    You know the scene: innocent humans going happily about their business ... until they realize the approaching car or construction vehicle has empty seats. This is followed by the excited announcement that, "No one is driving those things!" or some such variant.

    So now I'm curious: how many times did this play out in the G1 Sunbow cartoon?

    I only recall about a handful of times that something similar to that occurred once with the stunticons maybe one with Bumblebee the one you mentioned..... maybe one more that's about it

    Usually, it was a tip off to humans that these were Autobots or Decepticons.

    Kind of interesting that, in the live action movies, the hologram driver was only used in the first one.

    Dunno about Sunbow but it happened a lot in Marvel. Autobots later put puppets in their driving seats.

    There's two that come to mind off the top of my head. The final scene with the Stunticons in The Key To Vector Sigma: Part 1 and in the opening scene with the Constructicons in Heavy Metal War.
