Warner Bros. Discovery’s kids channel Boomerang rebrands to Cartoonito with a new slate of original series

SINGAPORE — Warner Bros. Discovery announced that it will rebrand its kids’ TV channel Boomerang to Cartoonito in Southeast Asia, Taiwan, and Hong Kong from July 28. This switch is a result of positive feedback to the Cartoonito-branded block on Boomerang and Cartoon Network launched in 2022, and is focused on being more inclusive to pre-school-aged viewers.

As a full regional channel offering, Cartoonito will introduce a new generation to a diverse slate of original series and welcome them into the world of Warner Bros. Discovery’s iconic franchises. Modern preschool adaptations that support each child’s unique potential include fan-favorite franchises such as Batwheels and Bugs Bunny Builders.

Boomerang favorites including Tom & Jerry, Baby Looney Tunes, Alice & Lewis, Pat the Dog, and Grizzy and the Lemmings will remain on the channel, alongside other friends such as Dino Ranch, Mumfie, and Tangranimals. Cartoonito brings together all of these characters on one channel – while adding brand-new shows like Mittens & Pants and Vida the Vet – offering a wider variety of programs and new adventures for the whole family to enjoy.

The channel’s modern approach to preschool programming is supported by an educational framework called “Human-centric Learning”. All Cartoonito shows follow a curriculum – designed by early childhood education expert Dr. Laura Brown – to form the four pillars of Creativity, Caring, Curiosity, and Courage. The brand aims to inspire kids aged two to six to use their imagination, learn from their mistakes, and treat others with empathy and respect.

“In a year when Warner Bros. celebrates 100 years of entertaining fans, Cartoonito is set to ignite the imaginations of our region’s youngest audience. Our new-look preschool channel celebrates individuality and originality, offering a safe space where kids and their families can laugh and learn alongside beloved characters,” said Christopher Ho, Head of Kids Networks for Southeast Asia at Warner Bros. Discovery.

The linear Boomerang channel will be rebranded as Cartoonito on all platforms across Southeast Asia from July 28. The channel is available in English, Mandarin, Cantonese, Thai, Bahasa Malaysia, and Bahasa Indonesia.
