Let me tell you a story. I started ToonJet in 2008 to introduce the current generation to a bit of culture from my childhood (I mean, I watched a lot of cartoons in my youth, but they weren't released in my childhood. I'm not that old...just FYI :D). At the time, there were no good places to watch cartoons online, so I began sharing my collection. Once I got a ways into development of the website, I decided to pursue monetizing my work as an incentive to stay busy.
A few years later, the YouTube corporate machine came barrelling through and began hitting me with copyright claims (at least a hundred) and demonetizing my videos at every turn. Soon, Google also deactivated all Adsense ads on ToonJet. I realized that hosting the videos myself would be too expensive for a hobbyist like myself, so eventually, I looked for other outlets to handle video streaming, with or without monetization. Cartoons are a love of mine, and I wasn't going to let the corporation snuff out the little guy. I went through several, and all of them eventually either shut down or started narrowing their focus so that only certain types of videos were allowed.
All of this is to say that although I love posting cartoons and made it a hobby of mine to be able to bring you the coolest in public domain videos, it hasn't been without its difficulties. I am announcing that the site is now set up to accept tips in the form of cryptocurrency through the Brave web browser. If you want to contribute to further development on ToonJet and you're already a Brave user, click on the triangle icon in the address bar and get started with BAT (Brave's Basic Attention Tokens).
Either way, ToonJet will always strive to bring you the best cartoon classics, so stick with us. The corporations can take your money but they can't take your soul!
