Noods were the eighth branding of Cartoon Network. It debuted on July 14, 2008, replacing the Fall brand.

The Noods were new to Cartoon Network, many of them were Next Noods, Remix Character Noods, and Character Noods. On their website, they put the Nood background and a Nood shaking in circles around a rainbow circle. The Noods were based on a D.I.Y. toy called Munny, and through late 2009-early 2010.

The Noods look was eventually replaced with the CHECK it look on May 29, 2010. This era was designed and created by Capacity.

From February 8 to May 28, 2010, there were bumpers with Nood dolls being covered in silver (or multicolored) confetti, was transformed into a Chia Pet, getting splattered with black ink, whiteout, or red paint, and getting covered with dirt by a motorcycle.

All of the Nood bumpers had no longer been seen as of May 29, 2010 (besides the Flicks intro used from May to July 2010) to coincide with rebranding with the CHECK it look, and revealing a new logo with a new font.

Their counterparts in Latin America are Toonix.


By this time, all the Cartoon Cartoons had ended and were removed from the network. Cartoon Network would also start to produce their own live-action original series and air it on their new live-action block, CN Real. Toonami had also ended after 11 years on September 20, 2008. There were only four series still regularly producing new episodes in this era.

Animated shows

CN Real shows


  • A Nood can be seen in a cameo on the CHECK it rebrand's stuffed nose bumper. It was removed a year later because Noods had completely phased out from the network.
    • This is also the case on a Check or Fail bumper in the start when a Nood was swept with a broom on the bottom.
    • They've returned in Crossover Nexus where they're in CN City, along with the graffiti of a Toonix.
  • On the Cartoon Network website, before you become a member, when you are about to choose your picture, a Nood is the blank picture before you choose. This Nood picture was still there until 2018.
  • In late 2008, the split screen credits were updated a bit (with a promo on the left and the credits in the right on a colorful background). This was only during evening hours.
  • Between June 2009 and May 2010, Cartoon Network rebranded the bumpers in favor of the CN Real block. However, the original Noods bumpers and split screen credits remained until the debut of the Check It era.
  • At first, the “Coming Up Next” bumpers were showing the characters in Nood versions until sometime in early 2010. They would be replaced by closeups of a Nood and have a Prefuse soundtrack.
  • Dude, What Would Happen? was the final program to air under the Noods era as Adult Swim signed on after it at 10:00pm and the CHECK it era began when it signed off at 6:00am.
  • They look like Toonix, but their necks are elongated have ears and their Heads are rounder.
  • In some of the first Coming Up Next bumpers, the announcer was Greg Cipes and then later Will Arnett.
