Never!!!!

Actually, just finished :) - I'm not the greatest especially of late in editing (life and circumstances of such) but try to whenever it comes to mind.

A lil 'eh' about Grizzy being removed, but schedulers will be schedulers.

Peanuts' airings starting Monday won't be in their proper order, but not extremely random. First off for the 5:00pm portion, they're showing #s 1, 9 & 57. 5:30pm will be 2, 10 & 58. 9 & 10 will again play Friday in the same respective half-hours but not sure what 3rd of said half-hour.

Kind of surprised they'd scale back classic T&J on weekends in favor of T&JT which expands yet again. LT now gets an extra hour and will be the most played show on Boom. At least for T&J's sake, it'll almost look like Boom of old as it'll only have the 9am hour weekends while still having a couple 2 hour blocks per weekday. T&JT will now play 30x during the weekdays and 16-18x during the weekend (sometimes maybe 17.3 or whatever based on Theater overlap) for a total of 46-48x per week. Same 26, of course :p

Sonic Boom doesn't appear to be proper either. Via zap2it and backdoor, the 1st season episodes will play first each half hour with a later episode in the :15 and :45 portions.

There's a chance we do see Grizzy back on TV eventually. No, I don't believe we'll see its second season there, but its bound to be used as a replacement for anything else.

With what's left on the schedule, I see T&JT or SD!MI being next to go which could make for a potential Grizzy return. Plus there's always the chance they remove MK&M for it later on. Hard to say.

Lastly, next weekend will be the first time Boomerang Theater doesn't show anything Scooby-Doo in 53 weeks. March 3rd-4th were two Tom & Jerry movies which previously mentioned is still to date the last any of them played on Boom. I don't know as far back as the last time something not from either of those franchises played, but it's been a good long while. Probably back to early 2015 before MLK Day and from 2014.
They played fosters a few weeks back

It's impressive the shows that air don't air that much by a landslide, though for the most part it is the same thing over and over for beyond 7 days, unless of course they are the shows that air 10-5:30pm as those at least see a switch on weekends.

Is there a chance Boomerang might air Regular Show episodes starring Mr. Maellard in honor of David Odgen Stiers?
I highly doubt it. The only time they ever promoted Regular Show was its apps/DVDs.

You'll just have to watch online. That's how I watch cartoons.

I never got why people considered the toys "old" when they were supposed to feel old...

They would say that because not all shows had toys, in 2014 most HB shows were gone and Chowder, The Garfield Show, and several other shows made up most of the schedule. I think the toys could have worked but most got tired to see the same thing over and over again rather than the age itself of the toys.

Ah I see, I thought they meant that the toys were too old for the channel.

Real sad to see Grizzy kicked off the air, especially since full episodes are incredibly hard to come by online. A Season 2 is in the works and its probably a cheap show to have air new episodes so hopefully it makes a return. In other news the stealth airings of Bunnicula are killing me inside because I keep missing them. As soon as Grizzy makes it to the app I think I'll have to look into getting a subscription gah.

At first, I thought Brian Hohlfeld working on many shows Nicole Dubuc worked on was just a coincidence . It turns out they're married. I previously thought the Paul Dini / Misty Lee marriage had the largest age gap (he was born in 1957 while she was born in 1976), but this is the one that's larger (he was born in 1957 while she was born in 1978, making 21 years). I'm not complaining, but this is surprising.
Into the Spider-Verse is definitely one of the better animated films I've seen this year. I really enjoyed its comicbooky art style and animation. I wouldn't mind a sequel.
