“RIP Cartoon Network” Trends as Fans Mourn Channel – But We Have Good News

“An outpouring of tributes is flooding the internet for the cherished animation channel following the trending hashtag #RIPCartoonNetwork on social media. However, this is all a major misunderstanding.”

Despite the urge to light candles and mourn the potential loss of shows like Scooby-Doo, it’s important to note that Cartoon Network is not shutting down. At least, not at this time.

The hashtag has been appearing on timelines, causing some to assume that the beloved childhood favorite has been removed from screens. However, the hashtag originated from a video shared by Animation Workers Ignited, an account associated with the animator’s union.

The account is utilizing the hashtag to raise awareness about the current challenges faced by the animation industry, particularly for its workers. The intention of the hashtag is to initiate dialogue, but it should be noted that Cartoon Network is not facing closure.

Despite carrying the industry during the pandemic, many animation workers are now facing record levels of unemployment, with some being jobless for over a year. This can be seen in the animation that accompanies the video, which states: “Cartoon Network is essentially dead and other major animation studios are not far behind. What has become of these animation workers?”

During the initial impact of Covid, animation was able to function remotely, allowing it to be one of the few entertainment industries to maintain uninterrupted production. However, studios responded by scrapping projects, delegating work to external parties, and terminating the employment of numerous artists.

The video also encouraged others to share the hashtag along with their fond memories of beloved Cartoon Network shows. Although there may have been some confusion surrounding the phrase, the campaign proved to be quite successful, as evidenced by the thousands of comments expressing their enthusiasm and support.

“#RIPCartoonNetwork. According to one comment on X/Twitter, Gumball was the funniest thing they have ever seen on television, and they are not joking.

“As I ran to get some cereal on a Saturday morning, I turned on the TV and heard the familiar theme song of Powerpuff Girls or Ed, Edd & Eddy. It was at that moment that I realized my childhood had officially ended,”said another.

“According to a third person, Courage The Cowardly Dog will always hold a special place in their heart. It’s disheartening to learn about the mistreatment of the animators and they hope they are able to secure employment in the near future.”

Despite changes in the movie industry, animation remains a thriving and popular form of entertainment.
