Rhymes for a Reason

Posted by The Toontown Team on April 10, 2014 at 2:00 PM

"Hello!" Dear toons, from us to you.
We're here for some Reason -- and a little Rhyme too.
The best part, in fact, is that they're one in the same;
Below is some reason, with a rhyme to hide shame.

You see, it appears we're in quite a bit of a pickle.
"When is the Election?", "Where is my Popsicle?"
"Are you even working?", "Where are the cogs?"
"Seriously, I'm beginning to miss my dogs."

Now, my good fellows, it's time for the reason.
All questions to be answered, I promise no treason.
Except for the second one, actually, of the treat.
It is something I definitely did not eat.

Enough of the madness! We're four stanzas in.
To leave the questions unanswered would surely be sin.
We must finish this one, however, really it's not fair.
We're now at five, and I'm beginning to wear.

About the election: it was a bit of a haze,
I assure you, however, you'll know in just two days.
It's going to be huge -- bigger and better than ever!
Not to mention the story, which I admit is quite clever.

You say, "Are we working?" -- why yes, of course!
We've taken suggestions to heart, and edited the source.
Hundreds to thousands of lines, I swear!
I'm beginning to think that I've grown a gray hair.

"Now what of the cogs?" -- What do you think we edited?
These hundreds of new lines are certain to be credited.
They're coming soon, I tell you, and not a moment too late.
I just hope that Surlee has chosen the right fate.

And now, finally, I must shed a bit of light.
Although you see nothing, we've been working day and night.
Toontown Rewritten is merely in its beginning.
We've conquered the big stuff -- now it's time to get spinning.

"Will it be a day? A week? A month? A year?"
I can't say for certain, but you have nothing to fear.
The biggest of updates are all soon to arrive.
We've already begun giving all around a high-five!

And with this last stanza, I'm afraid we must part.
I really do hope that you've taken this reason to heart.
Goodbye, farewell, so long, and adieu.
(Oh -- and we've worked on the Cog Headquarters too.)

That was pretty Impressive and well thought out. It's so nice to be updated on the oncoming updates and fixes. Good luck on future progress, but try not to ware yourselves out too much.

John said on April 10, 2014 at 2:18 PM
Hiya! just wanted to say this was amazing!

Peppy Sourbubble said on April 10, 2014 at 2:20 PM
Hooray! Finally done with waiting and finally getting answers! I can't wait to the all the updates to the Battle-System!

Lily said on April 10, 2014 at 2:23 PM
You have some awesome rhyming there! I can't wait till the game is out! Take your time though, no rush. It takes time to do an incredible game like this. :D

Fuzzywhipp said on April 10, 2014 at 2:24 PM
Awesome! I cannot wait until Beta is released! :D

To Be Decided said on April 10, 2014 at 2:28 PM
You deserve an award for that poem!

Trixie said on April 10, 2014 at 2:29 PM
Aaaaaahh!!!!! I am so excited!!!!!!!

Baron Alvin Bagelbee said on April 10, 2014 at 2:29 PM
I appreciate those answers, I really do! And for everything else? Good luck to you!

Rainbow Cat said on April 10, 2014 at 2:32 PM
While I admit that the poetry, Is quite up to par, I'm just wanting to know, Have you gotten real far? How long will it be? I know you're not certain, But toons all around, Are waitin' and hurtin'. We all miss Toontown, We love Toontown Rewritten, But if you don't get done fast- Some toons might be quitin'.

Gunale said on April 10, 2014 at 2:33 PM
The daily updates are very nice :) Thanks for keeping us posted!

Skinny Wacko Picklepocket said on April 10, 2014 at 2:37 PM
Very nice post! I enjoyed it :)

Granny Penny said on April 10, 2014 at 2:40 PM
Hurray, very very very gold news. Thank you all.

Kifferdale said on April 10, 2014 at 2:43 PM
"Will it be a day? A week? A month? A year?" Gotta stand my ground even if it rains or snows. If they give out some keys this is the first place they will go

Gwen said on April 10, 2014 at 2:45 PM
Your poem, though cryptic, was really quite smart! I loved reading it and enjoyed every part. I can tell you put in lots of thought. And you said there was shame, but there really is not. The updates are coming, so all is well. In fact things are actually really quite swell! From the start with ToonTown I've always been smitten So thank goodness this game is finally rewritten! Closing this game seems rather unjust But I'll wait to play for as long as I must! Because this is a website that's worth waiting for I can't wait to see what you have in store!!! So ToonTown Rewritten, I thank you time ten, 'Cause now I can become my faithful Toon Gwen, Once Again! Long Live ToonTown!

