Transformers Prime Cast Officially Announced, G1 Episodes to Air on The Hub

By bwbm on Friday, August 06, 2010



Hasbro Studios was at the Television Critics Association (mostly TCA for short) this morning and they discussed what to expect when The Hub, a cable network between Hasbro Studios and Discovery Communications, launches on October 10, 2010.

Two press releases coincided with the appearance, one that announced the cast of the upcoming Transformers: Prime cartoon, a CGI-based show, and the other announcing that the original Generation 1 cartoon Transformers would also air on The Hub.

The following is the Transformers: Prime cast announced in the press release (PDF); however, characters other than Mr. Cullen and Mr. Welker are still unofficial at this point.
  • Peter Cullen ("Transformers" Trilogy – Optimus Prime)
  • Frank Welker ("Transformers" Trilogy - Megatron)
  • Gina Torres ("MadTV")
  • James Remar ("Dexter"; misspelled as "Remer" in press release)
  • Josh Keaton ("Justice League: Circle of Two Earths")
  • Kevin Michael Richardson ("The Batman")
  • Markie Post ("The Fall Guy")

  • A separate press release (PDF again) announces that the original Generation 1 Transformers cartoon would also be airing on The Hub. Additional shows acquired include GI Joe: A Real American Hero, Doogie Howser, M.D., and The Wonder Years.

    It is unknown when these shows will air on the network, but there is a great possibility new episodes of Transformers: Prime will air in the "Kids Afternoon/Kids Prime" block that takes place from 1 PM to 6 PM.

    I wonder who came up with the name "Transformers: Prime". It should be called "Bayformers: Animated"

    Finally! A "voice" of reason! Heh heh, get it? 'Cause we're talking about voice acting. It's funnier when you explain it. Anyways, thanks for taking the time to post the list Onslaught! It feels more right than the previous one.

    I'd suggest reading the messages posted previous to mine. If that doesn't alleviate your confusion then nothing will.

    More Prime Beast Hunters News
    In what appears to be last minute deal, Tranformers and other Hasbro shows will be staying on with Netfilx. As we reported previously, Hasbro and Netflix were to go their own way last month when a new deal fell through. However, without disclosing the terms of the detail. USA Today reports Netflix let be known that Hasbro Studios shows aren't going anywhere. Good news for Netflix customers who need their Transformers fix.
    Adweek has posted an article about Hasbro's TV strategies that goes into of detail about The Hub - and what went wrong. The short version is that Discovery was admirably hands-off with the network, leaving Hasbro almost solely in charge of programming... and a combination of slow profits, the proliferation of on-demand viewing, and the departure of President & CEO Margaret Loesch led Hasbro get out of the network-running business. Keep reading for more details on all that and a link to the full article where you can see My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic described as "creepily beloved"!
    While we'd previously heard a cutoff date of January 1st for G1 and other Hasbro shows, The Wrap reports that Hasbro and Netflix have been unable to come to terms - a situation more or less confirmed by a Tweet from @HasbroNews. So if you really want to catch up on Transformers Prime, Pound Puppies, or My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, you'd best get to watching now. Keep reading for more details!
    Variety reports that the Hub will, as previously rumored, become the Discovery Family Channel on October 13th. Discovery will be taking a majority share in the network, but Hasbro will retain a daytime block of programming for its shows such as Transformers Rescue Bots, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, and presumably the upcoming Transformers Robots In Disguise. Keep reading for more details!
    Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun reports that Polygon Pictures has walked away from the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards with four awards, two for Transformers Prime Beast Hunters. The other two were for Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and between the two series Polygon has taken the Outstanding Special Class Animated Program award for the past three years running. We'll see if Robots In Disguise 2015 will help them maintain their lock on the category, but for now keep reading for an excerpt from the article and a link to full details!
