Boomerang is a cable network owned by Time Warner, operating as a sister station to Cartoon Network.


Boomerang is well-known for airing many cartoons that came from the 1900s such as The Flintstones and The Jetsons, as well as older episodes of currently-running series, Pokémon among them. A full list is on Wikipedia.


Boomerang was made shortly after the introduction of Cartoon Network in 1992. However, it was only a block for the network, and didn't become a channel until 2000. During its time as a block, it lasted for only a couple of hours at a time.

With Pokémon

Boomerang first started airing episodes of the popular Pokémon series when it first aired the original series in 2010, and after that in March of 2010. Currently, as of June 2012, the channel airs episodes of Pokémon: Advanced. Episodes are currently airing at 6:00 PM & 6:30 PM ET/PT on weekdays[1].


  • Boomerang's name comes from the boomerang, a tool that is known for always coming back when thrown.
    • This is because Boomerang shows many older cartoons that are coming back to air, much like when boomerangs come back when thrown.
  • Boomerang airs Holiday Hi-Jynx, an anime episode that had been banned.
