Boomerang is a television channel featuring classic cartoons, notably from the Hanna-Barbera and Warner Bros. Animation library, and selected cartoons from the Cartoon Network Studios library. This is a version of the channel that is broadcast in Europe, portions of Africa, and of the Middle East. All Boomerang programming is available in English. From October 2011, Boomerang is also available with Greek soundtracks. Some Boomerang programmes have Arabic language soundtracks for viewers in the Middle East.

History[edit]

The channel was launched in June 2005 as a TV channel in Eastern Europe (in English), Poland (in Polish) and Hungary (only selected shows in Hungarian) with a lot of former Cartoon Network and Hanna-Barbera shows.

From October 2010, the channel also started to broadcast selected shows in Romanian.

From 12 October 2011, the Central and Eastern Europe feed was separated from Europe, Middle East and Africa having its own schedule (see Boomerang (CEE)). From then, Cartoonito, a pre-school block, was added to both feeds.
