In late 2005, Turner Broadcasting System Europe reported that they had intended to launch Boomerang in the Nordic region. They had also applied to broadcast it in the Swedish digital terrestrial network in the fall of that year.[3] Boomerang was, however, not granted a license by the Swedish government at the time.

On 15 September 2009, Boomerang was an evening block on Cartoon Network. On 30 September 2010, it was launched as a channel on Viasat's satellite platform, with the block closing the day before.[4] The channel launched on 1 April 2011 from the Canal Digital platform.[5] Boomerang had previously been offered as a programming block on Cartoon Network. On 19 January 2015, Boomerang Nordic applied the 2014–15 rebrand.

Due to the channel changes from 17 April to 1 May 2023, the Czech Radio and Television Broadcasting Council also gave the green light to show the channel in Latvia.[6]

Transition as Cartoonito

In January 2022, it was announced that a Cartoonito programming block would also come to Boomerang's Nordic countries on 1 February 2022.[7][8]

Boomerang fully transformed into a 24/7 Cartoonito channel on 4 September 2023, along with its Turkey and MENA counterparts.[9]
