'''''The What a Cartoon! Show''''' was an animation showcase series created by Fred Seibert, which aired on Cartoon Network. The series aired its first short, ''The Powerpuff Girls in Meat Fuzzy Lumkins'' on February 20, 1995, and the rest of the 47 shorts were originally broadcast as World Premiere Toons. During the original run of the shorts, the series was retitled to The What a Cartoon! Show and later to The Cartoon Cartoon Show with no What a Cartoon! intro, and a new theme. This version of the shorts broadcast for a period in the early 2000's and on Boomerang for a while in 2007. The project ultimately brought 6 original winning series to the network, including ''The Powerpuff Girls'', ''Cow and Chicken'', ''Dexters Laboratory'', and ''Courage the Cowardly Dog''.
