Challenge of The Gobots
28 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

Growing up I love Transformers, everything about Transformers just hold my attention.

Only a few times that I got to see Challenge Of The Gobots now I am a huge fan of Hanna Barbera cartoons and they have created some of the most memorable series ever like "Yogi Bear" and "Scooby-Doo" Gobots came out as the main challenger to the popular Transformers.

Now this is not going to be a "Transformers is better" or "Gobots is better" review it just my thoughts on the series in general.

Challenge Of The GoBots did have some interesting ideas and characters in their own right they had some good episodes of the series as well.

The two factions at war were the Good Gobots known as the Guardians lea by Leader-One, some of The Guardians members are Turbo, Scooter, Small Foot, Path Finder, Van Guard, Road Ranger,Flip Top,Rest-Q, Heat Seeker and others. They were the protagonists of the series.

The Evil Gobots known as Renegades lead by Cy-Kill, some of the Renegades are Crasher, Cop-Tur, Fitor, Loco,Fly Trap, Bad Boy, Pincher, BuggyMan, Geeper-Creeper, Vamp and others.

The human characters: Matt Hunter, Nick Burns, Allison Janmoria "A.J." Foster, General Newcastle help the Guardians. Master Renegade help the Renegades.

Challenge of the Gobots feature some good stories for the series and some of the most interesting episodes of any TV show.

The Voice acting is pretty good with the talents of Lou Richards, Frank Welker, Peter Cullen,Brock Peters,Arthur Burghardt,Marilyn Lighstone, B.J.Ward, Kelly, Ward and others each one give the Characters some interesting voice effects and that's not something easy.

And the animation of the show is pretty good as well and smooth animation.

Yes Challenge of The Gobots was a challenger to The Transformers but The Gobots did have something going for it so if you are a fan of robots then check out Challenge Of The Gobots you might be surprise
