The Ark Addendum - Attack of the Autobots (part 1)
This episode featured one of the sillier premises of the old Sunbow 'toon. Megatron slips a personality destabilizer device into the Autobots' recharging chambers. The Autobots then wake up evil, and willing to obey Megatron's orders. It's kind of a waste of a silly but fun idea; I much prefer more modern interpretations like Dark Designs or Shattered Glass, which show just how evil a turned Autobot can be.
One thing to note is that the original Floro Dery concept artwork, shown here, is much more exotic than the simple beds with class coverings we ultimately got. I love how alien everything that springs from his pen looks.
