My question is: Other than slightly different looking logo, what would a Cartoon Network re-brand entail? Toon has already become a general kids' entertainment channel primarily aimed at boys that has live action programming mixed with animation, so how else could Cartoon Network alter it's format in order to to re-brand itself?
If you think about it, the seeds have already been sown. Things are building up to a format change around the fall, with Adult Swim at 9pm and 15-minute comedies for teens/adults in primetime. There there was any time to debut a new logo, that would be it.

But how would that be a major event? The network's format has already been altered, and the proposed new logo that we've seen isn't even that different from the current one. A re-brand at this point would only be a major, newsworthy change if Turner were to remove the word 'cartoon' from the channels name (which would actually make sense, since then channel hasn't been 99.9% animation since 2006).

When a TV network rebrands, we usually don't know when it's going to happen until it happens. When we turn on Cartoon Network and notice a different logo and bumpers, then we'll know.

I think people tend to obsess over bumps, logos and packaging just a little, honestly. Cosmetic changes like that aren't really that important at the end of the day.
Well I would like to give the "cosmetic changes" more credit than that. Hell, the whole reason I tuned into Cartoon Network in the late 90s early 2000s on Friday was to watch the opening sequence for CCF! I stuck around to watch the rest, but still I remember never liking Dexter or Cow and Chicken that much- not as much as Ed, Edd, n Eddy at least- I was really more of a Nickelodeon kid to be completely honest. My point being that effective and entertaining "cosmetic changes" can boost ratings... at least to a degree you know?

Also I might add that (I think) terrible packaging, logo, bumps, etc. won't affect how somebody enjoys a network's show nor will that show's ratings drop simply because of packaging.

I dunno if the network would officially accept this logo or not. I mean, the typeface isn't Eagle, though. Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if the network would accept it.
The network has already trademarked it. It just remains to be seen when or if they're going to do anything with it.

Maybe once it get approved, we'll finally see that full rebrand, which I'm guessing will be cartoon related in some way (since Snyder himself admitted that animation will always remain as the core of the network).
But that's not a declaration of using more animated programs. He said that while talking about adding live-action to the network.

You misunderstand. This is a logo that the network itself has come up with and is trademarking. When you trademark something it takes time to be approved.

Personally, I am not of fan of this logo. This does not look like a logo for a channel that wants to appeal to kids and hopefully before this gets introduced on air (if it does of course) they hopefully will tweak to make it look a little better.

This would look better.

Considering the font in that logo looks really close to Eagle, it would not surprise me if they change it to Eagle once it's officially used. Also note the trademark description ("The mark consists of white letter "c" in a square next to a black letter "n" with the words "cartoon network" underneath."). It doesn't specify the font used in the logo.

Silverstar, Mister Toon, thanks for letting me know a little more. And yes, I misunderstood, so gomennasai.:sweat:
As for thecoolone, I think it would look okay if the network officially kept the Eagle typeface for the logo.

So, would a moderator be able to help out @Chevistian C in changing the title of the thread for The Curse Of Molly McGee into its current title The Ghost And Molly McGee?

I don't know if Penn (from Penn And Teller) has ever sung before in other shows, but he should try more often.
