Boomerang UK Christmas Schedule Starts Monday 19th December
Boomerang UK and Ireland’s Christmas school holidays schedule will start from Monday 19th December at 8am. During the Christmas period there will be holiday specials of The Tom & Jerry Show, Looney Tunes and Mr Bean: The Animated Series. Kicking off the official start to the Christmas schedule, Boomerang UK will be airing a brand new Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! Christmas special called ‘Scary Christmas’. In ‘Scary Christmas’, the gang arrive in a town on Christmas Eve; unusually the place is under attack by a Pterodactyl, which seems rather random and has nothing to do with Christmas at all. 😀
The Be Cool, Scooby Doo Christmas episode will be repeated again on the same day at 11am and at 1.45pm there will be a new episode of Wabbit.
For the Christmas season, Boomerang UK has opened up their Christmas microsite. The microsite features games, videos and a Christmas Card Maker, where you can upload a photo, add Christmas stickers and send your customised card to your friends and family.
