Stay TOONed for Toontown's 20th Anniversary!

Posted by The Toontown Team on October 21, 2022 at 2:00 PM

Howdy, howdy, howdy, Toons! It’s Joey Ziolkowski here, Creative Director of the Toontown Rewritten team.

On this day in Toon History – 20 years ago, to be exact – Disney’s Toontown Online officially began its Sneak Preview! Can you believe we’re just a few short months away from Toontown’s 20th Anniversary? As crazy as it is to believe, it’s just the tip of the anvil of what’s to come for Toontown as we enter 2023. Let’s take a look!

Classic Flippy showcasing the original Toontown Online logo while celebrating 20 years since it's beta launch.

As we look ahead to the new year, two extraordinarily Toontastic dates stand out:

  • June 2, 2023
    Disney’s Toontown Online will turn 20 years old!

  • September 19, 2023
    Toontown Rewritten will turn 10 years old…

Officially living as long as Toontown Online did before it closed!

I’ve been thinking about these dates for a long, long, loooooonnnggggg time - especially about what it will mean for Toontown Rewritten to be older than the original game! I can’t overstate how exciting and important this sort of once-in-a-decade event is for our community, and you can be sure that our team is already laying down the Trolley Tracks for our plans. We're hard at work planning and preparing to put on a celebration worthy of the best party hats that jellybeans can buy!

It’s easy to take for granted that Toontown is still alive today. It can never be stressed enough how impossibly wonderful it is that this game still exists, which wouldn’t be possible without our Toontastic community! We may keep the servers online, but what truly makes Toontown unique is the community that has kept it alive for almost 20 years.

Here’s the deal: We will never be able to put on this massive celebration without YOU! These celebrations aren’t about our team; they are about all of you who have made Toontown the wonderful place that allows us to unleash our silly side no matter the circumstances. If there was ever a time to get back involved with the Toontown community, it’s now!

Here are a few ideas about how you can help us prepare for the celebration:

  • Join us on the Toontown Rewritten team! We have some exciting new content in the works that we’ll only be able to complete with your help.

  • If you are a Content Creator or Community, think about events you could put on next year to add to the celebration! We're currently reworking our Toontown Partner Program to better support you all, and we hope to open up applications again before the anniversary next year.

  • Dig up your old Toontown screenshots and memories to share next year when the anniversary begins!

  • Let us know your ideas for the celebration in our feedback channel on Discord!

We’ll have more information for you in the new year about this celebration, but today officially begins the countdown until that grand party across the Tooniverse begins. Stay TOONed to the Toontown Blog in the coming months for more about what's to come for Toontown throughout 2023. Only 225 days until the party begins!

P.S. - To see an example of how to get involved with the celebration, look no further than our friends at MMO Central Forums who just celebrated their own 20 year anniversary! Be sure to enter the code mmo-central-forums in your Shticker Book before October 27 for an exclusive item.

Thank you so much for everything, especially for reworking the Partner Program to better support the community! Our Uber server has been wanting to connect across the community to provide a friendly environment for fellow Ubers (even semis!), so we're ecstatic to potentially share our space with more people <3

To think, September 19th, next year... We'll be able to officially say that we're old.

i'm so grateful that toontown is still here today! maybe we should have more new prizes in the cartoonival for 2023, and maybe it last 2 months instead of 1? it would also be super cool if maybe we could have a black cat day/week (for toons already made).. just some ideas for the celebration! :D

I can't believe Toontown has been around this long. From my first time logging in to Toontown Online far over a decade ago til today, this game has been a gift that I haven't been more proud to call my home. All the memories I've made here, adventures I've had, progress I've made, and love I've shared are still here with me in my heart, giving me a life filled with a lot of fondness and irreplaceable moments, and the fact that Toontown Rewritten is still here means that I can continue to make more of those things. So, from the bottom of my heart... Toons of the World, Unite!!!

As a long time player I am beyond grateful not only to the TTR team, but the community as a whole. This game is near and dear to so many of our hearts! I am proud to say I am apart of a community who has enough passion to keep a game like this up and running. Happy Birthday to Toontown!

So cool

Toontown Archive Muffin is the build that started toontown. Even though there are way too many restrictions, it's nice. Example, all level 7 gags are removed. Thanks so much to the TTR and TTA (Archive) team for keeping the two toontowns that i play alive to this day.

Haven't played in awhile but started back in 2017 or so and have played on and off since, glad to see this wonderful game preserved and continually being expanded on! Hope everyone enjoys ToonTown to the fullest and see you all for the 20th / 10th anniversary!

This game means the world to me! I started playing Toontown Online when I was 4 years old in 2008 and I have never been more hooked to anything in my life. I love the people that play toontown, as soon as you log on you can feel the atmosphere and it just makes you feel happy! I really pray Toontown Rewritten stays open for many more years to come! I never ever be able to thank the TTR staff enough for all they have ever done for the people in this community and I would love to see this game up and running YEARS from now! #TTR4LIFE
