The G1 Tapes - More Than Meets The Eye Part 1, Part 4: Body English!
RAC - Wednesday, October 05, 2016


Transformers@TheMoon continues its exploration of a collection of audio cassettes containing dialogue from the G1 cartoon! Today they're focusing on "body english" - grunts of exertion and pain and other basic sounds needed to accompany action scenes. (There's also a single example of mild profanity from Chris Latta, in case you're listening to this in a work environment.) We also get to hear voice director Wally Burr forget Megatron's name - but bear in mind this is from everyone's first day of work. Click through to hear the audio!

Part 4 in the series, contains additional scenes and one muffled expletive. Transcript below:
