Cartoon Network is an American cable television network owned by Turner Broadcasting System which airs animated programming. The channel was launched on October 1, 1992, after Turner purchased the animation studio Hanna-Barbera Productions in 1991. It was originally a 24-hour outlet for classic animation properties from the Turner Broadcasting libraries and was all-ages-oriented which it broadcasts in time-sharing with TCM, but now the channel targets children and teens (about ages 7–15) and older teens and adults with mature content during its late night daypart Adult Swim, which is treated as a separate entity for promotional and ratings purposes.

The network broadcasts shows ranging from action to animated comedy. Original series started in 1993 with The Moxy Show, along with Cartoon Cartoons original programs such as Dexter's Laboratory, Cow and Chicken, I Am Weasel, The Powerpuff Girls, Ed, Edd n Eddy, Johnny Bravo, The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy, Codename: Kids Next Door, and Courage the Cowardly Dog. Their current original programs are Adventure Time, Regular Show, The Amazing World of Gumball, and the Ben 10 series.

Olivia Olson voiced as Marceline.

Marceline the Vampire Queen is a main character in the American animated television series Adventure Time created by Pendleton Ward. She is voiced by Olivia Olson in most appearances (pictured), by Ava Acres as a child and by Cloris Leachman as an old woman. Marceline is a fun-loving 1,000-year-old trickster vampire queen. The character makes her debut in the first season episode "Evicted!" and functions as an antagonist, forcing Finn (voiced by Jeremy Shada) and Jake (voiced by John DiMaggio) from their home. Marceline has been critically acclaimed and is popular with fans of Adventure Time. Ward himself has stated that Marceline is his favorite character in the series because he does not know everything about her history and backstory, which he noted adds a mysterious element to her character. Despite the positivity, the episode "What Was Missing" became somewhat controversial because of an allegedly implied past relationship between Princess Bubblegum (voiced by Hynden Walch) and Marceline.
