Status: Partially Lost

From 1997 to 1998, Cartoon Network produced various series of interstitials, all following certain themes. One of these series was entitled "Cartoon Network Responds!", which featured supposed letters and emails from fans of the cable network. The letter is often responded to in a cynical and mean way, occasionally making fun of cartoons themselves. The interstitials started being aired around early 1997, and they lasted into the early Powerhouse era (until June 1998.)

Many of these interstitials were produced, and some remain up on YouTube, but many of these interstitials are lost and haven't been put up yet. There is said to be 20 interstitials and 13 of them have been found, which means only 7 remain missing, and there are 3 interstitials in which there is no information about what they include, so they are listed as unknown. The list of interstitials can be found below:
