The CC (Cartoon Comedy) is an American basic cable network that regularly airs animated comedies (live-action ones and dramas also air, too). The channel's programming is aimed at kids ages 7-18, and as of January 2018, is available to approximately 15 million pay television households (17.4% of households with at least one television set) in the United States. The channel is now aiming to launch blocks aiming at a preschool and older demographic in 2018, with the sole intent of targeting all audiences.

History

2008–16

The CC was founded back in March 1, 2008 (back then called the Cartoon Comedy; it changed to The CC in 2013) by Brandon Cornish (1953-2017), who had dreams of creating a network that aired animated comedies in the vein of Cartoon Network, which at the time of planning was popular. The channel, however, would not air its first program until March 13, 2009, when Bobby Gibby's started airing. The show would not fare longer than a year before getting cancelled on January 11, 2010, and airing its last episode on December 31, 2010. It only lasted 2 seasons and 21 episodes.

The Adventures of Teddy and Friends (2)

The first channel logo (2008-13)

As of December 2016, My Weird School is still in the air (having survived a near-cancellation after it ended its 2nd season in December 1, 2011, until a contract was renewed to air a special season plus 8 more seasons), and has aired 5 seasons as 111 episodes, making it the longest-airing program on the channel.

2016–

The Adventures of Teddy and Friends (1)

Former channel logo (2013-18)

On December 20, 2016, Cornish was fired from his position as president after Internet backlash suggested he didn't respond to "The CC CCurse" and greenlit shows that would air for a few proper years (3 or 5 at the very least). He was replaced with Serena Gamble (b. 1967), who received positive attention after she greenlit the controversial animated musical dramedy, PikaRap. It has been suggested that Gamble would bring the "golden age" of The CC after the aforementioned PikaRap received positive reviews for its daring new move to the channel. So far, she has greenlit An Anthology, The New Goosebumps, Love Adventure, Stuffy Quests, Monsters!, The Bart Simpson Show, and Supernews!.

On May 12, 2017, it was announced that big changes would be made to the channel the following year, including a "rebranding" which will involve a new logo that will represent the channel for 2018, and a new name.

The channel has aimed to reboot or continue some of its properties, starting with Famous ISD, with a special set to air on July 7, 2017. This is just the beginning, as shows that have ended could potentially have specials as well. One potential returning show could be Robot Buddies, with either another season or a special as well. On The CC's website, an article was posted listing the schedule and air time of its programs in 2018 or the near future. A Robot Buddies hour-long film was announced to air in the channel in 2018, and a 18-episode, third season of Larry, which has ended five years ago, aired on July 17, 2017 (a 4th season was later announced). They will not be the only shows considered for a continuation or reboot, as the channel has confirmed.

And on July 9, 2017, the channel was announced to air a tribute to Brandon Cornish with a documentary, along with mini-tributes to his dad, mom, and wife.

The channel also hosted its first awards show (The CC Awardsies Ceremony) just like Disney Channel and Nickelodeon. It aired on March 1, 2018, the 10th anniversary of the channel's founding, to much success, garnering 29 million viewers, the highest viewership for the channel in years. Nominations were accepted starting on December 1, 2017, and ended on February 1, 2018. The awards ceremony revealed many things as well, including the logo that now is to represent the channel, the release date (June 1, 2018) for the new Robot Buddies movie (now officially titled Robot Buddies Reprogrammed), the long-rumored 18-episode fifth and last season of Larry!, and logos for upcoming programs Mia Tales and Eduardo.

In addition, an adult programming block titled AdultingAroundCC (in the vein of [adult swim]), will be launched and will air the entirety of Mia Stories somewhere in 2018, making it the webseries' first televised airing, along with another block titled CChildren targeting children less than 11 years of age, of which its airing programs have not been announced yet. All of these blocks will be launched in 2018 in honor of the channel's 10th anniversary.

Tributes

The channel has had four occasions of shutting down due to the creator and his family's occasional deaths.

