WB Launches Boomerang Streaming Service Hosting Over 5,000 Classic Cartoons

by on March 7, 2017
 

Good morning! While you were asleep, Warner Bros. piled every Hanna-Barbera, MGM and Looney Tunes cartoon they own into one streaming service. All the old cartoons you once had to track down obscure DVD sets to see are about to become one click or tap away. Surprise!

Boomerang, previously a brand associated with CN’s spinoff channel, will also be the name of the service launching this spring that beams over 5,000 cartoons from WB’s classic library into your TV, mobile device or Internet browser. The Boomerang service will also host original content, launching with two new series created by Warmer Bros. Animation: “Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz,” recasting the heroine of the original Oz story as a “brave and feisty princess protagonist,” and “Wacky Races” (self-explanatory). Future projects will include “new adventures” for the Looney Tunes, Scooby Doo and Tom and Jerry.

“Boomerang is a beloved brand that has always had multi-generational appeal and some of the greatest animated shows ever created,” said Christina Miller, President of Cartoon Network, Boomerang and Adult Swim. “Our on-going partnership with Warner Bros. around this new premium service continues our strategy of making sure our fans are engaged with fresh and fun content whenever and wherever they want it.”

The Boomerang TV channel, for those that get it, will remain running in its current form. Currently Boomerang TV is the Cartoon Network Echo Channel, consisting of 70% TTG and Gumball repeats. But if you want to see the content Boomerang originally had in its prime, you’ve finally got a legal means of doing so.

Boomerang will launch later this spring for the web, iOS and Android, and will later be added to Amazon, Roku and Apple TV. It will be available for $4.99 per month (with 7-day free trial) or $39.99 per year (with 30-day free trial). For more information on Boomerang, visit the official website.

    Turner, Warner Bros. to Launch Boomerang Cartoon Streaming-Subscription Service for $5 Monthly

    I'm pretty excited, and this is something I've been wanting for a long time (though of course, I would've preferred an ad-based service so I wouldn't have to pay). I liked it when Boomerang aired classic cartoons from the Turner/TimeWarner library, and this seems to feature a slew of shows based off what's shown on the site, and in this video below. Who knows, they might add the DTV Scooby movies, and make various Kids WB series, (Histeria, Pinky and the Brain, Legion of Superheroes) available as well.
    More importantly, this is great for people who's cable provider didn't carry Boomerang, so I definitely hope to sign up in the future.

    What do you guys think? Would you get this service?


  • March 7, 2017 at 11:58 am

    I'm excited about this too.
    This would be great.
    I also agree on the ad-based service as well, because I don't wanna pay for something great like this either.

    Me, upon reading that article:

    This is about as close as we're going to get to returning Boomerang to what it once was.

    Now if it could just toss in stuff from the Ruby-Spears library of shows, along with anything else from the 70's/80's (the stuff that's not got the broadcast rights tied up), then my childhood is restored.

    I'd ask them to toss in the Filmation stuff as well, but that library of shows is easily available elsewhere online.


  • March 7, 2017 at 12:40 pm

    This is pretty cool. I thought they just gave up on Boomerang but they had this in mind. Can't wait for it.


  • March 7, 2017 at 12:56 pm

    Wow, I didn't even know Boomerang had an official YouTube page or even a Twitter. Maybe Boomerang is now being taken seriously since the rebrand.

    They were launched with the announcement of the new streaming service along with Facebook and Instagram accounts. But yeah, it's nice that Boomerang is actually getting this kind of attention.


  • March 7, 2017 at 1:30 pm

    If they make it so that we can get it for free with our cable TV subscription at least, then I might consider it (e.g., Starz, and I think Epix let you have either a standalone subscription, or free viewing with a cable subscription). Otherwise, I'm going to have to say no, which is too bad really, because I really am interested in this.


  • March 7, 2017 at 1:39 pm

    I'm also tossed in the idea I'd prefer something with ads and not pay. Hope to get lucky in the future somehow.


  • March 7, 2017 at 1:47 pm

    Maybe this explains why they've been keeping a lot of shows off of their live feed. Maybe they're doing this as an incentive.


