Wonder Wheels

Wonder Wheels is a Saturday morning animated series produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions that aired as a 5-minute segment on The Skatebirds from September 10, 1977, to January 21, 1978, on CBS. In the fall of 1979, Wonder Wheels continued to air on The Skatebirds when the show returned to CBS in a shortened half-hour version on Sunday mornings until January 25, 1981. In the late 1980s, it resurfaced in a different syndicated half-hour version of The Skatebirds on USA Cartoon Express and on Cartoon Network, Boomerang and as an interstitial segment between shows. A 17-year-old high school journalist named Willie Wheeler and his girlfriend Dooley Lawrence solve crimes with the help of his superhero motorcycle Wonder Wheels. Whenever Willie goes into action, he utters his catchphrase: "This looks like a job for Won-won-won-won-won-won-won-won-won-won-won-won-wonder Wheels!" and at the press of a button, Willie's beat-up motorcycle transforms into a pimped out version with a mind of its own.
