Cartoon Cartoon Fridays (partially found segments; 1999–2007)
|This article has been tagged as Needing work due to its lack of organization and good layout.|
"Cartoon Cartoon Fridays", also known as CCF and later simply retitled "Fridays", was a highly successful programming block on Cartoon Network for their original series. It lasted from June 11, 1999 to February 23, 2007. Although many episodes have been recovered over the years, others remain lost.

November 17, 2000
This was the premiere night of the short-lived series Sheep in the Big City. Edd (from Ed, Edd, n Eddy) hosted a unique night that was never aired again. Throughout the program, the title character of Johnny Bravo as well as Chicken (from Cow & Chicken) harassed Edd to the point where he had to call for Baboon (from I Am Weasel) to beat up the trouble makers. This is one notable CCF that is missing from YouTube user ccffreak's account. A few very brief clips of this night can be seen in the CCF theme from 2002. Also, a small clip appeared in a fan made video, but it is hard to hear due to narrator talking over it. On September 16, 2015. Lost Media Wiki user 'Nodog' uploaded the Edd segments in full.
When CCF introduced character hosts in the summer of 2000, Eustace (from Courage the Cowardly Dog) was one of the first to host. He hosted on a number of occasions throughout the summer and fall of that year. Later in 2001, he hosted a new night with his wife, Muriel. This was due to his original voice actor's retirement.
Christmas in July Party
The Christmas in July Party aired July 20, 2001. It used all the same bumpers as the Christmas Party special in 2000, only with Baboon yelling "in July" when necessary. It is notable for airing the pilot of Kids Next Door "No P in the Ool".
YouTuber & Cartoon Network archivist Captain B. Zarre uploaded the full broadcast in May 2017. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FTvB-SUqq_s
Edd Checks the Schedule (ads)
For the fall of 2000, there was a new series of ads which featured Edd checking who was going to be hosting the following week. The only one of these ads that ever resurfaced were for the Halloween Party special and the block from the week that Sheep in the Big City premiered. The remaining advertisements have yet to be found.
"Cartoon Network's Fridays" Host Segments
In October 2003, Cartoon Cartoon Fridays was rebranded as "The New Fridays" and given new host segments, featuring live-action hosts Tommy & Nzinga. Unlike its predecessor, Fridays host segments changed every week, meaning that it's host segments are much more difficult to find than the CCF host segments. Many of the Fridays host segments are currently lost and missing from YouTube, although they have been mentioned on forums such as ToonZone. However, a few segments from Summer 2004 have surfaced and were uploaded in a compilation video.
"Summer Fridays" Segments
Beginning on May 23rd, 2003, CCF adopted a temporary look called "Summer Fridays" that ran from 7 pm until 12 am every Friday night. Unlike CCF, these segments didn't contain a host. Very little footage exists online of the block; CCFfreak, a YouTube user who archives Cartoon Cartoon Fridays host segments, stated that he didn't like the block as soon as he saw the first host segment and only has the first half or so of a KND episode from the first night saved. However, more footage has begun to be preserved; CN archivist SpongeBranded uploaded a few host segments from the block in November 2016, and Captain B. Zarre has uploaded the intro and a few host segments of the "Fridays" block that used very similar bumpers.
