Toon In with Me is an American live-action/animated anthology comedy television series that airs weekday mornings on MeTV, with most elements of the series being aimed at children.

The show is hosted in live-action segments by Bill, MeTV's "cartoon curator", along with his puppet friend, Toony the Tuna. Each episode contains five animated shorts, including Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies shorts, Tom and Jerry and Tex Avery-directed MGM shorts, Betty Boop and Popeye cartoons from Fleischer Studios and Famous Studios, Pink Panther, Roland and Rattfink and The Inspector cartoons from DePatie–Freleng Enterprises and United Artists.

The show's premiere episode was seen by more than 500,000 viewers nationally.


Toon In with Me harkens back to locally-produced children's programs that aired from 1950s through the 1980s, with live-action host, comedy and puppet segments in between classic cartoons.

The show is hosted from the MeTV studios by Bill the Cartoon Curator (Bill Leff).

His co-host is Toony (Kevin Fleming), a cartoon-loving tuna, who Bill has to take care of while his owner, Goldie Fisher (Leila Gorstein) is away on a world tour. As they present various cartoons, Bill and Toony deal with various issues in the studio, as well as video-chatting with Goldie and receiving useful information from game show host Mr. Quizzer (also Fleming).

Each episode contains five classic animated shorts, and ends with Bill and Toony showing off drawings and photos sent in by fans via the show's website.
