Also discussed were Cartoon Network's new animated shows for 2017-18, including Apple & Onion, Craig of the Creek, Summer Camp Island, Ben 10, OK K.O.!

"As kids' viewing habits have evolved, Cartoon Network has always been there with them," Christina Miller, president of Cartoon Network-Adult Swim-Boomerang, said in a statement Thursday. "From their first experience with a kids network website and video app; to their first series [virtual reality] game; and most recently, their first app to use ACR, we are keeping our sole focus on them as they inspire us to reimagine television."

"Cartoon Network has cracked the code on how a leading media brand can engage with fans through true total consumption," added Donna Speciale, president of Turner ad sales. "Whether it's [video on demand] or gaming, or everything in between, plurals are connecting with this brand globally in ways most media brands haven't yet experienced. That presents an incredibly powerful opportunity for our advertising partners this upfront."
