The new preschool series Dino Ranch finally airs on Boomerang

Boomerang launches in more African households and this doesn't change my opinion about the channel. Still believe Cartoonito will take its position.

I agree that this doesn't necessarily mean Boomerang has a future, the Czech localisation is only audio and HD, there's nothing presentation wise, dubbed programming can still be split between Cartoon Network with some younger skewing Boomerang programming remaining on a possible Cartoonito channel. Cartoonito is coming to EMEA within the next few years after all.

Same for the GOtv deal, WarnerMedia can just make use of the distribution deal and turn Boomerang into Cartoonito.

Not for the next few years, it’s process must have been processed between this year and 2023. We may expect in 2022, an expansion/rollout for Cartoonito again, incl. Southeast Asia, parts of Europe (where it used to have Cartoonito before on Boomerang in CEE between October 2011 and January 2014), and even Sub-Saharan Africa (previously aired on Boomerang too, in the time period between 2011 and 2014).

In Italy I can hardly see them replace Boomerang with Cartoonito, because the latter is a FTA channel here partly owned by Mediaset.

But I see many WB series moving over CN and Boomerang is getting even more filled with European imports.

It seems they're using the newer prints. At least DVD. Maybe even Bluray.

CZ update: Selected episodes of Pat the Dog, Mush Mush, Be Cool Scooby Doo are dubbed. Promos and bumpers seem to be in EN. Of course no opt out ads and just fillers. But I think we can expect that to change in summer/autumn.
Now you know what CN NL was like in 2001-2010 ;)

I can't help but think that they didn't bother to dub the promos because Cartoonito will require new promos.

Yeah, it definitely looks like they are in the process of dubbing all programs.

Alice and Lewis (CZ)
Baby Looney Tunes (CZ)
Be Cool Scooby Doo (CZ)
Ben 10 (CZ)
Grizzly and the Lemmings (CZ)
Looney Tunes Cartoons (CZ)
Moley (upcoming, probably CZ)
Mush Mush and the Mushables (CZ)
Pat the Dog (CZ)
Power Players (CZ)
Taffy (CZ)
The New Scooby-Doo Movies (CZ)

The Tom and Jerry Show (mostly silent)

Lamput (?)
Mr. Bean: The Animated Series (?)
Mr. Magoo (?)

They used the BD masters for re-run the series.

Tom and Jerry in New York continues to air on Boomerang Turkey. The program is shown as a general audience, so anyone can watch it.View attachment 292855View attachment 292856
Shouldn't the DOG be in the top? There is nothing in the top-right, except for the Reklam logo. The HD logo isn't updated to the ones used in Boomerang MENA, because it's from 2015 graphics.

Also, in other news, I was searching in Canal+ Ethiopia website & Facebook/Instagram pages, and it said that Boomerang Africa has been replaced by Cartoonito. On the other hand, Boomerang Africa is still existing on DStv & Azam TV. I wish if it was true, and not fake or a mistake made by them.

We need an Ethiopian Canal+ Subscriber to confirm, if this has officially happened or not. Someone should ask them immediately. If it came true, then it'll have the same situation as Cartoon Network Portugal, when it first launched in Angola & Mozambique on DStv & TV Cabo in October 1st, just two months before Portugal.

The French version of Boomerang Africa (which is in Northern Africa) is likely replace with Cartoonito, however the English version of Boomerang (which js in South Africa) remained that for now.

I can see predictions of Nickelodeon Making the next Sonic Cartoon after Sonic Prime, Mainly Because they mentioned Sonic the Hedgehog on today's Broadcast of the Dallas-49ers Wild Card Game on Nickelodeon

And the Sonic Movie 2 TV spot.

Talk about going the extra mile.
One thing I like about Amazon and Netflix original films is that they’re greenlighting or picking up movies that are riskier,niche,or alternative then most major studio films in the last 5 years or so.

Sure they’re not all winners but at least you can tell they give writers and directors more freedom with their projects
today marks the first anniversary of when tvguide.com had rebranded their website.
