Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

An engaging and action-packed mix of the original animated TV series and the blockbuster theatrical movie, Transformers Animated: Season One offers nearly all of the revived heroes' new adventures on a two-disc set. As seen in the previous DVD release, Transformers Animated: Transform and Roll Out, this generation of robots in disguise numbers just four--an inexperienced Optimus Prime and three companions--who have gone into hiding on Earth with the AllSpark, the source of energy for both good and evil Transformers. The Decepticons remain their chief enemies, though conflict comes from human sources as well, like mutated evil scientist Meltdown (well voiced by Peter Stormare). But the Transformers have their own allies as well; namely, an eight-year-old girl whose father happens to be a scientist. The good doctor, however, has what could be a trump card for the Decepticons in his possession: the disembodied head of Villain Supreme Megatron. Told in bold and breezy strokes by its writing and animation team, Transformers Animated does a fine job of incorporating much of the classic Transformers mythology into the new storyline while never losing sight of the show's key appeal: slambang fights between giant robots that can change into vehicles. That respect for the source material should please old school fans without leaving newcomers hopelessly lost in the Transformers' complicated backstory, which makes altogether possible the charming notion that fathers and their offspring can both enjoy this series at the same time. Unfortunately, all audiences wishing to catch up with the first season of Transformers Animated will not find the complete series on this double-disc set; the three-part premiere episode is only available on the aforementioned Transform and Roll Out disc. It's an unfortunate move, as is the lack of any substantial extras save for a gallery of Season 2 images. --Paul Gaita

4.0 out of 5 stars Missing 3 episodes from season 1 July 4, 2008
Format:DVD
This boxset will include the remaining 13 episodes out of 16. You must buy the "Transform and Roll Out" dvd if you want the pilot.

Included episodes are:

Episode 4: Home is Where the Spark is
Episode 5: Total Meltdown
Episode 6: Blast From the Past
Episode 7: Thrill of the Hunt
Episode 8: Nanosec
Episode 9: Along Came a Spider
Episode 10: Sound & Fury
Episode 11: Lost & Found
Episode 12: Survival of the Fittest
Episode 13: Headmaster
Episode 14: Nature Calls
Episode 15: Megatron Rising, Part One
Episode 16: Megatron Rising, Part Two

I did not include any synopsis in case you did not get the chance to watch all the episodes and wanted to be surprised.

This is a fantastic series and great for both kids and adult fans. Season 2 just ended, and it just keeps getting more and more exciting.

From what I gather, it will be in full screen, and Dolby Digital Audio with a total run time of 286 minutes.

I highly recommend new and old fans alike to buy this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not misslabled, it IS the Complete First Season August 10, 2008
Format:DVD
People keep complaining that this set is missing the first 3 episodes. This is not true, as "Home is Where the Spark is" IS the first episode. Transform and Roll Out was produced AS A MOVIE, and was only split into episodes for reruns.

This season also has several great episodes, such as Blast from the Past (Introducing the Dinobots), Thrill of the Hunt, and my favorite, Sound and Fury, introducing my favorite character, Soundwave.

3.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable show for Transformer fans October 9, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Overall, this is an enjoyable series, but I do have two complaints.

The first is just a matter of taste. I am not a huge fan of the style of drawing used in this series. Far too many cartoons these days are regressing to this simplictic, childish style of animation. The stories, however, are good enough to help overlook this and the type humor in the show would likely not work as well with more realistic artwork.

My bigger complaint if in the depiction of Optimus Prime himself. There is no sense (at least where I am at, just finishing disk one) that he is in fact the leader of the group. Without Bumblebee calling him "Bossbot", and the history of the whole Transformers franchise, you would think of him as just another member of the group, and not a particularly major one. He is weak, unsure of himself, and is not commanding. As a huge fan of Prime, this was a major let down.

On a postitive note, I very much like the Prowl in this version, and Megatron, though just a head so far, has an air of menace that he lacked in the orginal G1 series.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Addition to the Series! August 20, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've loved every episode of this TF series and the characters have so much more personality than G1 ever did. I'm not bashing the original, but I've never laughed so hard at G1's 'humor' than in Animated. The plot in this version of Transformers runs a lot deeper and flows nicely. The action during the battles is amazing and having the main protagonists be rookies and work themselves up is a delightful change to the norm.

The characters are very likable and will grow quickly on you. Even Megatron himself and his cynicism will have you chuckling.

My only gripe about this DVD is that it's missing the pilot episodes. It's not a complete Season 1 set without "Transform and Roll Out". That's just money grubbing Hasbro for you. So, I'm forced to buy Transform and Roll Out to complete the first of my collection.

Next is to scrape up enough money to buy Seasons 2 and 3. Or hope the price lowers enough.

In any case, all Transformers fans should pick this series up one way or another. Get over your qualms about it being different and enjoy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars ravage 24/7 February 1, 2012
Format:DVD
Transformers Animated is awesome!The Autobots have the Allspark&The Key which the Decepticons will stop at nothing to posses.The Autobots find a human friend in Sari Sumdac,an 8-year old girl that plays a vital component of the team and keeper of The Key.Season 1 includes the introduction of some G1 favorites like The Dinobots,Soundwave,and my favorite Blackarachnia.This Decepticon vixen looks the best she ever has with straight up looks that kill.Blackarachnia is the best Decepticon fembot ever with one wicked cool spider mode that is one of the most realistic ever.Megatron is as menacing as ever for an excellent representation of the classic decepticon leader.Optimus Prime grows more into the leadership role as the series progresses.The battle scenes get more amazing as well with cool special effects.Starscream is his sinister self with schemeing plots all throughout the series to really keep the season interesting.Transformers Animated Season 1 is a thrill ride from start to finish that will please any transformer fan around.Bottom line Transformers Animated Season 1 has compelling storylines,amazing action,and awesome characters throughout the series that make this DVD a 10 out of 10 experience that all transformer fans will enjoy.I highly recommend Transformers Animated Season 1 to all transformer fans out there.Transformers Rule!!!
