History Edit

The block launched on June 27, 2016, replacing Looney Tunes, Tom & Jerry, Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!, The Flintstones, and The Smurfs (the latter three of which would later air as part of the block's line-up). To symbolize the beginning of the block, the block aired the whole first seasons episodes of Dexter's Laboratory, Codename: Kids Next Door, The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, Courage the Cowardly Dog, and Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends (including its pilot film, House of Bloo's) from June 27 to July 3, 2016.

On August 2, 2016, The Flintstones and The Smurfs joined the block's line-up, replacing Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends and Courage the Cowardly Dog (the latter two of which would later return on October 3, 2016, replacing The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy and Codename: Kids Next Door). With the addition of those two shows, the block was no longer restricted to just airing Cartoon Network's archival original content, and could now air Hanna-Barbera cartoons as well.

From October 25 to 31, to tie in with the 2016 incarnation of Halloween, the block aired Halloween and horror-themed episodes of Dexter's Laboratory, The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, Chowder, The Flintstones, The Smurfs, The Jetsons, and Ed, Edd N Eddy, as well as marathons for Courage the Cowardly Dog and Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!.

Captain Planet and the Planeteers aired on the block from January 2, 2017 to February 6, 2017. The next day, The Jetsons and Codename: Kids Next Door began airing in its place and continue airing until March 6, 2017, where they along with The Flintstones were removed from the block's line-up. Chowder and Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!, which were then only shown seasonally, recived their own timeslots on the block, and The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy retuned to the blcok's line-up. This was the block's last line-up change

To symbolize the end of the block, the block aired the final episodes of Dexter's Laboratory, Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Chowder, and The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy from March 27 to April 3, 2017. The block ended on April 3, 2017, with Looney Tunes, Tom and Jerry, Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, and The Powerpuff Girls (2016 TV Series) taking the place of the block's timeslots. With the end of the block, Boomerang is no longer airing any of Cartoon Network's 1990s and 2000's programming.
