Nothing good can ever come from staying with normal people.

Along with a good deal of souls from my generation, I highly enjoyed coming home after High School to watch Toonami on Cartoon Network. It was an incredible block of action cartoons, anime and american alike, from Thundercats and Dragonball Z to more bizarre shows like Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo.

And it was awesome.

The host of Toonami was originally Moltar, of Space Ghost fame. Then it moved onto a little robot named TOM, who went through a couple iterations of coolness. They would have random PSAs, game reviews, and just plain neatly edited and soundtracked bumpers - in between commercials and programming. These extras really turned Toonami into a culture force instead of just another cartoon show.

Toonami essentially laid the groundwork for the success of Adult Swim.

I'm bringing this up because I just found - a fan resurrection of all that was right during that period of television.

If you too miss one Cartoon Network killed, give it a shot. Just don't give the people in the chatroom much faith. They're a bit... well...

A mod called me a douche for calling out homophobia.

But, at least there's ReBoot!
