The Cartoon Network Universe/Multiverse does not work in the normal constraints of time. While there are hints of "real time" due to the occurunces of specific dates and time travel, much of the universe works within “Peanuts time” in which the characters don't age and time isn't specific. Most of the characters realize that they are inside of a cartoon universe, and are constantly breaking the fourth wall, which leaves continuity somewhat ambiguous. Also, the science and mythology of this universe (including time travel and super natural beings) leaves continuity to be questionable.

However, as said in Time Squad by Larry 3000 "time is like a rope, and, as it is woven at one end, ages and gradually unravels and frays at the other." The Time Squad units are sent into the past to make sure time stays the same instead of fraying like the rope, which is why we can assume for the most part that the series occur on one continuous timeline with the exception of the future sequences of Samurai Jack due to the fact Aku shows no presence in the other series. It can be assumed that the main timeline occurs as a result of Jack completing his quest.
