It hosted various Toonami hits and had music videos, game reviews, and a comment box. It premiered July 17, 2006. Toonami Jetstream was only available in the United States. A computer with Windows 2000 SP4+, Windows XP, Windows Vista or Mac OS X, Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.5 (or higher) or Mozilla Firefox 1.5 (or higher), Adobe Flash 9, and a broadband connection were required.

After Toonami was cancelled on September 20, 2008, it was unknown if Toonami Jetstream would still be active, or would merge with Cartoon Network Video. On January 30, 2009, however, Toonami Jetstream suddenly got taken offline. As a result, Naruto moved to Cartoon Network Video, while other anime series like Zatch Bell! and Hikaru no Go are on Viz Media's website and One Piece is available on Funimation's official One Piece website.

Availability of each series

Toonami Jetstream had five shows that originally could not be found anywhere else in their dubbed format. These shows were The Prince of Tennis , Eyeshield 21 , MÄR , MegaMan Star Force , and Kiba . The first four were licensed by Viz Media and the last one by ADV Films, most of them for DVD releases. The fourth premiered on Toonami as an edited TV movie on August 25, 2007, and due to the online popularity of The Prince of Tennis and MÄR, they were added to the Toonami line-up on December 23, 2006, but Toonami Jetstream continued to show the world premiere English-language episodes, save for one MÄR episode that premiered on Toonami. However, as of June 2007, The Prince of Tennis and MÄR have been removed from the Toonami schedule, though a DVD release for them has begun. They were released on four 13-episode box sets and four 4-episode volumes respectively. MegaMan Star Force has not been seen on Toonami since its edited TV movie. It never had a DVD release. Only Eyeshield 21 has seen another release past 2010 in the United States, in four 13-episode subtitled-only DVD sets by Sentai Filmworks. However, all 145 episodes are available for streaming on Crunchyroll.

Premiere episodes of Naruto have been aired on TV, and previous episodes were available on thirty-two edited DVD volumes, and now available on eight uncut DVD sets by Viz Media. The subtitled uncut episodes are also streaming on Crunchyroll. The episodes on Toonami Jetstream were repeats.

Dragon Ball Z , Samurai Jack , Star Wars: Clone Wars , Dragon Ball , Pokémon Chronicles , Megas XLR and Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo have already been aired completely on Cartoon Network. While Samurai Jack has only aired a small portion of its episodes on Toonami, it has been completely aired on Cartoon Network and all four seasons of the show are available on DVD and a complete series set with the fifth season on Blu-ray by Warner Home Video and Cartoon Network, later Adult Swim. All of Megas XLR has aired on Toonami, except for one episode which was skipped due to an error and later shown on Miguzi. It was never released on DVD. Star Wars: Clone Wars and Dragon Ball Z have completely aired on Toonami and are also available on Blu-ray and DVD by Warner Home Video and Funimation respectively. Dragon Ball has also finished airing on Toonami and is available on DVD by Funimation. Both of those shows are available for streaming on FunimationNOW, and Dragon Ball can be streamed for free. Pokémon Chronicles has finished airing on Toonami (except for one episode which aired on the normal Cartoon Network schedule), and Toonami Jetstream merely showed reruns starting from the first episode, but a DVD release only happened in Australia by Beyond Home Entertainment. Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo finished airing and 2 DVD volumes of four episodes each were available containing the first 8 episodes by Illumitoon Entertainment, but a third volume that was going to be released was cancelled due to the distributor, Westlake Entertainment's, closure. It was then licensed by S'more Entertainment for a complete series release on two 38-episode sets, but subtitles for the Japanese version weren't included. Discotek Media picked up the show and plans to release the entire show with subtitles on the Japanese version on SDBD soon. None of these anime mentioned in this paragraph are available for streaming on Crunchyroll as of 2018.

Hikaru no Go was on ImaginAsian TV and was also available on DVD by Viz Media. It is currently unlicensed for any release as of 2018.

Pokémon has aired five seasons. The first one was "The Johto Journeys" episodes previously aired on Kids' WB!

All DVDs currently released for those seasons are by The Pokémon Company International and distributed by Viz Media.

One Piece aired reruns from Toonami, with the first 58 episodes having been aired on 4Kids TV prior to their Toonami premieres. It did not return to the site. 11 DVD volumes of the edited version were available from Viz Media, and it isn't available for legal streaming anymore in favor of Funimation's uncut dub that they started DVD releases for in 2008. The uncut version is currently streaming subbed on Crunchyroll and dubbed on FunimationNOW.

Zatch Bell! originally aired on Toonami for 77 episodes, and is in the midst of a DVD release by Viz Media, however, it seemingly vanished from television after episode 77.

There has been no word on the fate of MegaMan NT Warrior (which had aired on Kids' WB! for most of its run), but it is presumably being skipped in favor of Star Force.

Storm Hawks aired its complete first season on Cartoon Network, some on Toonami. However, season two has yet to come to the U.S., giving Jetstream the chance to air it, which they never did. It is currently being distributed by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

The first two movies to air on Jetstream were Naruto The Movie: Ninja Clash in the Land of Snow and Naruto the Movie 2: Legend of the Stone of Gelel

Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo , Dragon Ball , Dragon Ball Z , and One Piece was seemingly removed from the site despite not being finished or due to dubbing issues.

RSS feed

Toonami Jetstream was offering two ways to check for updates. The first is a RSS feed on their website. Alternatively, a downloadable program called the Toonami Jetstream Desktop Receiver collected and displayed updates automatically, allowing easy access to new additions. After Toonami Jetstream became defunct, Cartoon Network Video made a desktop receiver of its own.

Promotions with the Toonami Block

The Toonami website began advertising the service on July 3, 2006. The first television promo was during Cartoon Planet on July 9, 2006. The first Toonami promo was on July 15, 2006, during a special Naruto marathon.
