    First of all I apologize if this is not news. I did search through over 12 pages of posts in both this and the GD and did not see anything listed. Now, I know that it has been speculated and assumed that the HUB would air the old G1 stuff but this was the first time I saw it in an official press release.

    Here is the quote from the article and I will put a link to the whole article after that (which has a link in it to the press release)

    Vintage flashbacks
    "The Hub will exclusively re-air old episodes of the Jim Henson Company's "Fraggle Rock," and is also planning a late-night block of old "G.I. Joe" and "Transformers" episodes to attract parents and young adult males nostalgic for the '80s-era cartoons. Also getting a makeover is "Strawberry Shortcake," the American Greetings character that started a popular line of dolls in the late '80s."

    I saw that post but since it was admitted by a user to be completely fake/fantasy schedule I still thought my post was newsworthy since it was coming straight from hasbro/hub people, which I had not seen yet.

    Agreed, that was the thing that interested me most about it, that it was actually a comfirmation of sorts.

    (plus i hadnt heard about fraggle rock and pound puppies airing on the HUB before this)

    HAHA Too funny. Yeah the fraggle rock is just an added bonus. I am a bit curious to see what they will do with Pound Puppies, My Little Pony and Strawberry Shortcake even if I won't ever really watch them past 1 episode
