What a Cartoon!
What a Cartoon!, also known as World Premiere Toons or The Cartoon Cartoon Show, is a series of animated shorts produced for Hanna-Barbera and Cartoon Network. Created by Fred Seibert and lasting from 1995 to 2002, it offered animators the opportunities to create new cartoons that would either be standalone shorts or potential for a TV series, numerous cartoons earned success in the latter; mainly those by newcomers in the animation industry.
Often, William Hanna and Joseph Barbera would create shorts of their own that were either spin-offs of older cartoons or original shorts in the vein of the golden age of animation. Well-known cartoonists would contribute to the show, including Ralph Bakshi and Bruno Bozzetto; the show would also boost the careers of creators like Butch Hartman (The Fairly OddParents) and Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy).
