*Gravity everywhere in Toontown was lowered, allowing Toons to jump higher.
 
*Walking in the streets would sometimes trigger a [[Grand Piano]] to fall from the sky and crush you. When that happens, [[Staff#Developers|McQuack]] says "Whoops! My bad!".
 
*Toons would have a random Toon species sound each play session rather than their own species.
 
*Every minute a random effect would be applied to your Toon. This included:
 
**Turning back to your regular Toon
 
**Turning into [[Staff#Artists|Roger Dog]]
 
**Turning into a [[Big Toon]]
 
**Turning into a [[Small Toon]]
 
**Turning into a [[Flat Portrait]]

The most common form of silliness that tends to occur during April Toons Week is [[Gravitational anomalies|lack of gravity]]. However, there is no telling of how silly Toontown may get each year. The list of Silly Surges that have occurred throughout the years have been identified below.

*Barbecue Headquarters (or BBQHQ) was released. This was a prank by the team that made Toons think that [[Bossbot Headquarters]] was being released. However, the Bossbot HQ tunnel led to [[ToonFest 2014|ToonFest]] renamed as Barbecue Headquarters. [[Flippy]] and [[Fluffy]] both had different lines than in ToonFest 2014, and Flippy was wearing a [[Chef's Chapeau]].
