Brief Summary:
Shades of Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Sideswipe, Strongarm,  Fixit, Grimlock,  Drift, Slipstream, Jetstorm are aptly named robot heroes.  Add to their mix humans Russell and Denny Clay and Autobots Drift, Slipstream, Jetstorm, and Windblade .  Then set them against bad guy Steeljaw and the escaped Deception prisoners. The battle to save Earth is on.

Only My Opinion:
Daytime Emmy nominated TV animated action Transformers: Robots on Disguise, wow!  Lots of robots, some humans, action episodes, villains against transformers–what kids especially boys consider cool!    With plots that emphasize teamwork, loyalty, and self-sacrifice– these stories have messages that todays young viewers in this 21st Century competitive world really need.
