Cartoon Network is a Russian-Bulgarian channel, which started on October 1, 2009. It replaced the Pan-European Cartoon Network everywhere in the countries, which this version is broadcast. It is available in 3 languages: Bulgarian, Russian and English. Bulgaria and Russia have separate channels, which are used during the commercial breaks for advertising, while the main channel at that time shows commercials for the channel. As of September 2010 Cartoon Network has its Bulgarian website and as of October 2010 - its Russian website. Cartoon Network doesn't have its own English site, but uses the Pan-European Cartoon Network's site. On November 26, 2010 the channel changed its look and logo. In March 2011 the channel became 24 hours, but currently it's only available for Russia and the former countries from the Soviet Union, the other countries still have it shared with TCM from 21:00 to 6:00 (CET).
Cartoon Network Russia and Southeastern Europe launched on 1 October 2009. Its branding featured arrows with random things popping out from the logo and arrows with random stuff creating the logo.

In November 2009, Best Ed premiered, which was aired on the Pan-European version; in December 2009 Star Wars: The Clone Wars premiered, which also aired on the past version. In January 2010, Batman: The Brave and the Bold premiered, which was the first new show on the version, that hasn't aired on the Pan-European version before. Other new shows premiered during the months, like Bakugan Battle Brawlers: New Vestroia, Total Drama Island, Hero: 108.
