->''"Since the dawn of time. The city of Botropolis has been home to a race of highly adaptable robots. Each year, the Council selects a team of Go-Bots to protect and serve the planet which needs the most. This time, that planet is Earth."''
--> -- '''OpeningNarration'''

''Transformers: Go-Bots'' was a series active between 2002 and 2005 as part of the overall ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' franchise. Aimed at preschool-aged children, it focused upon a team of robots from the city of Botropolis. These robots were sent to Earth to protect it from danger.

Unlike most parts of the franchise, this series didn't have a full-length cartoon. Instead four episodes, each 10 minutes long, were produced by Creator/{{Hasbro}} and Taiwanese animation studio Creator/WangFilmProductions[[note]]with their Chinese sub-studio Hong Guang[[/note]] akin to the third ''MyLittlePony'' series. Two of them aired in New York and Chicago only, making the cartoon extremely hard to find... unless you go on Website/YouTube, [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes that is]].

The toyline itself was distributed through Hasbro's Playskool subsidiary, consisting of chunky-looking robots that had (at first) rather quick transformation schemes. As such, they were marketed like [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GBmvKjRvUbU so]].

Despite some similarities, this should not be confused with [[WesternAnimation/ChallengeOfTheGoBots Tonka's version of]] [[MachineRobo the Machine Robo franchise]].

!! This show exhibits the following:
[[index]]
* ActingForTwo: Several characters share voice actors, due to the ridiculously small (voice) cast.
* [[BadassDriver Badass Car]]: Speed-Bot
** [[AcePilot Badass Plane]]: Areo-Bot
* CatchPhrase: "Go Go Go-Bots!"
* CoolCar: Speed-Bot, Mototron and the Racer-Bot Twins.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: The Racer-Bot Twins and Mototron.
* FiveManBand:
** TheHero: Aero-Bot
** TheLancer: Speed-Bot
** TheBigGuy: Strong-Bot and Beast-Bot
** TheSmartGuy: Buzzer-Bot
** TheMentor: The Go-Bot Council
** TheSixthRanger: Hauler-Bot
* FourFingeredHands: Areo-Bot (on [[OffModel occasions]]), Silver-Bot, Speed-Bot and Kid-Bot.
* FollowTheLeader: This series has a few similarities to ''WesternAnimation/LiloAndStitchTheSeries'' in its premise (Aliens that are unaware of their own strength, and the leads have to take them to a good place; or in this case, back to Botropolis for more training).
* [[MidSeasonUpgrade Last Episode Upgrade]]: Go-Brillium.
* MerchandiseDriven: It is ''Transformers'', after all.
* NamesTheSame: Despite having a jet for a leader (Aero-Bot) and Wang providing the animation, this series bears no resemblance to {{Hanna-Barbera}}'s and Tonka's ''Challenge of the Go-Bots'' in any way, shape or form.
* NeverSayDie: Surprisingly averted in "Racer-Bot Road Rally", where the word "death" ''is'' said at one point.
* NoAntagonist: The problem usually stems from one or more reckless, though still good, Go-Bots unaware that they're causing mayhem. They do promise to get better, though.
* OffModel: Not as bad as ''TransformersArmada'' (released at the same time), but still evident.
* OpeningNarration: Done by the ''Armada'' narrator.
* ShoutOut: There's a character named [[WesternAnimation/BeastWars Cheetor]] in the toyline, and Beast-Bot's gorilla form resembles that of Optimus Primal in ''WesternAnimation/BeastMachines''.
* SpiritualSuccessor: ''TransformersRescueBots'' is looking to be this. Also serves as this to ''RescueHeroes'', as both have similar themes and art styles.
* ThreeShorts: Sort of - The episodes ''were'' separate, but only 10 minutes long. This made it shorter than the average ''Transformers'' episode, which usually (if not always) lasted around 22 minutes.
* UnskilledButStrong: Reptron, considering the damage he makes in his episode.
* VerbalTic: Buzzer-Bot has electronic sound effects peppered into his speech.
* TheVoiceless[=/=]TheUnintelligible: Kid-Bot and Gas-Bot.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: According to the [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Complete_Go-Bots_Power! TFWiki]], there was going to be a [=BotCon=] exclusive Go-Bot. Unfortunately, due to Hasbro rejecting the coloring book that would have featured it, this never came to be.
