9 Story Distribution has sold its remastered animated series Garfield and Friends to Boomerang, the streamer co-owned by Warner Bros. and Turner. The first 30 episodes of the classic series will be available from November 1 on the platform.

Based on the iconic comic strip, Garfield and Friends originally ran from 1988 to 1995. It was acquired by 9 story in 2016, and has since been remastered and restored in 4K from the original film.

Boomerang launched in April 2017 and is currently only available in the US, with classic programming such as Scooby-Doo, Tom and Jerry and Looney Tunes. It has also rolled out several exclusive original series, including Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz and Wacky Racers; and Care Bears: Unlock the Magic is due to join the lineup soon.
