Unlike other channels, Boomerang's international threads are among the least commented, don't know why. Maybe it's because longtime viewers have drifted away.

There hasn't really been much to talk about, apart from scheduling updates, and people seem to keep putting the blame on CGI content eating up the channel, when that's clearly wrong given they actually mix it up at times.

Probably because the channel's purpose has drifted a little bit, instead of just focusing on classic shows, new shows based on classic characters and European productions. It's no longer really a retirement home for CN's output.

According to this Boomerang Pet of the Week sponsorship page, Boomerang is also a channel about "animated animals":

"Boomerang is the home of much-loved family cartoons and comedy shows featuring everyone's favourite animals and pets!"

Italy
In Italy they shortly started airing new series on the channel when it launched, starting with Duck Dodgers in early 2004, then they added Krypto the Superdog, Tom and Jerry Tales, etc, and it worked. Still when the channel launched, they premiered on the channel the WB series from the 90s which previously only aired on Rai 2.

The channel would mantain its purpose if it followed the US direction instead of leaving 70% of the schedule to European shows. The only American shows the Italian feed has now are the new Scooby Doo series, Bunnicula, Wacky Races and the Tom and Jerry Show, and they don't even air often compared to the EU shows. The T&J show airs at 6 in the morning :wolfie:

Then if you noticed all the time these EU shows get forgotten in a matter of 3 years, even though there are still more popping up to fill the whole schedule. Out of all the garbage they aired in 2015, I don't see almost any which is still on the schedule.

I hope so. If not, at least in the UK and Australia.
Or Latin America too (that there are more Classic animation fans than in Europe, but not than in the US)... if Turner/WarnerMedia approves the merger between Boomerang LatAm and Tooncast...

Meanwhile, Boom CEE aired Episode 104 of Bunnicula ("Oh, Brother") uncensored.
Since premiere that Episode had one dialogue between Chester and Harold edited: "Bunnicula helpless. Come on Bunnicula, you keep goin'!"

That morning block theme with the clocks using character faces have also been used in the UK.
Though, I've only seen one which simply had Scooby and Shaggy, annoucning "Be Cool..." followed by a Scooby Movie.

What if Viacom bought Capital Cities/ABC instead of Disney in 1996?

ABC did have a good relationship with Paramount Television after all.
When it comes to Nickelodeon, nothing is sacred. Not even a creator's wishes. Hillenburg did not want to promote fast food and this is what Nick does...

Considering leaving Tumblr because I barely posted there.

Betty White would've been 100 years old today.
One thing I've noticed is that all the cartoons that Frederick Weidmann did the music for are all CGI. He worked on Green Lantern The Animated Series, Beware The Batman, All Hail King Julien, Miles From Tomorrowland, The Dragon Prince, Madagascar A Little Wild, Big Nate, Eureka, and Firebuds.
