Cartoon Network surprises fans with the return of Toonami in place of regular Adult Swim programming.
Toonami needs to make a comeback.
Could not agree with you more. The quality of shows in general on Cartoon Network during the regular days leave me wanting. Their DC Nation is pretty fun though, but they need something like Toonami to come back and rule.
I actually love most of their shows now. There was a time between now and when toonami left wher the channel sucked, but the new shows are great. I think a lot of their original programming on Adult Swim is pure crap though lol thats the only thing I hate.
Adult Swim was more awesome with their original line up of Home Movies, Space Ghost, SeaLab 2012, and the original Aqua Teen Hunger Force. All of the live action stuff they do now is just not funny. It's more gross and stupid than anything.
Yeah don't understand why they keep making live action shows on CARTOON Network lol....that new show Level Up I absolutely cannot stand. If thier shows were more like Nickelodeon or something with some adult humor mixed in it might be fine, but then they go too far with the Adult Swim live action stuff. I mean the whole voice changed show, its a good episode for a joke, but an entire series based on that? come on. However they do have probably the best cartoons on TV right now. DC Nation, Johnny Test, almost everything except Adventure Time is awesome. My little brother hates the show too so I don't understand what the target audience is..... In fact I'm missing Spider-Man Unlimited, which might be something CN missed out on thanks to Disney lol
I liked the 90s superhero shows that they played. Superman/Batman: The Animated Series, Justice League....those were awesome. Young Justice is probably the best one in a while, but it still has some immaturity to its writing (the forced "make it relatable to kids" sort of thing). Better than "The Batman" or "Batman: The Brave and the Bold", though. All of the live action sucks. But it's easy to look back with nostalgia. It's not like there wasn't plenty of stinkers in-between the good stuff back then, too.
"Cartoon Network Re-Airs Toonami as April Fool’s Joke" That's just fucked up, it's not even funny.
It runs all the time online! http://www.toonamiaftermath...
Damn! How did I freaking miss this! I loved Toonami. Even if it was for one night, it would have been totally worth it to watch.
I'm kinda glad it was just a joke. While I respect the shows I prefer to watch Family Guy and American Dad before I go to sleep than Toonami. Never really got an interest in those shows beyond Dragon Ball Z, and DC Nation fills the void perfectly as I like it a lot more.
I like watchin FG and American dad right before bed too but if I remember correctly, toonami always came on before adult swim so if it did make a comeback, it wouldnt affect any adult swim shows...
Yeah, I was mostly referring to when it aired last night. It's just a personal opinion. I know people liked Toonami and I'm sure those people would enjoy it.
hey adventure time is awesome
I watch a lot of cartoons, its just something I never grew out of, but cannot stand Adventure Time. No disrespect to anyone that does enjoy it, but personally not my type of show. Plus I don't know anyone personally that still likes it. I and a bunch of people were like "hmm this is pretty cool" when they did the zombie episode, but after that we stopped liking it.
The Amazing World of Gumball is better!!
gumball and adventure time are both good
n this is why Cartoon Network is crap now
that is like the worst April fools joke ever...
Awwww, damnit, i was excited to hear it was back.....
This did little more than remind me how absolutely dull TV is as opposed to what it was when I was a teenager during the reign of Toonami.
Toonami is licensed shows from overseas. Adult swim is atrociously bad (now), but they can make money by selling DVD's to morons. Toonami will never come back because CN can't make as much money off it. They'd rather pump out garbage they own the rights to. But it is still garbage.
NOOOOO! I did not know this was a freaking joke. I was anticipating to watch Toonami again tomorrow, Saturday night. What the hell.
