Boomerang UK January 2014 Weekends

Boomerang Cinema remains on weekends, at its usual 10:00 and 17:00 slots. All shows are now in hour blocks in the daytime. Each show running for an hour, instead of the previous mixed blocks. Pink Panther and Pals airs once on weekends, at 15:30. Sylvester & Tweety Mysteries get some weekend airtime at 11:30 and 15:00. Casper's Scare School is gone from the schedule, airing only on weekdays, while Mr Bean (both versions) is gone completely.

Still no change to the late-night schedule. Especially now that i discovered that all 3 networks, CN, CN Too and Boomerang are airing The Cramp Twins in the evenings. It returns to Cartoon Network from January 1st, airing at 21:00, followed at 22:00 on CN Too. then, as listed below, Boomerang will air it at 23:00, followed by later repeats on all 3 channels. Skatoony will run in hours on CN Too at 21:00, then on Boomerang at 22:00. This is really annoying. Why won't they split their own schedule with different programming? who wants to flick channels to watch more of the same show??

Boomerang UK January 2014 Weekdays

An interesting change from Monday 6th Jan. Mornings and afternoons change, with Looney Tunes Show airing at 6:00 and 18:30, The Garfield Show at 6:30 and 16:00, Pink Panther & Pals airing at 7:00, 13:00, 16:30 and 20:00, Casper's Scare School at 14:00 and 19:30, Scooby Doo Where Are You at 19:00 and What's New Scooby Doo at 7:30.

The big thing is Mr Bean, both versions, is removed from the schedule. Officially gone, or another month hiatus, i have no idea. February will tell. No late-night changes, which is a shame. i thought they had something going there.

Krypto the Superdog returns, replacing Jelly Jamm at 9:45.
Sylvester & Tweety Mysteries also return. It'll air at 8:30 and 18:00. That's interesting, giving them a morning slot now.

UPDATE: No film on Wednesdays.

Meanwhile, CN will bring back The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy and Ed, Edd & Eddy at 11am. in fact, most of the schedule will be changed there, which is good. no more repeated patterns this year.

While on POP, i found out that Yogi Bear and New Adventures of Tom & Jerry were gone. No surprise, airing on a network that isn't available to everyone.

Disgruntled employees like Assistant Manager Porky Pig, Marvin Martian, Speedy Gonzales, and Elmer Fudd plead to Daffy Duck for small concessions like a day off on Christmas and discounted toys, but Daffy is relentless in his pursuit of the almighty dollar. It's up to last minute shopper Bugs Bunny; the ghosts of Christmases past (Tweety and Granny), present (Yosemite Sam) and future (Taz); and Porky Pig's young daughter Priscilla to make Daffy see the error of his ways and discover the true meaning of Christmas.

Jerry explores the house during Christmas Eve night, discovering delectable Candy Canes and squeaky toys, until he wakes up Tom by accident.

In the Arctic wastes, Tom is a fisherman with nothing to show for it but a bunch of holes in the ice and a very cold worm. When Jerry has beginner's luck and catches a fat fish, Tom tries to steal it. 

Looney Tunes (episode showings may vary)
Bugs Bunny's Christmas Carol
In a short Adaptation to Charles Dickens, a cold Bob Cratchit (played by Porky Pig) is working non-stop for careless, grouchy Scrooge (Yosemite Sam). Bugs tries to help Bob by "borrowing" a lump of coal from Scrooge's office and giving it to Bob to keep him warm. But when Scrooge's cat, Sylvester discovers Bob warming up, he warns his master and Bob gets fired. After giving Bugs some welcomed hospitality by Porky, he's introduced by the family, including Tiny Tim (played by Tweety Pie), Bob suddenly gets a foreclosure notice from Scrooge, and Bugs decides to take drastic action: by making Scrooge get into the holiday and persuade him from throwing Bob Cracthit into the streets.

After getting tangled, and ending up in Santa's outfit, Taz finds himself on a sleigh ride to Bugs Bunny's house. Bugs, discovering its an imposter, tries to tame Taz and and eventually returns Santa's sleigh back to the North Pole.

Once again, Tiny Toons is getting a christmas-only airing, being their festive special. The Grinch is probably is only other miscellaneous christmas feature on Boomerang, as the rest are all based on their programming. No consideration for their 4am classics slot, so The Flintstones or Top Cat remain in their normal episode run.
