There’s no shortage of kid-friendly content available on streaming media services like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. But what if you want your kids to grow up with an appreciation of the classics?

Time Warner has unveiled a new subscription video service called Boomerang that will stream classic cartoons when it launches this spring.

Price at $5 per month or $40 per year, it’ll be a lot cheaper than Netflix… but it also has a much more limited selection of content. In some cases that might be a good thing though.


Programming will include Looney Tunes, Tom and Jerry, The Flintstones, The Jetsons, The Smurfs, and Scooby-Doo cartoons.

Content will come from Hanna-Barbera, Looney Tunes, and MGM. There will also be some newer, original content and Boomerang says “thousands of episodes” will be available for on-demand streaming.

Boomerang will be available for smartphones, tablets, computers, and “streaming devices.”

Probably the best thing about the ad-free service is that you don’t have to worry about kids stumbling across inappropriate content… you know, unless the exit the app and fire up a web browser on your phone or something.

  1. I like some of the more obscure stuff like captain caveman, Hong Kong Fooey .. And I hope they will maintain rights to play Josie and the pussycats

  2. We have a lot of Scooby on DVD along with comprehensive sets Looney Tunes / Tom & Jerry on Blu-ray but if there’s enough odd ball stuff that I didn’t otherwise want to buy on here I could see us subscribing for awhile at this low price. I enjoy watching the classics with my daughter (these were already classics when I was a kid, so extra classic to her!).
