No one is saying you have to but, it was a family show heck they even had a toy line. On topic, the point is that Tf Prime has to satisfy a broad auidence the IDW comics have a narrow auidence to please.
IDW= Greatest Transformers continuity EVER!!!!!!
Peter Cullen= Optimus Prime
Frank Welker= Megatron
Prime was the best TF show to date, can the new RID show do better?

I miss those days. It's sad when a show only becomes accepted after it ends.

And while everyone is giggling later at Moustachimus Prime there's a Decepticon alert and Optimus rushes off through the Ground Bridge before anyone can tell him about the prank. Cue every Decepticon Optimus then encounters, including Megatron, thrown off their stride by his drawn-on face fuzz.

Edit: Just realised however that any drawn-on moustache on Optimus would get covered in battle by his mouth-guard. Bugger. And I was so enjoying the idea too. Unless the writers upped the joke by having an even bigger moustache drawn on Optimus' mouth-guard. It would be like a second comedy hit when he activated it and there it was. Maybe a full-on beard and grinning teeth for that reveal.

That would be pretty good, actually.

I'd definitely laugh at both of those ideas. And I'd love to see that kind of interaction.

But it's almost too funny/slapstick. I could see a toned down version of the first idea playing out. Maybe like Bumblebee walking by in the Autobot base with no one else around, stopping, and walking back to where Airachnid is being held. He looks around, making sure that no one is around. And then making faces (or the closest thing he can do to making faces) at her, wiggling his fingers, scowling, etc. (you know, the Bumblebee equivalent of sticking out his tongue and saying "Na na na na boo-boo!") and then having Ratchet walk in on this. They stare at each awkwardly and Ratchet just rolls his eyes, grumbles "Ughh...." and walks away.
Interested in anything to do with voice-acting? Look no further than Behind the Voice Actors!

Meh. Beast Wars was a great series that knew when to be serious, and it went the route of Rhinox downing wild beans and blasting the Predacons with the biggest fart in the universe. And hell, even Megatron thought it was completely ludicrous that such a thing happened to him.

Mustaches drawn on Optimus's face/faceplate is pretty tame. (Though it'd be hilarious, nonetheless ).
