I think it's simpler than that. Hanna Barberra and it's 'government partners' had a stranglehold on televised cartoons in the United States up through the early 1980s. As more and more companies got...

Watched it.. and it's pretty bad. Take all the worst elements of RID and the Unicron Trilogy and toss them in a blend. Then, be sure to add the 'on a budget' spice to the mix. Bake half-way, and then...

Going from my old man's memory from a Susan Blu interview, without Arcee the casting for TF:TM would have been 100-percent male, which was an absolute no-no. (To back this up a little bit, I've also...
