Cartoon Network re-airs Toonami as April Fool’s joke

This is probably the best news you’ll hear all day. Last night, Cartoon Network viewers were treated to a very special April Fool’s joke. Cartoon Network’s normal Adult Swim programming was replaced by the return of Toonami.

Voice actor Steve Blum returned to once again voice the Toonami MC, Tom. Tom appeared in a new form and there were even new bumpers for the shows. Among the shows played last night, Toonami aired some of its familiar programming like Dragon Ball Z, Gundam Wing, Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki, Outlaw Star, Big O, Yu Yu Hakusho, Blue Submarine #6, Trigun, Bleach and Astro Boy.

Tom even did a review of Mass Effect 3 and gave it a score of 8.5/10. Tom said he loved the game but the ending was “weak,” which is funny, because Steve Blum also does the voice of everyone’s favorite tank-grown Krogan, Grunt.

No word yet if this is just an April Fool’s thing, or if Cartoon Network is seriously thinking of bringing back Toonami. Steve Blum released this on his official Facebook fanpage:

“For the record, Wikipedia, I did NOT say it’s here to stay. …But I sure hope so. Let ‘em know you want it, people.
Late. End Transmission. XO
T.O.M.”

You heard the man. Want Toonami back on Cartoon Network? Let ‘em know!

Also, make sure to check out the video of Tom’s review of Mass Effect 3 below.

      Yeah Toonami was and better than the current trash they are showing now! I use to watch TCN about 85% of free time and now it’s doesn’t deserve not even 10% of my free time. The shows that show there now are boring and pathetic, that I’d rather watch the Complete Twilight Series twice than to watch the current TCN line up now.

        • Shemptastic

          99% of their shows are absolute garbage. Totally unwatchable. Intolerably stupid senses of humor. 

          The 1% that is awesome? The Venture Brothers. I don’t care what happens to the rest of the shows on Adult Swim, as long as Venture Brothers gets another few seasons.

      Partially so they could gauge fan reaction, and partially because Mike Lazzo really does not give a fuck.

      If it’s Adult Swim, I can totally see them trolling that hard. Kinda their style, they love doing that kind of stuff. Though, I think it’s probably more a trial to gauge peoples reaction and see if they should bring it back full time

    Why do folks always want to live in the past? Do you people miss the shows or do you just miss the bumps? If you miss the shows, the past is the past. Enough years has passed, I suppose, for theme to re-theme the Saturday night anime portion of as Toonami. However, I think CN wants to keep the regular CN/Adult Swim content line clearly visible.

    With that said, the past is the past. It should stay there.

    • http://Website Scott

      Because most of us are still kids at heart. Seriously, I couldn’t stop myself from smiling when they showed the Dreams bump. For the few hours that Toonami was on last night I felt like a kid again. Whats so wrong with that? Why do folks want to live in the past you ask? Just turn on the news and you’ll have your answer to that question. We all need an escape and Toonami was the greatest escape I have had in a long time.

You’ll were doing everything right for so many years with top shelf.Inthe world of animie Toonami had no equal. Please tell us the lovers of truly good action adventure animie that you are going to bring back the stuff that made you the BEST. there is so much more I would like to say,but I’ll end this now. P.S. Am 61 years old.

      You’re 61 and your English is THIS bad? Christ almighty, you’d better not be a native speaker (and I’ve seen plenty of younger, foreign people online who type English really well with very few errors)! Anime truly does rot your brain.

Glad I randomly decided to turn it on last night to see dragon ball z and the rest of toonami. I bet their ratings haven’t been this high in a long time.

    Currently I’m going through the entire internet trying to figure out if Toonami is actually staying Oo
    I still have no clue to if this was a April fools joke…a horrible joke
    I would do just about anything to keep Toonami on the air…maybe except for killing someone.
    I love Toonami, it’s the ONLY reason why I watched Cartoon Network.
    Without Toonami, Cartoon network is just garbage. And I pity the younger generations that don’t even know it’s name, what it stood for.
    When I was around 6 years old, I would make a personal vendetta, a personal mission to get my time to watch Toonami every single time it was on the air, I learned the time blocks, Really I did everything except for going on the internet…I didn’t have a computer at the time.
    And I HATE the people who took Toonami off the air, the worst choice Cartoon Network ever made.
    If this is a april fools joke…I hope someone kills the Producer of the Cartoon network…or at least blow up their car, or Cars.

