    Air bumpers that confuse viewers into thinking they've accidently tuned into one of the adults only channels.

    Actually, since April Fool's is on a Saturday this year, I'd like them to air the entire Saturday Night lineup (including Toonami) as is, but have Miguzi branding and bumpers.

    Going to make a bet that they will continue the retro Toonami branding and extend the block for the entire night with retro shows. That way they will also manage to celebrate its 5th anniversary.

    Since the Boomerang channel launched on April 1st, 2000 (which was a Saturday), maybe they can go back to their lineup from the first day and use the old branding.

    They should switch out DBZ Kai's airing with the Ocean dub equivalent.

    I don't think they would want to waste money on that.

    That's the dub I grew up with, btw xD

    They should air Rick and Morty's season 3 premiere in a little box in the corner like they did with the Aqua Teen movie. I would be so mad yet amused at the same time.

    I mean, they could literally do anything and it would be better then last year. The joke last year was that there was nothing.

    What if they switched the feed to Adult Swim UK on FOX? :D

    While it sounds amusing, that wouldn't work because of the time difference. If they switched to the UK feed at midnight EST, it would just be an hour of American Dad. They would have to cut it off after that, because Cops comes on which Turner may not have rights to broadcast in the US.

    That's true. Hm. Maybe they could pre-record it then? Easiest for them would be to cut transmission and close down for the night. But I don't think many people would get it.

    I hope nothing because Samurai Jack would have a new episode that night.

    It would probably not be affected, because it would be within an hour of April 2nd. By that time, whatever April Fool's plans they have would start to run out of steam.

    Did they ever reveal THAT was the joke? Because last year was harsh, if you were tuning in expecting something...

    What if they don't do anything this year either?

    Still have fond memories of that. Still remember sitting through that accident as well.

    ---------------
    This wont happen, but it'd be great if they flipped their entire lineup, so the 5:30am show air at 8pm, etc. That'd mean new Samurai Jack at 2:30am though so obviously that wont happen. Maybe they could do that next year since it'll be on a Sunday.
    ---------------
    How about their comedy broadcasts in Spanish with faux English subtitles?
    ---------------
    Other thought is the portion of comedy from 8:30-11 could be 10 broadcasts of the Harvey Birdman episode "Guitar Control" - or because there's plenty of the same episode, 5 broadcasts of "Boo Boo Runs Wild"
