There was no better feeling than getting up bright and early on Saturday morning, grabbing a bowl of cereal and sitting down to watch your favorite cartoons. Things are certainly different these days and kids can watch any show they want practically anytime but those classic cartoons still evoke a certain sense of nostalgia. MeTV is now launching a new channel called MeTV Toons that will satisfy that craving for nostalgia as it features shows such as Looney Tunes, Scooby-Doo and Tom & Jerry.

The new channel will launch on Tuesday, June 25, 2024, just in time for summer vacations. The broadcast will be ad-supported and feature all of the Warner Bros. Discovery cartoons that you grew up with. More of the characters you can watch include The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Yogi Bear, Popeye, Rocky and Bullwinkle, Woody Woodpecker, Casper, Betty Boop, Speed Racer and others.

Animation historian Jerry Beck, who is in collaboration with the channel, added, “There’s a lot planned, more than you even see right now – Not only the classic cartoons, the classic characters, but shows and series and shorts that haven’t been seen in 25, 30, 40, 50 years are going to make their re-debut on this channel. For people like me, cartoonaholics, this will blow your mind!”
