They were actually descendants of the originals;Maximals came from the Autobots and Predacons from the Decepticons. The show is about the two groups traveling back in time and the Maximals stopping the Predacons from changing the future (and protect the original Optimus Prime).


YouTube - Beast Wars - Code of Hero - 2/3 (fast foward to 4:00)

Keep up the fight Scott, but I do believe that we have a purist.

I loved watching cartoons in the 90s. I watched all the Marvel and DC comics based cartoons (X-men, Spider-man, The Hulk, Fantastic Four, Batman, Superman, many more). Beast Wars, Gargoyles were also among my favorites.

I don't think they make cartoons like that anymore. The problem is, those cartoons were aimed at older kids, ones that could follow a relatively complex plot for longer than one episode, value humor, drama, interesting characters, etc. Today, older children don't watch cartoons - they have video games and other entertainment. Cartoons now are the domain of 6 year olds.

I guess you're right about that. Two things about the cartoons of the 90s that I love are the witty one-liners and puns (they're still funny).

Hah
Not long ago I saw a Clutch Cargo parody. I wish I could remember how/when I saw it, but the absolutely still image with those moving lips brought back memories.
My kids grew up on Sailor Moon, He-Man and Thundercats (Thunder-Thunder-Thunder-Thunder-CATS.)
When I was a kid, I loved those wordless old-school black and white cartoons because they did what cartoons do best: They were silly and escapist.
On Saturday morning, we used to watch Paul Terry cartoons.
They are on YouTube.

I remember seeing cartoons that caricatured Katharine Hepbern, Jack Benny, etc (of course at the time, I had no idea who they were.) I loved the sing-along cartoons with the bouncing ball.

When my kids were big enough to enjoy cartoons, the cartoonists had developed social awareness and no longer made cartoons that contained insensitive racist themes.

One of my little girls favorites was Johnny Quest. Johnny and his sidekick Hadji were experts with automatic assault weapons and would mow down hundreds of adversaries of varying ethnicity in each episodes.

Now we watch CGI cartoons like Shrek an Wal-E and wish they were Big Nose Indians with Jonny Quest assault weapons.
LOL
You never disappoint, Freddy.
As a kid, I think my favorite cartoon was Astro Boy.
I liked Mighty Mouse too, but Astro Boy was the coolest. He could fly, and made little explosive turbo jet noises whenever he walked.
I see that, in the endless quest to cash in on Boomer memories (and create a new cash cow for today's kids) an Astro Boy movie is coming out.
Which leads me to my point:
Japanese anime is imaginative and beautiful--and it's made today.
