do you need to use the Wii's CC/CCP to play Wii games on the WiiU or can you use the gamepad? if so, can you play them on the screen as well?

Can't use the gamepad for any Wii functionality.

The Wii games play in a "Wii mode". The system in a way emulates the workings of the Wii and doesn't access the new functions of the Wii U.
So no, you can't play with the gamepad, play the games with the gamepad's screen, or use the Pro controller that was created specifically for the Wii U. If you want to play Wii games, then buy the controllers for it.

Those are entirely wrong examples. None of them have anything to do with an older system's games running on a newer system. If you're going to trash on what the TC said, then use actual examples that parallel what he's asking.

1.) why in the world did you quote yourself?
2.) stop acting like I'm a troll. I was merely asking a question because I thought that having the answer to that question would be kind of dandy. I didn't try to put the WiiU down in any way. I know it's hard to switch back to normal mode after having to defend the bloody console from the onslaught of trolls (what? are you feeling like the spartans in 300 or something?), but come on!
