Starting tonight, The Hub is celebrating the DOG DAYS OF SUMMER with a week-long celebration of all things canine. They'll be running dog-themed movies each weeknight, then cap off the week with a POUND PUPPIES MARATHON. Additionally, TRANSFORMERS PRIME returns this Friday. Check out full details and previews below!
Have you been checking out KAIJUDO: RISE OF THE DUEL MASTERS on The Hub? If not, check out my review of the series premiere right here, then get caught up on Saturday nights at 8pm ET/PT on The Hub. Now, the fine folks at The Hub have hooked up The Rock Father with about 10 KAIJUDO headbands, so I'm giving some of them away to YOU. My little one LOVES hers, to the point where separating the two is nearly impossible after an afternoon of play. Would you like one of these? If so, enter via the Rafflecopter widget below.
The Hub's MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC has a hardcore male fanbase, that much is certain. My daughter loves it, but I still just can't get into it. I watch it with her, but me? I'm digging that new CARE BEARS series more than the Ponies, but I'm not gonna get all hardcore about it. You know who is hardcore though? ANDREW W.K. In fact, he's so into the Ponies that he's doing a motivational speech at CANTERLOT GARDENS, a full-blown MY LITTLE PONY convention. Check out the press release that just landed here at Rock Father HQ today...
As someone that has never been able to get into and enjoy any of the countless Trading Card Games that have been released over the past few decades, I was a bit skeptical when The Hub asked me to check out their new series, KAIJUDO: RISE OF THE DUEL MASTERS, a loose ''re-imagination'' of the long-running DUEL MASTERS card game by Wizards of the Coast. After a mysterious package arrived here at Rock Father HQ earlier this week, my daughter and I sat down to immerse ourselves in the world of KAIJUDO via the first two episodes.
One June 2, The Hub will present the first episode of CARE BEARS: WELCOME TO CARE-A-LOT, the latest in a string of reimaginings of iconic 80s franchises to land on the Hasbro-owned cable net. With POUND PUPPIES, STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE, GI JOE, and TRANSFORMERS all enjoying decent success alongside the breakout cult favorite, MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC, could the CARE BEARS be the next big hit? The Rock Father and daughter were invited to take an early look at the pilot episode, so it's time to share some thoughts.
The Hub released a new preview for their upcoming CARE BEARS: WELCOME TO CARE-A-LOT this week, and it serves to solidify something that I've already noted on The Rock Father: Our family is really looking forward to the new show. Who's not excited? It seems that some followers of MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC are not down with the 'Bears.
