If this is permanent, it's easily one of the most awesome things I've seen done in my lifetime. Not only is it Toonami, but it's the way it should be. Exactly like I remember. I was so glad to see Nick make "The 90's Are All That" happen, but add Toonami to the mix... dude, that's my entire childhood, what more could one ask for?

I thought it was a really cool April Fool's joke. It was awesome nostalgia, but I don't necessarily think they should bring Toonami back. It was a great idea because the people who would have watched Toonami in the 90s and early 00s would now be in the adult swim demographic. Bringing back Toonami would be weird because their target audience would have never really watched Toonami. And it would mean that William's Street absolutely dominates Cartoon Network.

It could perhaps be a way to gauge interest in a possible new Toonami broadcast. Then again...do we REALLY want it? Nostalgia is a type of drug and it is lovely to live under its influence. The only way I feel it should return is with a mix of both new and old animes.
If you want my opinion, I feel one of the perfect things they can do upon a comeback is to secure rights to air the redub of Sailor Moon if it ever comes stateside. It would be wonderful and hundreds of thousands would view with gusto. Coming up soon, I am going to meet the prominent voice actress for Sailor Moon in DiC's dub, Terri Hawkes, at her first ever public appearance at a convention. Maybe...just maybe...there will be some info given about such subjects. Here's hoping!

Anyway. I'm usually not a petition guy, considering they almost never work, but since there's actually real interest in this I'm gonna post it.
Since yesterday it's already gotten over 5,000 signatures, before I finished this post it went up about 50.
The signatures are officially... "Vegeta, what does the scouter say about its signature level?" "It's OVER 9,000!!!" (Oh come on, it's worth it for Toonami!)
Steve Blum (Tom) also posted the link to Cartoon Network feedback on his Twitter, but I'll post Adult Swim's as well, if you should choose to send a message to either directly.
