Tooncast is a Latin American digital cable and satellite channel owned by Turner Broadcasting System Latin America subsidiary of Time Warner. Launched on December 1, 2008[1], it airs 24-hours of classic animation, both from Hanna-Barbera and Cartoon Network. It features no interruptions for advertising or programming promotions - when one show ends, the next one starts immediately.

The channels follow the Boomerang US channel line-up, which airs classic cartoons. Old Cartoon Network promos also air on the channel, such as "Cartoons That Never Made It," Cartoon Network Groovies, and Boomerang Shorties. Unlike other channels of Turner Broadcasting System Latin America, like Cartoon Network, just a few digital TV providers carry the channel. The clear exception is Brazil, where the channel is available on most cable and satellite TV distributors, such as Oi TV, Claro TV, GVT TV, Vivo TV, and Nossa TV. Since August 1, 2014, Tooncast began to be carried out on NET, the biggest cable television company from Brazil.[2][3]

Even though Tooncast remained with a single pan-regional feed with audio channels in Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese and English, on November 2012 the channel started using the Brazilian content rating system. The channel once played Powerhouse from Cartoon Network.
