Released in 1984, the original Transformers cartoon pitted the heroic Autobots against the evil Decepticons. The iconic series spanned three seasons (four if you count The Rebirth), featured a hit blockbuster movie, and helped launch one of the most successful toy lines in history.
While Generation One helped kickstart what would eventually become a cultural Transformers takeover—including five live-action Transformers films and a Bumblebee biopic—true fans know there’s way more than meets the eye.
