Breezy's Recap:

I found my favorite superhero (Sailor Moon) on Cartoon Network, way back in the day so the network will always have a special place in my heart. I actually am really proud of their back to basics approach to some of the content that they are producing this year.  Scooby Doo, Loony Toons and Tom and Jerry are classics that every generation should grow up watching. They are just good wholesome tv shows that can make anyone laugh. I think kids are really going to like the new original and digital content that will be filling up their tv screens. what show are you looking forward to? Let us know in the comments.
