    Title says all. For me, it was 'SOS Dinobots'. From then on, the Dinobots were the Autobots I would always remember.

    What was yours?

    'The Gambler'. I went out and bought G1 Smokescreen and Jetfire. I've been hooked ever since.

    Autobot Attack

    It was amazing! Sure good guys going evil cause of something in their fuel sounds silly now. But I saw the noble struggle of Optimus Prime to overcome his darker nature. I saw the bravery of Bumblebee small as he was to believe in his leader. "Fight it Prime, you're not evil!" That moment gets me every time. So convincing from Cullen and Gilvezan. No time before that as a kid had I seen such depth of emotion in a cartoon. I was hooked.

    I didn't see it again until years laterat BotCon. Everyone around me was laughing at the silliness of it. That was okay, it was silly. I laughed too. But, I was still able to block it out for the dramatic moments that mattered. Yeah, G1 was just as good as it ever was, to me anyway.

    1) Transport to Oblivion
    2) Roll For It
    3) Divide and Conquer

    My brother had those episodes on VHS, and I can't for the life of me remember which of those episodes I watched first. I just remember watching them off/on while I was growing up.

    I'm not exactly sure, but I believe it was "A Prime Problem".

    Ironically, the "Return of Optimus Prime" two-parter which some consider to be the true G1 series finale.

    I was living in Germany on an Air Force base at the time so I saw all the eps about a year late or so on AFN. I'm pretty sure the first I saw though was the one with Beachcomber and the Golden Lagoon. Being as he was also my first TF he's still my favorite character, pacifism and all.

    "More than Meets the Eye" Part 1. I saw it back when they were re-airing the series in the early 1990s. My parents had taped it for me because I was into the toys and they'd seen that there was a cartoon for them.
