## I don't know how big of a part they played in it, but DC Comics (along with Warner Bros.) did collaborate with AdultSwim to make the ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1AOI79rLovI Robot Chicken DC Comics Special]]''. Anyone who's seen ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' knows that that show is the complete opposite of kid-friendly.

Answered the question regarding Blue Exorcist & Hellsing Ultimate.
to:
**Hellsing Ultimate is no longer listed but it is possible that Toonami acquired longer streaming rights for Aniplex shows such as Blue Exorcist, Gurren Lagann, and Sword Art Online II.

* How does Toonami manage to make hits out of misses? Dragon Ball and ''Sailor Moon'' bombed when they first came to America, EurekaSeven didn't do so well on Toonami and DeadmanWonderland flopped, yet those series do well on Toonami. I'm sure there are other examples I don't have....how does Toonami do it? ** ''DBZ'' and ''Anime/SailorMoon'' not only got the advantage of finally airing on a network that had a specific niche (they premiered and bombed in syndication and on USANetwork, respectively), but being packaged with similar American shows to make them go down easier. ''EurekaSeven'' first aired during [as] anime's "wilderness years" and wasn't particularly well-promoted--though it's worth noting that it's still not a "hit", and rides pretty close to the other reruns. And ''DeadmanWonderland'' was clearly made with more American sensibilities in mind, so of course it'd have more appeal over here than in its native Japan.

* What shows can't Toonami air and why? Why can't Toonami air Green Lantern the Animated Series and Young Justice (despite getting Beware the Batman), Panty and Stocking, Transformers Prime and reair Bobobo (and anything else they have mentioned that they can't air)

** Adult Swim is strange. Their schedule is never stable. * Why are Blue Exorcist and Hellsing Ultimate still labeled under Adult Swim's page when programs that are no longer on Toonami's run before the loss of the later hours (Soul Eater, Sword Art Online and Black Lagoon for example) aren't?

* This probably has very little to do with Toonami, but what's with [adult swim] suddenly giving ''Dragon Ball Z Kai'' an encore timeslot after essentially cutting Toonami in half?

** Ironically, the ratings for the 24th were actually somewhat high (seeing as both Kai and Naruto got over a million hits, Inuyasha and One Piece got 800,000 and no show dipped under 600,000)