  • http://Website gerry p

    they did this for one reason, to find out if old stuff really is bringing ratings, when teen nick brought back 90s nick their ratings skyrocketed, so they tried it with the old cartoons on friday, i bet their ratings went up so the had the plan to bring back Toonami seeing as its probably the most wanted thing CN took off, and thats why the guides didnt register the change because it was so last minute. and last night was perfect because if Toonami coming back failed to get ratings then they could play it off as a April fools joke. so im guessing if the rating were good its going to stay.

    This was probably the BEST April Fool’s EVER!!

    Good News: Watching Adult Swim air as “Toonami” brought back alot of great memories from my childhood & pre-teen years. They showed DBZ, Yu Yu Hakusho, Gundam Wing, & even Outlaw Star. Best of all, TOM 3.0 was hosting it! (not TOM 4.0, who looks like Thomas the Tank-Engine).

    Bad News: It was only for April Fools, & I kind of expected it was a April Fool’s stunt, so it was for 1 night only…darn!

    I’ve been a Toonami fan since Moltar was the host, so I did enjoy seeing Toonami on Adult Swim. Darn….I really wish Toonami was back on the air.

    Toonami has been the best block CN have ever had but they killed it by showing off crap. If Toonami makes a comeback then they’ll need to introduce some new shows to stay relevant. Something like Black Lagoon and Hellsing would resonate with the American audience and become big hits real fast I tell you.

    As a kid, I would come home and play outside until 4 PM hit/ I’d run inside and sit myself in front of the TV because Toonami was coming on. It was all I looked forward to all day. I LOVED watching it. It’s what made me love anime today. I watched the complete series of Tenchi Muyo, Rurouni Kenshin, Astro Boy, & Outlaw Star on Toonami while getting to enjoy a lot of Yu Yu Hakusho & DBZ. And Gundam. Who could forget all the Gundam series that Toonami aired?
    I would stay up late on school nights jus to watch Midnight Run and would wake up early to watch the Toonami Rising Sun on Saturday’s. When Toonami changed from weekdays to jus Saturday it was all I EVER looked forward to.
    For the first time, in a long time, I felt like a kid again when Toonami came on. It brought back all the memories of Toonami. From Tom 1.0 to Tom 3.0. (no one counts the Thomas The Tank looking Tom that got Toonami cancelled) It was definitely and Adult Swim last night because March 31-April 1 belonged to the adults who were kids when Toonami aired.
    I really hope Toonami comes back because nothing on Cartoon Network now comes close to how successful Toonami was then. As much as I wish it would come back in full swing during the week from 4-7 I would be MORE then happy with a Saturday night block.
    Cartoon Network and Adult Swim… PLEASE DON’T LET THIS BE A SICK JOKE. LONG LIVE TOONAMI.
    Now, and always, a Toonami Faithful.

I LOVED watching it. It’s what made me love anime today. I watched the complete series of Tenchi Muyo, Rurouni Kenshin, Astro Boy, & Outlaw Star on Toonami while getting to enjoy a lot of Yu Yu Hakusho & DBZ. And Gundam. Who could forget all the Gundam series that Toonami aired?
    I would stay up late on school nights jus to watch Midnight Run and would wake up early to watch the Toonami Rising Sun on Saturday’s. When Toonami changed from weekdays to jus Saturday it was all I EVER looked forward to.
    For the first time, in a long time, I felt like a kid again when Toonami came on. It brought back all the memories of Toonami. From Tom 1.0 to Tom 3.0. (no one counts the Thomas The Tank looking Tom that got Toonami cancelled) It was definitely and Adult Swim last night because March 31-April 1 belonged to the adults who were kids when Toonami aired.
    I really hope Toonami comes back because nothing on Cartoon Network now comes close to how successful Toonami was then. As much as I wish it would come back in full swing during the week from 4-7 I would be MORE then happy with a Saturday night block.
    Cartoon Network and Adult Swim… PLEASE DON’T LET THIS BE A SICK JOKE. LONG LIVE TOONAMI.
    Now, and always, a Toonami Faithful.

    ^^^TOONAMI 4EVER

    Fuck this stupid programming Adult swim currently has, squidbillies, super jail, and the random shitty comedies have plagued the station for far too long; Toonami needs to come back but in either a weekday or friday slot!

