- This page deals with the associate of Sid Jones. For the member of the organization H.A.T.E., see Spuds (H.A.T.E.).
When the Purple Dragons leader Hun expanded the Dragons to a professional syndicate, Spuds was the field leader of the Northampton branch of the organization. He and his cronies attempted to establish the Dragons among other gambling and illegal arms trades. Sid had a history of unsuccessfully gambling and owed Spuds an enormous debt; to repay this, he tried to get to the legendary family treasure of his grandfather, who had supposedly hidden it on the Jones Farm. To give Sid a little incentive to be on time with the payment, Spuds followed him personally with a group of his people and his personal (and beloved) SUV.
Sid's cousin Casey, his girlfriend April, the Turtles and their master Splinter, were at the time staying on the farm. While Spuds attempted to intimidate his captives, the Turtles were began picking his henchmen off one by one. After Spuds and Sid had been overpowered at last, Casey asked Spud to cancel Sid's debt on the spot. Spuds only agreed after Casey used a Federation Blaster to threaten Spuds car, and after he had hastily promised to cancel the debt, he left with his comrades. The current whereabouts of Spuds remains unclear.
- The word "Spuds" is a colloquial term for potatoes (in the plural).
