"My Little Pony" and "Pound Puppies" are beating a path to Netflix.
Hasbro Studios has inked a streaming pact with the Netcaster for 10 kidvid skeins, including "G.I. Joe: Renegades" and "Transformers Prime."
Netflix has been beefing up the Just for Kids section of its service in an effort to cast a wide net for subscribers. More "Transformers" and "G.I. Joe" series will bow on the service later in the year.
"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," said Hasbro Studios prexy Stephen Davis.
