    What're some jokes that just didn't hit the mark in a TF show?

    I'll start off with Mirage's joke that the ship was full at the end of MTMTE Part 3.

    I'll also go with Mirage and Cliffjumper rolling around together in the episode Traitor (I think).

    I actually thought Mirage's "Ship was full!" quip to be very witty, rather than funny.

    Everything Rattrap or Quickstrike said. I know they got a lot of supposedly humourous lines but their annoying voices really ruined them, at least for me.

    The whole of 'Carnage in C-Minor' and the whole of 'B.O.T'.

    Yeah, B.O.T. and Carnage in C-Minor were lame episodes. My brother and I skip watching those episodes.

    If we are going to dig into the whole history then I've got to say I didn't find Skids or Mudflap very funny. I understood what they were making fun of but I just find would be gangstas to be so annoying.

    Rattrap usually just irritated me with every attempt at humor he delivered.

    I was watching a little BW S2 today and I cringed every time Quickstrike came on the screen. Blah. Ugly, annoying, one-note character.

    I don't agree on Rattrap though. I find him funny.

    To be completely honest, I never liked any of Rattrap's schtick. He was like a weird robot Joe Pesci. Don't get me wrong, I love Beast Wars and a big Scott McNeil fan. But Rattrap's voice and jokes always rubbed me the wrong way. All the running Megatron "YEEESSS," Waspinator, and Dinobot running gags I can't get enough of. "We're all gonna die" on the other hand got old for me after the second time.

    In Beast Wars whenever anyone (Usually Cheetor, sometimes Airazor) tries to say something "cool" - "Ultra Gear!" and all that crap. It felt forced and dated in 1996, so you can only guess how lame it seems now.

    After recently getting the new G1 cartoon DVDs, I expected every attempt at humor/banter to be cheezy and/or lame. A lot of it was, but I'm pleasantly surprised at the amount that comes off more witty and clever than my kid-brain remembered. (There's a lot of entertainment to be had just listening to Lord Chumley & Dinsmore talking to each other. :)

    A lot, but not all of, the jokes in BM really seemed to contrast the feel of the series as a whole, and I fail to laugh at most of them.

    Beast Machines had jokes in it?

    Anyway, the one thing I find to be pretty unfunny is Cheetor's "Ultra Gear!" phrase. That is so 90s...