  • March 7, 2017 at 2:02 pm

    It would have been pretty cool if for the app logo they used the old logo, like with Noggin.

    I was hoping that they would bring the old logo back with the toys too! 🙁
    (unless if they are going to bring it back by surprise)


  • March 7, 2017 at 4:01 pm

    I am curious about a couple of things, such as if we're getting every Looney Tunes short or just the same handful CN and Boom show, if they'll be censored, and if older CN and/or Warner series will be a part of this.

    Until we know about these, though, count me interested.


  • March 7, 2017 at 4:05 pm

    Does this mean the channel will air classic cartoons again?

    March 7, 2017 at 9:17 pm

    I’ll definitely keep an eye out for their regular offerings and make a call on whether to get a subscription or not when they officially launch.

    I don't imagine the channel will be much different than it is now, though there will be classics on the streaming service.

    I hope so. I'd also like to have the CN Groovies and Shorties brought back. I also hope they'll show Swat Kats, Road Rovers, 2 Stupid Dogs,
    Freakazoid, Taz Mania, and Tom and Jerry Kids.


  • March 7, 2017 at 5:31 pm

    I wonder if Wacky Races and Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz will be exclusive to the streaming service or if they'll air on regular Boomerang as well? I imagine having new exclusive content would be a big selling point along with the classic stuff.

    Given how CN and Boomerang treat WBA's shows, I wonder if we might see them stick to the streaming services, maybe if Boomerang is successful, they'll launch a DC streaming service with the back catalogue plus new content.


  • March 7, 2017 at 6:00 pm

    So wait. Boomerang is both the name of the channel and the new streaming service that's set to launch in the future? And the new service just has the "boomerang" name in the URL while the channel now has "boomeranggo" instead? This is so confusing.

    I see one of the "classic" cartoons being offered in the new Boomerang service is My Gym Partner's A Monkey, so take of that what you will. At least the high quality looping animation clips on the top of the web page look nice. Kinda surprised they didn't save this announcement for the big Turner upfront this spring. They'll probably make a big fuss about it then regardless.

    I know the press release said the main channel will continue to stay on the air, but I wouldn't be surprised whatsoever if it ends up being gradually phased out not this year, but two or three years down the line. With a streaming service as ambitious as this, there just doesn't seem to be any point in keeping it around anymore.

    Showtime's OTT streaming service is also called Showtime and it doesn't seem to cause any issues.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Boomerang is rebranded as either CN Too or something along those line in a few years.


  • March 7, 2017 at 6:12 pm

    A lot of households still don't have access to Boomerang the TV channel, but many more can still pay for the Boomerang streaming service. It's probably reasonable Turner is launching this new Boomerang service in hopes to gain revenue from subscribers.

    Anyway, I'm looking forward to the launch soon.


  • March 7, 2017 at 7:06 pm

    I applaud Turner for taking this action, I think it is just better to offer this given the lack of availability the normal channel has.


  • March 7, 2017 at 7:48 pm

    I'm intrigued. I wonder how much older CN stuff they will have?


  • March 8, 2017 at 8:17 am

    While I'm more into new material and not nostalgic in any way for my crappy.childhood, I know we can all agree on more than this much: this is truly a damn good move on WB and Turner's part(s), but only if people pay into it, of course. $5 ain't much for what Boomerang should be like, which is what this is (I really hope to God, anyway.) clearly & honesty setting out to do here. So here's hoping to God, from me, that this succeeds, unlike the crap CN / Boomerang are doing with their awful s scheduling and lack of variety!

  • March 8, 2017 at 9:49 am

    It's good they're doing this, it looks nice, it has potential, but it's a shame it took this long and the catalogue will be at least initially limited. Considering they want it to remain kids friendly and mainstream certain old/violent/obscure shows are likely off the list and I'm not expecting them to put up everything they actually own. There's the Warner Archive and these two service will somehow need to work together. But we'll see. Maybe they'll surprise us, listen and adjust based on demand. I don't expect this service to expand beyond US, Canada, Australia and UK and I'm not sure about the price which could be slightly lower. Plus there's the question of what this means for the channel and what will it show. Not to sound negative though, I hope that at least this concept for Boomerang works out and that Turner has realized finally they need to care about their properties and put some effort instead of camping in the corner and putting everything on autopilot.

