It falls to us today to report the sad news of the passing of Ronald Gans, the voice actor who played Generation 1's Drag Strip. He passed away aged 79 on June 29 due to complications of pneumonia. In addition to voicing Drag Strip, Mr Gans will be remembered for Kanga and Roo on "Pooh Corner" and Sebastian the alley cat in the Disney Channel's "Dumbo's Circus", in addition to countless trailers, TV promos and other roles in a career that has spanned 50 years.

Did Dragstrip have any lines, then? Huh.

Yeah, I know, I can only recall two lines by Drag Strip, and they weren't in the same episode.

If he had any lines it was probably just him introducing him self when the Stunticons were made.

Of the Stunt'ers Motormaster, Breakdown, and Wildride where the only ones I can remember ever having more than short one-liners.

Yeah. Key to Vector Sigma pt 1. The Stunticons had typical introductory lines. "I'm [whoever] and I like to [something loosely based on his name]!" And in Starscream's brigade, he told Megatron to stick it up exhaust port. Or maybe it was tailpipe. Also, without having time to check, I'm pretty sure they all had dialog in Masquerade.

Break Down always seemed the most quiet to me. And Dead End, he had some fairly memorable lines and distinctive voice.

I think it was the yellow car. Not the Volkswagen though. The other evil one.

According to IMDB, he was 78, not 79, by the way. Born august 1931. Also, he is credited for 9 episodes, but I really doubt he was in all of them (I don't think FFoD parts 2 and 3 are correct)..


1. The Key to Vector Sigma: Part 1 & 2
3. Masquerade
4. Trans-Europe Express
5. Cosmic Rust
6. Starscream's Brigade
7. The Five Faces of Darkness: Part 1,2,3

He might have done voices for one off characters in the other episodes, you know, the "Ah need ah vacation" style guys, done the same time as he recorded whatever line(s) he did have as Drag Strip in the first part.

Weren't they all in Zone? Or was Detour one of the ones painted pink and called Gingham?

Detour is a car? Looking at the toy, I already wondered what it was supposed to be.

Sunstreaker? Jeez, I know vanity isn't the best trait a guy could have, but evil? C'mon!
