Hasbro Signs Your Favorite 80s Cartoons Over to Netflix Instant

Hasbro on Netflix

You know, we remember waking up at the crack of 7 a.m. to see cartoons. And forget about watching them again; you’d have to wait for crappy VHS if you hadn’t taped them…ON crappy VHS.  Kids today just don’t know how good Hasbro has just made it for them.

According to the latest from BusinessWire, Hasbro has inked a multi-year deal with emerging TV conglomerate Netflix to host not, one, but ten of its series on Netflix’s instant service.  As of now Netflix subscribers can stream complete seasons of ‘Transformers Prime,’ ‘My Little Pony,’ ‘Pound Puppies,’ ‘G.I. Joe: Renegades‘ and ‘The Adventures of Chuck & Friends.’  At a later point in 2012, ‘JEM & The Holograms,’ ‘Transformers: Generation 1,’ ‘G.I. Joe: Real American Heroes,’ ‘Transformers: Beast Wars’ and ‘Transformers: Rescue Bots’ will follow as well.

Says VP of Content Acquisition at Netflix Cindy Holland “We are very excited to be working with Hasbro Studios. This deal allows us to offer even more great kids’ programming to our members, both adults and kids alike, including new seasons of My Little Pony, Transformers Prime, and Pound Puppies after the season finale airs on The Hub.”

Hasbro Studios president Stephen Davis concurred, adding “We are pleased that consumers will now be able to watch our award-winning programming on Netflix, the leading internet subscription service/ We are making our content easy to access, anytime, anywhere and on all platforms where audiences are consuming content and this is a big step forward with our all screen strategy.”

All of the Hasbro content will be available on Netflix streaming the “Just For Kids” section, which collects TV and movies aimed at children 12 and under.

Many of these shows are actually good enough to check out on their own, but do you like all the new Hasbro content moving to Netflix?  Might this be another bid in Netflix’s inevitable plot for world domination?  Almost certainly so!  And away we go!  Of course, you may leave your own reactions in the comments below.
