    Oh, and just to get on the fun train while it's still going:

    I believe that it's time we, the fans, made a stand over Hasbro's shocking decision to make TFA surplus to requirements. What are they playing at? You might wonder what chance we have of changing anything, but someone needs to be given a short, sharp lesson. Hasbro and Cartoon Network are going to reap the whirlwind over this, you mark my words; we'll fight and die for this show, until we can bring Hasbro down to earth. Can we do less? :D

    I am saddened by this rumor and will be even more so if found to be true. Three 13 episode seasons is way too short for this wonderful show. I can only hope that if Animated is to end with season 3 it is because it will continue on as JLU and Ben 10 have done.

    I would have discounted the rumor entirely if Kickback hadn't been the one starting the thread.

    NNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

    They can't conclude Animated with season 3! Those heartless bastards! Just when I thought we finally have a decent-enough series to last for more than 3-4 seasons, too!

    See I don't mind a move like that. These characters have grown on me since episode 1 and the show makes me like a kid again on Weekend mornings. The cast is rich and lively. I dare say that these 5 main Autobots are the best in any incarnation. I love seeing how close they've become since the pilot and how they are family to Sari.

    Well to be fair Kickback's source said no comment, the starter of it all is apparently just some anonymous e-mail.

    You should face the truth. It's over - FINISHED!
    Hasbro wields a power beyond measure. It's up to them to decide whether or not it's time TFA wasn't here!

    Perhaps but he has been correct in the past. I hold only hope in my hands and pray it doesn't turn to sand.

    I hope there is a sequel series planned. The quality of this series shows how much the creators care, it would be a shame for to be over so soon. I will be one bummed out fan if this is true.

    Okay, WTF is up with all the Furmanisims in this thread?

    Anyway. I'd like for Animated to last at least 5 seasons like Teen Titans and The Batman. Ideally, I'd like it to last forever, but I'd happily settle for five seasons. I cannot think of any real good reason why it couldn't last that long.

    Unless it's a JLU style revamp like others have suggested. I'd like that very much.

    However, if this is true, I will mourn, and probably shift my toy priorities to focus on Animated. Hell, I'd try to get damn near every figure.

    Actualy there's LESS haters than people that like it.

    Haters just make alot more noise out of their bitter-powered engines.

    I love animated, but if they cancel it and replace it with a show based on the classics line. I would be one happy camper. I mean... animated is a cool show and I like the toys alot, because I like the characters alot.

    BUT I LOVE the classic toys. If we can't have both and the movie toys, I'll take the classics hands down. If the show sucks, so what. If the show is good that's a bonus. I hope this is what they are doing.

    So if we start a petition, it should be to make the next show a CLASSIC.

    This is the age of fan power, my friend: you won't believe the things we can do now! You mark my words, they can be hurt. Over? Finished? Far from it; Hasbro are about to discover that this never ends!
