Cartoon Network UK’s New Easter Idents
Cartoon Network UK is now airing a new series of nice looking idents for Easter 2017, the idents feature characters from Adventure Time, The Amazing World of Gumball, Ben 10, Uncle Grandpa, Teen Titans Go! and The Powerpuff Girls in a multicoloured moving grid among some patterned Easter eggs. People have commented that the presentation in the idents looks similar to Cartoon Network USA’s current Dimensional branding and is an indicator of a possible rebrand but Cartoon Network UK’s current Check It 4.0. look isn’t even a year old yet.
However, Cartoon Network Italy, Cartoon Network Portugal, Cartoon Network France and Cartoon Network Turkey has already started to air a few elements from the Dimensional graphics package. Versions of Cartoon Network outside the United States tend to have their own identity and creative ideas, often building upon Cartoon Network USA’s presentation.
