    I wonder what could have happened to Sparkplug? I wonder if he had a massive stroke watching one of Spikes tennis matches?

    I heard he was written into Season 3 epsiode one but his one and only line was taken by Blaster.
    If he died, he probably didnt see 60.

    Does anybody else wish there was a cartoon that picked up after season two and led up to the movie? Besides scrambled city?

    And lastly, what a turn season 3 could have taken if Sparkplug was in the Autobot crypt in Dark Awakening..Daniel could have been attacked by his grandfathers corpse.

    Well since spike became an adult he didn't hang out with his dad anymore. Also sparkplug probably just got old and quit going on adventures with the autobots.

    Yeah I often dreamed of another animated G1 movie or serie or something that would fill the 11 years ? between season 2 and the movie, leading to how the Decepticons took back Cybertron.

    there is definitely some interesting areas to be explored like maybe the introduction of ultra magnus, arcee and hotrod, megatron conquering cybertron or maybe the building of autobot city on earth but the main problem could be that you have a cast cannot die or change dramatically and look how much fandom moans at prime for not killing a character every five minutes

    Chip Chase ended up becoming a Paralympic athlete but failed to win any gold so he became a recluse and died alone.

    Sparkplug ended up changing his name to Kevin Dunn and became an actor.

    It would be possible to kill a few season 1-2 characters that didn't appear in the movie and were never seen in season 3 though.

    If season 2 takes place in 1985, then it's closer to 20 :p

    I can't remember where I read it...I thought here on these boards years ago...but I think an early script for the movie had some flashback with Sparkplug getting killed by the Cassetticons but was axed for obvious reasons. I'll have to do some searching and see if I can find it, it's probably been 7-8 years since I read it.

    Edit: I don't have time to do an extensive search so just assume I'm crazy for now...

    Sparkplug got mixed up with a bad crowd, and went through a downward spiral of drugs, drinking, and depression. Then due to some bad luck and poor timing, he was tossed into space, and floated through the abyss aimlessly until being intercepted by Unicron. Unicron turned him into part of Cylonus' armada. He was never to be seen again.

    I would actually love to see IDW do a comic for this. It would definitely be interesting to see what they would come up with.

    I love these answers...I tried to start a thread like this a couple days ago and it was closed down by a moderator for being inappropriate. Im glad this time it wasnt deemed too harmful!

    The 85-04 gap would make for the perfect cartoon for oldheads.

    I like to think Sparkplug and Chip died at autobot HQ when Trypticon destroyed the base.

    The is the f*&*ing creepiest thing I think I've ever heard in my life. I love it!

    Was Sparkplug helping Chip tear up all the floppy disks since in the year 2005 (is is it 2006 already in the FFOD episodes?) floppy disks had become obsolete and all the info had been transferred to flash drives.

    Because of the inconsistencies between seasons I believe that season 1,2,3 and the movie exist in separate continuities from each other. It I possible that Sparkplug never existed in season 3
