French-Canadian Transformers

Upon request. :-)

I tried finding the France french version, which is horrible. You think anime is poorly dubbed in english, you've never heard the dubs from France.

Ahh... the memories...

Cartoons were really badly made back then, weren't they? I'm so glad we have such professionally made wonders as Miss Dynamite nowadays...

Haha! I knew you wouldn't fail me!

The 1980's cartoons were badly made in comparison to the likes of Disney and even 90's cartoons, but the 80's was actually the animation renaissance at the time. Lots of studios in the U.S. and other countries began collaborating with studios in Japan, which helped speed along the process of creating weekday and saturday morning cartoons by using less frames of animation and quite a bit of stock animation (animations used over and over again, just like in anime, which was possibly influenced by early MGM/Hanna-Barbarra cartoons, ie The Flintstones). The cartoons meant for TV before the 80's hardly had any implication of the third dimension; the cels of the characters had flat colors and no shading. Took more time and money to create too, because even though the cels were usually simply colored, the animators used more frames of animation. The 80's brought along change for cartoon animation. Children were watching more varieties of cartoons, especially ones with growing toylines. He-man and the Masters of the Universe was a cartoon that was notorious for being cheaply done, but what can you expect when your studio has to chuck out a cartoon for almost everyday of the week, not to mention you have other cartoons to create for numerous other toylines. Other animation companies known for toy/comic-based cartoons are Sunbow/Marvel Productions (GiJoe, Transformers, My Little Pony, Go-Bots (LOL), etc.) and DiC (Popples, Sailor Moon, Princess Tenko (spl?)).

I for one loved The Transformers. Besides Voltron, it opened the floodgates of the Big Robot/Mecha genre for me. I'm anticipating the new Transformers film coming out this summer.

This is bad, but it's high art compared to the GI*JOE one. At least they don't sound like their sedatives are kicking in.

I can actually still stand "Les mondes engloutis", though the 2nd season should have been better. Oddly enough, I think the series were aired with subtitles, instead of the customary dubbing. (Dubbing is only done for children's programmes and films here. Which is supposedly the reason we're one of the countries with the best average understanding of English.)
