    What was his role in G1 Cartoon? I mean we see alot of Autobots and Decepticons having specific roles like Prime: Leader, Ironhide/Jazz/Prowl: 2nd in command, Wheeljack: Scientist, Ratchet: Medic, Brawn: Brings muscle to the team. Decepticons Megatron: Leader Starscream: 2nd in command, Soundwave: Mission Obeyer. So How About Bumble Bee, Sideswipe and Sunstreaker what were the roles?

    Sideswipe and Sunstreaker were warriors. Bumblebee was... a guy that hung around with them? I like Bumblebee but he didn't really have a role.

    He was the kid-appeal character, and f- it, I know a lot of people will be all like "Oh, I hated BB as a kid", but I loved him. He seemed like the nicest one and he was the first Transformer I ever got as a 6 year old, so he served his "role" perfectly in my opinion.

    Supposedly he was their spy. He got sent out on a couple of spying missions early on. The rationale was that his small size would help him get in and out of places without being seen.

    Spy. He was able to get into places the others couldn't due to his size. Of course, the bright yellow seems like it wouldn't be the best choice but Decepticons must be colorblind so its all good.

    I love Bee! :D  He did a better job than Wheelie for sure. But Wheelie gets my respect too, for hanging out with Grimlock ;)

    I agree, he seemed the nicest one back then. I love all his incarnations though. :)

    Bumblebee was the spy and scout of the Autobots, espionage was his specialty.

    To this day, G1 Bumblebee is still my favorite version of the character.

    Maybe the Decepticons had plenty of bright yellow bases and facilities on Cybertron.
