Boomerang TV Series

Coming to America had only been released four years prior, but the hype of Harlem Nights made its ultimate performance a disappointment, exacerbated by the fact that he wrote and directed it. The underperformance of Another 48 Hours and a two year gap from movie screens meant Murphy needed a comedy comeback, and Boomerang provided it.

Boomerang Subscription Service

When I was growing up in the ’90s, channels like Nickelodeon, The Disney Channel, and Cartoon Network were gaining popularity and figuring out exactly what they wanted to be in the rapidly expanding world of cable television. The result was plenty of experimental cartoons that maybe shouldn’t have been expressly for kids (such as Ren & Stimpy and Johnny Bravo), but that also meant that there were classic cartoons from decades past that were finding traction with the children of parents who grown up with them a generation before.

In recent years, as each of those networks has expanded their reach of original programming, going so far as to have spin-off channels like Teen Nick and Disney XD. Sadly, this means classic cartoons have gone by the wayside, and there hasn’t been an easy way for those who want to watch shows like Looney Tunes, Tom & Jerry, The Flintstones and more.
