Cartoon Robots

Transformers - Group of robotic warriors from the planet Cybertron who used the Earth as a battleground to defeat their million-year-old nemesis called the Decepticons on the science fiction cartoon TRANSFORMERS/SYN/1984-85.

Optimus Prime & Megatron - Transformers Cartoon

Both Transformers and Decepticons had the ability to "transform" their bodies into all sorts of objects, including cars, trucks and a variety of military equipment.

As the series theme song intoned these outer space aliens were "More than meets the eye."

Opening Narration

"Many millions of years ago, on the planet Cybertron, life existed. But, not life as we know it today. Intelligent robots, that could think and feel inhabited the cities. They were called Autobots and Decepticons. But, the brutal Decepticons were driven by a single goal, total domination. They set out to destroy the peace-loving Autobots, and a war between the forces of good and evil raged across Cybertron. Devastating all in it's path. Draining the planet's once rich sources of energy. The Autobots, on the verge of extinction, battle valiantly to survive."

Theme Song Lyrics

The Transformers,
More than meets the eye
Autobots wage their battle
to destroy the evil forces
of the deceptions
The Transformers
Robots in disguise
The Transformers
More than meets the eye
The Transformers

The series concept continued with TRANSFORMERS: GENERATION II/SYN1993 (revamped 1984 episodes) and later in the 1990s with BEAST WARS: TRANSFORMERS/SYN/1996 as giant animals (Maximals) transformed via computer morphing technology into fighting robots who thwart the evil Predacons from taking over the galaxy.

The Hasbro Toys company successfully merchandised replicas of these animated characters; and Hanna-Barbera/TeleRep produced a similar series CHALLENGE OF THE GOBOTS/SYN/1985 about robots from the planet Gobotron now living on Earth who battled their arch enemies the Cykills.
