June 2, 2003 – Disney’s Toontown Online Officially Launches

“Ever wonder what it’d be like to live life as a toon?”

On June 2, 2003, the online community game Disney’s Toontown Online officially launched. The game was a multiplayer online role-playing game, and was developed by Disney’s Virtual Reality Studio, Schell Games, and Frogchildren Studios. Users could create their own toon avatar, and battle against antagonists called Cogs. There was also an early social media component to the game known as “SpeedChat,” with pre-approved phrases that users could use to chat with other users. The game was officially shut down on September 19, 2013.
