November 17, 2000
This was the premiere night of the short-lived series Sheep in the Big City. Edd (from Ed, Edd, n Eddy) hosted a unique night that was never aired again. Throughout the program, the title character of Johnny Bravo as well as Chicken (from Cow & Chicken) harassed Edd to the point where he had to call for Baboon (from I Am Weasel) to beat up the troublemakers. This is one notable CCF that is missing from YouTube user ccffreak's account. A few very brief clips of this night can be seen in the CCF theme from 2002. Also, a small clip appeared in a fan-made video, but it is hard to hear due to narrator talking over it.
UPDATE: This was found and uploaded to YouTube on September 16, 2015. There is also an "Edd Checks the Schedule" ad at the end of the video. (See below)
When CCF introduced character hosts in the summer of 2000, Eustace (from Courage the Cowardly Dog) was one of the first to host, including a Cartoon Cartoon short "The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy: Meet the Reaper" (a pilot of Grim & Evil) at 9:00pm. He hosted on a number of occasions throughout the summer and fall of that year. Later in 2001, he hosted a new night with his wife, Muriel. This was due to his original voice actor's retirement. However, no recordings exist. Also, a fan video (which contains no audio and has half an episode of Phineas and Ferb attached to it) from YouTube has been deleted in the past days from 2018.
Christmas in July Party
The Christmas in July Party aired July 20, 2001. It used all the same hosting segments and bumpers as the Christmas Party special in 2000, only with Baboon yelling "in July" when necessary (including Mr. Announcer [Tom Clark] saying "in July" in the Back to the Show bumpers for the pilot of Kids Next Door [as well as the Dexter's Laboratory episode "Better Off Wet" and the Johnny Bravo episode "Balloon Platoon"] and Time Squad). It is notable for airing the pilot of Kids Next Door "No P in the Ool".
UPDATE: The Christmas in July Party was been found by the YT user Captain B. Zarre. (see below)
Edd Checks the Schedule (ads)
For the fall of 2000, there was a new series of ads which featured Edd checking on his clipboard for who was going to be hosting the following week. The only one of these ads that ever resurfaced was for the Halloween Party special. The remaining advertisements have yet to be found.
UPDATE: A promo for the Mayor and Miss Bellum hosting November 24, 2000, was found attached to the end of the Sheep in the Big City premier night video as seen above.
Announcer Host (Late 2001-Early 2002)
Sometime in late 2001/early 2002, the CCF stars took a break. However, the announcer is hosted. The rollercoaster and puzzle bumpers were narrated by the announcer (Tom Clark). No recordings exist, unlike the late 2000/early 2001 version.
Announcer Host (November 29, 2002)
On November 29, 2002, when CCF had an special Black Friday marathon (which contains two Flintstones specials, The Iron Giant and a special presentation of Private Eye Princess), the CCF stars took a break. However, the announcer is hosted. The rollercoaster and puzzle bumpers were narrated by the announcer (Doug Preis). No recording exists, unlike the late 2000/early 2001 version.
A Very Cartoon Cartoon Fridays Holiday Special (December 20, 2002)
On December 20, 2002, the CCF stars having another Christmas party (since 2000 and 2001) with a brand-new episode of the thirteenth Cartoon Cartoon, Codename: Kids Next Door. However, no recording exists.
Time Squad Host and What's New, Scooby-Doo?
Sometime in the early of 2003, an episode of CCF is shown with Time Squad hosting (Buck Tuddrussel, Larry 3000 and Otto Osworth) and an episode of Warner Bros.' What's New, Scooby-Doo?. However, no recordings exist.
Ed and Eddy Host (February 21, 2003)
On February 21, 2003, an episode of CCF is shown with Ed and Eddy (from Ed, Edd n Eddy) hosting and a special presentation of The Grooveians with a brand-new episode of Codename: Kids Next Door. However, no recording exists.
The final episode of the "original" CCF, before it switched to Summer Fridays, aired on May 16, 2003. However, no recordings of this episode exist on the Internet, though it's known that Dexter hosted it solo.
