And even though one single article cannot do justice as to why we'll always love Cartoon Network, let's try to sum up as to why CN will always remain so close to our hearts.

And God bless them for giving us this awesome song from Adventure Time.

2. Years later, we can still watch these cartoons as adults.

As kids, we remember grown ups from our families occasionally watching cartoons with us. Back then, we couldn't understand how grown ups too could enjoy watching our beloved cartoons.

But now, as adults, we finally understand their allure.

Be it The Looney Tunes show or The Tom & Jerry show, it's amazing how they're equally funny even when we see them as young adults.

3. Cartoons broadcast by Cartoon Network are often way ahead of their time.

The best thing about Cartoon Network has been the fact that it has never doubted the intelligence of its audience.

No matter what the age group, it has always broadcast shows that were not only visually stunning, but had an amazing storyline as well. Jonny Quest, Swat Kats, Pinky and the Brain; the list is endless.

The best part is that while they were super entertaining when we were kids, these cartoons grew up with us and acquired a whole new meaning when we became adults.

4. It has given us some of the best catchphrases and characters ever.

Be it The Mask, Courage the cowardly dog or Swat Kats, Cartoon Network's cartoon has given us some of the best catchphrases and characters ever.

Dialogues and characters, we still remember till date.

Recently, Cartoon Network completed 20 glorious years and decided to give ScoopWhoop a pleasant surprise. By dropping in!

Such was the frenzy, that all of us queued up to meet our favourite cartoon character.

And now, after relentlessly giving us nothing but the best cartoons for the past 20 years, Cartoon Network has come up with a new show.
