A line of toy robots from the 1980s, made by merging two existing Japanese toylines (Diaclone and Microman) together. Divided into two factions, the Autobots (good) and Decepticons (evil) fought each other endlessly in the TV show and comics that followed. They had the ability to change into various items, mainly vehicles. Their toyline, unlike other 80s toys, continued to be popular in various incarnations through the 1990s and have enjoyed a greater resurgence today due to the popularity of 80s nostalgia.
The Transformers are transforming robots or "robots in disguise".

By far the best and most innovative cartoon known to mankind.
Transformers is the last cartoon to display any sort of cool animation violence, since those wanker parent groups decided that violence on TV caroon shows provokes violence in real life. If the parents were accountable for their childrens attitudes then we wouldn't have the problem. Your a pack of morons.
