Producing a foreign brand for western consumption can be hard, so Hasbro has taken a unique route to exporting China’s #1 yo-yo line Blazing Teens. Rather than adapting one of the franchise’s various animated series, or pulling a Power Rangers with its live action incarnations, the toy giant has decided to forge ahead with a new cartoon.

Created in association with franchise originator Guangdong Alpha Animation, Blazing Team tells the tale of a group of normal teens that discover they’re not so normal thanks to Master Lao Shi. Through his help, the group must battle the growing evil within their city and become Yo Kwon Do master. The series blends martial arts and the skills of yo-yoing for comedic action adventure. Blazing Team is currently scheduled to run for 52 episodes.

The show will premiere on Friday, November 13 at 6:30 a.m. and 7 a.m. on Discovery Family Channel (formerly The Hub) in the US before international expansion in 2016. Hasbro will naturally produce a line of yo-yos based on the series starting in March.

Littlest Pet Shop fans are in for a treat this month as their favorite series will be returning for a third season on May 31, at 9:30 am ET/6:30 am PT via The Hub Network. Blythe and her little cute (and furry!) friends will be returning in full force, with Julie McNally Cahill, Tim Cahill, Kirsten Newland and Stephen Davis serving as executive producers of the series. The Littlest Pet Shop is still produced by Hasbro Studios.

The third season of The Littlest Pet Shop will kick off with the episode “Sleeper,” which follows Vinnie and Sunil as they are challenged by Russell to entertain Mr. VonFuzzlebut, who is a jovial raccoon and a new day camper. Unfortunately, Mr. VonFuzzlebut falls into a deep sleep, confusing the pets.

The series features key voice talent, including Ashleigh Ball, Tabitha St. Germain, Nicole Oliver and Peter New, who also portray characters in the Hub Network’s “My Little Pony Friendship is Magic.” Composer Daniel Ingram, a Daytime Emmy® Award nominee for “My Little Pony Friendship is Magic,” also creates music for “Littlest Pet Shop.”

· Tuesday, August 13, 8 p.m. ET: “Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed” – The lovable, easily frightened Scooby-Doo returns to the big-screen when Scooby and the Mystery Inc. sleuths confront an anonymous masked villain plotting to take over Coolsville.

The “Pound Puppies” marathon (Saturday, August 17, 6 a.m.–noon ET) will feature episodes of the pup-ular animated series and conclude with two all-new episodes, “The Watchdogs” and “Hail to the Chief.” In “The Watchdogs,” Strudel (Alanna Ubach) begins an exciting double life as Electronoggin, a nocturnal protector of helpless dogs, but her new night job threatens her crucial position on the Pound Puppies team. In “Hail to the Chief,” persnickety Agent Ping (Lauren Tom, “Futurama”) challenges Strudel to find the perfect home for rambunctious pup Chief (Justin Shenkarow, “Hey Arnold!”). Strudel eagerly accepts until she finds out that Chief’s perfect home is with the President’s daughters.

The Pound Puppies Marathon runs from 6 AM - Noon on Saturday, August 17, on The Hub Network.

The Hub Network Hosts Jem and the Holograms Marathon on Sunday

This coming Sunday, May 26, starting from 12:30 pm ET, the Hub Network will be hosting a truly outrageous Jem and the Holograms marathon consisting of five music-filled episodes designed to remind old fans and introduce new ones to all the glam, glitter, and excitement provided by the classic 80s cartoon.

The Hub Network’s Jem and the Holograms marathon will consist of the first five episodes of the series, such as “The Beginning,” “Disaster,” “Kimber’s Rebellion,” “Frame Up” and “Battle of the Bands.”

Jem and the Holograms was a collaboration between Hasbro, Marvel and Sunbow Productions. The show was created by Christy Marx and focuses on a girl named Jerrica Benton, who discovers a powerful computer called Synergy, which has the ability to transform her into the rockstar Jem. Together with her sister and friends, they form the mega popular band The Holograms.

He’s here.

Better yet, she is here.

SheZow is an animated series from Australia that has already aired several episodes internationally. It’s now found a home on the recently renamed Hub Network (from The Hub).

Our main character, one Guy Hamdon, is more into guy stuff, and the stronger the better. But he finds a ring from his aunt who has passed away. This, thinking its his uncles (as a sort of a keepsake) would give him powers.

