Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Hoping to use three fossilized dinosaurs to their advantage, the Autobots create a trio of Dinobots: Grimlock, Slag, and Sludge. Unfortunately, while the Dinobots are physically sound, they are mentally unbalanced. Optimus orders that the creations be deactivated, but Wheeljack defies his order - a bit of insubordination that may or may not save the Autobots from the clutches of Megatron. In most American TV markets, "S.O.S. Dinobots" first aired on October 27, 1984.
