Debuting in 1974 on NBC, Wheelie and the Chopper Bunch aired for just one season of 13 episodes. Though the animated series didn’t last very long, its well-remembered by those who were watching Saturday morning television at that time.
The series revolves around Wheelie (Frank Welker), a red Volkswagen Beetle, and his girlfriend Rota Ree (Judy Strangis). Wheelie’s a professional racing and stunt car and the rotten Chopper Bunch are always trying to make sure that he doesn’t win his races. The members of the bunch are tough Chopper (Frank Welker), a sputtering three-wheeled motorcycle named Revs (Paul Winchell), tall and dumb Hi-Riser (Lennie Weinrib), and minibike Scrambles (Don Messick).
