Cartoon Network is an American cable television network owned by The Cartoon Network, Inc., a subsidiary of Turner Broadcasting System, itself being a subsidiary of Time Warner which airs animated programming. The channel was launched on October 1, 1992, after Turner purchased the animation studio Hanna-Barbera Productions in 1991. It was originally a 24-hour outlet for classic animation properties from the Turner Broadcasting libraries and was all-ages-oriented which it broadcasts in time-sharing with TCM, but now the channel targets children and teens (about ages 7–15) and older teens and adults with mature content during its late night daypart Adult Swim, which is treated as a separate entity for promotional and ratings purposes.

The network broadcasts shows ranging from action to animated comedy. Original series started in 1993 with The Moxy Show, along with Cartoon Cartoons original programs such as Dexter's Laboratory, Cow and Chicken, I Am Weasel, The Powerpuff Girls, Ed, Edd n Eddy, Johnny Bravo, The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy, Codename: Kids Next Door, and Courage the Cowardly Dog. Their current original programs are Adventure Time, The Amazing World of Gumball, Clarence (2014 TV series), Teen Titans Go!, We Bare Bears, Steven Universe, The Powerpuff Girls (2016 TV series), and Ben 10 (2016 TV series).

Ron Perlman

"Mortal Folly" is the twenty-fourth episode of the second season of the American animated television series Adventure Time. The episode was written and storyboarded by Adam Muto and Rebecca Sugar, from a story by Mark Banker, Kent Osborne, Patrick McHale, and series creator Pendleton Ward. It originally aired on Cartoon Network on May 2, 2011. The episode guest stars Ron Perlman (pictured) as the Lich. Perlman's character would become the series' chief antagonist, and would reappear in several fourth and fifth season episodes. "Mortal Folly" was the first part of a two-part episode; this marked the first time an Adventure Time episode carried into another episode. The plot was concluded with "Mortal Recoil" which aired on the same day. The episode introduced the Lich, who had first been proposed in the series' pitch bible. Sugar and Muto decided to make the Lich a scary and dangerous character, and purposely played up the darker elements of the episode. The episode was watched by 1.92 million people and received largely positive critical attention; many critics enjoyed the way the episode began to set up the series' mythology.

Frylock, please. That was a computer simulation program. And it proved to me that you don't know what I like and what I like to do. And that is to tell you what to do. And you need to listen to what I say 'cause I'm gonna eat your brains!
