    Based on the "Puppy in my Pocket" toyline, the new series "Adventures in Pocketville" will be airing on Cartoon Network's Boomerang (US). Early 2012 is the current air date.

    Could this mean more "new content" for Boomerang and even less classics than what we have now? Hopefully not. We just got Secret Saturdays on Boom (though that's not a "classic" show); it'll be sad to see a day where the classics on Boomerang are pushed to the wee hours of the night. :\

    My condolences to US Boomerang viewers. We in Europe already got this trash this year. I didn't expect it to go to US too.:eek:

    It's a boring girl cartoon made to promote the toy line, it doesn't belong on a classic cartoon network but then again most European Boomerangs lost their purpose long time ago...

    Oh no. I travel to the U.K. once a year, and not only does their Boomerang show "Puppy in my Pocket", it also shows a bunch of movies based on girl's toy lines and sitcoms. The only classic cartoons that they show are loads and loads of Tom and Jerry and Scooby-Doo, and the occasional hour of Looney Tunes. Hopefully the "Puppy in my Pocket" show gets cancelled quickly.

    Hate to say this but I kind of feared that one day Cartoon Network would use Boomerang to air the shows they license that they don't really want. You the type of shows that tend to get a quite first run airing then vanish. I feared one day some of these shows would be pawned off to boom rather then aired on Cartoon network at all. looks like it's happening.

    Then CN is getting closer to turning Boomerang into their Nicktoons alternative. Maybe Boomerang will become the more girl centric of the two networks. That'd be... interesting.

    Ugh. Besides the creatively bankrupt nature of the show's concept (Yet Another Half-Hour Toy Ad?! Plus sounds like an attempt to cash in on that new popular "My Little Pony" show on the Hub), it also means that they're shifting Boomerang to airing non-classic-cartoon material (on top of airing the live-action sitcoms around Halloween). Wonder if that means they might air commercials, as well? It'd fit trying to make Boomerang into something similar to Nicktoons (as noted above)...

    It's entirely possible that Cartoon Network had to acquire Puppy in my Pocket because it was part of a package deal with a 3rd party acquisition that they really wanted, and CN got around this by airing Pocketville on Boomerang instead of sullying CN with it, thus fulfilling their contractual obligation to run the series without having to run it on CN. It seems evident that Turner literally doesn't care what runs on Boomerang anymore. Aside from being Toon's recycle bin/junk drawer, Boom serves no purpose.

    Looks like Turner has found a way to make Boomerang profitable. This is the equivalent of an infomercial.

    I agree with this. Only because it wouldn't mean CN is putting any real financial interest in Boom at this time. Transforming Boomerang into a "girl-centric" network would cost a lot of money. I'd assume Turner would rather be spending money on Cartoon Network instead of taking a risk and launching a new network out of Boom's ashes.

    I don't think we have to worry then, the timeslot is far to early for children to commit to watching the show, and the very fact they are putting it on so early suggests they want to just air what they are obligated to air and be done with the show.

    I'm glad to see Tom and Jerry Kids and Pup Named Scooby Doo again, less excited about the return of Mr. Men and the addition of Pink Panther and Pals. Of course, Boomerang is basically a general rerun channel now, unless the airings of Teen Titans, Justice League, Ben 10, and Secret Saturdays, and other shows not even 10 years old don't convince you otherwise, so they might as well recycle what they can air and at least try to keep the schedule fresh.

    Hey, CN! Is that a puppy in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me?
