File:Toon Town 6202.jpg

Back when the world was a ball of ferns, when a good front lawn was a half-acre of bubbling slime, a giant amoeba split in two. The front half, the end with the brains, called itself Los Angeles. The butt end became Toon Town.

Cartoons are not real. They're made with art supplies and brought to life by animators and Voice Actors. It's sad but it's true.

Hey, wait a minute! We seem to have made a wrong turn at Albu-coiky! Now we're in Toon Town, that very special district of Fantasy Land where cartoon characters are people, just like you and me. Sometimes, they exist as a separate and independent species, and sometimes, the place itself transforms humans into Toons. But all details aside, Toon Town is a loony sort of place where Cartoon Physics and the Rule of Funny reign supreme. Expect the Roger Rabbit Effect almost every time.

Not to be confused with the MMORPG, Toontown Online. Sometimes used as a nickname for Saskatoon, Saskatchewan by its natives, but that has nothing to do with the trope either.

Examples of Toon Town include:

Anime and Manga

Comic Books



Live-Action TV

Theme Parks

  • The official mythos of the Disney Theme Parks states that the costumed characters are the real characters. Then there's Mickey's Toon Town and Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin.
  • Toon Lagoon in Universal Studios' Islands of Adventure can be seen as an example of this.

Video Games

  • Toontown Online, a MMORPG inspired by the Trope Namer.
  • The Toon World from the very meta Game Cube title, Go! Go! Hypergrind!
  • The Cartoon Wasteland from Epic Mickey, home to neglected and forgotten Disney characters.
    • Epic Mickey also brings us the hub map of OsTown, which is based on the theme park version of the trope and is sort of a more blatant example, though there's still some pretty grim stuff in the area.
      • Close inspection of the town sign reveals that the name originally was Toontown before Oswald took over and changed it.