Turns out it gives him powers all right. Its turns him into a female superhero. The aforementioned SheZow.

It was originally a plot done for college (not unlike J.G. Quintel’s plots for The Regular Show) and was being sold to certain Australian websites; but to no avail.

Both Kickstart Productions and DHX Media (the new owners of both Cookie Jar Entertainment and DiC) helped in the production of this show. But it isn’t without its issues. The most obvious one being the plot, which is that of a boy turning into a girl superhero.

Already somewhat of a star in certain LGBT circles, certain conservative groups will be watching to see if the show promotes the agenda, as it were. However, outside of how it was originally made, there isn’t too much to worry about the series. At worst, it’s tongue and cheek. At best, it could be the second major hit Hub Network will have after My Little Pony (which DHX Media also makes).

Is the show that controversial? I don’t see it – there will always be a “Brazilian strain” (Rule 34 of the Internet) in a majority of animated/semi-animated works. But that should not detract from the challenge the show faces (the same challenge Hasbro is facing with the Easy Bake Oven, which lets boys cook and bake pies as well as girls, and My Little Pony, whose toys sell well with the adult male fan base.) SheZow already turning the toy world upside down – is it an action figure or a doll? Can it sell? Does it encourage kids to treat everyone with respect?

Maybe that’s a better lesson than what majority of the “Government Toons” (The E/I Requirement) try to shove down everybody’s throats.

SheZow Premieres June 1 on HUB Network at 12:30 EST.

Wizards vs. Aliens Premieres on The Hub This June

As part of their drive to bolster their programming lineup, The Hub will be launching a brand new show from the UK titled “Wizards vs. Aliens” on June 1, Saturday, at 7 pm ET. The show is notable for being created by former Doctor Who showrunner Russel T. Davies and Phil Ford (who worked on the Doctor Who spin-off The Sarah Jane Adventures). The show is produced by BBC Cymru Wales and FremantleMedia Kids & Family Ent.

Wizards vs. Aliens focuses on a 16 year old boy named Tom Clarke, who reveals the secret of his status as a magic-wielding wizard to his best friend Benny. Together, the two friends use their skills and abilities to save the world from the alien Nekross, who have the ability to feed on magic.

It’s not all about new shows, though, as June 1 will also see the return of The Hub’s established show Pound Puppies, which will be returning with two new back-to-back episodes at 9 and 9:30 am ET.

The Hub continues its drive to bolster their programming lineup by launching a new animated action comedy series titled SheZow on June 1, Saturday. The show will be launched side by side with live action hit Wizards vs. Aliens, which is the newest offering from former Doctor Who showrunner Russell T. Davies.

Premiering on the 12:30 pm ET timeslot, SheZow is a 2D animated toon that focuses on a 12 year old boy named Guy Hamdon, who sees himself as the epitome of manliness, going so far as to coin his own catchphrase: It’s a GUY thing. Unfortunately for the young man, he discovers a magical ring that can transform its bearer into a very powerful superhero on the condition that it was meant to be worn by a girl. This means when he transforms, he dons a costume meant for a girl. Going by the nom de guerre SheZow, Guy Hamdon starts fighting crime with his bossy twin sister Kelly, and his sidekick Maz.

The half hour series was created and written by Obie Scott Wade. Lois Kramer Lunsford, Jason Netter, Gillian Carr, Huoi Seong Low, Brenda Wooding and Wade are all credited as executive producers. Production is done by Kickstart Prod. and Moody Street Kids with partners Film Victoria and Vision Animation and is distributed by DHX Media.

Transformers Prime Beast Hunters on The Hub

The Hub Network continues it’s third and final season of the Daytime Emmy® Award-winning CG-animated series “Transformers Prime Beast Hunters” from Hasbro Studios, this Friday, April 12, at 7:30 PM (ET).

In the newest episode, entitled “Rebellion”, we see that Team Prime has reunited under the leadership of UltraMagnus, and has waged war on the Decepticon Citadel. However, the fate of Optimus Prime is still in the balance, and the Autobots must decide how to face their newest enemy, the Predacon. The action is heavy in this episode with both sides having the advantage at different stages of the battle. But only one side can win. Who will it be? Tune in Friday at 7:30 PM (ET) on The Hub to find out.

Here’s a video preview:

To recap from the season-three premiere episode, the survival of Optimus Prime is in doubt after Megatron’s destruction of the Autobot base on Earth, while the separated members of Team Prime try to reconnect after being scattered to the wind to prevent detection.

