door, Dexter's Laboratory, Johnny Bravo, etc. Both Cartoon Network and Warner Bros. continue sharing merchandising licensing of the CN Originals internationally.

When I found out that Cartoon Network Enterprises also licenses LazyTown, the BRB Internacional catalog and the LEGO brand, I thought that, alongside their own original in-house library, CNE could also own a huge variety of intellectual property catalogs, character brands and licensing rights for numerous third-party properties just like how Dreamworks Animation established Dreamworks Classics for this same purpose. This is my fan-list of catalogs, character brands and licensing rights that Cartoon Network would dearly acquire for their library based on my thoughts:


  • Dark Horse Entertainment catalog (The Mask, Hellboy, Beasts of Burden, Timecop, BPRD, Sin City, Tank Girl, Boris the Bear, etc.)
