    No, this is not about Ironhide being crazy!

    This is about doesn't Ironhide sound a little like Wacko from Animaniacs!

    Well because of the fact that he is voiced by Jess Harnell.

    But I was thinking of some scene like:

    "The Parents are very iratating, can I take them out?"

    "He's here, I smell him."

    "Autobots Attack!"

    When I here those scenes I think "Wacko!!! but in a deeper voice."

    Also because both voices are mostly based on The Beatle Ringo.

    I don't know how you got the idea that Ironhide's accent is based on Ringo. Ringo has a Liverpudlian accent, as does Wakko. Ironhide just has a generic British accent. Little bit different.

    That's like saying G1 Megatron sounds like Dr. Claw. Just because it's the same voice actor doesn't mean that every voice he does sounds the same. Hell, I did a double, no, TRIPLE take when I found out Jess Harnell did Wakko's voice because I never made the connection.

    MrTuesday just won the internet. And because today is Tuesday, the internet just exploded right in his hands.

    Yeah, sounds nothing like him. Though, it would be hilarious to hear Ironhide start speaking in Wakko's voice. :lol

    Perhaps you should get your ears checked.

    Indeed. Just imagine the giant robot with with huge cannons blasting the legs off a 'con, grabbing him and saying "Tomorrow I'll play the xylophone... with my butt!"

    Wow I had no idea he was the voice actor of Wakko. I can't really hear it, and I'm normally good at pointing out voices.

    Maybe because Jess Harnell uses a different voice than his Wacko voice.


    The Ironhide voice he uses reminds me of Jason Statham. Who i think sounds like a British Clint Eastwood.

    I have never even remotely gotten a hint of Wakko from Ironhide. Not in the cadence or inflections in his speech or anything.

    He sounds way more like that one mailman from Adventures in Odyssey. The parallels between the two are so obvious.

    That's because they hired a voice actor who knows what he's doing instead of casting some big-name Hollywood star who's never been in a recording studio before.
