But, it was impossible that Hasbro has blocked the video uploaded oficially by Boomerang Thailand... Plus, like I said before, they made the promo themselves.
I know they made the promo and took scenes from the show, but that’s what happened, and as you’ve said it is impossible that Hasbro blocked it, and I guess Boomerang Thailand resolved the issue of their YouTube Channel and the promo video returned back to public again and is viewable around the world.

@Daffyrocks: Starting April, Power Players will move to CN NL's night schedule. It won't air during the day anymore.

CN NL should have some European Boomerang cartoons at night to make the schedule more bearable.

Or these ones were used in 2007, but with different background and voice-over? (I do recall you uploading an UK next bumper like this of Top Cat and with female narration, which of course got removed)
As far as I know, the "loop-de-loop" style next bumps were never used on Boom UK, they were only used on Boom EMEA after it "split" (as in, stopped carrying a similar schedule) from Boom UK. Rather, it used the talking head bumps until the 2008 rebrand. Could be completely wrong though.

It seems Hasbro is blocking any Pony Life video that they didn’t upload themselves. They also blocked a clip they sent to Animation World Network (the upload in their article has since been replaced with one by Hasbro). I doubt it’s an actual human doing it (probably copyright bots), but it’s definitely still a problem with stuff like this, and I don’t know why this is happening now. It wasn’t always like this. At least Boomerang Thailand’s upload got unblocked.

Oddly enough the jingle was the only audio element of the 2007 idents that was used on Boomerang EMEA.

I thought we were going to have the live-action idents, but no, luckily enough we were spared.

this is stupid....

Actually, the 2007 Boomerang UK look also had its credits pushback version:
I knew it. Cause I remember the "loop-a-loop" NEXT bumper (normal, not push-back) of Top Cat from Boomerang UK with female voice-over on Youtube. And that soundtrack was obviously done for those live-action bumpers, and Boomerang EMEA only got it for the NEXT/LATER bumpers. When Boomerang CEE launched in 2012, that jingle was replaced on the NEXT/LATER bumpers with the soundtracks from the 2005 "Character head" bumpers

Yes, that loop-de-loop style of NEXT/Later bumpers were introduced in the UK from 2007, which was when the live-action/teen trend had already kicked in. I do have the Top Cat kept in my archive, but not uploaded it anywhere. Someone also posted an end-credits snippet, but I'm guessing that video is down too.
Pretty much the idents were the same, but they took away the blue background, and added some blurry coloured ones instead.

There was a set of idents around late 2008/2009, in which they used a white ribbon colouring the logo and various coloured arrows, somewhat similar to CN Europe's Arrow Era, I guess. At this point, they added new live-action bumpers, which included the garage band, cyclists and fashion shoppers.





2009-2012 was when the other set of NEXT/LATER bumpers came in, which were the letters shooting out of one corner or something. The only difference was they were using both the 2007 and 2008 live-action bumpers together, until they later dropped them in 2010, where they replaced the idents with Looney Tunes and Tom & Jerry clips with the current transition graphics at the time.

Oh yeah, I do remember that look. That was the period when shows like Garfield Show, Pink Panther and Pals and Casper's Scare School premiered on the channel, which were going to later invade the whole line-up... I guess in 2010 they oficially decided to give up on the "live-action teens" format of the channel, and good riddance for that! (though they kept My Spy Family even after the 2012 branding took over, Idk though how long it lasted on the channel) If you still have old Boomerang UK, EMEA and CEE, please!! I said it before, I am saying it again. Do not hesitate to send them to me somehow privately!! :p

Boomerang CEE Schedule and Highlights for May 2021

- New episodes of Scooby-Doo and Guess Who (S2.2) premiere on 3rd May, the final half of the second season. They will air daily at 15.00 CET with reruns the day atfer at 06.00 CET. The batch that consists of the S2 finale (where the gang literally get to meet their respective voice actors!) will last until 15th May.
- The third season of Grizzy and The Lemmings (Grizzy and the Lemmings World Tour) premieres on 10th May. New episodes air daily at 18.25 CET with reruns the day after at 10.25 CET. 27 new episodes will air as part of this batch, until 18th May.
- New episodes of Pat The Dog (S2.2) premiere on 24th May (probably also the final episodes of the season). They will air daily at 17.30 CET with reruns the day after at 09.30 CET. Also in the batch are included two specials.
- Continuing with: new episodes of Mush-Mush and The Mushables (01/05) and Boomerang Playground (ongoing).

Schedule changes:
- It seems there will be an unhighlighted Scooby-Doo special program on 1st and 3rd of May, since on those days there will be two films each at 10.00 CET back-to-back, different from the usual schedule from the rest of the month at those times. On 01/05 there will be "Scooby-Doo: Where's My Mummy?" followed by "Mecha Mutt Menace", while on 03/05 there will be "Scooby-Doo and Kiss: Rock and Roll Mystery" followed by "Scooby-Doo and the Spooky Scarecrow". Each day an element (single episode) of The Tom and Jerry Show will run after the films as filler.
- Lamput will lose it's morning showing at 08.40 CET, while will continue airing at 14.40 CET.
- Scooby-Doo and Guess Who is back this month and will air from 3rd May at 15.00 CET and at 06.00 CET from the day afterwards. It will replace Be Cool Scooby-Doo in both slots for this month, though expect the former to come back shortly after Guess Who is done with all the new episodes, kicking it out as always.
- Power Players is gone from the schedule. Thank God! It will be replaced on both slots by New Looney Tunes from 17th May, at 13.00 and 20.00 CET. Power Players will instead move to CN CEE at the end of the month where it will stay overnights. NLT will get another slot and at a more decent time which I am glad about, while on primetime it will move up a slot from its usual 21.00 CET place and Taffy gets its former place. Though, I think New Looney Tunes will be completely kicked out once Looney Tunes Cartoons comes out on the channel next month (yes, that's right! it has been confirmed that the show will finally join Boomerang CEE in June, approximatively an year after the original HBO Max premiere!).

The official highlights mention 9hh premiering this month, which means exactly 27 episodes, though the actual schedule mentions only 26 NEW episodes. On 18th, after those new episodes I mentioned above, a repeat of "Lemming Fortune" will occur afterwards. WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON?! Besides, considering the story-arc of this new season, airing the episodes in this order may actually ruin the continuity of the episodes... So, are there 26 episodes set to premiere this month of Grizzy, or 27??? @EdCNPowerpuffDrama @ballwa44 @RomaniaCNCEE or any other, can you confirm??
