“Toonami” Here to Stay

Cartoon Network execs have opted to keep the “Toonami” title on a block of cartoons despite the recent tsunami disaster.

According to Broadcasting & Cable, Cartoon Network General Manager Jim Samples calls it “obviously an unfortunate rhyme” but defends the choice saying “it’s a brand we’ve had out there for a long time.”

The channel pulled an upcoming episode of Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi that included characters surfing a tsunami and is readying a campaign to inspire viewers to help those in need.
