Transformers: Robots in Disguise is an American-Japanese animated robot superhero television series for children produced by Hasbro Studios and Darby Pop Productions in the United States for Cartoon Network. It was also animated by Polygon Pictures in Japan. It is the stand-alone sequel to Transformers: Prime that ran from 2010-2013 on The Hub Network, featuring characters (most of whose voice actors reprise their roles) and storylines mostly self-contained from the events of its predecessor as well as an overall more lighthearted tone. Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman (the executive producers of Prime) did not return to the new series. In the United States, the series ran on Cartoon Network from March 14, 2015 to November 11, 2017.
When new Decepticons appear, Optimus Prime summons Bumblebee and gives him the task of saving Earth. To help him, the veteran Autobot assembles a rogue team of young bots to capture the new enemies. The new Autobot recruits include a rebel "bad boy," an elite guard cadet, a bombastic dinobot and a hyperactive mini-con. The recruits provide a challenge for Bumblebee because, while each is a fully capable hero, they are inexperienced when it comes to working as a team. So Bumblebee has to learn how to balance his role as a leader of the new squad with his job of fighting evil forces as he works to complete the mission.
