Fans rally to get Toonami back on Cartoon Network for good

If you haven’t been living under a rock, every one of your nerdy friends has told you by now that Toonami returned last night on Cartoon Network. Steve Blum returned to once again voice TOM, and numerous classic Toonami anime were shown during the Adult Swim block.

While this was a great nostalgic surprise, it left many wondering if this was just for tonight, or would Toonami return next Saturday? Steve Blum released an official statement on his twitter saying that the Cartoon Network block is not back for good, and if fans want it they should do something about it.

“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.”

Naturally, a huge movement has started to get Toonami back on the air permanently. There is even a petition that has started. You can sign it by visiting the link below, and there is even a fanpage devoted to bringing back Toonami:

Toonami Petition

Bring Back Toonami fanpage

You may be wondering, “Hey, how can I help?” Good question. Obviously, sign the petition and you can even go straight to the source, Cartoon Network. Steve Blum recently posted on his official facebook fanpage about how you can do just that.

“Yo, Toonami Faithful…
Thanks for tuning in. Hope it kicked in some happy memories and kicked off a happy April! As you (hopefully) know, bringing Toonami back isn’t up to me. I’m just a voice guy. Many of you want to know how to make your voices heard. Maybe start here… http://www.cartoonnetwork.com/feedback/ Go to “programming” then “Toonami”
Love you guys from the bottom of my servos.”

So, get out there and spread the word! Toonami isn’t going to bring itself back. Check out the video below to see the intro from last night’s run of Toonami.

    It was nice to see Tom again, and some good quality Animes on TV. Though i was looking forward to seeing “The Room” again this year, Toonami was a good alternative.

    i havnt watched adult swim in a long time, but i wanted to see where bleach was so i tuned in, and when i saw tom i was like hêll yea im gonna watch this every week. So im gonna try and help keep toonami, and if all you guyz want to too, help spread word and sign the petition.

      If you are going to fill out that petition, I’d HIGHLY recommend doing what Steve Blum said to do. Go through the OFFICIAL channel to get your voices heard and give cartoon network your feedback…they likely don’t read, care, or know about those petitions. Why not send in your opinions directly to them instead of through some middlemen? But if you do both the petition and leave your comments with Cartoon Network as well, I see no problem with that. Let’s bring back Toonami everyone!

    NO MORE! We have put up with Cartoon Network’s crappy prgramming for too long!

    It has been over two and a half years since Toonami was cancelled and things have only gone downhill since then. No more, I say!

    Toonami had some of the greatest programming ever, even towards the end of it’s run it was still the best CN had!

  • http://Website anonymous

    The room was made by some fucking dick head who thought it be cool to waste someones fucking time with a bull shit poor drama

  • Lexdohc

    toonami was great, but think about this…its now 2012, and we all have grown up and have ways of watching our anime 24/7 now, plus lets face it, it would be ruined by something in one way shape or form so enjoy what you had dont try to bring it back it will only be ruined by the michael bays of cartoon network im sure

    • Logic

      Yeah. It’s almost my senior graduation and my only cares in the world aren’t those late night cartoons, er anime, that I can chain watch entire series of on the internet.Though if they use this to get One Piece dubbed it’d be great :D

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/SQDEDHDAM2Q3WHRMVBZQEBRQQQ Mystery Writer Guy

     Let the past die already. What’s the point of putting back Toonami if they already show anime? Sure this would be a chance for them to show action cartoons from other countries as well but who cares?

  • Sarahfrose

    Oh I hope they bring it back even if its only on weekends

  • http://twitter.com/GeorgeTriton George

    TOONAMI IS BACK! May 26 2012, it’s back, thanks to the twitter campaigns from the Toonami Faithful, spread the news.
