Programming blocks

Cartoon Network Classics

Mainly shows Cartoon Cartoons, along with other programming dropped from the main schedule. It airs at 2:00 am CET, to 4:00 am CET. The block is not advertised, and does not have any special bumpers. It also lacks commercials.

Toonami

Similarly to its American and British counterparts, the Toonami block mainly showcased action-oriented cartoons. However, not much anime was shown, and Toonami Nordic was more focused on non-Japanese action cartoons. Shows that were shown included Samurai Jack, Batman of the Future, X-Men: Evolution, The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest, Justice League, Beyblade and Megas XLR.

Boomerang

When it existed, the Boomerang block on CN Nordic would usually air older content, such as Looney Tunes, Merrie Melodies, Tom and Jerry and various Hanna–Barbera cartoons. When it was removed, its content was spread around the schedule, but over the years the shows have either been removed or moved to Boomerang instead.

My CN

A block also featured on CN UK, My CN, which existed throughout the Arrow era on CN Nordic, aired every weekend, giving the viewers a chance to vote for one of two different shows via the network's website. The show with the most votes would air on weekends at 8:10 am CET. The show also gave viewers the chance to become the host regardless of nationality. Also, if for example a Swedish viewer was chosen as a host, their voice would be dubbed into Danish and Norwegian for the respective soundtracks, and if for example a Finnish or Icelandic viewer was chosen to be a host, their voice would be dubbed into Danish, Swedish and Norwegian.
