In a distant corner of the universe, on the planet Cybertron, a war was fought between the heroic Autobots and the evil Decepticons, robots with the ability to transform themselves into vehicles and weapons. With supplies of energon running low, the Autobots launched a spacecraft to locate a new source of energy to continue the fight. They were attacked by the Decepticons, and ended up crashing on Earth. The ship was buried deep underground, and all aboard - Autobot and Decepticon - were deactivated in the crash. Four million years later, an eruption brings the ship to the surface. Automatic systems repair the robots, altering their transformation ability to mimic Earth machines. Now the war begins anew, with the Autobots defending Earth from the Decepticons, who seek to enslave humanity and drain the world of its energy. UPDATE: TRANSFORMERS IS AN AMERICAN SHOW, REDUBBED INTO JAPANESE. AFTER SEASON 3 IN AMERICA THE SHOW WAS CANCELED. JAPAN CONTINUED THE SHOW, BUT THE FIRST 3 SEASONS (UNLIKE MOST EVERYTHING ELSE) WERE MADE IN THE USA! (Another update: The above info was mostly correct except for where it was made. It was actually a US/Japan co-production. Yes its not simply an anime or an american show in fact in a way it was both. It was made by Hasbro/Marvel along with Takara and famed Japanese animation studio TOEI animation. This show was one fo the original efforts in the concept that is the US/Japan co-productions in animation.) Update: Actually its a little more complex than that. It was produced by Sunbow Productions, the same studio that did the GI Joe cartoons and The Tick cartoon . Sunbow used to outsource stuff to other larger copanies such as Toei, but thats relatively common in the animation world. Toei handled the Japanese dub of the original american series and worked on many of the susequent Japanese ones.

    I loved the Transformers, my mom would by me, My Little Ponies and I would be pissed. I begged and begged for Transformers and finally she gave in. Yea MOM! I got Optimus Prime, some constructo bots, a Deceptocon that turned into a space shuttle and train. I also got Perceptor, he changed into a mangnifier. Weird I know. I then would demolish the poor my little ponies. Haha.

          Transformers, Mega Man, TMNT, GI Joe, Scooby Doo! All were integral parts of my entertainment as a snot-nosed kid, and now my snot-nosed son gets to enjoy them in cooler, modern variants.

                Transformers is an amazing cartoon from the 80's. It's very interesting how this cartoon is still popular even to this day. Two live action movies with the possibility of another movie in another year or two!!!

                  Man, I remember watching this. I was like 5 or 6. Seems like light years ago. I had several Transformer toys too. Ooh! Anyone remember GoBots?!

                              This is one of the best cartoons ever. Awesome toys too.

                                man, season four was a joke
                                  12 years, 9 months ago
                                  Loved it then, love it now. What more can I say? Although it went to shit after the animated movie came out.
                                    12 years, 9 months ago
                                    Did I mention I have the first season on DVD? Apparently it's not available anymore? LOL, SUFFER!
                                      12 years, 9 months ago
                                      This was Transformers to me everything after G1 I did not bother watching. 1984-1987 and Transformers:The Movie does it get any better?
                                        12 years, 11 months ago
                                        Soundwave is my favorite transfomer! All hail transformers!
                                          12 years, 11 months ago
                                          is this our favorite robot heroes or what!well definetelly mine they are and they will always be!
                                          i love the show the figures everythin that involves those!
                                          except the 90' new transformers!
                                          the 80s were awesome!
                                            12 years, 11 months ago
                                            G1 should be on cartoon network, or at the least boomerang, as frequently as the simpsons! this was the definitive show that shaped an entire generation of chidren and adults alike. Some of the toys did blow though. Have you seen the original Unicron figure? WOW that bites!
                                              12 years, 11 months ago
                                              I loved the robotic trucks, tank, motorcycle ect. In matter of fact...all of the Transformers. My cousin loved them all.
                                                13 years ago
                                                I love the transformers. I've seen every transferms series that has been showen in the US. My faverit caricters from the original Transformers are the Dinobots.
                                                  13 years ago
                                                  Original Transformers-The Best! I liked the tapes. I had Jaguar. Awesome noises. Optimus Prime, Bumble Bee, Jazz, and don't forget Hound. Agree with the comment-"that is the reason I enjoyed my childhood." Why don't they put these shows back on the air? New shows are not good at all.
                                                    13 years, 3 months ago
                                                    I can't ever forget this animation. This show is in my top five of all time great cartoons. Optimus was the best autobot.
                                                      13 years, 4 months ago
                                                      Indeed. This cartoon was beyond badass. The toys were like the best ever too. Children today have lame cartoons and cheap toys. Did anyone have the decepticon six shot? He was so awesome, turned into 6 things, hence the name...
                                                        13 years, 4 months ago
                                                        I love the original Transformers. I'd get the DVD box set if they weren't so rare and expensive.
                                                          13 years, 4 months ago
                                                          I wish Mike Bay watched this show...then his movie (2007) wouldn't have sucked as much:(
                                                            13 years, 5 months ago
                                                            This is one of the reasons I love the good old 1980's this is one of the immortal 1980's cartoon show that expand in the 21st. century it's one of the reasons kids from the 1980's like me enjoyed our childhood I hope my favorite Transformers characters Optimus Prime, Megatron, Ultra Magnus, Galvatron, Sunstreaker, Thundercracker, Kup, Cyclonus, Hot-Rod, Scourge, Fortress Maximus, and Scorponok will have a chance to return in their new saga.
