Subject: When was Boomerang's peak to you?

Written By: Baltimoreian on 07/30/15 at 11:48 am

To me, their greatest years were around the mid 2000s. Still, they shown the same stuff until the rebrand happened in January of this year. All they show now is countless reruns of some of their current Cartoon Network shows, Tom and Jerry, Chowder and The Powerpuff Girls.

Pretty much the WHOLE 2000's decade was the peak of Boomerang, including its blocks like Boomeraction, Boomeroyality, and those Medling Kids. The network was originally for old school classic Hanna-Barbera cartoons, WB/MGM cartoon shorts, and very little Cartoon Cartoon reruns. I can still remember when Boomerang was a Saturday/Sunday morning block on Cartoon Network back in the Powerhouse days as well, if I reminded my young self back then to wake up that early.

I'm also aware that they still show the Looney Tunes cartoons from the 40s, 50s and 60s.

Yeah. But I wouldn't say that they were actually episodes because most of them were around before television was popular. So they would use the cartoons in movie theaters before the feature actually starts.

I never got into any of the Boomerang shows aside from Merry Melodies and Looney Tunes, as children's shows has just gotten so much more original and cutting edge by the 90s, so I'd assume Boomerang's peak period was whenever they started featuring Cartoon Cartoons just as much as the 50s/60s stuff, but not when mid-late 2000s series like My Gym Partner's a Monkey arrived.

You mean the original Cartoon Cartoons from the late 90s/early 2000s? Yeah, they shown a lot of them in the mid 2000s after they were cancelled. I think they still shown the PPG on Cartoon Network or something after they ended.

Like the others, the 2000s were the peak. It had everything to offer for a wide audience. Boomerang also had non-HB cartoons on the channel, but they were pre-90s. Even if most animation were the HB ones, they were awesome. They even had the ones that stopped being on CN after 2000.

This in bold. As someone who was an early bird, I was able to catch this every weekend before the block ended.

If I remember correctly, A Pup Named Scooby Doo aired on Boomerang and it had episodes that aired post-1990. So, they weren't anti-90s that much.

No. I didn't mean it that way. I meant that the channel catered to the shows being before 1990. However, you are right that some 80s shows had 90s episodes.

Well, they did air some pre-2004 Cartoon Network shows around the mid 2000s, like Dexter's Lab for example.

I think I recall seeing that show on there. I may have seen it on schedule as I had Cox at that time. They also had more of the pre-2000 cartoons on there around that same period as well.
