    its a pity, they're always better remembered than they are.

    still one of the better cartoon shows of that era.

    Season 3 is pure comedic gold for the animation errors.

    My personal favorite of this batch is Soundwave flying in cassette player mode, which I guess isn't so much an error* as a what the hell? moment.

    *I mean... if Soundwave can fly in robot mode, why he can't he fly in cassette mode? Besides it looking completely ridiculous?

    In seasons 1 and 2, the Transformers would get shot and the blast would slam them against a wall or knock them back. Then there would be commercials or a scene cut and the injured robot would "wake up".

    In season 3 the laser blasts would make the robots completely explode -sometimes with their heads flying off the screen! Yet later they would "wake up" or just magically be back in frame with no damage at all.

    The funniest animation error I saw in a TF cartoon was in season 3..i dont remember which episode it was, but there was a Bruticus the size of Soundwave, standing next to another decepticon, they were both the same height..:lolol 

    Another was in Season 2, I saw Perceptor with the Decepticon symbol on his chest, :D 

    I also remember seeing Sideswipe standing next to Megatron in the Decepitcon base, as he was talking to somebody on the monitor..and then he disappeared and SOundwave or Starscream took his place..just classic!

    There are so many errors, its crazy..we could write a book on the animation errors

    Even as a kid I wondered wtf was up with the size of Devastator, so I found that pic with his scaling issues to be pretty damn funny.

    Having watched a bunch of g1 recently on my bigscreen tv, sure there's a crapton of animation errors, but it's still better than a lot of the kids shows today with their lame styling and sloppy quality(I said a lot, not all).

    In Season 3, Skylynx Frequently has a Decepticon Symbol as well.

    There was a pic I uploaded on the wiki where Bluestreak's vehicle mode looked like a Movie TF's protoform entry mode - it was a long blob.

    Watch Season 3 of G1 then. No show is more erratically animated than G1 Season 3.

    Has anyone ever seen the episode where Megatron transforms into gun mode, but doesn't mass shift? He stays exactly the same size and latches onto Starscream's undercarriage. I can't remember the episode for the life of me.

    That's what it was! Thanks, this has been bugging me for a while now. All those end of episode fights just blur together, what with all of them taking place in a barren featureless desert.
