As we get closer and closer to the end of the original Transformers cartoon, our All-Star Guests continue coming. This episode we are joined by the hosts of the excellent podcast Stranger Still, Jon Beigen and Nicholas Wood! Nick also does the Hanna-Barbera based cartoon review show Limited Cel with his dad, but you can find it at the same link. If you’re looking for specific episodes to start with, the PETA episode of Stranger Still and the Banana Splits Adventure Hour on Limited Cel were both good.

Jon’s Insane Moment was when a bunch of the Autobots got infected by the rage virus:

Nick chose the moment when they were juuuust about to melt Optimus Prime’s body down:

Adam enjoyed seeing Rodimus build a team and having all of them transform back to back (careful if you’re playing the drinking game during this sequence):

And Kevin loved it when Rodimus Prime transformed to jump over an infected Ultra Magnus, then transformed back and drove away:

All right, join us next time for the conclusion of The Return of Optimus Prime and another of our amazing guests!

Episode 58: Trans-Europe Express

It’s a race to the bottom this week as Megatron has another awful plan and we basically hated the episode. But we still managed to have some fun! Listen to it here:

Kevin’s Most Insane Moment was when Bumblebee was able to effortlessly steal something important right out of Megatron’s hand:

Adam’s Most Insane Moment was very long and involved Motormaster chasing down Jazz and… murdering him?

UPDATE: Thanks to listener AsherV20 (maybe not their given name?) for calling us out. That isn’t Jazz! It’s Wheeljack!

See you all next week for what we can only hope is a better episode!

Episode 57: Masquerade

The Stunticons continue to be front and center this week (while everyone seems to have forgotten that the Aerialbots even exist) and the Autobots decide that cosplay is the answer! You can listen to it here:
