Frenzy's (Frénétik in Canada and Tremor in Italy) alternate mode is a cassette. He is a Decepticon, and is often partnered with Soundwave, along with other cassette Decepticons Ravage and Laserbeak. Because of his coloration on the original cartoon, he is sometimes identified as Rumble. The toy is colored blue and grey, but his cartoon model is red, black, and gold.

In the TV series, Frenzy wasn't as prominent a character as Rumble, He first appeared in Countdown To Extinction and made few appearances after that, usually appearing alongside Rumble. The TV series accidentally swapped the color schemes for Rumble and Frenzy - Rumble was now colored as Frenzy and vice-versa.

Transformers is (arguably) the most successful cartoon ever with a continuously popular TV show and toy line for over 15 years. Transformers first aired and released its initial toy line in 1984. The original Transformer series lasted a whole three seasons and a few season four episodes as well as a full length feature film in 1985 before it came to an end in 1987. In 1996, Transformers came back in their freshest incarnation show - Beast Wars! Beast Wars experimented with a new idea of transforming animals rather than vehicles with a more dynamic CGI 3D animated show. Many die-hard Generation 1 fans originally scoffed at the new idea, but Transformers winning formula eventually succeeded in converting old fans with the new show sporting numerous Generation 1 references. Beast Wars lasted three seasons until it ended in 1999 with the toy line still going strong today.
