It might have started as an April Fool's joke, but I think the ratings last night will reflect something.
Toonami still has a lot of potential. They were foolish for canceling it.
The Facebook page for Toonami gained like 3k "likes" since I started paying attention to it last night.
& people are sending Cartoon Network feedback asking that Toonami come back.
I'm really hoping something comes of this.
I've been staying gold for so long.
They showed older shows because of nostalgia.
It wouldn't have the same impact as a joke even if they played different material.
Thought that was... obvious.
Though I'm pretty sure the 3rd OVA of Tenchi never aired on TV at all until last night.
Also, I'm pretty certain CN lost rights to most of those shows a long time ago.
& getting the actual voice of Tom to participate?
Quite an elaborate joke, adult swim. Well played.
