Like the old guy Autobot thread, who's your favorite youngster in a TF continunity, We have Bumblebee, Hot Rod, and (shudders) Wheelie in G1. Also, Hound, Sideswipe, and Sunstreaker to an extent. We have Cheetor in Beast Wars We have (shudders again) Nightscream in Beast Machines We have Sideburn and Wedge in RID. We have Hot Shot in Armada and Cybertron while we have (shudders again) Ironhide in Energon We have Bumblebee and (shudders again) the twins in Movieverse. We have Bumblebee (again) as well as The Jet Twins. Bulkhead and Blurr might be considered as well. My favorite is Cheetor from Beast Wars.As the series progressed, he became more capable with his own abilities and he eventually became a a competent leader in his own right. Hot Shot from Cybertron also fit this since he matured through out the series and became the leader of the Cybertron Defense Team.
