What Would Michael Bay Do?

Baysplosion  With Michael Bay intent on rebooting any 80s series, imaginable, I recently began to speculate what certain franchises would look like if given Bay's signature touch:

Of course Transformers has already been done, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is on its way in 2012. We could speculate on obvious choices like G.I. Joe, but let's think outside of the box of TNT, shall we?


Jem

The first words of the theme song for Jem are "Jem is excitement," and Michael Bay would make extra sure of that...with EXPLOSIONS. That's why, in the Bay version, Jem's super computer, Synergy, would not only project the holograms that make Jerrica's alter-ego possible, but would also be specially designed to DOLE OUT THE HURTIN' on those Misfits. Actually, if I want to speculate on what Jem: The Movie would look like under Bay's direction, I probably have to look no further than his Victoria's Secret ad:


Webster 

Since Webster is an African-American orphan adopted by rich white parents, I envision the Michael Bay reboot being akin to the Christopher Nolan-directed Batman reboot, but with more explosions. Possible casting for Webster? Why not the son of action-hero Will Smith, Jaden Smith? After all, he already has all that martial arts training from the Karate Kid reboot.

Care Bears

"In a word...devoid of love and feeling...there is only one who can stop the evil forces that threaten to destroy humanity. This summer, Shia LaBeouf is....TENDERHEART."

What other 80s shows could Michael Bay ruin improve with his distinct flair?
