The original American channel began broadcasting on October 1, 1992 with the Bugs Bunny short "Rhapsody Rabbit," being its first-ever aired program. Cartoon Network originally served as a 24-hour outlet for classic animation properties from the Turner Broadcasting libraries.
Cartoon Network is mainly youth-oriented, but shares channel space with a late-night adult-oriented channel skein called Adult Swim. In recent years, despite the name, Cartoon Network began airing more live-action programming, including movies and series and has even began broadcasting in 1080i High Definition. The number of live-action series has decreased since 2010; however, this is largely due to the failure of their live-action reality show block entitled "CN Real."
There are also many variants of Cartoon Network around the world.
