    It may or may not have beenan April Fool's prank, but Toonami is (temporarily?) back. Cartoon Network's 1997-2008 block of action and anime was brought back last night on [adult swim], hosted by T.O.M. (Steven Blum). They showed Gundam Wing, DragonBall Z, Blue Submarine, Tenchi Muyo, and other shows from the good old days.


    This coincides with the recent revival of 90s Cartoon Network originals branded as Cartoon Planet hosted by Brak and Zorak, who starred with Space Ghost on the original 1990s Cartoon Planet.


    This is exciting. It's heating up the Internet; the buzz is huge. Toonami,Gundam Wing, Outlaw Star, I think every show on the block trended on Twitter. There is also a #bringbacktoonami hashtag.


    Let Cartoon Network/Adult Swim know you want Toonami back for good.

    Now that April Fool's Day is over, I can get rid of that Rob Zombie Halloween II avatar Tongue out(What a way to kill a franchise!)


    Fans are rallying to get Toonami back, and [adult swim] tweeted "Want it back? Let us know #bringbacktoonami"


    This is so exciting. This is our opportunity to bring back Toonami for good. Let's keep this thing going! CoolGo to the two links in my signature and send your messages to CN and [as]. For CN click on Programming and then Toonami.


    Spread the word. Viva la Toonami revolution. The revolution will be televised once again.

    You should have guessed by now that the reason Cartoon Network has brought back "Cartoon Planet" (with the CN original series episodes) and "Toonami" (with the famed anime shows of the past) is to help the network launch its 20th Anniversary celebration which should continue through October, the month CN turns 20.


    Now let's see if we can get CN to bring back the original "Boomerang" classic series package that led to the little viewed network of now recent series. It would be great to have "Cattanooga Cats" airing on CN again.


    Keep tuning in to see what else CN will do as part of their 20th Anniversary.

    That or CN isn't getting as many viewers has it probably hoped would watch some of its new shows. This was a friendly experiment.