    I don't mind that really. I feel it'd be a lil overwhelming out of the floodgates to dish out if they had thought to do this most everything they have. Reason I like it is because overtime we know more is coming and have more room for excitement rather than "well, it's all here and watched, now what?" They can also not show every episode of each show and gradually progress in adding more. Don't know if that's what they'll do but I wouldn't mind them doing that as long as excitement is there.

    I know a lot of kids will sneak a view that they can but for those who really do need to get their parents'/guardian's permission, I don't see why they couldn't throw in a few shows like some of the action ones – like for example TT and original B10. Depending on how many classics there are that haven't aged well with most adults even today, I for one wouldn't mind they "try" a trial run of a small amount of episodes then determine after a period of time if the watch counter justifies continuing it or dropping it. Possibly also just swapping out episodes for more episodes until it ends then decide if it returns later or not.

    I tend to repeat sometimes but what I [hope to] see here is using the channel to still have some premiers as a gesture for those who don't want the app, wish to have it or simply can't. I understand the talk of linear channels fading but it's still fun — and snail-like nostalgic-progressing to see a show you want to see on TV and the wait to get there. As long as they have the channel I'd hope they have a decent amount of premiers and at least shuffle the lineup numerous times to keep up interests there. Never was too fond of that in the past cause I liked to know when the show I enjoyed was on, but nowadays I welcome change after change (at least monthly like the tv channel has been doing lately) again to keep interests up. They obviously though without question need to up the ante with shows they haven't aired in long as making use of what they currently have – in example, the WB library. We see S&TM back yet again and I still welcome it, but it'd be nice to see one other show from the WB vault like Tiny Toons for example. As long as they intend to keep the channel, they really ought to do similar to what I've described or what's the point? At least they're still doing premiers which is a good purpose to still keep it around.

    You bring up an interesting point – will this new Boomerang service feature the Warner Bros. action cartoons? Everything from "Superfriends" to "Batman: the Animated Series" to "Justice League Unlimited"? Be nice to have B:TAS available on a streaming service for once…


  • March 8, 2017 at 10:47 am

    @wonderfly My concern as well. WB/DC action from past to present? Eventually. Maybe. But that is a big "if". Classic action shows like Centurions, Swat Kats, Silverhawks, Thundercats, Tigersharks, Sky Commanders, Real Adventures of Jonny Quest, Galtar, Chuck Norris, Gobots, Herculoids, Fantastic Four, G-Force, Shazzan, Dark Water, Space Ghost, Birdman, Galaxy Trio, Dino Boy and the rest? I very much doubt it and those were titles I had in mind @Dan’s Revenge – along with the many adventure/comedy shows from the archive not many people know or care about and shows that are just "okay". of course they will release new content in waves over time, but I feel that for some shows this service is not the place out of principle from Day 1.

    I'm…not sure I understand what you mean. What I meant was that I might be interested if they offer both a standalone subscription option, along with a "log in with cable provider" option.


  • March 8, 2017 at 3:48 pm

    The fact that the promo video had The Monchichis of all shows listed as some of the content available on the platform, I think it's safe to assume that all our favorite shows from the HB library will eventually be on the platform.

    Yeah but it will be nothing like the REAL Boomerang without the toys, you can't forget about them! I hope they change their mind about the block or use the Boomerang by surprise.


  • March 8, 2017 at 4:43 pm

    I'd prefer it to be add supported, too, so I won't see an increase in my cable bill (I have cable/internet/phone on the same bill). Of course, I'd absolutely love to see those H-B forgotten shows (i.e. These Are The Days) that didn't see the light of day in my area the first time around.

    Um, I think it will just be shows from Turner's library*. They didn't say anything about the Warner Bros. TV library. I imagine that would require a separate agreement (even "The Dukes", which is made by Hanna-Barbera, or Ruby-Spears' Police Academy series but which are both controlled by Warner Bros. directly, along with the post-1974 Rankin/Bass catalog). The best anyone can hope for would be the post-1948 animated shorts and/or anything that aired on the Cartoon Network originally.

