Cartoon Network Studios is an American animation studio. A subsidiary of the Turner Broadcasting System (an arm of the Time Warner media conglomerate), Cartoon Network Studios focuses on producing and developing animated programs for and related to Cartoon Network. Some programming produced by Cartoon Network Studios has also been broadcast, on the now-defunct Kids' WB, Cartoon Network's sister network.

The studio began in 1994 as a division of Hanna-Barbera Cartoons which was dedicated to producing original programming for the Cartoon Network, including latter-day Hanna-Barbera creations such as Dexter's Laboratory, Johnny Bravo, Cow and Chicken, I Am Weasel and The Powerpuff Girls. In 1997, the company's productions were released under of the banner of its then-parent company Hanna-Barbera.

In 2001, conciding the death of William Hanna, the Hanna-Barbera name was dropped as a production entity and the H-B studio was folded into Warner Bros. Animation. Cartoon Network Studios was revived as a separate entity from Hanna-Barbera, growing out of the animation studio. The studio has continued to thrive with productions such as The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy and Samurai Jack and newer productions such as Chowder, The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack and Adventure Time with Finn and Jake.
