Reception

The PlayStation 2 version received a 3.8 at GameSpot, and the DS version received a 6.3. Mostly all reviews of the game are good. Aaron Thomas wrote an article Basically saying that "Cartoon Network Racing is a overall really good game that gets really cool after a few weeks of buying said game". IGN gave the DS version 5.8/10 which is higher than PS2 version which is 3.4/10 and was an improvement over another Cartoon Network-themed racing game Cartoon Network Speedway which was panned, partially for the fact characters from neither Dexter's Laboratory nor The Powerpuff Girls were available on gameplay. The PS2 version seemed to be better.