    I feel as if most of you are deluding yourselves with nostalgia. I, for one, don’t want to watch the same old shows all over again. I do want Toonami back, but I want it back the way it used to be: as a programming block that showed new, recent anime. Keep TOM 3 (or do a TOM 5 that looks similar to 1, 2, and 3–nothing like 4), keep doing the reviews and commercials like on Toonami, but show new anime.

    toonami: the only thing that you could watch samuri jak get eaten over / over again by a worm and remember the title of the episode, that had promised new episodes of random a$$ comedy like bobobobobobobobobobobobo (you get the point) or one piece with its random and funny faces tha react to scary things gurenteed to make you LOL when you thought you lost hope in the episode at the last moment: now we got adult swim shown early due to toonami’s “absence” oh yeah, and april fools, i bet this was just a one time offer, they’ll never support toonami as a whole to cartoonnetwork again, or as an equal, tonami will forever be gone, it was a 1 day ooffer, and most reading this message, well… you missed out…. toonami wil, and always will be… one time only, the voice actors no longer get equal creditsmansship, toonamis a ghost… will they show it every anuall april 1th, or due to this will they reopen everything due to the publicity? you may AND may as a chance right now, the world, literally may never know, and for this 1 day offer: it could of been a troll to the unotafied, those who dont give a $$$$ about cartoonnetwork now like me… toonami was great, unique in every way, aand only to have it torn down in the end, infact, toonami could of had all its 3D designs and animations made into a movie, action pact, mining, anything, even had its own show which could make a small proffit off of your electric tax will still being free to watch, its always going to be 1 time though…. never again will toonami broadcast or see the solar sun, its dead… all dead, but in this time i read all your comments, all equaly so no one was left out (Even though toonami WILL BE and left out, and surely missed) and i have to say this is the biggest ublic outburst ive ever seen EVER in quite a while, especially on low faous sites like these, the fame and publicity is ussually so terrible on thread posts they dont even get 1 comment, and i fill in that gap whenever i see it (how i get here is by infinitelooper, which i stumbled upon by trying to bypass WMG) i thought this thread would be like all the others, that cartoonnetwork was abandoned, not many fans around after the toonami “digestive breakdown” and takedown hissy fit, well, i was wrong, you guys, all your comments, they REALLY matter, i never expected such publicity… may toonami rest all within all our hearts… and bless the vets…

  • http://Website JTM180

    I really want toonami back like Im dead serious BRING TOONAMI BACK CARTOON NETWORK COME ON GIVE THE PEOPLE WHAT THEY WANT AND MAYBE YOUR RATINGS WILL GO UP!!!!!!!!

  • http://Website EmperorAwesome

    Yes bring Toonami back. I sent my feedback to CN and assured them that their views would skyrocket if they brought back Toonami. Im certain that with out a doubt the kids of this generation would love Toonamie the same way we did. I also like the ideas of introducing some new anime in Toonami. Like others have said, animes like Black Lagoon, Hellsing Ultimate, FMA Brotherhood, Darker than Black and Sengoku Basara would work REALLY well with Toonami. ESPECIALLY Hellsing Ultimate. I feel bad for the kids of this generation thinking that gay emo sparkling fairies(cough TwilightVamps cough) are what vampires are. Bring in Toonami, put Hellsing into it and show the kids what a TRUE vampire is. All in all, bring back Toonami. There is no bad side to this CN, you’ll get a LARGE amount of views for bringing it back

    Man i just heard about this today, I can’t believe I missed it. I haven’t watched Cartoon Network in years. Toonami was my life and when they took it off the air part of my soul died as of sure as everyone else’s. If they bring back Toonami it would be the best thing to happen to network televisions in years. Please Cartoon Network bring back Toonami.

    When I turned Adult Swim on, I was expecting them to show that crappy “The Room”, but when I heard TOM’s voice, my heart skipped a beat. If Adult Swim brings Toonami to their Saturdays, I’m theirs the whole night.

  • http://Website Aura

  • http://Website Duskren

    Toonami is Cartoon Network’s last strand of life standing between cartoons and Jersey Shore. Cartoon Network knows we want it, now its just a matter of shouting it through a blow horn into the managers ear. ALL TOGETHER NOW! THIS! IS! CHILDHOOD!!! (Kick!)
