Cartoon Network's Cartoon Theatre (also known simply as Cartoon Theatre) was a movie block that aired on Cartoon Network from 1998 to 2007. Originally, the block aired Saturday nights at 8:00 PM, with encore presentations on Sunday at 10:00 AM. The block aired animated films that were distributed by Hanna-Barbera Studios, Disney, Paramount, Universal, Sony, 20th Century Fox, Warner Bros., DreamWorks, and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. The first film to air was The Land Before Time.

The block was hosted by the voice of the late Don LaFontaine, but later in June 2004, when Cartoon Network entered the City era, LaFontaine was replaced by Nikki as the female announcer, as well as Ed from Ed, Edd n Eddy as an movie theatre usher in the bumpers.

Beginning in late 2005, Cartoon Theatre began airing live-action movies such as Dumb and Dumber and Cats & Dogs on a semi-regular basis.
