Cartoon Network: Block Party is an arcade-style video game for Game Boy Advance developed by Majesco and released in the United States on August 5, 2004 and in Europe and Oceania on September 15, 2004. Cartoon Network: Block Party had a very long development cycle: it began development in 1994 as a Super Nintendo Entertainment System title, but development transitioned to the Nintendo 64DD, then to the Nintendo 64, and finally to the Game Boy Advance. It features characters from Cartoon Network original animated series such as Johnny Bravo, Ed Edd n Eddy, Courage the Cowardly Dog, and Cow and Chicken.

Gameplay[edit]

The gameplay is similar to Nintendo's Mario Party video game series. Players can experience places from Cartoon Network shows in a board game style. They can also play up to 30 mini-games based on the Cartoon Network shows. Players can choose any of the Cartoon Network characters they like.

Plot[edit]

First, Cow and Chicken have gone to a farm, and after eating too many potatoes, their parents suggest that they have some protein. Cow and Chicken both want their favorite protein food: pork butts. In this board the player has to get four pork butts before returning to the start and winning.

Second, in the Ed, Edd n Eddy world, Eddy wants to win a skateboarding competition. Double-D doubts Eddy has a chance. The player must collect three trophies and 50 dollars before returning to the start and winning.

Then, in the world of Johnny Bravo, Johnny is trying his luck with the ladies, when Carl arrives. It turns out he has a date, and Johnny wants to help him prepare. The player must collect a pie, hair goo, a corn dog, a black shirt, and at least 50 dollars before returning to the start and winning.

Last, in Courage's world, Eustace and Muriel are trapped in the mansion of the evil Katz. Courage is in the mansion and is attempting to save them. The player must collect three spiders and 75 cobwebs before returning to the start and winning.
