Boomerang is a cable and satellite television channel owned by Warner Bros.. The Southeast Asian version of Boomerang was launched in September 2005 with a lineup very similar to that of the US version. It started previously as a programming block on Cartoon Network from 2001 to 2005 during weeknights. It has a lot of similarities with the Australian feed, including promos being shared across both feeds.

In December 2012, the channel was replaced by Toonami Asia and Cartoonito. However, it was relaunched in Asia on January 1, 2015, with a new look and as part of the Boomerang's global rebranding effort for 2015. The channel replaced the Asian feed of Cartoonito.[1]


Boomerang on TV5 Kids[edit]

Boomerang on TV5 Kids was aired between September 2015 and September 2017. It airs a few programs straight from Boomerang Southeast Asia and Boomerang Australia and New Zealand.

All of the shows on the Boomerang block are dubbed in Filipino. It currently airs The Looney Tunes Show, Rat-A-Tat, Inspector Gadget, and Mr. Bean: The Animated Series every weekday afternoon.

Since October 2017, the Boomerang block on TV5 Network Philippines was dropped out due to preparing for the collaboration with the U.S.-based sports channel, ESPN; which is currently in the Philippines since December 2017 (during the 2016-2017 PBA Governor's Cup Finals). It is called "ESPN5" (formerly "Sports5").

Former programming blocks[edit]
