    Scatman Corothers, the one that sung the theme song and was the voice of hong kong phooey, i think was the voice of animated jazz (he was one of jazzes) but g1 jazz was scot mcneil

    G1 Jazz = Scatman Crothers
    Animated Jazz = Phil Lamar

    Scott McNeil never voiced any incarnation of Jazz.

    Sublime has a pretty decent version.

    Didn't Transformers ROTF break some kind of B.O. record or something? Studios don't really make movies to win acclaim on message boards,they make them to turn a profit. So,in that sense,they "work".

    You just now are realising Jazz is Scatman Crothers?

    NO. NO. They do NOT ruin my favorite show from when I was a child. If I close my eyes and plug my ears maybe it will go away. It has to. IT HAS TO!!!!!!!!!!