Jackpie said on April 10, 2014 at 2:48 PM
Awesome! Thanks for keeping us updated on this kind of stuff. I mostly can't wait for the cogs and cog headquarters! You're doing a really great job, TTR Team. Keep it up! :)

Louie said on April 10, 2014 at 2:53 PM
Yay, Cogs! (Oh, nice rhyming poem too) Can't wait until Beta! -Your #1 Toon fan, Louie :)

Crazy RoccoPepperhopper said on April 10, 2014 at 2:54 PM
If this game comes out on my Birthday i would be solo happy! It would literally be the best gift ever! :D

RosieRhinoSpinner said on April 10, 2014 at 2:58 PM
What a great post! Especially since you put it in a rhyme, I hope I manage to get to the election on time! This is all so fun, this post, this election, it's all so great, I just hope on Saturday I'm not too late. So good luck to Flippy and Slappy, But if Flippy wins I will be happy! So once again I say goodbye, but if Flippy looses I will surely sigh.

Jax said on April 10, 2014 at 3:02 PM
Bravo to you, team! It seems all is well. As for the poetry, my that was swell!

Electric Angel said on April 10, 2014 at 3:22 PM
Omigosh XD That was AWESOME!!! you should have seen me cracking up throughout the whole thing!

Brady said on April 10, 2014 at 3:22 PM
Awesome! I'll be at the election!

Fai said on April 10, 2014 at 3:24 PM
i loved the part about the popsicle. XD

Crazy said on April 10, 2014 at 3:28 PM
Brilliant update! Toontown Rewritten will surely be amazing. I can't wait. This election will be great!

Prof. Fireball KookyMooch said on April 10, 2014 at 5:00 PM
Poetic genius.

Princess Lily said on April 10, 2014 at 5:06 PM
Thank you for this rhyme! With my questions it has helped. And when you said your working on headquarters, of joy I had yelped! And the elections are coming in two days or so!? Unless I'm really confused and the answer is no.. Either way, I'd like to say thank you, for all the work you've done so far. With all the stuff you're making for us, you don't know how happy we all are! Thank you TTR, for all the toony joy to come! I'm positive when this game comes out, it will be endless levels of fun!!! :D :)

Max said on April 10, 2014 at 5:45 PM
Great poem! Very Moving and creative! Can't wait for the TTR release day! Everyone is doing a great job! Keep up the good work and thank you for working so hard on this game!

Sir Dynamite said on April 10, 2014 at 5:58 PM
Nice poem, TTR Team! I wouldn't mind reading more of these. Anyhow, I'm glad you guys are starting to get moving again. With the update informing us on how things stand, (and in poetry form, to make it better!), we can all be relieved of our stress. Thanks, guys, and keep up the good work!

Whipcream said on April 10, 2014 at 6:22 PM
Great rhymes! Thanks for explaining what's going on. <3

Fat Kippy Frinkel Fidget said on April 10, 2014 at 6:32 PM
Wow!

SirMrGuy said on April 10, 2014 at 6:33 PM
Good to know you guys are working on the other things after the whole election debacle! Can't wait for the game to reach open beta.

Sir Skippy said on April 10, 2014 at 6:38 PM
I can't wait for a public release to come out!

random said on April 10, 2014 at 6:40 PM

Pancake Dynodoggen said on April 10, 2014 at 6:49 PM
Awesome Rhyme

Spike Wildflapper said on April 10, 2014 at 6:53 PM
This really seems great. I can barely wait. Elections are a blast. Sadly it doesn't last.

Gold Mouse Cool Toon said on April 10, 2014 at 6:53 PM
Great job! My two favorite things together: progress on Toontown, and rhyming! :D Thanks TTR Team! You made my day. (Hopefully you'll make my month too.) Good Luck! :)

Tate said on April 10, 2014 at 6:54 PM
I liked how you answered our questions in a poem :D Keep up the good work devs, I appreciate you do all that you can to give TT back to the community :)

Cheesy Buffle Buns said on April 10, 2014 at 6:59 PM
0.o That was amazing! Really cool! Cant wait to see what the battling is like, i hope its the same with small tweaks!

Supercat said on April 10, 2014 at 7:01 PM
Ooohhhh... Cog HQs you say? THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT!!! That is the only thing I've wanted for TTR, and now I can't wait!

Miss Puffle Pop said on April 10, 2014 at 7:11 PM
Really excited for when I can start playing! I know that you guys haven't finished yet but it already looks SPECTACULAR!!! The TTR Team is TOONTASTIC!!

Jar Jeds The Second said on April 10, 2014 at 7:51 PM
I give this poem an A-. Good Poetry! Love the fact that time has flown by so fast that we will be in beta before we know it. You guys deserve rewards for working this hard all these months :)

Spectre said on April 10, 2014 at 7:56 PM
Impressive rhyming skills. Can't wait to see what exactly happens in two days...

