A new hour long programming block on Cartoon Network UK & Ireland will start on Tuesday 7th October at 6pm called Power Hour, it will feature new episodes of Ben 10: Omniverse and Lego Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu.
Some news was released today regarding Adult Swim, it has been announced that an Adult Swim block will air on TBS Brazil from Monday 3rd November, the block will air from midnight and will likely broadcast the following shows: Robot Chicken, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Sealab 2021, Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law and Space Ghost: Coast to Coast.
Adult Swim was part of Cartoon Network Latin America’s schedule from 2005 to 2008, but was removed due to low ratings.
Earlier today, in the middle of the night in Latin America, Boomerang finally re-branded, becoming the first feeds in the world to use the new branding. Over the last seven months, since the press release in February, there was a lot of speculation of what branding Boomerang will use, either the current ribbon logo and underground/underwater/land/space theme from Europe or the new logos that were recently trademarked by Turner as listed on the United States Patent Office as well as a new theme, it turned out it was the latter.
Since April, Boomerang Latin America has been in a transitional phase, it used to be a channel airing live action shows aimed at teenagers, but suddenly these shows were pushed to the night schedule leaving the rest of the schedule to be full of animated shows. The new Boomerang format is more inclined to family audiences, airing classics such as Scooby Doo and Tom and Jerry but also airing pre-school shows such as Lazy Town. Also today, Boomerang is running a marathon featuring shows in their new schedule as a preview of what’s to come.
This is Boomerang’s new logo, there isn’t an official high resolution image publicly available:
Here is some presentation of the new branding, the logo is black and white but the bumpers are ironically colourful, it’s similar to Cartoon Network’s current Check It 3.0 branding.
It is not currently known exactly when Boomerang USA or any other Boomerang feeds around the world will be re-branded, it has been announced that Boomerang USA will rebrand in late Autumn but a specific date hasn’t been given.
