Stretch Armstrong and The Flex Fighters Coming to Netflix

Oh man, when I was a kid, I would always go to my friend’s house and we’d play with the various toys he had but the one that always fascinated me was Stretch Armstrong.  It was just so cool. There was nothing else like him, at that time.  I wasn’t the only one to think that either.  Over the years, Stretch Armstrong has become something of a cult favorite to most adults.  

It’s not going to be just an adult favorite for much longer.

Hasbro is teaming up with Netflix to release a brand new Stretch Armstrong animated kids series called Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters!  

Here’s the official synopsis: 

The series, which will be Hasbro Studios first original programming for Netflix, is an all-new animated action/comedy series about an overscheduled teenager named Jake Armstrong and his two best friends. When the trio is accidentally exposed to an experimental chemical, they become STRETCH ARMSTRONG and the FLEX FIGHTERS, a team of unlikely stretchable superheroes who expand beyond the confines of their lives and embark on a series of adventures

Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters will be on Netflix in 2017.

Are you excited for the revival of Stretch Armstrong?  Is anyone else surprised his name is Jake?
