Toontown RewritTEN: 10 Toontastic Years!

Posted by The Toontown Team on September 19, 2023 at 11:57 AM

Toontown Rewritten is a "Community Server" for Disney's Toontown Online. A team of skilled Toons, including myself, have spent the past ten years engineering our own implementation of the Toontown server architecture so that this game can continue. These are not a bunch of empty promises, nor a remake of Toontown Online. This is the exact same game that we have all known and loved for two decades now; however, this time, it is being run by Toons, for Toons.

Ten years ago, on this day, at this hour, at this minute, I typed a very similar paragraph on Toontown Central Forums to introduce Toontown Rewritten to the world. Disney had just closed the doors of Toontown Online, and before any tears could be shed, our team was racing to announce the good news as quickly as possible: Toontown was being rewritten.

Now, I'm back to announce even better news that we could have never dreamed of back then: Today officially kicks off Toontown RewritTEN: The 10-Year Anniversary of Toontown Rewritten!

Toontown RewritTEN Logo

My name is Joey Ziolkowski, and one of the greatest joys of my life has been serving as Creative Director of Toontown Rewritten for the past ten years. People often thank us for saving Toontown, but that wasn't us... It was all of you.

Your kindness, resilience, friendships, humor, and joy are what keeps Toontown going every day. Instead of looking back on this date as a dark one, we look back and celebrate. Let me be clear: YOU saved Toontown!

Here are just a few of the wonderful ways Toontown Rewritten is thriving thanks to all of you who help us keep the Toontown community alive: 

  • Nearly 2.5 million registered accounts
  • Over 60,000 unique monthly players on average
  • Developed 11 new expansions to bring new life to Toontown
  • Hosted 6 real-world ToonFest events with hundreds of attendees
  • Population of 4,436,670 Toons (and counting!)

We can't thank you enough for these 10 Toontastic years. However, we've been cooking up a small new update to express our gratitude!

Toontown's Cartoonival Logo

The Cartoonival Grounds are officially open, and we're upgrading the event this year in celebration of Toontown RewritTEN with some new bells and whistles! Head over to Acorn Acres and enter the Event Grounds Tunnel to find a whole slew of activities and prizes available from now until October 20.

Meet Riggy Marole

"Who's Riggy Marole?" Well, describing Riggy is no easy feat. He's the host with the most, and he ain't afraid to boast! He's a rabbit with a habit for vanity and just plain insanity! He's also got a few screws loose. But the point is, Riggy Marole is the one-and-only host of Toontown's Cartoonival!

Play Cartoonival Games

In the Event Grounds, you'll find all sorts of fun games to earn Cartoonival Tokens! Of course, there's the standard Toontown fare like fishing, trampolines, and cannons. Plus, you may have hit targets with a water sprayer before at a regular ol' carnival, but have you ever tried hitting them with cakes? You can even head over to the Duck Tank to throw a taste of sweet revenge at Cleff for his dreaded ToonTask!

Earn Exclusive Prizes

After playing games, bring those Cartoonival Tokens over to any of the Token Takers around the grounds, and you can collect exclusive prizes such as clothing, accessories, furniture, and even Merry Multipliers to increase your XP bonus! This year, the Toon Tailors have been hard at work to introduce dozens of new clothing items and accessories in celebration of the anniversary! Check out a few of the new items below:

Plus, you can enter the code toontastic-ten in your Shticker Book to redeem a limited-edition Toontown RewritTEN shirt and party hat available only this year!

Use the code "toontastic-ten" for your own exclusive 10th anniversary code item!

...and MORE!

To keep the Cartoonival craze continuing, Riggy Marole will be back on the blog throughout Toontown's Cartoonival to reveal more new content coming to this year's event -- including a new way to earn Tokens based on a popular request, a new activity to celebrate 10 years of Toontown, and community events that you won't want to miss. Stay TOONed!

Once again, we can't thank you enough for TEN YEARS of Toontown Rewritten. You've brought us so much laughter and love over the years, and we can only hope that we've been able to give the same back to you with the work we pour into this game.

Toons of the world, UNITE!

This is absolutely amazing! It's crazy that you guys have been up and running for so long, and it's a good thing! The TTO Shut Down may have been a tragic event for millions of people, at least, we have you, and us, to thank for keeping ToonTown alive, I hope TTR Stays up for as much time as possible so that it can introduce future generations to this masterpiece of an MMO!

I remembered when they announced the closure and tears ran down my eyes, when the final day came I remembered running out of my School Bus and ran home to get on to my computer but I couldn't log in due to the log in error that happened just hours before the servers went offline permanently, I was shattered I wasn't on to say my final goodbyes. I just googled aggressively on News of the Toontown closure and I saw a site called "Toontown Rewritten" mentioned so I checked it out and here we are on a new chapter, And I can't believe to this day this game is thriving and going! Thank you to the Team for 10 years on keeping our joy alive! Heres to many more!

Dog Gone Funny said on September 19, 2023 at 12:41 PM
We wouldn't be here for the last 10 years without the wonderful staff and volunteers who keep the ideas flowing, the game play, well playing and anybody and everybody in the background and foreground that keep the game moving along. THANK YOU ALL !!!

