EDIT
Kremzeek!
AIRED:
Routine matters accidentally result in Kremzeek, who is small, seemingly sentient and made of pure energy. However, this little guy proves to be rather annoying quickly. Worse, he proves to be exceedingly dangerous and the people of Japan are about to learn that firsthand. The Autobots and a local scientist have to move it to counter this literally growing threat. Meanwhile, an energy magnet plays a role in the Decepticons' latest plan.moreless

    Anyone has has anything negative to say about Kremzeek? I will kick your ass.
  • Kremzeek!!

    Ah! After all the new characters being introduced this season, it just makes me warm and fuzzy all over to return to the "good ol' days" of a more traditional episode. An exotic foreign location spices things up too! It's kinda boring though. Cute ending. 6.5/10
  • Transformers vs... Pokemon?

    A very funny episode with kremzeek, a ccreature similar to the modern Pikachu. The Autobots' reaction to things getting worse and worse is priceless. Like when the dozen Kremzeeks pop out of Blaster's chest (Prime: "I've got that sinking feeling…") or Teletran-1's dialogue when Kremzeek causes him to malfunction ("Warning! Martians are invading super markets across the globe to steal Earth's ammonia!"). And however silly this episode may be, it's actually one of the best plans Megatron will ever come-up with in his entire cartoon career. Had he built some anti-Kremzeek safeguards into his energy tower, he would've won. "Kremzeek!" is very goofy (David Wise did write most of the old Ninja Turtles cartoon, so "goofy" is his strong point) but at the same time it can be very clever.moreless
  • Shocking!

    Hello once again, it's your old mate Roy Stantz. Today, we're reviewing the Transformers episode "Kremzeek!"



    Megatron accidentally creates this little electric imp called Kremzeek, who seems to get a kick out of destroying any electric device it touches. Megatron is convinced that Kremzeek will be able to defeat every last Autobot, so he sends the little guy to the Ark.



    Once there, Kremzeek takes down 92% of the Autobot army in three minutes, until Sparkplug coats Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Inferno, and Blaster with an insulating compound. Kremzeek quickly escapes capture by leaping into Teletraan 1 and uses the Skyspy to teleport itself all the way to Tokyo, Japan; electronics capital of the world!



    The Autobots get to Tokyo via Omega Supreme, who also gets deactivated by Kremzeek. Meanwhile, 200 miles off the coast, Megatron, Starscream, and Soundwave are finishing the second wave of their plan: a giant energy tower.



    Meanwhile, Kremzeek takes a bullet train, and the Autobots chase the little creep all over the city with it wreaking havoc in video game arcades and causing the bullet train to run wild. Kremzeek eventually takes refuge inside the Shibuya Manufacturing Plant and starts destroying everything in sight. The Autobots meet Dr. Yoshikawa, the Chief Engineer of the plant, and try to come up with a means to stop Kremzeek. Yoshikawa suggests that Blaster use radio-waves to stop Kremzeek. The idea works, but Kremzeek jumps right into Blaster's chest. Blaster tries to fry the sucker with his own energy, but ends up only recharging the little guy. Kremzeek then splits into a dozen multi-colored little monsters and things go from bad to worse.



    The Autobots change their plan: the only way to stop the Kremzeeks now is to get them all in one place. Dr. Yoshikawa takes them to the nearest power plant and they create some high-voltage bait. All the Kremzeeks gather at the power plant, save for the original, which sneaks inside of Blaster. The Kremzeeks feed on the energy, combine and form a giant city-stomping monster. This just isn't the Autobots' day.



    As Kremzilla (the giant Kremzeek) wreaks havoc on Tokyo, the Decepticons unleash the full force of their energy tower, which drains Tokyo of all its electricity. The Autobots now come to a conclusion that Kremzeek that Kremzeek was nothing more than a distraction while the Decepticons built their energy tower. Blaster figures that they can use Megatron's own weapon against him. Prime praises Blaster for coming up with a plan for once.



    As a tired Kremzilla walks down the street, Bumblebee shows up and lures him to Tokyo Tower, where they use radio signals to teleport it directly onto the Decepticons' energy tower. Kremzilla destroys the tower, and the Decepticons retreat. Dr. Yoshikawa and the Autobots eventually arrive at the tower by boat and use their equipment to build a large cannon. Reluctantly, they use the cannon to disperse all of Kremzeek's energy, "killing" the monster.



    As the dust clears, the Autobots return to Omega Supreme and Dr. Yoshikawa offers to help get their friend up and running again. As soon as they start to lament having to take such extreme measures against the giant monster, the original Kremzeek pops out of Blaster's chest and starts terrorizing Tokyo again. Exhausted, the Autobots chase after the little guy once more. Alpha Trion said there'd be days like this!



    While Kremzeek never appears in the cartoon again, an energy beverage appears through-out the Dreamwave comics which appears to have Kremzeek as the drink's mascot.



    Even though it's a comic-relief episode, I rather like it. While Kremzeek and his Pokemon-like habit of saying his name over and over could get irritating, the Autobots' reaction to things getting worse and worse is priceless. Like when the dozen Kremzeeks pop out of Blaster’s chest (Prime: "Here comes that sinking feeling...") or Teletraan 1's dialogue when Kremzeek causes him to malfunction ("Warning! Martians are invading super markets across the globe to steal Earth's ammonia!"). And however silly this episode may be, it's actually one of the best plans Megatron will ever come-up with in his entire cartoon career. Had he built some anti-Kremzeek safeguards into his energy tower, he and his Decepticons would've won. "Kremzeek!" is very goofy (David Wise did write most of the old Ninja Turtles cartoon, so "goofy" is his strong point) but at the same time it can be very clever. At least it's not as bad as "Carnage In C-Minor" or "The Girl Who Loved Powerglide". Just relax and try to laugh.moreless
  • And I thought Carnage in C-Minor sucked.

    1.0
    This is a horrible episode. I cannot tell you how terrible it is. It's even worse than Carnage in C-Minor and City of Steel put together. And if you thought Pikachu was annoying, wait til you meet Kremzeek. That thing is obnoxious as hell and the animation sucks too. First of all, Kremzeek jumps into Teletran one and ends up in Japan. How is that even possible?!

    This episode just blows my mind. There are better TF episodes that this. The Ultimate Weapon or Key to Vector Sigma for example is way better than this crapfest.moreless
