Gristle as depicted in the DiC animated series.

Serving under observation by the Headman, Gristle and the Headhunters handed out small bags of drugs to needy clients in a dilapidated section of town. One client in particular, a young woman named Cindi, begged him for more drugs as 'the old stuff' wasn't enough for her. Gristle was unmoved by Cindi's plight, and gave her the option of either buying or not.

Overhearing their conversation, the Headman walked over and suggested he introduce her to a new product called "Spark," which Gristle accepted with the guarantee that Cindi never had anything like it before.

During the combined G.I. Joe/Cobra assault on the intercity distribution house, Gristle sent a video report to the Headman at his desert factory. Realizing the assault would have a negative impact on his business, the Headman ordered Gristle to pick up a pair of specific hostages at the hospital: the recovering Lt. Falcon and comatose Cindi.
