You do realize, oh BW fan, that most of BW was built off of the G1 comic. BW, while it seems to take from the cartoon in continuity actually used Simon Furman's and Bob Budinsky's mythic take on the franchise.
Beast Wars cherry picked from both show and comic. I don't think it was equally though.

I for one welcome our new red flamed, fish-lipped savior. May he always defend us from the scrap metal Devil.
