Yeah, let's just say Toonami decided to have a block on Boomerang, showing old action shows, replacing Boomeraction.
It'd be called "Toonami on Boomerang," and it would have debuted in October 2002. It would have been hosted by Swayzak, and the story of the block goes that TOM and Sara hunted him down after the events of Trapped in Hyperspace and convinced him to make up for his crimes by joining the Toonami crew. So Swayzak is in control of the Boomerang block's operations. He would have provided commentary in his chaotic style, and reviewed video games like TOM and Sara did on the regular block. (BTW, when Sara reviewed Rez in 2004, instead of the Swayzak cameo going like the one we got, Swayzak would have appeared, said "Uh... hello?" and waved.)

Later on, Pokémon (the Indigo League episodes) would be added to the lineup and Swayzak would have told everyone about Electric Soldier Porygon, not liking the episode because a virus wasn't the villain, and because of the seizures too. A few other old cartoons would be added to the lineup as well. This Toonami would rely more on American action cartoons than anime, with only Speed Racer, Voltron, Robotech, G-Force, and Pokémon being anime.

The block would have ended on the same day the CN Toonami ended.

I hope you enjoyed this look at what a Toonami block on Boomerang might have been like. I will do more stuff like this in the future.

I remember a number of people here, myself included, suggesting during the late 00s that they should've replaced Boomeraction with a retro Toonami block hosted by Moltar.

Then Boomerang became completely irrelevant and CN Toonami died.

Awww! That sucks. Honestly, I think Swayzak is a better host because he's more chaotic and he would have funny lines like, (about the Fantastic Four) "I have a crush on the Invisible Woman."

Plus, Swayzak would be the one to host a block like this nowadays because Moltar's VA died and a different VA voiced Swayzak. But we can't pull this off nowadays because Toonami is an Adult Swim property and we can't reference any AS property on CN or Boomerang. Either introduce Swayzak as an entirely new character, effacing his history, or have a new character host the block, and I certainly don't want the former...

It looks like San Diego Comic Con will once again be virtual, with the event being held from July 23-25. They hopefully plan to have large, in person conventions in 2022, but it seems like a smaller venue will be held in November. In addition, Wonder Con will be virtual again, and be held from March 26-27.

About Butch Hartman's debacle s an artist recently, the dude is so much better than this. At least it's not something like being accused of something like Sexual harassment but, yeah disappointing to say the least.
I'll have to wait for the home release of the Tom and Jerry movie to watch it, but from what I've seen I like the Kayla character's relationship with Tom. It was nice to see a character befriend him before Jerry for once.
Here's a video from both The Watch Tower Database and Kuro The Artist about Dwayne McDuffie.

We are in the Endgame now...
