That episode deserves to be awarded! One of the best, most entertaining episodes of the whole series. So much effort and love went into that one with everybody giving it their all to make it the most it could be.

If not that one, then "Switcheroo" would the next obvious choice to be nominated. :D

The key phrase in all of that of course being, Pre-School children. ;) Don't get me wrong, I'm glad youngsters have a fun, entertaining, safe show that is well written they can enjoy, and it shouldn't be taken from them. It's just that as an adult fan who has supported the brand since the very beginning, I'd like a show I can enjoy as well. TF: Prime was a perfect example of this.

Age range has little to do with how good this show is. I'm an adult with no children of my own and vastly preferred/prefer Rescue Bots over Prime any day.

Prime should never be considered the standard that any normal TF cartoon should adhere to (especially Prime's awful first season, seasons 2-3 were much better). It was an exception to the norm.

SEASON 4 TRAILER!!!!!!



Consists of both new footage from season 4 and old footage from previous seasons.

Also, Cody's got a new, older-looking design, and we get our first glimpse of the new female Rescue Bot (despite what some suspected, it's not Medix).

Fellow Seibertronians, Hasbro Studios Shorts has uploaded a trailer for Transformers: Rescue Bots Season 4, which consists of both new footage from season 4 and old footage from previous seasons. We get to see that Cody has got a new, older look, and we get our first glimpse of the new female Rescue Bot.

As of right now you have to view it on YouTube, so check it out using the link below, and tell us what you think of the trailer. Are you excited for this new season? How about the new, female Rescue Bot?

So there's some kind of timeskip involved?

I'm guessing Garfias's voice dropped, thus necessitating that Cody be a little older to avoid recasting him.

Courtesy of Shout! Factory, we have some info on a new DVD release for the animated Transformers: Rescue Bots. The latest collection - Heroes of Tech - sees five miscellaneous episodes, grouped by theme. Check out more details below, before it's released in June!

The Rescue Bots team, Chase, Heatwave, Blades and Boulder, and a family of first responders will do whatever it takes to protect both their home and the world. They learn that new technology can assist them in wondrous ways, but it can also have consequences if misused. Join the Rescue Bots team as experimental technology turns Cody into an adult, a space elevator strands Doc and Graham in orbit, a new invention causes the entire town to sing instead of talk and more!


1 Transformers Rescue Bots: One For The Ages
2 Transformers Rescue Bots: Space Bots
3 Transformers Rescue Bots: The Island Of Misfit Tech
4 Transformers Rescue Bots: Too Many Kades
5 Transformers Rescue Bots: I Have Heard The Robots Singing

So, the included episodes are 29, 38, 39, 55, and 76. The first three are season 2 episodes while the latter two are from season 3, and all five deal with some kind of tech gone awry.

Though, with the last episode being the one that was nominated for an Annie Award, I can see this DVD being a decent sell.

I understand the hesitancy by S!F to release season sets because of the younger audience this is aimed at. But still...I know my son would love to have full season sets. This will be the 10th single disc DVD. By my count, only 49 episodes have been released (all DVD's together add up to 51, but S1E1 & S1E11 have been released twice). And seeing as how they are released by "theme" and not in chronological order, it causes fans who want the whole series to refrain from purchasing. Again...I know the show is for younger audiences. But I would think at some point, even if just on standard DVD, S!F would release season sets for those (like my son) who would want them.

Yes I now the whole series is on Netflix, but as we all know, things don't stay there forever.

Yes, they were actually talking about this at BC2013, his voice was *starting* to change then, but I think the recording for S2 had already finished, I'm surprised they didn't make the change for season 3, but it all worked itself out. -The Same thing happened to Andy Pessosa (Raf on TF : Prime). He had limited dialogue in S3 however, and no doubt they would have aged him also if the show had gone on.

Maybe your son and other kids who feel the same way should write to S!F? It's probably a long shot, but maybe if they hear enough demand from the target audience, they might reconsider.

Fellow Seibertronians, Dr.Va'al has pointed us in the direction of a new video previewing Transformers: Rescue Bots Season 4, and the introduction of the new female Rescue Bot: Quickshadow. Quickshadow, who was first revealed here, is set to join the cast in season 4, which is set to begin April 23, at 8AM ET. Check out the video and the summary - which can be found here, and let us know what you think in the comments below.

Big news for Heatwave, Chase, Blades, and Boulder: in the fourth season of Discovery Family Channel’s Transformers Rescue Bots, the Autobots will not only celebrate their 100th episode, but they’ll get two new friends, including the first female Rescue Bot!

ER and Doctor Who’s Alex Kingston will guest star as Quickshadow, the first female Bot, while The Last Man on Earth and Bob’s Burgers star Kristen Schaal will provide the voice for another new Bot, Chickadee, in episodes airing later in Season 4.

The new season of the Emmy and Annie Award-nominated series premieres with back-to-back episodes on April 23. “New Normal” and Bride Building” finds the Rescue Bots forced to reveal their extraterrestrial backgrounds to the good people of Griffin Rock, when an evil alien group invades the town.

It’s up to the citizens to vote on whether or not the Bots get to stay in town, but, spoiler alert, since the rest of the season revolves around the gang completing construction of the cool new Mainland Training Center – as seen in the Season 4 trailer above – it’s probably safe to assume Heatwave and the gang will remain Griffin Rock presences for the foreseeable future.

Transformers Rescue Bots Season 4 premieres April 23 at 8 a.m. on Discovery Family Channel

Can't wait to see what Chickadee looks like so people can draw her in a Mabel sweater....

We have had weird names before but...Chickadee

What kind of name is Chickadee?

I wonder if it's a code name to keep the character secret until their debut.
