The Hub and Cartoon Network to be BFFs in 2011

The Hub has really come on strong since launching just two months ago. With a lineup that includes Transformers Prime, Twisted Whiskers, G.I. Joe Renegades, Atomic Betty, and so many more, folks at Turner Broadcasting (the people behind the Cartoon Network juggernaut) have already begun taking huge notice! Turner has since approached those at Hasbro Studios and Discovery (the people behind the Hub) about acquiring several toons to air across Cartoon Network in other countries. This includes Transformers Prime, The Adventures of Chuck and Friends, Pound Puppies, and My Little Pony. Starting in 2011, folks in Spain, Sweden, the UK, Norway, Denmark, and the Middle East can see these shows via Cartoon Network, Boomerang, and/or Cartoonito. Share the toon joy!

G.I. Joe: Renegades hits The Hub this October

G.I. Joe: Renegades hits The Hub this October

Hasbro Studios has big plans for the upcoming launch of their new network, The Hub. The channel, a joint project along with Discovery channel set to launch on October 10, 2010, will be a cartoon fan’s dream, with dozens of classic and new animated series. Of special note will be a revival of two of the more famous franchises; Transformers and GI Joe will be reborn as Transformers: Prime and G.I. Joe: Renegades. Branded as renegades for crimes they did not commit, a heroic group of young G.I.s is forced to “turn fugitive” as they battle to clear their names, and expose the evil that is Cobra Industries — a seemingly benevolent mega-corporation covertly controlled by a rogues gallery intent on creating a New World Order. The all-star voice cast will include a lineup of Charlie Adler, Lee Majors, Clancy Brown, Jason Marsden, Johnny Messner, and Kevin Michael Richardson, to name a few. Take a look at a teaser clip

Transformers: Prime brings Transformers Generation 1 to The Hub this October

Transformers: Prime brings Transformers Generation 1 to The Hub this October

The Transformers have been around for thousands of years, in their time. In our time, we’ve had about 30 or so. In either time frame, they’re awesome. With the two recent Transformer films doing so well in theaters, and the revival of classic toons sparking (pun!) everyone’s interest, Discovery and Hasbro decided they’d take advantage of this for their new network, The Hub, and launch an all new series, Transformers Prime. The CG toon is built in the world of generation one, when Optimus Prime did regular battle with Megatron. They’ve even gone so far as bringing back many of the original voice actors from the 1980s toon for the definitive cartoon, including: Peter Cullen, Frank Welker, Gina Torres, James Remer, Josh Keaton, Kevin Michael Richardson, and Markie Post. Take a look at a teaser trailer
