Cartoon Network TOO (CN Too for short) is a spin-off television channel, that airs a mixture of original and modern classic cartoons from the "Cartoon Cartoons" umbrella of programming until May 24, 2007 where the channel shows the same shows from Cartoon Network UK, every day at 11pm on Cartoon Network and also airs archived cartoons. It launched in the UK and Ireland on April 24 2006, on Sky Digital channel 602 and Virgin Media channel 732 from May 24, 2007. The channel broadcasts between 3am-7pm daily. The channel timeshared with TCM 2, another UK-only spin-off channel from TCM until May 24, 2007 because the channel extented 24 hours with a same new identity as Cartoon Network UK.

History

The channel launched late at around 10.15am with Dexter's Laboratory and was followed by Cow and Chicken at 10.30am. Then Wacky Races at 11am.

As of 24 May 2007 the channel replaced Toonami and also went from 3am-7pm to 24 hours. The channel was also said to be bigger and better.

In June 2007 Cartoon Network TOO was launched on Top Up TV Anytime

Technical Faults and interruptions

On July 27 2006, CN Too, along with Cartoon Network, Boomerang, Toonami, Boomerang +1 and TCM, suffered a major technical fault due to a power cut in Soho, London. This was due to the energy supplier EDF cutting power from different parts of Soho one at a time for four hours, purposely, due to the inability as the 2006 European heat wave had hit Turner Broadcasting System Europe. The power cut caused a mix up of channels ("i.e." Cartoon Network being broadcast on Boomerang and Toonami, with Boomerang being broadcast on CN Too). Boomerang +1 was off air for some time, while TCM, reverted between TCM France and other programming during the times it was able to provide a service. TCM 2 didn't have a power cut because of its downtimes of timesharing. Most advertising was suspended and several of the channels' websites were offline also. However, those who could still receive the channels had a backup transmission played out, making people curious as to why the incorrect programmes were played out when compared to the EPG CN Too and Boomerang were showing episodes of The Flintstones. These backups where played out with a scrolling message which said "We apologise for the disruption to this service. This is due to technical difficulties. We will resume normal programming as soon as possible" in multiple languages. Whilst most channels returned to the air relatively quickly, it took longer for CN Too to resume programming and it was also joked on various animation based forums by Toonami UK viewers, many of whom have made note of their disdain for the direction in which Turner took the Brand in the UK, that the backup transmission was more entertaining, purely on the basis that there's no live action aired during the black out. The idents on Toonami which aired between shows during the black-out displayed the message "Sorry! Toonami is broken, we'll be right back as soon as we fix it.". These idents have since been re-used in disclaimers warning viewers not to try stunts on various shows at home.
