    Anything is possible in the magical world of Animationerropolis. Including a Decepticon Sideswipe.

    That, or Megatron's incompetence is so much worse than originally believed.

    Crazy crap like that is pretty normal for the G1 toon. Nearly every episode has some kind of weird error in it. Usually it's a tf with the wrong faction symbol.

    "G1 cartoon" and "quality control" are often mutually exclusive terms.

    With all of the repaints of molds as different characters I like to think of it as a different character.

    I'd like to see some TF comics that go "behind the scenes" to explain all the mistakes...like "The secret of Sideswipe's defection" telling about a story that was going on at the same time as the cartoon, or something. Think Tag and Bink to get an idea how I want to see it. I'd buy such a series.

    Watched this episode on Saturday morning. My daughter and I watch a couple of episodes every morning (only just got the box set!)

    Yeah, Side Swipe is stood next to Megatron. Don't actually remember the series being quite as bad as it is in some places but it doesn't bother me too much.

    Thundercracker, Skywarp and Starscream all tend to share colour schemes and voices from time to time. Funniest is where theres 2 or 3 Starscreams in the same picture.

    Hilarity...I just watched that yesterday!

    I am watching my personal "best of" when prepping for Botcon, and I never noticed that one before but I did yesterday.

    Eh, animation errors like wrong faction symbols aren't anything new. I recall Hot Shot and Megatron were frequently wearing the wrong symbols in Armada.

    I've also noticed how many times Megatrons symbol is painted red.

    Is there a "Most lamest episode thread?" Personally "Kremzeek" looks like a knock-off Pokemon Peekachu.

    I'd be tempted to put a fiver on where the idea for Peekachu came from :) 

    In the defence of the series, the quality seems to improve during season 2; IMO anyway.
