Spuds is a member of the extremist group the "Committee to Rebuild American Patriotism".
It is not known under what circumstances Spuds joined the "Committee to Rebuild American Patriotism". In the Mirage Comics, Spuds was a member of the group under the leadership of his leader Skonk to persecute the fugitive student Michael Murphy, who had been abducted by C.R.A.P. to build a nuclear bomb to bring about World War III. However, in his escape Murphy had met the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and their family, who then went to any lengths to thwart the threat of C.R.A.P.
In their search for Murphy and the troublesome witnesses Spuds and his partner Bubba were attacked by Leonardo and Raphael, who had ambushed themselves in a stream. The surprise was complete, and before Spuds could use his weapon, Leonardo had already split the barrel with his katana and then kicked Spuds.
