Turner’s SVOD Boomerang, a streaming iteration of its cartoon-centric cable network, is adding support for Android TV devices and a full Spanish-language experience for its users.

Both new features are dropping this Memorial Day weekend and the service is planning to add more device compatibility in the future.

This week, Boomerang is also turning on unified search results that will surface Boomerang content on searches across Roku, Amazon and Apple devices. The company said Google devices will soon be added to that mix.

The list of new features accompanies a handful of new and returning series announcements for the service.

New original series include “Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?” which brings back the original Scooby-Doo characters and pairs them with celebrities including NBA player Chris Paul, Mark Hamill, Sia, Bill Nye, Neil deGrasse Tyson and Steve Urkel (voiced by Jaleel White).

Boomerang’s other new original series is “Yabba-Dabba Dinosaurs,” which reboots the Flintstones and focuses on Pebbles Flintstone and Bamm-Bamm Rubble. Returning originals include “Be Cool Scooby-Doo!,” “Bunnicula,” “Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz,” “New Looney Tunes” and “The Tom and Jerry Show.”

Boomerang also acquired series “Wind in the Willows” from U.K. distributor HoHo Rights.

Boomerang originally launched in April 2017 with an animation library of more than 5,000 titles including the Hanna-Barbera, MGM and Looney Tunes franchises alongside original series. The service is available for $39.99 per year or $4.99 per month and comes with a seven-day free trial.
