From Cartoon Network comes Cartoon Cartoons, an artist-driven program with a mission of cultivating diversity, equity, and inclusion in the animation industry. 
As part of our involvement, Cartoon Network Studios is dedicating an entire program slot to Exceptional Mind‘s animators, who will be given the opportunity to share their unique perspectives, talents, and voices through original and contracted animated short-form content. 
This is yet another offshoot of our amazing partnership with WarnerMedia that includes our work with HBO Max
Cartoon Cartoons is modeled after the first Cartoon Network Studios shorts program that launched in 1995 as World Premiere Toons and served as a platform for a number of notable animators including Genndy Tartakovsky (Dexter’s Laboratory), Craig McCracken (The Powerpuff Girls), and Rebecca Sugar (Steven Universe). 
We can’t wait to see which Exceptional Minds artists will join this pantheon of Cartoon Cartoons legends.
