Kids reacting to the classic ’80s ‘Transformers’ will make you feel ancient

Most had no clue there was a cartoon before the live-action movie.

Fans had mixed feelings when the live-action Transformers movie came out in 2007. Some were dedicated to the old cartoons, while others enjoyed the updated versions of their favorite characters like Bumblebee. 

But no matter how you felt when the action blockbuster came out, you’ll definitely feel ancient once you watch these kids of today find out there were actually toys and cartoons before the Shia LaBeouf flick. 

The Fine Bros. do a great job making the older generation feel even more decrepit, introducing teens to ’90s jams for the first time or making them play handheld games from before the turn of the century.
