Tooncast is a Latin American cable television channel owned by Turner Broadcasting System Latin America/Time Warner. Launched on December 1, 2008[1] in some countries of the region, it airs 24-hours of classic animation, both from Hanna-Barbera and Cartoon Network, and with no interruptions. When one show ends, the next one starts immediately.

The channels follow the line of the international versions of the channel Boomerang which all air classic series and shows. Old Cartoon Network promos also air on the channel, such as "Cartoons That Never Made It," Cartoon Network Groovies, and Boomerang Shorties. Unlike other channels of Turner Broadcasting System Latin America, like Cartoon Network, just a few cable television companies broadcast the channel in the region. The exception is Brazil, where the channel is available on most satellite television providers, such as Oi TV, Claro TV, GVT TV, Vivo TV, and Nossa TV. Since August 1, 2014, Tooncast commenced broadcast on NET, the biggest cable television company from Brazil. [2][3]

Even though Tooncast remained with a single pan-regional feed with audio channels in Spanish and Portuguese, on November 2012 the channel started using the Brazilian content rating system.
