Tele­toon Canada Inc. and Turner Broad­cast­ing Sys­tem, Inc. announced Thurs­day a part­ner­ship that will bring Car­toon Net­work and Adult Swim to Cana­dian tele­vi­sion later this year.

This new dig­i­tal spe­cialty net­work is a com­ple­men­tary, ad-supported chan­nel with a built-in fan-base. Cana­dian audi­ences can expect to see shows such as The Amaz­ing World of Gum­ball, Adven­ture Time and Reg­u­lar Show dur­ing the Car­toon Net­work block between 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. ET/PT, fol­lowed by an Adult Swim late-night lineup com­menc­ing at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

We are hon­ored that Car­toon Net­work has entrusted Tele­toon to man­age these two great brands in Canada,” said Tele­toon Canada Inc. pres­i­dent Len Cochrane. “This mar­riage between Tele­toon and Car­toon Net­work will grant us the oppor­tu­nity to offer more car­toons, more sto­ries and more excite­ment to every­one, everywhere.”

This part­ner­ship, arriv­ing on the eve of Teletoon’s 15th anniver­sary and Car­toon Network’s 20th anniver­sary, includes a pro­gram­ming, trade­mark and brand­ing deal that will bring the best of Car­toon Network’s exclu­sive first-run con­tent that has never been seen before in Canada, in addi­tion to almost 2,000 half-hours of vin­tage Car­toon Net­work and Adult Swim library selects.

Car­toon Net­work and Adult Swim are beloved brands with pro­grams that have a large and loyal global audi­ence,” said Stu­art Sny­der, pres­i­dent and chief oper­at­ing offi­cer of Turner’s Ani­ma­tion, Young Adults & Kids Media Divi­sion. “We are look­ing for­ward to extend­ing the reach of both of these brands in the Cana­dian mar­ket­place with our new part­ner­ship with Teletoon.”

The deal will allow Tele­toon to launch the Car­toon Net­work brand in Canada in both stan­dard and high def­i­n­i­tion across lin­ear tele­vi­sion, Video on Demand, broad­band and mobile plat­forms. Tele­toon will serve its French audi­ence by launch­ing a Car­toon Net­work pro­gram­ming block, along with mak­ing pro­gram­ming avail­able online, through mobile and Video on Demand.
