Originally launched in 1992 as a four-hour weekend programming block on Creator/CartoonNetwork [[note]]The channel itself launched on April 1st, 2000; the programming block on Cartoon Network would actually last until December 26th, 2004.[[/note]], Boomerang serves as a channel to showcase Turner's extensive animation archives, including pre-1986 {{MGM}} (WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry), Creator/HannaBarbera (''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'', ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'', ''WesternAnimation/TheSnorks'', ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'', the list could go on and on), and older Creator/WarnerBros Animation material (WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes, at least until Creator/CartoonNetwork started showing it again). Of note is that, like its corporate sibling Creator/TurnerClassicMovies, Boomerang didn't run ''any'' outside advertising, only stuff for its [[Creator/CartoonNetwork sister network]] and music videos featuring Boomerang's classic programming.

Eventually, [[NetworkDecay Boomerang started adding more recent material to its schedule]], mostly from Cartoon Network's CartoonCartoons era shows, and/or syndicated shows such as ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}''. While some have cried foul, it is sort of fair to remember that [[WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory some of]] [[WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken these shows]] are nearly 20 years old, and a good majority of the CartoonCartoons were at least a decade old by the time they started running them.

Starting in 2014, Boomerang became an ad-supported network that ran outside advertising, as well as finally being acknowledged by Turner in its channel lineup. All this culminated with a complete rebrand in 2015 (though it re-launched internationally in 2014), where the network became a family-oriented animation network aimed at parents, children and girls, as opposed to its boy-slanted parent channel.
