The Hub at Comic-Con

Beginning today at Comic-Con, checkout what The Hub has going on

Comic-Con is as nuts as any public event full of fans, costumes, panels and oh so much more but one station making some noise, the newer kid on the block, is The Hub who’s bringing a whole new generation of animation fans the joy of Transformers, G.I. Joe, Strawberry Shortcake, My Little Pony and more (Jem anyone?). Nobody can doubt Transformers is hot and Transformers Prime is the latest animated iteration that mergers the movie with G1 characters and even the recent animated shows and now fans can find out how it’s made. Also up is the 45th Anniversary of the Original Batman Series starring Adam West. While not animated this show is as campy and fun as in decades past so it fun to see this brought to light. Here is the official info, check it out if in San Diego and if not, well tune in folks.

“45th Anniversary of the Original Batman Series” (6:00 p.m., Room 23ABC) – Holy Comic-Con panel, Batman! The three stars of the iconic 1960s TV series “Batman” are coming to the San Diego Comic-Con for the very first time. Adam West (Batman), Burt Ward (Robin) and Julie Newmar (Catwoman) reunite to celebrate the 45th anniversary of the landmark television series presented on The Hub TV network Mondays-Thursdays at 11:30 p.m. ET. The cast will share memories from the show that made camp cool, as well as introduce and discuss their favorite scenes followed by an audience Q & A. When it premiered on ABC television in January 1966, Batman became something of a phenomenon. Rarely had a television series vaulted to the top of the ratings as quickly, or established an audience so broadly based and intensely loyal. Today the adventures of the Caped Crusader and the Boy Wonder are more popular than ever allowing new generations to discover the classic series.

Following a Q&A with the audience, panel attendees will have a chance to win tickets to the special Aquabats concert at the House of Blues on Saturday night. Produced by FremantleMedia Enterprises and The Magic Store, “The Aquabats Super Show!” will feature a hybrid of concert footage, live-action skits and animation, as The Aquabats battle evil with music and superhero powers unlike any seen before.
