Boomerang (formerly Cartoon Network) is a Canadian English language specialty channel based on the American channel of the same name, which broadcasts animated programming aimed at children and teens. Until March 3, 2019, the channel had a late night counterpart, Adult Swim, which targets young adults. The channel is owned by Corus Entertainment subsidiary Teletoon Canada, Inc., with the brands in use through a brand licensing agreement with WarnerMedia in the United States. The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission classifies the network as a discretionary service. As with most Canadian networks, it is a dual-feed operation with separate Eastern and Pacific schedules and feeds. As of September 2015, it is available in 5 million households nationwide.

As Cartoon Network, the network carried the majority of current-day programming aired by Cartoon Network in the United States, along with some programs from sister network Teletoon to meet their Canadian content guidelines, though Teletoon generally served as the home of the American network's high-profile series.
