Synopsis by Hal Erickson
It looks bad for the Autobots when their three Dinobots -- Grimlock, Slag, and Sludge -- align themselves with the Decepticon cause. Hoping to stave off disaster, the Autobots create two more Dinobots, Swoop and Snarl -- this time making certain that there will be no slip-ups. The battle royal that ensues almost takes viewers' minds off that mysterious meteorite that slammed into Earth early in the episode. "War of the Dinobots" was first made available to American viewers on November 24, 1984.
