March is shaping-up to be a great month for TRANSFORMERS fans of the... smaller variety. On Saturday, March 1, TRANSFORMERS RESCUE BOTS will return to The Hub Network for it's second season, kicking off the action with two back-to-back new episodes at 1pm ET/10am PT. In “Road Trip”, a tricky transporter takes Cody for a crazy ride and Kade takes on a high-flying rescue mission. In “Sky Forest," Cody and Frankie find themselves going head to head in a town inventor contest, leading to a jealous divide between the two. To make matters worse, Frankie's contest entry gets out of control, not only threatening her friendship with Cody and the Bots, but the safety of the entire island. But the action doesn't stop there, as Shout! Factory Kids has announced TRANSFORMERS RESCUE BOTS: HEROES ON THE SCENE for a March 18 DVD release.

The folks at Disney Junior have just ordered more full seasons for three of their most popular shows. DOC McSTUFFINS and SOFIA THE FIRST have just received orders for a third season, while JAKE AND THE NEVER LAND PIRATES will return for a fourth. While all three are loved here at Rock Father HQ, it's DOC that's the runaway hit for us.
