Launched on October 6, 1994 along with the pan-Asian feed of Turner Entertainment Television (or TNT for short), Cartoon Network Asia aired the same Station IDs as there was used in the United States, Latin America and Europe until 2005. Back then when the channel's operations was based in Hong Kong, TNT & Cartoon Network Asia only had 4 different channels including English, Mandarin, Thai and Japanese. Sometime during the mid-1990's, Cartoon Network Asia launched a separate 24-hour feed of its service on PAS-2 along with TNT Asia. Unlike its timeshared feed with TNT Asia during the night, the separate 24-hour feed of Cartoon Network Asia is only Asian feed that broadcasts 24 hour a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year while the separate 24-hour feed TNT Asia airs classic movies all day and night. Cartoon Network Asia airs shows on its separate 24-hour feed that did not air on its timeshared feed and dubbed in Mandarin, Thai and Japanese including Late Night Black & White (a block that features early black-and-white animated cartoons from Fleschier Studios and Warner Bros.) and O Canada (a TV series that features Canadian animated cartoons from the National Film Board of Canada). This was aired on Cartoon Network Japan when Cartoon Network Asia launched its country-specific feed for Japan on September 1, 1997. On April 1, 2000, Cartoon Network Asia's nighttime companion TNT Asia was renamed into the pan-Asian feed of Turner Classic Movies (or TCM for short). On July 1, 2001, Cartoon Network Asia officially became a 24-hour channel along with its country-specfifc feeds and TCM Asia. Inevitably, with over almost 20 years of these behind us, some will go missing.
