Hasbro “How to Ride Your Dinobot” Cartoons Amusingly Evoke Dreamworks, Looney Tunes



Hasbro itself may end up marketing Transformers: Age of Extinction better than Paramount or Michael Bay. In these cheeky animated shorts that are most obviously riffing on How to Train Your Dragon, Bumblebee makes like Wile E. Coyote in his pursuit of Strafe as a would-be noble steed.

If the movies had more of this kind of humor, and less of the farting parachute variety, I suspect old-school G1 fans might even give it a chance.
