The animated series on Cartoon Network (CN) are aimed at 6-12 year olds, particularly boys. The programming is energetic, adventurous and clever – and, a lot of the time, laugh-out-loud funny. Series like The Amazing World of Gumball, Adventure Time and Ben 10 are currently hitting the spot with strong character-based, story-driven comedy and action adventure. Cartoon Network can also be experienced through its award-winning website, as well as via games, VOD, mobile and an array of licensing and merchandising. Since launching as a pan-European channel in 1993, Cartoon Network now has localised services throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa, where it is available in 21 languages and in 128 million homes.