    *Incidentally, IMO, this could also include both Gilligan's Island shows (The New Adventures of Gilligan; Gilligan's Planet), plus the New Tom and Jerry Show from the early 1980s, all of which were made by Filmation, but based on shows from Turner's library (and Tom and Jerry, obviously).

    Well, that could definitely work since Warner Bros. is a key player in the new venture. Anything could happen.

    That's what I expect, but let's be real here- this will be used a lot more by people like us than by families.


  • March 10, 2017 at 9:11 am

    With all due respect, I'm pretty sure this service will be used just as much by families.

    Look, I don't think you're being fair, here. If they were to show everything totally uncensored (e.g., the various WWII shorts with racial stereotypes and even certain slurs directed at certain people) like the older fans would want, I don't think this service would last very long. I'm going to say it; that's like asking Nintendo (themselves) to start making M-rated games (let alone ones from specific franchises…) just to appease the "hardcore"* video game fans in the short term. "Art should not be censored" as they say, but at the same time, we can't ignore the feelings of those who wouldn't like to see certain things in any animated shows/movies, especially racial stereotypes, but that's actually another issue entirely, and I don't want to derail this thread, so I'll leave it at that. The point is, everybody is going to be using this service, not just those people who (again with all due respect) want to feel "grown up" by watching animation that appeals more to them at everyone else's expense.

    (sigh) Really, everyone, just look at my signature. It explains exactly how I feel about it…

    *Incidentally, IMO, this could also include both Gilligan's Island shows (The New Adventures of Gilligan; Gilligan's Planet), plus the New Tom and Jerry Show from the early 1980s, all of which were made by Filmation, but based on shows from Turner's library (and Tom and Jerry, obviously).

    It's a joint venture with Warner Bros so I assume we'll see shows from the WB library as well.

    WasFur

    Dorothy is owned by WB….. unless it's only the new WB stuff that will be there

    Wacky Races will be produced by Warner Bros Animation and I assume Dorothy is WBA in association with Turner as Turner is the copyright holder of the 1939 Wizard of Oz film which this is new series is based on.

    I am looking forward to Boomerang New Streaming Service, if New Looney Tunes(Wabbit)(for Example) aired on Cartoon Network it would probably get low rating from a bad slot time or no promotion because shows on Cartoon Network are not doing so well in rating.But at less New Episodes of New Looney Tunes,Be Cool,Scooby Doo,Tom and Jerry Bunnicula, Wacky Races and Dorothy will be on Boomerang SVOD where people can watch there episodes anytime, any-where. It also great that the Boomerang SVOD will have some of my favorite classic cartoon.:bugs1::daffy::coyote::sylvester:lepew::marvin::tomcat::jerry::droopy:

    With all due respect, I'm pretty sure this service will be used just as much by families.

    Look, I don't think you're being fair, here. If they were to show everything totally uncensored (e.g., the various WWII shorts with racial stereotypes and even certain slurs directed at certain people) like the older fans would want, I don't think this service would last very long. I'm going to say it; that's like asking Nintendo (themselves) to start making M-rated games (let alone ones from specific franchises…) just to appease the "hardcore"* video game fans in the short term. "Art should not be censored" as they say, but at the same time, we can't ignore the feelings of those who wouldn't like to see certain things in any animated shows/movies, especially racial stereotypes, but that's actually another issue entirely, and I don't want to derail this thread, so I'll leave it at that. The point is, everybody is going to be using this service, not just those people who (again with all due respect) want to feel "grown up" by watching animation that appeals more to them at everyone else's expense.

    (sigh) Really, everyone, just look at my signature. It explains exactly how I feel about it…

    *I don't think this word means what some people think it means (or should mean).

    I'm still not sure if the app will be a big deal to families, primarily since I don't see too many kids being interested. If some of these series were still being aired on regular hours, that would be different, but kids will probably want to stick to the shows they're watching and being fed, and their parents won't care what they watch, as long as it's not too mature.

