Tubi TV (app and website) has had the GI Joe and Transformer cartoons for awhile. It's actually a pretty cool app and has all kinds of cheesy 80's/90's sci-fi and horror flicks. With limited ads. I recommend it.

GI Joe, Transformers, etc were done under "Marvel Productions", which partnered with Sunbow to produce the various Hasbro cartoons in the 80's. A lot of the same production personnel, voice actors and background music were used in both "Marvel Productions" and "Sunbow". So Duke had the voice actor as 80's NBC animated Bruce Banner, etc. Sunbow was pretty much the Hasbro properties, partnered with "Marvel Productions".

I don't believe that "Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends" and "The Incredible Hulk" had the Sunbow branding on them, though. Just "Marvel Productions". Whereas the Hasbro shows usually had both brandings.

Marvel Productions also did RoboCop in the late 80's. But I imagine that's currently owned by whoever has the RoboCop license. Same for Fraggle Rock and others:

So yeah, to bring it back to Disney+... it makes sense that the Marvel/Sunbow/Hasbro shows would not be included, nor expected.
