For an eclectic set of links that direct you to websites with cartoons, visit Stream2Watch. Keep in mind this site allows you to watch the shows from their site, but you can also choose to watch the free videos from the original site itself. Among the channels you get to view free cartoons from Turkey, Netherlands, China as well as the United States.
For fans of networks with newer shows, you can watch video online through the websites of each network. The following networks currently let you watch full episodes and/or clips.
- Cartoon Network has full videos of popular cartoons like Teen Titans, Ben 10, Codename: Kids Next Door, Johnny Test and Regular Show. The videos play right in the browser. Consider creating an account so you can rate shows and comment on videos.
- Of course, don't forget about Disney. With shows like Phineas and Ferb and Fish Hooks, you can watch recent full episodes of your favorite shows. The site is heavy on graphics so high-speed Internet and a fast computer is recommended.
- Nickelodeon has shows like Spongebob Squarepants, Fanboy and Chum Chum and The Penguins of Madagascar. You are able to watch full episodes and clips in your browser. Some of the more recent videos are located in a shuffling video player in the middle of the videos screen, but you can select any video by clicking one of the detailed links like "Full Epidsodes" or "Clips" or "All."
Free Classics or New with Advertisements
The reason you see many more classic cartoons available to watch for free is that the copyrights have run out on those cartoons. At that point, anyone can post or upload the videos to watch for free. Many of the first links will contain cartoons no longer under copyright. However, if you want recent cartoons or those still owned by major networks or companies, then your best bet is to watch them directly from the main websites. Videos are often posted within hours of actual airtime, so if you missed it the first time, you have plenty of time to catch up.
