The second press release (PDF) confirmed that The Hub would re-air the original "Generation 1" cartoon series that started it all. Other additions include G.I. Joe: A real American Hero, Doogie Howser, M.D., and The Wonder Years (sweet, loved this show growing up). No details on air times were provided for the shows. Thanks to Rodsuper for the links.


  1. i might actually watch this channel. its sounding pretty sweet

  2. my tv will be on this channel 24/7
    not only because of those shows, but because of deltora quest


    These are some pretty sweet close ups of a stunt on TF3.

  4. markie post. holy shit. she was hot. probably still is for a cougar. I bet only the generation 1 fans would even remember her on night court.

  5. SWEET!!!! Markie Post and GINA TORRES - YES!!!! Gina Torres was great as a voice on a recent episode of the Boondocks, was great on Firefly and Cleopatra 2029, great as Chris Rock's wife in "I Think I Love My Wife" (and so was Keri Washington, too), and she is the Wife of one of my favorite voice-owners/actors, LAURENCE FISHBURNE. Markie Post (I agree WHOLEHEARTEDLY with Anonymous at 8/6/10, LOL!!!!) - yes, I concur, and I too remember Night Court fondly. I'd also think that Laurence Fishburne along with David Keith, James Earl Jones, Jeff Bridges, Edward James Olmos, Patrick Stewart, Bruce Boxleitner, Susan Blu, David Warner, James Avery, Judd Nelson, Dan Gilvezan, and the guy who sounded dead on Robert Stack in Transformers:Animated would also make GREAT additions to any Transformers voice part.

  6. According to Keaton's IMDB page it says he will voice Bumblebee in the Prime series.
