    We see them a lot during season 1 and 2 but whatever happened to them afterwards like during the course of the next 20 years between Season 2 and TF:TM and even during the Movie and right after the Movie? Did they die or something or they just forgot to introduce them again.

    Thanks

    Disappeared into a plot hole between season 2 and the movie just as what happened with any resemblance of continuity in season 2
    The continuity returned during the movie but Spark and Chip were never seen again

    I was always under the impression that Sparkplug either got old and retired or he was dead. Not sure about Chip.

    Chip fell into a swimming pool and Sparkplug died of diabeetush.

    That's my guess.

    I've always imagined Sparkplug died of a heart attack caused by weight and an unhealthy diet, plus stress.

    Chip? Who knows.

    I would say they fell into the black hole with some of the other Bots that weren't shown to get scrapped in TFTM.

    Chip got really fat and Sparkplug died of a heart attack from pushing his fat ass around all the time. Unfortunately Sparkplug keeled over as they were crossing a busy road and Chip got hit by a truck and killed while stranded in the traffic.

    Or maybe Chip and Sparkplug finally declared their love for each other, got married, and now live on a tropical island somewhere. They're never mentioned again because Spike didn't approve.

    There were designs for an older season 3 Chip Chase. I don't know why they weren't used.

    If Chip had just hung around he could've gotten some of those nice robot leg frame things that helped Jessica Morgan walk again. Thinking about it, the Autobots could've probably easily done that for him years ago. Selfish metal bastards.

    At the very least a cosy exo-suit.

    Spark plug retired and stayed home and chilled on his porch drinking beer all day long. Lucky bastard.

    Chip... Well. The Autobots began shutting all the doors, turned off all the lights and stood very still every time be would come by. After a month and a half Chip got the hint.

    Somewhere Optimus was unknowingly walking around with a squashed Sparkplug stuck to the bottom of his foot.

    And Chip wasn't in the movie or season three because the Autobots made sure Autobot City didn't have wheelchair access:

    Perceptor: "Ultra Magnus! A cursory evaluation of wheelchair access indicates a distinct tactical deficiency!"

    Ultra Magnus: "In otherwords, Perceptor?"

    Springer: "Chip is approaching!"

    Ultra Magnus: "Arcee, transform Autobot City. Pull in all the ramps and make all the steps six inches higher. Convert the walkways to that riffled surface and put zig-zag barriers in all the doorways."

    Chip (on the City outskirts): "Awww... Maybe I'll try elsewhere..."

    Later...

    Spike: "If this doesn't stop him, nothing will."

    Bumblebee: "The explosives are activated! Let's get out of here!"

    Sparkplug was pressed into rebuilding Omega Supreme one too many times.

    Chip spun his wheels too fast because he was all full of himself after tearing a floppy disk in half with his bare hands (one of the 3.5 inch ones!) and achieved escape velocity. By 2005 he was sling-shotting around Neptune and slowly catching up with one of the Voyager probes.

    Wasn't it added to the fiction later (in like Binaltech, IIRC) that Chip Chase helped design the exo-suits from the movie, and was involved in the Binaltech project?

    Megatron took them out to the middle of the woods one night with his shot gun.

    According to TFwiki, Carly and Chip never appeared in the same episode during the entire US run.
    Yes, in fact, Carly is Chip.
