Blades: I've seen pictures of aliens. They hug your face and lay eggs in your tummy!
Boulder: No! They're round blobs that swallow everything in their path. Including... vehicles!
Chase: That is incorrect. Aliens are cloaked hunters. But they can't see you if you're covered in mud.
Blades: Lets look for some mud!
[Blades starts frantically searching for mud on the ground]
Heatwave: Just to remind you, WE're aliens.

Transformers: Rescue Bots, Original take of Transformers
8 August 2015 | by TerryfanSee all my reviews

Transformers: Rescue Bots is targeted to a younger fan group of Transformers and to help introduce them to the Transformers but it does allow for the adult fans to watch it with their children.

The plot of the series centers around Four Autobots: Heatwave (Voiced by Steve Blum), Chase (Voiced by D.C. Douglas), Blades (Voiced by Parvesh Cheena) and Boulder (Voiced by Imari Williams) are given the mission by Optimus Prime (Voiced by Peter Cullen) to learn about Earth, about humans and serve and protected.

Along with their human allies Chief Charlie Burns (Voiced by Maurice LaMarche, and his family Cody Burns (Voiced by Elan Garfias, Dani Burns (Voiced by Lacey Chabert), Kade Burns (voiced by Jason Marsden) and Graham Burns (voiced by Shannon McKain)

The series also feature guest stars such as LeVar Burton, Jeff Bennett, Kath Soucie, Mark Hamill, Michael Bell,Katherine McNamara,Tim Curry, Stacy Darrow, Dee Bradley Baker, Jim Cummings, Roger Craig Smith

The stories for the show do work for both kids and adults with having both serious and humor but along with making the show work.

Also the creative written does present some funny one liners so the writers have done something right.

Voice acting is pretty talented as well and good we got Transformers Vets returning to work in The Transformers.

Animation is original and only the best way to give it a understanding is to watch it for yourself.

What I like best about the series is the theme song and intro it is very catchy and the lyrics work for the show there are times I replay the song over and over because I enjoy it that much.

If you're a fan give Transformers: Rescue Bots a try you might be surprised.
