In February 2009, many Flemish homes got to see National Geographic with CN EMEA's Dutch/English audio :D This lasted 1 day and a half. These two networks usually timeshared: CN from 6am till 9pm, Nat Geo at night.

Unfortunately, the recording on YouTube got deleted. Imagine CN's English voice-over with Nat Geo's Dutch subtitles saying something completely different...

I remember when TV Cabo used to timeshare CN and TCM on different channels, when either channel was off-air they aired a TV Cabo slide with the channel's logo and airtimes.

This was between 2005 and 2007 IIRC. MEO later did the same until CN PT launched and TCM left Portugal for good. TV Cabo/ZON went on carrying "Cartoon/TCM" on channel 47 and 70 for five years.

Channel 47 is now occupied by BabyTV and 70 by Canal Q.

CN Arabia's wesbite is back, but there are diferences:
1- CN Arabia logo is no longer available. Instead, CN logo only appears.
2- Unlike the old look, The Arabic Text has changed a lot, and used the normal text instead of the ones used by Cartoon Network.
3- Matt Hatter and Lazy Town Icon is removed for good after the new look adopted.
4- Scooby Doo and My. Bean is dropped from the website and moved to Boomerang MENA instead.
5- Nexo Knight and Ninjago page is moved to CN MENA's English Website, and removed from CN Arabia ones.
6- Unlike CN MENA's English site, Bulgarian text appears on the Arabic ones just before 11:45 KSA.

At 11:45 KSA, the websited in now fully in Arabic. The logo moved to the right.

@J10 It's strange that the CN MENA language selector site still has Steven Universe.

By the way, here are some CN CEE pushbacks from 2005 and yes, they used to do this on "Foster's", though this didn't happen during the first few weeks after the show premiered. This still happened in early years of CN City (this time they used credits from "Where There’s a Wilt There’s a Way"/"Everyone Knows It’s Bendy" with Wilt walking in the hallway). Some of pushback have been available on YT before in Polish or Hungarian:

Contents list (with timeslots and months in which those pushbacks could be encountered):
00:00 - next (weekdays, 16:00 CET): "Pet Alien", later (weekdays, 16:25 CET): "Codename: Kids Next Door" (used between ca. May 2005-April 2006)
00:12 - next (weekdays, 19:25 CET): "Transformers", later (weekdays, 19:50 CET): "X-Men: Evolution" (November 2004-September 2005)
00:23 - next (weekends, 11:55 CET): "The Scooby-Doo Show", later (weekends 12:20 CET): "Dexter's Laboratory" (January 2004-December 2005)
00:37 - next (weekdays, 17:15 CET): "What's New Scooby-Doo?", later (weekdays, 17:40): "Ed, Edd n Eddy (February 2005-July 2005)
00:48 - next (weekends, 11:10 CET): "Justice League" (February 2005-April 2006)
00:59 - next (weekends, 10:45 CET): "Megas XLR", later (weekends, 11:10 CET): "Justice League" (February 2005-April/May 2006)
01:11 - next (weekdays, 07:50 CET): "Dexter's Laboratory", later (weekdays, 08:15 CET): "Codename: Kids Next Door" (September 2005)
01:23 - next (weekdays, 16:25 CET): "Codename: Kids Next Door", later (weekdays, 16:50 CET): "Atomic Betty" (September 2005-April 2006)
01:35 - next (weekdays, 07:50 CET): "Dexter's Laboratory", later (weekdays, 08:15 CET): "Codename: Kids Next Door" (February 2005-August 2005)
01:48 - next (weekdays, 16:00 CET): "Pet Alien" (new series) (April 2005)
02:00 - next (weekdays, 16:25 CET): "Codename: Kids Next Door", later (weekdays, 16:50 CET): "Duck Dodgers" (April-July 2005)
02:12 - next (weekends, 11:30 CET): "The Flintstones", later (weekends, 11:55 CET): "The Scooby-Doo Show" (January 2005-December 2005) - with two goofs: #1 footage from "What's New Scooby-Doo?" was used to represent the older series, #2 Romanian announcer mispronounces the "Flintstone" name as "Flintstown" (!)

Weird, Romanian has both the long o and the ou sound. (spelled ou and au, respectively, like in Czech)

Last month, Both CN MENA and CN CEE are using the same May Promo for We Bare Bears, despite CN MENA and all Turner MENATGC channels now being managed by the Turner UK/N.Europe since April. What's wrong with you, CN MENA? Is it supposed for CN MENA to get British and Nordic Promos for CN shows instead, just after April's CN MENA takeover by Turner UK/N.Europe?

And the problem is?

As long as it's a decent promo, it's OK for me

Also, I may want to point out two things:
1) these are probably pan-EMEA promos (created by a London team), which each team decides to use or not; not "German"-specific.. it sounds odd, but often these are not used first by the UK operations
2) j you're under the N. European team, but you still appear to get an "Arabian" team, just as we have a Turkish team for Turkey
It's very unlikely. CEE moves onto a next era like every five years or so, and we've just got the current one less than 3 years ago.
Yes, at this point I think the Next bumpers are staying, especially since RSEE just updated theirs, with the graphics staying the same
However, the idents just should be updated. And the fact that Poland started using the "newer" ones, is a goodsign

The Teen Titans Go vs. Teen Titans trailer didn’t show Bumblebee, making me think either her stay on the Titans is temporary or i’m overthinking everything.
I wonder what Eddie Fitzgerald's up to...
Finally going to get to watch Shazam today! Can't wait :).

I found this interesting tweet thread from Jenny Calabro that definitely speaks volumes.
