• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

It's all coming back to you.

Originally launched in 1992 as a four-hour weekend programming block on Cartoon Network [1], Boomerang serves as a channel to showcase Turner's extensive animation archives, including pre-1986 MGM (Tom and Jerry), Hanna-Barbera (The Smurfs, Scooby Doo, The Snorks, The Flintstones, the list could go on and on), and older Warner Bros. Animaion material (Looney Tunes, at least until Cartoon Network started showing it again). Of note is that, like its corporate sibling Turner Classic Movies, Boomerang doesn't run any outside advertising, only stuff for its sister network and music videos featuring Boomerang's classic programming.

Lately, Boomerang has been adding more relatively-recent material to its schedule, mostly from Cartoon Network's old Cartoon Cartoons library of shows, and the odd episode or two of Pokémon. While some have cried foul, it is sort of fair to remember that some of these shows are nearly twenty years old, and a good majority of the Cartoon Cartoons are at least a decade old at the time of this edit. Whether this trend will continue remains to be seen, though it's probably inevitable given that they can only rerun their older stuff so many times before it gets sort of stale.

  1. The channel itself launched on April 1st, 2000; the programming block on Cartoon Network would actually last until December 26th, 2004.