    I will say that I'm not against racial stereotypes being censored out from older cartoons, for obvious reasons. I'm more against some of the other edits that happened to Warner and MGM cartoons, like some bits of cartoon violence and a couple of lines that shouldn't be that big of a deal ("Luckily for him, it IS a one horse town"). Although I feel that at this point, I'll just take what I can get.


  • March 12, 2017 at 6:28 am

    I really don't think it matters when a show was made. Many viewers of many ages like many different kids of shows. Yes, there are some superficial viewers out there who wouldn't touch a show from, say, the 1960s with a ten foot pole, but that applies to viewers of any age. In other words, there are also some older viewers (even those who "were there" when some of the shows were originally aired) who would also think that way. (sigh) I just think you're being too general. I've seen many shows that were before my time, but I still like to see them regardless. In any case, I'm still interested in this new thing. Again though, I hope that at some point, if not right away, that they also let viewers log in with their cable/satellite/IPTV (e.g., U-Verse, Vantage TV) providers.

    While I'm still not keen paying a fee, when it comes down to it, $40 a year … doesn't seem all that bad really. Still wish there'd be 'some' free things.

    Would this service consider licensing old cartoons owned by other companies that are rarely seen (like the CBS-owned shows The Oddball Couple and Itsy Bitsy Spider?}


  • March 17, 2017 at 1:50 am

    It's possible, but unlikely, IMO.


  • March 17, 2017 at 4:33 pm

    Well Hulu, which is co-owned by NBC, ABC, Fox and Turner has lots of content licensed from outside media companies. So I wouldn't put it past Boomerang to do the same (pre-October 1950 Paramount cartoons other than Popeye or Superman anyone?).


  • March 17, 2017 at 9:03 pm

    Is Boomerang stream going to offer one-shot MGM cartoons? They need to get out of the vault. They have been sitting in the vault since 2010.


  • March 19, 2017 at 4:57 pm

    You mean the various Happy Harmonies, and "MGM Cartoons" (i.e., shorts that are billed as "An MGM cartoon")? It's probably likely, IMO.


  • March 19, 2017 at 5:16 pm

    The Boomerang website does have Barney Bear listed, and I'm pretty sure Turner still has the rights to the MGM library, so I have little doubt that they'll be on the service.

    Unlikely at this time since WBA/Turner are showing first-party library programming and probably a few third-party titles like Peanuts, which the network holds exclusive rights to on a global basis.

    They'd rather focus on the big names rather than obscure shows from outside companies, and that's understandable from a commercial perspective.

    I would given that Warner Bros and Turner are running the service and using their own massive library for programming. In short, it's the same strategy Turner had when they launched the original Cartoon Network, except they have WBA muscle behind them providing original programming.

    Besides, the pre-1950s non-Popeye/Superman/Harveytoons Paramount stuff is under lock and key at Viacom (lots of routes caused the library to revert back to them). You want to see 'em? Your best bet is Nick, so lots of luck.

    Well now we need to stand together. Pass this on and let our voice be heard! Let our presence be know and tell Boomerang to do their streaming service PROPERLY!

    On a related note, would anyone see a need to continue on or create talkback threads for shows (only with new-to-US episodes) such as Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! or just forgo them since they'll be part of an app? – Especially when a lot of new episodes likely get released at the same time.

    I have 0 interest in starting those kinds of threads, but if I'm able to watch these in the future and wanted to chip in my responses I would.


  • March 23, 2017 at 4:56 pm

    Okay, so it's the same prints as before (although personally, I do hope they can start showing the non-PAL versions of certain post-1948 shorts), but personally, I don't think it's a reason to swear off this service. That said, I do hope we can see the original non-AAP/blue ribbon versions someday. I still plan to check this channel out. After all, they have more than just the golden age stuff (Hanna-Barbera, anyone?). Besides, as I said before, if they were to show everything totally uncensored, this service wouldn't last long, plus it wouldn't be fair to anybody in the long run.

    What Shows Should the Boomerang Streaming Service acquire?

