Cartoonstitute was a planned Cartoon Network project created by Cartoon Network executive Rob Sorcher that would have been a showcase for animated shorts created without the interference of network executives and focus testing. It was headed by Craig McCracken (creator of The Powerpuff Girls and Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends) and Rob Renzetti (creator of My Life as a Teenage Robot).[1][2] 39 shorts for the project were in development at Cartoon Network Studios, but only 14 of the these were completed.[3] Of the shorts which were made, only Regular Show has been greenlit to become an animated series.[4]


The series was first announced on April 3, 2008 at Cartoon Network's annual upfront in New York City. The project was to be similar to The Cartoon Cartoon Show (also known as the "What a Cartoon! Show") which aired on the network more than a decade earlier and gave birth to some of the channel's first animated series, such as Dexter's Laboratory and Cow and Chicken. The Cartoonstitute was to establish a think tank and create an environment in which animators can create characters and stories. A section of Cartoon Network Studios in Burbank, California was set aside exclusively for the project. The "Cartoonstitute" name was imagined by Lauren Faust, the wife of Craig McCracken.[5]