The final 13 episodes will see Optimus Prime and his team face their greatest challenge yet in a new foe dedicated to the destruction of the Autobots — and potentially, planet Earth.

Transformers Prime Beast Hunters on The Hub

The Hub Network has made an interesting story arc with the return of the third and final season of the Daytime Emmy® Award-winning CG-animated series “Transformers Prime Beast Hunters” from Hasbro Studios, which premiered on Friday, March 22.

In the half-hour action series, the epic battle with the Decepticons rages on as Optimus Prime leads his team of Autobots and three human children in a mission to defend Earth and one day restore his home planet of Cybertron. But a brand new enemy emerges that could turn the tide of the war in Megatron’s favor. The epic saga’s return presents a formidable new opponent for the Autobots and the introduction of a third dragon-like faction called the Predacons.

In the season-three premiere episode, the survival of Optimus Prime is in doubt after Megatron’s destruction of the Autobot base on Earth, while the separated members of Team Prime try to reconnect after being scattered to the wind to prevent detection.

In the next episode, entitled PREY, airing on The Hub on Friday at 7:30 PM (ET), we see Smokescreen tending to the injured Optimus Prime, whose health is failing. In other places, the Prime team is separated, making attempts to “get the band back together” without the Decepticons detecting their whereabouts. As it turns out, thanks to Shockwave, Megatron has a new pet to unleash on the Autobots… a Predacon! We won’t spoil the episode for you, but we can tell you that the Autobots do battle with the Predacon, and who wins that battle is for you to find out. Also, while Smokescreen is on a mission to retrieve “The Forge”, we see how Optimus plans to use it.

The final 13 episodes will see Optimus Prime and his team face their greatest challenge yet in a new foe dedicated to the destruction of the Autobots — and potentially, planet Earth.

Starting Friday, April 19 (7:30 p.m. ET), the first four episodes of the new season will have special encore presentations that include “Autobits” — behind-the-scenes trivia with exclusive in-picture commentary designed to create an immersive viewing experience. Additional new episodes will resume in May.

On hubworld.com, an all-new show-page design for “Transformers Prime Beast Hunters” features exclusive images and video clips, as well as a countdown clock for the season three premiere. You can see more about Transformers Prime Beast Hunters at http://www.hubworld.com/tfprime.

Additionally, two brand new games launched on Friday, March 15 to support the new season. “Relic Hunter” features beloved character Arcee on a mission to Antarctica where she must navigate nine frozen trails to recover an ancient Ionian relic. “Pulsar Defense” features a battle between good and evil as the Autobots race to build up their defenses against the Decepticon’s ultimate weapon that threatens to destroy them all.

Finally, The Hub’s Facebook and Twitter (@HubTVNetwork) platforms will also provide sneak peeks and exclusive content from the new season and extend the viewing experience with additional activities to engage fans of all ages.

The Hub Original Series “Transformers Prime” was honored in 2012 with two Daytime Emmy® Awards, including Outstanding Special Class Animated Program. The wins bring to four the total number of Daytime Emmy® Awards the animated series has received since it premiered in November 2010.

“Transformers Prime Beast Hunters” is executive produced by Duane Capizzi (“The Batman,” “Superman: Doomsday”), Jeff Kline (“Jackie Chan Adventures,” “Men in Black: The Animated Series”), Alex Kurtzman, and Roberto Orci (Star Trek, Cowboys & Aliens, and Transformers feature films and TV’s “Fringe” and “Hawaii Five-O”). Peter Cullen, Frank Welker, Josh Keaton, Jeffrey Combs, Kevin Michael Richardson, Ernie Hudson, Gina Torres, John Noble, GeorgeTakei, Markie Post, and Steve Blum lend their voices to the series, which is produced by Hasbro Studios.

Later this year, fans can look for a 75-minute “Hub Original Family Movie,” titled “Predacons Rising,” which will also be available on DVD.

It is distributed by DHX Media, funded in part by Film Victoria and was designed by Australian artist Kyla May.

SheZow follows a 13 year old boy named Guy Hamdon, who happens upon a power ring owned by the superheroine SheZow, and puts it on. The ring gives him super powers, but it was only meant to be worn by a woman so it transforms Guy into a female superhero everytime he wears it. He then decides to take up the mantle of SheZow and starts fighting crime in her name.
