    Just as the title says, what do you think is the single worst series episode in Transformers history? One that fails in all three catagories:

    Animation
    Voice talents (or lack thereof)
    plot

    For me, I'd say it was the Energon epidoed where all the characters new and old fought eachother in the virtual fight ring. The Japanese version was okay but the english dub was JUST HORRIBLE! It's like the voice actors had no idea what was going on.

    Either that or >insert G1 season three episode hear<.

    Carnage in C-Minor is the Spock's Brain of Transformers. Everyone's so busy bashing it they're completely ignoring the really bad episode (Omega Glory). At least Carnage is amusing in the Plan 9 kind of way.

    I'd say The Girl Who Loved Powerglide.

    EDIT: in a second thought, I think I'll vote for Carnage too. City of Steel is the "enjoyable in a B-movie kinda way" one.

    Runaway, Transformers Armada.

    20 minutes of the kids and Mini-Cons hiding our on an abandoned farm and getting into all sorts of hijinks as they embarass the mighty Thrust? How can you lose?

    An apt title as there has ever been for any television episode.

    Carnival. I liked most of Armada, but that was the lowest point in its entire run. Bad animation, bad voices, and minicons running amok at a fair? There goes the plot. I did not enjoy the episode.

    I think you should add another factor, overall enjoyment. Though the other episodes listed by the posters above, may have failed one way or another in the three areas set by SPLIT LIP, at least I was able to elicit some level of enjoyment out of viewing them. Sometimes things can be so bad they become good again.

    For G1 I thought it was that one where they were in New York City or something like that, featured the Constructicons heavily, and an alligator robot made out of Prime's parts. The huge tower the Decepticons built also had Prime's arm as it's main weaponry........yeah. The animation was wretched and the episode was just silly.

    Haven't watched BW or BM yet, sadly

    As for the rest of em, I can't really remember

    That'd be my vote: City of Steel

    The episode is exemplified by the part where the Autobots are faced down by a horde of maniacal killer taxi cabs, one of them says "Alright everybody...now!!", and IN VEHICLE MODE they all just...fly off the ground, the LEVEL ground, and literally glide throught he air over the taxi army.

    *edit*

    Or, hell, the idea that Megatron has decided to take over New York and New York alone. :lol

    Ugh yeah man. City of Steel. One of the few I skip on the DVD sets.

    I think it has the single worst piece of Transformers animation I've seen - the Autobots/Decepticons were fighting in a park and Soundwave just sticks his arm out and whatever Autobot he was "punching" falls over flat and weightless as if he were made of paper. It was in this awful medium shot too, just totally the worst 'fight' I've ever seen, from any series.

    City of Steel and Carnage in C Minor.

    But it was the 80's. I'm sure the writers and animators all got high on mousse fumes and hairspray, listened to their INXS records and went to work.

    Welcome to AKOM Animation!

    You should hear how the Simpsons staff ripped into them for their DVD commentary for the Flanders Leftorium episode.

    Animation: Carnival (Armada) for the sheer number of scenes consisting of panning across STATIC people pics. Lazy.
    Voice acting: MTMTE for voice actor/line mix-ups
    Plot: The Girl Who Loved Powerglide
