transformers dont really get treated that much but when they do you hardly notice it, also a example megas xlr best program aswell as transformers in britain isnt changed at all as my family went too america florida not some time ago
we found out it was the same violance but the americans have newer episodes

My vote for the HOF goes to my favorite Transformer, Kup, to the Headmasters (who still need new figures that aren't just the characters without their master components) and to seibertron.com for for being the ultimate TF resource.

I always thought POP was geared towards a younger audience. The most mature cartoons I've seen on there are Super Mario World and Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog.

So what! Its going to have G1 on it! This will be the first time I'll be able to watch a G1 episode and remember it! As all the others were when I was about 3! :D
Now, if only we could get a channel to re-show Beast Wars, God I loved that show, but I can only really remember the episodes I've got on video and DVD

Yes but Leo, I watch Super Mario World. And transformers are a kids line. We just happen to love it also ;D
Looking forward to this one quite a bit. Get em to love G1 while they're really small, and soon enough we'll have a new wave of G1ers to help fight Hasblo!!!

O, don't get me wrong, I watch Mario and Sonic, too. I've grown up with those fellows. I just imagined TF was aimed at slightly older children, not the Thomas the Tank Engine age group that POP seems to be for. Either way, it's good news.

This great because i've never watched it. I'm thirteen and only seen the modern ones (Armada, Energon and Cybertron) This is an awsome time to see it and become a proper fan.

I remember Boomerang. I didn't realise it wasn't around anymore, though.

Shinobicon, you don't have to watch G1 to be a proper fan. If you've watched those cartoons and enjoyed something about Transformers enough to sign up here you must already be a proper fan!

Actually, I'm pretty sure the Transformers series have never been edited for violence here, but occasionally for time. Back in the day, we used to get one G1 episode spread out over a week and cut into 3-4 minute segments!

To be honest, the UK censor's obsession with cutting cartoons for violence has by & large disappeared in recent years. Case in point - when the Ninja Turtles first came over here in 1990, they were renamed the Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles and all scenes with Michaelangelo's nunchukus (sp?) weapons were cut. The live action movie was also heavily cut.

However, the 2003 series kept the Ninja Turtles name, and no scenes were edited.

So, the censors have relaxed a little in recent years!

(The only other 1980s cartoon that I recall also being heavily edited was Thundercats, again for Panthro's nunchukus weapon...)

Sometimes that made Hero Turtles look like it had a lot more animation errors than it actually did, as sometimes scenes were rejigged, either deliberately or accidentally, so certain things didn't make sense.

When was Transformers stripped into 3-4 minute segments? I remember it used to happen to Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog on the Big Breakfast and The Super Mario Bros. Super Show on TV-AM (later GMTV).