    Absolutely none. There are enough in-house series, shorts and films to keep the platform going forever, because they have both a huge back catalogue and new content being produced all the time (via Cartoon Network).


  • March 26, 2017 at 6:49 am

    Well, I don't think we should close our minds to any possibilities. In any case, this online platform is most likely to focus mainly on the Turner catalog (the WBTV catalog [post-1948 classic shorts, the B&W classic shorts, the Superfriends franchise, the "silver age" shows, etc.] would require specific licensing agreements). IMO, however, they might want to consider the occasional non Turner series every once in a while…


  • March 26, 2017 at 8:42 am

    I think they should pick up old shows CN used to air like Underdog or the original George of the Jungle. Maybe even The Mask, G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, Speed Racer, and The Pink Panther.

    Maybe even acquire some animated movies. I miss Cartoon Theatre and there's a whole bunch of animated films they can pick up that haven't aired on CN in years, like Charlotte's Web, Twice Upon a Time, The Phantom Tollbooth, The Hobbit, just to name a few. Maybe even acquire family friendly animated films from around the world.

    I hope they'll have all the Scooby-Doo and Tom and Jerry DTV movies. People apparently love those, so it'll be great if they're given a perms any home on the platform.

  • March 26, 2017 at 4:32 pm

    Right now? Nothing. They have plenty of content as is, and Warner Bros. already spent millions of dollars buying DramaFever, the service that's being used to power the Boomerang app.

    I'm pretty sure they'd wanna hang back on acquisitions for a bit; they've spent so much money on it already. Maybe if they start making their costs back through subscriptions, then they'll start looking into acquired content.

    Is the full season of New Looney Tunes on there and and how may episodes does Bunnicula have


  • April 2, 2017 at 11:21 am

    Just so we're clear, "New Looney Tunes" is actually "Wabbit", am I 'wight'…er, right?

    Yeah. It was Wabbit, but it had a name change to New Looney Tunes.

    Any idea when this app will be available for the iPhone?

    I can't tell how many episodes of New Looney Tunes are on there. Every time I go to the page, it gives me the paywall.

    Bunnicula currently has only the first 10 episodes.


  • April 2, 2017 at 12:42 pm

    I think it's pretty stupid to release it (sort of) only on the Google Play store. Now that I know it's on there I'd like to test it out as well, but iOS users can't do that.


  • April 2, 2017 at 6:30 pm

    For fellow Android users that have subscribed to the beta of the Boomerang app did you go with the monthly charge or the yearly one? I went with the yearly one myself since it was cheaper in the long run. Sure you have to pay more upfront but you end up paying less in the long run given the monthly option would be around $60.00 a year instead of $40.00 I believe.

    When you signed up, did they give you 10 episodes of new Looney Tunes?

    Yes, seems most of the shows only have around 10 episodes or so up. I am hoping once the App officially launches shows like Bunnicula, New Looney Tunes, & Be Cool Scooby Doo! will be put up in their entirety along with the rest of the series on the service. Also hoping we can get some Snagglepuss and Hong Kong Phooey eps put up on the app eventually.

    Actually, it's not a bad idea. They included a little button to add feedback (it's the button labeled "Grownups" in the corner), so they can make improvements before the official release.

    I added a comment myself. I hope they'll implement it.

    Well we Android users deserve our temporary exclusives too yea know. You Apple users did get Mario Run three months before we did so maybe this is how the universe balances things out.

    For a more serious answer though I couldn't say. Maybe whomever developed the app was more familiar with Android than IOS. We may never know.

    I honestly don't know, but if I were to guess, I think it's because Apple has stricter standards when it comes to apps and software. I don't think they'd let a beta app onto iTunes.

    EDIT: After a quick search, that seems about right.

    Demos, betas, and trial versions of your app don’t belong on the App Store – use TestFlight instead.

    EDIT #2: Here's the link for TestFlight on the App Store. Maybe you can find it through there?

    Google Play is the Android app store, so it's for Android devices. It won't work on Windows, Apple, or Linux.

    I was hoping that this service would launch on April 1st just like the channel did, but I had no idea that the app was still in its early stages until recently.

