This animated series was produced from September 17, 1984 to November 11, 1987 for 4 seasons and 98 episodes.

It was created to market the toys of the same name, features robots that can transform into various forms, such as vehicles, weapons, animals and more. The Hasbro toys hit the shelves in early 1984 and was quickly followed that same year by a comic book series and a cartoon series.

The transformers were broken into two factions: Autobots (good) and Decepticons (evil). The two warring factions left their home planet of Cybertron in search of energy. Various events bring them to the planet Earth millions of years ago.

Reactivated by a volcano, they continued to wage war, aided by good and evil humans. The Decepticons, led by Megatron, want to strip the planet of its energy resources. The Autobots, led by Optimus Prime, work to keep Earth safe from the Decepticons. A big number of characters were introduced, and new 'bots as well including the Dinobots and Insectibots among others.

Between the second and third seasons, a feature film was released, Transformers: The Movie (1986), which was part of the continuity. The third season picks up where the film left off. The third season was animated by a different production company and the animation quality suffered. A brief fourth season was released in 1987, which set the stage for later incarnations of the series.
