TheCW4Kids versus Toonzai, the State of the 4Kids Union


TheCW4Kids versus Toonzai, the State of the 4Kids Union

Starting this fall, TheCW4Kids is no more. In it’s place, 4Kids Entertainment is launching a re-branded programming block dubbed Toonzai. Promos have already begun airing on The CW Saturday mornings to a number of mixed reviews, largely seemingly tainted against 4Kids. Our question to you; is that fair? 4Kids has been through a number of shakeups of late, and it doesn’t have the greatest fan-pleasing history across the internet. So is Toonzai a move in the right direction? Will fans still disapprove of the dubbing? What are your thoughts on the matter, ToonBarn audience?

4Kids Entertainment’s Chairman and CEO Al Kahn made a number of points on the company’s future at the recent earnings report presentation. In the report, he admitted “4Kids had a difficult second quarter as revenue across our separate business segments came in below expectations.” The hope with Toonzai, is to return the company to its state several years ago; licensing toons from other regions, and dubbing in English voice overs for an American audience.

Toonzai will boast a number of animated series from Japan, including new episodes of Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s and Dragon Ball Z Kai, as well as the return of Sonic X, Dinosaur King and Yu-Gi-Oh!, the original “cardtoon.” We’ll wait to hear from you guys to tell us if the plan is working.
