HOLY SHIT GUYS (aka "Toonami returns")
« on: April 01, 2012, 01:43:04 am »
Cartoon Network is showing Toonami right now. They have new TOM bumps and everything.

Please don't let this be an April fools joke.

I just checked, and holy shit man, it is Toonami! When the hell did this happen? I've heard nothing about this. I'd think the return of Toonami would be big shit to most people on the internet.

I wonder if we can get them to make another season of Big O. I hate being Gainax'd because they don't know if there will be another season.

History is full of maniacs, my friend, men and women of intelect, highly perceptive individuals, who's brilliant minds know neither restraint nor taboo. Such notions are the devils we must slay for the edification of pony-kind. Even if said edification means violating the rules of decency, society, and rightousness itself.

Wait for a commercial.

Ah, one of my personal favorites (Outlaw Star, that is).  I was gonna go to bed, but this so changes things. ;D  And yeah, I saw the commercial.  Definitely is Toonami, although this totally seems too good to be true.  The fact that it is April 1st makes me think that this is just a one time deal.  :(

I heard about this a few days ago, apparently  Cartoon Network took the hint from Nickelodeon, and now they'll be showing blocks of cartoons from the 90s called "Cartoon Planet".  I don't get Boomerang, either at my college or home, so I can't wait to re-watch the shows I grew up watching.  Although, I never watched Toonami(do I have to hand in my geek card?), so I'll have to wait for other shows like Dexter's Lab, Cow and Chicken, etc.

I really hope it is true, and wasn't just an early April Fool's prank that was just a one day event.

The commercial bumper said that they're showing Big O next and then Yu Yu Hakusho

Cartoon network doesn't have the rights to YYH anymore. Why would they acquire the right just for a April Fools joke? They even hired Steve Blum to do brand new commercial bumpers. Something is telling me they're building hype for a return of Toonami.

So far the schedule is:

> DBZ
> Gundam
> Tenchi Muyo
> Outlaw Star
> Big O (currently playing)
> Yu Yu Hakusho
> Blue Sub #6

Why cant I hold all these feels?

Hmm.  Wikipedia seems to think this is just an April Fools joke.  A very well-wrought, intricate April Fools joke.

So I finally managed to get some sleep after staying up until it ended at 6am.

Steve Blum is on Twitter telling everyone to spam Cartoon Network with feedback telling them to bring it back.

LINK SPAM:

Watch the whole 6 and a half hours here: http://www.justin.tv/backuptoons/b/313533622 - You'll have to skip past the end of Aqua Teen first.

The intro to the programming block: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jc9A5UeW1mg
Mass Effect 3 review: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SYjpiddvMVU
They showed the classic "Dreams" promo multiple times throughout the night: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TfadJj4d5K4
You can see a compilation of all of the commercial bumpers from last night: Part 1, Part 2

BEST. APRIL FOOLS PRANK. EVER.
