The MOAR You Know – Hound and Spike

While watching the first three episodes of g1 the other day, I came across something disturbing…

Hmm… Perhaps I should change the title of this post to Hound in Spike.


It’s a picture of what appears to be Hound, um, ‘reviving’ Spike…

… in a very uncomfortable place.

“What, like the back of a Volkswagen?”

“No! … Thank Primus for copyright law.”

Can you think of a good caption for that picture of Hound and Spike? If so, post it in the comments section!

  1. Very funny! :D

    Rodimas, it’s because Bumblebee isn’t a Volkswagen anymore, due to copyright law.

    And while I’m at it, what Sunstreaker says is a quote from Mallrats.

  2. [Brodie’s voice] One time my friend Hound got this hydro spanner stuck up Spikes ass. True story. He brought it with him from Cybertron, so the whole fiasco wound up on the news. It was embarrassing for Spikes relatives and all, but next week, he did it again. Different hydro spanner, same results, complete with another trip to the emergency room. So, I run into him a week later in the Ark and he’s buying another hydro spanner. And I says to him, “Jesus, Hound! What are you doing? You know you’re just gonna get this Hydro spanner stuck up Spikes ass too. Why don’t you knock it off?” And he said to me, “Brodie, how the hell else am I supposed to get that decepticon out of Spikes ass?” Hound was a weird bot.

    I had to do it since you mentioned Mallrats!

  3. Actually, ‘Bee isn’t a VW Bug anymore because Volkswagon doesn’t want their cars being associated with “war toys.”

    Funny, that coming from the company that made all the military cars, trucks, and vans for the Nazis.

  4. No ‘actually’ to it. :)

    You are correct, but it’s copyright law, in the end.

    If not for that, HasTak probably wouldn’t care what they think, just like back in the 80s. :D

    I doubt that they wanted their car in a toyline even back in the 80s, but, given the social climate of the day and its lower level of pc etiquette, the reason would probably have been less ‘we don’t support war toys’ and more ‘they don’t want to pay us royalties??!!’

  5. Most TFs from the 80’s couldn’t be sold today. All the cars were close models of real cars, and there’s Megs.

    I’m surprised no one sued over the recent original Optimus re-issue!

  6. @Dave
    That made me snort my oatmeal. I hope you’re happy.

    Also, thank you Matt, for finding my favorite screen shot of the old G1 series ever.

  7. No problem! Seriously, go look at MTMTE and watch this scene. It’s even better in motion.

  8. Oh, I’ve *seen* it. In all it’s outrageously inappropriate detail. I ran across an awesome animated gif of it once, but silly me, I didn’t save it. :(

  9. Haha! I almost made this an animated gif, and I was also considering making it a javascript rollover so if you put your mouse on it Spike would shift and close his eyes.

  10. I know this is ridiculously out of date, but I ran across your blog again while looking up the Swoop flail problem – so here’s a caption for the Hound/Spike pic:

    Road Ranger Danger!!! Road Ranger Danger!!!

    I now return you to matters occurring in the current decade.
