Boomerang was a television channel in Kuboia owned by Turner Broadcasting Networks Kuboia. Launched on 4th October, 2004, the Kuboian version of the channel was mostly reminiscent to that of the Pan-European version.

Like its international counterparts, Boomerang broadcasted a selection of classic American animated series mostly from the likes of Hanna-Barbera and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, as well as a selection of modern programming. Unlike other Boomerang channels, however, it also aired classic children's programmes produced by the BBC in the United Kingdom.

The channel was closed on 14th April, 2013, and was replaced by Tooncast the following day.

History

The channel was launched on 4th October, 2004, using the same logo and idents used by the European version of the channel. The channel aired for 24 hours since its launch.

The Kuboian version of Boomerang would also use its graveyard time slot (10:00p.m. to 4:00a.m.) to broadcast children's programmes that aired during BBC1's Watch with Mother strand in the United Kingdom during the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. This is a similar to the Nick Jr. Classics block that aired on Nick Jr. Kuboia during the late 2000s, except that focused more on children's programming from the 1970s and 1980s.

Boomerang was closed at 11:59p.m. on 14th April, 2013 after an episode of The Woodentops. It was replaced by Tooncast, which launched in its place two minutes later.
