Ba wip gra na wip didi bom
Transformers: the movie! I saw this thing when it came out in 1987 and I’ve been looking for it ever since.

Based on the TV cartoon from the eighties, it features the voices of no lesser luminaries than Orson Welles, Leonard Nimoy, Robert Stack, and Scatman Crothers (Judd Nelson too, but ‘luminary’ seemed a little much). Eighties hair-band music. Cheap, primitive animation. Aaah. Couple more swear words than one might expect from a kids’ movie, too. And the Decepticons (bad-guy robots, if you don’t know) appear to have finally figured out that if they actually aim their weapons at the Autobots (good-guy robots), they might win a battle once in a while. There’s a lesson in that for all of us.

It'll take a bit of study, but I'm sure that title means something in Cherokee.

I'll check it out (someday).
It's the 'universal greeting' from the movie. Wouldn't really surprise me if it was an actual language.
