Executive Meddling: Hasbro originally intended the character Overhaul to be called Trailbreaker. This would have given the character the nice transition from Trailbreaker to Leobreaker. Unfortunately, Hasbro's trademark on the name had expired forcing them to rename Trailbreaker, leaving no continuity between the names.
Missing Episode/Screwed by the Network: During its original broadcast in a number of Eastern European countries, the show went off the air before reaching its final episodes, due to the first 16 or so episodes being constantly rerun for months upon months, stalling the series.
The Other Darrin: In the English dub, Megatron's voice actor is different in the pilot, and Lori is also voiced by a stand-in in three episodes.
