Toonami

Postby Jayngfet » Sun Sep 21, 2008 12:24 am UTC

As of today toonami has been pulled off the airwaves. A new friday block has been set up for a premiere Oct.3. Little is known about it but it will have Ben 10, Clone wars, The secret saturdays, and batman:the brave and the bold.

Toonami still has jetstream.

Toonami died the day they stopped showing anime and Samurai Jack. They just pulled the plug on this vegetative hunk of TV.

Yeah, it was still kind of sad though. It was a memorable part of my childhood and I'll miss it. Goodbye, Tom.

You do realize there was a point when Toonami showed little to no anime at it's start right?

They showed things like Swat Kats, Godzilla, and Thundercats, Reboot and the host was Moltar from space ghost.

I actually liked it that way. Moltar was straight awesome.

Screw cartoon network, we'll make ou're own damn Toonami!

Though in honesty, judging by the fact that we and our audience are outside their demographic, using shows they don't even rerun(and I'm trying to get them off even those), with a different ship and body. I say we have a decent shot at this.

I'm not sure if that makes us kind of old or not to remember it back in those days. I'm only 22 though..that's not old!

But a lot of people seem to think Tom was all Toonami ever had. Although I hear his last iteration was....scary.

Toonami died when they stopped having new DBZ episodes to show. There, I said it. It's the program that DBZ built.

Yeah, it's pretty fair to say that was the main reason it had its success. Not that other animes like Gundam Wing, Outlaw Star, and Tenchi didn't help, but a large majority of the ratings were obviously from DBZ.

It's hard to say when exactly it died, but it was easy to tell when the network realized it was dead, and that's when they changed Tom into a used-future industrial robot with Disney eyes.

I'd say the move away from the weekdays is when toonami died the first time if I was hard pressed to pick.

The whole world died a little when Samurai Jack stopped playing.

They've been rerunning it, actually.
But they might stop for that Clone Wars series, which is ironic, since it's a bastardization of another Tartakovsky series.
