Looking past the genocide of humanoids, these guys probably still have hearts and want to let loose. What kind of stuff do you think they might enjoy from the ancient culture of humans they're descended from?

Most of our stuff is littered with disgusting humanoids so it's pretty hard to think of some.

The 2014 series "Space Racers" seems like one they could enjoy. In fact, watching a couple episodes it made me wonder if perhaps these actually WERE the Mechanoids after they wiped out humanoids and were happily exploring the solar system.

Something like Thomas the Tank Engine would almost be good if not for the fact that it does have the occasional human in it, Mr. Conductor. Perhaps they could enjoy a censored version with those scenes cropped out?

Transformers suffers similar problems. Even if you took out all the human interaction, that it relies on assuming humanoid forms so much would be disgusting to Mechanoids.

I haven't gotten around to watching the 2006 film Cars or the 2013 film Planes. If anyone has, do you know if it is just vehicle characters or if there are humans in it?

Could Mechanoids enjoy shows about quadripedal animals? Biped-presented anthromorphs like Winnie the Pooh or Antz or Birdz would be a no-go but something like MLP where they stay on more than 2 feet most of the time work?

Comment: You probably think this comment is about you, don't you?
I'm gonna go with none. The vast majority are genetically programmed in such a way that they would not find pleasure in what most sapient beings would find entertaining, and the remaining free-thinkers of the group would likely have a cultural disposition against TV & film.

Petty tyrants thrive when they have authority backed by vague regulations.

They are anti-humanoid so I would think they would be disposed against the majority of film since it features humanoids, but why would they be disposed against TV which does not feature humanoids?

Even if they hate most of their human origins they might see something like Space Racers as a diamond in the rough, the spirit from which Mechanoids were born.

Most sapient beings probably would not enjoy this show, they would shrug it off as a weird kid's show that's hard to identify with because it's vehicles. Humanoid 'maturation' makes adults despise things which do not celebrate humanoids, only uncorrupted innocents can enjoy a show with pure mechanical purity of being a space racer.

Probably Disney Cars, or Disney Planes. Definitely Walle.