Strato said on September 19, 2023 at 2:45 PM
I cannot fully put into words just how amazing it is that TTR has made it this far and is still going strong, and how Toontown continues to thrive because of it. I owe so much to TTR and am so incredibly grateful for how much the team has done and how they've kept the spirit of TTO as alive as ever throughout all these years. This game has so much sentimental value to me and makes me emotional for all the best reasons. Happy 10th birthday, Toontown Rewritten! <3

Thank you for bringing an awesome fun place to be back to all of us TOONERS.. Cheers to the future of another 10 years to come!

I simply cannot thank you enough for the hard work you put into keeping this game enjoyed by many! Now, as we prepare ourselves for the upcoming Cartoonival, there's only one thing left to do. Toons of the World, UNITE!

Just got back from a trip to California, and I gotta say, it's so nice to come back and see this great post! Thanks so much, and I'll see you at Cartoonival!

Barget Wondersnout said on September 20, 2023 at 7:05 AM
Joey, you're a real hero. To be able to revive a game as big and as great as Toontown must take a lot of work, but it's a labor of love! Together with a bunch of other great Toons, you were able to bring back this great game known as Toontown... and then some! At this point, I'm sounding like a broken record, but just... THANK YOU! Thank you Joey, for everything you've done. (And you're welcome!) Okay, now let's get to the fun part! CARTOONIVAL! YAY!!!!!

Rolling Crocodile said on September 20, 2023 at 7:12 AM
Boy, those clothes and accessories sure look cool! I can't wait to win some sweet new Cartoonival swag! Happy Toontown RewritTEN! (throws a birthday cake)

Mr. Duck said on September 20, 2023 at 8:32 AM
Im so proud to be part of this moment.

Rolling Crocodile said on September 20, 2023 at 9:22 AM
Ah yes, Cartoonival is here again! Nothing like the colorful confetti, bean bags, and fireworks, the sounds of flying pies, cannon blasts, and growling bears, the smell of fresh-baked pies, the taste of fresh-baked pies, the feeling of fresh-baked pies being thrown at your face and getting your clothes all pie-stained, (mmm, pie!) and overall just a good, fun party! Happy Toontown RewritTEN!

Ginger Sparklesticks said on September 20, 2023 at 10:26 AM
YAY how exciting! Happy TOONIVERSARY!!! :D There's definitely always a reason to celebrate here in Toontown. So thankful every day that the game we all know and love is still thriving, along with the amazing friendships I've made along the way. The Cartoonival and Winter holiday times are my favorites. Blessed to be part of such a TOONTASTIC community, 10 years down and many more! <3

Yellow (the Cat) said on September 20, 2023 at 1:09 PM
The dark past is over. I'm glad you did that, because I missed Toontown so much. And now, I am happy here today.

Curly said on September 20, 2023 at 2:33 PM
happy bday ttr :D

Toonsworth said on September 20, 2023 at 3:09 PM
10 years.... 10 year ago, I was a different Duck. Yours truly was out on the front lines defending our Toontown from the dreaded Mover & Shakers, who have seem to have been evicted from their Field Office Residencies. Do I miss the old way our town use to be? I do not. 10 years ago, Loan Sharks would pick our pockets every month, or an entire year, & do it all over again once the time came. Do I miss the old way our town used to be? I do not. 10 years ago, I was a Duck in the great cog war, seltzer and cakes in hand, only for those cogs to get the upper hand when the Elites came to play... But not before I was Rewritten into this new Toon World you see before you. Do I miss the old way our town used to be? I do not. 9 years ago, our world was given a new name, though a bit funny at the start, has now become the greatest community the world has ever seen, even the Chess Wizards would be at gasp. Do I enjoy the new way our town has developed? I do. For our community has learned well of what is and isn't toony. To that, I only have this phrase to say, Toons Of The World, Unite!

I don't think I've been to Toontown's Cartoonival before, but it should be fun. I'll be looking forward to it! Here's to TEN years of Toontown RewritTEN, and many more to come!

Gold Mouse Cool Toon said on September 21, 2023 at 10:09 AM
Happy Tooniversary, Toons of the Tooniverse!!! It's been many, MANY long years together, and I couldn't be happier to be a part of it and have gotten this far together.

Prof Bingo said on September 21, 2023 at 10:31 AM
I picked up toontown online when I was a young child and found a love for the game, and I was devastated when I learned that the game that got me into gaming was closing down. Thanks to the TTR team I have been able to continue my journey with one of my favorite games. Thank you TTR team!

Excited to experience Cartoonival! Been with you since the beginning and it never get's old.

Comrade Squeakin said on September 23, 2023 at 6:28 AM
Wow this made me emotional! I remember seeing the post on the forum, coming back every day for crumbs of news - waiting feverishly for beta only to get an alpha code for my birthday August 30, 2014, just in time for the first ToonFest - I can't believe it's been 10 years already! I am so glad you guys were dedicated enough to bring us Toons a forever home and provide me with an additional eight years of play that I thought I'd never get after TTO closed.

Jerry Mouse said on September 25, 2023 at 6:28 PM
Happy Tooniversary TTR! Congrats on 10 years!
