  • Idk.. I never thought about it, Now I have to wonder.. I'll have to ask my little guy. Bumble Bee is his favorite.

    He says Duh mommy cuz hes yellow & black & looks like a Bumble Bee (now picture a 5 year old, with a Fohawk with a southern voice.)

  • On Bumblebee, you have to look at the original 1980s Transformers and it makes more sense. He transformed into a yellow VW Bug (the old type) and was the smallest and weakest of all the Autobots. He literally looked like a bumblebee, hence how he got his name. He became a fan favorite at the time.

  • We think Bumblebee is a great name and he is my son and grandson's favorite. My son won one of those stand up cardboard Bumblebees that are like 8 ft tall from a video store. I found a great Bumblebee that is about 2 feet tall that talks and does stuff at a yard sale that's probably like $60 new for my toddler grandson.

  • had to open cause my son loves em too, and I thought the same thing!

     Zoeyis- Even if you look at the original 80's transformers, it still doesnt explain why he would be named that. I mean on his home planet of... Autobot world?... he wasnt a vw bug, he would have been just a normal robot right?
