    Exactly. G1 was meant to be fun and campy, so nothing is really ridiculous in context.

    Though...
    Dr. Arkville,
    Devcon,
    Gestalts,
    Vector Sigma,
    Scramble City,
    Golden Lagoons,
    Races,
    Playing Basketball,
    Surfing,
    Planet traveling,
    Space Bridges,
    Carbombya,
    Purple Griffins,
    Matrix,
    Unicron,
    Quintessons,
    and everything about it seems "ridiculous" for an 80's cartoon of the time if you never think about the possibility of a fusion of Optimus Prime and Megatron created by Quintesson science called Guiltaur and possessed by Starscream seems far more "ridiculous"... So "ridiculous"...
    So you fessed up.

    I agree with this list. Honestly, I don't think even the Japanese understand what was going on with Scramble City. Oh, and Unicron being created by an alien monkey. Just why?

    Scramble City in name or in action? I get the name part. But the idea that switching limbs heals you and behaves as some sort of power up is still a mystery to how you can heal in mid battle.

    ^I was talking about the Scramble City Japanese only movie that was meant to fill in the gap between S2 and S3, because TF:TM didn't get released there until a long time after.

    EDIT: Here's a link to the TFwiki page: http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Scramble_City:_Mobilization

    Oh! Well, that's simple. If you want to explain a story of how two colossal robot triple changer cities existed in such a short time in Season 3, guess you could use Scramble Power to explain both factions created them in their prototype stage at the end of Season 2, stopped using them during the movie, then revived them at Season 3. Mind boggling at least.

    Just because someone acknowledges (and perhaps even embraces) the faults in a show does not mean they hate it.

    Rapist Optimus was awkward, I wouldn't call that a "fun and campy" thing inserted in a cartoon. It was poorly thought out. Still one of my favorite episodes, I just skip that scene.
    Heh. Heh heh.