    It's an "early access" app, something iOS doesn't support (I'm guessing). The page also notes that because it's in development, that "it may be unstable" as another user pointed out.

    Me? I'm going to go ahead and wait for the full release. As for Wabbit/New Looney Tunes giving the paywall, I'm assuming that's a bug/error/glitch that will (hopefully) be looked into during the (otherwise) closed beta test. After all, it's supposed to be a 7 day free trial (for paying monthly) and a 30 day free trial for paying yearly. A free trial with only select shows available is pretty stupid in my opinion. That only makes it a glorified ad for the whole thing, and implies that they really want to you to pay from the start.

    The new Boomerang app has been promoted very well lately. Every so often, I see the official Cartoon Network Twitter and Facebook account either retweet or share posts from the Boomerang page featuring clips from their classic cartoon collection, which is a great way to get the word out as well as putting them in the spotlight for the younger generation who may not be as familiar with them as we are.

    It's nice to see, really. Boomerang hasn't received this much attention in a long, long time.

    They took my suggestion! Sweet! Now I can browse episodes of every show without having to look at the paywall screen.

    Also, they're starting to add more episodes of each show now. Three more Bunnicula episodes have been added since the last time I checked.

    EDIT: Also, a new (appropriately timed) movie addition–Yogi the Easter Bear.

    Actually, I was talking about the general manager (the day-to-day operations) part of the job not the president part.

    Only if Warner Bros. and Turner did a joint venture years ago to form a distribution company, we wouldn't have a problem with a lack of home video releases.

  • April 22, 2017 at 12:38 am

    (sigh)

    Okay, everybody, look. I was not expecting this. At this time, everything, and I mean everything has been reduced to it's individual stories. As a result, any and all shows that originally used the two or three shorts format are not available in their original half-hour forms. In other words, this site/app has one major flaw: it currently does not distinguish between shows (e.g.; Scooby-Doo, Wacky Races, etc.) and individual short collections (e.g., Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, etc.), or individual episodes or shorts/segments. Want to watch Wacky Races? You can only choose between its individual 11-12 minute stories.

    I'm sorry, everyone, but this is not acceptable.

    However, I won't drop this site/app just yet. It is my hope that it will improve, including fixing this–again–major flaw. If anything, we should be given the choice between just seeing the segments or watching the original half-hour versions (for those it applies to; Richie Rich, for example). Also, half-hour shows, and collections of shorts really need to be in separate categories. More variety? These things need to be done first before they add any other new shows. On a personal note, I would have looked further into it, but I didn't feel I needed to. I thought this was already understood. That said, I don't think they were trying to deceive anyone, exactly, but at the same time, they weren't telling the whole truth, either (i.e., various commercials, etc. referenced shows that originally had half-hour showings either way)…

    Why does it matter? Why is your way of watching shows better than their way of listing shows?!

    You are one of the very few people who can watch these shows legally, and you complain about how they are cut :sweat:

    I have to disagree with you. My "way" of watching them? My own personal preferences are irrelevant here. What I was saying before is that, if anything, we should be given the option of whether we want to watch them in their original half-hour versions (they way they're actually supposed to be shown; just saying), or just the individual segments (for those who might want their classic animation in smaller chunks). No offense, but this time around, the "be lucky that you have this option" explanation doesn't apply here. I know it just launched, but it is my hope that later on down the road, this site/app can ultimately live up to its potential. Otherwise, this (current) lack of distinction between half-hour shows and individual episodes/stories/segments/etc. will likely (at least in my opinion) hurt this site/app in the long run, since it essentially spits in the face of both the history of these productions, and the legacies of the companies who made them (even if it may or may not necessarily mean to). That said, in the case of "Yogi Bear" and "Huckleberry Hound", I could probably take those individual segments, MAYBE even Magilla Gorilla (though it would be nice if we did have the actual Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, and Magilla Gorilla Shows), but not something like Wacky Races or Richie Rich.

    I'm sure the creators of these cartoons, if still alive, are glad their creations are available again. And those businessmen who own/owned those companies couldn't care less.

