Celebrating the Community for Toontown's 19th Birthday
Posted by The Toontown Team on June 2, 2022 at 2:00 PM
On September 19th, 2013, Disney’s Toontown Online closed its doors after running for ten long years. Many people thought this closure would mean the end of Toontown for good -- so who woulda thunk that we’d be here for nine MORE years?! As is tradition, break out the party hats, birthday cake, and... beach balls? Today is Toontown’s 19th Birthday, which means it’s time to celebrate!!!
It’s incredible to think about how long Toontown has been around, even when it was meant to shut down so long ago. It means so much to all of us on the Toontown Rewritten Team that it’s still alive and well after so many years, which wouldn’t be possible without the passion that you can find all over Toontown’s community.
From creating an endless amount of fan art and videos and even Content Packs, to hosting fun-filled events in the game like our awesome Toontown Partners do, to making entirely unique takes on Toontown separate from our own -- all of these and more are a huge part of why that game that shut down nearly nine years ago is still thriving.
An astonishing amount of fan works, fun screenshots, and more have been featured across the Toontown Blog over the years. We just wish we could feature it all again! Hey, wait... Why not?

Whether you’re reminiscing or seeing these for the first time, you should check out everything above. It’s a huge blast to go through and see everyone’s creations! Seriously, without all of you, Toontown wouldn’t be as great as it is today.
If you’re looking for even more to delve into, this may be a good time to mention the Toontown Preservation Project, which released for Toontown’s birthday last year. Hosted at toontown.online, this is a massive digital museum that’s filled with various concepts, artwork, design docs, and more from Toontown Online -- so much that you could just get lost looking through it all! There’s been some sweet additions since the release last year, such as the original design docs for Field Offices. Those documents, among many other things, were provided to us by the community. If you have anything you’d like to contribute, you can see how at the site above.
Toontown has quite the rich history, with everything across its development and from within the community. We’re amazed that we can still provide updates through Toontown Rewritten to this day, like our recently-released Sellbot Task Force: The Last Laff. Now, to finish things off... Back by popular demand, beach balls will be appearing in every Playground until June 9th to celebrate! Thank you all so much for playing, creating, and keeping this community as amazing as it is!
Happy Birthday, Toontown!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TOONTOWN
Happy Birthday ToonTown Online! Can’t wait for the 20th birthday because If I heard correctly… something big is gearing up for that year?
It is crazy to think this game has been in my life since 2007. It is so rare to be able to literally relive your childhood, but thankfully all of you are around! Here's to another 19 years!
To think that Toontown and it’s community have been around for 19 years is insane. And how lucky we are to have a community just as passionate about the game as all those years ago! Happy Birthday Toontown!!!!!!!
Happy Birthday, Toontown! Glad we're all here to celebrate :)
Happy Birthday Toontown!!!
I am so excited
Happy birthday Toontown!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, TOONTOWN! I HAVE BEEN HERE FROM THE BEGINNING! :D

Happy Birthday, Toontown!
Happy birthday Toontown! Thanks keeping this enriching online experience alive even after so long, here's to 19 years before
Crazy how long I've been playing both TTR and the original... thanks Rewritten for another year of wacky slapstick fun!
happy birthday toontown thank you so much for being my favorite game for now 14 straight years <333
Happy birthday Toontown! Crazy to see that the game has been around for so long, even though it's in someone else's hands now. Here's to another 19 years to the best MMORPG out there, and to the TTRW team, thank you for brightening up all of our days and helping us relive these memories.
HAVE THE HAPPIEST OF BIRTHDAYS TOONTOWN!!!! I'm extremely thankful to have you as a big part of my childhood!! :D
My goodness it's old!
Happy birthday, Toontown! Reminiscing on the past, I remember how sad I was when TTO closed down; I cried because it was a game that brought my family to have fun times together (even though we all played at different paces). A little while later, I found TTR. I am so glad TTR came to life and we can enjoy it just like we did in the past (even with a new twist), but now I spend a lot of time on my own having fun. It has been in my life since 2005, so it's crazy to think about it being around for another 16 years of my life. Thanks for all the hard work and effort you put in here, TTR team! <3
Happy birthday toontown! Wow, 19 years!
This game means so much to me and I'm very grateful for the TTR team for keeping it alive! It's insane to think that the original game is 19 years old now, Happy birthday Toontown! <3
I've been playing Toontown on and off since 2007. This game and community will always have a special place in my heart because I feel like we've all grown up together. From summer breaks and snow days spent slaying cogs to many of us now working alongside them (LOL). Thank you to the Toontown Rewritten team, and all my fellow toons, for continuing to keep the toon spirit alive. No matter what happens in-game or IRL, I know the cogs will never win :)
To imagine a game outliving it's own death by fans would have been a dream to those kids back in the early 2010's, but this is a thing that has come to a reality thanks to dedicated fans on seeing the true potential this game has, and seeing other long since shut down MMO's get their own fan revivals following after it. Here's to those incredible 19 years and more to come!
Happy 19th Birthday, Toontown!!! It's just, wow, it's so amazing to see how much this game has grown since a couple years ago. I've grown up playing this game, and these past few years have been a blast! So thank you all so much for making this game possible!!!
Happy Birthday, Toontown!
Happy birthday Toontown!! :D thanks for all of the amazing memories :’)

Ohhhhhh, that explains the beach balls xD I was confused for a sec there
I never really got to play Toontown online that much while it was still around, so I'm so happy that they were able to revive the game so I could get a chance to enjoy it! I've gotten to play with my dad, my brother and my sister, and even some real life friends! Happy birthday! :D!
Happy 19th birthday ToonTown!
Happy birthday Toontown, and many more! <3 Can't wait to see what the future holds for everyone's favorite game! :)
