We have received word from Ken-san of Fantasticon
that, indeed, the rumors of an all-Toonami
channel are merely that; rumors. A Cartoon Network
insider has said that they have "...only heard the news about a Toonami channel on the net.
The original rumor, from IComeFromThe.net
, stated that Jamie Kellner (Former CEO of Kids WB
, current CEO of all Turner Networks, including Cartoon Network
) was seeking to establish a Toonami
Network, perhaps as early as January 1st, 2002.
Jamie Kellner is known in many circles as the man who cancelled Pinky and the Brain, Freakazoid, and Animaniacs. On the other hand, he also helped establish programing blocks such as Kids WB
. His perogatives concerning Cartoon Network
have not been disclosed at this time.
