Griffin Rock is having a heat wave, so Cody talks Doc Greene into setting his weather machine to Snow for a little Christmas in July! What could possibly go wrong? Who’s surprised Doc Greene has a Weather Dominator? (No one.) And who is “gonna hit that”? Join us this week for “Christmas in July”!
When Doc Greene gives Cody a super-advanced robot baby to care for, he enlists the aid of the Rescue Bots to help them learn about humans! Can they keep the ridiculously expensive Robo-Baby fed, changed, napped, and away from the constant danger that follows everyone on Griffin Rock? How long did Doc Greene spend developing synthetic baby poop? And how long will we spend talking about Leonard Nimoy instead? Join us this week for “Four Bots and a Baby”!
Cody wants to go out on rescue patrol with the rest of his family, but the old go-kart he found might not be enough to keep up. Maybe there’s something at Doc Greene’s lab that’ll add a little juice! Or, you know, put everyone in mortal peril as crazed nanites are set loose on the town, turning machinery both inanimate and otherwise into out-of-control monsters. Definitely one of those things. And who’s that very familiar name in the writing credits? Join us this week for “Cody on Patrol”!
Boulder and Blades get a little confused about the human concept of “pets” and accidentally let some zoo animals loose in Griffin Rock! But which is more dangerous, the cross-eyed lion — or the obsessive recycling lemurs? Can they get them back to the zoo before they do too much damage? And who thought a building made entirely of unprocessed recyclable materials was a good idea? Join us this week for “Walk on the Wild Side”!
Griffin Rock’s apparent sole news reporter Huxley Prescott is convinced there are aliens living among the people of Griffin Rock — and he’s not wrong, but he’s also very wrong! Can the Rescue Bots and the Burns family save the town from his “War of the Worlds” panic without revealing the truth? How many movies about aliens that the target audience absolutely should not have seen can this show reference? Can we just go back to rewatching the Lobster and Technology Festival Parade for the twelfth time? Join us this week for “The Alien Invasion of Griffin Rock”!
Griffin Rock’s Lobster and Technology Festival is disrupted by an unexpected combination of those elements when a canister of Doctor Green’s new “floatium” falls into a lobster tank! Can the Rescue Bots save the town from the suddenly airborne crustaceans? Does anyone in this town actually understand the scientific process? Also WHY IS THERE A LOBSTER AND TECHNOLOGY FESTIVAL!? Join us this week for “Flobsters on Parade”!
Dani gives Blades a scoop claw upgrade that makes him more useful in the field, but when it goes to both their heads, can they scoop-claw themselves out of trouble? How does it feel to out-asshole Kade and Heatwave? And isn’t this still an awful lot of mortal danger for a kids’ show? Join us this week for “Hotshots”!
It turns out the people of Griffin Rock have been making very bad decisions for a very long time, as we discover when the island suddenly develops a bad lava problem thanks to an old man-made volcano! What the hell, people!? Can the Burns family get along with their new robot friends for long enough to save everyone from horrible, horrible deaths? Isn’t this an awful lot of mortal peril for preschoolers? And can we stop singing David Bowie songs long enough to work in some references to 90s disaster movies? Join us this week for the second episode of Rescue Bots, “Under Pressure”!
This week we return to a higher quality of programming with the first episode of Transformers: Rescue Bots! When a ship of non-combatant “Rescue Bots” answers Prime’s call and arrives on Earth, they’re assigned to work with a human rescue team that’s also a family! Can they adapt to life on this strange new world? How dangerous can Griffin Rock possibly be? And what connection does this show have to both Transformers Prime and DinoZaurs? Join us this week for “Family of Heroes”!
Before we move on to the idyllic home of the Rescue Bots, we’re heading back in time to the days of Beast Machines to check out a different show about transforming animal warriors: DinoZaurs! And what we discover is IT’S TERRIBLE! Who are the Dino Knights? What toy company thought this was a good idea, and what American production company needed to fill time desperately enough to dub it? What is the sole good thing about this show? And how many of these things are NOT ACTUALLY DINOSAURS? Join us this week as we suffer through the first episode of DinoZaurs, “Dino Knights Revived”!
