Cartoon Network has announced via their Twitter account that they will be reviving the hugely popular Toonami animation block on May 26th after a four-year absence. Originally launched in 1997, the anime action block aired such hit shows as ThunderCats, Voltron, The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest, Robotech, Sailor Moon, Dragon Ball Z, ReBoot (our personal favorite), The Powerpuff Girls and many many more.
Ironically, Cartoon Network received a huge fan response after they pulled an April Fools’ Day prank that aired snippets of Toonami segments. Following the response, Adult Swim asked fans if they would interested in having the block return and to tweet their answer with the #BringBackToonami hashtag.
Surprise, surprise, Adult Swim…the fans have spoken!
