chief charlie burns

Something I noticed in Rescue Bots: Road Trip

When Kade freaks out about Heatwave driving the MHQ he yells “DADDY” instead of yelling “MOMMY” as one would normally expect. I found this both incredibly touching and a little heartbreaking. It really shows just how much Chief Burns has taken on both the paternal and maternal sides of parenting in his children’s lives.
It makes me wonder what happened to Charlie’s wife and just how long she’s been absent.
The writers really are incredibly thought provoking sometimes….

and of course, I always like to remind people on Canada Day of the wonderful Canadian talent we have within the Transformers franchise :D
(a lot more than I previously realized! look at this list!! I just hope tfwiki is correct on all these lol)

  • Peter Cullen
  • Alex Milne
  • David Kaye
  • Garry Chalk (*born in England but grew up here)
  • Tara Strong (VA for tfa Sari Sumdac, Slipstream, Strika, Red Alert)
  • Michael Ironside (VA for tfp Ultra Magnus)
  • David Sobolov (VA for tfp Shockwave)
  • Maurice LaMarche (VA for rescue bots Chief Charlie Burns)
  • James Raiz (comic artist who has worked on Dreamwave stuff and a few TF spotlights)

and, if sources are correct, then I think the VAST majority of the voice acting for both Beast Wars and Armada/Unicron trilogy [english dub] was done by canadians!! sweet  B)

I’m sincerely sorry if I forgot to mention anyone!!
