Where do these Cartoon Network quotes come from? (sorry if this is the wrong forum)

I’ve been seeing lots of these quotes with the same typeface, usually white, around for a while now in many different places.






They’re all from old Cartoon Network shows, and they’re all mediocre quality at best. My only conclusion is that they all come from the same source, but I don’t know where. Do any of you happen to know?

I’m not entirely sure what you’re asking. Are you asking where these quotes originated from? If so, these are all actual quotes from their respective tv shows.

If you’re asking who took the time to watch these shows with captions and put them on the internet. Then the best answer to give would be ‘the internet’.

I know they’re all quotes from the shows. My point is that all of these captions have the exact same font. I’m assuming that the captions with this font were all made by one person on the Internet (maybe a Tumblr blog), because the only captions I know about on actual TV are the black closed captions like this.

I may be wrong, and that’s another reason I bring this up. Did they actually have subtitles like the ones in my original post on TV or anything else back in the day (possibly exclusive to CN)? I’ve never seen them like that.

I understand your confusion, because this is a rather strange and frivolous question I bring up here.

Wow, I really must have not worded my question right. I know the shows these all are from. What I’m asking about is who captioned them, considering the font is identical in each one.

My only guess would be someone from 4chan, specifically /co/, as these appear to all be Western cartoons. There could have been a “quote” thread or something. If it is from 4chan, you’re outta luck, as it’s pretty much impossible to track down whoever did them from there.

They could be from Tumblr, 4chan, Reddit, or another similar site. Those are my guesses, but I don’t know definitively.
