Plot Synopsis

School is in session in the world of TRANSFORMERS: RESCUE BOTS ACADEMY and instructors Heatwave the Fire-Bot, Chase the Police-Bot, Blades the Copter-Bot, and Boulder the Construction-Bot are ready to train a new batch of recruits. Just arriving on Earth from their home world of Cybertron, young Hot Shot, Hoist, Whirl, Wedge and Medix have the honor of being the first class in history to enroll in the Rescue Bots Academy, a highly advanced training facility located at a top-secret base. With encouragement from Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and Grimlock, the new recruits learn the power of team building through exciting simulated and real-life rescue missions that highlight the importance of heroism, teamwork, and most importantly, friendship. TRANSFORMERS: RESCUE BOTS ACADEMY had its official series premiere on Saturday, January 5, 2019 from 9-10am ET/6-7am PT, as Discovery Family debuted four back-to-back 15-minute episodes:

"Recruits (Part 1)" (9am ET/6am PT) & "Recruits (Part 2)" (9:15am ET/6:15am PT): Optimus Prime builds a new team of young Cybertronians to train as first responders at the Rescue Bots Academy. However, the rigorous training takes a toll on new student Hot Shot and he soon learns that being a hero is easier for some than others. Trying to find his place on the Rescue Bots Recruits team, Hot Shot discovers the importance of working together in order to save the day as one of Earth's youngest heroes.

"If At First..." (9:30am ET/6:30am PT): At his teammates' urging, Hoist invents some new "cool tools" to improve their rescue abilities. But they fail spectacularly, leaving Hoist feeling awful, until Boulder teaches him not to give up.

"Bad Luck Chuck" (9:45am ET/6:45am PT): Hotshot has to baby-sit the damaged RBA Test Robot, who wont stay put.
