Boomerang Rings in the Holidays with a Month-Long CHRISTMAS PARTY

Classic Animated Specials to Air on Weekends in December; 18-Hour Holiday Marathon Brings Cheer Christmas Day

Boomerang, Turner Broadcasting System's commercial-free classic cartoon network, will present holiday specials of yesteryear throughout December as part of a month-long CHRISTMAS PARTY. Two full hours of holiday programming will entertain families every Saturday and Sunday from 9-11 a.m. (ET), culminating in an 18-hour marathon of cheer beginning at 6 a.m. (ET) on Christmas Day.

The spotlighted guests of this party, from Tom & Jerry to Papa Smurf, span nearly four decades of cartoon history from the late 1960s through the early 2000s. This 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(R)-nominated one-of-a-kind specials like The Town That Santa Forgot.

"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."

Highlights of the Boomerang CHRISTMAS PARTY include:

Later that night, Mr. Spacely is visited by his old partner, Jacob Marsley, who tells him of three spirits that will visit him - and they do! - showing Mr. Spacely that his future is doomed unless he changes his ways!

· The Town That Santa Forgot (1993), Sunday, Dec. 16, 9 a.m. (ET): Dick van Dyke stars as the voice of a kind grandfather relaying the tale of Jeremy Creek, a spoiled boy who learns it is better to give than to receive.

· The Powerpuff Girls: 'Twas the Fight Before Christmas (2003), Sunday, Dec. 16, 10 a.m. (ET): The Powerpuff Girls are busy saving Christmas everywhere when Princess, Townsville's greediest little girl, plots to trick Santa into turning her into the fourth Powerpuff Girl. Bubbles, Blossom and Buttercup explode into a Yuletide winter blizzard of bad-girl-thwarting action to put Princess in her place and keep Christmas from disappearing forever.

· The Smurfs Christmas Special (1982), Saturday, Dec. 20, 4:25 p.m. (ET): The Smurfs must use all the holiday goodness they can muster to battle an even greater evil than Gargamel.

· Yogi's First Christmas (1980), Saturday, Dec. 22, 9 a.m. (ET): Hanna-Barbera's most beloved classic characters, including Huckleberry Hound and Snagglepuss, join Yogi at Jellystone Lodge for a Christmas celebration in this much-loved holiday movie.
