Not buying it. Story editors not having time to do detailed passes of the script is an entirely different problem to having a cast list.

It's an issue that exists in pretty much all cartoons from that era. Get to 65 episodes so it can be syndicated, make sure they all end on a reset so that they can be aired out of order.

Where continuity is necessary, all it needs is for the script co-ordinators to be paying attention so that, if episodes are re-ordered, they at least don't contradict one another. The schedule is the thing that stops that being done, rather than Hasbro saying "hey could you introduce the Aerialbots at some point".

If you want an example of how this can turn out far, far worse under the same conditions then I'm sure Cliffy can walk you through the equivalent series advertising the Gobots.
