Episode Summary

EDIT
Surprise Party
AIRED:
Daniel gets a big birthday surprise from family and friends. However, tragedy almost befalls Wheelie, but is thankfully averted by Ultra Magnus. Given the recent birthday festivities, Wheelie and Daniel know exactly how to return the favor. They get down to some party planning, but unfortunately for them, the date of Ultra Magnus' birthday is completely unknown. A hall of records near Cybertron may hold the information, but Cyclonus and a lot of trouble also await Wheelie and Daniel there.moreless

  • Barely worth watching.

    I know that Daniel and Wheelie were supposed to be this season's version of Spike and Bumblebee, but they weren't. Wheelie was annoying from his first appearance in The Movie, and Daniel wasn't *that* bad at the start, but he got worse and worse. To me this episode shows how much the series came off more as a kiddie show than it did in the first two seasons.



    Apparently wanting to risk their lives to find out Ultra Magnus's birthday, Daniel and Wheelie head out to a records asteroid to find the information. Why don't they have information like this on Cybertron? I don't know. I also don't know why they bothered making episodes like this.



    This is one of those episodes I watch only when I've decided to sit through the entire season one episode at a time. This is not an episode that I would ever get the urge to watch for its sheer enjoyment, because it's simply not enjoyable.moreless
