Storyline

An animated series based on a line of toys called 'Go-Bots'. A race of intelligent robots is hiding on Earth, disguising themselves as ordinary cars and motorcycles. There are two factions: the good Go-Bots, called 'Guardians,' and the evil Go-bots, called 'Renegades.' Each episode features new attempts by the Renegades to seize control of Earth and the galaxy, and the Guardian's efforts to maintain peace. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

GREAT FUN
5 May 2002 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This cartoon was fun and so was the series that followed. It was one of those great 1980's cartoons.

There are obvious similarities with Transformers and I think that Transformers was a superior cartoon but this was fun too.

Both the good Gobots and bad Gobots were a lot more 'human' than the Transformers. Scooter was my favourite throughout the series. Also, in the interests of equality we had a few 'female' Gobots.

Like other 1980's cartoon heroes the good Gobots were truly moralistic whilst the bad Gobots were really wicked with no redeeming features at all.

Those who have watched Transformers might not enjoy this as much but it can be enjoyed if you're in the right mood.
