    OMG! the disappearance of skids and mudflap is a g1 similarity! !

    Well at least for skids. I was watching a review of g1 skids and I started thinking about him and the one and only episode he was in and that's when it hit me, skids was only in one episode and never came back (alot of people think that he died in that episode but you see him near the end of the the episode) so yeah you kind of know what I'm going with here!

    It's not a G1 reference man, they got cut because people didn't like them and they were ultimately expendable. The end.

    That is one hell of a strech. The Twins weren't in the movie because their scenes were cut. Their scenes were cut because many people didn't like them. Simple as that.

    To paraphrase, "Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar."

    It had something to do with Incecticons

    The name of the episode was "Quest for Survival"

    Heres a link to part 1:


    He's the blue van, and has one line "Robotic Insecticide?"

    Interesting, I've seen that episode a couple of times and yet I've never noticed him. Why couldn't he have been like that in ROTF?

    I thought Skids appeared in two episodes, Quest for Survival and Triple takeover.

    Not to ruin your theory but Skids appears in another episode but only in Car mode and dies in a sort of maze.

    The movies are all unintentional homages to the G1 cartoon - nonsensical plots and awful dialogue.

    so instead of people joking about where in the world is G1 Skids it can be Mudflap & Skids people can play were's Wally with.

    Perhaps people should take Mudflap & Skids toys on Hoilday with them and then photograph them in front of international landmarks - to show where they've been hiding. (like some people do with Teddy bears)

    ROTF Skid did not take a cue from G1 Skids.

    Maybe he decided to leave earth and stay away from the civil war, wouldn't blame him, he's been in two losing battles and was injured in both.

    Yes people do do that with Bears a lot (no idea why) - just a giggle I guess.
