'''April Toons Week''' is an annual event that begins on April 1st and ends on April 8th. The first week of April marks the time where [[Toontown (world)|Toontown]]'s silly levels rise at grand proportions. The event is based on [[wikipedia:April Fools' Day|April Fools' Day]], which is celebrated in many countries on the first day of April.

'''April Toons' Week''' is an annual event which starts on April 1st and ends soon afterwards, depending on the year. It is a time when [[Toons]] play practical jokes, and hilarious features such as low gravity are implemented. The event is based on April Fools' Day which is celebrated in many countries on the first day of April.
 
==Features==
 
===2014===
 
*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, [[Toontown Rewritten Team#Technical|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 includes:
 
**Turning back to your regular Toon
 
**Turning into [[Roger Dog]]
 
**Turning into a [[Big Toon]]
 
**Turning into a [[Small Toon]]
 
**Turning into a [[Flat Portrait]]
 
**Turning into a [[Flat Profile]]
 
**Becoming [[transparent]]
 
**Becoming an [[Invisible Toon]]
 
**Having a [[Big Head]]
 
**Having a [[Small Head]]
 
**Tilting backwards slightly
 
   
===2015===

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.
*The same features from 2014 such as gravity being lowered and random effects returned. The gravity was lowered at all [[playgrounds]], [[Barbecue Headquarters]], and the [[estate]].
 
*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 dark-charcoal tunnel led to [[ToonFest 2014|ToonFest]] renamed as Barbecue Headquarters. Just like ToonFest, both [[Flippy]] and [[Fluffy]] remain at the [[Flippy's Pie Stand|pie stand]]. Flippy wore a [[Chef's Chapeau]] at the time, and mentioned the continued efforts of [[Team LHAAFBBHQ]].
 
*Similar to 2014, Toons would have a random Toon species sound. The only difference being it changed whenever a new area was entered. However, Toons could still get random species sounds without entering a new area.

The update brought the addition of floating buildings, due to "Gravitational Mishaps" and "Silly Levels" being too high. The buildings affected were [[Toon Hall]], [[Toontown Library]], [[Toontown Bank]], the [[ToonFest Tower|BBQ Tower]], and the [[Toon Headquarters]] in every other playground. Toons would also be able to jump higher in playgrounds until the gravity turned on again and all the buildings would go back down.
