Before the Transformers were, inevitably, carted off to a Michael Bay film to blow up the world, they were once little kids. (Um…what?) If you can suspend reality for five minutes and accept this premise, you can accept this series that’s designed to teach the littlest of children all about safety and avoiding hazards.
The original main group of Autobots who take part in Rescue Bots are Chase, Heatwave, Blades and Boulder. Say what you want about the hokey-ness of this series, but a. it’s for your children, and b. it’s the longest-running Transformers series to date, having surpassed the original Transformers series of the 1980s, which only ran for 98 episodes.
