...This has to be a glitch...some of those timeslots make no sense, and they would never ditch Tom & Jerry and Looney Tunes...

The only way to do widescreen correctly is to switch the flag to 4:3 on standard def content, like FTA channels here do. Instead Turner channels here pillarbox the image, and you lose resolution with that.
Actually, the channels that have master telecasts in HD in the United States don't letterbox since 16:9 widescreen is all that TVs support for high resolutions from 720p upward (I should know, I'm in an area that has two different channels carrying Bounce. One (KXTV-DT 10.3) in 1080i, and the other (KUVS-DT 19.3) in 480i). Even then, you might end up with abnormal screen ratios that can't be morphed into like 5:3 where letterboxing is essentially mandatory.

Interesting of them to do a 2-show 8am hour for weekdays with the newer B10 and BLT. Also good to give the original LT a few extra heights in the one-hour weeknights at the two-hour weekend block. Only wish there was some honest change between 12am-6am though giving some of those shows a break in place of other CN originals.

I think they're overkilling the schedule with Tom and Jerry. Adding some Popeye or Tex Avery Classics in that slot wouldn't hurt.

4 hours a day means 30 shorts a day, in less than a week they air the whole Tom and Jerry filmography.

Tomorrow will be 19 years that Boomerang became a channel. Will it air classic cartoons for its 19th anniversary?

What's up with Mattel's fondness with Scare Glow in new Masters of the Universe merchandise? Maybe because he's a FREAKING SKELETON THAT GLOWS IN THE DARK, which is more toyetic than a guy with just a skull for a face, like Skeletor.

Do you know the reason why PPGZ never aired in North America, most of Europe, the Middle East and Africa? I still think that the reason why PPGZ never aired in the US was because a dub separate from the Ocean Group one was planned for the American audience, but never materialized.
