TRANSFORMERS: Robots in Disguise Special Primetime Premiere Airs Saturday, March 14 on Cartoon Network


Bumblebee Takes the Spotlight in an All-New Animated Series from Hasbro Studios

Cartoon Network will unleash TRANSFORMERS: Robots in Disguise on Saturday, March 14 at 6 p.m. (ET/PT) with a special one-hour premiere event. The latest installment in the iconic franchise features an all new animation style, and builds upon the lore of the iconic Transformers franchise filled with great humor and lots of fun adventure for fans of all ages.

Transformers News: Press Release: TRANSFORMERS: Robots in Disguise Special Primetime Premiere Airs March 14th

The new series begins as Bumblebee must step up to be a leader in the years after we left the Autobots in Transformers Prime. Summoned by Optimus Prime to save Earth from a new Decepticon threat, Bumblebee puts his light-hearted mettle to the test after assembling a rogue team of young Autobot action heroes. Bumblebee must balance his job fighting off evil with being equal parts squad leader and coach to a rascally band that needs constant coaxing to learn how to work together. The results are comical when the cool rebel Sideswipe, elite guard cadet Strongarm, bombastic dinobot Grimlock and overly-excited mini-con Fixit must balance keeping the team together with chasing and capturing their new enemies in every episode packed full of action, fun and adventure.

Following the premiere event, new episodes can be seen every Saturday starting on March 21st at 6:30 a.m. ET/PT.

I don't understand why they moved it from the Hub/Discovery Kids. Seems like a really dumb move, to be blunt.

It's because Cartoon Network is more accessible to a wider amount of viewers. More kids watch CN than the Hub, so Hasbro Studios wanted the show on a channel that more kids (especially boys) watch. It's all due to exposure.

Doesn't a horrible timeslot mean they won't get that exposure?

According to the statistics this guy posted:
On the, honestly kinda depressing side, the average ratings for 6:30 am time slot on Cartoon Network is still 850,000 viewers.

Which is STILL better than The Hub's top new episode premiere ratings which averaged 650,000. CN's death timeslot is still better than The Hub's best was.

Well I'll be watching this on demand. For those of you looking forward to illegal streams I do hope you'll make some effort to watch the US episodes too.

I'm going to choose to ignore the sad fact this show is officially in for a sad, depressing death now, and ask what's really bothering me.
The Candy Land Movie is still actually happening?

That's just sad. I mean, this show was going to get screwed anyway, but it's like they're not even pretending to try.

Well, hopefully the one season it gets will be pretty good. Too bad I'll have to watch it on DVR because the timeslot conflicts with my schedule. >:oP

While we have seen multiple clips and videos for the upcoming Transformers: Robots in Disguise animated series, the YouTube channel Hasbro Studios Shorts has been busy uploading a whole bunch of them - some repeating previous material, some brand new - including a new trailer and a Behind the Scenes look at the cartoon, also featuring producers Jeff Kline, Adam Beechen, VP developer Michael Vogel, art directors David Hartman, Jose Lopez, voice actors Liam O'Brien, Constance Zimmer, Ted McGinley, Peter Cullen and director Vinton Heuck! You can check them out below, and head here for a full playlist; keep your eyes peeled in the Behind the Scenes clip for a glimpse of Windblade and other character designs!

Where's Windblade? This isn't going to be just another "female Transformer's name used on a Mini-Con" scenario, is it?

Wait wait, so they were able to get Peter Cullen to come in for the promo but NOT Will Friedle?!

Why would they show a character who's only recently just entered the rumor stage along with characters who have been established as real for months now?

Like, they didn't show Airachnid or Dreadwing in the first promos of Prime.

Around 0.46-0.52, bottom right corner. Looks like Windblade to me! :D

Also, she has been rumoured to be in the show, and Mairghread Scott is writing some episodes for the series, too. Speculation? Sure, but I think there is foundation to it.

Oh ho! That looks promising. I really hope that she is the same character as her IDW twin (as in the same slightly naïve personality). Also, she should be voiced by Tara Strong, just because. :lol:

Ugh, I hate grimlocks new voice. Why is peter cullun the ojly iconic voice they can bring back ? They should have brought back the grimlock guy, whatever his name was. Dinos need to sound slow, mean, and dumb. This grimlock sounds like a teenager on energy drinks.
