Transformers: Animated

I watched the new Transformers cartoon on Cartoon Network this morning.

Important newsflash to CN animators: Transformers are robots! As such, they don't have lips, dimples, teeth, or smiles. They don't get wide-eyed when surprised. And they sure don't look like humans wearing armor! They are robots, make them look like robots! Megatron was the only robotic-looking robot in the show, and he was just a head.

Your assignment: Go watch the original series, or even any of its remakes and sequels and see how Transformers are supposed to look.

Hint for the future: Let the Transformers transform occasionally. That's where the magic is created for the children.
