Toasted TV is a successor to the Australian children's television program Cheez TV, and airs on Eleven from 27 February 2012 on Weekdays from 6am to 9am, Saturdays from 6am to 7am and Sundays from 6am to 10am. As of 11 November 2013, Toasted TV has been extended from 9am to 9:30am on Monday-Friday. Toasted TV was formerly aired on Network Ten on 22 August 2005 until 25 February 2012. The show is hosted by Ollie and Jono Symons. The show remains less popular than the original Cheez TV with complaints of lowering the age demographics with cartoons that only appeal to children under 10 years of age (unlike its predecessor which had a wider range of cartoons that appealed to all ages up to 14 years) as well as the controversial replacement of the 8am cartoon segment with less popular educational shows like Totally Wild and Scope.

The show targets an audience of 7- to 14-year-olds. The activities of the hosts are interspersed with cartoons and anime, such as Pokémon, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Beyblade Metal Fusion, SpongeBob SquarePants, Yu-Gi-Oh! GX (Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters GX), Penguins of Madagascar and Bakugan.

Premiering on 22 August 2005, it succeeded Cheez TV, and is produced in conjunction with Village Roadshow Theme Parks, the owner of Warner Bros. Movie World, Sea World and Wet'n'Wild Water World. On 13 July 2011 to show changed to filming at Dreamworld. As of 2 July 2012, the show is shot in a studio.

Regular segments on Toasted TV include:

  • Letter of the Week, where letters are read and prizes are given out for them. This segment used to show on Saturdays and now will show on a weekday.
  • Facebook Watch, a segment where Ollie and Jono read out a topic they have posted on Facebook and the viewers replies or the posts on their Facebook feed.

Former segments on Toasted TV include:

This segment was showing on Saturdays.
  • Brain Squeeze, the world's dodgiest quiz show, where contestants played for Wahu items. Used to be hosted by Pip and Dan.
  • Bread Board, where viewers send in a question about a situation and the board consisting of at least four kids try to solve the problem.
