Cartoon Network (Spanish: Cartoon Network Latinoamérica y Brasil, Portuguese: Cartoon Network América Latina e Brasil) is a cable television channel, distributed by the Time Warner-owned Cartoon Network for the Latin American region and the Caribbean. It is divided into four feeds, all originating from its central headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia. Three are in Spanish (Mexico, Argentina and the rest of Latin America in Colombian time), and one is in Portuguese for Brazil.

It primarily airs cartoons and animated programming, marketed towards children and teens. Operated in Latin America by Turner Broadcasting System Latin America, it began broadcasting on April 30, 1993 as the first children-oriented cable channel available in all of Latin America. Argentina and Mexico had previously launched children's cable channels (The Big Channel and Cablín in Argentina and ZAZ in Mexico, all of which are now defunct), but they were only available in their respective countries.

Programming[edit]

The channel primarily airs shows and animated series, both original to Cartoon Network and others that have been acquired from outside networks. 10 of the 15 most popular shows amongst children aged 6 to 10 years old are broadcast by Cartoon Network Latin America, including The Powerpuff Girls, Dexter's Laboratory, Cow and Chicken, Johnny Bravo, among others. Older franchises like Scooby-Doo, Tom & Jerry, and Looney Tunes are also broadcast, as well as popular global franchises like Pokémon and original series such as the Ben 10 franchise and Adventure Time. Cartoon Network Latin America also aired original productions and live-action series such as La CQ (first original Mexican live-action series), Monica's Gang (based on the popular Brazilian comics) and Mr. Young. Recently, the channel acquired Digimon Fusion and Power Rangers Megaforce in a partnership with Saban Brands and both series premiered in the channel in May 2014.[1] & [2]

Cartoon Network Brazil[edit]

In Brazil, the channel is the most watched in the pay TV category, often rivaling Discovery Kids in audience shares. It shares most of the programming of the Latin American networks, though differs as it is in Portuguese via either dubbing or subtitles, and features locally-originated content to meet local content regulations, such as Monica's Gang, Gui & Estopa, Sítio do Picapau Amarelo, Haunted Tales and Jorel's Brother. Content in the network's programming is also edited to meet local mores and regulations, with some Toonami block and Adult Swim programming not airing on the channel because of those regulations. Viewers have also found the content ratings strict, with Adventure Time under the "12+ anos" rating and Regular Show at "10+ anos", though both programs usually rate as a high "TV-PG" under the American TV Parental Guidelines.[3]

Cartoon Network took part in the animation of the film Patoruzito and its sequel Patoruzito 2.
