Going live in early 2013, Toonami will have a programming mandate similar to what animation fans might recall of the brand's earliest U.S. incarnation. Young Justice, Dragonball Z, and several other action cartoons will populate the schedule of the new channel at all hours of the day. The network will focus on bringing local viewers an array of animation that generally demands an adrenaline rush or two. Cartoonito, by contrast, dedicates its airwaves to younger kids aged three- and seven-years-old. Broadcasting in a number of international territories, Cartoonito may well pull from a stable of cartoons along the lines of Jelly Jamm, Care Bears, My Little Pony, and Chloe's Closet, which currently air on the networks' European extensions.
Toonami has earned a bit of a revival stateside, but it's upcoming launch in southeastern Asia will hit on all the marks the Toonami brand established many years earlier: eastern and western animation with a bit of a kick.
Popular and enduring anime programming and superhero-focused western cartoons are currently at the top of the list. Batman: the Brave and the Bold, for example, is noted among the launch titles for this new, multi-platform and multi-lingual Toonami.
Cartoonito already calls a number of countries home -- France, Denmark, the UK, Italy, Spain, Hungary, the Netherlands, and so forth. These channels broadcast everything from Strawberry Shortcake and
