HACKED Cartoon Network, UK

Grab of the Hacked page

The weekend of November 14, 1998, brought a subtle change to the web site of Time/Warner's Cartoon Network in the United Kingdom.

Instead of the usual cartoonish material, the sobering pictures of suffering Bulgarian children were displayed, along with a plea to stop ignoring them.

It's unlikely that the Cartoon Network played much of a role in the plight of these children but a large number of more fortunate kids no doubt got a real education on the true state of the world from this modified site.
