Boomerang Launches In Taiwan 14th November

Boomerang Launches In Taiwan 14th November

Cartoon Network’s classic and family friendly animation sister channel – Boomerang will be launching in Taiwan for the first time on Monday 14th November. The pan-Asia-Pacific Boomerang feed is already available in 32 million homes across the region, the Taiwanese launch will expand the channel’s distribution and add an extra 1.6 million Kbro and Taiwan Mobile subscribers to its potential viewership.

From Boomerang’s debut on 14th November, viewers will be able to enjoy classic animation from the likes of Tom and Jerry, Scooby-Doo and Looney Tunes and also contemporary shows from Warner Bros. Animation and other independent studios such as Bunnicula, Talking Tom and Friends and also Grizzy and the Lemmings; which has been an kids media industry hit at the MIP Junior convention at Cannes this year.

Viewers in Taiwan will also be able to enjoy episodes of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and watch animated movies on Sundays. Shows will be available in Mandarin Chinese audio and traditional Chinese subtitles. Cartoon Network is already the most popular international kids channel in Taiwan, its logical that Boomerang should follow in Cartoon Network’s footsteps and launch in the country, as Boomerang is Turner’s second most distributed animation channel.

The Boomerang Asia pan-feed originally launched on 1st September 2005, closed in 2012 and was revived on 1st January 2015 replacing Cartoonito Asia. The channel also has an companion mobile app called “Boomerang Watch and Play”, while using the app, people can watch Boomerang shows while playing a series of mini-games.

Boomerang Southeast Asia currently airs a programming block called “Caturdays” as the name suggests, it’s a block of shows featuring Boomerang’s resident cat characters airing on Saturdays: the block features episodes of Tom and Jerry, Silvester and Tweety, Pink Panther and Pals and The Garfield Show. Turner Asia-Pacific promoted “Caturdays” as a programming feature for the channel’s launch in Taiwan.

From The Turner Asia-Pacific Press Release

Boomerang, Turner’s global kids’ brand and companion channel to Cartoon Network, is now available in Taiwan for the first time.

With an additional 1.6 million subscribers across Kbro and Taiwan Mobile platforms, the agreement increases the channel’s distribution in Asia Pacific to 32 million households since the channel’s relaunch in late 2014.

From November 14, the all-animation network will have both Mandarin audio and traditional Chinese subtitles, boasting an impressive line-up of new series and movies programmed for both kids and their families.

In addition to the ever-popular Tom and Jerry, Scooby-Doo and Looney Tunes, new shows include Bunnicula, Talking Tom and the hilarious Grizzy and the Lemmings – the most-talked-about animated series at MIP Junior in Cannes last month. Other channel highlights in November feature new episodes of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and Sunday movies with Barbie and Tom and Jerry.

Phil Nelson, Turner’s Managing Director for North and Southeast Asia Pacific, said:

“To see Boomerang’s country count and regional distribution maintain this kind of momentum is fantastic. Cartoon Network is already the No. 1 international Kids channel in Taiwan and Boomerang will complement it perfectly – providing viewers with the ultimate family-friendly destination for iconic cartoon franchises.”

Boomerang is created for kids aged 4-9, as well as their families and caregivers. In addition to new and exclusive content from Warner Bros. Animation, international premium acquisitions include: The Garfield Show, Pink Panther and Pals, Strawberry Shortcake, Mr. Bean: The Animated Series and Inspector Gadget.

To complement the on-air offering regionally, Boomerang Watch and Play hosts both video and gaming content in a safe and fun app designed for tablets.

Cartoon Network At Brand Licensing Europe 2016

This week (11/10/2016 to 13/10/2016) is the Brand Licensing Europe 2016 convention at the Olympia in London, UK. The convention is the largest of its kind in Europe in the area of product licensing with brands ranging from kids cartoons, movies and sporting events and leagues are represented at the convention. The convention is an opportunity for potential licensees to buy the rights to use brands for a product or service, this can be anything from toys and collectables, clothing and even amusement rides.

Cartoon Network is there as usual promoting their latest shows, most particually The Powerpuff Girls,the channel is promoting the show with giant inflatables of Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup and also an action scene statue outside. The other show Cartoon Network is mostly promoting at the convention is Adventure Time.

The Adventure Time brand in EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) currently has more than 100 licensees. A notable licencing deal was one with Lego to include Adventure Time as part of Lego Dimensions – a “toys-to-life” game, in that the player has Lego figures and a toy pad which can be played within the game itself where it features characters and environments. The Lego Dimensions game has been open up to include many popular movie and TV franchises, the game has brought Lego collecting to a brand new level and provides an additional virtual and interactive experience to ordinary physical play.

The Adventure Time McDonald’s Happy Meal mixup character toy promotion will spread to other part of Europe, Middle East and Africa in 2017 after a successful campaign in the UK. There are currently Adventure Time clothing deals with retailers across Europe ranging from Next, Primark and HMV in the UK, C&A in Germany, El Corte Inglés in Spain and also Adventure Time character themed Dr. Martens boots. The Adventure Time boots partnership between Cartoon Network and Dr. Martens won the Best Licensed Adult Apparel Range award at 2016 Licensing Awards this year. Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time also won the Best Teen or Adult Licensed Property award.

Among the licensing holders for The Powerpuff Girls are Posh Paws, the comics and toys retailer Forbidden Planet, Roy Lowe and Sons, William Lamb, C&M Licensing and global toy partner – Spin Master.

Johanne Broadfield, vice president, Cartoon Network Enterprises EMEA commented on the gradually growing success of Adventure Time:

“In a little over five years, ‘Adventure Time’ has gone on an extraordinary and magical journey from an underground secret, to a cult hit, and now is riding high as a true mass-market proposition. The scale of partners that are supporting the franchise is immense and this really demonstrates how it is appealing to a broader audience than ever–from boys, girls, tweens, teens and adults, everyone loves it.”

Meanwhile over on the Warner Bros. stand, they’re promoting Teen Titans Go!, Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Looney Tunes.
