    Cartoon Network is currently airing a series based off of Superhero Squad.

    If it's in same vane of humor and action and we get a loads of TF characters from known to obscure, I say bring it on.

    It would be cool if they did it as a series of shorts or something. I'd also be interested to see it in a comic or storybook form for kids.

    If it was similar to Animated, count me in.

    I'd think it was a bad idea as a main series.

    What if they used the robot heroes at the end of a main show as either a little end-credits comedy stuff, or a "teach kids life lessons" kind of deal?

    I could get behind this series.

    The "I am Optimus Prime" storybook that IDW put out was pretty cute. Except for the OMG DROP IN DRIFT BECAUSE WE THINK HE'S AWSUM part.

    As long as it's not a PSA kind of thing, I'd be fine with it.
    Powerglide: Hey, kid. Don't forget to walk on the opposite side of the road to oncoming traffic if there's no pavement.
    Kid: Thanks Powerglide. Your advice means a lot, because a guy who rushes into combat with three guys several times bigger than him is clearly a master of risk assessment!

    I exaggerate, but I never liked the lessons tacked on at the end of cartoons. I don't want a man in fur pants telling me what to do if a teacher starts touching me inappropriately. Just fight monsters and STFU.

    Not as a main series, but I don't think anyone's seriously suggesting that. As some kind of side project (perhaps a cutesy over-the-credits skit - you know, like Chowder has with it's puppet segments?) I would foam at the mere prospect. There's an awful lot of fun potential in Robot Heroes to be a Mini-Marvels-Super-Hero-Squad-style character-team-up thing without any worry or regard for continuity, universe or time-period.

    I don't know about a whole series, but as others have said, to make short, humorous Robot Heroes skits that air midway through the course of a full Transformers episode or after the credits would be sweet. Japanese cartoons do that a lot with super-deformed versions of their characters, and I'm thinking that the Robot Heroes segments could be of a similar vein.

    They did the end-skit thing with the Ghost in the Shell series and the Tachikomas. It was actually really fun to watch, but I think it'd really have to depend on the 'feel' of the main series. If it's like Animated, then a RH short would fit.

    Oh, man, yeah! "Tachikoma Days" is the perfect comparison! And I'd say if anything, it proves that it doesn't matter what sort of feel the main show has - GitS is totally straight, deep and philosophical-like, and still gets away with it!

    If it has a decent plot, I think I'll watch it.

    Have you guys actually watched Super Hero Squad?

    I tried 2 separate episodes this past weekend. It was really tough to watch. I couldn't make it through either episode.

    I think that's because they were full episodes.

    I mean, I can understand if a show is pitched younger than me. I can accept it and see its merit, even if I don';t want to watch it personally.

    Not with the Super Squad, I couldn't.

    I think stretching it out to full episode length makes it harder. A cutsey little 2-3 minute thing? Might work better.

    Mark me down on that side.

    If it's done in the vein of the omake segments that run after some anime shows (Bleach springs straight to my mind) I'd be all for it.

    from a marketing standpoint i can't see this working as even the largest sets of Robot heroes aren't gonna see the sales of transforming transformers but as a side skit thing id be okay with it
