  • The last of the Jetsons' major villains, Mangler Mars, is featured in this episode, with Knuckles Nuclear and Mugsy Megaton having appeared in the original 1960s series.

    George is faced with a dilemma--especially with that of mobster Mangler Mars, who tells him that Star Bite must win--or George will lose his life. Mangler Mars is an even more foreboding enemy for the Jetsons than either Knuckles or Mugsy not only because of Star Bite's presence, but because of Mangler's threatening demeanor, since he is from the space mob. Imagine a future "Jetsons" episode if these three goons escaped from prison together and formed a chain gang...the Jetson family would need to have superpowers to stop the mob then...overall, a very compelling episode because of the element of suspense involved.
