During the great Cybertronian War, the Autobots and the Decepticons crash landed on Earth.

Megatron actually does not transform into his gun mode very often. Instead, he stays as a robot and uses arm mounted fusion cannon. The series placed greater importance on Megatron's motives to attain absolute power. See more »
Animation errors can be found in each and every episode, and some of these are quite noticeable. Characters are colored differently from shot to shot at times, robots that should be dead appear randomly, and sometimes, you can see the same character twice in the same shot. Another issue is the misplacing of animation cels, which resulted in characters appearing to be small/gigantic, and in some instances, full limbs and other body parts are missing. See more »

In Germany, the series was first shown in 1989, and of the 98 episodes, only 39 were released: all of seasons 3 and 4, and a handful of episodes from the first two seasons. These were misleadingly shown out of order, giving the illusion that seasons 1 and 2 happened after Optimus Prime's return at the end of season 3 and 4. Voice actors also alternated between episodes. The dubbing studio claimed that all 98 episodes were dubbed into German, but the missing 59 episodes have never been broadcast anywhere and their German dubs are presumed lost. Later in 1994, the Generation 2 re-edit also saw a German release, consisting of the first 26 episodes. The Transformers: The Movie was dubbed into German as a sort of "pilot series" for the Generation 2 episodes, hence why it did not use the voice actors from the original '89 German dubbing.

STAR RATING:*****Unmissable****Very Good***Okay**You Could Go Out For A Meal Instead*Avoid At All Costs
Golly gosh,is Transformers really nearly 20 years old?This timeless celebration of colourful good machines versus bad machines is a piece of genius.I was channelsurfing today,and saw this on one of the channels.It was an episode I remember called The Revenge Of Bruticus.That holds your attention as well now as it did when you were a young kid.In fact,strangely enough,it almost seems better caught up in the pretentiousness of adult life.I would be very happy if they made a big hollywood blockbuster movie adaptation of the series,even though this would contradict my movie laws no end.Maybe the heartless marketing moguls at hollywood should leave this old classic alone,and let it stand the test of time in it's current posistion.*****
