Well...I noticed just about every mistake made in Transformers when I was a child.
Coloring errors (I remember an all-blue Optimus Prime in energon chains in the Dinobot episodes, I think)
Clones of the 3 seekers
Reversed allegiance symbols
Reversed color eyes
Sideswipe standing in Decepticon HQ by Megatron
Dead characters suddenly alive again
Characters colored like other characters.
Mini-combined gestalts fighting next to their components
Inconsistent character voices
I remember debating with friends how Megatron and Soundwave shrank when they transformed and we decided it was due to molecular compression that was built into certain Transformers if it suited their alternate mode.
One of my favorite moments was when Megatron transformed into his gun mode but he only shrunk a little bit, then magnetically attached to the underside of Starscream's jet mode. Rubber bands made that a fun way to play as a child with them.
If you watch the episode from Season 1 where they go to the Inca temple, you can see in the last fight that Reflector's gun is Shockwave in gun mode.

You got to remember, these were actually long commercials to get us to get our parents to buy these things.
A lot of the episodes were rushed, to keep costs down, and to just have something on the air.
I forget now if it was someone from the Joe cartoon or the TF cartoon, but there was a quote somewhere that says they were basically pushing out script after script to get episodes going, which explains the wackyness of some of them.
Most of the shows these days are very consistent with their storylines and whatnot.

I read a profile on Wickepedia re: Octane. It said they replaced Blitzwing for him because Blitzwing's toy was no longer available and Octane's was coming out soon. They nevew even explained who he was or where he came from or even why he was exiled. Of course, about three episodes later who was in the background? Why golly, it was Blitzwing.

Im sure Ill get some flak from this but Im going to come out and say it; "I think transformers was an overrated toy line, comic book, and cartoon series. I know how popular it is and Im sure over the years its made more money than GIJOE ever did but I just cant help how stupid some of the characters were/what they transformed into / from. I felt like everything was just a big toy commercial and we just keep making more crap to sell. The coolest thing about the Transformers in the 80's was the MOVIE. I want so badly to like them but I can never find a transformer that I think would really fit in with my JOEs or other 4" figures.

Yes, the Transformers cartoon was implausible and, at times, inept. Honestly, though, I've never expected much out of a Sunbow cartoon, in terms of writing.
