The Best Transformers Shows Of All Time

List RulesOriginal series only.

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.
