Boomerang UK January 2017 Highlights
Tom and Jerry New Year’s Day Marathon
Airs all day on Sunday 1st January
Welcome in 2017 by joining Boomerang’s favourite cat and mouse duo on New Year’s Day in an unmissable marathon dedicated to Tom & Jerry. Catch the best pranks and pursuits in Tom & Jerry, Tom & Jerry Tales and The Tom and Jerry Show as well as the best Tom & Jerry Movies.
Grizzy and The Lemmings
Starts Monday 9th January, airs weekdays at 4.30pm
In the middle of the Canadian wilderness, there is a haven of human civilisation – a forest ranger’s house, which has been left empty.
Being top of the food chain, GRIZZY, makes himself at home, enjoying modern luxuries from air con and home cinema to a sauna and internet connection! Naturally, no animal dares to contest this bear’s privilege…except only the most ridiculous mammal family, THE LEMMINGS! For these guys, they have stumbled into an entertainment park and embark on making Grizzy’s retreat as painful as possible. Even for a bear who weighs 500 pounds and stands seven feet tall, it’s not that easy to get rid of these fur balls who have the I.Q. of a pea! Plus, there is strength in their numbers… Witness an atmosphere of total madness, where the rivals constantly try to outsmart each other with their cheeky plans!
The Happos Family
Starts Saturday 7th January Saturdays at 8am.
The Happos Family live in an enclosure in a European safari park. In the morning the park is open to human visitors who drive past the Happos, taking pictures of them wallowing in the mud, lazing by the pool, sleeping in the shade of the tree. But when the last car races out of the safari park and the gates are shut to all visitors, the Happos jump up out of the mud, wake up from their snoozing and get dressed up. It’s now their time for crazy, zany, Happo adventures. Each of the twenty episodes is centred around one of the ten costumed Happos. Whether its Astro Happo longing to fly to the moon or Stunt Happo attempting a daredevil feat or Party Happo in a dance off with Ballerina and Bollywood, each storyline is laugh out loud visual slap stick comedy with heart.
Starts Monday 9th January weekdays at 6.15pm.
Bunnicula features the paranormal comedy adventures of 13-year-old Mina, her pets Chester the paranoid cat, Harold the lovable family dog, and of course Bunnicula, the fun-loving vampire rabbit – who Mina discovers and adopts as her third pet. Stories follow the three animals as they deal with supernatural events that are silly and spooky! On any given night, they might find themselves confronting a ghostly alligator busting its way through the building’s pipes, or sinister “spider lambs” invading Mina’s room. Bunnicula is almost always both the cause of and the solution to all of our heroes’ problems.
Airs every Sunday from 9am.
Boomerang is dedicating every Sunday in January to a Scooby-Doo takeover featuring a different series each Sunday, and concluding the month with a day of movies and specials.
