Trivia / Boomerang

  • While some have complained about how Boomerang is normally only available on relatively-high-tier satellite and digital cable packages, it should be noted that Boomerang was funded solely by subscription costs; this is why it aired no outside advertising for a good while. This happened until November 2013, when Boomerang started airing limited commercial advertising between breaks as part of Cartoon Network's plan to rebrand Boomerang into a family animation channel.
  • Notably, Boomerang used Cartoon Network's classic "checkerboard" logo as part of its own logo until the rebranding; this was perhaps to keep the "classic" feel that Boomerang is meant to evoke alive.
  • Sometimes, a new Cartoon Network show (usually an import) would air on Boomerang for a few months. This is because some cable systems carry Boomerang, but not Cartoon Network (due to the presence of [adult swim]) and CN would run those shows on Boomerang to give it more exposure.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: For some reason, it's very hard to find high-quality English-language uploads of Boomerang commercial breaks on YouTube, with most of those that have been uploaded being filmed by people with their webcams or uploads from Boomerang's Latin American feed in the early 2000's. It's somewhat telling that Boomerang's official YouTube channel is limited to Spanish dubs when uploading older bumpers for certain shows.
