Default Toonami Returns AKA The Cruelest April Fools Joke of All Time

Anyone else watching Gundam Wing on Cartoon Network right now? Anyone know if this is going to last all day?

This is the cruelest joke of all-time. I can't handle this right now.

Cruel, but it's hard to complain too much when Toonami Aftermath exists.

This completely caught me off guard. Yeah I knew about April Fools yet was still fooled.

Silly me. Best April Fools prank ever.

I loved the little Tenchi Muyo promo.

Damn, I missed it. Even though I have every DBZ episode on DVD, it would've been nostalgic to watch it with the Toonami intros.

I haven't seen Gundam Wing in a long time though, would've been nice to see it again.

Very well done Cartoon Network.

I might have to start watching Adult Swim again if they did this. Toonami was a big part of my formative years, with shows like DBZ, Gundam Wing, and Outlaw Star.

I remember DBZ vs Gundam Wing arguments on the elementary playground.

I think they should bring back Toonami as like a mornings and afternoon block. Not like primetime and evenings.

If they did bring back Toonami would you guys want re-runs or newer episodes of shows? Like for example, maybe the next season of Naruto Shippuden now that it's done on Disney? I think things like Tiger and Bunny would be perfect for Toonami especially if you can show things like Young Justice, Thundercats, etc. in the mornings.

Steve Blume posted a video talking about it. Pretty much telling people how to get it trending again on Twitter, but still. I already made a video last night explaining why it would be a great idea.

Here's Blum.

[as] just played a song during one of their bumps dedicated in bringing Toonami back. It's actually a really well made song.
