Cartoon Network Hack was an incident affecting websites for Cartoon Network Brazil, Cartoon Network Hungary and Cartoon Network UK. Videos on the sites were replaced with bait-and-switch media including Richardo Milos dance.
Around 4:40 PM EST on April 27th, 2019, Twitter user @NelisMarkus reported that the Cartoon Network Hungary site was hacked (shown below, left). It was also reported on /r/masterhacker. The following day, Twitter user @sudoreall claimed to be the perpetrator behind the hack.
News of the hack traveled across social media. /r/arabfunny realized that one of the episodes of The Amazing World of Gumball on the UK site had been replaced with a video from the subreddit (shown below, left). YouTuber "I'm a huge faggot" posted an explainer and overview of the hack, gaining over 7,900 views (shown below, right).
Tumblr account CN-confessions posted an explainer and overview of the hack. The site noted that the Hungarian site had apparently been hacked for two days but no one noticed until the 27th. Cartoon Network shut the site down on the 28th to fix the problem, and it has since been returned to normal.
