Besides making their debut on Boomerang’s brand-new US SVOD service this spring, WB Animation’s original series Dorothy & the Wizard of Oz and Wacky Races will also join Boomerang’s global linear TV channel in June.
Dorothy & the Wizard of Oz, a comedic fantasy series based on the L. Frank Baum book series, follows the titular character after she has defeated the Wicked Witch and is appointed the Princess of Emerald City.
Wacky Racers, a reboot of the slapstick Hanna-Barbera series, follows Penelope Pitstop, a formidable racer who helps save others.
The two series will be available in the US exclusively on the SVOD that will house more than 5,000 titles made by Hanna-Barbera, Looney Tunes and MGM Animation.
Meanwhile it is being understood that the addition of the shows internationally, is part of Boomerang’s plan to build the linear channel as a second flagship to Cartoon Network across global markets.
With a reach of 126 million homes, Boomerang International currently has localised services in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific and Latin America.
