Toontown What's New Blog

News from your Favorite Typewriter!
Toons who pay attention to the finer points of Toontown may notice that they got something they asked for... The adorable 'Toon News... For the Amused' mascot - the jumping, googly-eyed typewriter - has begun acting a little differently.
Now, just like Clarabelle, the icon will only appear at the top of your screen when there's a new issue of the News for you to peruse. Once you've read it, the button will disappear. That leaves more room to watch the pies fly! After that, to look at any issue, click the new typewriter tab in your Schticker Book! (And to close it again, click the Schticker Book icon. Are you seeing the trend?)

Hi toontown goers!

pokey says:

this is perfect great job you are making toontown better!!!

Proff. Lionel Dynopockets says:

However much embarresed I am to say I've forgotten there IS toon news, this will help me to remember a little more, because I always am using my Schticker book. Nice idea, Toontown!

ToonCouncil says:

Glad it's easier for you to read the news now, Proff. Lionel Dynopockets!

Spike SuperPow says:

i agree with Miss Melody Wonderpounce Toontown IS getting more perfect EVERY single day!

Halloween Kitty says:

Whoa! When I saw the toon news and closed it, the button dissappeared! At the first time i thought it was a bug but when I opened the stchicker book I saw a new button! Cool!

Zu Zu says:

I like how thew they inform you once if there is a new toon news paper. After I closed it by accident, it took me ten minutes to find it! But it certianly takes up less space than on top of your screen, annoying you.

Cuty Hippen says:

I thought that space in the sticker book looked a bit empty. I agree with Miss Melody Wondorpounce. This IS PERFECT! :D


the book news is easier to find and easier to read!! keep up the good work toontown council. great work lol :)

Captain Yippie Fizzlemonkey says:

miss fluffy giggle pow , 43laff says:

It's much easyier to read the news now so u dont need to go up to the top of the computer and click it! But know you can open your book and you look on the side and see it and "click" on it! plz reply!

Pillow Pet says:

That is a great idea Flippy! i always forget where the news icon is and now i know where it is!!! TOONTOWN ROCKS!!!!! :D

Miss Bubbles Zippenflinger says:

zzzz. meow! oh, hi, toontown! this new news paper in the sticker book sounds fantastic! i can't wait to try it out! Your Purr-fect Toontown! Thanks Toon Council and Flippy and Toons!

Clanci says:

This will give me a perfect chance to catch up so I can finally know what's going on in toontown each week!

ToonCouncil says:

And there's always something happening in Toontown, Clanci! Not just every week but every day! That's why the Toon News is the best way to keep up with all the crazy fun.

Orange Cat says:

AWESOME!!! So much more screen room.

Lucky Leaf says:

Cool! I was going online like a day ago and when I looked into my Shticker Book, There was the little typewriter going inside! Then I closed my book and looked to the place where the news had once belonged. And it wasn't there! I guessed that you guys had changed the stuff a bit, without looking in the news!

Gumbo says:

I think this is such a good idea! This way we can have more room to see what is going on when were playing. Thank you Toon Council! :)

Super Skippy Dandyscreech (61 laff) says:
