February marks the Transformers’ triumphant return to The Hub, starting with the world premiere of the new animated series Transformers Rescue Bots, in which the franchise is reimagined in order to target preschoolers, as slightly cuter versions of the Autobots teach children all there is to know about safety.
The Hub also picked February as the month to launch the 2nd season of the CG-animated Transformers Prime, as well as the network debut of Transformers: The Animated Movie, (originally released in 1986 and was considered a milestone as it features the death of a major character) as part of the network’s Transformers Mega Saturday on February 18,2012.
Transformers Rescue Bots with back-to-back episodes at 11:30a and 12n, and will debut of the second season of Transformers Prime with the first episode of a three-part story at 8:30p. Both animated series are produced by Hasbro Studios. The network will then air Transformers: The Animated Movie at 9p
