Added DiffLines:

* {{Animesque}}: Due in part of being made in an [[TheEighties era]] where nearly every non-Creator/{{Filmation}} show was being outsourced to Japan. Most noticeable in season 1, but later episodes, like "Chaos", "Nightmare Planet" and "Call of the Primitives" all have styles that wouldn't look out of place in an anime from that time period.

''The Transformers'' was the first ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' cartoon, part of the ''Franchise/TransformersGeneration1'' franchise. It premiered in 1984. The writing and distribution of the series was handled by both Marvel Productions and Creator/SunbowEntertainment. Animation was done by ToeiAnimation and a few other (uncredited, just like its [[WesternAnimation/GIJoeARealAmericanHero sister series]]) studios, including Creator/{{AKOM}} in their first project, a third, [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Unknown_Generation_1_animation_studio unknown studio]] and several feeder studios[[note]]Creator/SeiYoung, Creator/DaiWon, Sam Young, Shin Won, Creator/TransArts, Creator/AnimeR, Lensa Film, Creator/ProductionReed, [[Creator/TMSEntertainment TMS]] [[http://user.tninet.se/~cio759u/teamwork/int4.htm Entertainment]], Creator/NakamuraProductions, ''possibly'' Creator/HanhoHeungUp, and Studio OX (who handled illustration work during the series' initial Japanese release)[[/note]]. AKOM's animation was generally worse than Toei's.

Added DiffLines:

** Several episodes, like the above-mentioned "Kremzeek!" and "Triple Takeover" further compound this by not being animated by either main studio and using completely different model sheets in comparison.


Added DiffLines:

** Though given that more than a dozen of companies worked on the show (Toei, AKOM and their contractors, as mentioned at the top of the page), this becomes a little more understandable, And a lot more glaring.
