After four months of private beta, the site launched publicly in March 2007 during the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas, and began distributing member-created animation videos to Internet audiences worldwide. Three weeks after its launch, MyToons had received more than 1.5 million unique visitors.
In June 2008, MyToons.com became the first global animation community to offer users the ability to upload and view animations in High Definition. At this time, the HD animation contest Get With the Times! was also launched.
In January 2009, MyToons laid off a large part of its staff.
In April 2009, MyToons closed down completely after venture capital funding ceased.
