Whenever we feature a private torrent tracker, direct download link forum or any other site on this blog, we usually make it a practice to revisit the site later on to check on its progress. If the site has really done well and reached important milestones, we even go ahead an post an updated article highlighting recent changes. This is one such occasion when a tracker has done well and deserves a second mention. Neptoons, a classic cartoon tracker we featured a couple of months ago, has managed to expand its torrent index beyond 100 complete series packs (this is without taking into account individual episodes and full season packs indexed on site – we’re talking about complete series where all seasons/episodes of a show are packed into a singe torrent). In addition, Neptoons has forayed into the interesting niche of comics torrents – the site now has around 50 different comics indexed. Most of these are again complete series packs where all issues in a particular comic are bundled together.

Neptoons

Neptoons (formerly Fox Kids) is not one of those huge torrent sites where you can find 50k+ users and an equal number of torrents. It’s a small community targeted at a specific set of users, namely fans of classic cartoons, comics and hard to find animated series. It’s torrent index which currently has 350+ active torrents might look small at first – but that’s until you realize almost every torrent on this site is either a season pack or a complete series. The amount of content integrated into these packs is without a doubt equivalent to 10000+ torrents on any other torrent site. And that fact that most of the stuff indexed on Neptoons isn’t available anywhere else adds even more value to this tracker.

As mentioned earlier, Neptoons’s main attraction is classic cartoons. From cartoons made in the 1930s to the early 2000s, you can find a great selection of animated content on this tracker. This includes popular shows aired on networks such as Boomerang, Nick, Cartoon Network, etc as well as those that ran on movie theaters back in the 1940s and 1950s. In addition to toons, a lot of comics have also been uploaded to the tracker recently. In true Neptoons style, comics too seem to be uploaded in packs – usually all the issues in a particular comic are grouped into a single torrent. The site indexes both scene and non scene releases. However, exclusive uploads by the tracker’s internal encoders far outnumber scene releases which is pretty impressive (note that Neptoons internal releases are not available on any other torrent site). Some of the torrents are shown in the screenshot below:

    I signed up for this tracker a while back when filenetworks pointed it out. It's a fantastic tracker, great interface too.

    The tic tac toe thing is just something you need to do, it doesn't matter if you win or not.

    @Deb,
    Maybe try again later? It could be a bad time zone for tracker staff.

    Nice article, though I must mention as a member of several toon sites, including this one, that not all of the neptoons internal encodes are truly exclusive - a lot are, but encoders there also upload (or allow their encodes to be uploaded) on cartoonchaos.org and vice versa. Basically if you have these two trackers you have a lot of the good cartoon content out there! Also neptoons encoders fserve on their IRC :)