    The creators didn't choose to make half hour shows. The networks did. The creators often can't even choose the order of episodes, let alone the way the segments are paired.

    This has already been discussed with Adventure Time. At first the episodes were broadcast as half hours and now as 11 minute episodes. The creators don't mind.

    Besides, Turner owns these shows. They can only spit in their own faces xD


  • April 22, 2017 at 8:42 am

    The creators didn't choose to make half hour shows. The networks did.

    Except when the creators did in fact choose to make half-hour shows; two/three shorts formats or not.

    Either way, that's just an excuse for not wanting this site/app to live up to its potential. I still say we need to be given the choice.

    I'm sure the creators of these shows if still alive…

    Another excuse either way.

    …are glad their creations are available again.

    Still another excuse.

    Turner owns these shows.

    That still doesn't mean we can't ask for improvements to this site/app, including giving us the choice.

    Look, anyway you slice it, my point, and my feelings about it still stand: we should be given the choice. Yes, we should be thankful for what we have, but in this case, I feel we can (and should) ask for a choice on how we can watch these shows.

    Because maybe people want to watch these old cartoons again? Because Turner can make money off of this service. Show Biz Bugs is uncensored, you get to see Daffy blow himself up. A lot of these cartoons have racial stereotypes and with what the world is like today, I can see why they'd be censored. I'm not offended and I don't take any of it to heart, but a lot of people sadly do. They'll never understand.

    Wow, they file they used for BCSD is messed up. I watched the first episode, the sound effects during the opening credits are loud, the episode is missing most of the background music, the chase scene is missing vocals, and some sound effects are missing. I've only watched the first episode, so I don't know if it's messed up on the other episodes either.

  • May 15, 2017 at 1:36 pm

    Well, for three reasons:

    • Turner/WB have pretended for the past 5+ years that these shows don't exist by not putting them on Boomerang let alone CN and shoving them to WAC MOD instead where they can be found mostly by those who already know them and forgotten. Plus they haven't been aired by different channels either, nor they are easily available in stores or VOD online – for the most part.
    • It seems they are trying to create a kids-family-friendly/mostly-comedy environment with the new Boomerang and especially CN. I don't see how the majority of the shows listed above meets this criteria unless being censored. Doubt they want to be associated with them.
    • Why put them on Boomerang when they can be perfectly fine on WAC MOD unless they want to sabotage that project?

  • May 15, 2017 at 3:06 pm

    Turner airs some of these shows on Tooncast in Latin America. So they pretend these shows don't exist only in the US, apparently.

    I guess you really don't know those shows well. Teen Titans in comparison with those shows is tame. And so is to a degree the original Jonny Quest which they will probably add as well. There is reason to censor those shows in this day and age for today's kids. These days everything is about flashy colors, toilet humor and correctness. How old said shows are is irrelevant or maybe the precise reason they don't fit. This isn't DVD retail nor MOD. This is a kids and family friendly comedy focused on demand service where the aforementioned shows full of action, gore, violence, language and darkness don't fit. Completely different themes and drive. What were kids shows for us in the 80s/90s are now adult content by today's standards. Action cartoons have become non-existent. Just look around. The shows mentioned aren't timeless like the rest of the positive bunch. They're pretty much product of their time and have little purpose today without merchandise. They are true retro unlike Tom and Jerry or Looney Tunes which will live forever regardless or CN originals that are also for everyone.

    And your description of "action, gore, violence, language and darkness"? ….a lot of the 80's/early 90's shows you listed were designed to sell toys. I'm not seeing the issue, other then they're not Hanna-Barbera comedy.

    the rumor mill(at least from what I've heard on other darker parts of the internet) is that Boomerang the channel is likely going to end up becoming CN's equivalent to Disney XD or Nicktoons, possibly with a rebranding(well either that or Adult Swim taking over the channel slot Boomerang currently occupies)

    I think it's already CN's equivalent to Nicktoons, seeing how little they put into it. For Boomerang to become CN's equivalent to Disney XD, they'd have to put more into it. They had that chance when the channel rebranded in 2015 and it didn't happen. At this point, I don't see all that much happening with the channel.