Iceberg said on April 10, 2014 at 8:16 PM
"We've worked on Cog HQ too" Excellent. I hope this means not just coding the maps and encounters, but also some map fixes.

Tom Sparklescooter said on April 10, 2014 at 8:37 PM
You should make more of these every week. I really liked the rhymes.

Katie O'Hare said on April 10, 2014 at 8:38 PM
Wonderful.... much inspiration. I can hopefully come back to Toontown soon. :)

Victor said on April 10, 2014 at 9:37 PM
What an amazing article for today. Keep it up TTR Team! can't wait until it goes beta and we the public can enjoy it c:

Captain Rollie Jumblemarble (II) said on April 10, 2014 at 9:45 PM
Yay! Keep up the good work guys

Foxrally said on April 10, 2014 at 11:11 PM
Beautiful poetry, I say!

Dandymouth said on April 11, 2014 at 2:26 AM
I know it's almost humourous that you've done an update in the form of a poem, but I wanted to say that it probably means a lot to lots of other toons, as well as me, that you've bothered to answer our questions in such a well thought out manner. Just, thank you so much for working so hard on the game.

Super Pig said on April 11, 2014 at 3:12 AM
Now this is how all updates should be presented

Master Small said on April 11, 2014 at 3:44 AM
Everyday closer to the final product- can't wait to play this game once again!

Chaos Kitty said on April 11, 2014 at 4:30 AM
Nice Poem:D I can't wait for ttr to come out!

Spacklequack said on April 11, 2014 at 5:16 AM
This was brilliant. I was kinda hoping to play the game without HQ's for a while, but I think I'm in the minority there, so I'm sure others will be elated. :) Thanks for the update and for all of your hard work.

Dynamite said on April 11, 2014 at 5:20 AM
Nice rhyme!

Blunderbust said on April 11, 2014 at 5:42 AM
Woot!

Ollie said on April 11, 2014 at 6:14 AM
This deserves an A+++.

Good Ol' Duke said on April 11, 2014 at 6:22 AM
Cogs? What are these 'cogs' you speak of? Btw, great job everyone, I have only one thing to say about the progress: you cant make a amazing game in a day.

Colonel Megatoon said on April 11, 2014 at 8:24 AM
I think TTR would be better if they had less hackers and not close the doors if you can't fix some stuff like the original toontown. Thx PS and more types and kinds of cogs

Colonel Megatoon said on April 11, 2014 at 8:29 AM
Nicely Done and can you post it on youtube and put the tube channel down below on Saturday because that is the biggest single update toontown has to offer orignal and rewritten!!!!!! # go TTR!!

Colonel Megatoon said on April 11, 2014 at 8:32 AM
Wow A+ Effort why don't you want any donations you would be millionairres

Rogers said on April 11, 2014 at 1:02 PM
Congratulations TTR Team, keep up the great work. Looking forward to playing soon!

Master Butch said on April 11, 2014 at 1:25 PM
I'm the sad one who wishes for TTR to be done. So I can reunite with a dog to explode some nasty cogs. The way of the Toon is fun like a balloon. I like pie and hope to roll the die in the wheel of fate in which I won't be late.

Bananas said on April 11, 2014 at 1:41 PM

Fat Fireball McNerd said on April 11, 2014 at 1:47 PM
Well played, team. Well played I say. You keep working, we'll keep waiting night and day. We wait for the moment when we can return to our town, all happy and cheerful, safe and sound. Home we will come, reunited with friends. It will be a pleasure to again meet our ends.

MacMuffin said on April 11, 2014 at 2:40 PM
Tomorrow... Is when Flippy will return to glory!

Midnight Shadow said on April 11, 2014 at 3:09 PM
The battle system is being made, that is better than good! But how long, how long should I hold on to my hood?

Miriboy said on April 11, 2014 at 4:23 PM
YAY hooray now I can fight cogs by now and I can't wait for the biggest update thanks TRR team

McWoof said on April 11, 2014 at 4:35 PM
That was beautiful, TTR team. You finally understand our thoughts, and I can't wait to finally see Cogs after this long 6 months.

fireball said on April 11, 2014 at 4:44 PM
that's rhyme is so awsome

Meg said on April 11, 2014 at 5:03 PM
I am really bad at rhyming so what I just saw was AMAZING.

Lucky Superpow said on April 11, 2014 at 5:28 PM
Bravo! Bravo! I'm so happy I'm crying

Dash said on April 11, 2014 at 5:40 PM
Very awesome :D

Macrockentoon said on April 11, 2014 at 5:43 PM
That was pretty impressive, I say so myself, I will read all day from my book shelf, 'till we get an update, we have to stay tooned, we can't give up now, or else we'll be doomed.

TTR_Brian said on April 11, 2014 at 6:27 PM
Glad you all enjoyed it!

