The Starburst era was the second era of Cartoon Network. It began in June 1997 and ended on March 1, 1998, running concurrent with Checkerboard. It was succeeded by the Powerhouse era. The era featured the Cartoon Network logo plastered over a colorful starburst. These promos (which promoting the Cartoon Cartoons brand with its three new shows and the second season of Dexter's Lab in July from the same year) also often featured an electric guitar riff that ended with a 12-note stinger accompanying the aforementioned starburst logo closing.
