Marvel Comics continuity
When the Transformers cause their first ruckus upon waking up in 1984, Dum Dum thinks it's a situation worth looking into.
It doesn't appear that the two ever actually looked into what was going on in Oregon at all. Or if they did, they sure didn't do anything about it.
- In a television movie based on Nicholas' adventures, the role of Dum Dum was played by none other than Garry Chalk, the voice of Optimus Primal and Unicron Trilogy Optimus Prime. (Nicholas, on the other hand, was played by David Hasselhoff, who has yet to voice a Transformer, but really ought to.)
