OldToons Network was an American basic cable and satelite television channel that is known for airing animated Nickelodeon shows that have ended their run and are not airing anymore new episodes. The channel was first initiated on August 1st, 2008 @ 10:00AM EST with a rerun of the Catscratch season one episode, "Love Cats / Zombie Party a Go-Go!". Since it's 2008 launch, a vast majority of programs from the network have formerly aired on Nickelodeon and Nicktoons before being taken off the air.

On December 24th, 2010, the channel ceased broadcasting to make way for a new channel called the Eli Network, which is now very popular in the United States.


Launch of the channelEdit

In 2006, 2 years prior to the channel's launch, Nickelodeon and the EliNinja Studio announced that in 2007, they will launch a 24 hour channel that airs animated Nickelodeon programs that have ended and are no longer in production. The channel was originally set to start broadcast on May 28th, 2007, but due to technical difficulties,  the launch was post-poned to Summer 2008. The channel was finally launched on August 1st, 2008 @ 10:00 in the morning (eastern time), with an episode of the hit Nicktoon, Catscratch, which ended earlier that year.

Closure of the channelEdit

On February 8th, 2010, It was announced by Nickelodeon that a 50% stake of the OldToons Network has been acquired by the EliNinja Studio due to recent declining ratings and that the channel will be replaced by a new digital channel called the Eli Network by christmas eve. At the end of the channel's final brodcast @ 5:58am, which was an episode of Hey Arnold!, the channel aired two promos. After the two promos were finished, a bumper for the network was shown, but is cut halfway through, seguing to an episode of The Best Guys, thus ending the OldToons Network, and beginning the Eli Network.
