Droopy's Guide to the Cartoon Network (partially found CN launch preview; 1992)
Droopy's Guide to the Cartoon Network is a 1992 special event which inaugurated the launch of the then-new Cartoon Network, making its debut in the United States on October 1, 1992. As the title suggests, the special was hosted by the MGM cartoon character, Droopy, who provides everything about the shows that air and what to expect on this brand new, then-24/7 Cartoon Network. During the special, the Bugs Bunny cartoon "Rhapsody Rabbit" was shown, which marked it the first cartoon to ever air on the network. A post on the network's official Facebook page had mistakenly cited "The Great Piggy Bank Robbery" as being the first cartoon that ever aired.
Footage of the network's launch had remained lost for a long period of time until July 24, 2018, when YouTube user Gustavo Aguilera uploaded the first three minutes of the network's initial launch.
