While it is true that Firebert is the only one to make a Cheat-like noise in the cartoons, I'm still tempted to wonder if this is enough to make it that he speaks like The Cheat all the time, as he's only ever "said" one thing throughout the course of the toons, that being his The Cheat-sigh when Gunhaver told him to "stay here and think of a better commando name!" {{unsigned|President Cold One|16:45, 5 December 2006}}

[edit] FireBERT?

Now, I may be totally wrong, but isn't the Cheat's Cheat commando name fireBIRD? HRfan222

No, the line is "Firebert, you stay here and think of a better commando name." — Lapper (talk) 21:19, 10 April 2006 (UTC)

Yeah...HRfan222
Yeah. Firebird would be a good commando name!--Antisexy 05:01, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Speaking Like The Cheat?

While it is true that Firebert is the only one to make a Cheat-like noise in the cartoons, I'm still tempted to wonder if this is enough to make it that he speaks like The Cheat all the time, as he's only ever "said" one thing throughout the course of the toons, that being his The Cheat-sigh when Gunhaver told him to "stay here and think of a better commando name!"

[edit] Firebert (character) vs. The Cheat a.k.a Firebert

Shouldn't the character from Cheat Commandos have his own seperate page? The Cheat we all know and love in his Firebert suit from army and more armies, should only be noted on The Cheat's character page, but the Firebert from the Cheat Commandos TV show is no more The Cheat than any of the other cheat commandos are. Yeah, Firebird was inspired by The Cheat in army, but weren't they all?--Antisexy 05:01, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

I've actually always thought of Firebert being The Cheat. I like how it's never made clear whther they are two different characters ;-) Loafing 05:26, 17 August 2007 (UTC)
Well, the Cheat Commandos show is fiction within the H*R universe. From The Cheat's perspective, Firebert from the show doesn't really exist. It's possible (although unlikely, I say) that The Cheat voices the character, but they can't really be the same person.--Antisexy 05:48, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Dilbert Reference?

Could Firebert be a reference to the Dilbert comic strip's tendency to end character names in "-bert," i.e. Dogbert, Catbert, Ratbert, etc.?— Bassbone (TALK Strong Mad Has a Posse CONT) 21:38, 20 October 2007 (UTC)
