Boomerang (stylized as BOOMERANG and formerly marketed as BOOMERANG from Cartoon Network) is an American digital and satellite television channel owned and distributed by Time Warner through Turner Broadcasting. It specializes in classic and contemporary animated programming from Time Warner's archival history, including Looney Tunes, Tom and Jerry, Scooby-Doo and The Garfield Show, along with repeats of in-production series on its brother channel, Cartoon Network including Sonic Boom, Pokémon, and Teen Titans Go!.
Launched in 1992 globally and in 2000 for the United States, Boomerang originated as a programming block and spinoff of Cartoon Network. It eventually grew into its own separate channel and identity, and similarly shares the same brand and likeness as Cartoon Network. It has a fluid and improvisational schedule of on-off programming blocks and television shows, on a continuous schedule usually without advertising or commercialism.
As of February 2015, approximately 43.6 million households (37.5% of those with television) access the channel.
