More than Meets the Eye Part 1 28th Anniversary - 28 years of Transformers Cartoons

So, on this day in 1984, we had the first-ever episode of Transformers broadcast on TV. From that first episode we've clocked up over 500 episodes of cartoons, and even with all of that More than Meets the Eye the three part pilot still holds up very well as the one that started it all.

Being in the UK, most of my memories are of waiting until July 1985 for Season One, getting it in 4 minute portions (Timmy Mallett was my childhood animated crack dealer, damn that man), and never seeing anything after that series until we got Sky in the early 90s.

This, among many things, helped 1984 to be one of if not THE best years of my adolescence.

Even if I wasn't around for the original 1984 release, I feel like I lived it through those awful G2 re-runs and my recorded VHS tape Happy birthday to one of the biggest passions of my life!
