Time Warner properties Warner Bros. and Turner have teamed up to launch a new animated streaming service called Boomerang, the companies announced today.
If the name sounds familiar to you, that’s likely because Turner has been running a cable network by the same name for 17 years. Much like its live-TV counterpart, the Boomerang streaming service will offer more than 5,000 titles, including classic Hanna-Barbera, Looney Tunes and MGM animated series like Scooby Doo, Tom & Jerry, Bugs Bunny, The Jetsons, The Flintstones and more.
Boomerang will also be home to a number of new, original series, which you can read about in an excerpt from today’s announcement below:
Boomerang will be the exclusive home to a slate of new, original series, including Warner Bros. Animation’s Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz, an uplifting comedic fantasy series that transports audiences to the magical land of Oz and follows the ruby slipper adventures of its brave and feisty princess protagonist; and Wacky Races, a full-engine overhaul of the Hanna-Barbera classic series that takes viewers on a ride filled with zany slapstick comedy, high-octane thrills and exotic locales around the world. Additionally, Boomerang will be the only place to catch new episodes of three fan-favorite series, Scooby-Doo, Looney Tunes and Tom & Jerry.
The ad-free service will launch on web, iOS and Android for $4.99 per month (with a seven-day free trial) or for $39.99 per year (with a 30-day free trial). Post-launch, the service will expand to platforms like Amazon, Roku and Apple TV, with more possible options to be announced later.
For now, go ahead and check out the official trailer for the newly announced service below.
