Cartoon Planet: "Live from Cartoon Planet" bumpers


"Live from Cartoon Planet" Bumpers
Screencap.
Screencap.
Status Partially Found

During the original 1995 run of Cartoon Planet, when it aired on both TBS and Cartoon Network, was an hour long, and was made to host various cartoons from the Turner library, it included bumpers to bookend the commercial breaks.

History

The bumpers themselves were recorded live and were voiced by either Andy Merrill (as Brak), Don Kennedy, or associate producer Jefferson Clay, who would open with "This is Jefferson, reporting live from Cartoon Planet..." Eventually all of the host segments of Cartoon Planet were edited and compiled into half hour versions that omitted the cartoons and replaced the live bumpers with pre-recorded ones (the same ones were played over and over).

Surfaced Content

The original live bumpers have mostly been lost to time. However, some have been uploaded onto Youtube in a bumper compilation which can be found below.

I'll add the link to the article then I suppose. Also, if you happen to have any more of those, CaptainBZarre, let me know and I'll put those on here too.

I think there's some stuff from when it aired on TBS in there as well. I didn't include the segments because I only upload Cartoon Network content, but I can put those up for you :)

Hey, Reynard, I know you're probably sick of just seeing the word "bumper" at this point, but

do you think it'd better if someone just took articles like this and made a page about CN bumpers like with Nick and PBS? Cause strangely, there's no page for just CN bumpers in general.

Maybe that would be a more appropriate place for this. I'm the one who created this article (It was the first I've ever done) and I'm not sure if I put it in the right place or not. Technically, even though these bumpers were for a cartoon show on the Cartoon Network, they were not really "animated". I mean, they just had images sort of flashing on the screen of the shows logo and a voice over that you could hear. I don't know if it belongs more under the "Lost Animation" banner or not.

If there was a section reserved just for bumpers, I would probably write an article about the early 90's TNT Monstervision Claymation-style Moon bumpers too. A bunch of those are on YouTube but there are tons of them still lost in space somewhere.

"Lost advertising and interstitial material" is the category you're looking for (which has already been added to this article)
