Hubworld is Go!

So, on Monday The Hub's site officially opened...kind of.  While going to the main page still shows the preview site, clicking the headlines takes you to a Page Not Found page on the actual site, where you can read show descriptions, watch videos, and play games.  Strangely, the character page for Berry Bitty Adventures leaves out Raspberry Torte and Plum Pudding.  Most of the games are crossovers from Hasbro's site, but there's a very fun Adventures in Ponyville game that showcases the upcoming animation style.  (It'll be more fun once you can actually save your progress.)
Speaking of My Little Pony, Hasbro updated its page on Monday as well, so that it's all G4, all the time.  The main attraction of this update, IMO, is the new opening theme, which is very catchy, and gives us our first look (listen?) at the voice actors for the main ponies.  A press release from Discovery's site already revealed the VAs:
Tara Strong as Twilight Sparkle (which we already knew)
Ashleigh Ball as Applejack and Rainbow Dash
Tabitha St. Germain as Rarity
Andrea Libman as Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie
Cathy Weseluck as Spike
There was a press release on the same site for Pound Puppies, which doesn't seem to have too much in common with its predecessors (Pound Puppies without Cooler is hardly Pound Puppies at all!), but earns points for having John Di Maggio as one of the dogs.
And while I'm talking about Hub news, faithful reader Max Jordan sent me an e-mail with the first day's (and the next day) schedule, which the Hub is calling Sneak Peek Sunday.  Despite the sneak peek starting at 10, the channel will apparently officially open at 6:00 am EST, as per the link sent by Max.
