Surely "Turbo Teen" should have been in the Top 5 :D

A teenager who turned into a car? Brilliant Idea!

But it was so damn cool with the extendable wheels, claw, and transforming from van to police car?

*wiki's it*

Apparently it aired from 1984 to 1985. Since that time period coincided with another cartoon about transforming vehicles, we must conclude that transforming robots were more interesting than a transforming teen.

'Specially since there's not much you can do if you can only turn into a bog-standard car. Seriously, WTF?
