Wheelie And The Chopper Bunch came late in the Hanna Barbera line of titles for Charlton, but was by no means an also-ran series to their "biggies" such as The Flintstones.
Indeed, if anything, the clever and quite funny scripts by,judging from the style, Nick Cuti and downright stellar art by Joe Staton and John Byrne (who handled the the art chores on the bulk of Wheelie's 7 issue run) made this one the standout H-B titles. Wheelie remains one of Charlton's funniest licensing efforts of the 70's.

This first issue, Staton handles all the comics stories, while Byrne gives us three illos for a two-page text story.


  1. I'm very glad to see one of Charlton's most overlooked gems get some due attention. This was a run I cherished and enjoyed immensely at the time. Better than the cartoon itself by a goodly margin.

    Rip Off

    1. Rip: from Joe Staton earlier this morning: "That was my mother's favorite of all my jobs. She'd ask me occasionally if I was ever going to draw "those cute little cars" again."
      Also-Joe and Nic have confirmed they will be providing a NEW 20 page E-MAN story to my fanzine The Charlton Arrow! Due to previous commitments, it will be around June before they deliver it, but it IS coming!

I want to thank Dr Emu a very powerful spell caster who help me to bring my husband back to me, few month ago i have a serious problem with my husband, to the extend that he left the house, and he started dating another woman and he stayed with the woman, i tried all i can to bring him back, but all my effort was useless until the day my friend came to my house and i told her every thing that had happened between me and my husband, then she told me of a powerful spell caster who help her when she was in the same problem I then contact Dr Emu and told him every thing and he told me not to worry my self again that my husband will come back to me after he has cast a spell on him, i thought it was a joke, after he had finish casting the spell, he told me that he had just finish casting the spell, to my greatest surprise within 48 hours, my husband really came back begging me to forgive him, if you need his help you can contact him with via email: or add him up on his whatsapp +2347012841542 is willing to help any body that need his help.
