    ...that's a pretty big step for Hasbro. Hopefully it's a complete success and we see more of their better brands get high quality series based off of them.

    That's pretty interesting and yes that might explain why we didn't hear anything about a season 4 for Animated. Sounds pretty cool because if it's Hasbro TV then maybe Transformers can get one of the prime time slots instead of the way Cartoon Network does the show.

    better be "free" or I'll stick with my torrents. I hate paying out the ass for cable when I can get 7 channels free with my converter box.

    Isn't Animated a joint venture through Cartoon Network Studios? If it is, this would probably mean the end of Animated. I dunno that Cartoon Network would be okay producing a show for another network...

    This does sound like a good idea, though I do hope that they re-air G1 and Beast Wars. G4 did a shitty job with it in their former "ACTION BLAST!" block.

    Eh. Shouldn't matter, I don't guess. Scrubs hopped networks altogether, and that was on the verge of cancellation, too. I see one of two things happening: 1. CN sees that somebody's going to pick it up, so they continue the show themselves. 2. They do like NBC with Scrubs and don't care if it gets passed on to another network because they're finished with it.

    I just hope I can get this thing! I still can't get Boomerang. :(

    If its true, I think they would have to make a brand new Transformers show, Seen as Animated is made by Cartoon Network, I don't see them making a season 4 for another network unless it aired on Cartoon Network as well. The article mentions that development for new shows will be starting soon.

    It might mean multiple Transformers cartoons, including the more 'mature' one that was alluded to when GiJoe Resolute was revealed.

    This could turn out to be a very astute move for Hasbro.

    A TV show based on Scrabble? That's just ridiculous!
    YouTube - Scrabble: Hosted by Chuck Woolery mid 1980s episode Nancy vs. Jon 1/2

    At least they're not making a Scrabble cartoon though:
    The Adventures of the Scrabble People in a Pumpkin Full of Nonsense (1985) (TV)

    Or toys:
    In The 80s - Toys of the Eighties, Scrabble People

    Oh how I miss the guns. Axe's and good ole' fists are nice, but nothing is more awesome than a giant transforming robot with a machine gun!

    But I think the mom's of the World would be against it because it is too violent. You can have robots hacking each other to pieces, but once guns come into play, "no thank you!"

    A Hasbro channel makes me all kinds of happy! :D 

    Though if they produce shows that are made by the same companies it could open the doors to a whole new world of crossovers, only this time, on television!!! I look forward to "Transformers: Resolute" meets "My Little Pony: Resolute."
