The cartoon (along with the Marvel comics) set up the basic story of Transformers that most other incarnations were to follow: two warring factions of robots on the planet Cybertron leave in search of resources.The factions crash-land on Earth and, millions of years later, begin their battle anew in Reagan-era America and across the globe. Any woman who is currently with a man is with him partly because she loves the way he smells. When you mention in passing that a certain woman is attractive — could be someone in the office, a woman on the street, a celebrity, any woman in the world, really — your comment goes into a steel box and it stays there forever. Speaking of your body, you don't understand the power of your own smell. We remember forever what you say about the bodies of other women. Even if you're insecure about something, we love your body. It's about learning what you think is sexy and how we might be able to convey it. And if we haven't smelled you for a day or two and then we suddenly are within inches of you, we swoon. We will file the comment under "Women He Finds Attractive." It's not about whether or not we approve of the comment. Through its 98-episode run, this series took viewers around the globe and to many strange places and times: across the alien Cybertron, the Earth's prehistoric past, the Earth's then-future of 2005, the Metropolis-like society of Nebulos, and more.
Other known production artists include Dell Barras, who worked on second season backgrounds.Once established, the cartoon rarely took any steps to upset its status quo.Plots generally centered on a Decepticon plot or invention of the week, which would be used to gather energy or Defeat The Autobots FOREVER!! Most of the time the Decepticons were forced into retreat, and the Autobots drove off victorious.The producers were often aware of these mistakes, but tight deadlines left no time to correct them.Another byproduct of the rushed production is that the show tends not to be very self-referential.
