Fellow Transformers fansite Transformers @ The Moon, purveyors of rarities and hidden gems in all incarnations of the franchise, have recently cracked open the listening devices, and unearthed a deleted scene from the original More Than Meets the Eye pt 1 episode of the Generation 1 animated series - or at least, its audio! You can find a full transcript for the recording below, as well as checking it out directly with the embedded YouTube clip. Let us know what you make of this in the Energon Pub! Is there anything else you'd be willing to find out more about, too?

Transformers More than Meets the Eye Part 1 deleted scene audio: teaser

This video contains a sample of the audio taken from the original Sunbow Productions unslugged cassette tape "MP4023 Transformers Day 1 Unslugged". The audio is from the opening act and contains two extended pieces of dialogue and the audio for a scene that was removed from the final cartoon production.

The missing scene is between Wheeljack and Bumblebee with the first extended dialogue also between the two with the second being Soundwaves.

Below you will find a transcript of the dialogue with the new pieces of dialogue and missing scene clearly marked.

Holy Toledo! It raises the question, is there more surviving audio of deleted scenes?

- Yes and my brother and I shall be posting more over the coming weeks / months until we run out of surviving material from the unslugged and slugged tapes.

Expect more deleted scenes and a little more Wally Burr guidance

Good stuff. Much of this can probably actually be inserted into existing video by some clever fans out there who have more time and resources than I do. ;)

This is awesome, can't wait to hear the others. Good work guys and thanks. Just begs for Masterpiece ReAnimatedhttps://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzo0rWyQdCznorrvd-OzEBA to do these deleted scenes. That would be incredibly sweet.

Thank you for posting this !!!!

someone really needs to create the EXTENDED EDITION of this and other episodes, fairly easy ( just time consuming ) by splicing in the audio and using old cartoon footage and music and splicing it all together to make this episode the ultimate complete extended edition !

whos up to it ?

Something tells me the extra scene with Ratchet repairing Bumblebee would have been Optimus's proper introduction scene, what with it coming before Jazz's return to Iacon (which is where Optimus first appears in the finalized episode) and with Bumblebee's unnaturally formal use of "Optimus Prime" spoken as though it was done for the audience's sake more than anything.

The dropped lines aren't necessary and don't really add anything important, but it's great to hear new (old) sound-bytes after so many years! (And the behind-the-scenes directions from Wally Burr.) Thanks, Moonbug. Optimus Prime has the best voice. <3

Do you have any tapes from Enter the Nightbird? I'm curious if Chris Latta read the complete line: "Say good night to your Robotessa, Megatron!" (the line appear to have been cut in the final version.)

And if there are any more references to all the traps Shockwave had left behind for the Autobots in The Key to Vector Sigma.

This is pretty cool!

So far I do not believe we have audio for either of those episodes I'm afraid. Dave is still working through sorting and transferring the tapes. So far they have all survived but some are not as they are labelled.

So far the tapes we can confirm we have are:

Transformers
------------
More than Meets the Eye Pt 1 - Unslugged
More than Meets the Eye Pts 1& 2 - Slugged
More than Meets the Eye Pt2 - Unslugged
More than Meets the Eye Pt2 (copy)- Unslugged - Needs comparing to see if its a duplicate audio track or a different composite
More than Meets the Eye Pt2 - Slugged
More than Meets the Eye Pt3 - Unslugged
More than Meets the Eye Pt3 - Slugged
Roll For It - Unslugged
Roll For It - Slugged
Divide and Conquer - Unslugged
Divide and Conquer - Slugged
A Plague of the Insecticons - Unslugged


G.I.Joe
-------
The Revenge of Cobra Part 4: Battle on the roof of the world - Unslugged
Jungle Trap (slugged/unslugged TBC) - On B side to MTMTE Pt 3

Muppet Babies (yeah, not what was expected)
-------------
Noisy Neighbors - Slugged

Visionaries
-----------
7x BGM tapes
The Age Of Magic - Unslugged
Dawn of the Sun Imps - Unslugged
Excerpts from Dawn of the Sun Imps

I'm sure that whatever you guys can salvage from any episode will be great! Thanks for the work and sharing!

Looking forward to hearing what got deleted from Roll for it, Divide and Conquer and Plague of the Insecticons. It feels great to get new G1 Sunbow stuff after all these years.

It just hit me. Bumblebee sustained damage to his rear axle in this scene. Guess what the name of RID 2015 Bumblebee's favorite band is.

Fellow Fansite Transformers At The Moon has put up their second video highlighting deleted dialogue from the original Transformers Sunbow Cartoon. This new recording follows the Autobots and Decepticons as they leave Cybertron and head into the asteroid field. You can check out the video below, and you can let us know what you think in the comments section below!

A few more moments of character that add some nice additional touches to each scene. Shame these couldn't make it in, but with a cast of at least 30 characters and a 22-minute runtime, it's no wonder some things had to get excised.

I was waiting for this. It ALWAYS hit a subliminal nerve for me every time I watched this ep, when Prowl says "We ARE being followed", as if it were confirmation of a previous moment where he was uncertain. That moment was cut from the show! "Prime. I think we're being followed". Beautiful.

It's the little things.

The way Cullen and Welker switch between Prime/Ironhide and Megatron/Mirage/Trailbreaker respectively..

And Latta's Starscream, often imitated but never duplicated.

I re-watched MTMTE today, I think it was well edited/cut, but it's nice to listen to these resurrected extended dialogues anyway! Thanks Moonbug & Dave!
