Boomer makes the scene
Boomer made his debut right at the tail end of 1979 with a one hour holiday special, "A Christmas For Boomer" which ran on NBC, December 6.

The series started in late August 1980 and ran for a couple of seasons. It returned in the mid-1980s for a re-run on The Disney Channel. I don't believe that any new shows were made for Disney, just the old NBC episodes shown again.

There were 24 episodes, spanning two years. Here's an episode guide being put together.
The New Benji?
Who can resist a handsome, shaggy mutt with a big smile on his face? Here's Boomer was television's answer to the 'Benji phenomenon.' Boomer was found wondering alone and homeless, along a California freeway.
In stunts on the show, Boomer was a little less agile, so he had a double named 'Boomer J' as a stand-in for some of the more difficult action shots. The two Boomers looked similar, but were different enough that Boomer J's scenes were shot from a greater distance.
Boomer's Girlfriend Cynthia
As Benji had Tiffany, Boomer's lady friend was Cynthia, similar in looks to Boomer. Their owner hoped they would have puppies and popularize the 'Boomer breed' in the USA.
