Prior to 2000, most shows were broadcast in their original language. In 2002 and 2003, all shows were changed to French dubbing. Cartoon Network broadcast mainly Hanna-Barbera and Warner Bros. cartoons in the early 2000s. In 2006, the channel changed its programs to aim of a more modern audience by removing old shows. It replaced them with movies and a few live-action series.
Starting in 2010, it broadcasts less Hanna-Barbera productions. Most of these were taken to the sister network Boomerang. An original video game titled Cartoon Network: Clash Of Heroes XL was released on the Xbox 360 and Nintendo 3DS. In 2012, Cartoon Network began to air the first seasons of Wakfu: The Animated Series. In early 2014, Turner announced the new series Uncle Grandpa, Steven Universe and Clarence.
Cartoon Network France is also available in French-speaking countries in Africa. On 25 July 2016, Cartoon Network France fully rebranded using graphics from the Check It 4.0 branding package. On 4 September 2017, Cartoon Network France fully rebranded using graphics from the Dimensional branding package.
On May 13, 2014, Cartoon Network HD launched on Canalsat.
The block was launched on March 4, 2011 and airs every night from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. on Cartoon Network France. It has aired Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law, Metalocalypse, Moral Orel, Robot Chicken and Squidbillies. Like most international Adult Swim blocks, it does not air Fox and action shows. Most of the block's programming is not dubbed and airs with English audio and French subtitles.
In the early 2000s, there was a late-night block called "Dezaxe", which carried the 2001 Adult Swim look, but did not have any adult shows, except for Home Movies. Case Closed was aired on Cartoon Network and Toonami. Dezaxe aired random Cartoon Network shows and old promos.
