The Flintstones comes to Boomerang

Thanks a lot you jagoff, whiny chord cutters. This is the future of television, everything ala carte and being nickel and dimed to death. With that rant out of the way I will same Boomerrang is fairly priced. At $39.99 you can have WB’s a large library of Warner Brother’s classic cartoons. However as someone who purchased The Flintstones and The Looney Tunes Sets when they were $50 for each collection/season. This is a solid deal. The thing WB hasn’t made clear is if the animated shorts are the crappy cut versions, or the full orginals. The service is still new and missing key things like the Superfriends.  There’s a 30 day free trial available.
