Boomerang literally is dead to me now. The Christmas lineup is garbage compared to past years (the only classics are Horton Hears A Who, which I have no idea why that is on, Flintstones Christmas Carol, and making its Boomerang debut, the 1966 Grinch special).

Last year on Christmas, Boomerang played a marathon of classic Hanna-Barbera cartoons they hardly play anymore. (That's pretty much what I watched on Christmas morning.  :biggrin: ) As for this year, I was expecting when they would air holiday material. They used to start airing it at the beginning of December.

Here's what will be in Boomerang's holiday line-up according to Nick and More: http://www.nickandmore.com/2014/12/09/boomerang-celebrates-christmas-with-mostly-contemporary-line-up/
Happy Holidays, everyone!

And there's Christmas Comes to Pacland. There's few hours I'll be DVR'ing for old times sake. Hope to see the Christmas Party branding.

I fear the worldwide channel angle of the Boomerang revamp will be rubbish here in the US as US Kids TV execs always blackball us out of good imports like Geronimo Stilton, Sooty, The Dreamstone, The Magic Roundabout, Basil Brush and The Wombles and instead give us trash like Puppy In My Pocket, Johnny Test and Almost Naked Animals

Don't be too surprised if we see rubbish like this on the revamped Boomerang instead of Geronimo Stilton (and/or it's successor "The New Adventures of Geronimo Stilton"): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p4D212OldhQ

Huh, Pac-Land is airing again? That's a nice surprise. The fact that Yogi's First Christmas is airing makes me hopeful that we may get to see Yogi Bear or Huckleberry Hound return during the late-night hours.
I love classic cartoons!

Quick question I believe ABC has the rights to How the Grinch Stole Christmas airing at 8pm on the 25th what difference will there be between ABC's version and Boomerang's version (if any)
After These Messages....I'll be right back!

ABC will have more edits.  I think Boomerang's version may be CN's version which cuts the A Cat in the Hat Production title card.

Currently, The Garfield Show is on in the U.S at 10am, 10:30am, 5pm, 5:30pm, 10pm, & 10:30pm.

In my opinion, I think the Garfield Show only needs a one hour time slot.

" Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated Christmas Special"?  ??? I can't remember any Christmas special. ...or is that just the name they're giving to the block, since it's being aired at Christmas?
