Storyline

Boomer was a cute stray dog of mixed breeding who wandered around the country getting involved with people and their problems, including a deaf girl believed to be mentally disabled by her parents, a son neglected by his workaholic father, a private detective guarding valuable jewels, and a band of dognappers. Later in the series, Boomer was able to talk to the viewing audience, so we could know what Boomer was "feeling" at any given moment. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@soltec.net>

I loved this show!
25 February 2019 | by aeowen-03398See all my reviews

My memory was clogged for several years, but I remember watching a show as a kid about a dog who saved peoples lives from danger or served as a loving companion...was it Benji? No, but the dog looked the same...but wait...it was Boomer! How I finally remembered it was there was an episode of the show that starred the first celebrity crush in my preteen years, and that was Natasha Ryan. I was hoping to find that episode on YouTube, but couldn't.

Here's Boomer is a very light and cuddly warm series that was on NBC Sunday nights. If this were out on DVD, no doubt it would be classified as family friendly. There were no intense moments that required parental suoervision.. just pure family entertainment. . I would do anything in this world to see this series again, to relive my age of 11. It truly touched my heart.
