Last big party of the summer, folks! Let's go out with a bang!
Ultra Magnus: Just once, couldn't your attitude reflect the gravity of the situation?
Rodimus Prime: Not if I can help it!
Animation errors can be found in each and every episode, and some of these are quite noticeable. Characters are colored differently from shot to shot at times, robots that should be dead appear randomly, and sometimes, you can see the same character twice in the same shot. Another issue is the misplacing of animation cels, which resulted in characters appearing to be small/gigantic, and in some instances, full limbs and other body parts are missing.
The versions of most episodes on the Region 1 DVD sets from Rhino Home Entertainment feature newly-added sound effects, incomplete/incorrect/missing animation, some incorrect main titles, and episodes in incorrect order. Also, the version of season 3's "Dark Awakening" is the one with the voice-over at the end telling viewers to watch "The Return of Optimus Prime".
