Hasbro Toy Company, based in Pawtucket, R.I., recently launched 'The Hub', a new cable tv network of children's programming. Since many of the shows are based on Hasbro products, it's essentially a very long toy commercial. But fans of G.I. Joe and Transformers, take heart, because there are new shows based on those 80's toys.
G.I. Joe Renegades & Transformers Prime premiered Thanksgiving weekend, and introduced us to new characters and storylines, while offering a new spin on the old ones. Joe is presented in standard 2D cartoon format, while Transformers is all CG.
You can check out these shows on their website:http://www.hubworld.com/
