Default Transformers references in other media

This thread is for posting any Transformers references in other movies, TV shows, books, etc. that you may come across from time to time, however obvious, ambiguous, direct or indirect they may be...

So I found a possible one just now while watching Monday night's Grey's Anatomy (season 9, episode 14, The Face of Change). This was shown for a few seconds, right at the end of the episode:



It may or may not have been intentional - but I think it was.. Quite a funny episode, actually.

Mad TV have had a lot of TFs references. Simpsons had a TFs opening once too.

Yep, I also remember OP as a Jew segment on Family Guy, and didn't Soundwave make an appearance as well?

Looking at your screen cap above also had me wondering, why are Transformers and Care Bears often seen together?

The Professional with Jean Reno, Gary Oldman, and a very young Natalie Portman. There were several scenes in which Natalie's character was seen watching the G1 cartoon.

Awesome movie BTW

Episode 8 I think or 9 of the weird (and not for kids) Jap anime - Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt - the whole episode is dedicated to TFs with the two lead taking on the look of Optimus and Megatron - very funny coz some of the "adult items" in their rooms transformed as well

I sometimes hear the phrase "more than meets the eye" used on TV or commercials... I wonder if it was a phrase before Transformers, or if it has since become a part of vernacular for being well known and understood as to what it means (something surprisingly unexpected).


In the sitcom Roseanne, in the one of the early seasons, the girls are cleaning up their brother's room, and a Gen1 Metroplex is one of his toys on his bed (plus a Castle Greyskull in the back corner).
