Cartoon Network (Japanese: カートゥーン ネットワーク Hepburn: Kātūn Nettowāku) is a Japanese cable and satellite television channel that mostly airs children's animated television series. As a Japanese version of the eponymous television channel in the United States, Cartoon Network broadcasts original series from its U.S. counterpart, as well as several Japanese animated media and other non-Japanese programs. An amount of non-Japanese programs are also available in English via secondary audio feed. It is one of few versions of Cartoon Network outside U.S. that broadcasts its programs in High Definition.

On October 1, 2011, Cartoon Network in Japan, along with other versions of Cartoon Network operated by Turner Broadcasting System Asia Pacific, adopted its current branding. On December 1, 2014, Cartoon Network On Demand was launched by J:COM.


The channel is owned and operated by Turner Japan K.K. (ターナージャパン株式会社, formerly Japan Entertainment Network K.K. (株式会社ジャパン・エンターテイメント・ネットワーク)), a subsidiary of Turner Entertainment Japan Holdings. Started as a joint venture between Itochu and Time Warner, now Turner Entertainment Japan Holdings owns 80% of the company as of 2014. The company officially renamed itself as Turner Japan on 1 April 2013.

In July 2009, the company acquired Japan Image Communications Co.,Ltd. (JIC), owner of Mondo TV and Tabi Channel. On 1 January 2014, JIC was merged into Turner Japan.
