Cartoon Net Keeps Viewers Humming

April 15, 2008 10:15 AM

In honor of the Los Angeles Cartoon Network upfront, the Daily Blink has this report from the well-funded but criminally underused “Cartoon Watching Habits of Foreign Leaders” department.

British newspaper The Sun reports that a radio station asked Prime Minister Gordon Brown what is on his iPod. Mr. Brown responded that the theme song to Cartoon Network series “Ben 10” is on it and he can’t get the song out of his head.

Mr. Brown’s son, John, reportedly is a big fan of the show.

However, for our money, the catchiest title of the current Cartoon Network lineup is “Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends.” Just try to watch this and not hum the theme throughout the day.
