    A couple cartoons on that list should be, but wow, most of those shouldn't be. They forget that many of those shows carried better messages for children than most shows do today. I think the author is just making his picks to garner attention.

    I cant disagree with the author. transformers is hard to watch, it was fun when i was a kid, but i cant watch it at all anymore.

    The simple fact that I don't see Turbo-teen on that list just shows you how utter rubbish it is.

    its all a matter of opinion. most of these polls are taken by smarmy emo kids who don't think transformers is cool enough for them

    I have to agree, for the most part. My memories of the shows are much better than the actual shows themselves. It was really hard watching them again... Jem included. That's why I'm so glad they're giving G1 a nice refresh with the new line and cartoon next year.

    Ah, of course. I bet most of the 'I've seen the 2007 TF movie and G1 sucks' self-proclaimed Transformers fans here voted in that one too. What a shame.

    Actually, they Should replace PokèMon with DuelMasters, and Transformers with Turbo Teen.

    Otherwise, i would vote MSN for worst channel ever!
    And Robert Isenberg as the stupidiest Anime-commentator ever!

    The cartoon was always pretty dumb and chock full of rubbish stories/concepts (Windcharger in a lab coat is possibly the most retarded idea for a disguise in entertainment history) but hell, it wasn't anything like as bad as He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, Dogtanian and the Three Muskehounds, Filmation's Ghostbusters ripoff, The goddamn unbearable unwatchable please just die Raccoons, etc.

    So yeah, a somewhat overly harsh result. I do get the slight impression there's a kind of revisionist thinking towards any form of the 'brand' (for lack of a better word) going on at the moment, an almost Orwellian style revisionist approach to history that rubbishes the past to make the present look better in comparison. Or something.

    I recently got that G1 Chinese set, and I've been loving it. It's easier for me to watch that then Cybertron or beast machines. Esp the episodes that I missed when I was a kid.

    QFT. I will always hold G1 close to my heart with all the fond memories of watching and loving each episode as a kid..
    But now, after getting the DVDs, I'm pretty much disappointed at how terrible the show is. The stories are laughably bad, the dialogue even worse, but..
    It worked for young kids.

    Now that I'm older, I want TFs to be a bit more mature, thus I go with the comics/latest movie.

    Season 1 is pretty good! Tight cast, decent stories etc. but Season 2 is a disaster as far as I'm concerned. I liked around five of the episodes and that's it! Season 3 was a bit better for stories, but didn't feature any characters worth caring about and they actually seemed to forget that they were "robots in disguise"....
    I actually prefer REBIRTH to either Seasons 2 or 3.

    Just my opinions of course, nothing more.

    No He-man on that list completely invalidates it in my opinion. Plus, every list from here to the far corners of the web are gonna include Transformers just because of the movie.

    Reinforces my opinion of MSN and it's editorial staff.

    12 Oz. Mouse, anyone?

    Transformers had a great bit of untapped potential, but it's far from terrible.