Buzz Electrotwist said on April 11, 2014 at 6:52 PM

Make sure you shave your grey hair. XD Nice work!

This is awesome! :D

Pamcake said on April 12, 2014 at 10:58 AM
Ahh! Yay! Thanks for this long poem. I cant wait for the beta to be released.

Rewritten Fan said on April 12, 2014 at 12:37 PM
That was an amazing rhyme! I sure wanted an alpha key but knowing that I can play it once it is released to the public will be much more better! I hope the election goes well. Because this will decide the best president to run this game. And that being the case it might be released to the public maybe awhile after the election! Who knows? It all comes down to this...

Fireball said on April 12, 2014 at 12:46 PM
I really hope they can make it an open beta soon

Midnight said on April 12, 2014 at 12:55 PM
I hope you finish soon you guys are doing great :D!

Notorious Pig said on April 12, 2014 at 1:01 PM
I am excited.

Skip Kookysnout said on April 12, 2014 at 1:18 PM
My prediction is that TTR will be released within a month!!!

Super Wilbur Biggensticks said on April 12, 2014 at 1:19 PM
Thanks so much guys for bringing TT back to us!

Mystique said on April 12, 2014 at 1:36 PM
You guys should post more of these rhymes for a reason. I like them a lot.

Flappy said on April 12, 2014 at 2:37 PM
Yay the Cog Headquarters have been worked on!

Skipper said on April 12, 2014 at 8:21 PM
Wow what a great thing to know all about. I hope you've added the fish like the Trout. Anyways it's great that there's progress. Otherwise Toontown would be in a mess.

Boggo doggo said on April 13, 2014 at 4:17 AM
Well said, well said XD Hey where's my Popsicle?

Corny Wonderbrains said on April 13, 2014 at 6:29 AM
Yay! TTR is soon coming out, maybe that's what this poem is all about. I'm so excited for Toontown Rewritten, maybe try to be sure people aren't quittin'. With all the excitement you put in our lives, you've even made bees come out of their hives. Who cares if it'll take years or much weeks? We're looking to make some Cog seeks. Good things come to those who wait, so I can wait for you guys to open your gate.

Bramblepaw said on April 13, 2014 at 7:23 AM
H-hey, I'm really amazed at how well you guys are doing! Flip for Flippy!

Ashley said on April 13, 2014 at 6:16 PM
Amazing rhyming :D

Flip said on April 14, 2014 at 4:02 AM
Awesome poem =)

Scooter said on April 14, 2014 at 6:55 AM
Nice poem!

Rainbow Berry said on April 14, 2014 at 7:49 AM
This is a great and well thought out poem! Well played, TTR team, well played! I can't wait to move back into the tooniest town in the tooniverse, again. :)

Queen Raven said on April 14, 2014 at 12:10 PM
I know you guys have been working quite much I know from experience, making a video game is quite such. Since I've been on both sides, maker and gamer What I'm about to say will be quite a life-saver. Work as hard as you must, as quick as you will But waiting for some toons isn't really a thrill. Some toons are dedicated. Some toons are constipated(with excitement) Give both of these toons what they want (pure delightment). While some toons may sit... Remember... others may quit.

Poppa Toon said on April 14, 2014 at 2:26 PM
Although it was wonderful The rhyming and all You did not even mention The beta at all :(

Bongo said on April 14, 2014 at 4:34 PM
Enough with the delay and sidebars. It was mentioned the game was practically complete since February 1st. Its now April 14th... 2 months of cleanup? The game really shouldve been out already. All of this is just unnecessary to be kept busy with something random, rather than an official (late) release date (at least for Beta).

Toonified Hybird said on April 14, 2014 at 5:05 PM
I want TTR so bad! I played the original basically my entire childhood. When I learned about this today my inner child started to cry with happiness. No rush on completing this, I am happy to wait patently for this to be amazing!

gigi said on April 14, 2014 at 6:41 PM
love town town cant wait to make new friends and fight the cogs i miss this game so much please work fast my heart was broken when they closed up please bring back our joy and mend our hearts with town town rewritten

Midnite Kitty said on April 15, 2014 at 4:35 AM
*claps* These gloves make those claps sound GOOD, don't they? Nice job, guys! Hope this can come out before my first day of toontown anniversary!

Rosie Wonderglop said on April 15, 2014 at 5:06 AM
Amazing. Outstanding. Perfect. Incredible. 10/10. Theres so much good stuff I could say about this, I can't fit it all in!

feayhermash said on April 15, 2014 at 7:22 AM
I hope they finish soon because I feel like I have been waiting 10trillion years

Orange Ducky said on April 15, 2014 at 7:29 PM
Nice rhymes! They are great. :)

Cool Mac said on April 17, 2014 at 1:26 PM
I am so happy! I can't wait until it is released to Beta!
