Boomerang is a cable television channel that launched on 1 April 2000, so that the classic cartoons airing on CN could have a new home. Initially, it was just to air the Hanna-Barbera shows, such as Top Cat, The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Yogi Bear, and some obscure titles, such as Where's Huddles? and The Roman Holidays, but as Cartoon Network slowly started to abandon airing their theatrical cartoon shorts, this channel added all the theatrical cartoons that Cartoon Network once aired. The channel has also aired Baby Looney Tunes, and recently The Looney Tunes Show. However, many other Looney Tunes-related shows, including Tiny Toon Adventures, Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain, and The Looney Tunes Show have aired on Boomerang channels overseas.

In the United States, this is the only channel where classic Looney Tunes currently rerun due to Cartoon Network officially dropping Looney Tunes reruns in 2016.

Boomerang's Streaming Service

On 7 March 2017, Boomerang announced that it will launch an app that will feature programming from the 5000+ titles from Hanna-Barbera and Warner Bros., as well as exclusive original programming. The app launched on 11 April 2017, and new episodes and contents are planned to be added weekly. Currently, the Boomerang App is only available for subscription in the United States. It is unknown when it will be available internationally.

Also, the Boomerang Streaming Service was said to include an offline download-to-go feature, but it unknown how it will work and when it will be officially added.
