Toonami: Rising Sun was a short lived Toonami programming block that premiered on April 15, 2000 and ended the same year on October 14, 2000. The block initially ran Saturday mornings from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM.[1] On July 8, 2000, the schedule was moved to Saturday mornings from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM.

The block was canceled, mostly so Cartoon Network's sister network's (The WB) Saturday morning lineup did not have competition from within the company. However, the Rising Sun was revived in February 2002 in a late night/early morning time slot. The revived block aired on Sunday mornings from 2-3 AM and consisted of only Superman: The Animated Series and Batman: The Animated Series for its entire run in 2002.
