Bluestreak's biography described him as a highly incessant talker; he simply couldn't stop. Other Autobots didn't mind this, as it helped to lighten their mood. Despite this Bluestreak had a darker side - he loathed the war and fighting in it due to the Decepticons' annihilation of his home state in the war on Cybertron. When speaking of fellow Autobot Wheeljack, Bluestreak joked that "That guy can build a neutron bomb out of a wristwatch and a rusty can." He turns into a silver Datsun.
According to original tech spec notes written by Bob Budiansky found at Iacon One in 2006 the original name for Bluestreak was Blue Streak.
Bluestreak's character was not developed too far but his reluctance to fight was absent in the series. He was mainly used as a soldier and sometimes as comic relief due to his witty comments.
Bluestreak originally appeared as one of the original Autobots on Earth. He, along with the rest of the Season 1 Autobots and Decepticons, crash landed on Earth and went into a 4 million year stasis lock. He was reactivated in 1984 and given the alternate mode of a Datsun 280ZX. In the pilot episode, Bluestreak's first star appearance saw him pursuing a hot-headed Ironhide who took off to pursue the Decepticons. Bluestreak tried to talk some sense into him but they ended up in a dogfight with Skywarp. Skywarp teleported and shot Ironhide from behind, injuring his back. Ironhide crashed into a lake and Bluestreak swam to his rescue.
In the episode "Roll for It", Bluestreak and his twin brother Prowl are almost killed after they attempt to ambush a weakened Starsceam, Soundwave and Thundercracker in a military hangar.
Bluestreak also participated in the Trans-Europe Express, a charity race from Paris, France to Istanbul, Turkey. The race was rigged by the Decepticons in order to capture American driver Auggie Cahnay's state-of-the-art vehicle. The alloy from the engine would be used to house the Pearl of Bahoudin(sp?), a device that could control the weather. The Stunticons steal the car and the arrogant Auggie is forced to drive Bluestreak for the remainder of the race. They end up winning the race and run off with Bumblebee and Tracks to face the Decepticons.
His last known appearance was in The Transformers: The Movie, where he is briefly seen helping Kup and Huffer move a roadblock just after Hot Rod starts shooting at the Decepticon shuttle. Even though Bluestreak's name wasn't on the Autobot casualties list for the movie, because Huffer's name was listed as dead in a future episode because he was outside the city, it is possible that Bluestreak fell as well or retreated from the fight altogether. Bluestreak was not seen again after The Transformers: The Movie, possibly due to voice actor Casey Kasem's departure from the show.
