Sunbow's Mutt wore his 1984 outfit, in shades of green ranging from medium to very dark. The brown vest was often absent, and he only wore a mask when flying SkyStrikers. In Operation Dragonfire he wore a modification of his 1989 outfit, with plain brown sleeves and green camo pants. In DiC's second season he wore his 1992 outfit with mismatched gauntlets (red or black on the left, yellow-brown on the right).

Mutt's dog Junkyard made 23 appearances in the Sunbow series, with a total of 1,004 seconds on screen, with animal vocalizations by Frank Welker. This dog resembled a (fairly small) Rottweiler more closely than the 1984 toy. In the DiC series, Junkyard made 5 appearances with 79 seconds on screen, looking sort of like a black Labrador Retriever in Operation Dragonfire and a large grey part-schnauzer in the second season.

MUTT had five dogs while growing up. He had a particular knack for training them to obey his every command. One time, when a prowler tried to break into his family's home, Mutt ordered his dogs not to bark as they surrounded and contained the would-be thief. The dogs did what they were told and the culprit was later arrested by the police. Now that's control. When he was older, Mutt enlisted in the Army where, after boot camp, he was scooped up by the G.I. Joe K-9 battalion. He is presently assigned to Slaughter's Marauders for duty as the unit's animal control and utilization technician.
"I've never seen a guy display more control over 'man's best friend'! Whatever he says, they do. He has them trained to never retreat, unless ordered to do so. In fact, Mutt supervised an operation where his dogs chased three Cobra agents for five miles before he ordered them back. Is that blind obedience or loyalty? We're still trying to figure that out!"

MUTT had five dogs while growing up and is a natural with animals. He had a particular knack for training them to obey his every command. The problem is that he gets along better with dogs than he does with humans. MUTT enlisted in the Army and graduated from Jungle Warfare Training School as well as Special Ops School. He was eventually scooped up by the Military Police K-9 unit. He worked with his original dog "JUNKYARD" for over a decade, but gave him a nice retirement at his family home.
He continued to train other dogs for the military, until he recognized one dog that stood out in particular. Carrying on the legacy of his original partner, MUTT & JUNKYARD II have worked together ever since. They no longer need to give each other audible or visible signals - it's almost as if they function as one organism. If the bad guys decide to put up a fight, they'd better be prepared to get ripped to shreds by a howling, savage beast, and then they'll have to contend with the dog!
