For kids? or Four kids?
*shudders at the mention of 4Kids*
Oh god. Now the nightmares will return again.
Soo, what’s the word on the water supply?
Why do purists think the original Transformers was dark and gritty?
Because they haven’t actually WATCHED the original Transformers in a LOOOONG time. If they did, they’d realize it wasn’t dark and gritty AT ALL. One of the wondrous things about being a security guard out in the middle of nowhere was the fact that I got to watch movies all night long and got paid for it. Not very well, mind you, but still…getting paid to watch movies is awesome. So I found all the old episodes, ripped them to my flash drive, and brought them with me. It was great for nostalgia, but not dark and gritty at all. Remember, this is a KID’S SHOW!!!
Also, Jetfire rules.
When one of the episodes you specifically remember involved the Transformers all being teleported to an alien planet where they’re smaller than a little child…you remember it wasn’t all that serious.
But I blame the movie for people thinking the cartoon was dark and gritty. I think it rose expectations of what the show should be like to them now.
Probably because they murdered pretty much the entire cast in the movie to make room for new toy advertisements.
Yeah, the movie was dark and gritty.
To be fair, the new-ish series Transformers: Prime is pretty badass. And while it’s definitely a kids show, it’s one of the rare REALLY GOOD kids shows.
Although I think they also gear it just a bit towards adult fans of the franchise while keeping it kid friendly. It’s definately one of the darkest animated incarnations of our guys to date. Admittedly, it’s also awesome, but so was Transformers Animated, which was definately capable of its own occasional dark moments.
Then again, you’re talking to a woman with Pinkie Pie as her avatar, so what do I know?
