Cartoon Network (1992) and Nickelodeon (1977) are American basic cable and satellite television networks that were and still are known for broadcasting children's animated and live action comedy shows. They both focused on developing shows that would be suitable for ages ranging from as young as 2 to as old as 17.
In the 1990's, the popularity of both companies increased as they aired some of their most successful shows, many of which are still popular today. Some examples include "Tom and Jerry," "Dexter's Laboratory," "Johnny Bravo," "Courage the Cowardly Dog" and "The Powerpuff Girls" from Cartoon Network. Nickelodeon produced shows like "SpongeBob Squarepants," "Doug," "The Ren & Stimpy Show," and "Hey Arnold."
Today, both networks have included live action shows to their line-ups, and while many people enjoy it, their cartoons are still the most watched and marketed shows.
