List of Cartoon Network Originals that took more than a year to premiere in the Netherlands and Flanders:
-Dexter's Laboratory (USA: April 28th, 1996 - NL: July 1997, launch of CN NL)
-Samurai Jack (USA: August 10th, 2001 - NL/EMEA: September 2nd, 2002)
-Grim and Evil (USA: August 24st, 2001 - NL/EMEA: October 2002 (previews), November 4th, 2002 (premiere))
-Out of Jimmy's Head (USA: September 14th, 2007 - NL/EMEA: October 13th, 2008)
-Ben 10: Alien Force (USA: April 18th, 2008 - NL/EMEA: October 21st, 2009)
-Sym-Bionic Titan (USA: September 17th, 2010 - NL: October 22nd, 2011)
-Regular Show (USA: September 6th, 2010 - NL: November 29th, 2011)

By the time Ben 10: Alien Force and Regular Show premiered, the United States was already airing season 3!!
Regular Show was one of those 2010/2011 cartoons I expected not to air here at all.

One year and a half is the absolute maximum. If a CN Original hasn't premiered after that, then it won't air at all.
The reason why we had to wait to Regular Show was mainly due to production of the UK censored version in the foreign countries. But yeah, nowadays the show wouldn't be shown by CN at all.
But during 2 years CN PL aired 4 seasons. Not to mention the fact that we had to wait for the RS specials.

Censoring the first season doesn't take that long. It's not like the British team had to censor every second. I think 2010-2011 had several cartoons that Turner Europe only wanted to air depending on their popularity in the USA: Regular Show, Robotomy, Secret Mountain Fort Awesome and The Problem Solverz. Airing these "raunchy" cartoons is a risk you only want to take if the cartoon is popular.

In 2011, Regular Show had become popular, so we only got that one.

For CN UK specifically, we could add Sym-Bionic Titan to the list :(

Well, CN UK premiered Regular Show on 2nd March 2011 (it's about 6 months after its US premiere) so the producers had some time to make edits for the show, or all the foreign countries had to dub the show in the uncensored version and the edits were done only while synchronizing with their UK prints.

This was the current form of censorship for WarnerMedia Europe's channels.

Here in Portugal (and by extension everywhere else that had CN Africa) it premiered in January 2012. A little too late. And I was shocked to see that it was the censored EMEA version.

CN Portugal got it in April 2014 IIRC. It wasn't on the list of dubbing priorities at first so when we switched to CN PT, we all lamented the loss of the show.

Well, most episodes of RS (even though taken from the redubbed versions) on CN Poland were shown uncut and uncensored from 2011 to 2014. After 16:9 HD remastering, German team decided to censor more episodes by cutting some inappropiate words or scenes. What is more, "Over the Top" was banned after 2014 (CN PL used to air this episode with "US" transcript used for the Polish dubbing production, where Muscle Man said "MCHooligan, Round Two").

I wonder why they had to remove the word "hooligan" from the EMEA version. Probably because in parts of Europe the word has a terrible connotation.

In 2016, I accidentally stumbled upon a Russian fan lector of an episode of Thug Notes, and "thug" was translated as "hooligan". And then, the word "hooligan" was censored, both on the title and on the VO saying it, as if it were a swear there.

BTW to reverse this Yahoo's kids site used to be known as Yahooligans, so you get the point

Power Players premieres on CN UK this February. No exact date or timeslot given but I assume they’ll just shove it into the DCSHG/Bakugan 7am weekend timeslot :/

The promo in question:


I'm awaiting February highlights from CN UK or TV listings from DigiGuide, whichever comes first. I found out about Power Players coming to CN UK on an article from Toyworld.co.uk yesterday, Flair (the UK name for Giochi Preziosi) will be the toy distributor for Power Players in the UK.
