Wheelie and the Chopper Bunch

Wheelie and the Chopper Bunch was a cartoon produced by Hanna-Barbera which aired on NBC from 1974 to 1975.

The series focused on Wheelie, a red Volkswagen Beetle, and his girlfriend Rota Ree. Wheelie made his living as a professional- and quite successful- racing and stunt car. Wheelie didn't talk but emoted by honking and displaying symbols across his windshield showing his inner thoughts such as a heart for love or a lightbulb for an idea. Wheelie could also produce any form of prop needed from his trunk through the use of special mechanized hands. Wheelie's regular nemeses were a 4-member motorcycle gang called the Chopper Bunch which included the leader Chopper, Revs, Hi-Riser, and Scrambles.
