Nicktoons is an American digital cable and satellite television channel that is owned by the MTV Networks Kids & Family Group, a unit of the Viacom Media Networks division of Viacom. The channel broadcasts original animated series from sister network Nickelodeon, known as Nicktoons, along with other original animated series and foreign animated programs from Nickelodeon's international networks 24 hours a day. This channel is similar to Cartoon Network's sister channel Boomerang and Disney Channel's sister channel Disney XD (formerly known as Toon Disney).
The channel originally broadcasted Tiny Toon Adventures, Animaniacs and Pinky and the Brain from mid-2002 to mid-2005. Pinky and the Brain eventually moved to Toon Disney's JETIX block in 2007; the show was removed in 2009, when said channel was renamed Disney XD. Animaniacs moved to The Hub in 2012 for a Christmas marathon (after a seven-year hiatus off television), with it eventually being placed as part of the regular schedule in January 2013. Tiny Toon Adventures joined The Hub a few months later in Summer 2013 (after an eight-year hiatus off television).
