Toonami Opinions Archives | Compiled by Jeff Harris

Toonami has seen a lot of ups and downs over the years. Being a webmaster of one of the net's oldest Toonami websites, I have seen the block change, devolve, and evolve on numerous occasions. It's current evolution as a weekly teen-oriented block is probably the biggest change to date. I have written numerous articles about the block over the years both in its CNX incarnation and the current X Bridge incarnation. Now, here's a list of some of my opinions over the years. The X Bridge is one of the net's oldest chroniclers of Toonami history and I'm pleased to continue that tradition here at the TICA Base. .

Here's an archive of all the articles written in that first page of The X Bridge from the Page One era to the Watch This Space years to the current Gephyrophillia. Newest articles near the top.

Inside The Creators' Minds

One of the best known facts about Toonami was the fact that the creators shared a lot in common with the fans, primarily because they were fans. Over the years, they've even given several outlets, including The X Bridge, the opportunity to see what goes into the minds of Williams Street. Here are just a few of those articles exclusively found at The X Bridge:

TOM's Toonami Chat Session At AOL (October 1999)
Sean Akins's "Why I Love My Job" Article in The Atlanta Journal and Constitution (June 2000)
TOM Invades The X Bridge (July 2000)
Sean's X Bridge Interview (December 2000)
Sean Enters The (Toon) Zone (October 2004)

Watch This Space and Other Thoughts

More often than not, the opinions of the Toonami block has often been a fixture of the Watch This Space page of The X Bridge. For your perusal, a listing of all Toonami-based WTS articles, all of which have been chronicled since the relaunch in 2002. Just wish I had my pre-2002 Toonami articles online.
