Collider Kids: Celebrate Mother’s Day with Boomerang and Cartoon Classics

     May 13, 2018


Here at Collider, we cover a lot of stuff, be it Star Wars, superheroes, or cinephile fare, and everything from movies and TV, to video games and web series. There’s something for everyone. But there’s so much stuff out there that sometimes our younger audience members get left out. So every once in a while, we’d like to shine a spotlight on some family-friendly content that parents and caregivers can confidently watch with the little ones.

In today’s Collider Kids segment, we’d like to wish you a Happy Mother’s Day! Just in case you don’t have any plans to spend with your family yet, we have a suggestion: Gather round the TV like the good ol’ days (or the mobile screen of your choice in these good new days) and fire up Boomerang, the streaming service that offers up some a catalog of cartoon classics. In honor of Mother’s Day, holiday-themed episodes of The FlintstonesThe JetsonsWacky Races and more arrived on Boomerang for your viewing pleasure.

Here’s just a sampling of what’s waiting for you over at Boomerang’s Mother’s Day Playlist:
