Toonatics is a children's television programme that was first broadcast on Children's BBC between the summers of 1997 and 1998. The show was created, directed and presented by Paul Burnham (as Thomas 'Tommy' Toon). The show broadcast cartoons, which included Tom and Jerry and Looney Tunes, and played games in between each cartoon.


Every day Tommy Toon's mum went out to the shop and told her son "Thomas, Thomas, I'm going to the shop. So you'd better not start watching those crazy cartoons!" But regardless of his Mum's orders, Tommy doesn't care and invites four Toonatics to join him watching some cartoons with him for half an hour, and also to play a few mini-games in-between, before Tommy's mum comes back from the shop.

52 episodes of the show were produced by Paul Burnam and the BBC.
