CartoonNetwork has a unique place in the hearts of children who grew up in the 1990s, and after Warner Bros. announced their much-discussed merger on Tuesday, supporters began using the hashtag #RIPCartoonNetwork on Twitter. However, there is no cause for alarm because the platform isn’t really “gone.” Here is what is taking place to it.
Another rumor that the children’s channel will permanently close on October 1 earlier this year caused a lot of uncertainty and concern among viewers.
Although the earlier rumors were untrue, Warner Bros. Animation and Cartoon Network Studio are now joining together as part of a “Strategic Restructuring of The Organization”
What Is Happening to Cartoon Network Studios?
Definitely not going away, Cartoon Network is joining forces with Warner Bros. Animation and Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe in the most recent merger.
Under a single division, the three labels will continue to be different. According to reports, the combination won’t change the kind of content each brand produces.
The announcement follows the disclosure that 26% of the workers at Warner Bros. Television Group were let go of animated, scripted, and unscripted programming.
In all, 125 jobs were lost as a result of the change.
Concerned Fans Trend ‘RIP Cartoon Network’
Many fans believed they would soon be saying goodbye to their favorite channel due to false information regarding the network closing. ‘RIP Cartoon Network’ became a hot topic on Twitter as a result.
“RIP Cartoon Network,” read one tweet. We appreciate the wonderful memories and the amazing childhood we had as 90s kids.
Another person remarked, “RIP Cartoon Network; truly the GOAT of childhood cartoons.”
Another tweet was added to the ones above, saying: “RIP Cartoon Network. No matter what anyone says, they have enjoyed the best run since the 1990s. They had the most all-time greats and the best lineup.
Details of Warner Bros. Merger
According to Variety, the production would remain the same despite the Warner Bros. merger because Cartoon Network Studios “continues to generate an original animated fare.”
Because so many talented people were fired during the merging process, some opponents are concerned about the network’s future.
