    I did a quick search and didnt find anything so Ill go ahead and ask. While getting ready this morning, I was just thinking about how Wheelie is introduced as living in the Quintisson planet. My question is, what are his origins? He has an Autobot sign but did he always live in that planet or was he stranded there? I know most here hate him and he is not my favorite but I was just curious.

    just my opinion,but it's just how overly nerdy and pretentious he comes off.never seems to let anyone forget how brilliant he is.remember him telling ultra "i can't deal with that now" magnus about the planet of junk?
    wheelie is just annoying.
    a lot of people hated the relatively wimpy g1 bumblebee,but the tide has turned recently.

    Apparently his ship along with other Autobots crashed on Quintessa and the rest of the crew was fed to the Sharkticons. When the Dinobots were passing by he realized they were Autobots and introduced himself. My mother loves him, but we as TF Fans find him the most annoying TF character ever simply because of his high pitched voice and ryhme talking. I can take GI Joe's Roadblock's ryhming but Wheelie is too screetchy for my liking. THat's why he's considered the Jar Jar Binks of Transformers.

    I never found Wheelie annoying in the american season 3/4 series... but in Takara Headmasters he's annoying as hell.

    Well in Japan they master the annoyance level with annoying kiddie characters like Daniel and Wheelie. It's one of the many reasons I don't consider the Japanese only series to be canon.

    Actually, Ultra Magnus said that to Springer about Hot Rod and Kup getting shot down. Perceptor wasn't even a part of that conversation.

    I have a kid's book that tells the story about Wheelie. He was on a ship that crashed landed on the home planet of the Quintessons, and he was the only survivor. He was all alone, so he had to learn how to survive. Then, of course, we all know how he met up with the Dinobots, Kup and Hot Rod.

    I think the Sharkticons found the crashed Autobot ship and held a Gladiator-style contest, but instead of fighting to the death for their amusement it was a rhyme-off. Wheelie won with the best rhyming "yo mammy" jokes and was let go.

    I hate to say it, but I've grown accustomed to Wheelie over the years. I don't mind him that much now, but the rhyming will always be an object of contention for me.

    I have a feeling he didn't "survive" a crash. It think the rest of the autobots on his ship did a low fly-over and tossed him out.

    I did the Reprolabels treatment on a spare Wheelie I had. It looked so wrong to me afterward I had to put it away.

    I guess I really like the guy about as much as Optimus Prime does.

    "He can stay and guard the base!" :lol

    Maybe I'm in the minority but I never found him to be a problem or annoying really, granted he was futuristic Bumblebee and that part annoyed me, granted in Headmasters he was but the Japanese only shows were pretty wretched to me, but geez, he's like Megatron coolness compared to most of the kids in Armada and Energon.

    IDW should make a Wheelie spotlight where he gets gang raped in the end in an " I dont know how to quit you!" type of way.

    Wheelie: What are you doing!?!
    Kup: I wish i could quit ya, lad!
    Grimlock:Me Grimlock say! Your a pedo!

    Wow, that just speaks volumes right there! And I had to quote it so you couldn't edit it out later.