Anthony Cornish tribute

The first time a tribute happened was on May 15, 2011, when Brandon's brother, Anthony, was found dead from tuberculosis at age 61. That day, the channel went silent and aired no programs whatsoever.

Brandon Cornish tribute

The second time, on April 9, 2017, the channel went quiet and didn't air programs for an entire day as a tribute to Brandon Cornish, who had died that day aged 63.

Truman Cornish tribute

Yet again on May 12, 2017, Brandon's dad killed himself at the age of 89 after reportedly still being distraught by the death of his beloved son, Brandon. May 13 is expected as when the channel will once again shut down and avoid airing of any programs.

Beatrice Cornish tribute

On June 28, 2017, the channel, for the fourth time, went silent and no programs were ever aired. This time, it was a tribute towards Brandon's wife, Beatrice, who had died the previous day, aged 61. She was dead from a "botched surgery" in her right hip, which was injured.

Aurora Cornish tribute

On August 4, 2017, Brandon's mother, Aurora Granger Cornish, lost the battle with Stage 4 Cancer, and was declared dead. She had been found dead by her two grandchildren, Oswald and Astrid. The channel will shut down on August 5, 2017, and avoid airing, as the tradition goes.

Kenneth Dumont tribute

Currently, on January 8, 2018, the channel was shut down on the same day as Kenneth Dumont's funeral, who was found by his wife, Allison, hanging from his bedroom closet in his Syracuse, New York apartment, by a noose. He was only 49, and is survived by Allison and his only child, Trevor. This shutdown was more notable than Cornish's since Dumont worked immensely on many The CC (Cartoon Comedy) projects.

Presidents

  • 2008–2016 - Brandon Cornish
  • 2016–present - Serena Gamble

Programming

Main article: List of programs broadcast by The CC (Cartoon Comedy)
Brandon Cornish wanted only animated comedies to air on the channel, but afterwards accepted other shows which stayed away from this genre, such as Negative, which was the 1st live-action dramatic show that aired on the channel, and one of a few shows which managed to air for a year. The other show to do this was Those Darned Toys!, the 2nd live-action show. The final show was yet again another live-action show, I Survived.

The shows are aimed at kids aged 7-18.

Programming blocks

Current

  • Fresh Batch - a block that aims to air episode "batches" (a collection of new episodes of a TV series) on a concurring basis, usually lasting for two weeks to a month. The following are as listed.
    **March Madness - a two-week block that premiered on March 5, 2018, and ended on March 20, 2018, following I Survived's new batch of episodes. All episodes that aired during this time were dedicated to Kenneth Dumont, who commited suicide on December 29, 2017, at the age of 49.
    **May Day, Every Day - a month-long block that lasted from May 4 till May 29, 2018.
    **All In For August - an upcoming month-long block that is set to begin on August 3 through August 31, 2018.
  • AdultingAroundCC - a block that began airing on June 1, 2018 and began to air Robot Buddies Reprogrammed, adult-oriented episodes of children's shows like Larry! and The Shapes. It also aired Mia Stories for the first time in network TV.

Former

  • CCummertime HappineCC - a block which lasted for the entire summer of 2014, and saw the release of numerous programs such as Freshmen and RoboCop, both of these which quickly got cancelled due to the oversaturation of many new shows that premiered in that year.

"The CC CCurse", cancellation, and early endings

Though it has found success with its shows, The CC has been notorious for having shows either axed, cancelled, or ending early due to the creator's decision. This effect has been called "The CC CCurse". In fact, out of the channel's programs, only a few managed to air for a long time. The show with the longest years on the air, however, was My Weird School, still airing after 9 years. Below are the shows who suffered cancellation or early endings:

Famous ISD: Though it did modest in the ratings at the beginning, the show just couldn't seem to keep them for long, and by the time the show aired its 10th (and last) episode, it got an abysmal 0.4M rating. The show only aired for 1/3 of a year, which would be 4 months.

