Toonami (Australian block) also known as Toonami Australia, was a programming block that premiered on Cartoon Network in Australia on July 7, 2001 and last aired in August 2006. Originally the block only aired on Saturdays and Sundays with a Midnight rerun each night.[1] However it soon expanded to weekdays, and for a number of years could be seen seven days a week.

Most of the block's programming consisted of anime, including already popular shows such as Dragon Ball Z, which had already been on Cartoon Network Australia for years, as well as the Australian premiere of several Japanese anime and a few North American animated series.
