One of my favorite cartoons to air over the past year has been Transformers: Rescue Bots, a branch of the Prime/War for Cybertron continuity which is admittedly a bit more kid-friendly. It’s a fun show with some great characters which manages to do something new, rather than the same million-year war we’ve been privy to for almost 30 years.

These are some of the funnier moments from the 2012 season (with a second approved, hurray!) with one of my favorite characters from the show, Chase, as chosen by his voice actor, D.C. Douglas (who you may recognize as Wesker from Resident Evil, among other roles). I like them all, but if I had to rank them, Chase would be in my top two with Heatwave (voiced by Steven Blum).

It’s a surprisingly good show for kids, as it turns out, and features occasional cameos from Optimus Prime and Bumblebee (complete with their Prime voices), plus a recurring role for Tim Curry as the villainous Dr. Morocco. Give it a shot, if you get the chance!
