OMGCon Update: Q&A with the Creator of Toontown

Posted by The Toontown Team on May 11, 2016 at 2:30 PM

If you had the chance to ask the creator of Toontown any question, what would you ask? The man who brought Toontown Online to life in 2003, Jesse Schell, is back for another year of ToonFest! We'd love to fill you in on the details, but perhaps it's better to let him do the talking:

Last year, we asked Jesse Schell to remotely take part in our ToonFest celebration by answering ten questions submitted from players just like YOU!

It was such a success that we reached out to him and asked if he would be willing to do it again, and he didn't hesitate for a moment to say yes for the Toontown community. After all, there are many questions still left to be answered!

Click Here to see the questions and answers from last year's event.




Here's everything you need to know:

  • All players, whether attending OMG!Con or not, can submit a question right over here to be answered by Jesse Schell. All questions must be submitted by 11:59PM Toontown Time (PST) on Friday, May 20.
  • Us folks on the Toontown Rewritten team will be working with Jesse to choose the best questions about Toontown, which will be answered straight from the man himself via recording at our main ToonFest panel. The video will also be uploaded on our YouTube Channel.
  • The Top 10 Toons who submit the best questions will receive a small Toontown Prize Pack complete with some of the items we'll be giving out at OMG!Con, along with some exclusives!
  • Players from all around the world are able to enter: This contest is not restricted to the US.

Click Here to submit your question!


After starting Toontown, Jesse Schell left Walt Disney Imagineering to become a professor of Entertainment Technology at Carnegie Mellon University and create his own game studio, Schell Games. Jesse continues to follow Toontown and its fans today in hopes of officially bringing it back, and is an active supporter of Toontown Rewritten. You may have even seen him running around town on his red rabbit, Jaymo!

You can earn more about Jesse on his personal website, or the official Schell Games webpage.




It's never too late to come to OMG!Con, so make sure to read all about it on our announcement and the other posts from the blog if you're still thinking about coming.

We're only one month away from the event, and we'd love to see you there. In the meantime, everyone, have fun in Toontown!

Oh cool!

King Loopy Wackypocket said on May 11, 2016 at 4:16 PM
you were originally (to my knowledge) supposed to star with 3 gags (cant remember which ones) so that you could have all the gags... why was this removed / scraped?

King Teddy Cheezy Berry said on May 11, 2016 at 4:29 PM
What's your favorite gag?

Lucky said on May 11, 2016 at 4:32 PM

Bacon Taco said on May 11, 2016 at 4:44 PM

Sans said on May 11, 2016 at 4:56 PM
Were there any unreleased clothing items that you could possibly share the names of with us?

Simon said on May 11, 2016 at 5:00 PM
I would like to know why the original toontown got cancelled?

Queen Jazzy Glitterberry said on May 11, 2016 at 5:02 PM
My question is which one of the cogs in toontown would be the hardest to defeat if you played in TTR yourself? :)

Butterscotch said on May 11, 2016 at 5:15 PM
I can't wait for ToonFest! I wonder what questions will be answered!

rosie said on May 11, 2016 at 5:18 PM

Esme said on May 11, 2016 at 5:31 PM
Sadly, I can't go to Toonfest! :( My question is... Why did you decide after finishing DDL and suits (Donalds Dreamland), you can only pick Just For Fun! toontasks?

jared ex said on May 11, 2016 at 5:51 PM
this is really deep. Why, why make toon town.

Senor Hotdog said on May 11, 2016 at 6:25 PM
Are there any Easter eggs in Toontown? How did your experience of helping make Toontown help you with other games you have designed? I know Toontown was inspired by toon tag but, how did Disney find out about you? Who designed the artwork for the Toontown cards?

olivia cuddlemuffin said on May 11, 2016 at 7:03 PM

Ugly Corny said on May 11, 2016 at 9:39 PM
Toontown 2.0. Is there any possibility of that project being completed by either Disney or Schell Games in the near future?

Deputy Chunky Wackymuddle said on May 11, 2016 at 9:49 PM
How could this game be revamped and revitalized so it feels like an enjoyable game again, especially with the ridiculous amount of grinding still present in the game?

Lightning McMonkey said on May 12, 2016 at 2:10 AM
Did you actually plan to release Chairman ? ( If he exists ) Was he replaced with the CEO , or if he was scrapped and if yes , then why ? Also , if he was going to be released would he look like the big robot that Scrooge McDuck activated in the original Toontown download progologue ( or whatever its called ) , or the cogish looking one which fans speculate that his statue might be in Sellbot HeadQuarters ?

Bunny Hop Nibble said on May 12, 2016 at 3:17 AM

Hey JESSE What Are You Planning To Do About The Chairman We Need More Information On The Chairman.

Fluffy TTR said on May 12, 2016 at 8:34 PM
Sometimes I feel like no one reads the entire post. Other Toons keep submitting their questions in the comments. Anyways, I wish everyone good luck with their questions. I'm never going to be able to come up with a good one... :P

Magnus said on May 12, 2016 at 10:10 PM

The Oinkinator said on May 15, 2016 at 12:51 AM
I would love to know, were the manholes added to the cog HQs just a detail added in an update or was something being planned? There is a lot of theories on this subject.

Massive said on May 15, 2016 at 8:58 AM
Cool!

flint said on May 15, 2016 at 9:23 AM
