Years ago, the Cartoon Network website was a hub for all things animated, featuring some awesome games that we could play in tandem with watching our favorite shows. Although many of the old cartoons (and thus many of the old video games) have disappeared, the Cartoon Network website still has some of the classic, Flash-powered video games that were popular in the early 2000s. Although Cartoon Network Games and Adult Swim Games have largely turned to mobile gaming, there’s fun to be had in a Flash-animated world. Here is a list of ten of the top Cartoon Network online games that used to numb our minds.

They're no match

Who does not want to battle monsters in a huge, monster-fighting machine and save Townsville from certain doom? Be wary of any person who says they do not. They are probably Mojo JoJo in disguise.

Pillow FightThe Powerpuff Girls

Bubbles, Blossom, and Buttercup

This fast paced game was weirdly more fun than you think it might be. Pillow fights are cool. Pillow fights featuring super-powered girls, who can throw a pillow like it is a missile? Yes.

Thank you to the Cartoon Network gods for keeping the Ed, Edd, n Eddy games. Wrestling + Ed, Edd, n Eddy = a game that could be played for a long time without ever getting boring.

Skateboarding + Ed, Edd, and Eddy = a classic, fun game that you must play if you have not done so already.

Scooby Doo and the Creepy CastleScooby-Doo

Oh no
Oh no

Hanna-Barbera created a lot of the classic cartoons, including Scooby-Doo. This game has everybody’s favorite Great Dane attempting to find his friends. Along the way, you must prevent Scooby from getting too frightened by stopping the man in a ghost suit from scaring Scooby.

Grim BallThe Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy

This game was hilarious. It was dodgeball, but used Grim as the target. Hit Grim with the ball until there is nothing left of him.

An honorable mention has to be given to the Toonami games that Cartoon Network no longer features on their site. The Dragonball Z, Samurai Jack, and Gundam Wing games all deserve a nod of respect. Cartoon Network should bring back not only these games, but a lot of these shows that were some of the greatest cartoons to grow up with. One thing they should not do is remake cartoons into a lackluster version of their former selves (ahem. Teen Titans).
