Thus, although their transformations are wholly unfeasible in most cases, the characters in the show ended up looking far more clean and workable than the toys would have been. See more »

Beast Wars updated the classic 80s cartoon series and made it CGI. Beast Wars was filled with great stories, an interesting plot that connected it to the 80s cartoon, superb characters and so much more. Also the voices were very good and the characters were so diverse, that contributed to it's greatness.
