Charlene Sinclair is Earl and Fran Sinclair's fashion obsessed daughter on Dinosaurs. Beginning the series at twelve years old, her budding physical maturity is represented by the growth of her tail in "Charlene's Tale." Charlene is generally more interested in school popularity and the comforts of shopping than with real issues, and her typical phrase is a vapid chant of "la, la." She frequently gripes about her family or vents about her lack of social status with best friend Mindy.

Charlene's material-mindedness contrasts with the social concerns of her older brother, Robbie. However, over the course of the series, she gradually develops a greater appreciation of her family, of serious causes, and of the role of female dinosaurs, and she awakens to the possibility that there's more to life than allowance, popularity, and cute guys. She demonstrated maturity by watching the Baby ("When Food Goes Bad"), and later comes to appreciate her family, despite Earl's denseness and lack of knowledge of his own offspring, after spending time with Henri and Simone Poupon in "Getting to Know You." Other achievements include performing as part of the Sinclair Sisters for the USO ("Nuts to War"), gaining temporary fame from training the Cavelings ("Charlene and Her Amazing Humans"), and getting hired by WESAYSO as Earl's supervisor ("Working Girl"). She also discovered that the world is round, and not flat, when her muse mistook her for Copernicus in "Charlene's Flat World."

The final episode demonstrated how Charlene "Gimme" Sinclair had progressed from the days when, upon learning of Robbie's likely death, planned to turn his room into a "memorial walk-in closet" (Episode 223: Leader of the Pack). In "Changing Nature", Charlene champions the cause of Stan, the last Bunch Beetle, after corporate development leads to the distinction of his kind.

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

The name or term Charlene refers to more than one character or idea. For a list of other meanings, see Charlene (disambiguation).
Charlene is a human in the Generation One continuity family.
She shows up to work dressed like this. It's a good thing she daydreams about the Old West and not, say, gorillas.

Charlene is a country girl who works as a cashier at Wild Bill's Market in a small Wyoming town. She lives her life in her daydreams, yearning to be a part of the romanticized Old West she idolizes from old cowboy films.

Her coworker Wendell would like to date her, but she's too caught up in pretend adventure to notice.

Fiction

Marvel Comics continuity

After her old car had to be put down, Charlene depended on her friend Wendell's truck for transportation. One day after work, she convinced him to take a detour into the wilderness to find some old goldmine trails. Instead, she found an old wrecked van, turned on its side, with the radio still playing.

Wendell knew people who could get it fixed, but as she was pulling out of the shop, some crazy guy in a purple lamborghini tried to run them off the road. After the van pulled off otherworldly, impossible stunts to evade the other car, it introduced itself to her as the alien Transformer robot Skids.

You wish you were Skids.

Over the next few days, she became very close with Skids, as they were both daydreamers at heart. However, Skids' wartorn past caught up to him when Donny Finkleberg hunted him down, with the Decepticon Ravage in pursuit. It soon became apparent to Skids that he could run from reality no longer and must give up his daydreams, stop being her car, and return to the Autobots. Charlene echoed the sentiment regarding her own life, and decided she should probably stop ignoring Wendell, even if he was pretty dull. Showdown!
