History

Teletoon Retro originally began as a programming block on Teletoon. On November 24, 2000, TELETOON Canada Inc was given approval from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to launch a national English language category 2 specialty channel named TELETOON RETRO.[1] The channel never made it to air.

Plans to launch the channel arose again in 2005, when on October 25, TELETOON Canada Inc was given approval once again to launch Teletoon Retro.[2] The channel eventually launched at 6:00 p.m. EST on October 1, 2007.[3]

A French language counterpart, titled Télétoon Rétro, which had been given approval to launch at the same time as Teletoon Retro, launched on September 4, 2008.
