    Really diggin the Hub. Reruns of oldschool Transformers (G1) aka the "REAL" TF, G.I. Joe, Batman, Superman, Animaniacs, and New shows like My little Pony Friendship, The Hub is more Cartoon Network than the Cartoon Network itself.

    Hub is pretty much what CN was ten years ago. I first became aware of them when they were playing a lot of 80s shows. Now Hub is playing a lot of 90s toons (and 80s, let's not forget them).

    I miss having The Hub and getting my Batman and G.I. Joe Renegade fix, and miss the channel even more knowing they're airing Superman and Animaniacs now.

    That said, I'm plenty happy spending my afternoons watching Adventure Time and Regular Show(yeahyuhhhh!).

    They still need more 80's cartoons and sitcoms, ALF was the best they could get?

    The Hub is great, but like Boomerang they don't play enough older stuff.

    I don't get the Hub, so there's only one show of theirs I follow via YouTube. It's some delightful romp about miniature equines.

    I didn't even realize this channel existed until I saw a three hour block of it dedicated to animaniacs. Now I'm so glad I found it! Someone please tell me Freakazoid! airs at least every now and then

    I solely use it to watch Batman, Batman Beyond, and Superman...for the most part. Aquabats is pretty funny--it's by that Chapman guy who makes Homestar Runner/Strong Bad stuff and has that same sense of weird humor. It's also supposed to replicate the weird surrealism of old '70s live-action sci-fi kids shows and does a good job of it--think Batman '66 mixed with Flash Gordon and you have an inkling of what is going on there.

    Animaniacs is a welcome addition to their line-up.

    Frankly they have a better line-up than Boomerang of the older shows, especially since Boomerang dropped Justice League and so forth. However, to say it's superior to CN is debatable--CN has Young Justice going for it, after all. I'd say they have rapidly reached equal footing with CN, Disney, Nickelodeon, etc., though, something that should not have been so easy for a new channel and yet they have done it with seeming ease due to the strength of the new Trasnformers, GI Joe, My Little Pony, etc. shows.

    No, no Freakazoids, I'm afraid. Which only goes to prove my earlier point (not enough older stuff).

    I wasn't a regular viewer of Animaniacs back in their original run but watching them now I can see how it's maintained a cult following because a few of the double entendres found in the humor. Especially like the episode with that faux Jerry Lewis' sudden outbursts of "Oh lady!"

    I agree .At one point they were airing Jem and the Holograms. I would like to see The Real Ghostbusters, Inhumanoids, Captain N the Gamemaster, and the Toxic Crusaders at some point.

    Superman TAS, Batman TAS, Batman Beyond, Lois & Clark, Animaniacs, My Little Brony, yeah the Hub is pretty sick. All they need is Justice League. But still, I wouldn't call them the real CN. I like Adventure Time and Regular Show enough not to mention they brought back Toonami.

    I agree. They should get He-Man, M.A.S.K., Thundercats, & Bionic Six. As for sitcoms, they should get Mr. Belvedere & Family Ties.

    For awhile back they were showing Family Ties daily but now it's just late night on Sundays.

    And I never liked Family Ties, the humor is just punchlines the only reason it lasted long as it did was it was riding the coattails of The Cosby Show.
