    OK, guys. Let me briefly introduce my background. I live in Australia.......

    It's been quite a long time since Transformers Animated aired there. I just want to ask a question..........

    How come TFP has never aired on Australian TV? Just wondering........ Is it got something to do with budget?

    Note: Cartoon Network does not apply to this...........Also Internet doesn't give the proper answer.........

    Why does Cartoon Network not apply? It is airing in Australia so I don't understand the question.

    Cartoon Network is an international channel company. I'm talking about local domestic channels like ABC 3, Toasted TV. etc.

    My sources told me that a few kangaroos and possums attack a The Hub employee that was carrying the tapes to ABC 3 's staff and they ended up eating the episodes.

    Yep.

    This is a joke right? I also doubt that there was a koala along with them........

    I'm confused by this. :confused:

    Simple, none of those channels bought the rights for TFP distribution in Australia

    You can't be certain with those mood bouncing Boxing Kangaroos. But if it is, while I doubt a Koala was involved, it is likely their close cousins, the Drop Bares, were involved.

    Probably hasn't aired because nobody in Australia wants to air it for the terms that Hasbro has set.

    Probably for the same reason Power Rangers did not run in Australia for several years and why many shows are edited to hell when they do air.


    The Australian Television council said "NO!".

    Why is there "attack" and not "attacked"?

    electronic456, I cannot be sure, but might be you can contact these channels and ask them on your own. Many channels have their websites, which have their sections for you to ask about something or suggest bringing something.