Another most short-lived program on this channel, Freshmen: A spin-off of The Adventures of Teddy and Friends (which had ended by that point) that only managed to air a short season of 8 episodes before getting axed halfway through due to low ratings. The show only aired for a week.

The 2nd shortest-lived program on this channel was RoboCop, which only aired for partially two weeks throughout June 30-July 11, 2014. The reason for the cancellation was never given, though it may have been due to the many controversies surrounding it, including a "sexist" episode, a episode showing animal cruelty (which only aired once), and a episode featuring someone with mental disorders, something The CC (Cartoon Comedy) would never show. The creator was fired from The CC (Cartoon Comedy) and was forbidden from ever working with the channel ever again.

Abominable Snowman: It aired 26 episodes (52 segments) throughout 1/2 a year (6 months), though its early ending was due to the creator's decision in wrapping up the story, not cancellation.

Those Darned Toys!: Another show which ended due to the creator's decision in pursuing other projects, Those Darned Toys! only aired a season of 9 episodes for a month, thus making it the third most short-lived program on this channel.

Robot Buddies: Yet another show that ended due to the story being wrapped up, it only aired 26 episodes for a single season, and for only 1/2 a year (6 months), yet again.

By far, the shortest series in The CC history is Pignite! Incorporated. It only aired for 2 episodes. These episodes aired in a single day, August 2, 2010. It was meant as a one-off show, so it was not considered cancelled. The concept of a one-off show has not been done again since.

In response to the supposed curse, Brandon Cornish has stated that he would make sure the current and upcoming shows on the channel became more successful. However, on December 20, 2016, Cornish was fired from his position as president of The CC after Internet backlash suggested he did "not keep his promise". He was replaced with Serena Gamble, who has done much better, though not by a mile, as shows keep getting ending like An Anthology, which will only have 14 episodes and PikaRap, ending on only 52 episodes aired. Even so, she has gotten more positive attention than Cornish.

The CC MovieCC

The CC MOVIECC (1)

The CC MovieCC is a movie studio created and owned by The CC. So far, it has distributed The Mia Movie: A Mia Stories Movie and The Way to LA: A Mia Stories Series Finale. Teddymovie: Teddy vs. Aliens (formerly Teddy: The Movie), based on Mia Stories and the TV show of the same name, will see November 17, 2017, release on the channel itself, respectively. Another The CC (Cartoon Comedy) TV show, Robot Buddies, released a sequel TV film (Robot Buddies Reprogrammed) which aired on June 1, 2018.

The CC APP

The CC APP is an application dedicated to original shows airing on The CC (Cartoon Comedy). It features exclusive content available to those who make an account on the app. The app launched on August 7, 2015. It aired its first show, a 5-minute shock humor hand puppetry show titled Mia Stories, unannounced and with little to no marketing, on April 29, 2017. The shorts have not been made available on the channel itself. On June 12, 2017, a whole season of 13, 2-minute shorts, for a new show called Wrong Place was streamed in the app. 13 more shorts aired on July 3, 2017, and streamed 14 more shorts on August 7, 2017, for a total of 40 shorts. Another show, Story Scaries, was set to stream on August 18, 2017, after its pilot was deemed "successful" for a potential full-length TV series. 6 episodes streamed for its first season, but after their release the show was immediately cancelled for undisclosed reasons. Subs, another The CC APP original series, is released the entirety of its 17 episodes on April 12, 2018. An upcoming show, titled Agenda Guy will release sometime in late 2018, and will base off of a short Kenneth Dumont made in the '90s.

The-2

On March 17, 2017, Famous Nonagenarians, formerly a The CC (Cartoon Comedy) original, was reintegrated as a The CC APP original instead to accommodate only animated programming on the channel. It was later accompanied by fellow live-action show I Survived, which later aired its last 14 episodes from March 20, 2018 until May 29, 2018.
