  • Approval of God: Jesse Schell, the former design director for TTO, has given his personal approval of Rewritten, happy to see that the game he originally helped create still has a lasting legacy and is being kept alive by devoted fans.
  • Development Hell: Doodles in Rewritten spent a long time in this state because of how much they choked servers on any attempts to implement them. As it turns out, their original coding was quite poorly written, and they only survived on Disney's servers simply by virtue of them being such a huge multi-million dollar company. Even other fan servers tried to "beat" Rewritten to getting them added, only to realize they weren't kidding on how much demand they required on the servers. Compared to all the other features that were originally standard in Toontown Online that were released within at least a year of Rewritten becoming an open beta, Doodles weren't implemented until three years after, in 2017, and only then it was because they were able to rewrite the coding for Doodles to a point where they weren't such a strain on the servers.

  • Doing It for the Art: Rewritten was made solely to let ToonTown live on after its closing. The developers are avoiding any and all ways of making money off the game, and are paying for servers completely out of pocket. The developers have dropped memberships entirely, and will deny any form of donation.
  • Fan Community Nicknames: "Toons", naturally.
  • Killer App: Before its closing, ToonTown had an average of 10,000 players a day. Rewritten has a smaller, yet still large, average of 3000 players a day.
  • Money, Dear Boy: The sole reason for the original game's closing, along with other Disney MMOs, was because Disney wanted to shift focus to a certain other Disney MMO that was making bank at the time, amongst other things.
  • Official Fan-Submitted Content: A whole new slew of jokes told at Knock-Knock Doors were added in Rewritten, all submitted by fans in a contest.

  • Promoted Fanboy: All the fans who are working to develop Toontown Rewritten and other servers.
  • Rereleased for Free: Memberships were completely dropped one month prior to closing.
  • What Could Have Been:

  • Why Fandom Can't Have Nice Things: Light example, but True Friends note  are supposedly not going to be implemented to Rewritten due to moderation issues. This stems from its history in TTO, where even before SpeedChat+ came out, people managed to exploit Loophole Abuse to get the secret friend codes without having to know each other (it involved using trickery with the "Move Furniture" mode in your house, organizing your furniture to look like each letter and digit in your Secret/True Friend code). This consequently made it way too easy for complete strangers to get access to a near completely unrestricted chat, especially after it became near common knowledge on how to do it.
