Nominate Transformers 'More than Meets the Eye' to the National Film Regisry

The Library of Congress has the National Film Registry where they take the best films (at least 10 years old) selected by the public and the library for what they say is “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant". They will seriously consider the number of public votes when deciding on a piece for the registry. Cartoons are on the list. Since the 3-part 'More than Meets the Eye' series does qualify, all you have to do is email the registry and ask them to consider the Transformers More than Meets the Eye 3-part cartoon series that started the Transformers universe. Be sure to include the year that the series first aired at https://www.loc.gov/film/vote.html

"Google Alerts" lets me know whenever the National Film Registry is mentioned in the media or on the web so I can track how well we're communicating our message. Gotta love the Internet.

That's actually pretty cool. Be sure to keep us updated about the Television Registry and thanks!

Ok, so More Then Meets the Eye is out, and The Movie, is in.

I think Transformers: The Movie would be appropriate for the National Film Registry. This year is also the 100th birthday of President Ronald Reagan, without whom we wouldn't even have Transformers.

Not that I don't appreciate her taking the time to clarify but how did Ms. Ross even know about this thread? The Government doesn't have it's thumb in a lot of pies. It has it's thumb in EVERY pie!

I used to think the conspiracy nuts were just that: nuts. Oh what a fool I was....

Thank you for the clarification on the matter. That should reduce confusion.

Television programs ARE NOT eligible for the National Film Registry. However, the title "The Transformers: The Movie" (1986) is eligible and may be nominated for inclusion in the Registry. The Library of Congress hopes to assemble in the not-too-distant future a National Television Preservation Board and Registry similar to the National Film Preservation Board and Registry. At this time, however, there is no congressional mandate related to the preservation of television productions.

Sincerely,

More Than Meets the Eye and What's Opera, Doc? are for sure getting my votes!!!

All the films you see on that list have already been selected and are in the registry's vault rooms. What's Opera, Doc?, since it's on the list, has its honored place. What the public gets to do is select films to add to the list. Besides More than Meets the Eye, you can suggest other films like Return of the Jedi, Star Trek II: Wrath of Khan, and Tron or other cartoon shorts.

You can see the entire list here:

They are only movies on the list from what I can tell. You'd think that maybe something like General Hospital or some other TV shows would be on the list. I did notice that Return of the Jedi didn't make the cut, unless I missed it.

Here are the cartoons that I know of on the list:

Gertie the Dinosaur - One of the oldest known animated cartoons.

What's Opera, Doc? - A Bugs Bunny / Elmer Fudd cartoon

Duck Amuck - A Bugs Bunny / Daffy Duck cartoon

One Froggy Evening - A Looney tunes short (The singing frog)

And you can nominate up to 50 films. So if you want to include Return of the Jedi, go for it.
