Cartoon Network Presents

 CANP   (DC, 1997-1999)

™ and ©1997 DC Comics

(From The Slings & Arrows Comic Guide)

DC’s anthology Cartoon Network publication stars all of the Hanna Barbera favorites. Aimed specifically at the younger end of the comics market and possibly due to the permanently changing cast list, it fails to live up to the quality of its companion titles Scooby-Doo, The Flintstones and The Jetsons. Usually consisting of a lead story and a short backup, there is little room to develop a story and the gags are simplistic, even for kids. Older readers may find themselves nostalgic with the appearances of Space Ghost, The Herculoids and Birdman, and there are always the staid kiddie favorites such as Top Cat and Yogi Bear. But the energy and brash vitality of contemporary successes such as Cow and Chicken, Dial M for Monkey or Dexter’s Laboratory are tellingly missed. ~WW
