The weekly update-- this week's episode has some interesting appeal to it for many of us older fans.

Alfred Matthew 'WEIRD AL' Yankovic, of "Dare to be Stupid" fame, guest stars with the crew on TRANSFORMERS ANIMATED this morning at 10:30 AM. Weird Al will bring to life the good-intentioned Wreck-Gar to try to help the Autobots with their Decepticon problems.

Why does this appeal to transfans you might ask besides the introduction of an odd, new character? Weird Al's song, "Dare to be Stupid" was the music used in the 1986 Transformers Movie during the exciting introduction of the Autobots to Wreck-Gar and the Junkions. While Weird Al never voiced the character previously, apparently some powers that be saw it as an interesting connection and went with it, since Weird Al already had ties to Cartoon Network, and Transformers.

And of course, besides the fame to TF fans worldwide due to the movie, Weird Al also has many infamous parody songs such as 'Eat It', 'Ebay', and 'The Saga Begins', as well as his own movie "UHF". Weird Al also voices Squid Hat on Cartoon Network's 'The Grim Stories of Billy And Mandy'.

If you miss the bots and Weird Al today, check it out tomorrow, on Mother's Day--after pampering mom of course-- at 11:00 AM Eastern on Cartoon Network.

Also, of note, TF Animated returns on weekday AMs airing repeats of previous episodes, with 'Nanosec' on Monday at 6:00AM Eastern. Fear not, they are still continuing with new episodes on the weekends with next weekend airing 'Velocity', and then the following weekend scheduled to play 'Rise of the Constructicons'. Check out the Cartoon Network schedule.

ENJOY... with mom's permission of course!
