Clas­sic car­toons from your past

Mac|Life - - HOME LIFE - J.R. Book­wal­ter

If you were a child in the ’70s, you would have been spoiled by a di­verse se­lec­tion of qual­ity entertainment on syn­di­cated tele­vi­sion – in­clud­ing car­toons. Thank­fully, clas­sic shows are still avail­able; you just have to know where to look.

Boomerang is a network ded­i­cated to fa­vorites like Scooby-Doo, Tom and Jerry, Looney Tunes, Pop­eye, The Smurfs, Huck­le­berry Hound, and dozens more, which are now avail­able to stream in a vir­tu­ally end­less buf­fet from your Ap­ple TV. There are more than 1,000 episodes to whet your ap­petite, with new ones added each week, plus movies fea­tur­ing many of the same char­ac­ters.

As you might ex­pect, mak­ing qual­ity car­toons avail­able to the masses doesn’t come cheap – you’ll have to pay $4.99 per month (or $39.99 an­nu­ally) for a sub­scrip­tion once the seven-day trial is up. It all streams on-de­mand and ad-free, with a sin­gle sub that also works on iPhone or iPad.

Even these ver­sions look a lit­tle too mod­ern for our tastes... and don’t get us started on that con­sarned Scrappy-Doo. Now get off our lawn.
