Boomerang's Got A Special CHRISTMAS PARTY Invite With Your Name On It

Classic Animated Holiday Programming and Specials to Air Beginning Dec.15

30-Hour Holiday Marathon Ushers in Holiday Traditions Starting Christmas Eve Through Christmas Day

Ring in some holiday cheer this year with Boomerang, Cartoon Network's 24-hour all-cartoon-classics network, as it presents a month-long CHRISTMAS PARTY of beloved seasonal favorites for the entire family. With over 90 hours of holiday programming, including a 30-hour marathon starting at 6:30 am (ET) on Christmas Eve, the celebration will continue with a bonus Scooby-Doo marathon airing all day on New Year's Day.

Spotlighted guests of this onscreen television party, from Tom & Jerry to Papa Smurf to The Powerpuff Girls, span nearly four decades of cartoon history from the late 1960s through the early 2000s. The Boomerang CHRISTMAS PARTY will celebrate not only how favorite animated families like the Flintstones and the Jetsons ring in the holidays, but will also feature Emmy-nominated one-of-a-kind specials like The Town That Santa Forgot. The month-long CHRISTMAS PARTY marathon will wrap up the holiday celebration, beginning on December 24 with Cabbage Patch Kids Christmas Special starting at 6:30 am (ET). Other much-loved specials will include A Scooby Doo Christmas Carol at 8:30 am (ET) and Yogi Bear's All Star Comedy Christmas Caper, beginning on December 25 at 9:00 am (ET).

"Boomerang's CHRISTMAS PARTY takes us back to a time when families would gather around the television for their annual favorites," said Stacy Isenhower, senior vice president of programming and scheduling for Boomerang and Cartoon Network. "The season truly is about family and togetherness, and our programming helps honor that tradition."

To launch the New Year's celebration a week later, Boomerang will include an all-day Scooby-Doo marathon, beginning Jan. 1 at 6:00 am (ET). Cartoon fans can ring in 2014 with some of the best-beloved, spine-tingling Scooby-Doo classics, including Scooby and Scrappy and Yabba-Doo, The 13 Ghosts of Scooby Doo, and movie specials such as Scooby Doo and the Reluctant Werewolf and Scooby Doo and the Ghoul School.
