You're right. I wouldn't expect miracles either, but hey, maybe something will finally click...

If they're taking the outpouring for the return of Toonami at all seriously, it's at least a small step in the right direction. But I know, we shouldn't get our hopes up.

Cool link. Thanks!

Tartakovsky left because of CN doing that. To me, the Network is not even a shell of its former self, it's worse. I haven't watched the channel in years.

Bringing back Toonami would be meaningless unless they got some good programming like it used to have.

Samurai Jack, Sym-Bionic Titan, Justice League/Justice League Unlimited, etc.

And they should kill the current CGI incarnation of the Clone Wars and replace it with more of Tartakovsky's brilliant animated version. That shit was incredible.

All of these possibilities are long shots, so it's probably also a long shot that we'll see the return of a Toonami in its former glory.

Sorry pal, I don't like the show and I've tried to watch it, but it doesn't appeal to me. It's as obnoxious as Invader Zim, and I used to LOVE Invader Zim.

JLU was fantastic, my wife dislikes "serious" cartoons, but she really enjoyed watching that series with me some time ago.

I'm getting real tired of seeing a bunch of these CG cartoons that have been coming out. I actually enjoyed Clone Wars, but when they brought back Darth Maul, I immediately lost interest. It was nothing more than a shameless plug for Episode 1 3D (LOL). Dave Filoni sometime ago requested to put Darth Maul in the series, but Lucas said no, thus Savage Oppress.

Don't get me wrong, the animation in Clone Wars has become leaps and bounds better than when it started, it's more expressive, much more fluid, but Tartakovsky's series was better. Sym-Bionic Titan was Tartakovsky at the top of his game, his style to me was perfected in that series and how Star Wars would look now with his art-style, it's a shame Lucas didn't go back with him. As far as CG in TV cartoons go, I can't say anything good about every other series that's coming out/is out (Kung Fu Panda series, Green Lantern, etc.) But that just shows how cheap the networks are willing to go I guess.

That's pretty true, but on a similar note, Cartoon Network did bring back Cartoon Planet hosted by Brak and Zorak and digging out some old Cartoon Cartoons, so I think the chances of them providing some quality programming would be pretty decent.

There's nothing wrong with having an opinion. I can't stand adventure time either. I know I'm not being fair, but the art style is just so bad that I won't even give it a chance. No, I liked CN when they put serious stuff on like toonami. But then I saw Saul of the Mole Men and I forever stopped watching CN.
