Some of the best Cartoon Network shows on now in 2019 illustrate the ways in which animation - and children's programming in general - can have a wide-reaching appeal and delight audiences of all ages. While some current shows on Cartoon Network are definitively directed at children, other programs seem to have a multigenerational appeal. If you're wondering what to watch on Cartoon Network, this list should help you decide. 

One of the most popular Cartoon Network shows is the surreal series Steven Universe which has a cult following among both adults and kids, and has received nearly universal critical acclaim. Steven Universe has also been praised for the way it handles mental health issues, allowing parents to find a means to discuss difficult issues with their kids. Other Cartoon Network acquired series - like Teen Titans Go! and Lego Ninjago: Masters Of Spinjitzu - are a little more lighthearted, but nevertheless charming. With so many great shows on now, you're sure to find something on the network that suits your taste.
