What Not to Alt-Mode is a holovision show. If one wanted to maintain a reputation as a tough 'bot on Cybertron, one would not admit to watching What Not to Alt-Mode.
Believing that they were going back to Cybertron, Skullcruncher asked Razorgrille what he was going to do when he got there. Razorgrille answered that he would beat up a traffic cop that ticketed him. Skullcruncher noted the toughness of the answer and replied that he was going to do something similar and not catch up on season 3 of What Not to Alt-Mode.
- The show's title is a reference to the British television series What Not to Wear.
