Transformers: Rescue Bots Academy is set to premiere on January 5th on Discovery Family to get those preschool viewers into the Transformers franchise. In this series Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and Grimlock are going to help a new team of bots that will train as first responders. The robots Hot Shot, Hoist, Whirl, Wedge and Medix will come from Cybertron to enroll in the Rescue Bots Academy and the Rescue Bots Academy instructors Heatwave the Fire-Bot, Chase the Police-Bot, Blades the Copter-Bot, and Boulder the Construction-Bot will take on the new recruits. Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and Grimlock help encourage the recruits as they start their training. In the first episode call “Recruits” we find that Hot Shot does not know how hard it can be to be a hero, but he will get to understand that working together can make it easier.
These Transformers: Rescue Bots Academy episodes will help teach teamwork and friendship along with how to be a hero. This is a great way to get young children interested in the Transformers and we always love to see some of the G1 characters.
