While some of the character's voices are not true to their Generation One selfs, jon3pnt0 wanted to have stereotypes similar to what is seen in real reality tv shows. Thus some character voices, not all, were changed to reflect that. Check out the video on Youtube or embed below!

Wow, thanks! As to everyone's comments...

No, that's not really Patrick Warburton... just lil' ol' me.
I voiced all the male characters and announcers with help in the female department by BeatlesDiva on YouTube or "Hailstorm" on the Moonbase 2 forums.

also if i didn't know that robert stack was dead, i would have seriously questioned if that was actually him or not... extra great job on that voice!
The Family Guy thing just kind of evolved during the the making of the video. I told my brother about the idea of having stereotypical TF characters and he said that Patrick's voice would make a funny stereotype for Grimlock as the token "jock" character. I had already had Tracks pinned as the "might be gay" character and Cleveland was accidental in that originally Blaster and Jazz had similar voices and I had to make them distinguishable. Oh, and if you love Robert Stack's Magnus, check out "Transformers: Unsolved Mysteries" on my channel!

There were little Robot Chicken nods (also in Arcee's nickname - "RC" ...Robot Chicken). It's one of my favorite shows. But the "channel changing" between clips was merely because I had all these ideas for TF parodies but they were all too short to be full videos by themselves... then I realized they had a theme - reality TV, and that's how I glued the whole thing together.
As for everyone else, I can't thank you enough for all the compliments and the great response it's ALREADY gotten! One of my favorite things was watching the audience react positively to my video as that's not something I can see on the internet! It was a tremendous pleasure meeting the SEIBERTRON.COM staff! YOU GUYS ROCK!
