Boomerang is a 24-hour American cable television channel owned by Turner Broadcasting System, a division of Time Warner. Boomerang spun off from a block of the same name from Cartoon Network; it debuted as a channel on April 1, 2000.

The channel specialized in reruns of animated programming from Time Warner's extensive archives, including pre-1986 MGM, Hanna-Barbera, Cartoon Network, Warner Bros. Animation, and DePatie-Freleng Enterprises programs, stretching from cartoon shorts of the 1930s and 1940s (almost always in color) to repeats of shows still in production on Cartoon Network.

The American version of Boomerang was relaunched in 2015 as part of a global rebrand, focusing on original material based on popular brands in addition to the vintage programming.

In the U.S., Boomerang also includes a subscription service-based mobile app, which launched on April 11, 2017.
