If this turns out to be the longest running Transformers series ever...




I'll love the chaos that will happen cause the series that is the longest will be the one without Decepticons.

dear lord :shock: this series is going to become longer than a InuYasha story arc, and give G1 a run for its money :shock:

Certainly would be the first Transformers series to get a proper 4th season (G1 had "Rebirth," but I don't really count that three-parter as a "season" per say). As for "longest," well, let's see:

G1 had 98 episodes.
Beast Wars had 52 episodes
Beast Machines had 26 episodes.
Robots in Disguise (2001) had 39 episodes.
Armada had 52 episodes.
Energon had 51 episodes.
Cybertron had 52 episodes.
Animated had 39 episodes.
Prime had 66 episodes (67 if you want to count the TV movie)
So far, Rescue Bots has aired 67 episodes, with at least 5 more set to air in the near future, making a total of 72.
Robots in Disguise (2015) has aired 13 episodes so far (in various markets).

So in terms of total episodes, G1 has had the longest run so far; Rescue Bots needs another 26 episodes to match it. As things go, however, Rescue Bots has had the second longest run in terms of total episodes, so unless Hasbro decides to have another 13 episode season, as they did for both Transformers: Prime and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic during their third seasons (seriously, what happened that year?), Rescue Bot's got a shot to tie the run.

Rescue Bots has already been confirmed to have a full 26 episodes in its third season, making a total of 78. If season 4 can get another 26, that would make 104 episodes. :michaelbay: 8)

Word has it that RID 2015 is planned to have 78 episodes.

Dang it; forgot the pilot for Animated, and I must have counted "Predacons Rising" twice. Silly me.

I only saw 20 episodes listed for Rescue Bots in TfWiki; so that's what I was counting. Doesn't mean there aren't 6 more coming down the pike, but I can only go by the information I had available. ;) Still, that's a pretty long run for a cartoon series (hell, even if the 4th season is only 13 episodes, that's still a long run for a cartoon).

Right, the Wiki doesn't have all 26 season 3 episodes listed yet since some of the titles haven't been revealed yet.

Here's the confirmation of the full 26 episodes - https://twitter.com/NicoleDubuc/status/ ... 2206132224

To the time Transformers was like Valve and Half-Life, impossible to count to 3 4 but now I'm more impressed that is Rescue bots the lucky one. TFA was too close but it failed.

Confirmation from the show's staff, video provided by voice actor D.C. Douglas:

While we already knew that Transformers: Rescue Bots had been renewed for a fourth season from this post, nothing beats hearing it from the cast themselves! Check out below a totally unofficial but wonderfully amazing video featuring Nicole Dubuc, Brian Hohlfeld, Maurice LaMarche, Jason Marsden, Lacey Chabert, Imari Williams, Steve Blum, Parvesh Cheena, D.C. Douglas, and LeVar Burton - via DC Douglas's channel - and some autotuned tuuuunes!

Think it looks like some of these voice actors, the animators might have tried to model their animation character design after the real person voice over actors image.

Chief charlie burns looks so much like Maurice LaMarche. With the added mustache.

Dani Burns looks so much like Lacey Chabert. Looks like the animators gave Lacey Chabert a short hair cut.

Okay, okay. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Your welcome to not like the show, because it is targeted to kiddies, and is lacking in super awesome bad guy Decepticons. Not your thing, fine. But if you can't appreciate how much fun this show is willing to have with itself, you should go make sure someone hasn't shattered that cold, lifeless soul of yours, because this is Tongue-in-Cheek humor GOLD.

I can appreciate the show's humor and the fun it has within itself. I've watched a decent chunk of the series and have collected the merchandise in support. I just don't find it engaging or clever enough to follow for very long, unfortunately.
