In The Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye: Part 1 (1984), an orange Autobot in the form of a truck crane appears briefly to haul Hound up for repairs. This Autobots only appears in this scene, never speaks or transforms to robot mode, and is referred to as "Hauler" by Cliffjumper. Apparently, this was an early version of the Autobot called Grapple, who later appears in season two.

Starscream: Did we ever?
The second title sequence of Season 3 contains a number of notable animation errors. When the Sharkticon swims towards the screen and opens its mouth, it suddenly turns upside-down for a couple of frames. And in the last shot of the sequence, Ultra Magnus' head is colored entirely blue (his face should be gray), and Kup is drawn with Springer's head. These errors are easy to spot, since the appear in almost every episode of the season.
In Germany, the series was first shown in 1989, and of the 98 episodes, only 39 were released: all of seasons 3 and 4, and a handful of episodes from the first two seasons. These were misleadingly shown out of order, giving the illusion that seasons 1 and 2 happened after Optimus Prime's return at the end of season 3 and 4. Voice actors also alternated between episodes. The dubbing studio claimed that all 98 episodes were dubbed into German, but the missing 59 episodes have never been broadcast anywhere and their German dubs are presumed lost. Later in 1994, the Generation 2 re-edit also saw a German release, consisting of the first 26 episodes. The Transformers: The Movie (1986) was dubbed into German as a sort of "pilot series" for the Generation 2 episodes, hence why it did not use the voice actors from the original '89 German dubbing.
