2000s Cartoon Network/Adult Swim Halloween bumpers

From 1999-2003 Cartoon Cartoon Fridays was a 4-hour block of programming in which Cartoon Network aired all of their original "Cartoon Cartoons" series. The on-going series slowly changed from a series of cartoon injected parodies (such as fake cooking shows and weather forecasts), which were used from 1999-2000, into a full series of segments and bumpers hosted by one of the network's animated stars.

Each week, a new character such as Bubbles (The Powerpuff Girls), Eustace (Courage the Cowardly Dog), Edd (Ed, Edd n Eddy), or Johnny Bravo (Johnny Bravo) would actually host the program by announcing upcoming episodes and interacting with other random cartoons on the set. To tie this all together, there was an off-screen announcer that introduced each host as well as the weekly commercial ads.

Here are the bumpers and segments from the Cartoon Cartoon Fridays Halloween Party that originally aired on October 27th, 2000. This is hosted by "Cartoon Cartoons" characters dressed in Halloween costumes of other "Cartoon Cartoons" characters:

Starting in 2003, the Cartoon Cartoon Fridays block was simply called Fridays and was hosted by 2 live hosts, Tommy Snider and Nzinga Blake in 2003-2004 with Nzinga being replaced by Tara Sands in 2005-2007.

Here are bumpers and segments of Fridays from October 2004. This also has both versions of the Fridays opening, one at the beginning, and another at the end of this video:

And finally here are Adult Swim Halloween wraparounds from 2003 starring Brak's Dad. These were shown during the airing of "The Brak Show" and "Aqua Teen Hunger Force":
