    Why does everybody hate wheelie?
    Is it his rhymes?
    Or his size? I mean, he has to be some sort of mini-con, right? Outside of Armada, I've not seen any transformers that size. His size renders him fairly useless, but I don't mind him.

    Why all the Wheelie hate?

    Because he's an irritating shmuck.

    I've never really hated Wheelie, to be perfectly honest...I've just never had any use for him the way the G1 cartoon portrayed him. I DID like the way that old Marvel Books "Wild Boy Of Quintesson" storybook portrayed him, though; even as a kid I liked the emphasis on the survivalist aspect of the character...I guess that's what made him more tolerable to me than to most others.

    Truthfully the only version of Wheelie I know is from the movie verse and everyone seems to like him more then the G1 version.

    So I guess you could say I'm lucky that I didn't grow up with this Wheelie!:lol

    There's just nothing about him that's interesting or endearing. His only gimmick is that he rhymes... aww? You know, even with Bumblebee you can argue that there's something about him that's interesting. There's nothing interesting about Wheelie. I don't hate him for it, but I sure as hell don't like him for it.

    i think the rhyming's hilarious,
    it shows he's not nefarious.
    he's sure not a minicon,
    no matter how people go on and on.
    it's all a matter of opinion,
    whether or not rhyming's your dominion.

    I never really hated him either. I actually used to think he was cute when I was about 13 (that was when I had only seen TF:TM, and not season 3, though), but I have a feeling that he might annoy me a bit if I rewatched the series now.

    Wheelie is just okay. I like him better in the comics because I can reread all his rhyming dialogue.

    I thought Wheelie was okay in Headmasters, which I watched in Japanese for the first time recently. I couldn't remember why I hated him. He wasn't so bad. Then I rewatched some season 3 and I thought, "Oh, yeah. That's why."

    Headmasters Wheelie doesn't rhyme and he doesn't have that irritating autotune voice. Headmasters Wheelie is fine. '86 Movie and season 3 Wheelie is nearly unbearable.

    I don't hate Wheelie. In fact, I wouldn't use hate to describe my opinion of any Transformer. It's just too strong of a word for this kind of situation. As for why he's hated so much, it's considered popular to hate on him. Though I haven't witnessed as much hate for him in the past two or so years. Seems to have died down, or I'm just not noticing it anymore.

    I envision something similar or equal to the rapping dog from the Animated Titanic movie...

    I always secretly hoped Grimlock would've eaten Wheelie back in '86. Who knows, maybe he could've made his own rhymes while shatting out the young lad's remains.

    Why should I hate blurr because you think so?

    Wheelies a pretty bland character I don't like or dislike him
