It was announced today that toy maker Hasbro has signed a multi-year deal with Netflix to stream all of it’s huge 80’s hits such as Transformers and G.I. Joe. The monetary value of the deal was not immediately available, but a bunch of shows are available right now!

Transformers Prime, My Little Pony, Pound Puppies, G.I. Joe: Renegades and The Adventures of Chuck & Friends are now available to instantly watch on Netflix. JEM & The Holograms, Transformers: Generation 1, G.I. Joe: Real American Heroes, Transformers: Beast Wars and Transformers: Rescue Bots will follow later in 2012.

“We are pleased that consumers will now be able to watch our award-winning programming on Netflix, the leading internet subscription service,” Hasbro Studios President Stephen Davis said. “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.”

    I love watching all the 80’s cartoons. Every time they are on I find myself sitting down and watching them, especially Jem. I don’t need Netflix to watch these shows since I have the Blockbuster@Home service through DISH. A co-worker at DISH told me to try it out because it is only $10 a month, and I absolutely love it! I have plenty of family movies and cartoons available on their streaming service and I get new releases by mail 28 days before Netflix. I think that is awesome that Netflix is adding all these cartoons for their customers, but I am happy with my services I already have.
