Cartoon Planet (partially found bumpers of revival block; 2012)

Status Partially Found

In celebration of their twentieth anniversary, Cartoon Network revived Cartoon Planet as a new block that aired older archive cartoon programming that was otherwise no longer aired on Cartoon Network or its sister channel Boomerang. Like the original program with which it shares a title, it was used to air archive cartoon programming, this time non-Hanna Barbera, along with bumpers once again featuring characters from the Space Ghost franchise. This block aired on Friday evenings and initially featured primarily classic "cartoon cartoons".

Although the revival was intended for a family-friendly audience, the returning hosts Brak and Zorak, reprised by voice actors Andy Merril and C. Martin Croker, remain true to their personalities featured in the original Cartoon Planet as well as its sister show Space Ghost: Coast to Coast and spin-off The Brak Show, although Space Ghost did not appear. (A clone was featured in one bump.) Although new backgrounds were created, the character poses were similar to the original low-budget animation style used in the previous shows.

The block increasingly phased-out older programming in favor of airing recent shows, often unpopular and short-lived ones, sometimes shows that may have aired the same episode some hours earlier. It was eventually ended unceremoniously in 2014.

Some of the more popular bumpers remain available from Cartoon Network's YouTube channel, but are not viewable within all countries as a result, and some bumpers are presumably lost.

I remember my brother and I would record every new airing of this on our DVR back when this was new. Unfortunately we would delete them after we finished watching them. I wish we had known that they would be worth keeping.

Damn it...just my luck. Recorded about 12 of these early episodes when I was in the fifth grade and i have vivid memories of watching them all on friday nights (I had to stop watching the show though when they aired an episode of "MAD" during the block, cause my mom wouldn't let me watch that show). I feel really bad though because i recently deleted all of these to record a few episodes of the Twighlight Zone in january. If only i had known just a few months ago.

I remember a bumper about Zorak playing his game and that he said that he reached a boss fight, in which Brak replied by talking about a boss in terms of a job, as he was misunderstood.

I don't know if this was already found yet but I remember Braak singing a song over the tune to "My Darling Clementine" and I don't remember all of the lyrics, but I do remember it ending (I remember it because my Uncle thought I was stupid when I was singing it quietly to myself) with the lyrics "I'm a peach, I'm a peach, I'm a peachy peachy peach, put me on some cottage cheese and I'll prove to you that I'm a man!"

I remember these from when i was in third grade. One thing i remember about these bumpers was Braak singing a strange song, the lyrics went like this "hello everybody 3x wo hoo hoo okay hello everybody 3x" this would go on for about one minute straight then Braak would stop speaking and an old episode of either Dexter's laboratory, or The Powerpuff Girls would come on. Since i had a habit of recording all of cartoon networks schedule during the day, it's very likely that a recording of the bumpers still exists somewhere in the house.
