The unnamed newscaster who appears throughout the episode is Hector Ramirez, a character created by Buzz Dixon
as a parody of Geraldo Rivera
. Originally intended as a onetime character for the G.I. Joe episode G.I. Joe: Twenty Questions
(1985), Ramirez would later appear in other Hasbro based productions, Transformers, Jem
(1985), and InHumanoids
(1986). According to Dixon, this was meant to imply that the four series took place in the same universe. See more
