Toon City, Oklahoma is a Fanfic Series by Mitchell Movie Productions, AKA: Bearquarter2008. Who is well known on Deviantart for his work on the "Bearquarter's Toy Story" trilogy.

The author combines the universes of Cartoon Network, Disney XD, some Saturday Morning Cartoons we grew up with, DreamWorks Animation and Nickelodeon as well as a few other outside sources and original material, and places them in a town called Toon City, a fictional small Oklahoma town, and places the main kids in either everyday situations, or in situations in which one wouldn't normally see them in in their original shows, for example, Jimmy Neutron taking up Superman's mantle to honor his late idol's legacy, or Lydia Deetz from the Beetlejuice Cartoon dealing with and living with a bunch of clones of herself, no thanks to Beetlejuice. Either way, the characters hang out with each other and go off on either realistic adventures or whacky and zany adventures. While some of the cast remains more or less the same as their original counterparts, some characters were given added depth to their personalities to the author's liking.

The author came up with this while making a parody of the Spongebob episode, "Band Geeks", which can be read here. Since then, he's been trying to start up his series, and after a while, he was able to get started with the series, which is slowly getting viewers.

The first two test episodes can be read here, here, click here for the pilot,, and for the episodes, click here


Toon City, Oklahoma provides examples of:

  • Adaptational Badass: Danny Phantom in this fanfic series has gone from "Spider-Man but with Ghosts" to being more or less similar to Batman, sporting a different suit, and being able to take down criminals with or without his ghost powers.
  • Adaptational Backstory Change: This applies to two different heroes:
    • Jimmy Neutron: He invents because he wants to be like his idol, Superman, he wants to use his gifted intelligence and inventing skills for the greater good. But when Doomsday and Superman fight and die, Jimmy feels that he needs to honor Superman's legacy.

    • Danny Phantom: While Danny gets his powers in a different way, once he loses his friends and parents due to his enemy killing them, Danny becomes more vigilant, violent and vengeful.
  • Adaptational Heroism: As stated above, the characters are either changed slightly or significantly from the characters we all have seen on television or streaming services. One example is Jimmy Neutron, due to the fact that we never had a backstory on why he invents. In this world, Jimmy looks up to Superman and Jimmy uses his inventions to try to help the world so he could be a hero like him when he grows up. He starts to feel silly about his dreams when he screws up whenever it comes to inventing, feeling inadequate to his idols. But once he feels the need to take up the mantle of the Man of Steel, he tries to do the best he can to be a hero, so no one forgets what Superman represented even after his battle with Doomsday.
  • Adaptational Villainy: This may be applied to for Xiaolin Showdown Jack Spicer when the Author decided to have Jack Spicer more villainous and threatening than his Lighterand Softer Light-hearted Counterpart.
  • Big Brother Instinct: After the above-mentioned villain killed Sam and Tucker, this is the reason why Danny Phantom doesn't let her little sister, Danielle, help with crime-fighting, fearing she may be killed if she wasn't careful.
  • Massive Multiplayer Crossover: In case you've forgotten already, read above.
  • Other Me Annoys Me: This is applied towards Lydia's Clones in "Splitting Lyds". They behave more energetic and more childlike that Lydia, much to her annoyance.
  • Parody: The series will have one shot shorts that parody other shows as well.
  • Related in the Adaptation:
    • Penny Peterson and Cindy Vortex were from two different films/shows, and the author decided to make them sisters, meaning that Cindy's actual parents from the Jimmy Neutron universe are, in this reality, her Aunt and Uncle.
    • It has been hinted by the author that Lydia is the niece of Doctor Strange.
    • A certain pair of twins has been hinted at being related to Iron Man as his nieces.
    • The author has revealed that Jimmy's mom will be the sister of Lyle Lanley.
  • Reimagining the Artifact: This is applied to Adam and Barbara Maitland, who were seen in the 1988 Beetlejuice movie, but were absent in the Beetlejuice animated Spin-Off. They make their debut in the test episode "Splitting Lyds", and the Author explains that Adam will have a bigger role in a story arc during the series.
  • Ship Tease: The author is hinting at a possible shipping between Lydia Deetz and Jimmy Neutron as a story arc.
  • Take That!!: There will be several of these.
    • The Second Episode does this in its flashback sequence when Jack Spicer, after kidnapping Danny's Family and friends while taking a concert audience hostage, says this:
    Jack Spicer: I know it's frustrating to have this rock show preempted, but look what you're getting instead: A whole truckload of mindless violence and property damage, everything that makes TV better than puppy love high school drama and over-the-top football-related story arcs on that NBC trash show.
  • X meets Y: This fic series is asically Cartoons meeting other shows like Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law. The characters seem to follow this trope as well, while still retaining elements of his canon self's personalities.
